      Manual trans, any color you want as long as it's gray, black or white, less than 10 miles on the odometer for all of them. Power windows, locks, touchscreen stereo w/BT and nav, I believe, cruise, etc. Dealer price: $12,088.

      I was looking for something a little bigger, but I mean....damn

      Eh, there's a reason they're leftover and going for so low...personally every mile I've spent in the current Sentra was bleh. 10 times out of 10 I would take a similarly priced used Civic/Jetta/etc. over a $12k new Sentra.

      If you're serious, definitely test drive it first. If your goal is something that drives, has warranty, and is economical, it may fit the bill, but I wouldn't snag one solely because it's a deal.

      The bleh is expected. Believe me, I definitely wasn't looking for a Nissan. Having said that, I had a 1st gen Versa. It was a good little car and didn't give me a stitch of trouble for 8 years. Same engine/transmission combo as this Sentra. And it would be nice to have a brand-new car that doesn't have three years worth of other people's farts and boogers in it. And they're not bad looking. And, I mean....I gotta buy something at some point.

      I could throw down $12K for what amounts to half of a decent 3-year-old Outback, or $12K at the Nissan and own it free it clear. And TBH, most days I'm not gonna give a **** what I'm driving if I'm just going to work and back. Basically my heart says no and my head says yes.

      I had one as a rental a few months ago. I’m not sure how much a manual would affect it but it was pretty bad. Loud, cheap, flimsy. Ergos were pretty bad.

      I’d also much rather a civic or a Jetta.

      I suppose I might be too harsh on it. I have to consider its price point and adjust to that. So if you just want wheels, you could do worse for 12k (buying used) so if you want new this might be the best option for the money.

      If I were looking for basic transportation, $12K for a new 2019 car with full warranty is intriguing.

      So many good used cars you could get for that money. The Sentra is truly dreadful.

      In investing this is what's called a value trap

      Just because the price of something is low doesn't mean it's worth buying. The last gen Sentra in base trim is just terrible.

      for $12,000 and some change, hell yeah I would brand new comes with a warranty and you can have a manual what else can you ask for. if it's only being driven to point a to point b good mpg I think you can't go wrong with it. it ain't no luxury car but for a first time buyer or someone only needs it for a dd and doesn't give a **** about the appearance why the hell not

      It depends on what you want the car for---if it's just transportation and you don't care about the experience, then yeah, why not? I'm sure it's reliable enough and certainly cheap to own, so it could serve you well for a bunch of years. I'm not sure I would call it a "value trap" as noted above. It's just horribly boring, has poor driving dynamics, and is noticeably less refined that anything else in its class. If you're ok with that, do it!

      If you compare it to other new cars, it sure beats a Mitsubishi Mirage, which is selling for about the same money I believe.

      But if I wanted a recent/new(er) car with a warranty, I’d be really tempted to instead get a 2018 or 2019 VW Jetta with low miles and the remainder of the 6y/72k mile warranty...

      If you need a rational argument against, you'd need to balance the savings of the deal against the risk that you get sick of it and trade it in early at a loss.

      If I had a kid that needed a car for an after school job or varsity practices or college or something, sure. otherwise, for $12k I'd rather purchase a used __________.

      Probably not much demand for manual, so a lower price? It could be worth it to you for not having into sit on someone else's wet farts. It's your $$$. Test drive it and decide.

      x2. Let's see the dealer ad to see what we can pick apart with it. That price seems way out of line, IMO.
