OK, let us know.
Another "trick" I've found helps get max FE on my Sentra (maybe in general): keep an eye on the instantaneous mpg meter as you cruise on the highway (cruise NOT on). I've found that even slight variations in gas pedal pressure make a significant difference in mpg, and I can see the effects of that on the instantaneous meter. In general, the lighter the pedal pressure, the higher the mpg, but it surprised me that what I thought was light pressure was not light enough for max FE. Using that approach, I've achieved my highest mpg results with the Sentra.
Maybe more effort than it's worth, and it's possible to overachieve the EPA highway ratings just by setting the cruise control (at reasonable speed, e.g. 70 or less), but thought I'd pass it on. At the least, you might switch to the instantaneous mpg readout on your Baltimore trip and see what kind of mpg you are getting along the way.

Need to buy a car for my daughter this week. Looking at Sentra S Auto with conv package, splashguards, & mats only. I live in MARYLAND. What pricing have you seen before adding TTL? I think there are other "hidden" incentives to move these cars that the dealers have because of the 2013's coming in. Thanks.

I'm in the process of getting quotes on this car in the NY tri-state area. Just started this afternoon, but so far (just 5 quotes with many more to go), I'm at slightly under invoice before the $500 Nissan financing incentive.
I do not mind looking much further away. The last car I bought came from MD to NY. I only had to pay $250 and saved thousands compared to local dealers.
Anyone know of aggressive dealers for these cars?

Sounds like you got a pretty good deal, to get leather for $18K is pretty impressive.
If you are willing to dig, there are some great deals out there. Anderson Nissan sold a 13 SL for $16,720 (price was reported at voiceofthedriver.com)

A 13 SL for under $17k...that's excellent! This car is a real nice looking vehicle and the interior is very classy. I just wonder how it drives because if it compares favorably to the Elantra, Nissan has a winner on it's hands. I've driven several new Elantra's and Foci the last few weeks and both drive very smoothly thought I still think the Focus is a tick behind in most categories...a great ride but still out classed by the Hyundai. If the Nissan can best these two, then Nissan will sell a ton of 'em. The resemblance to the Altima can only help sales ans I personally love the clean lines of the cars. A lot of excitement in the compact segment as of late with the new Forte here and the re-introduced '13 Civic a major improvement over the lackluster '12 offering. There's a lot of buzz about the new Corolla, still a popular model though I just can't figure it out. Drove a couple last week and the only thing I liked was the supportive drivers seat...everything else screams old tech...even the Entunes unit seemed like an after thought. Seriously, the new Corolla has to be a home run for Toyota as the Camry as good as it is, is still a snoozewmobile with as much excitement as a new refrigerator!
