Regarding paying Cash or not, the dealership will give you the same deal, infact the dealership will loose money if you pay cash for the car.
Right now, Nissan isn't really dealing on the car and Nissan isn't given any special interest rates on the Coupe. I bought a 2.5S with Premium pack and Sunroof, and got it for $26K the car was used, only had 400 Miles, I was given a really loosey story on why it came back, I think the owner couldnt get fiancing... But I live it, I have the CVT. So far I'm averaging 27 MPG, we had a Sedan with the 3.5 and averaged 22.

HOORAY HOORAY. I woke up at 9 am knowing i was going to drive off the lot today with my car of choice no questions asked. I went to my local Nissas dealer first thing and tried the lets make a deal game with the dealer.. He first told me that the 2.5S Fully Loaded with Premium and Technology packages were going to run me 30 Grand msrp . After a quick call to the Dealer over the bridge he quickly dropped the price . After some moreShannigan's from this guy who wouldn't even print out his rediculous quote of 24,500 I did not feel comfortable and left for the other dealership who was more than happy to take my cash payment for the car. Thank You Rafael Rt. 22 Nissan in Hillside NJ.
When all was said and done I ended up paying 28,500 with 20,000 out of pocket so I can boost my credit in 6 months when I pay in full . Thank you all for the advice. and I can already see the enjoyment I will have with the car.. Greattt!!!
#327 of 373 Nissan Altima Coupe: Window Tinting
Feb 09, 2008 (3:50 pm)
Hi, all. I will soon be purchasing a 2008 Altima Coupe. Since I live in the south and have no garage, I was considering purchasing window tinting to help reduce the temperature and protect the interior. I understand the standard glass is "solar glass" and has some UV protection, but how much? Is window tinting worth it? Anyone had any experience?

Get the extra tint. It's worth it.
#329 of 373 Altima Coupe Break In Period
Apr 04, 2008 (6:44 pm)
My Altima Coupe, like every other new car I've ever purchased says not to drive at constant speeds for extended periods of time during the break in period. What none of the manuals say is how long is considered too long to drive constantly.
Anyone have any expertise on this? If I drive on the highway, how long can I stay at one speed? 5 minutes? 10 minutes? 30 minutes? And, when I do vary my speed, how much do I need to vary it? By 5 mph? 10 mph? More?
Why don't the manuals make this more specific? It's kind of vague.
As always, any insight is appreciated.

With almost 10K miles on my coupe, I drive more HWY then I do city and I average about 70. So far no problem, I'm sure if you go to 3 different dealers, you will be told 3 different things... But I'm sure driving around the city freeways you are OK, but if you drove from LA to SF on the freeway at a constant speed that would be a problem.

Just curious has anyone had this baby out in the snow I was thinking about getting one but I live in Ohio and was curious as to how it performed non-ideal weather.

"says not to drive at constant speeds for extended periods of time during the break in period. What none of the manuals say is how long is considered too long to drive constantly"
If you're on a 100 mile trip and the speed limit is 70, don't use cruise control. Simply vary the speed yourself, and periodically if you're free of other traffic, maybe let it coast down to about 65, then run it up to 75 and let it coast back. This gives the engine a chance to wear in early in its life at no set speed and will ensure good ring setting. I used this process on my '07 3.5 SE--I was about 3/4 of a quart down at the end of the first 3,500 miles change, and less than 1/2 a quart coming up on 7,500 miles. I routinely average 24-26 MPG over all.
#333 of 373 Thinking about buying a coupe

I'm thinking about buying an Altima Coupe and I'm kinda looking for feedback from people who already own one. For those of you who own a Coupe, how do you like it? Does it drive well? Any problems under the hood? Etc... any and all feedback is much appreciated!!!!!
