#101 of 1712 Re: 2005 vs 2006 FX 35 - Lease Questions [philbrandn]

Hello Phil. I am not personally all that familiar with the differences between the 2006 and 2005 Infiniti FX, but you may be able to find out by visiting the following discussion: "Infiniti FX45 / FX35".
While dealers are often a little more willing to negotiate at the end of the month and the end of the year to pull as many sales into their monthly and annual totals as possible, I personally doubt that you will see the prices of 2005 FX35s go up in January. That will be even closer to the arrival of the 2006 model and most likely dealers will be anxious to get the leftover 2005 models off of their lots and they will discount them accordingly.
I have heard that Chicago has a strange way of calculating sales tax on leased vehicles, so it would not surprise me if it was significantly more expensive to lease the one that you want there than it would be to lease it in other areas.
Infiniti has a pretty good lease program on the '05 FX35 right now, so there really isn't any downside to leasing one. You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the model that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing this truck's selling price in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to work up a sample lease payment on the FX that you are interested in for you if you let me know what these numbers are.

I leased a fx35 with touring for my wife in september. With $1300 down the payment is around $474.01 I negotiated the selling price of $35,300. I believe that's about $100.00 under invoice. That payment includes the awful Texas tax where you pay tax on the whole price of the vehicle. I hope that helps somebody. Great car. So far I think only the dreaded Nissan brake rotors are going out. I'm making an appointment this week to have them checked.
A little to soon IMO only been 4 months
#103 of 1712 More Information
Dec 13, 2005 (9:14 am)
Thanks Car_man and dhamilton for the info. Here's the information I received from my dealer. Again, this is on a 2005 FX35 AWD with premium package and tech (including navigation). Please let me know if you think this is a fair deal and where you think there is room to improve. Does the selling price seem high? Are the money factors in line with Infiniti's programs?
Thanks so much.....Phil

#105 of 1712 FX 35 Lease...Need Advise Car Man
Dec 13, 2005 (1:51 pm)
Hi Car Man,
I've been following your words of wisdom, and have called 3 local dealerships, and received similar quotes. The most competitive quote is:
FX35 AWD ~ Touring ~ Black on Black
Cap Cost: $ 37,302
36 months, 12000 miles a year
Money Factor: .00119
$460.00/month (tax included)
$1370 due at lease signing (Bank Aquisition Fee, Doc Fee, First Month's Payment, Title, Registration, and Inspection costs. No Security Deposit)
How does deal sound? This is lowest Cap Cost I could negotitae. Dealership said they were making $161.25 on the invoice. What are your thoughts?
#106 of 1712 Is this a good lease deal for an FX35?
Dec 15, 2005 (10:14 pm)
I'm turning in an 04 Acura TL early on a lease. I'm upside down approximately $3200 if the dealer gives me high blue book trade, and he has said he will do so based on the description of the condition of my car. He has already checked the payoff amount on the lease, the VIN number, and the registration...OK, so here's the deal.
Keep in mind the monthly payment includes paying off my TL
'05 FX35 w/ Touring and Technology Packages
18,000 miles per year
Drive Off: $1750
Monthly $: $618.90 (includes tax)
Without the trade-in, the deal would be..
Drive Off: $1460
Monthly $: $507.00
I don't know the residual, but the money factor is .00115 right now.
Thanks to any and all for your feedback.

#109 of 1712 Lease Help on FX35
Dec 18, 2005 (10:48 am)
I am planning on leasing an FX 35, so far the lowest I have got the price quote is:
2005 Infiniti FX35 RWD equipped with Touring and Tech Packages with Trunk Mat and Splash Guards.
Negotiated price $40,576.20 + tax + fee
But I wanna keep my monthly payment around $450.00
So here's my lease deal:
36 month 12,000 miles at $450 monthly with $3,810.62 in drive offs
39 month 12,000 miles at $450 monthly with $3,104.88 in drive offs.
So what do you guys think? Is the drive off a little bit high? Please help? I am planning to close the deal these two days. Thanks!

Couple of questions...
$450/month...does that include tax? What is the monthly lease payment without tax? What is your states tax rate?
Out of $3,810 drive off, how much is an actual down payment? If $3,810 is the complete downpayment, not including registration, taxes, first month, etc, your monthly rate should be around $410.00.
I would suggest 36 month over 39 month. In my opinion, December is always the best time to lease so try and have your next lease start in December as well.
