"How did you get it down so low?"
I bought this car from a dealer more than 100 miles away so I dealt only with their internet sales dept by email.
They gave me a firm itemized quote and even the VIN number of the car so I could look it up in their inventory through the internet. By the time I got up there the car was all prepped with a full tank of gas. All that was left was a short test drive and paper work.
I think the real question is not how did I get the price down but how did the dealer get the price down.
Here's the numbers taken off of my purchase agreement - the only legal binding agreement between the dealer and the buyer in my state:
MSRP ("STICKER PRICE") 16885
BASE PRICE OF VEHICLE INCLUDING FREIGHT 14748
TOTAL PURCHASE PRICE 14748
TOTAL TAXABLE SALE PRICE 13248
SALES TAX 861.12
DOCUMENT FEE 75.00
TOTAL LICENSE FEES 63,88
TOTAL AMOUNT DUE ON DELIVERY $14248
If you can make sense of the these numbers you are a better man than me.
This OTD price was $1440 less than the best I could negotiate with my local Nissan dealer so it does pay to look around.
A few thoughts:
This was the largest Nissan dealer in my state. They had about 18 Versas on the lot and for them it was a clean cash-no trade deal and maybe they had a cash flow problem.
Also better buy quick they are closing down the plants in Japan and that can't mean anything other than higher prices.

Bought it last Sunday in Sunnyvale CA, it has what they call the plus package, a nice car with all power windows, keyless entry, MP3 player and all.
Paid 13700 OTD. down payment 3700 and got remaining financed 3.75%
in CA the ttl is about 1300-1400 dollar for this price so dealer actually got close to 12400 dollars, I am sure it is a very good deal but still please do let me know if someone else was able to get a similar deal in bay area?

Thanks so much! This forum really helped me to get an amazing deal for a 2011 hatchback with power package!
I dealt with a few Nissan dealers in the PA/NJ area, and tried to get the best deal. I ended up with:
$13,299 OOD (including 8%). No money down and 0.9%
Free lifetime Pa State Inspection
Free 1 Year of Maintance

Man you can not get a 2011 1.8s Versa hatchback for the price you have quoted, probably you got what the dealers use as a loaner car or a repo one, get it checked before you drive it too much...or this 13,299 is before the TTL?

13,299 after TTL. Seems like I only paid about $400 less than you. What's not believable about that?

because I know how low a dealer can go on a 2011 1.8s versa hatchback, anyways if you really got it at that price its good for you and bad for the dealer as he took a loss.

Incentives can vary from one geographical area to another.

Last October I bought a new 2011 Versa Hatch, manual shift with power package,sill plates, and mud flaps for 13K OTD. I was very pleased with that price.
