About a month late but first chance I've got to post this . I got a (Superblack) Nissan Sentra SR for $14,700.00 OTD with splash guards, convenience package and floor mats. It had 54 miles on it when I got it. If anyone one wants the breakdown of what the exact fees were, I can post the exact amounts but this is how it went roughly;
about $15,100 base price (from the $19,300 MSRP sticker)
about $500 tax (3.17% VA tax)
about $500 processing fee/delivery fee
about $100 for everything else (titling/registration)
-$1500 customer rebate
$14700 OTD price
Let me know if you want exact numbers but I paid for the car outright (no financing/leasing) and no trade-ins. I got the title the middle of April.
I tried getting the same deal for my uncle this month but between the dealer I bought it at and another dealer in our area, neither one could come close and the other dealer even said "You basically stole the vehicle". !
Again let me know if anyone wants the exact breakdown, I did the ones above based on memory (except the final price of course and the rebate). I also felt that the area that I'm from (Virginia suburbs of DC) are notorious for ripping people off.
I was comparing the Sentra to the Civic LX and the Corolla LE and thought the Sentra was by far the best for the deal I was getting!

You did get a steal. I posted right before you with the same exact vehicle in white. I thought i got a good price but you got a much better one. I live in New Jersey so the sales tax is higher (7%) but i got $2000 in customer rebates which offsets the tax difference. I also got $600 on my trade in which should have made it lower but i still paid $15,908 OTD about $1200 more. My car had 20 miles on it i guess from test driving. Was yours a demo car by any chance? I also bought it outright no financing or lease. Could you send me the exact numbers or invoice so i can compare mine to see if they messed up with the numbers. I also looked at the Honda civic and Toyota corolla LE and even for what i paid they still wanted more in my area for them with less features. Thanks for any feedback and good luck with your new car.

If it was a demo, they didn't tell me, he had the car ready to be test driven when I came in but it didn't have mats and wasn't washed but it only had 54 miles on it. This is how it was listed:
Price (including freight, handling and delivery): 15,144.36
Processing fee for consumer services: 499.00
Title Tax: 469.30
Dealer's business license tax: 26.59
Online systems filing fee: 10.00
Registration Fee: 40.75
Title Fee: 10.00
Total delivered price: 16,200.00
I'm not sure why the title tax is coming out to 3.09% and not 3.17% but I was told it was 3.17 in VA, it might be because they didn't break down what the freight/handling/delivery charges were separate from the price. 469.30 is 3.17% of 14,804.42 which may then be the price excluding the freight, handling and delivery. Thanks and I hope you enjoy your new car as well.

Nissan had much better deals at the end of 2010 because they had customer cash rebates which i am not sure if they do now you should check into that. I bought a 2011 Nissan Sentra SR with convenience package(handsfree bluetooth,leatherwrapped steering wheel, cargo net) plus splash guards and floor mats for $15,135 plus TTT. It came to about $16,600 including everything. I think you can get a better deal if you can afford to wait. The Nissan Sentra is o.k. not crazy about the CVT transmission takes a while to get used to. Have you looked into other vehicles? The Ford Fiesta is a nice little vehicle available in sedan and hatchback that i am regretting not looking at but i would definitely not get the Nissan Sentra at that price. There are other cars in that price range that are better quality. The reason ibought mine was the rebates which made the price alot lower than the competition. Hope this helps

Your best deal will be the Nissan Sentra, hands down. However, the best deals with Nissan have come and gone. If you had purchased your Sentra SR in February or March, you could have picked one up for 14,800, including the convenience package. There were very heavy rebates going on then. Those
generous rebates were halved when the calendar turned from March 31 to April
Fools Day. Buying any automobile in May or June is the height of the greed season for auto dealers. Demand is high and transaction prices are much closer
to retail prices during this period. If you can wait till July, or especially August,
you will see rebates get better with 2011 models being sold for discount. That is,
if you can wait that long. If you buy now, you could be 'raked over the coals.'
