I'm in the process of buying an 05 1.8s special edition and curious as to what a good price would be to aim for while negotiating. The dealer has told me the sticker price is 15,900 for the 5 speed I want. I am also planning on going w/a company they work w/to install a sunroof w/lifetime warranty which should be an additional 700-800$. That will put me at a sticker price of around 16,700. Not counting any incentives like cash back options, etc.. what would be a reasonable amount to talk them down from this? Thanks in advance for any advice.

I got my GXE for 12,900 back in 2001. It's essentially the same car. You shouldn't pay more than 13,500 for it.

No more than 13.5. Anything over it you are getting screwed.

Invoice is 12.7
Retail is 13.3
Blue Boon it 13.0

Drive away with it for 13, considering the new design is comming, you can do that.

I bought an '04 Sentra 1.8s with

Road Trip Package (upgraded stereo, leather steering wheel wrap, cruise)
and Automatic Transmission.

That was $12,450 last May.

BTW...

I used CarsDirect.com to get my price. I told the dealer the CarsDirect price and they actually went below it. That was at Corona Nissan in Corona California.

Clarify. Is that a sales price or a final cost with financing? I'm not going to re-iterate that if you have to finance a car you shouldn't be buying it. Especially over 66 months, cripes you're going to lose money on this big time, even if you got a great deal.

Let me guess, you bought the car based on what payment they offered you?

You may want to look into buyer's remorse for your state. Check on Google, but you only have a few days to do it if at all.

how could you let yourself get suckered into paying MORE than sticker price on a brand new car?

You screwed yourself by not using your brain man. This isn't a skill, it's common sense. Shop around, know what you're buying, etc.

:rolleyes: You're paying 19k for a 12k car. for that money you could have an SRT4.

This is how people learn. By making the mistake.

ALWAYS RESEARCH A CAR BEFORE BUYING. A car is a car. Don't buy on emotion or impulse, but on common sense and fiscal responsibility.

Unless you have thousands to throw away, a large purchase like a car should be deeply investigated into and well planned. Simple sites like Edmunds and the KBB will give you info on pricing, dealer invoice and what you can expect to buy a car with the options. If you really paid almost 20 grand for your car, I feel bad for you man. Guys are getting Spec Vs fully loaded for 15, SRTs are going for about 20 and you could practically have gotten a Rex. I cannot see a dealer marking a price up this high so I will ask you this, are you in Canada?

its the actual vehicle price, excluding the total financing, less the mark-up that they never disclose to me what comprises the mark-up price of $2900. i know it was my fault because i let them do this, if i can just make that very long story short... oh my... can i still go out of this contract???

I'm confused, didn't you read over the contract you were signing? I don't mean to come off sounding condescending, but the contract was right in front of you with everything clearly spelled out...including the final sales price. If there was disagreement between the final sales price and what you and the salesperson agreed upon, didn't you ask questions?

It's amazing how many "mistakes" show up on the contract that were made by the finance guy just before you sign it. This has happened to me at several different dealerships while buying from different companies. But I've never been taken for more than what we agreed upon. I've had one finance guy try to rush me through it. I asked him if when he bought his house he allowed the mortgage people to rush him. He didn't really know what to say so I answered for him, I told him no they didn't and I'd appreciate the same courteous or he can rip up the bill of sale.

You got to read the contract.

How long ago did this deal go down? You have to help yourself. If it was only a few days ago, you need to research Buyer's Remorse in your state to see if there are any options. We can't do that for you. But if it's been a week or so and you signed the contract, you're bound to it. Period.

sorry to go a little off topic but threads like these are the reason I don't mind taking the dealerships for every ounce of profit I can. Salesmen always complain that they can't make any profit when dealing with people that know what they are doing. As many can see here, the dealer took absolute FULL advantage of this customer that didn't seem to know any better.


sorry dude :(

The salesmen may complain but nobody can force the dealership to accept a customer's offer, so it's a bogus argument that they make.

We don't know the circumstances behind what happened here.

Most salespeople are overly chatty and friendly and try to get you pumped about buying the car. They know that doing so means you're more likely to make rash decisions, which cost you money. Perhaps this happened here?
