#1247 of 1692 HELP CARMAN -- with lease on 2009 FX35
Apr 23, 2009 (10:42 am)
Cost - 50,160 (premium, touring and trailer hitch)
CAP - $46,184
MF .00101 Resid. 50%
Term 39 months, 15K miles per year
They are quoting $606 per month with $1452 (bank fee and first month) out of pocket plus DMV fees. Taxes are in payment - Westchester County, New York.
i am a returning Infiniti leasee. Not sure if they applied the $2,000. Also, isn't there an additional $1,000 conquest cash (I also have an Audi).?? Any factory to dealer cash? Holdback?
I think the payment is too high. Help.

The MSRP is definitely $51,435.
I just spoke to an assistant sales person, and there is a doc fee of $150 and a disposition fee of $350. With these two items, I am 'guessing' that he is also adding $350 of profit so perhaps that is how you are seeing the difference in the numbers???
But even if he is making a $350 profit, there is nothing I can do about it. If I don't like the deal, I need to find a different dealership. He won't lower the price bad economy or not.

How does this deal sound,
This car is an old sticker car (before the msrp was raised) so with AWD, and Premium it is stickered at 45K and change
The deal is
1500 drive off, out of pocket
4500 for multiple security deposits (which i get back at the end to reduce money factor)
39 month 15K lease
monthly including taxes 490 in PA
how does that sound, this includes the 2K owner loyalty cash for the lease.

I think you found your answer. That's another $450 that was missing from your original information.
So now the numbers work out at $587.60
I think it's as good as your going to get.
Why don't you just ask for a print out with everything detailed so you can review it.
That's what my dealer here in NY does. It's completely transparent.
Are they quoting you exactly $600? If so over the life of the lease they're making $483.60
It seems a good deal to me but it's good to have all the numbers so you can assess it for yourself.
The reference to the economy was so that they would understand why you where being so specific about getting the details and look what happened ever time you've asked more questions. There nothing wrong with being an informed customer.

Get this - I just spoke to the finance manager and he said the dealership has to pay the rent too, and he referenced $500 in the same breath. LOL
Yes, it is exactly $600 a month, so they must be making slightly less than $500 over the life of the lease.
I don't feel like it's a poor deal for me, the sale price is close to invoice, and I essentially put very little done and got 39 month terms.
I would sleep ok over this deal ...

Well there you go!
The mystery $500 !!!
Pity they just couldn't be straight with you in the beginning. They just didn't expect you to run the numbers.
I'd still want to see everything printed up so there are no surprises on the day you go to sign the contract.
Just goes to show it doesn't hurt to ask questions.
If you're happy with the numbers now that you know the score then go for it.
It's a sweet car. I have a first gen. FX currently and love it.

ya, thanks for the words of encouragement. I plan to pick the car up tomorrow night, so I will see the numbers in writing and go from there. btw - it's Liquid Platinum with the Java leather. Really smart looking in person. (I don't think the new model photographs particularly well) LOL
What year is your FX? I had an '06 with Sport and Touring packages. Great, fun drive. But the new model takes the vehicle to a new level. In my view.

I have an '07. Have to change it in a few months.
Sounds like yourself a nice upgrade.

According to Automotive News, a trade publication, the following was listed as DEALER INCENTIVES.
NISSAN NORTH AMERICA
Expires June 30.
Infiniti QX56 $6,000
FX50, M45 $5,000
FX35, M35 $4,000
I assume that the $2,000 loyalty cash, which is a customer incentive, is also available.

Thanks! I have a question:
1) Can the $4,000 FX35 incentive be applied toward a lease (even partially)?
I am trying to work a deal, and find that if i can get a $2,000 loyalty discount, and another $3,000 discount, on a lease, I could afford an fx35.
