Default Crap, another noob price question...

Greetings:

The last time that I negotiated the price on a car, was over 10 years ago, not sure if I still have it, but I have to think that I am doing ok. Here is what I have come up with;

I realize that a lot of us ask "is it worth it," or "is it a fair price," and here it happens again I'm not in a rush, just not sure whether I should pull the trigger or not.

2013 Touring 6Spd Manual
Sport Package / Nav Package
Pearl White w/Grey Interior
Splash Guards, Carpeted Mats, Illuminated Kick Plates etc.

MSRP on the car as it sits is $46,283.00. On the table with a tank of fuel is $44,219.17 OTD in California. Tax and registration here is $3,456.00, so I'm thinking I'm ok at 41.2k and change...

Any thoughts? Thanx in advance...

Any thoughts?

Not bad. Use the truecar price, and try to pay less than invoice, which I believe true car tells you

Gotcha, and did that. TrueCar shows $41,293, my dealers invoice shows $41,263, my price is $41,219. A little below, not a lot, and I think that I am ok with that.

Thanx!

Btw, you can message any of the dealers that are on the forum just for a quote.
CA cars are usually more expensive because they have other extended warranties on BS things like cats and O2 sensors and little things.

Wow your waaaaaayyyyyyyyy off on that invoice. The invoice is around $41,200 on that car. The Touring with nav, sport and those other features is just as high if not higher than the nismo.

Truecar is a good place to look but it goes by region so people telling you it is cheaper might be looking in a different zip. Keep in mind if you are getting a car that is on the lot the dealer gets a 2.5% hold back from Nissan on the MSRP when they sell the car. So you should be able to get it a little bit below invoice. The dealer has to make money, seems like your in a good spot.

Thanx for the reply. I just tried the NISMO on TrueCar, and in Tehama County California it came to $41,474.00. Orange County California came out @ $39,474.00. So big differences in California too. Go Figure

Here is my actual sticker and actual contract (and a few pics of my baby)

2013 Pearl white touring, sport, Nav, 7AT, kick plates, wheel locks, airbag locks, trunk mat, floor mats

drive out price 41900

0% for 60 too!

I can show you how I did it. It's not hard you just have to be patient, persistent and be ready to walk no matter how bad you want the car.

Here is the proof

My New Baby and a GREAT Deal Too
