2318Could you please post Nissan's current residual and money factor on a 2006 Nissan Frontier King Cab SE 4x4 for 36 and 39 month leases?

Thanks for the help!

Philip

18I needed that residual for a 12k mile/year lease.

Thanks!

1I am 2 years into a 5 year lease. I was just given a company vehicle. Can I get out of my lease and if so, what would it cost me?

2) I am allowed 12k miles a year. If i go over, I have to pay. Will they pay me if I use less than the allowed 12k? I have used only 15k miles in 25 months.

38,514You can determine approximately how much it will cost you to get out of your current lease by comparing its purchase price to its value on the open market at this time. You should place a call to the bank that you are leasing your vehicle through to find out its exact price. Once you know exactly how much money it is going to cost you to buy your leased vehicle you need to compare it to its current value on the open market. You can find out approximately what your vehicle is worth by looking up its Edmunds.com True Market Value in the Used Vehicle Pricing section of this site. You also may want to stop by the following discussion: "Real-World Trade-In Values". Community members who hang out there are often kind enough to give others who give him an accurate description of their vehicles with his opinion on their value. Don't forget to check to see if you are still on the hook for your remaining lease payments. The difference between your leased vehicle's current value and how much it will cost you to buy it plus any remaining lease payments that you are obligated to pay will equal the cost of getting out of your lease right now. Unfortunately, I suspect that it is going to be fairly expensive to get out of your lease three years early. Banks do not provide refunds for unused mileage on leases.

5I am new to the leasing world, but I would consider myself somewhat educated on the subject.

I am condsidering leasing an 07 Frontier King Cab LE V6 4X4 Automatic. I got a great price from CarsDirect.com on their website.

Can you tell me the current lease rates for tier 1 credit and residuals? For a 24 or 26 month lease, 12K miles/year.

I am also considering an SE model (to lower the payments in the case I am unable to find a good deal) as well as comparing the Toyota Tacoma, which is a little higher.

Any information would be helpful. Thank you so much in advance!

38I know this is a little last minute, but I am going to stop by the Nissan dealer tomorrow morning. I am looking at a 2006 Frontier SE Kingcab 4X4 with auto and power package.

What is the money and residual for a 3yr/45,000 mile lease? And, is there a security deposit required?

Thanks,

Peter

38,514Here is the specific information that you are looking for about this truck's lease program. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2007 Nissan Frontier King Cab LE 4WD with 12,000 miles per year are .00146 and 60%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00182 and 52%.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

5I am waiting too see if I get a new job before I make any purchase/lease decisions, but I still want a frontier.. but I don't want to pay that high of a rate. I feel I shouldn't have to.

1Can anyone help: Is this a good deal:

Crew Cab 4x4 SE with value package

MSRP 24800

Selling price: 24000

Resid: 56%

39 months

Money Factor .00234

$991 total due at signing

$409 a month

This is a Cincinnati dealer

Thanks,

Darryl

38,514The money factor that you were quoted for this truck doesn't look quite right either. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate for a 39 month lease of a 2007 Frontier Crew Cab SE 4WD is only .00190 with the payment of a security deposit at lease signing and .00205 with the deposit waived.

Try to negotiate a lower selling price and make sure that the dealer you are working with uses NMAC's buy rate money factor to calculate your monthly payment.

1looking to lease 07 Frontier SE Crew 4x4 longbed automatic with SE value power package.

MSRP $27000.00

I need to know current money factor and Residual value. Also what would be a good sale price.

Thanks

mike

38,514I am not intimately familiar with what the market is like for the Frontier right now, but one can usually get most Nissan products for pretty close to dealer invoice plus the pickup truck segment is very competitive right now, so I would shoot for a price that's as close to invoice as possible. You may be able to get an idea of how much you will have to pay by visiting the following discussion and checking out how much other community members have paid for similar trucks lately: "Nissan Frontier: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

1Can you tell me what the latest lease numbers are for an '07 Frontier LE CC 4WD? I am looking at a unit with the short bed. It has a bed extender, tow hitch receiver, and mats as the only options. The MSRP is $28,770. The dealer is pushing a 39-month lease. I am looking at 12,000 miles per year. What is Nissan's current residual multiplier and money factor as we reach the end of the model year? Also, any idea when the '08 Frontiers will be out?

Thanks,

Bill

38,514I'm not sure exactly when the '08 Frontier will begin to arrive at dealers. Nissan just officially announced pricing for it during the last week of August, so if I had to make an educated guess I would say that it will begin to arrive within the next couple of weeks.

148It's decided...I'll trade in my 05 Camry for a Frontier! The idea to take the family on vacations by pulling a trailer sounds really cool. Kids are going to love it!!Besides, as a Shadow rider it could be useful to have this truck around as our second car.

Could you please provide the current money factor and residual from Nissan for a 07 Frontier Crew Cab NISMO 4X2 and current rebates for Florida (Zip 33326), for 36 or 39 months and 12K miles.

Thanks a lot for your help

148So, can you update the MF/Residual you have provided in the past? I may choose the SE or LE Crew Cab model instead, since it comes with the manual transmission and saves up to 4 miles to the gallon.

Thanks for your help,

148Thanks again for your hep,

29Saw the post on the SE above. I was quoted the same money factor, .00040, but the residual was 51% for 12,000 miles on a 39 month lease. Should the residual be a couple of points higher for this vehicle? Is there a difference in residual for moving to a 4X4 model? The base cap cost was $300 under invoice.

3Can you give me the money factor and residual on Nissan's current lease specials for the 2010 and 2011 Nissan Frontier CC SE/SV 4X4 with 15k miles?

Thanks!

Shawn

38,514The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2011 model (SV) are .00182 and 55%.

3Thanks for all your help on these forums. I'm shopping for two cars at a time, and your advice is really helpful.

I'm considering a Frontier CrewCab 4WD SL. Would the residuals and MF be the same as you posted for tonystark22's SV in February? Also, have the numbers changed for March, and are there any leasing incentives available (Nissan is offering $2500 cashback for purchase financing)?

Separately, what should I expect for an acquisition fee, and is it a legitimate fee or 100% dealer profit?

38,514The $2,500 consumer cash incentive that you mentioned is not compatible with the Frontier's special lease program.

NMAC charges a $595 acquisition fee on every vehicle that it leases. None of that money goes to the dealer.

2Thanks for all your input and questions. This has made the process much easier, and given me more clarity into the most optimal way to lease a truck. I would appreciate your input, because I am looking to lease a 2012 Frontier SL Crew Cab. I live in New Jersey, and I am in discussions with the Nissan Dealership in Springfield, NJ.

What are the residuals and Money Factor for this month?

What discount can I expect from the MSRP of $29,500? Is this the same as the Selling Price that is discussed on the "How to negotiate a good deal on a car lease" section?

What other costs can I expect to be included in the lease?

Can I expect a rebate?

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,

Darryl Rodgers

38,514NMAC's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Frontier SL Crew Cab 4WD with 15,000 miles per year are .00029 and 59%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

2Thanks for the response! At the very least, your input is extremely valuable, and I can triangulate it with the input I received from Edmund's Consumer Advice Editor.

I noticed you focused on the invoice price without mentioning the TMV. The Editor actually suggested using the TMV to determine the fair price for my zip code.

Does the TMV come into play when you evaluate a lease? Would you evaluate the TMV relative to the invoice price, and then go through the process of offering a selling price of $500 or so over dealer invoice/TMV (whichever is cheaper), minus the $525 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of this truck through NMAC?

Kind Regards,

Darryl

9Looking for current residuals and money factors for 2013 Frontier SL 4WD 12,000/yr, 36 mo. Since the 2013 model has not really hit dealers yet, could I realistically get a lease deal based upon invoice OR LESS on a 2012 (NY Metro).

Thanks!
