2007 Nissan Sentra with 50k miles for $9k?

Asked by May 07, 2012 at 02:16 PM about the 2007 Nissan Sentra Base

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

So, about to get a car. I found a showroom dealer selling a trade-in 2007 Sentra 2.0 with 50k miles
for $7k - add dealer fees, tax and license/registration and it comes to around $9k.

Carfax is clean. First owner was a car rental - had the car for 15,000 miles (so I don't think it's that big
of an issue). Next owner was private - bought from Nissan dealership. Shows the car had normal
inspections done, no accident or salvage history. I asked the dealer to change the tires and battery,
and they will run a full inspection (as they are an authorized dealer they have to before selling the car).

Both used and new car prices are ridiculous lately. Any opinions on this?

Side point. Not really looking at a lease as I will be driving around 5,000 miles tops per year. Don't
want to buy new as that I would do in a few years when I need a family car. This car is more of a
good economy type car with good MPG, and get me from point A to point B without breaking the
bank in both price and maintenance.

Unless your tax rate is 25%, the total price should end up in the $8,000 range. It's a killer deal. You have a 10 year 120,000 mile warranty on the CVT tranny, so it should be good to go for a long time. Don't forget to change your oil every 3,500 miles, should last you another 10 years.
