Infiniti FX35 / FX50 Lease Questions



  • Long Island. I didn't get the actual cap cost and the money factor etc. So I wasn't sure if this was really good.

    Looks like a great deal to me. MSRP must be around 47500. That's a steal. Good luck.

    DO NOT go to Douglas Infiniti in Summit. They are a bunch of crooks!

    Hey just out of curiosity, did they honor the $1000 factory to dealer incentive? I can't see why they wouldn't, but some people in the forum said they were told "No". Your deal makes me believe that they did. Did you get it yet?

    Can anyone verify what the new July lease variables are? Residual / Money Factor for a 24 month / 12k lease?
  • dwass1dwass1 Posts: 3
    Would you think the July resdiual is reduced because we are approaching the end of the model year? Would the residual increase at the onset of the 2008 year?

    Should be 68% with a MF of .00026

    went to my local Infiniti dealer in Richmond last night to lease an 07 FX35. Had a number to get to based on info from this site. Looking at tour, tech hands free with a 46,620 msrp and wanted to get to 41,700 buy price. First they came back with an 08 instead of the 07 and wanted $818/mo for 24 mo and 15k mi/yr. Told them I didn't ask for an 08 and they were crazy with the $818 even if I did. So they went back to recalculate and returned with $620 for an 07 with sports rather than tech!!! Again told them forget it. The insisted there is no way I could ever get the FX package I wanted for anything less. Looks like I'll be driving 2 hours to Tysons Corner like I did last year when I bought the wifes G35 coupe.
    Am I realistic thinking I can get this FX for around $500/mo for 24 months 15k mi/yr? The lease calculators say I can.

    I think that might be a little on the low side for a 46K car. 66% residual for 15K and a MF of .00026 you can kind of get a ballpark of what you should be paying. Try If you go to Tysons talk with Mike Walker (the GM). I've dealt with him a bunch in the past. He's one of the good ones! He won't BS you.

    An e-mail today from the Infiniti dealer in Troy, MI gave a first offer of this:

    2007 FX35 AWD w/ Touring & Misc
    MSRP = $42425
    Quoted CapCost = $39,483
    Invoice = $38,878 (from

    Residual = 67%
    Money Factor = 0.00026
    Bank Fee = $595
    License Fee = $15
    MI Tax Rate = 6%
    Calculated Monthly = $489
    Quoted Monthly = $507

    Here's how they're making their money:

    CapCost Mark-up = $605 over invoice
    Doc Fee = $199
    Monthly Add-on ??? = $18/month

    I really, really hate dealing with dealerships. :P
  • aephemeaepheme Posts: 48
    Oops -- I just realized I calculated this wrong. There is no monthly add-on, the calculated monthly and the dealer monthly match.

    Also, the above rate is for 12k. -1% Residual for 15k. I can't believe that the residual dropped by 5% in a single month! That's ridiculous!

    I also received info for the 2008 today. For 24 mos / 12k, the residual is 70%, money factor is 0.00237 (or 5.69% APR) and they expect to get them in August (not late July).

    I'm bummed. I so wish I had jumped on this deal in June... it was fantastic at that point. The new residual really makes this not nearly as good. I may wait for the 2008, but the high APR makes that not as good either.

    Argh. So much for an Infiniti.
  • The dealerships in Florida, according to their websites already have the '08s.
  • Carman,

    Would you please tell me what the Residual and Money factor is for a 24 month lease and 12k miles for a 2007 FX35 2WD with tech, touring, sports, handsfree?

    A dealership told me the residual is 66% and MF is .0010.

    Do you think this lease is a good deal?

    2007 FX35 AWD
    $529 a month excluding tax
    39 months lease
    $0 due at signing
    $0 security Deposit
    10k miles per year

    Do I need more info or is this good enough to make a decision?

    Thanks for your comments.
  • 2007 FX35 2WD wth sports,tech,touring,handfres,splash guards, cargo mat

    MSRP: 46,875
    Cap Cost: 42,792
    Down Payment: 1100 (includes first month payment)
    Tax: 6.5%
    Monthly payment: ~$519 (exluding tax)
    Montly payment: $555.83 (including tax)
    Residual: 66%
    12K miles a year

    I am still trying to figure out the MF. As I posed above, .0010, seems to high, because when I run it that MF, I end up with a $604

    Hi Carman. I have used your posts multiple times to assist in leasing. Thanks for all your work.

    Quick question. Is there a website where average Joe's can look up lease program rates for Infiniti, Acura, Audi, etc...without having to constantly bug you?

    With respect,

  • Hi. I'm in the process of purchasing an FX35 w/touring, cargo, hands free packages. I was quoted a price of $575/mo for 39 months. Here are the details:
    mf .00150
    residual 54%
    no cap cost reduction
    only out of pocket is 1st month, and tags
    15k miles/year
    Selling Price of $40467.62

    Am I getting a good deal or should I be asking for more? Any thoughts are appreciated.
  • aephemeaepheme Posts: 48
    That seems a little high. I got a quote the other day for:

    FX35 w/ Touring, Hands Free, Cross Bars, Splash Guards, and Carog Privacy for...

    1. MSRP = $42,425
    2. CapCost = $39,483
    3. Invoice = $38,878
    4. MF = 0.00026
    5. Residual = 67.00%
    6. Per Month = $533.56 inc. 6% sales tax

    For a 24 month, 12k per year lease.

    If you're keeping it for 39 months, you should be paying even less.
  • That's seems very high

    I just finalized my deal, which I described up. To recap, I am getting a FX35 2WD with tech, touring, sports, handsfree, cargo, splash guards for $555.83 (sales tax at 6.5% included) a month for 24 months at 15k miles per year. My down payment is $1100. Which includes the first month payment.

    My selling price is $42592 and MSRP is $46,875.

    Also, I remember with a 39month lease, you more than likely have to replace the tires, break pads, and the 30k miles service, which I hear is quite expensive. When you factor those costs in, the 39 month gets to be quite a bit more expensive.

    Also, if I made down payment just the 1st month payment, then my monthly payment would be ~$593 (including tax)

    Just my opinion.
  • Thanks everyone for your insight. This lease negotiating is like walking in the dark. It sounds like the payments should be much less than the $575, what they should be is the million dollar question...

    Any further ideas are welcome. Thanks again.
