Default Crazy deals on 90's right now

I live in Northern California. I hired my sister (lol) to send an email to every dealership within 100 miles of Sacramento that had a 2009 370Z in stock. I wrote:


I am looking for a great deal on a leftover 2009 Nissan 370Z (Base/Touring) with Sports Package in (Manual/Automatic). There are about XX of them left in Northern California and I will be buying one tomorrow (2/26). What I am looking for is your inventory of all 2009 (Base/Touring) 370Z's with Sports Package and (Manual/Automatic) Transmission. Please include the color, options and your best possible price because I won't be able to visit every dealership in one day. I will respond to your email as quick as I can. Thank you in advance!

Within 3 hours, I received a response from almost all of them. All but 2 had their "best price" and almost all of them wanted me to come down for a test drive.

MSRP on the vehicle I was looking for ranged from $35k-$36k. Invoice right around $32k-$33k. The lowest offer I got was from North Bay Nissan in Petaluma for $29,400 followed by Falore Nissan in Sunnyvale for $29,900. I worked with someone at North Bay over the phone, but felt like when I got there, they were going to pull every trick in the book to screw me (trade-in, interest rate, etc.) I decided to go to Falore Nissan and it literally took me 30 minutes from start to finish. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM. I told Falore Nissan that I would send some people in to grab the few 09's they had left. They also had a few 10's and one 40th anniversary in the back. Tell them Wade Welsh sent you in and ask for Sukhi. I think he is their Fleet Manager, but they are VERY straight forward and I had the best experience I've ever had at a car dealership there. On a side note, Stevens Creek Nissan had all their 2009's $4k off retail and said they would beat anyone's price by $100.

North Bay has 3 09 Base MT for $25,555, 2 Base+Sport MT Yellow for $28,888.
Falore Nissan has 2 09 Base+Sport AT for $29,939

Here is what I bought on 2/26/10. PM me if you have any questions. Hope this helps a few people. Peace!
