...so vague a question. If the qoute is on a HB then too high. Model change goin on right now with HBs. Let dealer know that you know of the model change. Also, the salesman is easiest to work with. It's the loan officer that sukks. Don't buy the loan insurance. If you buy low enough, than your resale value is high. If you buy @ 18 it will be 20 out the door. If you are spending 20 g then you should get a used g35 or maxima, etc. I don't think Vs are worth 20 out the door. It's an entry level car remember. and a good used or certified infiniti or maxima will do nicely, and those cars get great mpg. Just my opine.

I paid $11,400 for mine(before down payment). No offence to you guys with the higher end models but I would not pay any more than $15K for a Versa. I'd rather get a used Sentra, or Altima. My opinion.

Edmunds.com Without Navi MSRP is $19,440, the price you should pay is $18,243. I dont know what your credit is, but finacing thru Nissan is another $500 off. Id say under $18K out the door, and then finance thru Nissan with aditional $500 off, so Financing about $17,500 out the door. But for that price, make sure you test drive the Versa, cube S, sentra Base/S/SR, and a base/S model altima. All could be gotten for about the same price of $17,500-$18K. Nissan's taking up to $4000 or more off altima. So an S model for about $21500, could be gotten for $17,500 or less. My 2 cents. :) hope this helps, something I didnt think about when I bought my Versa.

My '07 HB S had 21,000 mi. Nissan dealer car. Power group and mats. 4AT. Program vehicle. 12,900 out the door. I will keep this car after loan is paid and save some dough. It's a great riding car in it's segment. It drives smoother then some midsize.:Angel_anim:

I paid $20k CAD for my Versa SV sedan with the convenience package. That included taxes and transport.
Mine was $21K before taxes and extended warranty. Plus all the stuff I've added to her over the years, haha.
She's almost fully paid off too, only a few more payments :woot: it's gonna be an amazing feeling when she is fully paid off :blue flower:

To find a great dealer near you, google "Nissan Dealers Near_____(Your Location)"

You should see stars near the dealer's name. If they're focused on customer satisfaction, then you'll see more stars. A dealer with 3 stars or less, you should avoid.

I paid 12,500 out the door for my 2012 S Hatch 6speed. Plan on using the saved cash to put better aftermarket goodies on
Say what? :shocked: How did that happen? I've seen most at around 14-16k. *saw and had to reply* :)

Yeah I managed to get a pretty good deal. Basically the dealer only made the $400 factory holdback. They got me to that price by using a few incentives, such as a financing incentive for 500 and a recent graduate discount for another 500. Maybe a couple more incentives too. I went to a few and I was pretty particular that I had to have it in black and it had to be Manual. The dealer that sold me the car (Nissan of Antelope Valley) actually didnt have the car on their lot, but the salesman went and drove 80 miles to Bakersfield to swap for the car I required. I HIGHLY recommend Antelope Valley Nissan.

I found out a couple things in the process as well. First, manual transmissions are cheaper ON THE STICKER PRICE, but actually due to limited supply (especially in Southern CA) and a strong demand, manuals tend to actually command a higher price than Auto because people are willing to pay a premium for the 6 speed.

Second, the factory closely watches where people buy cars in comparison to where they live. The finance guy at the dealer explained that when you visit your local dealer and start a deal and cant finish, then go to another (perhaps further) dealer and they are able to close the deal, it is called a "pump out" and it looks really good for the dealership to have that.

I am very very pleased with my purchase, thus far. I have power windows and mirrors and doorlocks, the basic essentials.

That is awesome that you got all of those incentives. :thumb2: That does makes sence that the 6sp would be a bit higher, especially if in high demand. And of course car prices vary by location (state). I'm a bit jealous of the price you got your car for. I too have the basics. It was a lessoned learned, and am now more knowledgeable on the car buying process.
