Nissan Sentra, Sedan
#16 of 452 2002 Sentra

Went car shopping for my oldest daughter who will be attending community college (30 mile commute) in the spring. She currently drives a 89 Civic that has over 331K miles. Wife and I decided she should have a new vehicle. The Civic is getting up and mileage with some expensive repairs/maintenance due soon.
Visited several dealerships but ended up purchasing a 2002 Nissan Sentra GXE with 30K miles for $10,459.31 OTD including TTL. We put $800 down and are financing the balance for $250/month. Overall I was pleased with the deal considering our credit isn't great but not bad either.

Since your message did not concern pricing, I moved it to our regular Nissan Sentra discussion.

We were just offered a 2000 Sentra GXE, Automatic with 30K original miles. The previous owner had the windows tinted and installed a K-9 Passive Alarm. The vehicle was never in an accident, no rust, two minor door dings. The dealership had various recalls done, for example, various engine sensors and all four steel rims are new. Current owner had the front rotors replaced this year along with new breaks. We plan to purchase the vehicle mainly for commuting a 180 mile daily commute. Can someone offer their opinion on this vehicle? The vehicle is being sold for 6k.
Thanks for the input.
#20 of 452 2005 Sentra 1.8s Auto w/ ABS & Side Airbags

I asked around for quote on the Internet and negotiated through emails. The final out the door price including $2,500 cash reabet and $500 recent graduate rebate was $13,000. As you know, it has power door&window and cruise control as well as ABS & Side Airbags. Compared to Civic LX which costs up to $15,800, I think it's pretty good deal.
Last night, I got an email from another dealer that they will beat any price in writing by $200. They actually did and I got 2005 Sentra 1.8s Auto with ABS and Side Airbags for out the door price $12,800.
It's Virginia and sale tax is 3%.

how u do know how u were able to get such an amazing deal?
i had the manager let me look at the invoice which includes the holdback amount, the amount was roughly 426, i was able to negotiate it so the dealer kept 200 of it
the price u have is well well below invoice even with the holdback, just curious

They had it as a advertisment for that price. THey also has two 1.8s with Automatic for 9980. I like the look of the special edition better even through it was a bit more. THe only thing is we were not able to get the special APR for that price. I had to get a loan from my Credit Union to get a better rate.
