Jan 19, 2008 (6:46 am)
I'm from Houston and I just bought my 2008 Versa S with 4 speed automatic last night with power package, floor mats, aluminum kick plates, splash guards and cruise control, metallic grey color for $13500.00 OTD which I think is an excellent deal.
Here's the breakdown:
MSRP : 13760.00
Rebate : Regular rebate
Rebate : College Grad rebate
Sales tax : 781.88
Misc. fees: 208.12 TT&L and misc fees
What do you guys think?
This is from Sterling McCall Nissan in Stafford.

That's pretty much what they're going for here in Oklahoma City. I'm thinking it's kind of nutty to pay more than that regardless of the options. In fact Hudiburg Nissan is advertising a specific stock number for either $12.9K or $12.7K.

13,600 for 08 versa S trim HB w/
ABS, power package, cruise control, splash guard, full mat, kick plate.
It's this one acceptable? Or try to get a couple hundred off?

you have to tell us whether 13600 is before or after tax, license, etc.

It is OTD price.
Then, is this one OK? Should I continue haggling? Seems dealers are not enthusiastic about it.

OTD is nondescriptive. Taxes on that car can vary from 200 to 1400 depending on state. Also what are the dealer fees and msrp?
The fact that dealers aren't enthusiastic about haggling is nonremarkable.
About $2000 off a 16500 versa is a pretty good deal.

shouldn't OTD price include everything including tax, misc fee?

Yes, OTD... "Out The Door" means just that... Out The Door... everything included, tax, destination fees... everything.
I spec'd out my Versa and told the dealer my OTD price. They then adjusted the numbers so that car + extras I wanted (ABS, rear spoiler, mats, etc.) + tax + destination + whatever else, came out to be my OTD price exactly.

That's what it means, but if you post OTD prices in this forum without including a break down of how much of the OTD price is your local sales tax and registration/license fees, it isn't helpful to those reading your post.
If you say "I paid $16300 OTD and that includes the local sales tax of $876 and state registration fee of $133," that would let others know how much of your posted OTD price is going towards taxes and government (not dealer) fees.
Everyone else could then subtract your local fees and calculate what OTD would be in their own area.
There seems to be two types of posts. One post where the person isolates the sales price of the car without mentioning they also paid the dealer $650 for "doc fee" or didn't include the destination charge. The second type of post is where people only post "OTD" price that has their local sales tax jumbled in.
Both are not clear or non-applicable to people not in the same county/state.
Even after all that, when a trade-in was involved and not disclosed in the post, that makes the whole deal a bad comparison to anyone else's post because of how much the trade-in may have influenced the whole thing.
