    AWD. Is it a good deal? Anything else I should ask/bargain?

    The only way to truly judge this deal is to know msrp and your actual cost. Then post what the money factor and residual numbers are. The big factor is the negotiated price. My figures show $512 per month. Mf -- .00054 res 49% --- msrp 47k sell 43k 39 months but you should get a better price with loyalty bonus. I would shoot for 40k sale and see what happens. That would bring the payment to $467. Of course if it has the premium pack as well then it's more. The infinity promotion is 539 for 39 -- 4k down. You should do better than that.
  • Hello, I was able to get a good deal from a corporate discount and I am going to the dealer this week but trying to get a deal but don't want to be cheated. Thank you for any help you can give me it is really appreciated. Looking for 15k miles a year and the price $43,139 is the invoice pricing of course not including taxes and fees so I'm wondering what the lease monthly on that would be. Not sure of the other numbers but looking for a estimate. Thanks in advance.
  • Hey Car Man,
    I'm interested in leasing an Infiniti FX35. The deal given to me on a new 2009 with AWD, Premium, Navigation with MSRP of $50,220 is sales price of $46,625, payment of $661/month for 39 months, 15,000 miles/year with $1,000 OOP including 1st month payment.

    I live in VA so 3% sales tax payable upfront is rolled into cap cost. Do you think this is a good deal?

  • Just purchased a FX35 AWD with Premium, Navigation, splash guards, cargo organizer, wheel locks + first year of basic servicing included (oil changes, tire rotation). $40600 + tax, title. MSRP with options was near $51k. Bought from local NY-area dealer (went to them last) as I wanted to buy local (<5 miles from my home).
  • Hey Carman. My current 08 lease is up in om 12/7 month, and Im looking to buy or maybe lease the 2010. Infiniti has lease/purchase deals for the 09 which they've been running since July, but not the 10 yet. My question is, as a rule of thumb, will Infiniti offer some kind of incentive program at the end of the year on the new models, and if so, will they do it in November or wait till December? I got my 08 on 11/30/07 and they were running specials on the new models so I was wondering if this was something that was a regular occurance.
  • I am considering leasing an FX35 FWD if anyone received a really good deal in the Los Angeles area? I am trying to figure what the going money factors are right now and what the cost of the car should be and the residual value. I have a little time as my lease on my BMW is up in Feb. Should I get the 2009 now or wait until the 2010 comes out? If anyone can help that would be great. Thanks
  • Hey nickerbokor. OK, so if I have this right, you are considering leasing a 2009 Infiniti FX35 AWD that has an MSRP of $50,032 and a selling price of $43,139 for 42 months with 15,000 miles per year.

    Let's crunch some numbers and see what we come up with. According to my calculations, the lease outlined above would have a zero down, pre-tax monthly payment of around $520.

  • Hi two50man. The FX35 that you described probably has a spread of a little over $4,000 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. That probably puts the selling price that you were quoted at $400 to $500 over invoice. As long as you're not a loyal Infiniti customer who qualifies for the $2,000 loyalty cash that is currently available on this model, this is a very good deal.

    Just make sure that the dealer uses Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor of .00038 (for this trim level and term) to calculate your payment and you're in business.

  • Hey cassy1028. Infiniti already has a decent level of support on the 2010 FX. Through the end of the year, it is offering 0.0% to 3.9% financing or $4,000 dealer cash or a special lease program on the '10 FX35.

    As I said, these offers are scheduled to run through the end of the year. I don't anticipate Infiniti making any significant revisions to them in December, but one never knows for certain what an automaker will do.

  • Hi smithmad. The 2010 FX should already be at dealers. If I was in the market for an FX35 right now, I would comparison shop with several dealers and shoot for a selling price that's as close to dealer invoice as possible. You can look up the exact invoice price for the model that you want over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of this site.

    As far as the FX's lease program goes, here's some sample numbers for you. Let me know if you are interested in a different trim level, term, or mileage allowance.

    Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 FX35 FWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00030 and 47%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2010 model are .00171 and 52%, respectively.

  • Thanks Car_Man,

    I am trying to determine if there is a benefit in getting the 2010 vs 2009. Its a new car regardless. I am pretty simple, I will end up with probably the FX35 FWD with Premium pacakge. Thanks for the information as it is a good starting point for me. I still have 2 1/2 months before my current lease is up so I am trying to get an early start. Any other advise would be appreciated.
  • 4K on the 2010s. Wow. I hadn't heard that. It's been hard enough to find confirmation of the 5K on the 09s, but I haven't seen anything about 10s. That makes shopping the next month much more interesting….

    My dealer quoted me the following for a 2009 FX35 RWD with premium package, mudguards, cargo. This includes $2000 loyalty, 7% taxes rolled in. first payment due at signing. Carman, let me know if this looks good.

    2009 FX35 Premium, Cargo, SplashGuards

    36 month lease $579. 15K miles $2,000. lease loyalty
    39 month lease $552. 15K miles $2,000. lease loyalty
    Based on 7% sales tax 15k miles, 1st payment due at signing, -0- Security Deposit, 700+ Credit Score
  • Hi Carman:

    I am in the market for a lease on a 2009 or 2010 FX35 with Nav and Premium (My guess is that the MSRP would be in the $50,000 range), 36 months, 17,000 miles/yr, Philadelphia area. What price range of monthly lease payments should I shoot for when I go to the dealer? Thanks!
  • Hello Carman, I got a deal on a FX35 RWD 2010 FX35 with Premium package. MSRP $45,980; sales price $39,815 with 15k miles per year. Out of pocket $1240. Total payment without tax is $551. Factors is 0.00182 and residual is 51%. Is this a good deal? They say this special ends on the 30th of the month. Please let me know if you think it is good or I can do better. I am in Los Angeles.

    I got a quote for $559 for 2009 FX 35 RWD with premium pkg for 39 months with taxes rolled in (7%), no sec deposit, 15K a mile. first month payment is the only out of pocket. This includes $2K lease loyalty, no security deposit. I am a current Infiniti customer. I do not remember the residual or money factor.
  • Hi CarMan, I'm interested in a 2009 or 2010 fx35 premium w/ deluxe touring pkg. I have access to VPP pricing which is 1.9% below invoice. Can you give me the money factor, residual and lease payments on 36 and 39 months on a 20K mi lease? I'm in a current infiniti lease and can take advantage of the current loyalty incentive as well. Appreciate the help!
  • Nice negotiating on price! Did you finance or lease and what are your payments?
  • Carman: Never mind, don't need you to answer as it's too late. The Infiniti dealers in West Chester, PA and Willow Grove, PA were offering lousy deals on both the 2009 and 2010's. They are very full of themselves and must be doing just fine in this economy. We went with a 2010 ML350 instead. Infiniti dealers around here are just fooling with people.

    I got an ad in the mail for a 39 month lease for $539 a month with $3,999 down, just exactly how far off are these numbers for what I should be able to get a lease for, I'm located in Clearwater, FL. Thanks in advance!
  • Hey,
    Just recently looked at a 2010 FX35 AWD with Premium, Deluxe and Navigation. MSRP was $52,855. Dealer told me he would take $3k off sticker. Residual was 53%, MF .00186 on a 39 month lease 12k/yr, $1500 down. I live in Pa, so tax was 9%. Payment I was quoted was $775/mth. Can anyone help me out here?
  • Cross-posting this from G37 lease forum. Want to hear some info from other folks that used MSD with IFS before and whether there were any issues getting it back afterwards. We are getting really close to suing these suckers. Thanks!

    We ended our G35 lease at the end of september and are waiting to get back our MSD (multiple security deposit) from the IFS. So far we were unsuccessful. Every time we call another representative tells us the account is going to be released and the check will be sent in 3-5 bus days (which is obviously not true, as it has been going on for almost 2 months now). Getting a manager on the phone is simply impossible. We are starting to think of suing the IFS.
    Question: did anyone else have these problems or are people generally getting their MSDs back expeditiously.
    For any new leasers out there considering this option - something to be aware of...
  • I got the same offer in an email from a salesman, but with 3k down. It's for a 2010 with premium and navigation.
  • trying to figure out a reasonable payment for a 3 year 12,000 mile lease,

    MSRP $45,900
    negotiated price $42,500 (what's a good number to shoot for, I was thinking between $3,000 and $4,000 below MSRP)
    Residual 52%
    Money factor .00235 (I thought this was set at .00171, will they be willing to bend with this number or is it set?)

    Any help or feedback would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
  • The Infiniti web site lists that lease offer for 09s only (3999 down, 539/39mos.) Dealerships must have some flexibility b/c the salesman who contacted me said 3k down, same terms, on 10.
  • Hobber, I've been looking and trying to figure out payments myself, I'm not sure if this is accurate or not, so maybe somebody that knows can help out. The way I think you do it is.

    you take your sales price which is $49,855 - $1,500 down = $48,355 you subtract that from your residual value (MSRP x 53%) $52,855 x .53 = $28,013.15 divided by lease term (39), so the formula should be $48,355 - $28,013 = $20,342 divvided by 39 = $521.59, this is your Depreciation price

    then you take your sales price $48,355 and add your Residual value $28,013.15 and mulitply by your money factor .00186, so the formula would be $48,355 + $28,013.15 = $76,368.15 X .00186 = $142.04, this is your finance price.

    you add your depreciation price and finance price $521.59 + $142.04 = $663.63 should be your price, with 9% tax it's an extra $59.73 for a total of $723.36

    I don't know if this is how you do it or not, been searching the web and think it might be, I'm sure I'm off but I don't think it's that much. Let me add that $1,500 just might cover your DMV and other fee's, so you might not factor that in, in that case your sales price would be $49,855. Anybody know if this is right?

    Looking for AMEX Teamup
  • Hi Bob. Let's work up a sample lease payment on the truck that you're interested in and see what we come up with. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2010 Infiniti FX35 AWD that has an MSRP of $49,515 and a selling price of $46,510 ($1,000 over may be able to do better than that) through Infiniti Financial Services right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $689.

    I worked up a payment for a 15,000 mile per year lease because that is the highest mileage allowance that IFS publishes residual values for. If you need to drive more than this, you will have to purchase additional miles on a per-mile basis. It is less expensive to do so at lease signing than to pay an excess mileage penalty at lease-end.

    If you are eligible for the $2,000 loyalty cash that is available on this model or are able to negotiate a lower selling price, naturally your monthly payment would be lower than the one that I came up with.

  • Hi smithmad. Yes, this does indeed look like a good deal. You negotiated one heck of a discount on this truck.
