Thanks for all the valuable info you supply to car buyers/lease shoppers. It is truly an extremely valuable service!

I'm looking for residual and MF number for the Pathfinder S 4WD in Chicago. 36 Months, 10k or 12k/year Also, do you know of any Factory to Dealer incentives?

Just spent many hours at a local dealer and they show the MF still at .00134 for May on the '13 Pathfinder SL. Are your numbers right or is the dealer trying to pull one over on me?

We are currently thinking about leasing a Platinum Premium 4WD (MSRP around $44,800) Am I correct that the May MF is at 0.00056 with the residual at 51%?

You're welcome profesrgeo1. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Pathfinder S 4WD with 12,000 miles per year in Chicago are .00056 and 59% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

The residual value for a lease with 10,000 miles per year would be 1% higher.

There is a $675 cash incentive on leases of this truck in your area right now.

Hey tfc803. The money factor for this truck is definitely .00056 for consumers who qualify for NMAC's top credit tier. If your credit is in good shape and the dealer tries to charge you anything higher than that then they are trying to mark your vehicle's money factor up to add additional hidden back-end profit to your deal that shouldn't be necessary on this model.

Hello Car_Man, can you help me out, I am a little confused on the MF/Residuals on the Pathfinder S 4x4 model. I saw you posted above: " Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Pathfinder S 4WD with 12,000 miles per year in Chicago are .00056 and 59% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

The residual value for a lease with 10,000 miles per year would be 1% higher. "

If I am in NJ would my location change the residuals? I was told they were 58% for 15k, 60% for 12k and 61% for 10k. I would like to do a 12k lease, are my numbers wrong (mine are 1% off based on your above post).

Also for the MF .00056 for the top credit tier, do you know what the MF's may be for any tiers below that? I should have a pretty high credit score, but just want to figure out some different numbers just in case...

I am hoping to take advantage of this $675 cash they have going on until 5/31 for leases. Does that get taking off my "selling price" or is it cash handed back to me at the end. Sorry for so many questions, this is my first lease and trying to run the correct numbers before I go to the dealer again. Thanks a lot!!

Good question dpjp80. I believe that I only used a one point low mileage adder for Nissan because that's what they always used to provide for 12k leases. I think that they add 2% for 12k leases now so the 60% that you were quoted is indeed correct. Sorry for the confusion. It actually is to your advantage to have a higher residual value anyhow .

I haven't seen the money factors from NMAC this month for other credit tiers, but I could try to find them out.

Just take the $675 into account when negotiating the selling price of the Pathfinder that you want. If I was in the market for one right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of say $500 over invoice minus any available cash incentives.

You're going to love the 2013 Pathfinder. Nissan did an amazing job with the redesign of it. In my opinion, it's one of the best values out there for a comfortable 3rd row SUV.

Hi momokawa. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Pathfinder Platinum Plus 4WD with 12,000 miles per year in the New England area are .00056 and 55% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

The residual value for a lease with 10,000 miles per year would be 1% higher.

There should be a $675 cash incentive on leases of this truck in your area right now. Make sure to take it into account during your negotiations.

I got quoted the following for the Maryland area - 36 month lease - 54% residual (12k miles/year), .00056 money factor. I think the residual seems low. Can someone verify this? Also, is the $675 incentive good in MD, as well?

I am looking at a Pathfinder Platinum Fwd in the Dallas area and trying to figure out my deal. My first offer was negotiated price of $37,300 from msrp $40,870. Residual 52% mf .00056 for 36 month 12k/year. Cap cost was 39,959.68. With $1000 down they had payments of $553/month but I calculated at $524. Sale price dropped to $36,150. I figure the cap cost should be $38,738 or so with same residual and mf. The offer now is $459/month with $3,000 down. With that much down I calculate it closer to $435/month and honestly would prefer to be with less down and would have it closer to $520/month with $0 up front. Am I calculating wrong or is the dealer hiding something?

Hi Car_man. I'm interested in a 2013 Pathfinder SL with minimal additional packages. I see a residual of 59% and money factor of 0.00056 mentioned in previous posts. Do these numbers apply to all regions of the US? If not, what would I be looking at in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana area?

Also, I see Nissan offers up to $1,500 in cash incentives comprised of $500 NMAC cash and $1,000 customer cash. Are these cash incentives available for lease deals, or only purchases?

Thanks for your help. From what I see, your information and wisdom here is priceless!

Hi timlajaunie. The money factor that you mentioned is correct for the entire country. The residual value that you mentioned is a little high though. NMAC's current 36-month, 15,000 mile per year residual value for a 2013 Pathfinder SL 4WD is 54%.

The cash incentives that you mentioned are not available on leases. There is a $675 cash incentive on leases of this truck in certain areas, but I'm not sure if Louisiana is one of them.

Can you give me a hand and let me know the approximate monthly lease price on the below variables in NJ (7% tax)?

MSRP $44,645 Negotiated price $40,000 No money down 56% residual .00056 MF $675 Nissan incentive

I am trying to get my monthly payments in and around $475 and am trying to figure out what needs to be negotiated or put out as a down payment to get me there. Is $450 realistic without putting money down? Can you help?

This does not include tags. The tax is on the monthly payment only. Some states, I'm not sure if NJ is one of them, will also tax you on the Adjusted Cap Cost (I think). Putting down $1500 will get your payment to $477.29

If I'm wrong anywhere, somebody please let me know so I can adjust my calculations accordingly

Thank you for your feedback and calculation. This is VERY helpful. I think you are right about the residual - after looking back at my notes from several dealer visits I show actually show different residuals from different dealers. One that I went to last weekend has a 54% residual. Can you recalculate with $2000 down with a 54% residual? In your opinion, what would you categorize as a realistic "good" deal ( total cash out of pocket up front & monthly payment) for this car?

Also, I have 3 payments left on my current lease (Maxima). I am wondering if this is hurting my negotiations or if I should just wait until the lease is over? Thoughts?

Give me your e-mail and I'll send you the Excel spreadsheet I wrote for calculating lease payments.

What year is your Maxima? They hold their value really well, so if it's in good condition with relatively low miles the dealership might buy it and what's left after it's paid off can be used for the down payment. Check the NADA and Blue Book value to get an idea of what it's worth. Both can be found online.

As far as what is a good deal, check and see what Edmunds here says is a good price. Then use the spreadsheet to figure out what you should pay.

My Maxima is a 2010 and has 24,150 miles on it and the 39 month 36K mile lease is up at the end of September. Needless to say this car is in EXCELLENT condition and is 12K miles below the allotted amount.

Can you let me know what the residual, money factor and any incentives for July (July 4th weekend) are? Interested in 39 months and 15,000 miles per year. Interested in the calculation for a Patfinder Premium Platinum & Illuminated Kickplates.

don't quote me, I believe the MF was .00059 (this is from memory, I had it written down at time of sale, but it's not stated on any paperwork I have in front of me).

residual $22526.40

36 months / 15k Mile a year lease - $500/month

Paid first month out of pocket.

It seemed like a decent deal and south of what many have reported here.

Goodluck, I'm sure the deals will even get better over the next month or two as dealers flush out 2013's for the 2014's (which they JUST took delivery of when I purchased this 3 weeks ago).
