#447 of 730 2009 Nissan Altima Hybrids -- Good Deals
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.
#452 of 730 Great deal from Dorschel
Dec 29, 2009 (6:54 pm)
Dorschel is selling most of their remaining 2009 hybrids for about $10,000 off. some of them are a little less depending on what they are equipped with.
I just got home after the best car buying experience I have EVER had. I spoke on the phone earlier in the morning with the sales rep to have them set one aside, came in drove it, loved it. They offered to prep it so I could leave with it today, and it was ready in a few hours.
No hassles, no headaches, no annoying upsells etc. They said here is a website with more warranty info if you want it, here are some other things you can do later on if you like.
Picked up a loaded one with more options than I can list - msrp 34,900 I set out looking for a base model one and decided that the back up camera, leather, etc was worth the extra (that and no one has any base models left around here).
so the price works out as follows
-$4250 rebate ($3750 in lieu of apr and $500 holiday cash)
$24900 + sales tax
-2350 tax credit (collected later)
-sales tax deduction if you are eligible and the amount you save will vary.
Over all about $22550 + sales tax and dmv fees for a fully loaded one.
I also pre-purchased the 3 year / 45k maintence package (oil change + tire rotation) for $386, I would have spent that much anyway on the oil changes, so looked like a nice little bargain.

I bought a 2010 fully loaded NAH
MSRP 34,920 (Tech package, etc etc) for $31,100
$500 bonus cash back
$2350 Tax Credit from Uncle Sam
0.9% for 60 months
I think I would have been better off taking a higher interest rate and $3,000 cash back, I could have saved roughly $500 more throughout
the financing. But I decided to buy my car in November instead of December...oh well.
The best best best deal nissan offers is an 8 year 150,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty. No joke. That is the only reason I went with a Nissan Altima vs. a prius or fusion hybrid. I drive a lot. That piece of mind is good to have. I bargained and bought it for $2100. You can't get that anywhere else.
I'm very happy with my purchase.

#456 of 730 2010 NAH purchase questions
Feb 28, 2010 (11:12 pm)
Hi all -
i'm buying my new 2010 NAH at stevens creek nissan in san jose, ca, and this is the deal i'm getting. i put a $500 deposit down tonight, and will pick up the car tomorrow and pay the balance (they had to bring it in from another dealership about two hours away).
MSRP 29,080 hybrid with convenience package
minus 3500 from the dealership
minus 3000 Nissan incentive for February 2010
base price= 22580 + tax + DMV fees
is this a good deal? i've just started reading these forums and am concerned with some of the reported engine problems. i am buying the car for the gas mileage and solid reviews in consumer reports.
any help? i have waffled between this car and a very comparably priced subaru legacy. i'm the first one i know of to purchase a hybrid, and just might need some reassurance on the wisdom (or not) of the decision. thanks!
