Just got the following deal on a VPP which I think stinks but need your opinion...
Initial Cap Cost: $41,457 MSRP: 44,310
Trade Allowance $11,500 (I owe $15k, will put down $3k to offset negative equity)
Acq Fee: $595
Cap Cost reduction: $2,227
Annual Fees: $108
Rebate: $2,000 (loyalty)
Residual (LEV): 45%
Money Factor: .00170 *******this is where I get screwed...isn't this high???
48 months, 10k miles per year
Initial Fees: $78
Total Working Cash: $5,000
Customer Cash Down: $3,000
Amount Due At Start: $5,000
Monthly Payment: $584
I am really ticked off at this dealer. I have bought many cars from them and they are screwing me on the MF, nickel and diming me on fees and the terms on this lease from IFS. I have close to 800 credit score and have $3500 negative equity in my car, but will put down $3k to offset that. I can't understand why we cannot get a better deal at this dealer. They tell me that they have to make a little money on the money factor...seems like BS to me. There is no $3k marketing reduction at all, and I am trying to convince them to up their trade in value for me. I have a 2003 Infiniti FX35 sport/touring with 92k miles that I bought from them and serviced there since day one, and they still are killing me on the trade in.

Does anyone know whether IFS will let you out early and forego balance of lease payments if you are leasing another Infiniti? I have 3 months left on my FX lease and want to get the 2009 early but my dealer is telling me that I will have to make all 3 remaining payments. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

They are killing you on more than one place
1. MSRP:44310 means $37,988 cap + $3,000 incentive = $40,988
2. Cap Cost reduction - i understand money our of pocket - NO!
3. Annual Fees: $108 - what for?
4. MF: They offered .0011, then lowered to .00107 and finally .00105 at 8PM
5. 3,000 customer cash down - this is a rip-off and a travesty at the same time
tell the dealer to take a hike - or show them an internet special on comp vehicle and if they still give you the reach around - tell them to bug off

I just turned in my 2005 FX 3 months early and there was no program that I could find that IFS would waive the balance of the payments. I tried to negotiate on the 2009 the difference but the dealer was unwilling to give me a good deal and also pick up the remaining payments. Maybe in a couple more months if thing do not pick up they might start doing that but that will not help you.
I love the 09 they made some great improvements. Good luck.

I am trying to lease an FX 35 in California, south bay area. Any advice as to where and which dealership I should buy from. I dont feel like haggling ten dealers or so. Please let me know if you know of a good sales person and the deal that you may have recieved. This would be a huge help.
Aternatively, if you know of a good internet special or link of any infiniti in the COUNTRY that had a good online price. I can just use that as the starting point.

Infiniti of Lisle in the Chicago suburbs has the best deal so far. I got them to lower their offer twice - and no other dealer can match.
But, maybe someone can tell me if it is a good deal.

Hi guys.. i posted earlier but would really like an opinion. I'd like to lease ASAP. I received some updated numbers. I'm not a current Infiniti customer so don't qualify for the $2k loyalty incentive. I'm pretty sure they're quoting me with the incentive so I'll have to clarify.
I also got a call from the auto broker today stating that the program changed for Infiniti? $500 below invoice, MF .00105, and residual 49%. Does that make sense?
39 mths, 10k, $2500 drive off, MSRP $41765 = $480.52 + tax/mth.
*but said this includes the loyalty incentive.
39 mths, 10k $533 drive off, MSRP $41825 = $533/mth w/ tax.
Thoughts? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi KQ6C: Go see Nicole Dela Cruz at Santa Monica Infiniti. She will give you straight scoop.

Dude - 4k down?!!! In this economy. Tell Lisle they should pay YOU at this point to take a car off their lot. That's too much my friend, don't fall for it.
