Actually, it was a form called "Vehicle Cash Purchase Agreement". The information for the car was for a 2008 Altima Hybrid, blue in color, with a price of $24,986 before the rebates. It was signed by the general manager , who stated I would qualify for the rebate of $1250 that Nissan was promoting till 6-2, and also he would give me the extra $500 for the Memorial tent sale. Are you saying that because it was a Purchase Agreement, I don't have a case? I was thinking of calling Nissan. I would take another hybrid, but would want the rebate price. Thanks for your help.

Lynche, that was the dealer add I used to leverage the local dealer down. Looking at the Vin # that car was at least 6 months old. The local dealer had a similar deal for a car built in Dec 07(Silver with Black); I ended up with Gray and Black and a car built in Apr 08 with 6 miles on ODO(Never test driven). I just sent a friend down to the same salesman to get the same price..although I see the extra $500 memorial day cash back is no longer available. Thanks

Did you end up getting a hybrid Altima? I too am in Portland and looking serioulsy at getting one. Any info would be appreciated. Also, if you live in Oregon, I'm pretty sure you won't pay any state taxes for a vehilce purchase. It's based on your state of residence, rather than the place of delivery.

I'm up in Oregon and looking to fly down and get a NAH from somwhere in the Bay area. At this point in the model year, based on the deals I've seen on this post, I would think invoice minus the $1250 rebate would be reasonable for an '08 hybrid. Plus dealers are advertising 4K off of base models on Craigslist. Here's a post from Bay Area Nissan:
Bay Area Nissan Craigslist
The posting is for $21,999 for a NAH, which I'll assume is a base model. That's about $4K off MSRP, so I would think something similar would be available for a car with only the CONVENIENCE pkg, around, $23K, but that's not the case.
I was quoted $26,000 ($1500 off list) less the rebate, so $24,750.
From what I've seen, I should be getting better quotes. Has anyone purchased a NAH convenience recently in CA?
Also, where can I find invoice? I can't find invoice on edmunds or carpoint.
Thanks in advance.

08 NAH base invoice $23,591 (at least in March 2008 when I was buying).
Connection pkg $3817, Tech pkg $5551, moonroof $738, alum kickplates $134, floor mats $84, moonroof wind deflector $71.
Interestingly, 2008 base invoice went up only $149 over 2007. It'll be interesting to see what the 09s are, given the gas landscape. Supply and demand rules.
I 'm now looking for an extended warranty. I see that someone pd $1595 for Gold Preferred, with other info being $1300 and invoice being $915. Anyone have other info or recommendations on which package?

"Are you saying that because it was a Purchase Agreement, I don't have a case?"
No, I said you might have a case, and if you had a Purchase Agreement, your case would be even stronger. The General Manager's signature makes it even better.
The general rule is the more specific the terms of your deal, the more likely you can enforce the deal. Also, the more you change your situation in reliance on the other party fulfilling his part of the bargain (e.g. traveling long distance, selling your car), the more likely you can enforce the deal.
Talk to a lawyer (call your local bar association for a referral to a consumer lawyer, plaintiff side), or buy a car with the same specs and invest a few bucks and time to file a small claims action for the difference between the price you paid, and the price this dealer promised. (This way, you get the car now, and get a shot at getting any difference in price between what you actually pay and the bargain price you thought you had. Otherwise, you could file suit now to get a judge to order the dealer to sell a similarly equipped car to you at your negotiated price, but then you don't have the car and there's never any guarantees you'll win in court.)
