Nissan Altima Lease Questions



  • While having my 1999 Altima serviced, inquired about leasing a 2006 Altima Special Edition. THe MSRP is $ 21,535, the sales price is $ 20,309 ($ 200 aBOVE INVOICE), the invoice is $ 21,109. mY MONTHLY PAYMENT FOR 39 MONTHS WOULD BE $ 305.00, WITH $ 1,600 DOWN. u ASKED FOR THE CAP ARATE AND WAS TOLD 3% INTEREST. tHE PURCHASE PRICE AT THE END OF THE LEASE WOULD BE $ 11,198. I realize that I just popped in as I was there for 2 hours waiting for my car to be serviced, BUT THIS LOOKS LIKE A TERRIBLE DEAL FROM A DEALER WHERE I PURCHASED MY 1999 ALTIMA AND MY 2000 SENTRA SE! Please tell me what I should be able to get the Altima for?
  • I dont think that dealer is telling you the real deal for the Month of November on 2006 Altimas.. THe money factor we got was .00025 which is .61% interest.yes...below 1%!!
    $500.00 cash back on the lease PLUS Nissan paid the sales tax on the car.

  • Here's the information that you're looking for, newt250. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Altima 3.5 SE with 15,000 miles per year are .00259 and 58%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an '07 Altima 3.5 SL are .00259 and 60%.

  • Hi berea1. If you are in an area that has a decent level of competition, you probably will be able to lease a 2006 Nissan Altima for slightly over dealer invoice minus the $500 lease cash that is currently available on it. Once the lease cash is subtracted it would bring you to around $300 under invoice. Once you have arrived at an attractive selling price, have the dealer that you are working with calculate your car's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor of .00025 and you're in business.

  • Hi chiku18. You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the car 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 car'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.

  • Greetings salmon06. A base 2007 Nissan Altima 3.5SL has a spread of $2,135 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice price. The discount that you were quoted for this car, $1,743 looks pretty good to me, but it wouldn't hurt to stop by the following discussion to see how much other community members have paid for similar vehicles lately: KarenS, "Nissan Altima: Prices Paid & Buying Experience" #, 3 Dec 2001 8:48 am. Make sure that the dealer that you are working with is using this car's 36 month buy rate lease money factor of .00259 and you're in business.

  • Hey Nick. The $500 lease cash and .00025 money factor that you have heard about are correct for the 2006 Nissan Altima. Use the lease cash to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost for your lease and have the dealer calculate your car's monthly payment using this money factor and you're in business.

  • Hi Car_man! What's the Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease Money Factor and Residual Value for(1) a 36-month lease of a 2007 Altima 2.5S and/or 2.5S w/SL package, 12,000 miles; and (2) a 39-month lease of a 2007 Altima 2.5S and/or 2.5S w/SL package, also 12,000 miles? Thanks so much!
  • Also would be interested to find out Money Factor and Residual Value for a 39 month lease of a 2007 Altima 3.5 SE with 12,000 miles.
  • Here is what i have:

    just to note... they are getting the car from queens, ny for me (380 mile trip). i located the car and asked them to dealer trade it.

    MSRP: 25155
    INV: 23259
    Term: 36 mo
    Mi: 15k
    Init CAP: 23500 - includes locate fee to get car
    + ACQ fee: 550
    + Title/Lic: 142.50
    + Tax 8% - 957.35
    - Rebate: 500
    Res: 53% - 13332.15
    MF: 0.00025
    0 down, taxes/fees financed
    first payment due at signing
    Payment: 318.75 x 36

    Good deal?? sounds like it to me...

    its an expensive car for me. i was looking at a 2.5s BUT the 3.5se seems like a better deal to me... also it probably will have better resale value. i know a car is not an investment but the SE seems like the better buy of the 2.
  • Hello,
    I leased a 06 altima 2.4 S w/ Special Edition package for $600 down and $230 a month for 42 months. The balance remaining at the end of the lease is around $10,500. Is this a good deal???

    Hi I was quoted the following lease by a local dealer
    2007 3.5 SL with Tech pkg, floor mat set & splash gaurd
    MSRP 31325
    Neg price 29115 (delear claims this is $215 over invoice)
    36 month 12K/yr
    $2000 down and $450/month

    I asked the dealer for the residual and MF and they quoted 59% and 0.0028

    This lease is in TX so price has to include full sales tax. Do you think I am getting a good deal. I think the MF is high and the residual is low. The dealer claims these are NMAC numbers.
  • Hello,
    I was told at my local nissan dealership that NISSAN was paying for sales tax this month, so get your best deal, then ask them on this. I would contact another dealer and confirm, then leave this for the end so they do not use it as a bargain tool.
    I got my lease and all with NO SALES TAX on my contract.

    BTW, I am in Texas as well.
  • enkurenkur Posts: 13
    Hmm.. that sounds very interesting and will make a very nice deal. The dealer did not mention anything about that. I basically ended up walking out as I wasnt satisfied with the financing.
    I think the dealer is trying to stick it to me because they made a mistake in the original quote they gave me over the internet (they applied some 2006 incentives to the 2007 price). So after much haggling they agreed to $215 over invoice. So I think thats why they dont want to give me any additional incentives.

    Where in Texas are you located. I am in Austin
  • Nick, I did a lease on a 2006 and in texas we have to pay the full sales tax up front on the cap cost. Same deal 500 cash back, money factor of .00025 PLUS nissan ate the 6.25% sales tax on the car..I was told in Nov and possible in Dec that Nissan was paying the sales tax on the leases.
  • i think this no sales tax deal comes from dealing with msrp... not invoice. if you work your best deal from invoice, you'll most likely end up paying sales tax because the dealer is not making much to begin with.
  • Hi carman, I really apprecaiate your services. This deal quoted by a Scottsdale AZ dealer seems awful high.

    MSRP - $32,715
    Invoice - $29,833
    Selling price - $31,800

    36 months / 12k miles per year

    They quoted a price of $584 per month with a money factor of .00274, and a residual of 60%, does this compute?

    Thanks in advance.
  • I spoke to the dealer again (Pinnacle Nissan) in Scottsdale, he says he's now selling the car at cost before the 25th, but the residual and money factor changed.

    MSRP - $32,715
    Invoice - $29,833
    Selling price - $29,833

    39 months / 12k miles per year

    They quoted a price of $488 per month with a money factor of .0031, and a residual of 58%. He dropped $96/mo pretty quick, is there more money on the table?
  • enkurenkur Posts: 13
    I think we are going to see some bad leases on 2007 models in terms of MF and residuals until the 2006 models are gone. I think these dealers want to get rid of their stock and upping the lease terms on 2007 so as to pressure you into a 2006. Atleast this was the impression from my dealer, as the finance guy kept coming back with deals on 2006 models and I kept telling him "I am not interested in 2006 model as it doesnt even look like the 2007"

    Not true..The no tax deal had nothing to do with the sticker..the car was a 2006 Altima SL..We got 1400 off the sticker from the dealer..500 Nissan Cash back for the lease..Another 500 cash back for the college grad program( my son) for a total of 2400 off the sticker. In texas we have to pay the total tax up front vs on the payment..But in this case Nissan did not charge the sales tax on the car and was not added to the cap cost..Nissan used a money factor of .00025 ..sticker $24,845..How could one pass on that deal. 1440 sales tax savings , 3,000 in interest savings..
  • First time out here so please bear with me. I have leased twice before but after reading the posts out here I realize how very little I know about leasing. Normally I just keep working the salesperson until I get the car into the price range (monthly payment) I want and then sign for the car. Now I am not sure if this is the right approach after reading through this site.

    Is there a set equation you can use to tell if you are actually getting a good deal when leasing? I have been offered a payment of $336 per month for an the car listed in my header, with an MSRP of $23585 for an 07 Altima with ABS, splash guards, and convenience plus package. The MSRP is the price he is working off of.

    I have a Honda lease from the same dealership with $1600 left on the lease. They say they will pay this off but I know that I will eat some if not most of what is left on the Honda lease. Is that monthly payment a good deal or should I wait until they start putting out incentive programs after the 1st of the year? I thought the $336 was not a bad lease price for 36 months at 15k miles per year. Now I am not so sure. Is this good deal or is there a better way to handle a lease? I am confused as hell after reading this site. Thank you.


    PS This is what I sarted with originally from this dealership:

    2007 ALTIMA 2.5 S 4DR AUTO
    CN2 Includes:
    - & Extenders
    - Dual Sun Visors w/Illuminated Vanity Mirrors
    - Steering Wheel-Mounted Audio Controls
    - Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel
    - Key Fob Operated Front Windows Down
    - Front Passenger Power Window w/One Touch Auto Up/Down
    - Automatic On/Off Headlights
    - 8-Way Power Driver's Seat
    - 16" Alloy Wheels (replaces std wheels)
    - Power Sliding Glass Moonroof w/Tilt Feature
    MSRP $23,505
    LIA DISC $ 1,400
    15,000 MILES PER YEAR.
  • What's LIA DISC $1,400? And does $336/month include taxes?
  • I have an Altima lease right now about to end in March (I got a good deal at $170/mo for 24 mo) -- really low miles at 17,000. It seems like there are some good deals to be had where I am in the Boston/RI markets. The dealer where I leased my current vehicle (Quirk) has a $159/mo no money down special. It probably includes a college grad discount for which I don't apply. I don't want really any other options on the "S" as this is a second vehicle I use just to travel to/from work. Should I expect to pay less or more if I turn the car back in 3 months early. Has anyone evr done a re-Nissan lease and used the coupons they send you? Thanks!

    After being quoted 460 440 420 and 380 for a base SE 3.5...
    I ended up with what i have posted below.

    07 Altima SE 3.5 SE Pemium package. MSRP 29550

    $400 month
    39 month lease/3yr
    0 down

    SOund about right?

    Now the guy that quoted me the 380 base is telling me 359 :cry: .

    What gives
  • $0 down....taxes/fees included or extra?
  • jrubjrub Posts: 12
    just picked it up tonight. 399 was the final. I had to put down 540 some odd dollars for first payment and plates. Taxes were included. Dealer told me he made 0 profit on the deal and wanted the unit cause the month end for them was Jan 2nd cause of new years.

    The dealer that quoted me the 359 was for the base SE. He came in lower than the 399 by a few bucks but I already put a deposit down with the other folks.
  • Hi Fellas,

    I am looking at a 2007 SL with every available option. Could you please provide me with the MF and Residual for 36 and 39 months and 12k miles? I live in the Cincinnati area.

    Thanks in advance,
