  • In general, is December '06 a good time to lease a 2007 vehicle?

    Dear Host and members,

    Need your expertise...

    2006 FX-35 AWD / sport, hands free, touring, & tech pkgs

    Lease:

    $4000.00 total due at signing (includes everything - fees, 1st pmt, security deposit e.t.c)

    Pmt: $499.00 / month

    Term: 36 months

    Those are all the figures I got in a quote, my attempts to get more detailed info (numbers/figures) haven't been successful so far, but I expect to get them soon...

    Do you think you could give me an idea if this deal is ok to go for (maybe you could help me do some "reverse" calculations to see what real figures lie behind this offer and see if this offer is worth at all

    Please, help me and thank you!

  • What's the good/bad with this deal?

    Newbie, trying to determine the #'s on this deal. Sounds like from what everyone states, less $ up front or down is best, so this goes against that notion. But, is it still a good deal?

    2007 FX35 AWD Touring model 87417 subject to availability to IFS Tier I qualified lessees through Infiniti-Nissan LT. MSRP $41,300 includes destination charge. Net capitalized cost of $36,342 includes a $595 non-refundable acquisition fee. Retailer contribution may affect actual price set by retailer. Monthly payments total $10,056.00. At lease end, purchase for $28,910.00, plus $150 purchase option fee (except KS & WI), plus tax, or pay excess wear and tear plus $0.20 per mile for mileage over 12000 miles per year. Lessee is responsible for maintenance and repairs. See participating retailer for details. Offer ends 1/2/07.
  • This seems like a very good deal. I have been shopping around in south Florida and the best deal I've gotten is $2400 out the door, $494 including 6.5% tax per month for a 39 month lease, 15k miles per year. This is for a 2006 RWD with touring and hands free. Where are you located, and what are the miles per year on the lease? Also, what dealership offered you this? Thanks.
  • I am looking at an 07 FX35 2WD w/ sport, tech, etc. MSRP is $46,810. Looking at zero out pocket (not even drive off). Sales price $43,000 net, residual $26,213, 39 months, 15k/year, money factor .0166. Monthly payments $609 including tax. Please let me know your thoughts. seems pretty good to me.
  • Hi gprro1. What you were told is correct. I do not believe that Infiniti is offering 12 month leases on the 2007 FX35 or FX45 any longer. Here is the info on their 24 month lease programs that you're looking for. Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2007 Infiniti FX35 AWD with 15,,000 miles per year are .00168 and 69%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2007 FX45 are .00163 and 65%.

    The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. The dealer cash that Infiniti is currently providing on the FXs is not compatible with its special lease program, so I highly doubt that you will be able to negotiate a price that's below invoice on a lease of one, but I would not be surprised if you were able to get one for around $500 or so over 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 similar trucks lately: kirstie_h, "Infiniti FX45 / FX35: Prices Paid & Buying Experience" #, 1 Aug 2003 5:06 am.

  • Yes, devilsadvct33, Infiniti is still providing $2,000 dealer cash on the 2006 FX35. In addition to that dealer cash, Infiniti is providing dealers with a number of $500 dealer cash certificates that they can use to help them unload their remaining '06 FX35s. Dealers have the ability to choose how many certificates they use per deal, but one can assume that they will use around three, another $1,500 dealer cash, per deal. Unfortunately, Infiniti's dealer cash is not compatible with its special lease program.

  • Hello karabass. You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the FX 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 of this deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

  • Hello Mike. A base 2007 Infiniti FX35 AWD has a spread of around $3,200 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice price. You are being given a discount of $2,800 on the model that you want. This looks like a pretty good price to me. Let's use Infiniti's actual lease program to estimate what your monthly payment should be. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2007 Infiniti FX35 AWD that has an MSRP of $44,800 and a selling price of $42,000 through Infiniti Financial Services right now for 48 months with 12,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $540.

  • Hey devilsadvct33. This vehicle's lease program varies by term and mileage allowance. 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 2006 FX35 2WD with 15,000 miles per year are .00113 and 54%, respectively.

  • Greetings Gordon. The two most important numbers to focus on when negotiating a lease are your vehicle's selling price and the money factor that is being used to calculate its lease payment. These are the two main profit centers for dealers on leases. You never mentioned this truck's selling price. It is a very important number to look at before finalizing any lease. If you let me know what the selling price and MSRP are, I would be happy to share my thoughts on this deal with you.

  • Hi dcrotty527. This looks like Infiniti's advertised lease for the FX35. Like most manufacturers' advertised leases this is a decent deal, but it probably leaves a little meat on the bone so to speak. If you are in an area that has a decent level of competition, I personally would not be surprised if you were able to beat the selling price that was used to arrive at the advertised lease payment. Make sure to stop by the following discussion to see how low a price other community members have been able to negotiate on this model lately: "Infiniti FX45 / FX35: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

  • Hi golfgod2. The money factor that you were quoted for this vehicle is right in line with Infiniti Financial Services' buy rate for it (other than the fact that it's missing a "0" - it should be .00166). This is a good sign because it means that the dealer you are working with is not trying to mark your vehicle's money factor up to make additional back-end profit on your deal.

    Now let's take a look at this truck's selling price. The 2007 FX35 that you described has a spread of around $4,100 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice price. You are being given a $3,800 discount on it. This looks like a very good price for this model to me.

    The two main profit centers for dealers, your vehicle's selling price and its money factor, look great. If you like the truck, I personally don't see any reason not to pull the trigger on this deal.

    Dear CarMan,

    Thank you for your help. I now got all the figures…

    2006 FX-35 AWD, sport/touring/hands free/tech pkgs - loaded.
    Lease term: 36 months
    10,000 miles per year

    MSRP: $48,550.00
    Base price/selling: $42,553.15
    Residual: % 57
    Money factor: 0.00152
    Monthly usage tax: % 6.25

    Due at signing:
    + Tax on CAP cost reduction: $205.88
    + First payment: $499.99
    + Balance (for CAP reduction): $3,294.13
    Total: $4,000.00

    Gross CAP cost:
    + Selling/base price: $42,553.15
    + Title, license, Registr: $215.33
    + Acquisition: $595.00
    + Lojack-CAP: $795.00
    Total: $44,158.48

    Adjusted CAP cost: $40,864.35
    Depreciation: $13,190.85
    Rent charge: $3,750.03
    Monthly usage tax: $29.41
    Monthly pmt: $499.99

    I see they “ballooned” the gross CAP cost. All those
    “Lojack” fees!? e.t.c. seem to be too high (totaling $1605.33 !) Do you think I can and should try to negotiate the fees down?

    Wanted to know your overall opinion on this. Is there any other hidden “catch”? I know you recommend not to put down any $$$, but I am willing to do that in order to reduce the monthly pmt.

    I’ve also heard that the current 36 month lease 2007 FX-35 AWD money factor is actually 0.00121 and 60% residual (vs. 0.00152 / 57% I got). Does it mean that they marked the money factor up?

    I appreciate your evaluation of this offer
    And thank you! Gordon
  • Hey im a student in NY, and im trying to get a new car(FX35). is there any way possible to get an FX35 2007 for no more of $300/mo if there, how?
    I will appriciate your help.
  • Infiniti has $2000 toward "marketing support" for a current incentive. Can any of this be extracted from a dealers grip for a lease or is this just for purchases?
  • Please post current lease #'s for jan. if available or lead me to where I can get them. Thanks
  • Do you have MF and Residual for February? 39mth/12K

    Also, Edmunds states that there is 2000$ in Manufacturer Support. Does this apply to leases through Infiniti Financial services?

    Thanks
