Hi chicarguy. Consumers can always lease without making any sort of capitalized cost reduction. In fact, it is your best interest not to make one when leasing. Lessees who make large down payments on leases risk losing part or all of them if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. Even though it means that your monthly payment will be a little higher, you will be much safer going with a zero down lease.
As far as the advertised lease that you mentioned goes, this is an official Infiniti advertisement for this truck. Savvy consumers who are in an area that has a decent level of competition are usually able to beat manufacturers' official advertised deals by negotiating a lower selling price than the one that was used to calculate them. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them, Shop around and shoot for a selling price that's as close to dealer invoice as possible on the new FX that you want. You can look up its exact invoice price over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of this site.

Hi msu79gt82. Infiniti was providing $4,000 owner loyalty cash on purchases, not leases, of the '09 FX35 in December. I don't believe that the four grand is still available. It has only been providing $2,000 loyalty cash on IFS leases. I know that two grand on leases definitely is still available in January.

#1114 of 1712 Royally confused
Jan 21, 2009 (1:26 pm)
This is my latest info...
Cap Cost $45,928.65
Doc Fee. $176.65
Money Factor 1.090
Residual $27,803.80 -53% of MSRP
Monthly Payment - $729
Due at Signing - $1047
That money factor seems strange compared to what I've seen on this board. Can someone explain better to me?

Chicarguyl: Do you have the decimal (money factor) in the wrong place? How many months is the lease?

Hello Car Man-
I was originally looking for a FX35 but the MF and residuals on a RWD are so poor that I am considering a FX50 to see if I can get a bigger bang for my buck.
Can you provide the MF and residuals for the following please?
2009 FX50 Base 39, 42 and 48 month lease 10k miles
2009 FX35 2WD, Premium 39, 42 and 48 month lease
I am in Texas and we literally have NO AWD vehicles. Thanks

I was wondering if I could ask some quick advice.
I am currently in a 2006 G35 Coupe that I would dearly love to get rid of. I am 32 months into a 39 month lease and was wondering what, if anything, I could do to get out of the lease and into a new car.
Originally I was looking at a Murano but also thought it might be an idea to look at the new FX 35.
Earlier today I was quoted the following at an Infiniti dealership here in L.A.:-
$3,500 to clear the lease
$1,200 dealer payment
$550 a month (ex tax) on a 39 month lease with 10,000 miles a year on the lease.
The sales manager said the residuals on the FX 35 are dropping, he had then at 52%. He also said that by the end of my current lease the monthly payments could go up as the banks do not want people leasing cars and with the worsening economy the residuals could drop further.
Now I don't think for a minute it could get so bad it would be worth paying $3,500 now to get out of the lease as there is the possibility lease payments could go up by $100 a month in 7 months time. Only if that was to happen would paying off the lease now make sense.
I am also using a VPP as I have friends that work for Nissan.
Any advice would be great, thanks!

I have decided that I will go with another FX35 in the next month (lease is over March 19) and I was wondering if I could do something along the lines of leasing an 09 with the 18s and swapping them out for the stock 20s I have now on my 05 sport.
#1120 of 1712 Is it uncommon to do 9k mi/yr to up the residuals?
Jan 30, 2009 (11:42 am)
I don't use that much mileage and just am wondering if doing a 9k/mi is uncommon in lease deals.
Thanks for any input in advance.
#1121 of 1712 February FX35 AWD Lease Numbers
Feb 01, 2009 (9:00 pm)
Do you have the numbers for February on an FX35 AWD (MF and residual) for 36 and 39 month leases? Also, what incentives/lease programs are available for this month? Thanks.
