2013 and earlier Nissan Pathfinder Lease Questions

  • Here you go, Doug. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39 month lease of a 2006 Pathfinder SE 4WD with 15,000 miles per year are .00029 and 52%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2006 Pathfinder LE 4WD are .00029 and 50%. I posted these trucks' 39 month programs because they are MUCH more attractive than their 36 month programs. The $500 customer cash that Nissan is providing on the '06 Pathfinder right now is not compatible with NMAC's special lease program. However, Nissan is providing its dealers with $500 "sell down certificates" for remaining 2006 model year trucks that dealers have in inventory. Taking this $500 into account, you should be able to lease an '06 Pathfinder at pretty close to dealer invoice.

  • Hi twinbladesz. You can lease a Nissan for 60 months if you really want to, but that is really too long to lease for. A lot can happen during the course of a 60 month lease to make one want to get out of it early, which is usually very expensive to do. For example, you could just get sick of your vehicle, your family needs could change, your commute could change causing you to go way over your mileage allowance. Furthermore, Pathfinders only come standard with a 3 year / 36,000 basic warranty. If you lease one for 60 months and something that is not powertrain-related breaks you will have to pay out of your own pocket to have it fixed. One of the nice things about leasing for 36 to 39 months is that any problems that your vehicle has will be covered under warranty. Not to mention the fact that Nissan's money factors are much more attractive for 39 month terms than they are for 60 month terms.

  • Hi Kristy. There's nothing wrong with trading in your minivan when leasing a new vehicle. However, it is in your best interest to have the dealer that you are working with cut you a check for any equity that you have in it rather than using the proceeds from it as a down payment for your lease. I always advise consumers against making down payments on leased vehicles. The main reason why I do so is if your leased vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered during your lease, your down payment essentially disappears. If you really want to put the proceeds from your trade towards your lease, you would have to subtract the trade-in value that you are given for it from the selling price of your new vehicle.

    You can find out how lease payments are calculated by checking out the following articles: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment. I would be happy to estimate what your lease payment should be like on this truck right now. Nissan's most attractive lease program on it is currently 39 months. If you were to lease a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD with an MSRP of $36,545 and a selling price of $33,298 through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. right now for 39 months with 15,000 miles per year, its zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $401.

  • Hello wty. You never mentioned the selling price of the Pathfinder that you are interested in leasing. This is an important number 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 the price of the truck that you want to lease you don't know how good a price you are getting it for. The second reason is that one needs the selling price of a vehicle that they want to lease is that it is necessary to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to work up a sample lease payment on the truck that you are interested in for you if you let me know what its selling price is.

  • Unfortunately, wty, you are mistaken. Nissan is not providing thousands of dollars in incentives on the 2006 Pathfinder. It currently is only providing $500 customer cash on this truck. Not only that, but this cash is not compatible with its special lease program. The only other cash incentive that is available on the 2006 Pathfinder right now is the $500 "sell down" certificates that Nissan is giving its dealers on select leftover 2006 model trucks. With this dealer cash you should be able to negotiate a selling price that is right around dealer invoice if you are in an area that has a decent level of competition. Make sure to stop by the following discussion to see how much other community members have paid for this truck lately: "Nissan Pathfinder: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

  • Hi ec99. You can use the formula that is outlined in the following article to calculate your vehicle's lease payment: Calculate Your Own Lease Payment. The money factor that you were quoted for this truck is right in line with Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate for it. This is always a good thing. The selling price that you were quoted for this truck looks reasonable to me as well. It's dealer invoice is probably around $30,800 and change. If so, this means that the price that you were quoted is only a couple hundred dollars over invoice.

    Both of the main profit centers for dealers, this truck's money factor and selling price look good to me. Let me know if you need any help calculating its lease payment.

    Sitara24,
    I did not put any money down. Just the first months payment. It is a 39 month lease with 12,000 miles per year. Hope that helps,

    I got a lease on a 2006 LE 4WD with an MSRP of a little over 36,000 for $351.00 with tax. No money down. I think they are charging you too much. What is the negotiated price of the vehicle? Don't pay the full MSRP for a lease.

  • Was that for 15,000 miles a year/ 39 months
  • kristytkristyt Posts: 10
    I got 12,0000 miles per year at 39 months.

    wow, that deal is amazing. I was offered 394/month for 39 months, not including taxes..taxes up front..where did you get this deal?

    Last week I leased a Pathfinder SE with Comfort, Premium, and Leather for $370.00 per month for 39 months @ 15000 miles a year. The MSRP was over $34000 and I paid $2500 down which paid the tax, Aq fee, plates, and doc fee. I offered them $365 per month, which would have been invoice price, and they came back at $370. $300 over invoice seems fair to me.
  • My negotiated price for a Pathfinder SE with Comfort and Premium was 27800. MSRP was 31000. They added 499 dealers fee and 550 bank fee. It seems it is impossible to negotiate them out in S.Fl. With 0 down, my monthly payment is 350, tax included. I just paid first months and DMV fees upfront. This is for 39mo/12Kmi lease.

    I got the deal from a Joh Elway dealer in Colorado. They still have 30 Pathfinders on the lot. Maybe they really wanted to move them. Good luck. kristyt

    I live in NYC and got this offer for an 06' Pathfinder LE:

    MSRP: 36,625
    Residual: 51%
    Money Factor: .00029
    Monthly Payment: 406.70 (not inc. taxes)
    0 down, only taxes and 1st month due at signing: 1735.08
    12k Miles
    What do you guys think?
  • sasuke, what is the selling price? It looks like it is around 34000 including all fees. I do not know about others but I'd say it is a good deal.
  • sasukesasuke Posts: 77
    On the paper, it says "Purchase Option", if that's what selling price is, is 18,828.75
  • hi luis from northern nj. Trade in a audi a4 with 64k and i owe 14800 on the car, looking to lease a 06 pathfinder with comfort and leather pacakge.Im on the low six on my credit score. The deales was asking for high five on the payment on the lease with 39mo. lease. msrp 34659 on the pathfinder. what should i expect on a lease payment? thank u 4 ur time
  • I am looking into leasing an 06 Pathfinder LE w/ DVD system. Sticker price is around $38,882. I am having them buy out my lease on an 04 VW Touareg. The amount of the buyout is just under $22,000.
    They are quoting me a 39 month lease 12,000 miles with no money down, only 1st payment and license transfer at $598/mo. This seems high to me, what should I be aiming for? Thanks, jkdcrane
  • sasuke, 18,828.75 is the amount you can buy the car for at the end of the lease, if you decide you want to purchase the car. It includes a $150 purchase fee that Nissan charges. On the paper, is there an entry for gross capitalized cost or adjusted capitalized cost? Also, is this for a 4x2 LE with navigation?
  • sasukesasuke Posts: 77
    It's the 4x4 LE with No Nav..

    and no, there's no entry for those..just the MSRP, money factor and residual that I got.
  • sasuke, I have a feeling they are selling it $100 over invoice (at around $33950), including the bank fee and the DMV fees. I'd say it is a good deal.

    2006 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD
    FLOOR MATS & CARGO MAT (5-PIECE SET)
    SUNROOF WIND DEFLECTOR
    MSRP: $36,625
    INVOICE: $33,849
  • jkdcrane, the MRSP I get for 2006 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD w/DVD, floor mats & cargo mat, splash guards, and sunroof wind deflector is $38,365 (notice the difference with yours). The invoice is $35,345. The money factor and residual are .00029 and 50% for this model. Assuming they will sell it at invoice, with $0 down, I would expect a pre-tax monthly payment of $470.
  • sasukesasuke Posts: 77
    Thanks...I'm gonna try to get them to go from 406 to 390 a month..would make me feel better lol
  • sasukesasuke Posts: 77
    For the Pathfinder LE, Black on Black..I got a quote for $385 a month, 0 down except taxes, plates and NISSAN AQUISTION FEE? What is an aq fee? Can I get out of that you think?
  • sasuke, the acquisition fee of $550 is charged by Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. for doing the paperwork on every vehicle that it leases. I do not think dealers have the authority to waive this charge, but you can negotiate with them to cut the price that they are charging you by $550.
  • I am looking to lease a 2007 Pathfinder SE 4x2 with SE Comfort, SE Premium, and Leather Package. The dealer has given me a price of 27,999 + TTT. Taxes are 7% tag is $45. What can i expect to pay for a lease on this? My credit rating is a 630. I live in Georgia. Any assistance would be appreciated.
