Nissan Sentra, Sedan
#266 of 452 Sentra 2.0S + Convenience Package + extras
Sep 01, 2008 (8:22 am)
I'm surprised the Sentra 2.0 does not have ABS. I think that should be standard feature in all new cars so I'm looking for a 2.0 S now.
Is this a good deal? TIA
2008 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S
Standard features + $1k worth of add-ons
- Convenience package: Intelligent Key, Bluetooth, floor mats, etc.
- Phantom Footprint (?)
Asking sticker price: $20,750
Adjusted price: $16,856
Tax + Fees: $1,644
Total: $17,000 OTD
So after rebate and everything, it comes out to be about $15,500 before taxes/fees.

I went to a dealer today and they could only do $17000(invoice) + $1500 rebate = $15,500. That was my second time there. Should I go back a third time or will that really put me in a disadvantage?
I don't want the extras ($352 invoice). Would it be ok to insist that they remove them? Can/Will/Do dealers take this extra stuff off? How easy is it to have them do it?
I'm thinking I should start with 14500 and except 15000. Does that sound unreasonable? Shouldn't they be trying hard to get rid of the 2008?
Thanks for any comments.

Thx marco. I went ahead and bought it since we needed a car asap. I appreciate your opinion.

I got mine $17000 OTD (with tax, fees, rebate, everything). I'm sure you can do better if you try. Mine came with a factory installed packages (convenience package, matts, etc). If it's dealer installed they can easily take it off and you can push down the price. If it gets to them with the extra packages, I don't think they can do anything about that.
Hope that helps.

Sorry, I haven't followed up. Rosen Gurnee ended up being a con job All of a sudden, they couldn't locate the car I put a deposit on....
So long story short, I ended up getting a car in the south suburbs. That dealer was a PITA as well, but my Mom has a car and is happy.
Car dealerships have not evolved in the past 50 years. Many of them still play the same stupid games.
Ok, I'm done. Thanks for the advice on the board.

Thanks thaineseguy. How does that 17000 break out? $150 doc fees, $1500 rebate, $90 for TTL, and $1000 for taxes?

That is ridiculous. Sorry to hear that. I got a great deal from them. But I can't imagine putting a deposit on a car, only to arrive and find out they were messing with you. I would be equally as angry, no doubt.

Why are dealers selling these cars way below invoice?
Is it because they are 2008s? My dealers said the 09s aren't coming in for 2 more months.
Is it because demand is down for these?
Are they getting extra kickbacks(besides the 2%) or factory-to-dealer incentives?

i'm not sure, it can't really be because of that because I got mine in May for way below invoice even before my factor to consumer rebate. good question though. wish i knew.
