I am located in Central Jersey and I inquired pricing with Sansone auto, North plainfield nissan, edison nissan. So far edison nissan is the most honest dealership with me indicating they don't have received any SL's so would not be able to give me the pricing. This was back in July 2nd week. I went in to have my old car appraised. Once they recieve the car I will be actually getting onto negotiation step. Btw I am planning to buy the car since I would be using it for atleast 7-8 years and my driving mileage are high.
Sansone and north plainfield nissan were not at all cooperative and they want me to come down and only than they would talk the pricing. Sansone person was so confident that they wanted me to come in sign the paperwork, give deposit and they can get me the new 2013 SL, Tech package, black-on-black in "2" days. This was also in July 2nd week. After that I have decided to wait unless dealerships have the cars actually listed on their website and only than I would start the process.

that SV 22694 is a great deal it is at .90 of msrp.
Ive gone to 4 dealers in south florida and they are not moving off 95% of msrp for any and all altimna models.
the dealers Ive gone too, one is an autonation dealer with many outlets, another is an automall with various brands (honda/gm etc) the other two were only nissan dealers. that my choice down here.

pegasus heres the comparison on my south florida lease proposal vs fitzmall. on the surface fitzmall is better.
fitmall deal was msrp 23580 vs 23410 (difference was fitz had side moldings), sell price w/ acquisition cost was fitz 21916 vs 22926. RV fitz 14384 vs 14280.
figuring the lease at .002 money factor bc this is nissans tier one now.
fitz payment 266 vs 296.
but with fitz i need 1454 for tax, fees , regi, tax in advance and tinting windows, VIN etching PLUS first months lease payment vs just 186 plus first payment (the fees, etc, vin etch, tint etc was eaten by the dealer in so. florida not fitz who had the lower starting price.
final tally.....south florida lease payment 296. fitz payment if all was folded into lease 297. (all lease figures are without local sales tax monthly)
in conclusion you truly get what you pay for and no matter what dealer even if 1200 miles apart the numbers are the same...the freakin same.
I am going with florida. less money out of my pocket. i can go for an additional $30 per month vs having to come up with another $1,268 at inception now with fitz.
and as an add'l bonus, having vin # etching saves me $17 per month on my insurance vs no etching.
thanks for participating in this journey.

on the surface for a base 2.5 it doesnt seem bad. this is the national deal from nissan, to do better more info is needed..such as whats the msrp, whats the selling price or cap cost.( i know there are no programs so their are no cap cost reductions) and for your info the bank fee or acquisition fee of $595 is pretty customary and applied to all leases, it really is a bank fee !!.
residual is probably at 61% or so, this is by the book, dealer has no say. but they do have a say in the seller price or cap cost after any reductions or additions (such as bank fee).
if your tier one your money factor (which is how they figure your rental fee is .0020, thats what NMAC (lease co of nissan) is offering now, it equates to a 4.8% interest if you wanted to convert it (.0020 x (multiplied by ) 2400=4.8%.
also the percentage of selling price to msrp to arrive at a good deal is needed. for instance a 90-91% selling price to msrp is really good. a 95% selling price to msrp is ok, but in a lease just those few percentage points will cost you, $20 to $30,.
write here the numbers, Ill figure it....

NOw august of 2012 as in 2009 when my leases are due, i get a letter from nissan leasing of their pullback program.
it is to forgive, forget or whatever you want to call it for my last THREE lease payments. these payments are not put into my new lease, they are pulled back as is the phrase in the auto industry , if an only if i purchase/lease another nissan.
I just took advantage of it , again.
basically it made my 39 month lease 36 months on my 2009 which i turned in. and now i start again for the next 39 months ,,,I went with a 2013.
pegasus, i got the letter from nmac, and its for 3 months, not 9. not in my case anyway.

Three payments is the norm for those companies that have a pullback program. The OP said they were going to forgive 9 payments which i highly doubted. Congrats on the 2013 Altima. I saw one a couple hours ago in a local supermarket parking lot in dark red and it was gorgeous. OTOH, I saw a few pics of the 2013 Accord at a Kroger lot and it was a big yawn (very similar to the 2012, which isn't a bad thing). i have a few months to decide...Camry, Fusion, Accord, Altima...we'll see. Enjoy!

...."Shoot for $11 per 1000 of msrp pre-tax... "
If a vehicle has an MSRP of $40,000, then that is 40 X $11 = $440/mo..

That is poor advice pegasus. Maybe shoot for 11 x the Capitalizded Cost. You can do much better than 11 x MSRP especially on a Nissan.
