Hi Mike. This car's lease payment will depend upon what its selling price is. Let's say that you were only given a $500 discount on it. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a base 2006 Nissan 350Z Coupe with an MSRP of $29,500 and a selling price of $29,000 through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. right now for 36 months with 12,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $536. I advise consumers against making down payments when leasing because those who do risk losing them if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered, but if you were to make a $2,000 down payment on this car it would drop the monthly payment for an otherwise identical lease to around $474. These are before tax, so with tax you will be approaching $500 a month, which is more than you were hoping to pay but still way less than the dealer that you visited quoted you. If you were able to negotiate a larger discount than $500, this car's payment would drop.

Hello lainen. A price that's below dealer invoice is an excellent deal on a new 2006 350Z. The money factor that you were quoted for this car is a little high though. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor for the '06 350Z is .00295 and I believe that it was even less than this in June. Perhaps you are having your car's security deposit waived. NMAC will waive its security deposit requirement in exchange for an increase of .00015 in a vehicle's money factor.
One thing that I notice about the deal that you described is the huge down payment that you are making. If your leased 350Z is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered during the above lease, your nearly $5,000 down payment will essentially disappear. You would be better off keeping that money in the bank and using it to supplement your car's monthly payment or make a few of them for you. Here's what a zero down lease of this car would look like if you are interested. According to my calculations, a 39 month, 12,000 mile per year lease through NMAC of a 2006 Nissan 350Z Touring Coupe with an MSRP of $34,085 and a selling price of $30,869 should have a zero down, pre-tax monthly payment of around $491.

Greetings hangtime03. Here's the info that you're looking for. If you were to lease a 2006 Nissan 350Z Coupe Touring through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. right now for 24 months with 12,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00285 and 61%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease should be .00285 and 52%. The numbers for a 39 month lease should be .00285 and 51%.

I am just curious to see if I got a good deal back then I put 2 k down on 36 months with 15 k miles a year and I am paying 522 including taxes.. Did I get what we call Shafted down here in miami? Or did I get a more or less decent deal? lol

Hi Rob. The best way to tell if you got a good deal on your lease is to look at your car's full MSRP and selling price. Both of these numbers should be listed on your lease contract. They will show you how much of a discount you were given on your car.

Sep 04, 2006 (5:01 pm)
I have been goin crazy every dealer tells me something different so I REALLY need some sound advice here.
I am looking to lease a 2006 or 2007 Mercedes CLS
Okay, heres the problem. 1 dealer tells me to make payments less is better to lease 06 for AND another tells me no, no no better To get the 07?
I am real confused, I am was assuming get a leftover much lower price can pickup vehicle for $72,000 with original MSRP of $78,400(oh yes and MB is offering $2000 cash incentives to dealer on the 06 CLS).
While the 07 with same options is $80,000 and I havent done much negiotated at this point with 07 as I figured smaller monthly payments on a 06 i.e. lower price? am I wrong? Need some help fast 2006 models are clearing quickly with the options I want.
HERES MY NUMBERS-I have found an 2006 with all the options I want MSRP of $78,400- discounting to $71,000 I want a zero 0 down 39 month lease with just reg fees bank etc and no tax included with the payment a 10,000 mile a yr lease, 39 mos any figures to help with this deal- 1 dealer told me $1230 a month with like $5,000 total out of pocket!, doesnt sound to great? Anyway... what should the numbers REALLY be? Since this is a 2006 and not many left I want to move quickly on this car, but dont wanna get ripped off either, thinking of calling the Sales Mgr directly and offering him a deal! Car had been on the lot for months any help, Thanks! Your help is greatly appreciated thanks for your time, see you havent visited CLS board so I want looking for you, hope you dont mind? P.S. Oh just in case, I have good credit.

Anyone leased a 350 Roadster in the SF Bay Area recently? Any good/bad luck with any particular dealer?
I was quoted a MF of .00385 and residual of 53% on a 2006 Roadster with Touring Package and a price of $37500 by Capitol Nissan in SJ. The money factor sounds way too high to me - anyone had better luck?
