#335 of 730 Question about my experience
Nov 13, 2008 (2:45 am)
Hi Everyone! I've been reading this site and forum for a while now and have found the information to be very useful.
I have a question about a current buying experience I am having with the Nissan Altima Hybrid 08.
I have located and negotiated a dealer down to 28500 on a 08 NAH w/ Tech Package, Sunroof, and Mats. This includes the $1000 rebate, but does not include the $149 title fee and tax. The pricing seems good and I have a written quote, but the part that concerns me is this. I saw that it had just above 350 miles on it and when I asked why, the dealer said they had bought the car in from the next state over. This triggered me to run a carfax report. The carfax supports what the dealer mentioned up to the specific town. But I also saw that there was service to the vehicle on October 15...3 months after the car went on sale. I asked the dealer about this and they said that they had to fix up a small scratch that occured on the floor or during a test drive. What do you guys think of this? The car is being sold as new, and has never had a title on it. Thanks!

We were offered a price for an '09 NAH of $29,500 including the convenience, connection and moonroof packages. We would pay license plate fees and taxes. We live in the New York area. Is that a good price?

"The car is being sold as new, and has never had a title on it."
that is really the same thing. even if a car is drive 10,000 miles and never had a title, it's still considered "new".
as for advice, I assume you have test driven the car. the mileage isn't a big deal, but if you are concerned about the service, you can always ask them to write a statement that the car has never been in an accident just to cover you $$. if you get that written statement, I would have no problems buying that car since you are getting a good price.

I test drove another altima hybrid at this dealer, but after I left, I decided that I would like the tech package.... but haven't gone back yet because this particular dealer is 150 miles away... so I haven't test drove this specific car yet, but will do so before I make the buy. If it drives any different than the other one I tested, I know that would be a problem.
#339 of 730 2009 NAH VPP price
Dec 28, 2008 (10:09 am)
I wanted to buy a NAH with the options: Connection, Tech and Convinience pkgs. This I can get through the Nissan Vehicle Purchase Program for Nissan Business Associates, which my employer is.
The price for 2009 NAH with the options I listed above, using the formula that Nissan gives out, comes to about $30,600.00 including destination, without tax and title, including the $500.00 incentive.
Edmunds show the invoice price for this configuration as $31,222 and the "What others are paying price" as $33,245.
At the first blush, the price I'm getting through VPP ($30,600) seems pretty good. What do you folks think? I'm in the SF Bay Area.

$30,600 is an outstanding price for a NAH with tech package. It would be very hard to do much better than that and you save yourself the headache of negotiating

#344 of 730 Connection + Sunroof

Where is everyone? No posts for nearly 2 months?
I am back to my car search after many-month hiatus. Have offer from Tracy, CA, for NAH Connection packgage w/ sunroof: "MSRP is $32,875; YOUR PRICE WILL BE $29,045 + FEES AFTER REBATE +TAX LIC AND DOC CA TIRE FEE."
This sounds "average". Can a better deal be had? Thanks.
