How did you get the $16,255 price? Was that purely through negotiation? Because just the '08 2.0 CVT car costs $15,926, and with the options you listed: convenience plus (+738),
alloy wheels (+304),
splash guards (+105), and
floor mats (+129),
that comes out to $17,202 at invoice. And if you add the $660 delivery, the invoice price is $17,862.
Did you negotiate $1,607 off of the invoice price, before even applying the rebates? Was there a trade involved in the deal? Otherwise, that sounds like a monster deal, considering you negotiated $1,607 off of the INVOICE price, and then got another $2,000 in rebates for a new car with only 19 miles.

It must have been a decent price because all the other dealers in my area didn't even want to negotiate anymore when I told them the price Bill Ray Nissan (Longwood, FL - close to Orlando) would cut the deal for. And we all know how dealers hound you if they think they can make a buck off you! LOL. I had one yo-yo (Daytona Nissan) tell me he would beat the price but wouldn't say by how much - just come on in. I hate it when these dealers sign up to give you their lowest OTD quotes on these websites and then they call and wont give you the quote. Thats just frustrating. I flat out told the dude why he lost the sale. He essentially told me he makes enough on the suckers to more than make up the loss of my business. Nice!

It seems that there was a price increase that took place across many cars in the Nissan lineup (Sentra being one of them) in April of this year. Does anyone have those historical prices they can post for the Sentra trim lines and options, or otherwise post a link to where to find them? Thanks!
#184 of 452 08 Sentra 2.0S with CVT & Convenience Pkg
Jun 10, 2008 (8:53 pm)
I have an offer to purchase a 2008 Sentra 2.0 S CVT with Convenience package, splash guards, & side moldings for 16,150 (17,150 minus1,000 cash back) and 2.9 financing.
The price of 16,150.00 does NOT include TTL and there is no trade in.
Edmunds lists MSRP as 18,870 and 'invoice' as 18,110;
Is $16,150.00 a good price for the 08 Sentra S CVT w/ convenience pkg?
#185 of 452 considering purchasing a Nissan Sentra 2003 SE
Jun 11, 2008 (3:40 am)
My 18 year old daughter totaled out 2000 toyota corolla last week. A friend of a friend has a 2003 Sentra SE with 12,000 miles on it that he wants to sell for $7,000. It belongs to his mom who is now in a nursing home. The condition is good - there are some dings and a scratch on the bumper. My big concern is that it does not have side impact air bags, ABS, and VSC like our corolla had. My other concern is that this car has barely been used, and I know my daughter will be putting alot of mileage on it going back and forth to college. Any advice on whether you think this is a reasonable alternative to a new car (which I'm sure she will use as a second closet and trash) would be appreciated. Thanks Marlene

Should have the 2 airbags in front, as I had a 2003 Sentra until '06. For that price, can't go wrong actually. How much of a settlement check did y'all get from the insurance company? Hopefully almost that much and beats the price of a new car now, as the econoboxes are in quite high demand now with the price of petrol. If I was her, I'd snag this car and use it for a few years until the world situation settles down a bit. Didn't the SE version have the larger tire/wheel combination also? If it does have the 16" shoes, it'll definitely handle better than the 15 inchers. Looks to be a good deal whatever.

Does this vary by state or county? For example, the $1,500 current factory incentive, is that taken off before hitting it with sales tax, or after sales tax? Thanks.

It varies, but in most states the amount is taxed before the rebate is deducted..

Here in Illinois the salesman told me that tax is calculated BEFORE the rebate has been applied.
