#233 of 730 Re: 2008 Altima Hybrid price [kaloisa]
May 27, 2008 (11:05 am)
I purchased an 08 NAH with Tech and Sunroof about 7 weeks ago from Bruce Bennet Nissan in Wilton, CT. I shopped the deal pretty hard by phone and email, and ultimately Bruce Bennet was the best out the door price (about $800 better than the next best offer I had). At the time they had more hybrids than any other dealer I dealt with, but they did not have the color/equipment mix I wanted (they got it within 3-4 days).
We love this car. After 2,500 miles, I have been averaging between 35-37 mpg with at least 60% of that being city driving.
#234 of 730 anybody looking for NAHs now?
May 28, 2008 (4:16 pm)
I've been calling around today and I'm having trouble finding anybody willing to do anything less than MSRP! I know a couple of weeks ago people were getting much better details, but at this point, the number of cars available has dropped dramatically in the last couple of weeks (based on the inventories available online). Any recent quotes that look better?
#235 of 730 How did I do?

We picked up a 2008 NAH on Sunday. Options are tech, moonroof, mats. We paid $30515 before the $1250 rebate & extra $500 Memorial Day rebate. This was at Future Nissan in Roseville, CA.
We also purchased the extended warranty. $1595 for the Gold Preferred, 84mo, 100K, $50 deductible.
I think we got a fair deal on the vehicle but may have paid too much for the warranty. Has anyone else been purchasing the extended warranty? What have you been paying and for what coverage?

I think I was quoted $1300 for that warranty. The "invoice" cost on it is $915, according to Consumer Reports.

Excellent deal, smoder! Han Lee's Hilltop Nissan in Richmond California was advertising $21,388 for a base model that had an MSRP of $26,075, but that was including a $500 rebate during Memorial Day weekend's Nissan National Tent Event. A week later, they were advertising one at $21,888; same MSRP so I think it might have been the same car. Don't know if anything was wrong with it; supposed to be new.

#241 of 730 dealer gave hybrid promised to another dealer

I decided to get the Altima Hybrid after learning of the Nissan incentives, $1250 , plus I was promised the extra $500 for the Memorial Day sale. I put a $300 deposit down and was told the vehicle ,was coming in on May 25th. When I inquired about the car, I was told the owner promised it to another dealership, and they tried to sell me a white one , fully loaded. I chose the blue Hybrid, was quoted a price for 24,500, and have a purchasing agreement. The salesman said there should be another sale coming soon, but I felt I was screwed over. I don't know if I should even bother contacting Nissan.

If you put down a deposit and had identified a specific vehicle, price and delivery date, I'd say you were screwed over. Sounds like bait and switch. Talk to a consumer protection lawyer and ask if you have a case. It would really help your case if the dealer gave you a receipt for your deposit that gave all the details, e.g. negotiated price, identified the car (VIN or stock # would be ideal), which would allow you to argue you had a written contract notwithstanding that it wasn't on dealers form purchase agreement. If so, you could get the difference between the price you agreed, and the cost of the substitute.
Short of a lawsuit, file a complaint with your local BBB (Google BBB), complain to DMV which regulates dealers, and write a review on Edmonds dealer review. Name names as long as you stick to the facts.
