Nissan Sentra, Sedan
#94 of 452 Got a good deal I think...
Aug 04, 2007 (7:45 pm)
Purchased my 2007 Sentra just a few days ago:
2.0 CVT ABS + floor mats/splash guards
Super black w/charcoal interior.
I walked out the door with $14,200 balance due.
(including doc fees, $400, yes I think they were bogus too.) So the car price they gave me was $15,300 - $1500 in rebates (new grad rebate included) + doc fees for $400 = $14,200
Plus they gave me choice of color and went and found the car and brought it to the lot for no extra charge.
I also went with the 36 month .7% interest rate. The kicker for that was the finance guy made a mistake and currently I pay only .07% (equals $15.32 over life of the loan!) I think Nissan will catch that eventually and I'll be back to .7%.
Still, I think if you want a 2007 Sentra, now is probably a good time to get one and try and go at least $500 below invoice. Worked for me. Good luck.
#95 of 452 Any below invoice pricing in western/central New York State?
Aug 04, 2007 (10:34 pm)
Anyone getting $500. or more below factory invoice for an 07 Sentra CVT w convenience package in my neck of the woods? If not here, anyone buy from Northern PA, NJ or New England?
Might be a cash deal, no trade.
Any help much appreciated!
#96 of 452 Sentra 2.0 S in Central Texas
Aug 06, 2007 (10:15 am)
I purchased a 2007 Sentra 2.0 S with Conv. Package, ABS, splash guards, side moldings, floor mats and tinted windows (could be standard) for $15,500.00 from Round Rock Nissan in Round Rock Texas on Saturday. The sticker for this car was $18,390.00 and the invoice is $17,100.00. I shopped for weeks looking at Toyota, Honda and Nissan not really caring what car I got as long as the price was right. I did a request from edomonds.com and got four replies from area dealers and one had the S for $15,200 and I used that to go to the dealer by my house who was $267 higher to begin with. He said he would meet the price from the competitor. While test driving the car I noticed a scratch in the dash. He said he’d take another $100 off for that. Beginning the real negotiations he asked if the quote was for the convenience package and I said I don’t believe so. He said the cost was $900 for that. I said I’ll sign right now if you take $15,500 for the car. He went into his manager and came out with the final numbers. The numbers were $16,500.00 for the car plus a $500 rebate, along with another $500 for financing through Nissan Motor Credit. To me that was exactly where I wanted the price. Tax was nine hundred and something and title, etc was a couple hundred more. I put down $2,500.00 and my final amount to finance at 4.9% was $14,183.52. He pointed to a figure that said “EST. payment $275”. All was good so I agreed. It was getting late and I suggested we complete the deal tomorrow.
Here’s where the fun begins. I arrived back the next day and upon finishing up with the sales person, I was met up with the Finance Director. He sat and talked with me for a bit which led right into the warranty speech. By that time the monthly payment had become $279. I sigh’d over the four bucks but proceeded on. He got done with the warranty speech and tried to sell me the complete package for $341 /mo. I said no way and he said well how much are you comfortable with? I said like $290. He said ok the the maintenance contract and window tire something for $297. I said no, he said ok I’ll take off another $5. I did some math and saw that was a $13 difference / mo which was like $800 on the life of the contract. I said ok. As he was printing out the papers and I was signing I noticed the financed amount on my paper was now $15,500.00. I asked why that was and he started double talking away how the 890 this and 390 that was what we agreed to. I said I don’t want any of it now. He said you agreed to it. I said I DON’T WANT IT TAKE IT OFF. He said wait, we agreed to $290/ mo. I said I agreed to pay $15,500 for the car and finance $14,100. I said for this deal you must have been incorrect about the original monthly payment. He said no that was right on and did some calculator thing and said see. I said, Give me my check back and I’ll get the car somewhere else. He calmed down, tore up the signed papers and tried to put the $279 back into the system. I balked back at him and I said well maybe the monthly payment is lower. No he insisted and sat there frustrated for another five minutes. I watched what he was doing until he finally put in $267/mo and everything passed through. He said expect a call from Nissan Motor Credit because that figure was wrong. I just laughed. He then quickly printed out the papers and had me sign what was left. I was out of there with the price I wanted to pay. Lesson learned. Know your monthly payment before you let them tell you an inflated one so the additional stuff they’re selling you doesn’t sound so expensive.

Texas is a long way away from western NY state, but appreciated this knock out, drag out fight you had with the dealership. The dealers won't like it, but I believe in keeping this potential transaction uncomplicated. A cash deal
for $15,500 plus tax, tags, title, inspection fee. No extended warranty, no Nissan financing, nothing! Of course, that is one heck of a deal you got...convenience package, ABS,
body side moldings, splash guards, floor mats. Tinted glass comes standard these days. Advertising fees and the financial reserve I'm sure are the variables that can make one dealer have the advantage over another. By the way, again Nissan USA is again depriving the US market the lack of heated outside mirrors for the 2008 models. Nissan Canada is making that feature available again for 2008.
Thanks for sharing your story!
#98 of 452 A good deal all around
Aug 08, 2007 (1:25 pm)
I bought a 2007 Sentra 2.0SL, Polished Granite exterior with Saddle Leather at ABC Nissan in Phoenix. The add-ons were moonroof pkg., body side moulding, mud guards, tint, floormats, lojack, clearcoat reseal every 6 mos. Price I negotiated down to was $18,038. The $1000 rebate (includes $500 cash back and $500 back if financed with NMAC). Bottom line: $17,038. Now add all the taxes and fees and less my trade of $4,500 for my trade, I financed about $15,300 with a payment is $431.00 for 36 months at 0.7%. The total cost of interest is around $184.00. So in three years, I will own the car entirely and have not paid much in interest. I'm pretty pleased with my deal. I did a lot of homework before going and didn't allow them to upcharge me or play with the numbers. And, I love my car. I absolutely love it. People are amazed that it's a Sentra. They can't believe it. They say it looks like a mini Maxima.
So far, so good.

#100 of 452 Hit the JACKPOT in Vegas on Sentra 2.0 S
Aug 18, 2007 (5:04 pm)
2007 Sentra 2.0 S CV Transmission
Magnetic Grey/ Charcoal Steel
Convenience Pkg, Splash Guards, Body Color Molding, Floor Mats w/ Trunk Divider, Tinted Windows.
Negotiated Price $15,000
Includes Rebates ($1,000)
Sales Tax 7.75% $1,270.96
Dealer Fee $399
State Title $28.25
Final Total Price: $16,698.21
Las Vegas, NV
Original negotiated price after $500 cash back rebate was $15,500. I was going to pay in full, but was offered another $500 rebate to finance a minimum of $5000 through NMAC. New purchase price before tax, title, and dealer fee was $15,000. I financed the $5,000 for a term of 36 months at 1.90% and paid the balance.
Details: Best treatment ever, from first internet contact to driving away from dealership. My wife loves this car and she drove all other vehicles in its class. Words cannot express how awesome the bluetooth enabled phone and the keyless entry/ignition features are. I believe the dealer was motivated as we are in the last half of Aug. and the 2008 model is due out in 30 days.

I hate salesmen for precisely these kind of games they play. I admire your patience.
