#1392 of 1712 WOW, leasing sure has changed over the years!!

Hello everyone!! My 2007 Infiniti FX35 RWD (touring/sport/hands-free pkg) MSRP $43,500 was LEASED for 39 months (ends in 5/2010) for $465/mo + tax with only $1,000 out of pocket (total due at signing).
I just received my "special invitation" for a LEASE on a 2010 FX35 RWD for $599/mo. + tax ($3,500 due at signing) postcard in the mail. YIKES. What a RIP.
***The MORE loaded model was $653/mo. + tax!!!!!!!!!!!!
Leasing has really taken a huge hit due to the doomed auto industry, banking messes and poor economy. Wow, how things changed in just 3 short years.
NO WAY would I ever pay $650/mo after giving up $3,500 to the dealer for a LEASE on ANY vehicle. That's just nuts. Craziness like that is why the country is in the recession/problems to begin with..........people try to buy/lease more than they can truly afford to impress the neighbors/friends. Stupid.
We liked driving the FX35 for the last 36 months or so, and we will miss it. Since it was a good lease deal ($465/mo) we took it. But $200/mo MORE with $2,500 MORE due at signing for a 2010?? No thanks.

Pretty good deal. They are really dumping those things I guess.

Tough to answer your question. There is TOO MUCH info missing.
Selling Price (Cap Cost)??
Money Factor (MF/interest rate)??
What is your state sales tax??
What "fees" are included in the $1,500 down??
NEVER, EVER try to negotiate "payments" in a LEASE DEAL. Just do as you would normally do when purchasing a vehicle.........work them DOWN from the sticker price. The payment will be what it will be.........that's to say it will be $650/mo or it won't be (it's based on what the dealer is "selling" you the vehicle for......then it is run thru the "lease calculator" = payment).

Too bad the residual value isn't a little higher, 53% is making your payments pretty high. If you can swing those monthly payments, it sounds like a pretty good deal.
You might want to consider looking at a "lesser" FX35 AWD model, since you are leasing......but again it is your call.
#1399 of 1712 What are the rates right now
