I just want to clarify something here.

I'm not slamming the dealership I bought my cube from (Daytona Beach Nissan).

They are not a bad dealership to deal with, but like most dealerships you need to be aware of every term and condition you're agreeing to.

All in all I really do like Daytona Beach Nissan and they have a good staff. My salesman Gary Malloy was IMHO a very straight shooter and treated me right. The finance department like at most dealerships bear watching.

Bear watching :D

Its hard enough to finance a car while having to watch bears. If I saw one it would bare watching. Just kidding you. Working with sales is no problem but, the finance person is the work.

Like when they charge you $500 for registration that should have been $90.
Yeah, that as well as dealers fees. Dealers fees are anywhere from $399 to about $799 and although 95% of the dealers have this fee now days, it's a completely bogus fee. It's nothing more than an arbitrary fee that most dealerships tack on as nothing more than additional profit. Many dealerships tacked on this fee to cushion the blow by savvy buyers who wheel and deal for discounts in both the cost of the car and optional equipment. Next time you're visiting a dealership, ask him / her to show you exactly what you get for this dealer fee. Everything he / she will point out is already covered somewhere else in the price. I know this cause I was a car salesman for a while. - Aloha, Dano

I bought mine out of state, thus they said they had to collect the taxes up front (some requirement) I think it was BS. Once I got it registered they over charged me hundreds of dollars in taxes and sent the the state the right amount. I will refrain from saying more.

I bought mine out of state as well. But fortunately the dealer charged me the right amount in taxes based on my state sales tax and not Florida's. I wish I could have gotten away paying Florida's sales tax, it's lower tnan TN.

I'm sad to see threads like this. My personal experience with both the sales team AND the finance people at the Dealership where I bought mine (Zimbrick on the eastside of Madison - shoutout to John and Mike) was great. John, the sales guy, was totally no pressure straight forward and all that. Mike (we called him "Mike the Magic Money Man") just crunched the numbers and made it work for us. OR maybe we just caught the finance man on a good day. ;)
