How does one know if they’re getting a good deal? Sounds like there will always be that mystery of what the agreement is between the dealer and the manufacturer.

The SV with both packages is usually around 37k for MSRP, so there's significant discounting from my experience. Are people really getting 10k off before tax, fees, etc.?

As for offering 2k lower, definitely go for it, and let us know how it goes.


UPDATE: $3K Duke Energy rebate CANNOT be combined with the $4K incentive for NMAC financing. It seems all the dealers are settling firm around $32K OTD. I guess we'll see when I walk in what it really will be like.


Yep probably offer 30K when i show up. It means without taxes and fees and including the $3K Duke energy rebate then the actual sale price is around 28,750. Even at $32K OTD, and taking out the Duke Energy rebate of $3K, it means they are still discounting it by about $3.5K ($37K-$4K + taxes, fees, etc.). Just in the last week, I've seen the similar SV units (some with all weather + tech, some just tech, etc.) move pretty quickly at multiple dealers in the area, so I feel like they think they will move just as fast at $32K OTD. One dealer was not at all excited with this OTD price, while another is committed to having me sign today (I'm taking my time though.)

The days of $10K off only applied to the 2017 / 2016 units as that was literally right before they were starting production on the 2018 units.

But the fact that pricing here is mysterious, is another reason why many hate going to car dealers, because you never really know what the price is. It all depends on your negotiation skills, which it really shouldn't. One of the Nissan salespeople was honest and even informed me that he doesn't even get to see the official "hold back" or incentives that are given to the dealership as a whole each time a vehicle is sold. In some cases, they can be $5,000+ even AFTER you negotiate down the price for a small sedan. Who knows what the going rate of "hold back" is being applied to LEAFs these days....

I am looking at a 2018 Nissan Leaf SV with all weather packagte, tech package, cargo mats, splash guards, cargo cover

$37,000 MSRP

Less
Dealer Discount $2000
Model Year Savings: $2000
Nisaan Bonus Cash: $2500
NNMAC Captive Cash: $1000

NET $30,000



What is your thought on this pricing? Is the dealer discount sufficient? Is it unrealistic to think I can do better?

Without seeing the tax and fees on yours, it's hard to say. The out the door price should be 32k or less since that's the best deal I'm seeing.

Looks like a good deal, I personally went for the SL at 38.5K and paid 35K out the door with dealer, state fees etc. back in June.

NET after federal tax rebate is $22,500 - Can't complain for what you are getting overall right?

Are you including a state a tax credit as well, like the $5,000 in Colorado?

I think the OP for this price quote has not confirmed if that "NET" price includes taxes, fees, etc. If it does include all the fees and sales tax it's a very good deal I think. If not, then it seems in line with the deals we are getting OTD in NC. ($32K).

Just took advantage of this rebate

https://www.eversource.com/content/docs ... e34c262_12

and traded my 2015 S for a 2019 SV. Circumstances changed and the 2015 range was no longer meeting my needs. Really liking the e-pedal and adaptive cruise control.
