#1 of 177 2008 Altima Sedan - Are they available yet?
Jul 04, 2007 (3:17 pm)
I can't seem to locate any information of the 2008 altima sedan online. I can only find information about the coup. I am looking to hopefully purchase one by the end of July. (I am in the Philadelphia region)

I don't think they're out yet. not much changes from the 2007's. all I know of as far as news, would be this:

Knowing that you lose value on a car as soon as you drive it out of the lot, wouldn't it be better to buy a 2008 at this point?

I think it would be the BEST time to buy a 2007. The changes from 2007-2008 are superficial--you should be able to get a very good deal on a 2007, maybe even a rebate before year's end. There is also another dimension to consider, too. Provided you can find exactly the color and equipment combination you like still on a lot, say you drive 15,000 miles a year--buy your 2007 now, it will probably have a lower-mileage advantage over the other 2007's bought a year ago, helping reduce the amount lost on depreciation. A year from today, you will have a two-model-year-old car with 15,000 miles on it versus a one-model-year-old car with the same mileage if you buy the virtually idential 2008--in addition to the depreciation of the 2008 and likely no discount off the sticker. I'll admit I didn't follow my own advice, as I liked the 2007 so much, especially the CVT availability, I bought in December--I was very particular about exactly what colors I wanted for both exterior and interior, as well as equipment--I didn't want to wait 'till end of year when I might have had to settle on a compromise. As it was, my car still had to come from another dealership, 'tho not too far away.

...if you get the 3.5 models...but standard ABS for the 08 models would be well worth the wait over 07s because ABS is HARD to find on the 2.5S models.

I heard from Nissan USA that they are coming out middle of next month, but don't know if some states will get them earlier than others. Yes the changes are miniscule (ie # of coat hooks reduced).
#7 of 177 Color Choices for the Altima Sedan
Jul 12, 2007 (7:40 pm)
I am interested in a 2008 Altima Sedan S model (since it will have ABS as standard) and I saw the color choices for the Altima Coupe. I hope more colors are offered for the sedan over the coupe. The color choices for the coupe are pretty limited. Also, I wonder when the brochures for the Altima Sedan will be available???
#8 of 177 Re Are 08 Altimas Available?

Last week a dealer here in St Louis took my deposit on a 2008 Altima sedan. The understanding is that it will be ordered for me tomorrow (1 Aug 08) and then be delivered in early Sept 08.
My motivation for ordering an 08 was that dealers could not find an 07 with color Pebble Beach and with the SL package and the Connection package in this district.
The contract specifies the same price as I had agreed to for an 07 (had they located one like I wanted) but I will not get the 0.7% financing.
#9 of 177 Stability Control?
Aug 05, 2007 (12:10 pm)
Does anyone know if stability control will be available on any 2.5 models? Only hybrid and V6 models have it available for 2007.
The 2008 Accord will likely have it, so maybe Toyota and Nissan will increase availability on their sedans also.

Based on Nissannews website, the '08 should be in the lot already or sometime soon.
