    Does anyone know off hand what the Money Factor and Residual Value is for the SE?

    Thank You
  • I do and I would be happy to help you out, gkc3. You never mentioned how long you want to lease this truck for or how many miles per year you need to be able to drive it, so for now I will assume that we are talking about a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want info on the program for a different term or mileage allowance. If you were to lease a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00212 and 52%, respectively.

  • Car Man,

    What are the MF and Residuals for an 06 SE 4WD Pathfinder 36 months, 15k per year.

    Thanks!
  • Hi cgatto. If you were to lease a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00189 and 57%, respectively. This truck's 39 month lease program looks a little more attractive at .00147 and 56%, so you might want to go with that length lease instead.

    I went with the Lease, I just got a 2006 LE w/Navagation. I delt the truck down a few grand and worked the lease off that number. I am paying under $515 a month, I put nothing down (except my fist months payment) on a 39 month lease with 12K a year in miles. I felt it was a good deal, the first offer they gave me was almost $700 a month. I told them I was not crazy.

    We leased an ’05 SE 4WD back in March. This one had the comfort and premium packages ($31990 MSRP). We ended up with a 39 month, 15k/yr lease with only first payment due at signing. All other fees rolled into the lease. Monthly payment of $372 + tax.
  • Does anyone know what the current residual value is on a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder, as well as the current interest rate (money factor). I am trying to calculate my payment based on an invoice price of $29,538 with a 36 month, 12K a year lease. Thanks!
  • Hi-

    Could I get the Feb. '06 residuals and money factors on the AWD LE. Thanks!

    Nissan Pathfinder SE, 4x2, cloth
    MSRP: $27,220
    Lease Price: $25,000
    First Month Payment: $349 plus tax
    Money Factor: .00118
    Residual: 55%
    Estimated Monthly Payment: $349.97 plus tax

    Is this a good deal?
  • Could I get the money factor & residual on an SE, 36mo for 15,000 miles/year?

    Does the LE or SE-OR have any different numbers?

    thanks
  • Hi miller14. This truck's exact money factor and residual value vary by trim level, i.e. the numbers for a Pathfinder LE 2WD are different from the numbers for an SE 4WD, etc. I'd be happy to tell you what the numbers for the truck that you are considering are if you tell me exactly which Pathfinder you want.

  • Here you go, acm741. This truck's lease program varies depending upon how long you lease it for and how many miles per year you need to be able to drive it. For now, I will assume that you are interested in a 39 month lease (this is the most attractive term this month) with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different. If you were to lease a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. right now for the aforementioned terms, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00103 and 54%, respectively.

  • Hi bevo2. The selling price that you were quoted for the Pathfinder that you are interested in looks very attractive to me. You never mentioned how long this lease is or how many miles per year you are allowed to drive through it, but it appears to be a 39 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Correct me if I am wrong. If this is the case, the money factor and residual value that you were quoted are right on the money, assuming that your truck's security deposit is waived. I come up with a much lower lease payment than the one that you were quoted though. Using an MSRP of $27,220 and a selling price of $25,000, I come up with a 39 month, 15K, zero down, pre-tax monthly payment of around only $305.

  • Hello knockoff. If you were to lease a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD through NMAC right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00171 and 57%, respectively. You would be better off leasing this truck for 39 months. Its numbers for that term, .00103 and 56%, are more attractive than the 36 month numbers. The 39 / 15K numbers for an '06 Pathfinder LE 4WD and SE Off-Road 4WD are .00103 and 54%.

  • Car_man, can you please post the current lease rates and residuals for an '06 Pathfinder SE or S 2WD? 10k or 12k mi. Are there any other required fees at inception (security, etc.)?
  • eschuleeschule Posts: 3
    I have a 39 month lease on a 2003 Pathfinder LE that expires at the end of May. The price to purchase the car (including disposition fee) is $16,500. The car will have 39,000 miles on it and is in good condition. Is it worth buying it?

    Hi:

    I am being quoted for a
    2006 SE PATHFINDER
    LEATHER AND COMFORT PACKAGE

    Nothing down; $424/month with 52% residual. Is this a good lease? Can I get better?
  • pathstar1pathstar1 Posts: 1,015
    I'm told most lease buyouts are worth it, as there is between 10-15% built in value - that is, the buyout is low compared to "market value" by that amount.

    So the question is, do you want to own the vehicle?
  • Afternoon folks. I leased an 05 Pathy LE 4x4 last June for 15k miles/year/39mos. We have `12k miles on the vehicle at this time but mostly due to a handful of long road trips. I am now in discussions with my employer to take an assignment in Hong Kong and would like to break this lease. What are the most attractive possibilities for me to do this? I've been recommended to Swap-a-lease's website but have not yet engaged. Please advise soonest and thanks.
    Regards,
    srb

    My lease is up on my 2003 pathfinder, I am interested in leasing a 2006. I recently got quoted a lease price of $358.00 a month, for 39 months with $1474.00 down(se,4wd, avalanche white). This seems a little high to me. If anybody has any advice or info I would greatly appreciate it. I am in the northern new jersey area.

    Here you go, stetsonhatter. If you were to lease a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder SE 2WD through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp right now for 39 months with 12,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00086 and 55%, respectively. 39 months is the most attractive term for this truck right now. I don't believe that NMAC leases Nissans with less than 12,000 miles per year. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2006 Pathfinder S 2WD should be .00086 and 57%. At lease signing you will be required to pay your first month's lease payment, a security deposit equivalent to that payment rounded up to the nearest $25 or $50 increment, NMAC's $550 acquisition fee, and any required state taxes or fees.

    Hi eschule. You can find out approximately what your vehicle is worth by looking up its Edmunds.com True Market Value in the Used Vehicle Pricing section of this site. You also may be able to find out by visiting the following discussion: "Real-World Trade-In Values".

    Greetings mkftx. You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the truck that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing this truck's selling price in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion on this deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

    Hi srbarnes4ever. Congratulations on your interesting assignment. I am sorry to say that it is usually fairly expensive to get out of leases well before their scheduled end dates. In order to do so, you need to purchase the vehicle that you are currently leasing from the bank that you are leasing it through. It often turns out that it costs more to do so than your vehicle is worth on the open market. Furthermore, many banks expect consumers who end their leases early to still make all, or at least the depreciation portion of their remaining lease payments. As you can see, this can get very expensive.

    You can determine approximately how much it will cost you to get out of your current lease by comparing its purchase price to its value on the open market at this time. You should place a call to the bank that you are leasing your vehicle through to find out its exact price. Once you know exactly how much money it is going to cost you to buy your leased vehicle you need to compare it to its current value on the open market. You can find out approximately what your vehicle is worth by looking up its Edmunds.com True Market Value in the Used Vehicle Pricing section of this site. You also may want to stop by the following discussion: "Real-World Trade-In Values". Don't forget to check to see if you are still on the hook for your remaining lease payments. The difference between your leased vehicle's current value and how much it will cost you to buy it plus any remaining lease payments that you are obligated to pay will equal the cost of getting out of your lease right now.

    Your best bet would be to find someone who is willing to assume your lease. The Swap-A-Lease site that you mentioned is a good place to look for consumers who might be willing to assume your truck. The problem is that unless you got an incredible deal on it, consumers might now be willing to assume your lease when they could lease a brand new truck for a similar payment. Lessees often find that it is necessary to sweeten their deals by offering the individual who take their lease over money to do so.

    The only information I was given was the MSRP(sticker price) which was $31,500. I was unaware that a price can be negotiated. I an totally confused in this situation, please help!
  • Hey there,
    Can you tell me if I should negotiate a price first prior to agreeing on a lease number? I have always just settled for the lease price per month....I am doing this all wrong? thanks dave

    I am looking to lease a 2006 pathfinder se 4x4 with premium package, leather seats, sunroof deflector and carpeted mats with an MSRP of $34,265.00. I want either a 36 or 39 month lease ( 15k miles/year) looking to put down $3000. If anyone could tell me what i should be looking for as a good monthly payment it would be appreciated greatly, thanks in advance...
  • rmlinnrmlinn Posts: 21
    I am looking at a Pathfinder LE for 36 months/12K per year. MSRP is 33500 plus 605 dest charge. There is currently 500 customer cash. Invoice is 30982 so I am shooting for a selling price of 31500 inclusive of the dest charge and customer cash. I am in south Florida. Can you give me the money factor/residual on this vehicle and target for no money down lease? Thanks
