Infiniti FX35 / FX50 Lease Questions

    Hi gatorfan123. How about that whole Billy Donovan mess? Not a very smooth move on his part. Anyhow, this truck's lease program varies by term. You never mentioned how long you want to lease it for, so for now I will assume that you're interested in a 36 month lease. Let me know if you want something different. Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 FX45 with 12,000 miles per year are .00126 and 53%, respectively.

    Hey Sal. Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 48 month lease of a 2007 FX35 AWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00176 and 48%, respectively. Infiniti is providing its dealers with $500 dealer cash certificates, up to three of which may be used on '07 FX35s, but I do not believe that this dealer cash is compatible with the aforementioned special lease program.

    Hi Gary. $295 per month is a pretty low monthly payment for this truck, but I see that you need to make a $3,000 capitalized cost reduction in order to reach it. I am not a big fan of making large down payments when leasing. I always advise consumers not to make them because if their vehicle was totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered there is a good chance that they will lost all, or at least part of their down payment. You would be better off leasing without making any cap cost reduction, even though it means that you will have a higher monthly payment.

    Hi Rich. The destination charge that you were quoted looks about right to me, but the bank fee looks a little high. Infiniti Financial Services does charge an acquisition fee on every vehicle that it leases, but this fee is only $595. The dealer that you are working with is either running your lease through a bank other than IFS or marking up your bank fee to add additional hidden profit to your deal. The selling price that you were quoted looks pretty good to me. Just make sure that the dealer you are working with uses Infiniti Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor of .00044 to calculate your monthly payment.

    What you were told is correct, hull22. Infiniti Financial Services' 12,000 mile per year residual values are 1% higher than its 15,000 mile per year residuals and its 10k resids are 2% higher.

    Hi redvelvet2620. The money factor and residual value that you were quoted for this car look good to me. They are right in line with IFS' current program for it. The selling price that you were quoted, $800 over dealer invoice, looks reasonable as well. I have seen a few community members who have reported getting prices that are a couple hundred dollars lower than this, but overall I would say that this is a pretty good deal.

    Hey funtodrive1. It is difficult to say what Infiniti's July lease program for the FX35 will be like. I don't expect Infiniti to make any major enhancements to its July lease program for this model, so there probably isn't much point to waiting to get one if you're ready to do so now. Again though it is difficult to say exactly what will happen next month for certain.

  • The current term I am looking at is 36 months w// 15k yr

    Am in Chicago and it seems Infiniti is giving the best deals on higher end SUV's. Is this a good deal? It is an 08 FX with Touring and Tech. Thanks for any help.

    MSRP: 46,725
    MF: .00125
    Down: $4,000
    Payment: $499
    Miles/year: 15K
    Period: 24 months
    Residual value: 30,371 (65%)
  • Your right about Billy D, but we're still happy to have him back. :-)

    I was actually looking for a 24 or 21 month lease on the FX45. Based on the numbers you gave me, I assume Infiniti does not have the same lease support between FX35 and FX45.

    As I said previously my lease on a FX35 ends in Aug and I was looking to see what it would cost to move up to the FX45. However, based on these numbers, it would appear the FX35 is a much better value.
  • Car_man and all,

    Im about to ink a deal on an FX35, and just wanted to know if this is a decent deal.

    Its a FX35 w touring and hands free pkgs, also has splash guards, roof rails, and cargo mat -- MSRP $42420.

    21 months 12K miles/ yr - $450 payment
    $3500 total drive off including taxes (8.75), first payment, 595 acq fee, and plates. IFS Lease.

    Is this a good deal to move forward with ?

    It looks good to me! How much is the down payment out of the $3,500? What state are you in?

    I just inked a deal on a 2007 FX35 AWD with Tech/Sirius, touring, hands-free, roof rails, cargo mat, sunroof visor, and mud guards. Color: Ivory/wheat.

    MSRP: 46,625
    Length: 21 month/12K
    Inceptions: 1,500
    Payment: 493/month (includes taxes & gap)

    I feel pretty good about the deal. It was all negotiated over the phone. Took a few days, but I was exceptionally pleased with the dealer. Good luck to all still looking.
    (FYI: Inventories & color selections were getting slim on the 2007'S)

    Should I accept this or is there more room to negotiate for a lower price?

    no $526.59 does not include tax. Tax is paid up front. Or can be rolled into payments which would take the payment up a bit.
