  • No problem, LASpurs. Stop back in a few months when you're in the market for a new vehicle and let us know how everything is going.

  • Hey nyalgaidin. Infiniti's February lease program and cash incentives for the 2009 FX35 are exactly the same as they were in January.

  • Hi billri. Here's the info that you're looking for. Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 FX35 AWD with 10,000 miles per year are .00111 and 54%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00109 and 53%.

    The 42 month numbers are .00108 and 51%.

    The 48 month numbers are .00103 and 45%.

  • Sorry - Posted this in the wrong forum: Here is a lease deal I was quoted at Santa Monica Infiniti:

    2009 FX AWD w/ Premium, Navigation and Deluxe touring - MSRP: $51,435

    They will lease the vehicle to me at invoice price $47,045 for 39 months. $1,725.00 due at signing. Monthly payment of $537.00 + tax. (totals $581.00 in my county)

    I am not bothering to list the money factor, residual, etc. because they are using the latest programs offered by Infiniti which are listed here in a previous post. This includes the $2,000 customer loyalty discount since I am a current Infiniti lease holder.

    Thoughts?
  • Hello,

    Does anyone know the current lease rates for both the FX35 (rwd) and FX50?

    24 months
    15k miles/year

    Thanks! :shades:
  • Thanks Car man - I ended up with the FX 35 premium/nav & w/o the Deluxe Touring & bigger tires. It turns out that the smaller standard tires make for MUCH softer ride & dealer says better in the snow. Unfortunately, they had to get it at the port, as most now come with Touring pkg. But ended up, with loyalty $2,000, leasing & putting another $2,000 down for everything (including last car $595 acquisition) , 10K 42 months $525.45 + tax. $46,000 base.
  • Billri: Did you read my post (two up)? 39 month lease, less down, more car (includes deluxe) and same payment.

    Which dealer did you go through?
  • Hi Jayrandall - Thanks and saw your posting, but went for this for a few reasons. I actually could have had your same deal if I took an instock unit with Deluxe Touring, but the ride is much better with smaller tires & better in snow, so had to get one from the boat (new price). But actually our difference in down payment was $250, but over 39 months, you paid almost $400 more. The car is for the wife, who drives much less that 10K & doesn't like to turn them in often, so this worked the best. I got it at Inskip in Rhode Island. Also learned that Infinity is giving higher loyalty allowances on West coast than $2K here - maybe less freight, so if you're from CA, we're not comparable.
    Nice guy at dealer, if anyone wants to know, send me your email address.
  • BillRi:

    How am I paying $400 more than you? I have the same payment, and less months on my deal. And a smaller down payment.

    How are you arriving at $400?

    And yes, my deal is on the west coast with Santa Monica Infiniti.
  • Hi Jayrandall: Sorry if I misled you on my response, because technically you got a better deal with the Deluxe Touring included, and as I've learned the deals are better out West. And I did see your posting before my final negotiations. The dealer actually had the white color we wanted in stock with the DT/NAV with old price, and I could have had it slightly less for $1,600 down & $535 for 39 months. But we really wanted it with Nav, but without DT because of the better ride, so dealer had to get it at the port with the new pricing Infinity just started last month (about $1,000 more).

    My comment on $400 was that my monthly payment is $525, $12 less than yours, so during that 39 months that's about $468 verses the extra $250 I put down, and then I have 3 more payments, which is what we wanted.
  • Hi rkdiddy. Here's the information that you're looking for. Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Infiniti FX35 RWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00107 and 51%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an '09 FX50 are .00135 and 49%.

    The reason that I provided you with the numbers for 36 month leases of these trucks instead of 24 month leases is that Infiniti is no longer providing support on any two year leases. As a result, its money factor for 24 months is an atrocious .00315.

    Carman:
    I've been shopping for a new FX35 AWD and all the dealers are pushing 39 as opposed to 36 month leases. They claim the payments are vastly different between the two, but this makes no sense to me given that the money factors are .00111 and .00109, respectively. Is there really such a difference in payments when the money factors are so close or is there something else behind this push for a 39 month lease? Thanks.

    I will lease a 2009 FX35, and have 2 questions:

    1) What is the loyalty discount amount for California?

    2) When I return my older FX35 (lease return), and lease a 2009 model, am I also entitled to another $500 discount? Or is this $500 only for excess wear/tear or excess mileage on the returned vehicle?
  • navboynavboy Posts: 32
    For a 2009 FX35, is there any difference is residual values for a 36 or 39 month lease? Any difference in money factors? (I will be leasing at 15k miles/year).
    Thanks!
  • archmodarchmod Posts: 7
    I am looking at leasing an FX35 AWD for 39 months at 15K miles per year. Are the residuals and money factors the same as February? Will the $2000 customer loyalty still be available?

    Also, I am considering a RWD. Are the numbers different from the AWD.

    Thanks

    You sir are a FOOL!! If you go to a reputable dealer & tell the truth about what you need, they will not lie.
    Dealers are now scrutinized more than any other business group because of people like you. If you request ALL the info on the internet, the dealer either gives you the correct information or they don't. If worked at a car store & caught you recording me, I would throw you out of the dealership.

    Carman:

    Do you have the March program numbers for an FX35 AWD, 15K miles, at 36 and 39 months? Please include money factor, residual and incentives/rebates, if any. Thanks.
  • All car dealers are CROOKS! One has to do whatever it takes to avoid being screwed by the dealerships. If it takes a voice recorder - so be it.
  • uffllaauffllaa Posts: 11
    OK Carman - So what do you think about this deal?

    09 FX35 RWD w/ premium package - no navi or touring
    39 months - 15k miles
    sticker $44,310
    cap at $42,310
    money factor .00089
    residual 49%

    payment $580/mo plus tax or a total of $614.00
    $2,495.00 out of pocket
    however, because im currently leasing another infiniti thru infiniti finance
    i'm also entitled to the $2k loyalty which is being offered,
    which would reduce my total out of pocket to $495.00 (includes first payment
    and inceptions...)

    your thoughts?
  • Hey, I don't think you need Carman to tell you that your deal is not very good for an FX w/out AWD and NAV.

    See my post above. I have a lower payment and more car over 39 months. And only $1,750 out of pocket with 2k loyalty applied.

    What dealer are you working with?

    Hello, I need help obtaining Infiniti's March Lease figures. Before the end of Mach, I will be getting a RWD 2009 FX35 with Premium & Navigation. Where can I obtain these numbers, money factor, residual value? Also, how much can dealers usually negotiate the purchase price down???

    I need the money factor and residual value numbers for the 36, 39 and 42 month leases with mileage of 10K & 12K, no down payment. Where can I obtain this information.

    I got a quote from Warren Henry for $650 approximately, for a 39 month lease with 10K mileage. I think it is a bit excessive since i saw that the money factor in Feb for a 39 month lease with 15K was 0.00109% and residual of 51%. :mad:

    Can someone please help?

    I recently got an FX 35 with RWD with 15,000 for 39 months for 620 per month. I had out of pocket of approx. 2,000 which was mostly tag (750 and other BS charges such as doc fees etc). I would go in with an offer of invoice minus the 2,000 if you are an exitising leasee and work from there. You should be able to get your payment at 600 or less with very ltittle or nothing down.
    By the way I love the big wheels and the ride is so much better than the 2005 I had previously.

  • uffllaauffllaa Posts: 11
    where was this? and what was your total out of pocket? thx
  • jxlxrjxlxr Posts: 54
    I am in NY.

    Out of pocket was approx. $3500 which inc. 8% tax, first month, bank fee, reg.
  • I think your $3,500 out of pocket was a bit high. But you didn't get the 2k loyalty, so you had to make it up somewhere.
  • jxlxrjxlxr Posts: 54
    Agreed. Since I was not eligible for the loyalty cash I had a higher out of pocket. Over 2000 was tax with bank fee and first month rounding out the majority of the rest.

    I looked at most high end brands and there aren't too many decent leases out there any more so no complaints.
  • So what color did you get? Interior and exterior?

    Hi hbo1ny. 39 month leases typically have slightly lower monthly payments than 36 month leases do. The main reason why this is the case is 39 month leases give lessees an additional three payments to spread out the large initial depreciation hit that new vehicles experience when they are driven off of the lot out over. Dealers don't really care how long you lease for, they are just trying to steer you towards the lowest monthly payment so that you are more likely to pull the trigger on a deal.
