Hi I was wondering how most of you pay for your new Spec-V's and new Sentra's in general. Are any of you leasing? Parents paying for it? Are you buying? If so, what are some of your monthly payments like? Are you paying for 36, 48, 60, 72 mo.'s? I know I'm asking a lot of questions, but sometimes when you want to spend this much money (you don't have), you want to make sure you're going about it right.

They wanted 19200 for it, and paid my state tax and title. Came out to be around 1000 dollars in all, so you might say I got it for 18200. Sticker price was 19,514.00.

It was a loaded Spec V, I didn't say FULLY loaded because it didn't have the side air bags and YUCK, the ABS. Sorry, I just don't like ABS.

I financed it through my bank. Got like a 7% interest rate for 60 months. I paid 3500 down and financed I think 16200. It comes out to like 325.00 a month. I financed over a little more than what I owed after down payment and used that money to pay up on my insurance so I didn't have to worry about it.

Oh yea, 24 year old married college student, so I financed it on my credit with a bank I have done business with in the past.

Since you're in the market for a new car you're going to want to consider incurance as well.

I'm 24, married, no negatives on my record, insurance is with Farm Bureau, and its 158.00 every 3 months.

Oh yea I live in a college town in Mississippi.

And my tag was like $450.00 which I didn't think was all that bad.

well

Out of college for a couple years now. Renting a room from the parents till life settles. I put $1600 down and financed through my bank @ 6.8%, no co-signer = $350 a month for 5 years. Not too too bad but, I will slam some of the payments away when I sell one or both of my project cars next summer.

How I'll be able to afford two late-model Sentra's

Well, I think I want to get my payments down in the 300's for 4 years. I know it will be tight but I think I can do it by saving for a huge down payment. Problem is I have a '99 GXE I'm still paying for but I think I'm going to get it paid off early. I didn't realize it, but I've been spoiled with the payments on that. I bought it new in 2000 as a closeout for 13,000. I put down 2,000 and financed 11,000. I've been paying 258 a month which is in the neighborhood for me to make double payments sometimes. My idea is to keep my GXE, buy the Spec-V and get a storage for it so it will be considered "garage kept." This is will enable me to use my current car as a daily driver and the Spec-V as my high-performance pampered, twice-a-month weekend warrior. Now to be able to do this, I can push my current payments to my loan's maturity date of March 2004. If I can somehow save up another down payment that I would usually put on my current car, say in my savings account I'll have 3,870 dollars in the bank if I started saving January 2003 until March 2004. That will be enough to go to the Nissan dealership and get my new Spec-V. Also in March 2004 I'll turn 25 which in my opinion is a milestone worth celebrating. And from that point on, I'll have two Sentra's to my name, one of them paid for and the other as my pampered toy!

Got mine for 19k with Sunroof, audoio, and cd changer. Also an extra 1k for leather seats. For some reason dealers aroud Houston were replacing the red cloth seats.

I put 2k down, and the loan is 18.6k. It came out to $430 for 48 months after the interest of 4.9%.

Bought mine used off a guy that was laid off and couldn't keep it. It was mint and only had 8K on her.

Paid $16,800
5K down
5% Financing for 60 months (5 yrs) through Credit Union

Pretty damn cheap I'd say for a car like this! I'll pay it off early as well.

actual price is too embarassing to post. i lived out in a noncompetitve market before moving to a city. but i got 340 a month for 60 mos @ 2.9% financing thru nissan. its nice because with that interest rate i see a difference in every payment.
