Small Price Hike On Nissan’s Sentra And Maxima Models

August 22, 2010

When I was Internet Manager for a major car dealer with a focus on marketing used vehicles, it was well known in the industry that the Nissan Sentra was more than a good deal. The Sentra compared favorably to the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla in size, performance, gas mileage, and 5-year maintenance costs, but savvy buyers could usually save a thousand or two on the price of pre-owned models.

To this day I still recommend the pre-owned Sentra to family and friends who need good, reliable transportation, but are on a strict budget. The Sentra is great if you need a car that won’t drain your bank account with excessive maintenance costs, but can save you money upfront on the purchase price.

A Modest Price Hike
My personal recommendation won’t change just because Nissan announced a modest price hike on 2011 Sentra models. Nissan says they have “realigned” their option equipment for the Sentra, along with boosting the price by $100 from the 2010 models. The 2.0 Sentra sedan’s Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $16,270. This includes a $750 destination charge. The Sentra SE-R Spec V 2.5-liter with six-speed manual transmission remains unchanged at $20,830.

Want to save a ton of money before the end of the month? The 2010 Nissan Sentra has year-end incentives of zero percent financing for 60 months or up to $2,000 Retail Cash. This is a great deal on a very good car and a rare opportunity to save big bucks on a new Sentra. Remember that you can still negotiate the selling price of any 2010 model regardless of price incentives from the manufacturer. This is a way to further maximize savings.

Nissan Maxima
The 2011 Nissan Maxima has had its price boosted by $120 over the 2010 models. The 3.5 S CVT model’s MSRP (including $750 destination charge) starts at $31,560. The Maxima SV CVT model starts at $34,280.

Nissan is also offering huge savings on remaining 2010 Maxima models. Get up to $2,500 in Retail Cash or zero percent financing over 60 months. These year-end incentives are available to August 31, 2010.
