Nissan 350Z Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • in what state are you located in in new york have menny dealers giving $10000 rebates off 350z's and quite a few dealers have sum in stock keep us updated on what you end up dooing have a grate day and thanks for reading my posting marco.
  • I have not leased a vehicle before, but planning to do so later this new year. So for example, if I am to lease a 2008 Nissan 350Z Enthusiast, what are the current residual values for a 12k miles and 15k miles, 36 months deal? And is money factor set by the manufacturer and the credit rating? Also are the residual and money factors dependent on location, states? Sorry I have a ton of questions as I have no experience in leasing.

    Thank you in advance!!
  • Greetings Crockerjarmon. Since you have never leased before, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    Here is the specific information that you're looking for. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 350Z Coupe Enthusiast with 15,000 miles per year are .00325 and 44%, respectively. If you were to lease with only 12,000 miles per year, this car's residual value would be 1% higher.

    This money factor will be higher if your credit is in really rough shape, but Nissan is much less restrictive about who qualifies for its top credit tier than Honda and Toyota are. This lease program does not vary by region.

    When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to take advantage of the cash incentives that are currently available on it.

  • I visited my local Nissan dealer (Ramsey Nissan, Ramesy, NJ) this past weekend to check out the new 370Z. They had 5 2008's INSIDE the showroom with another on the lot (saw at least six 2008's). I know at least three of these very cars were there since last spring, when I test drove one and was about to make an offer to purchase a touring edition roadster (the car had optional chrome wheels ($1,800 option), which I wanted to downgrade back to the standard rims -- salesman would not delete the optional rims claiming that he could deviate from what was on the sticker, then the stock market and the rest of the world changed and I never made an offer -- that car, awful rims and all, is still there!).

    My guess is that you can steal one of these cars. The dealer website is offering a Nismo for $31,995 -- $8,425 off of the list (they have two of them), and I am sure would take less.

    Good luck.

    Hey guys,
    I am in the DFW aera, I just picked up a fully load 350Z touring 2008, white pearl with orange burn leather with everything, nav, side airbags, aerodynamics package, 18" chrome wheels, and free tint + nitrosomething tire. The car is new, 20 miles on it :)
    The sticker was $39,000 I paid $28,900 + TTLs ... yes 25% discount, no hassle, the Internet department women was really nice to work with (north Nissan Texas ). I am pretty happy :)
  • Picked up a pearl white 2008 6-speed for $21,900 + TT&L tonight. Brand new, plastic on the seats. Three dealerships in Dallas, TX matched the price before I decided on which one had the best colors to pick from.

    MSRP was $29,x00. Ended up being right at 25% off like the guy above.
  • hello
    I've been monitoring the 08 350Z situation for the last couple months and have a couple questions. I've negotiated a buy price of 21,400 for a base 350Z 6MT at my local dealer (durham NC), but they refused to honor that price for a lease when I brought it up. I went into the dealer armed with the info from this site (thanks a bunch for that) 12k mi a year, 45% residual based on 28,5 MSRP, MF of .00325. The lease would be very attractive at 21,4 which is what I was prepared to close the deal with, but they would only discount the car to 25000 claiming that they can't apply the rebates and dealer cash to a lease... just a regular finance. is this true or are the trying to get more money out of financing it through the dealer? My next move is to call any dealers with remaining 6MT 08 coupes and ask this same question, but knowing if the incentives can or cannot be applied to a lease would help a ton. If I'm not mistaken there is a $2500 customer cash rebate and $2500 manuf. to dealer rebate available. I am also currently leasing a pathfinder, so there's another $500 loyalty cash available as well. I don't really want to consider buying because I don't want to own a Z for more than 3 years and leasing would be more cost effective. Thanks for your help!

    Looking for the current MF and Residual for a 36 month 15,000 per Lease on a 2008 350z Convertible. Hoping there is some support now that the 2009 370z is out. Any shot at lease support from Nissan on this car? There are huge manufacturer to dealer incentives and a rebate but dont know if they are good on lease.
  • the last three dealers I've contacted told me that they can no longer lease remaining 08 Z's since they're not the current model year. You should be able to get a ridiculous buying deal on them though. I was quoted $20000 for an enthusiast coupe but unfortunately was looking for a lease only.
  • steevosteevo Posts: 330
    I just realized .. The ROadster is a 2009 ... but its still the 2008 design as the 370z convertible will be a 2010 model. So I am actually looking for the 2009 Roadster lease numbers in my previous post..
    Either way, z2adambomb you are right. The buy deals are very low and nissan also has 0% finance for 60 months it seems on 08 z roadster and apparently they are out there.

    Hi steevo. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 350Z Convertible with 15,000 miles per year are an ugly .00325 and 37%, respectively. As you can see, the lease support on 2008 models is gone and it probably is not coming back.

    That's the bad news. The good news is that Nissan is providing a ton of cash support on the '08 350Z Convertible. Specifically, there is $5,000 consumer cash plus $2,500 dealer cash ($7,500 total) on this car right now.

    If you want this car, make sure to take this cash into account during your negotiations.

  • Well, I believe I may have just purchased the last of the New 2008 Nissan 350 Roadster Touring convertables with Nav, mats, kickplates, convenience net, and trunk mat
    The MSRP was $40,890.00. I purchased for $30,850. I came with my already approved 1.95% 5 year financing from a local credit union. They also took over the last 5 payments on my lease ($1,825.00). Car payments came to $588/month with $0 out of pocket.
    My question is did Nissan actually make a 2009 350 z roadster convertable? I called and visited many delerships and no one had any to show me.

    Nice deal -- and no there were no '09 370Z Roadsters.
    They are supposed to come out in '10.

    I've been looking for a 2008 leftover touring coupe at the dealers however haven't seen any left overs in MA. If anyone knows of any dealers in New England or Northeast who have some 08s left, please let me know.

    Nissan of Santa Barbara called me after I test drove a brand new 2009 370z Enthusiast. Loved the car but out of my price range. Soo long story short... they had a silver 2005 Touring Manual 6 (so it has VDC, VLSD, leather and heated seats, nice rear view mirror, metal kick plates, etc) priced at 19,995.00 with 34,700k miles on it. I was going to look at a similar one at Nissan of Thousand Oaks and test drive the 2010 370z Auto in Simi Valley Nissan.

    I test drove the one here they called me about, found a bad vibration noise behind the steering wheel, clutch is ok but not even close to new, air con. is still cold, radio is good. Only flaws, some scratching on the front passenger side, on the plastic sub woofer cover on driver side, one scratch on hood, tires are about 1/2 to 3/4 worn down but didn't see any uneven wear or odd wear. Brakes looked good, engine and transmission seemed solid. Found out it was owned by an older lady who traded it in for an Altima. She had purchased and had all serviced done at the dealership that called me, some small factory warranty stuff. Otherwise, impressively immaculate.

    I debated about the total cost of ownership over my leased car (which I was considering buying out). I would be paying 400 more in insurance per year and $8 more in gas per half tank and get less mileage. But then the dealer took my lease as a trade in, paid it off and my last two payments that equaled $500. So in the end, I got basically got the deal I originally offered, but now with 1 year power train, free oil change and fix the vibration noise that gets bad on the freeway and got rid of the lease.

    Mechanically solid, engine and transmission seem solid, getting about 19mpg city/highway at the moment but about 22-24 on highway. Clean leather and exterior, I can't complain. After 5 hours of haggling I got it down to a price I was willing to pay for it and the dealer was willing to sell. Coming from a family car, it's GREAT! So much torque and horsepower, I just baby it around mostly but when it's opened up to accelerate on the freeway, it's incredible fun.

    Nissan of Santa Barbara, California - Sales service is great, technical service is helpful, but like every consumer end dealership in this area, the technicians are just not as good as Los Angeles or in the valley. Lots of mess ups happen here at the Honda, Nissan and Toyota dealership service garages. I've had bad experience with Honda and Toyota, I've learned so I will not be using Nissan's service garage for anything major except oil changes and basic maintenance.
  • i want a 2008 350Z automatic conv. low mileage.
  • My Nissan has a marino blue (navy) body with a tan convertible top and cream leather inside.
    It has almost 17,000 miles on it. I am thinking of selling it as it mostly sits in a garage in Florida.
    It has all the add on's with the exception of the navigation system. (I have a portable GPS.)
    I am the second owner and I searched for 6 months to find this beauty and it is in great condition.
    What do you think is a reasonable price?
