2013 and earlier Nissan Maxima Lease Questions



  • The sales tax in MD is 6%. Also 13% of 27,000 is 3,500 not 1,700. Don't know how you got 1,700 as 13%.

    Thanks for the heads up iburrows! That lease loyalty rebate is a significant amount! Hopefully, Nissan will come out with another great car within the next 3 years for me to stick with the brand.

    I must admit I got a pretty good deal. I forgot to mention that I still owed 6 months of lease payments on my Acura that I traded in. The value Herb Gordon offered me, combined with the lease sales tax credit, made it a wash!

    I sure do y2001. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39-month lease of a base 2012 Maxima SV with 12,000 miles per year are .00041 and 56%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2011 model are .00003 and 48%.

    Would anyone be able to set my expectation on what amount a dealer may offer me on trade in of 2011 Maxima SV Premium and Technology Package with about 10,000 miles on it. I currently lease it through NMCA and pay only 389.03 per month with 27 months to go and my buy out is 32,000. But my family is expanding and I am running out of room with the Maxima and need an SUV asap...But I know these dealer are going to try to rip me off. I did an appraisal through Edmonds and it came close to 30,000. I really don't know how close that is. If anyone has any advise or insight please respond by the way I am in Northern NJ.

    Put it on swapalease or leasetrader or both. With $2,000 incentive some one will gladly take your lease over. I cannot imagine any dealer offering you more than $30K for your car. Another option is to roll the negative equity into your new lease/loan, but try swapalease first.

    LOL! I wish a dealer would come close to 30 even 28 I went to a few dealers and they were in 23/25 range to me that is a joke. I looked into swaplease and they told me my car would go in a day ay that price but NMAC will still leave me on the lease, and I am not to comfortable being a joint with a stranger. If a dealer would give me 28,000 I would be happy I would eat the 4 grand pay 2 grand and roll 2 grand negative into the lease.

    Thanks for the info

  • Want to lease the sv maxima price about 40k need 15k miles 39 months have one lease payment remaining 469, want to put down 1500 what should I expect to pay in south Florida

    Hi jmcaleney,

    Was the $435 a sign and drive number, all out of pocket rolled in? Can you tell me where/what dealer? I may pick up a Maxima this or next month.

    Really appreciate it! :shades:

    I just leased a 2012 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV in Southern NJ. It has splash guards, monitor package, cold package, floor mats, trunk sub-floor organizer. Total sticker price $37,155. I traded in a 2009 Altima with a negative value of $514.00. I wasn't complaining about the negative value because it had $2,600 in damages and I owed $13,114. The numbers look like this 39 month lease, 12k miles a year, $1000 down payment, $1700 in rebates and non-cash credits, about $600 in fees. My payments are $420 a month. This was a spur of the moment deal in which I should have waited. The dealership I purchased from had just given me an awesome lease on a Frontier about 8 months ago so I trusted them, maybe I shouldn't have. If that was as bad of a deal as I think it was I won't be going back there in the future.
    Thanks for any advice.

    I'm in Atlanta and trying to lease a 2012 SV with Premium Pkg, Tech and Spoiler. 12k per year and 39 month. I received several purchase quotes the best being:

    MSRP $40,835.00

    Your Price $32,786.00

    When I asked them to give me leasing numbers, including residual, MF (probably tier 2 with not perfect credit) I have been told that the rebates don't apply to the cap cost. I've never heard of this. They are now trying trying to say that the Cap cost will be 36,400.

    Please advise

    Hi shapo. While it is correct that Nissan's normal consumer cash incentives are not compatible with its special lease program, Nissan does provide different special cash incentives on leases in some areas. Unfortunately there is no cash on leases of the '12 Maxima in your area right now...just as you were told.

    I'm in Boston, and have been looking at the Maxima 3.5 SV for a couple weeks now, and after reading previous posts and other internet sources, I thought I knew what a good deal was.

    MSRP: 39035
    Sell price: 36900
    Lease incentives: 1700
    Cap cost: 35200
    Residual value: 21078.90 (54%)
    Money factor: 0.000886
    Monthly: quite a bit lower because of trade equity

    They wouldn't go any lower, and while an okay deal, didn't seem like I was passing up much by walking. Was I wrong?

    Car_Man (and friends)

    Here's my deal...
    SV Prem and Tech
    MSRP - 41,280
    Sales near - 36k
    MF - .00017
    Residual - 54%
    39 month/12k
    $449/ month
    $999 at signing ($700 includes 1st payment and $299 MV)
    They are taking care of 3 months @$394/month for my current lease

    Looks like someone else just got the same car for $435 and without the $550 i'm giving (when you minus 1st payment).

    But i don't know if they also had $1200 of current lease being taken off their hands. Do my numbers add up? Good deal?

    I can't sign officially til next week because I am finishing up a refi. Please let me know!! And again much appreciation for all the help! :)

    Both the selling price and the money factor look good to me, td_inc. I personally don't see any reason not to go for it.

    Can anyone tell me what a good price to lease the 2012 Maxima Sv with tech?

    and the also the tech and prem package as well?

    thanks ive spent so many hours researching and i give up!!! lol
  • td_inctd_inc Posts: 17
    Hey Tuska788,

    I always wished people would give more upfront info or yes/no on pricing here so we could make this a quicker process. SO... I'll offer my two cents if it helps. I'm in NJ

    I just leased a 2012 Maxima SV with Prem + Tech (12k/yr)
    $449/month/39 months
    $500 + first month payment out of pocket. (The $500 covered MV and misc)
    They paid off $1200 in lease payments i owed on previous car.

    If i was bringing someone back to the dealer with me I'd look to get the same car but I'd want to pay $435-445 without giving that $500 upfront. I didnt haggle any further because of a couple factors. (I couldnt sign yet because of refi on my house but they took care of everything anyway, they were paying off my existing lease, and I was getting a $2000 rebate card from Nissan)

    If you want the name of dealer and salesman... send me a personal message and I'll provide.
