Nissan Sentra, Sedan
#402 of 442 New 2011 Sentra 2.0 SR
Jun 22, 2011 (6:41 pm)
Just came home with a new 2011 Sentra 2.0 SR with Special Edition package, Auto-dimming mirror, floor mats and splash guards in Northeast Ohio. Breakdown was as follows:
Sale Price: $18,550 (before $500 rebate)
Rebate: $500 (with 2.9% through NMAC)
Doc Fee: $250
Sales Tax: $1175
Total OTD: $19,508.50
Nissan of North Olmsted hooked it up with the best price I received among 4 other dealers in the area.

Note: this is for Arizona with its 9%+ sales tax rate depending what City. Purchased a new Sentra S with tint, mudflaps, convenience package, upgraded stereo (but not Nav) for $18,799.99 out the door. This included $500 rebate, 0% for 36 months from NIMAC and $500 new graduate rebate. I see that others have much lower tax rates and we apparently missed those $2500 rebates that were available last December. Doc fee was $299, DMV/Title $246. Got this deal from Earnhardt Nissan through internet pricing. 90 days before first payment.

I'm currently looking for the same car 2011 or 2012 Nissan Sentra SR for around the same price since she just recently graduated

I'm getting a 2012 Nissan Sentra SL for $19,000 OTD. Get it or should I wait until July? Thanks for all the help/info!

I totally forgot to mention the specs: heated leather seats, alloy wheels, sunroof, keyless entry... the only thing it doesn't have is a GPS/voice sync system that I could really use since I like to talk but I dont want to be holding my cellphone and talking while driving. The sync would've great to help me keep both my hands on the steering wheel.

That seems like a good price. What's the price before taxes and fees?
By July, the all-new 2013 Sentra might be out. Is that what you mean by waiting for July, or would you be looking for a close-out deal on a 2012?

Yeah that's what I meant... so that I could get a good deal on 2012 model but the dealer said that by that time almost all of them will be sold out since they sell pretty fast (which of course he would since he's trying to make a sale). The price before the TTT and fees was $17,800.
#409 of 442 what's a good price??

hi folks,looking into purchasing a 2012 nissan sentra SR special edition package.msrp is $20,560.00 and includes interior accent lighting and floor mats as additional options.dealer is hinting around 17,600.00 which would include the $1000.00 rebate that's in effect through nissan.iam trying to get them down to around 17 k+TTT.with all the competition out there that the sentra competes with such as the cruze,elantra,ect...the sentra's aren't selling very well so you would think that the dealers would be willing to deal.

What would a comparably-equipped Cruze or Elantra cost these days?
The Sentra could still be a good deal even at $3000 off MSRP. But you might find a dealer willing to go near $17k. It takes some work, and maybe some luck.
When I set out to lease a Sentra 2.0S two years ago, I scouted around re deals in my area, found the best deal I could, contacted the Internet sales manager to make sure the deal was legit and they had cars in stock, then went to the closest dealer (which I know has very good service, I've leased two other Nissans from them) and told them what I'd found and asked if they could beat it. I was looking for a low payment with sign&drive. The sales rep hemmed and hawed, then I got a call from another dealer I had talked with earlier and we had a little chat re their best price--in front of the sales rep. I told the guy on the phone the best offer I'd had to date was $189/month sign&drive for 39 months (which was true). After we talked and he gave me a better offer, I told him I'd get back to him shortly, hung up, and told the sales rep in front of me that I could get $184/month sign and drive at the other dealer, for 39 months (again true), and I was going to head over there if he couldn't beat it. So he did--$179/mo, but I had to make the first payment. I hesitated on that, since I wanted 0 out of pocket, then he offered to toss in a Garmin nav system and a portable DVD player... both of which I could use. I said, "Deal!" and we shook on it.
Dealers hate to lose a sale... especially someone who is serious and will definitely buy/lease that day, but maybe not from them.
