    I leased an EX35 RWD Journey for 24 months in March due to that great money factor. I thought they had raised it, but it looks like it's back. It's a great deal, so if you needed a nudge to get into an EX35, there you go...

    Hi puppyhead. Infiniti is providing lease support on the EX right now. Its lease program varies by term and mileage allowance. You never mentioned what either of these variables are in your post, so for now I will assume that you are interested in a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different. Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Infiniti EX35 AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00101 and 57%, respectively.

    I just got an EX35 AWD Journey lease offer:
    Premium Package
    Wood interior
    Roofrack, cargo protector, etc.
    10K miles/year
    for $388.78 a month for 24 months with $4057.51 TOTAL out of pocket--that INCLUDES about 2k downpayment. Is this any good? The salesguy i'm talking to says its incredible, of course...

    thanks in advance!

    Here is my deal in S.Fla., on Journey,rwd, premium pkg, nav pkg, cargo protection,splash guards. 24mo 12m miles TT&L plus first mo, total $ out of pocket $800.
    $41575 MSRP. Edmund invoice $38016
    paid $37103.25 Residual value 25310.25 Money factor.0001
    payment $492 plus FL 6% tax= $521

    Money factor is not misprint. Interest was $15 total for 24mo. (62 cents a month).
    It seems to me that one should put down as little as possible and finance as much as possible at that interest rate.

    Does anyone have all the numbers for May on the EX ... I'm now looking into this vehicle and may try to do something by the end of the month, but can't find rates for May anywhere!

    Thanks in advance ...

    Whats the Sale price, MSRP, MF and the Residual? Any bogus fees?
    Spending 4k at drive-off isn't exactly what most veteran lesses call a "good deal" or "incredible" according to the sales guy.
    When you play the monthly payment game with sales people, you lose.
    Use the following lease formula to calculate your lease.
    Generally, I recommend people to pay the 1st mo payment, acq/bank fee, doc fee, dmv and tire tax up front. Should be around $1300-$1400 due at signing. Then negotiate the sale price down as much as you can...invoice or less ideally.
    You can use an Excel Lease Calculator I made to figure out what your payments should be.

    This is the offer I get from the dealer in LA:

    EX35 Journey 2WD
    39 month lease
    $600 drive out
    $400/month + tax

    It sounds attractive when I was at the dealership but is it?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi wongtomm. In my opinion, the best way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to negotiate the selling price of the truck that you want first, and then have the dealer calculate your monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Without knowing that this EX's selling price is, you don't know how much of a discount you are being given on it. Find out what this number is. If it's not close to dealer invoice, do some additional negotiating with this dealer, or shop around with a few others.

    Once you have arrived at a selling price that you are happy with, have the dealer that quoted you it calculate your EX's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor. Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate for a 39 month lease of an '08 EX35 2WD (non-Journey) is .00056.

    I agree with finalizing the real purchase price and basing lease numbers from that price. I just picked up the following-
    EX35 Journey AWD
    Roof rack and cross bars
    Sticker price $44k
    24 month lease is $395
    Cap reduction pymt upfront was $1,500.
    Total upfront including cap reduction and all taxes (NY), DMV, etc was $3,500.

    Looks like you got a great deal. What was the sale price to get that low a payment. I looked at an EX over the weekend, but I'm not putting the $5k down to have low payments. I'd appreciate it, as well as probably a lot of others, if you can divulge some more info.
  • ksp205ksp205 Posts: 2
    with the lease rates so low, i think it's worth it to roll the upfront fees in to the lease term. there's really no point in paying $2k/$3k upfront when you can just roll it into the lease at a rate of 1.8%.

    here's the deal that we got at the end of last month:

    AWD Journey
    Luxe Style
    Roof Rails & Cross Rails
    Cargo Protector

    msrp - $46,275
    negotiated price - $41,095 (about $1k below invoice)
    fees (acquisition, doc, registration) - approx $1k

    39 month lease / 12k miles
    53% residual
    .00076 money factor
    $490/mo (including sales tax)
    no money upfront (except first month rent)

    i had a lease trade-in that basically offset the fees (i had some equity in it)

    First time poster here on the forum. Here's the lease I just signed

    AWD Journey, Premium, NAV, Roof Rails and Crossbars, Cargo Protector, Splash Guards
    39 mo/15k
    redisual = 52%
    money factor = .00082
    MSRP - 42,025
    Sale Price - 35,685 (about 3k below invoice)
    Tax = 1150
    Fees = 1000
    $2500 out of pocket includes 1st month lease
    $395 / month

    I thought it was a great deal, but seeing what everyone else on the board is getting, I guess it's pretty standard.

    I am getting out of my Acura MDX lease a couple months early. I have been looking at these mid-sized SUV's and I really liked the EX. The dealer just gave me this offer and I'd like to know if this is a good offer or should I expect them to do better.

    Total Depreciation: 12,306.18

    Depreciation: 512.76

    in my view, the dealer is about $2-$3k too high on your negotiated lease price. based on what other people are getting for similarly equipped cars, your base cap should be no higher than $37k. assuming your MF is within the range of what other folks have gotten (.00056 for 24mos/.00076 for 39mos), then knocking off that extra $2k-$3k should get you under $500/mo.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll have to go back and suggest that he need to do a little better. He told me that he is making a "ham sandwich" on the deal. The other thing is that this car is on their lot. It has Options I don't really want. I don't need the Wood trim and I think the splash guards are pretty well overpriiced for 4 small pieces of plastic! I'd rather have the Luxe pakage simply for the Xenon headlights. I was told that this is not a common option found...these lights are part of a more expensive (ie more commonly found) package. I also told him I needed to tow (less that 3500 lbs). But I saw nothing on the quote that lists anything about towing.

    I'll assume that the salesman does not really want to locate a vehicle that matches what I want. Probably has to do with hold back etc. But I really don;t want to be paying for options I don't care for...

    Does anyone know how thes cars are selling and if there are likely to be any programs in July? I had to stop by the Acura dealer to talk about my MDX. They wanted to me to lease another--got amazingly aggressive. Most of the dealers I have talked to (BMW, Toyota, Honda, Lexus)have confided that the SUV sales have dropped down to almost nothing. That is why I am wondering how the EX sales are doing....
