2013 and earlier Nissan Maxima Lease Questions

    the deal is 355 for 39 month lease, 12000 miles with 2600 fthat include first month and all fees.

    what do you think?
  • td_inctd_inc Posts: 53
    As the the board preaches regularly, I would strongly recommend against putting so much $$ out of pocket. The best is to have all fees rolled into the lease. If you were to total the car or it were to get stolen, you'd lose that money.
    (That being said you have to make the best decision for yourself whether for one reason or another the lower payment is more important. I've paid a lease upfront for tax savings before)

    The best idea would be to add that amount to the payment over 39 months and then counter offer that or better. It would look like this: $2600 / 39 = 66.66 + $355 = $421.66 (if you gave your first month's payment it would be $412.56)

    The question is what car is this for?? SV + Tech/Prem?

    I would also be really interested to know if this deal is for the premium/tech package.

    What do you guys think for this Maxima lease?

    2012 Maxima SV with Prem, 12k Miles per year, for 39 months. 2k Down. 320 per month :shades: .

    Thats the deal they threw at me.

    Not that I have anything against Maxima, but why would some one even consider it given that for the same money you can lease Infiniti G37x.

    I've just checked NYC brokers offers and they want $345 per month for Maxima SV with Prem and tech and $350 per month for G37x With Sport, Prem, Navi. Infiniti cars come with longer warranty, much better service, stronger engine and rear-wheel based AWD. What does Maxima have? A little more interior space, maybe? Please note that the above mentioned numbers do NOT included tax and other fees and are for comparison purpose only.

    Not advisable to put a down payment of any kind. Refigure your monthly payment without a down payment.
  • td_inctd_inc Posts: 53
    I had an Infiniti M35x. Loved it ... Hard for me to consider a G. It's an entry model in my mind. The kids car. Like an Altima or C class or 3 series. For me I'd rather go with a brand where I feel comfortable getting their best then the entry model, to get the tag.
    I almost got the M again, just thought the $200+/month savings could be better spent (in my case on an investment prop) ... And maybe next lease I will go back to the M.

    That's just me. But if I'm getting a BMW it's 5series or up, Benz Eclass or higher, Infiniti... M is the only choice.
  • ahashmiahashmi Posts: 103
    which broker is offering a G37x with all those options for $350/month?

    and I'm assuming both are $0 down? and same mileage?

    Jumping into the car shopping ring. I'm pretty well educated due to the research that I've been doing for years. Anyways, the title says it all. I'm interested in leasing a winter frost LE. I'd be trading in my car now which I own (still owe on). I can get about 10k for it on trade and break even. I'm looking to be at $300-315/mo on the max. Any insight from anyone would be appreciated. I've seen a few posts about this edition but I'm interested in more opinions. I see a ton of SV with sport, cold, and a few tech that pay anywhere from 340-450. With that being said, it leads me to believe that the car I'm looking at (with a sticker 4-6k below the SV) has a large possibility of being out the door in my budget. Looking to put $1500 down max. I'm in illinois also so we pay taxes on the entire sale price, not just the lease price. However, we also get tax credits. For example, if they give me 10k for my car and I negotiate 31k for the maxima, I pay taxes on the 21k. Regardless, any advice or feedback is appreciated! Thanks!
  • I have a 2010 Max SV Sport w. monitoir pkg...$420/mo Lease expiring Jan. 2013.

  • tomaxtomax Posts: 34

    What is the Money Factor and residual for 39 mo. lease with 15K miles for a Nissan Maxima SV with premium /tech. For lease return, if the dealer says they can take care of most items, is this a sure thing or is it something to think about and a big hassle down the road getting charges off?

    Also, what are the incentives and anything for repeat buyers?

    Appreciate it.

    Car Man,

    Could you provide me the residuals and the money factor for a 3.5 sv 24 month lease. Thank you.
  • dae928dae928 Posts: 22
    I meant to ask for the residual and money factor for the 24 month 3.5 SV with 10k miles/year. Thank you
  • I just leased a 2012 Maxima SV w. Sport Package, Monitor Package, Varpets Mats & undertrunk organizer (waster of $$)
    Anyway, sticker was $38,800..

    Was drawn to the Dealer they offered the last 6 months off my lease )2010 SV Sport w. 28K miles), waive $500 in damages (I had rear ended someone at 15 MPH, so there was damage), they waived all costs, etc.

    The sticker on my new car was $39,000.

    Started with Costco Program ( I knew my dealer participated)
    Price started at $1,000 BELOW Invoice ($35,600)...then Nissan Loyalty Program $750, Plus $1,750 other incentives. I also received credit for an additional 10,000 miles I had prepaid, plus Sales tax


    I decided to take 12K miles (for personal reasons)....after all was said and done, I got another 39 month lease $400/mo...includes extended Warranty, Free Scheduled Maintenance, tax and gap, DMV and all fees.

    I did not pay a penny out of pocket, just too the new car home.

    This payment is almost $25.00 less per month than my 2010, and $45 less than a 2009 Maxima I had that was totaled in October, 2010.

    I think I did I git a more than fair deal. Even tho' this is Maxima #7 or 8, and used the same dealership, it is a new owner in 2005....the ENTIRE Staff changed in the last 3 to 6 months, don;t know the details, but did not get a high pressure deal, I named my numbers and they agrred.
  • Greetings tomax. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39-month lease of a 2012 Maxima SV Premium with 15,000 miles per year are .00035 and 53%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I don't believe that Nissan is offering any special loyalty incentives on this car right now, but there is cash on leases of it in certain areas. What state are you in?

  • Here you go dae928. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Maxima 3.5 SV with 15,000 miles per year are .00035 and 54%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I provided you with the 3 year numbers instead of the 2 year numbers because I don't believe that Nissan is currently providing any support on 24-month leases of this car. If that is indeed the case, then the factor for that term would skyrocket to .00210.

    Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
  • Oh, I see that you wanted a lease with 10,000 miles per year. the residual value for that mileage allowance would be 2% higher than the 15k residual value.

  • I just finalized a lease on a 2012 Maxima SV for 39 months at 15K miles. Car has the Premium and Tech.packages, splash guards, mats, emergency kit, rear spoiler and dealer will install the illuminated kick plates free once available. MSRP was $41,955 and the purchase price was a 34K. After all said and done, the monthly payment is $375 with nothing down. I think this is a pretty good deal.

    I leased a 2010 Maxima SV with the Cold & Monitor packages, mud/splash guards & carpet mats in June '10. Payment is $315/mo for 39 months @ 15K miles/yr (I traded in my car for $11K and took $8K out, so $3K down). My dealer is already offering me a deal on a new 2012 SV w/same options which seems really good, but this is sooner than I anticipated and am only going to seriously consider it now if the deal is a no-brainer. I'm not opposed to getting into a '12 Maxima if it's a crazy good deal; I am still a big fan of the car and was already planning to lease again next year. I haven't seen anything on this forum re: current (October) money factor & residual and would appreciate some info. The deal on the table now is no money down (they'll even pay for the plates, etc), 15K/yr, same model/options - just the first month's lease pmt due at signing, monthly payment of $385. Taking into account the money I put down in '10, this equates to less than my current payment (net). Your input would be appreciated, thx.
  • Sounds like you got an excellent deal to me.
  • Car Man, do you have the money factor and residual for a 2012 Maxima SV with either the sport or premium package, 36 months, 12K miles. Also, are there any current dealer or consumer incentives that can be used towards leasing this vehicle? Thanks
  • Okay, hadn't gotten any responses here yet but have heard back from two dealers so wanted to share. Current money factor is .00035 and residual value is 53% on a 2012 Maxima SV. I found a second dealer who offered $376.xx as opposed to the $385 at my current dealer. Both deals seem good to me, so I will likely end up in a new '12 Maxima this week.

    Got what I feel is a great deal on a 2012 Maxima SV. I had eleven payments left on my 2010 Maxima SV lease, which seemed so early to get a good deal, but sure enough I am now in a gorgeous, brand new '12 Maxima SV with Monitor Pkg, Cold Pkg, Spoiler, Splash Guards & Floor Mats (MSRP $37,200). They bought out my '10 (which they will be selling on their lot) and paid for EVERYTHING including license plates, and I simply paid my first month's payment of $379 (39 month lease @ $379 per month w/15K miles per year). I don't know how they can do it, but I feel like I got a great deal and am loving my new car.

    I should add, I was EXTREMELY happy with my 2010 Maxima -- never had a single issue or repair in the 28 months I had add (only paid for oil changes and to swap out the wiper blades last winter) and would have happily waited until closer to my lease end to get a new one, but I really liked the 'Ocean Gray' exterior which is not offered on the 2013, so decided to go a bit earlier than initially planned in order to get the color that I liked. Well, that and the fact that the 2013 model appears to be identical in every way that matters, so really no need to wait.

    I am in Chicagoland (Illinois), and bought from "Severo" at M'Lady Nissan in Crystal Lake. He was WONDERFUL; best car buying/leasing experience I have had so far.

    Current money factor is .00035 and residual value is 53% on a 2012 Maxima SV, by the way.
  • I'd be happy to help you out refrunner. NMAC's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Maxima SV with 12,000 miles per year are .00035 and 56% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    There is cash on leases of this car in certain states. Where do you live?

    Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
  • Florida, thanks
  • Good stuff refrunner. Florida is one of the states that the lease cash is available in. There's $1,000 on most 2012 Maxima models there. SVs with certain packages have a little more than that.

  • Car Man, do you have the money factor and residual for a 2012 Maxima SV with premium package and Nav, for 36 or 39 months with 10K/12K miles. Also wondering if there are any current dealer or consumer incentives in NJ/NY area that can be used towards leasing this vehicle?
  • Hi Discostew1,

    I am curious what dealer you went with....if you are in the Northeast...also does your monthly payment that you negotiated include tax?

  • Here's the information that you're looking for fuma08057.

    Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s new November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Maxima SV with 12,000 miles per year are .00016 and 54% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are .00016 and 53%.

    If you were to lease with only 10,000 miles per year, this car's residual values would be 1% higher.

    As far as cash incentives go, you're in luck in your area Nissan is providing a whopping $1,500 bonus cash on the Maxima through the 12th. There's another $1,000 cash incentive on leases of this car for the entire month on top of that.

  • Thanks for the help car man.

    I closed on a lease deal on Saturday and picked up the car on Monday--here is the deal I got on a 2012 Maxima SV with Premium Pkg and Tech Pkg:

    $350 per month (including 7% tax) for 39 months. 12k miles per year.
    The only out of pocket expenses were the first month payment, and $250 towards my plates. Residual Value was 53%, money factor was .00016, and the sticker was ~$41.6k.

    I think I got a good deal.
