#371 of 730 Portland, Oregon, 2009 Altima Hybrid Technology Package
Jun 13, 2009 (7:23 am)
We just purchased a 2009 NAH fitted with the technology package at Tonkin Nissan in Wilsonville, Oregon. The price was just over $28,000 after the $3500 Nissan rebate available through June of this year. Moreover, there is also a very nice $2,350 federal tax credit coming, along with another $1,500 state tax credit here in Oregon. Therefore, the final price for the vehicle was just over $24,000.
The dealership experience was very good. The staff was friendly, professional and well informed. The only issue is simply availability; there was only one NAH in stock when we arrived for a test drive.
The car is very comfortable inside, fully appointed, handles well on the road, very low emissions and good mileage, and it performs well for a hybrid. We test drove the Toyota, Honda and Ford hybrids as well, but the NAH was the clear choice for us.

It sounds like you got a nice deal. However, the federal tax credit is only $2,350.

#375 of 730 Price for base hybrid

Any idea on how low I can get the base hybrid?
I saw it advertised for $20k. My local dealer said he would match that price.. is this good or can I go any lower?
Also, what insurance company would you recommend for this car? We have Progressive and their quote for this car is rather high in my opinion.

$20k is pretty good. I think I've seen someone get $19499 though. Not sure if it's worth it to try and pry every penny from the salesman though

$20K is good. I know there are big Nissan rebates that expire at the end of this month, up to $3,500. There is also 0% financing.
The cheapest insurance I could find was through American National.
#379 of 730 Price for base hybrid

Lowest price I got so far is 19.8k + tax/reg from 1 dealer that is a little remote
Does that quote seem serious to you? My local dealers are pretending that it isn't.. (of course )

For the base NAH it's likely a serious quote. Last week, we purchased ours for $19,999 after deducting the rebate .
However, the first dealer we actually went to did not believe the quote and would not even counter offer us. We left and bought it the next day at the advertised price. Today, my wife's niece's husband went to the dealer that did not sell us the car and he dropped my name. They were willing to sell it to him for the $19,999. The car probably has more miles on it now(saw it on their online inventory list and it was the only one in that color on their lot). We saw it last Saturday and it had 50 miles on it. The one we bought had eight miles on it. We did have to travel an extra 15 miles to buy it but we saved $1500.00 in the process.
