I live in Washington DC and bought my new 2008 Altima Hybrid from Quirk Nissan in the Boston area and had a great buying experience there.
My story; I was going to buy it in NYC but walked out after feeling abused by a dealer who changed the deal on me in the last part of negotiations, obviously taking advantage of my coming from out of town. I guess he didn't think I would walk.
I immediately called the Quirk owner. I knew Quirk had a good reputation but I didn't want to go to Boston unless I had to. Not only did the dealership turn on a dime for me, they honored an excellent price quote (and I had shopped this) and everything else they said on the phone/websites. It was the most professional experience with a dealership I have ever had. Being a woman in my 50's, you can imagine how I may have been treated over the years. I am going on here because I only happened to see this email and I am very pleased to offer this advice as a giveback for the advice I received on this site when I was needing it. I still do love my car by the way.
Good luck and feel free to ask me further Qs if you need to.

#544 of 730 July 2011 Altima Hybrid prices

I'm trying to get quotes from dealers on a 2011 Nissan Altima Hybrid with Convenience and Premium packages. I think it is rare for the dealerships to receive them with just those two packages and not also the Technology (nav) package, because I did inventory searches of 12 dealerships in the New York/CT, and I had a hard time finding a car optioned the way I'd like.
So far, I have no quotes on the exact car I'm looking for, but I do have a few data points. I've had one dealership offer $7600 total (including a $4000 rebate from Nissan) off of a no-options Hybrid ($27,560 MSRP) putting it just under $20k before TTL. Another offered $8200 off of MSRP (again including the rebate) on a Hybrid with all three packages ($34,990 MSRP). Makes sense - the more options, the more margin they have.
Can anyone give me a few more data points on recent Altima Hybrid prices? Is more than $8200 off possible? Thanks in advance!
Also, regarding the tax credit, it is very clear that no vehicles purchased by individuals after 12/31/2010 are eligible for a tax credit.:
However, I think there may still be a tax credit available to business purchasers, leading to the confusion. I could be wrong about that, though, since this kind of information is very ambiguous:
