2013 and earlier Nissan Murano Lease Questions



  • Hi mgoldstein. It's difficult to say what Nissan's November incentives will be like for this model. From what I have heard, its "Tent Sale" has been pretty effective in boosting the company's sales. As long as its inventory is at a manageable level, I don't anticipate Nissan making any enhancements to its November program. If I had to make an educated guess, I'd say that it will take a breather in Nov. and then crank up its support for one more push at the end of the year. Of course, it is difficult to say exactly what automakers will do with their future programs.

  • Was at a NJ dealer today. Wow, leases have gone up.

    For the 2010 LE model AWD RSP of $38,980 and 39 months lease with 12K miles they asked for $2000 down including inception fees and $620 per month - since there were "no manufacturer incentives". Residual was quoted as 49%. As I left they offered $595 per month. That would include 7% NJ taxes.

    Look like November will be a slow dealer month at those prices. Anway, I put out information requests to the 4 dealers in my local area.

    I can wait until March If I need to, so I will wait and see how the market develops, did enjoy driving the car though.
  • I agree. Nissan has overpriced the LE. And with a lease they lowered the residual so the msrp differential between an LE and a well-equipped SL, roughly $3500, is totally paid for in the lease term. Nissan has priced the LE with the assumption that at the end of the lease it will be value at no more than an SL.

    I ended up leasing an Acura MDX, arguably a better car (but with worse gas mileage). I posted my lease deal in the MDX Lease forum. The MDX lease was much less than the Murano LE.

    By the way, I did have a dealer who offered to sell me an SL-360 and he would parts order the actual LE wood inserts and have the body shop install the wood inserts, e.g. this is Nissan genuine parts, not an aftermarket wood trip applique. He was charging about $450 for this.

    Maybe you can help me out. My son's father in law died a couple of weeks ago. He was the sole signature on a new Nissan Murano lease. The vehicle is now 4 weeks old with 1500 miles on it.

    His wife can't get in the vehicle, too many memories. She thinks it's too big and expensive $359/month, and wants something smaller. We tried calling Nissan Leasing to find what the options are going forward. Since she is not ready to decide, we would not give up the name for fear of immediate cancellation, so Nissan wasn't very interested in talking to us. We tried the salesman and he just referred us to Nissan Leasing. The leasor is Nissan Leasing.

    According to the lease, death cancels the deal. What we need to know is:

    Will they allow her to assume the lease in her name?

    Will they allow her to trade the lease for something smaller, the Murano for a Rogue?

    What is the cost of termination going to be if the vehicle is returned to the lot? Not in exact dollars, but are the criteria? Miles driven x $.xx ? Difference between lease value and resale value? $0, just return the vehicle? Other ? Fees, etc. It's not clear in the written agreement.

    Go to the general mgr of the dealership and ask your question. That salesman didn't want to help you -- nothing in it for him. Go to the store and have a sit down. If that dealer is problematic go to another nissan dealer.
  • I'm sorry for your loss, runox. If I was in your situation, I would contact NMAC (or whatever bank this Murano is being leased through) directly to see what the options are. If the contract states that death cancels the deal then your son's mother-in-law should not have any trouble getting out of the lease. I'm not sure of the exact process that is involved in this sort of transaction, but NMAC should be able to walk you through it.

    I'm not sure if they will let her transfer the lease to her name, but it sounds as though she would like a smaller vehicle anyhow so she may just be better off walking away from this lease and leasing something new in a separate deal.

    I negotiated this deal tonite on a 2009 Murano "S" with Convenience package:

    MSRP: $30940
    Selling Price: $27743 (Includes $750 rebate, invoice is $28493)
    Dealer fees: $1145 (Includes $595 acquisition, $175 tags, 1st payment)
    Residual: 53% ($16398)
    Money Factor: .00147 (3.52%)
    Trade allowance: $8350
    Trade payoff: $7785 (+565 equity)
    $1000 Out of pocket to cover dealer fees.

    39 Month 12,000 mile lease for $344.40 per month before 9% sales tax. $375.40 with tax. The dealer did not have a glacier pearl (color) on his lot and this is what we wanted. I found one on a lot about 125 miles away that he is going to get it tomorrow or Wednesday. I should be signing the paperwork on Friday. I inquired about a disposition fee and he said Nissan's is $395. I going to try to have them stike this from the deal. An acquisition fee of $595 should be plenty.

    Also feel I did pretty good on the trade in with Nissan. Most dealers were only offering Kelly Blue Book value of $6500. Edmunds and NADA Valued it at $8300 and $8150 respectively. I also paid for a 24 access to Galves as I know many dealers here in PA use them when pricing trades. Sure, they would quote me kbb but I watched them look it up on Galves. A one day subcripiton ($4.95) was plenty and they valued the trade between $8100 for average and $9100 for retail ready. $8350 was good for me as it needs two new front tires.
  • Hi, can you tell me what the November money factor and residual percentages are for a 09 Murano SL AWD for 39 months and 15,000 miles a year?

  • Hi,

    Since we're now into December, can you tell me the December Money Factor and residual rates for a 2009 and 2010 Murano SL with 15,000 miles a year at 36-39 months?

  • lr3nylr3ny Posts: 3
    Can anyone share December MF / Residuals for the Murano? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    Hi Guys, can you please help me ASAP, i am supposed to be at my dealer on Thursday to sign and get a New 2010 Murano SL, but they gave me a quote of $528 per month, 46 month, and i have a Tear 2, my credit score not too best, but good, taxes are included in that $528, but there could be much more of my tear 2, and i will only find out how much more on thursday when the bank comes in to sign the deal, can you please tell me it this $528 is a good deal, or i can try to knock that price down. Its my first lease and i am a New York resident.
    thanks a lot
  • jayriderjayrider Posts: 3,602
    You lease thru Nissan not some bank. This deal looks like a bad dream. 46 months will leave you buying tires and out of warranty. how much do you expect to put down. Be ready for lots of surprises. What is the msrp of your murano and how much is the price you are paying after discount?
  • smarty666smarty666 Posts: 1,503
    that is a terrible lease offer there moryk; I'd suggest you either try another dealer or wait a while because the 2010 Murano's haven't been out that long and they probably, as your case proves, want an arm and a leg for them as with any new model year that has just come out

    also, leasing 101, you never lease longer than the factory warranty period, which for Nissan is 36 months; you definitely don't want to be leasing something you don't own for almost 10 months after the warranty period has ended; your just asking for trouble there and you definitely don't want to be putting any money into the vehicle, God for bid something went or broke, that you don't even own

    Also, at those insane prices they are quoting you, you could be in an EX35 or RDX for the same if not a little bit less money and for the same price you'll be in a luxury division and higher quality model which you obviously wouldn't be with the Murano

    I've read on the EX35 blogs that Infiniti is giving some insane deals on the 2009 EX's so you might want to check them out! best of luck to you
  • I was also hoping to get the December MF and residuals for a Murano SL for 36 months and for an LE at 36 months. Both with 15K / year. Thank you.

    Don't do it moryk!!! There are better offers out there and it sounds as if this dealership is taking advantage of you. Don't let them guilt you into anything. 46 months on a Murano at $528 is RIDICULOUS!!!

  • Does anyone know the money factor and residual for 2010 murano SL? I'm looking at 12000 mi, 39 months. How far off the sticker can I expect the dealer to come this time of year? I'm in Indianapolis and have been into the Nissan dealer three times this week. Have not seen a single customer other that a couple in the service department. Can I expect them to deal a little? Meanwhile, less than a block away, the VW people look to have had several buyers this week so I don't think the season/weather/economy are all to blame.
  • drumikdrumik Posts: 12
    2010 murano SL money factor is 0.00239 and residual value is 53% for 39 months

    One of the last offers that I got

    Selling price is 33,438 and msrp is 36775. I think I suppose to be able to do a little better (another 1000 off)

    As per dealer my monthly suppose to be 465 (I don't have any idea how did he calculate it)As per my calculation it suppose to be 480
    Anyway I'll try to get it for 440
  • Hi newcar47. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lase of a 2010 Murano SL AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00199 and 53%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00199 and 52%.

    Nissan isn't providing lease support on the 2009 Murano any longer, so if really you want to lease you would be better off going with a 2010 model.

  • Hi lr3ny. The Murano's lease program varies by trim level. I provided the details of the current program for one variant of this vehicle in my previous post. Let me know if you're interested in a different trim level and I'll gladly tell you if its current program is any different than the one that I mentioned.

    My latest offer from Dealer
    SL 2010 AWD
    MSRP 36775
    Sale price 33438
    36 months /12,000 miles
    484 plus taxes

    Total out of pocket:2700 (taxes, plus other fees)

    Is it a good deal?
  • That is not the greatest deal. Using that MSRP and that invoice you shouldn't be paying a penny more than $420/month plus taxes and inception fees
    Using MF of 0.00199
    and residual of 52%
  • drumikdrumik Posts: 12
    2700 it's not a downpayment. It's taxes and the rest of the fees
  • I just came back from a dealer. Got same deal as you...

    For Murano SL 2010 AWD with Tech Package, MSRP: $37,000
    Sale Price: $34,518
    39 month / 12K miles
    $489 per month.
    Total out of pocket: $2,300 for taxes/fees

    Money factor is like carman quoted .00199 and 53% residual.

    Is this a good deal? I'm getting desperate here, my Murano 06 Lease is almost up (Jan. 15) and I can't afford anything more than $420 a month :(
  • jayriderjayrider Posts: 3,602
    Dropping the tech package will help. Also--the murano isn't the only nice midsize suv available. Mazda, VW, Honda,Toyota come to mind. Get what you can afford.
  • Hey clueless_girl,

    What region are you in? If in the NY NJ email me at I htink I may be able ot talk to the dealer who broker a sweet deal. Remember I was looking for that sweet deal. I got it. Maybe you can be the next one that I can send his way.

    Happy hunting!!!
  • Currently leasing a 2007 Murano SL and lease ends June 2nd. Paying $499/month. Looking now so I'm not under the gun to make rash decision. Went to Nissan dealership in Nassau County, Long Island. Told them I'd want to lease a 2010 Murano SL, but for less than my current $499/month payment. Their first "offer" was $626/month. Comical. They finally offered $499/month, but I'm confident they can do better. Based on what I've read here and using the lease calculation for an earlier post, I think $450/month is reasonable.

    MSRP - $36,110
    Sale price - $31,922 (includes leather, premium and moonroof packages, $800 destination charge)
    Residual - $19,138
    Money Factor - 0.00199
    39 Months
    12,000 Miles

    My lease calculation is $429/month. They're sticking to $499/month. Think $450/month is reasonable, but would love to hear other thoughts.
  • jayriderjayrider Posts: 3,602
    There are bank fees and acquisition fees that need to be accounted for.
  • Hi cutco760, i'm in NY/NJ area. Your email address is not working. Please let me know how can I contact you.
  • True. I didn't factor that in. Ended up getting it for $482/month. Up-front money was $718 (1st month's payment + registration and dealer fees). All in all, I'm happy with the deal.
