Ugh! Wish I could buy a billboard outside their showroom to simply encourage buyers to 'run.' I had a very bad experience here back in 2002 when the Altima had first been restyled. Long story short, I walked out of that dealership, drove across the VNB and purchased my new Nissan from SI Nissan. Just leased a Maxima yesterday at SI and talked about that experience 9 years ago. Suggest you do not take your auto to Bay Ridge for service for anything other than routine maintenance. Crooks in that category, as well. Your lease deal does not seem optimal, but don't know all the facts. But if instincts tell you something's not right, based on your dealer, I'd be inclined to agree that you're smelling a rat.

Just curious, do you work fo SI Nissan? Bay Ridge guys are crooks but SI Nissan are as bad as their Broooklyn counterparts.

The 52% residual value that you were subsequently quoted is indeed correct. It sounds like an expensive mistake on the dealership's part if they're lowering your car's price enough to make up the difference.

Of course, I do not work there. But I just leased my 4th Nissan from them and haven't a complaint to make - including my impression of their fair dealing. I can conclude that the buying process for big ticket items like a new car is sure to leave anyone skeptical. I get it.
#1199 of 1376 2011 Maxima SV price

I am looking into a 2011 Maxima SV with msrp of $36,645. I want to make an offer, was thinking of $33,000. Is this good or should I go lower?

Truecar would indicate a couple thousand lower will fly in most areas, check it out.

I have seen 2011 Maximas advertised at 6-7 thousand below MSRP.

Thanks. I tried $32k, but got them to agree to the $33k with $2k in rebates, $3k down, 53% residual and .00004. Final payment was $270 for 39 months (12k miles). Not too bad in my opinion. Great site. Thanks for the advice and help here!

Offer way lower, I leased a 2011 SV with monitor and cold package end of July that stickered at $36,500. Got price down to $28,500. $284 a mo with $500 due at signing for first mo payment and plates. If they offer less than 7k off, your not getting a good deal (Ive heard people getting 10k off)...
#1204 of 1376 2011 Maxima SV with tech and premium package
Oct 01, 2011 (8:10 pm)
I am a proud altima 3.5 user and loved the car by putting 110k miles and it still runs like new, it just I am little board with it so now I am ready for maxima.
after getting all the inspirations from you guys,I went to my local dealer where I purchased my altima and after a long discussion he offered me $32500 for 3.5 SV with tech and premium package( fully loded).
I do lots of miles ( 110 a day average) but here is my calculation that I lease maxima fully loaded and trade my altima for $10,000+ and keep that money saved, and when my lease is over I use that 10k to buy that maxima by paying full money in 1 go.
My question is to all you genius :
1. Am I getting the good deals in $32500 ( I think Yes )
2. is it right calculation to keep my trade in money saved and later use it to buy the maxima when lease gets over.
at that end I once againI thank you all, for sharing your great experience and guidance.
ps: I am not good at writing so pardon my mistakes.
