38,515Next find out how much this dealer is giving you for the A4 that you want to trade in. You can compare the price that they are willing to pay you for it to its approximate market value by looking it up in the following section of this site: Edmunds.com Used Car Appraiser. The difference between what the dealer is willing to give you for your car and how much you owe on it is how much equity, or negative equity you have in it. If your car is worth more than you owe, you would be better off having the dealer cut you a check for it rather than use the proceeds from it as a down payment on your lease. Consumers who make down payments on leased vehicles risk losing them if their vehicles are totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. If you owe more than the dealer is willing to give you for your car, you will either have to pay the difference out of your pocket at lease signing or roll it into the capitalized cost of your leased vehicle.

Anyhow, if you provide me with this truck's MSRP and selling price I would be happy to use Nissan's current lease program to estimate what its monthly payment should be for you.

38I also turned in my 03 Pathfinder that had 4 payments left and was 6272 miles over. Here are the numbers, please tell me how you think I did so I can be at peace with this.

MSRP $33,005

Down Payment $0 (just fees and first month)

They absorbed $2432 for my current lease

Lease payment $424 tax inclcuded

If it helps the math, they were going to do $379 tax included. zero down if they didnt absorb my current lease.

3839 months, 12k miles

2Details on the current residual value and money factor for the

2007 Pathfinder LE 4WD would be appreciated. Thanks.

2> for the 2007 Pathfinder LE 4WD would be appreciated.

Oh, and the dealer mentioned there may be a few 2006's left, so I could use the current residual value and money factor for the 2006 Pathfinder LE 4WD as well. Thanks again.

23838,515For now I can tell you that Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39 month lease of a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder LE 4WD with 15,000 miles per year are .00136 and 52%, respectively.

There's nothing wrong with trading in your current vehicle when leasing a new one, however it is in your best interest to have the dealer that you are working with cut you a check for your trade rather than using the proceeds from this deal as a down payment on your lease. I say this because consumers who make down payments on leased vehicles risk losing them if their vehicles are totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered.

38,515You can also use your vehicle's money factor and residual value to calculate its lease payment. The formula that you need to do so is outlined in the following article: Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

Check out the following informative article for more information on how leasing works: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car. Let me know if you have any other questions.

38,515According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD with an MSRP of $33,000 and a selling price of $31,000 through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. right now for 39 months with 12,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $397. The payment for an otherwise identical lease of a 2006 model with the same prices would be around $388.

As you can see, the $500 per month payment that you were quoted is way too high.

38,515A typical 2007 Pathfinder SE 4WD has a spread of $2,600 or so between its full MSRP and dealer invoice price. Once your $3,195 down payment is backed out, you are getting a discount of around $1,600. That means that you are probably at around $1,000 over dealer invoice or so. That's not a bad price, but I would not be surprised if you were able to beat it by a few hundred dollars by shopping around a little bit. Make sure to stop by the following discussion to see how much other community members have paid for similar cars lately: "Nissan Pathfinder: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor for a 39 month lease of a 2007 Pathfinder SE 4WD is .00119. Make sure that you negotiate the lowest possible selling price that you can on the truck that you want and then have the dealer that give it to you calculate your truck's lease payment using this money factor.
