Car Man I'm looking at a 2009 loaded Altima Hybrid which I want to lease for 24 months with 18k miles per year (will Nissan allow that?) in California. What's the current money factor rate using a Tier 0 or Tier 1 and what's the residual value for that car for that many miles and term.
Also, do you have any of the same info available for a 2010 loaded with an MSRP of $35k?

Okay, Read this POST with a caution. the writer has double dipped on the tax credit part. One is a federal credit and the other one is sales tax on the state return. NOT the same credit. Although Overall a Good Proce Paid, not an unusual situation I must say

One more thing. I'm pretty sure the $4,500 CFC is considered income and you'll have to pay tax on that.
Yes, it's still a good price but please direct your thanks toward your fellow tax payers for the CFC, Hybrid and State Sales Tax Rebates.

A) No.. the $4500 rebate isn't taxable as income (it may have been subject to sales tax, before being deducted from the price).
B) A $2356 federal income deduction for the sales tax is worth about $600 to most buyers...
Still... a good deal..

Nov 25, 2009 (8:44 pm)
Just bought a new 2009 NAH in New Hampshire, even though NH is not officially one of the 8 states. Current Nissan rebate (Oct. & Nov. 2009) for the '09 NAH is $3,500, and there may be an additional $500 Black Friday incentive. With some negotiating, dealer took an additional $3,000 off the $27,500 base sticker price (not even including their dealer-added transportation, pin-stripping and clear-cote fluff). OTD price (w/o TTL): $21,000. Deduct the $2,350 tax credit and NET = $18,650. That's a lot cheaper than a Prius or even a Civic hybrid!
Yeah depreciation is a killer when buying a '09 model in November '09, but I plan to hold on to this car for a while. Standard 100,000 mile battery/EV warranty is reassuring.
Although I didn't buy it there because of the distance, I recommend Marc Motors in Sanford, ME to anybody in New Hampshire, Maine or NE Massachusetts. They would have sold me an '09 NAH at an even more competitive price, and they are getting in 2010 NAHs.
#448 of 730 Is this a good price?
Dec 24, 2009 (1:42 pm)
I am being offered the 2010 NAH with the following:
2010 Altima Hybrid + convenience package + premium package + aluminum kick plates + wind deflector + floor mats
I am also offered lifetime power train warranty free + towing within 25 miles ... whatever that means.
26320 (after 2000 NAH rebate) + CA Tax9.25% + doc fees (55.00) + tire fees (9.00)
Is this a good price? I tried but couldnt better price from other dealers? Not sure whether i am not trying hard enough...?
#450 of 730 Cash payment qualify for cash rebate?
Dec 25, 2009 (4:39 pm)
A $3750 cash rebate is being offered on the 2009 NAH, expire in 1/04/10. Will I qualify for the rebate if the dealership is not financing the car? I am paying cash. Is it a good idea to purchase thru Costco? TIA

Yes, it should qualify.
I didn't get any price that I liked with Costco. One of the problem that I had with Costco is that it wasn't used by many dealerships.
This is the end of the month/year and some dealership may have to meet some quotas. Best advice is call the dealerships in your area, and throw out some very low offer. They will probably refuse but some may call you back.
Doing this, I ended getting my NAH with Convenience package for 22 percent below invoice in June 30 (and the cash rebate was $500 lower). Ended paying $20,600 + taxes and registration.
