The price seems to be retail price for that car. See if you can get it closer to $13K. If you heard bad things about the CVT, then heed them. While Nissan has embraced the idea of the CVT as well as other manufacturer's, like Subaru, I don't particularly like the idea of them. Once they fail, a shop does not just rebuild them, they replace them due to the complexity. Some consumers love them, others don't. You have to decide if you want to roll the dice. Heck, go manual trans.

I have a cheat sheet from Consumers Report. Don't know how reliable it is, but it doesn't even have it on the Reliable Used Car list. Anyway, maybe Toms answer might be good?
