    Carman,

    Could you tell me the Residual and Money factor for the 2006 Infiniti FX35 AWD & FX45 for 24, 30, and 36 months with 15,000 miles per year?

    Thanks.

    I just came back from a dealer (Chicago) and I think I got a pretty good deal on an FX35 AWD w/ touring and sports package. $531/month plus $4500 due for 42 months with 15k miles.

    That seems to similar if not worse than what I was offered last month. Warm deal!

    Hi Car_Man,

    I've been offered the FX35 loaded, with touring, tech, sports, hands, mobile dvd, rails, splash for a 39 month 10,000 mile lease at 579 with zero down + tax and fees ($3000) at signing.

    The price for incorporating the taxes is 645 a month with 1200 due at signing. Would you consider these a good deal? I feel like it was too easy since I only spoke to him once. The MSRP was 49950 and the price for this lease is at invoice according the the dealer at 45,327.

    Thank You,

    Ethan

    Hi, I am looking at leasing a fx35 with touring and tech. Pfieffer infiniti in Mich gave me this quote and I was wondering if this is a good price.

    MSRP= 46,500
    Sale price= 43,374
    Residual = 52%, .00169,
    for 42 months, 15,000 miles
    $2000 at signing, payment of 589 incl tax.

    I have never leased before, so want to make sure I'm getting a good deal. Thanks for any help.

    Hi Car_Man,

    Local Dealer is advertising what looks like a sweet deal on an '06 FX35 AWD with Touring Package for 24 months, 12k per year. I can do the math, I'm just looking for the money factor and residual numbers.

    Thanks!

    Hi gp1054. $300 over invoice is a very good price for an Infiniti FX35. Just make sure that the dealer calculates your lease payment for it using Infiniti Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor. It is currently .00171 for 36 month leases of 2WD and .00158 for 36 month leases of AWD models.

    Here you go, taxd00d. If you were to lease a 2006 Infiniti FX35 AWD through Infiniti Financial Services right now for 24 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00181 and 67%. I have not seen this vehicle's 30 month lease program, but its 36 month, 15k numbers are .00158 and 56%. The numbers for otherwise identical leases of the '06 FX45 are .00123 / 64% and .00128 / 53%.

    Hi Ethan. Dealer invoice is a good price for this vehicle. Let's work up a lease payment on it using Infiniti's actual lease program to compare to the one that you were quoted. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2006 Infiniti FX35 AWD with an MSRP of $49,950 and a selling price of $45,327, through Infiniti Financial Services right now for 39 months with 10,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $572. That's pretty close to what you were quoted. If you like the vehicle, I don't see any reason not to go for this deal.

    Hello faithlee. The money factor that you were quoted is right in line with Infiniti's buy rate for this model. This is a good thing because it means that the dealer that you are working with is not trying to mark your vehicle's money factor up to add additional back-end profit to your deal. The other main profit center for leases is their selling prices. A base '06 FX35 AWD has a spread of a little over $3,100 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice prices. You were quoted a discount of $3,126 on yours, which sounds pretty good to me. If you like the vehicle, go for it.

    Here you go, scanty. If you were to lease a 2006 Infiniti FX35 AWD through Infiniti Financial Services right now for 24 months with 12,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00181 and 68%, respectively.

    Car_Man, can you please provide the June lease rates for the Infiniti FX35? Can you give the money factors and residuals for 36, 39, and 42 month contracts with 15K miles per year?

    Thanks,
    Stew
  • clif3clif3 Posts: 10
    Can you add the money factors and residuals for 24 and 48 month 15,000 mile leases to the above request? I am looking for the information for 24, 36, 39, 42 and 48 months for a 2006 FX 35 (2WD).
    Thanks!
  • scantyscanty Posts: 171
    I didn't pull the trigger last month, since the $0 down numbers they came up with for a 36/12 lease on an FX35 AWD with Touring and hands free was $572, tax included. I talked with my salesman on Friday, and he mentioned a new 12 month lease deal for $527, all included. He could not give me residual or MF numbers on that lease. Do you have any info on Infiniti's June program? Thanks a million.
  • atfryaratfryar Posts: 30
    Curious to know what the invoice and msrp are for adding Sirius to an FX35 without having the Tech package. Is there even a cost or are all FX35's "sirius ready"? Would like to make a deal today and this has come up as a negotiating point. Can't find anything on edmunds or the infiniti website about addint sirius...
    Any feedback is appreciated!
    Thanks

    The May FX sales were down 38.2% compared to last May.
    Year to date sales are off 24.2%.

    The 2007 FXs are expected mid September.

    I am hoping Infiniti gets agressive with the rates and possibly some dealer incentives for next month.
  • stew24stew24 Posts: 28
    I don't know where the Mods are on this board. I started to post the lease rates here as well, since we have to find this info elsewhere now.

    There is also a new 12 month lease deal offered as I've heard many talk about it, but haven't been able to nail down the specifics of it yet. Car_Man, .. any info?

    The 24 month/15K rate looks very appealing, and my calculation came up with only $1 difference in price between the 24 and 36 month rates when using a final cap reduction negotiated with my dealer.

    June is a quarter ending month. I wonder if this will have any affect on Infiniti's posted rates as opposed to what they will offer in July?

    I'm very close to making the move, but unsure if this is the time or if July will be better. :confuse:

    I just signed a 12 month 12K lease on a 2006 FX35. I was quoted a money factor of .000535 which is very low (I think) and a residual of 81%. When it was all said and I done got:
    2006 FX35 AWD
    Touring Package
    Sirius Sat
    Mud Flaps
    Cargo Protector (I think that's all)
    MSRP - 41,460
    Negotiated price - 38,800
    Zero down except first payment and registration, etc...
    For a monthly payment of 479.92 (which includes MA sales tax)

    Payments actually work out to be 499 but they screwed something up on my contract and the payment went down $20. Brings the negotiated price closer to 38,500.
  • stew24stew24 Posts: 28
    Wow, that sounds really appealing. One reservation though, ... The restyled 2008 FX won't likely be out by June of next year. So that means you'll have to get out, and wait for the '08 FX sometime later in the year, (Maybe even Jan. '08? ... The '03 FX had a Jan. '03 release I believe.), ... Re-commit to the one you have, or get into something else in the interim. Any thoughts?

    Hi:
    My salesman just offered me invoice + $650 before for an 06 FX35 AWD w/touring and hands-free options - I think should be less, maybe around invoice +/- a bit (the car has been on the lot only 3 weeks).

    Given current gas prices, the FX's decreased sales from 5/2005 to 5/2006, and the 07 coming out in 3-4 months, I'm thinking a rebate/incentive may be coming out within the next month or so. Should I wait? What are your thoughts on the price, rebate idea/etc? I posted in the leasing section b/c there's no action in any other thread.
    Regards,
    Deanie

    Picked it up last night so it looks like I'm committed! I love it though. Despite the relentless rain we're getting here in New England, it's a blast to drive.

    I'm hearing that Infiniti may let you extend your lease if you hint that you're waiting to get another Inifiniti (like an 08'). If that's the case, and I like the 08's, then maybe I can extend my current lease until the new style comes out. We'll see what happens. In the meantime, I'm thrilled with my FX and equally as thrilled to no longer be driving my Saab...

    Last thing, my residual went up with the installation of Sirius (?) thus the additional savings in payment.

    Here you go, Stew. If you were to lease a 2006 Infiniti FX35 AWD through Infiniti Financial Services right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00141 and 56%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease should be .00156 and 55%. the numbers for an otherwise identical 42 month lease should be .00210 and 52%.

    Hi clif3. If you were to lease a 2006 Infiniti FX35 2WD through IFS right now for 24 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00116 and 68%, respectively. The numbers for the other terms that you mentioned are as follows: .00154 / 56% for 36 months, .00185 / 55% for 39 months, .00219 / 53% for 42 months, and .00184 / 44% for 48 months.

    No problem, scanty. Infiniti is offering very attractive special 12 month leases on the 2006 FX35 AWD and G35 Coupe this month. I believe that the buy rate lease money factor and residual value associated with the FS's 12 month program are .00053 and 81% with 15,000 miles per year.

    Hi Deanie. Even if Infiniti does offer dealer cash on the FX35 in the next month or two it probably will not be compatible with special leases through Infiniti Financial Services. Infiniti will probably increase its lease money factor support on the '06 FX at some point, but the fact that vehicles residual values gradually fall as the model year progresses will offset at least some of any potential enhancement.

    Hi Lany. A base 2006 Infiniti FX35 AWD has a spread of a little over $3,100 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice prices. You are being given a discount of $2,660 on the model that you are interested in. This looks like a reasonable price to me. You may be able to get additional feedback on this price by visiting the following discussion: "Infiniti FX45 / FX35: Prices Paid & Buying Experience". Using the prices that you mentioned in your post, an MSRP of $40,058 and a selling price of $37,399, and Infiniti Financial Services' base lease program I estimate that this vehicle's 36 month, 12,000 mile per year, zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $490. With this lease, all you would have to pay at lease signing are your vehicle's first month's payment, a $500 security deposit, and IFS' $550 acquisition fee. If you aren't making any sort of cap cost reduction for the lease that you posted info about, the payment is fine. If you are, just make sure that the dealer you are working with is using IFS' buy rate lease money factor of .00141 to calculate your FX's payment.

    Picked up the '06 FX35 AWD with touring, hands free, mud flaps and cargo mat last week. Diamond Graphite with Willow interior. I love this car! What a joy to drive.

    I did a 39/12k lease. With EVERYTHING rolled in the lease (acquisition, license, registration, security deposit waived - my only OTD was my first payment) I'm at $547, including 7.075% tax.

    For comparison, the 12 month lease payment was $527. I knew I wouldn't be ready to do this all again in a year, so I took the longer term.

    I didn't buy anything in the F&I office, but there was something that sounded interesting. It was a wheel & tire insurance plan. Up front cost of ~$350 will pay for repairs to damaged tires and wheels. I know what it costs to repair or replace a wheel so the cost of the plan seemed pretty reasonable. I keep my insurance deductible at $500, and wouldn't make a claim for something minor like that anyway. Opinions?

    Thanks again to the Car_Man for your help. :)
