Hi Lany. A base 2006 Infiniti FX35 AWD has a spread of a little over $3,100 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice prices. You are being given a discount of $2,660 on the model that you are interested in. This looks like a reasonable price to me. You may be able to get additional feedback on this price by visiting the following discussion: "Infiniti FX45 / FX35: Prices Paid & Buying Experience". Using the prices that you mentioned in your post, an MSRP of $40,058 and a selling price of $37,399, and Infiniti Financial Services' base lease program I estimate that this vehicle's 36 month, 12,000 mile per year, zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $490. With this lease, all you would have to pay at lease signing are your vehicle's first month's payment, a $500 security deposit, and IFS' $550 acquisition fee. If you aren't making any sort of cap cost reduction for the lease that you posted info about, the payment is fine. If you are, just make sure that the dealer you are working with is using IFS' buy rate lease money factor of .00141 to calculate your FX's payment.

#215 of 1712 I did it

Picked up the '06 FX35 AWD with touring, hands free, mud flaps and cargo mat last week. Diamond Graphite with Willow interior. I love this car! What a joy to drive.
I did a 39/12k lease. With EVERYTHING rolled in the lease (acquisition, license, registration, security deposit waived - my only OTD was my first payment) I'm at $547, including 7.075% tax.
For comparison, the 12 month lease payment was $527. I knew I wouldn't be ready to do this all again in a year, so I took the longer term.
I didn't buy anything in the F&I office, but there was something that sounded interesting. It was a wheel & tire insurance plan. Up front cost of ~$350 will pay for repairs to damaged tires and wheels. I know what it costs to repair or replace a wheel so the cost of the plan seemed pretty reasonable. I keep my insurance deductible at $500, and wouldn't make a claim for something minor like that anyway. Opinions?
Thanks again to the Car_Man for your help.
#217 of 1712 Infiniti FS Current Program Information
Jun 20, 2006 (7:10 pm)
Car_Man: I see information about great programs like the 12 month leases on the FX and G on the forums, but is there anywhere that this information is publicly available? I check ed Edmunds' rebates and incentives page for Infiniti, and it lists no lease deals right now.
What I'm looking for is a place to see what special programs Infiniti FS (and other financing arms) have going on at any given time. Is there somewhere on Edmunds.com or elsewhere I can get this, other than trolling the Townhall leasing forums all the time?

Just picked up a loaded ivory FX-35 - tech, touring, hands-free, dvd, cross bars, splash guards, cargo protector, tow hitch - all in a 12 month lease w/ 15000 mi. Beautiful wheat interior MSRP $48500 - my payments are $538/mo. Special $250 Customer Appreciation rebate lowered the payments to $514! Picked up the car yesterday - I love it!! It's a 12 month test drive - best case I get a brand new one in '07, worst case - I'm only committed for a year.

Did you have to put any money down? how much?

No money down besides first payment, title, registration, fees, etc. It was a great deal!

Jun 21, 2006 (5:42 am)
but what did they charge for all that? What about a bank fee and/or inception fee?
I'm just trying to get a handle on total cost for one year of renting a car.

I paid about $1500 out of pocket - taxes 425, reg 100, doc fees 170, acquistion fee 550, first payment 514 - then applied 250 rebate. My total cost for the year will be about $7200. I got a pretty great deal.

Ok. Thanks for the breakdown.
My wife definitely wouldn't be on board for $600/mo, though. It's good considering the price of the vehicle, though, that's for sure.
