wow! the Altima Hybrid now has $5000 of incentives in CA and OR When posting a response to http://priuschat.com/forums/newbie-forum/80763-tax-incentives-buying-new-prius.html, I noticed that thanks to West Nissan Dealers Altima Hybrid Offers - 0.0% APR - $279 Lease - Nissan USA, there are $5K of incentives on the NAH. I put in 95120 (where I used to live), 92101 (a random San Diego zip code), and 90024 (UCLA's zip), 97229 (a Portland zip) and it's available in all those areas. If Nissan isn't renewing them (I have no idea if they will or if they've been doing this for awhile now), then one better act fast. $1K of it ends 5/31 and the other $4K ends 6/1. Then there's the $2350 Federal tax credit (New Energy Tax Credit for Hybrids). I think both these together make the car quite a bargain. If you're in the the market for a hybrid, the NAH is available in your area and you don't need Prius-class mileage, it wouldn't hurt to try your own zip in the above page. The 198 hp is nice too.
