#403 of 1712 Re: Final details - 12 month lease [elansp]
Oct 28, 2006 (2:49 pm)
I just picked up the following from Circle Infiniti in West Long Branch, NJ:
2006 FX35 AWD
12 month lease with 12k miles
for $399 with $3000 total out of pocket
I think that's a pretty good deal and Infiniti Financial told me I can extend for up to 6 months at the same rate.
A 2007 similarly equipped model would go for over $600 with the same $$ down. The minor features that were added for 2007 (iPod connection, power retractable side mirrors & different wheels) are not worth waiting and the extra $$
Infiniti expects to offer a mid sized SUV in 2008 (like BMW X5, Acura MDX) to complete their SUV lineup. That's why they have the 12 month lease program on the FX until 10/31/06

Hi all: Went to an Infiniti dealer today in response to an ad they were running this past weekend for FX35's. Can you have a look at the figures below and provide some input (Is this a good deal? - what should I look out for?). Thank you.
2006 FX35 AWD Touring & Handsfree package.
Term = 12 months / 12K Miles
Monthly Pmt = $325 ($348 with 7% Sales Tax).
Down Pmt ZERO
Acq Fee 550
1st Pmt w/Tx 348
Total due at signing = $1313.
$3,825 (remaining 11 pmts)
Total 12 months + Fees = 5138
I may be missing a registration fee in the quote.

I have contacted Infiniti of Manhattan 3 times and gotten the same deal (303/month, 2900 down, etc) and even submitted a credit application and they don't ever call me back to let me know whats going on. It is like pulling teeth to get them to sell me a car. Has anyone else had that situation? It's getting annoying. The sales guy told me I had 3 weeks from when I submitted the application to take advantage of the deal, but he never gets back to me.

I am going to make an offer now and if dealer takes it then I will have a FX35 RWD very soon..
Selling price: 37428 (invoice)
Res: 78% (15k for 12 months)
Fees: 1030$ rolled in Gross Cap
0$ Down - No Cap cost reduction
648$/month inc. CA taxes for 11 months (0$ for 1st month payment)
This comes down to 7128$ for all period of the lease
594$/month inc CA taxes over 12 months.
It looks like Nov deals went up in monthly payments. I tried to challenge dealers on 2,5 or 2k incentive to take selling price below, but it didn't work. I believe this incentive is not for 1-year leases.
Anyway, pls provide any thoughts you may have since if my deal doesn't work then I can still use your advises.

Greetings sticman. Infiniti Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 12 month lease of a 2006 FX35 AWD with 12,000 miles per year are 00043 and 80%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 24 month lease are .00076 and 67%. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00130 and 56%. If you haven't leased this truck yet, make sure that the dealer you are working with uses these new numbers to calculate your monthly payment.
I am not intimately familiar with what the market is like for the Infiniti FX35 right now, but full MSRP sounds way too high to me. You definitely should be able to negotiate some sort of discount on one.

Hi kgraber. Let's use Infiniti's current lease program to calculate a lease payment on this truck and see what we come up with. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2006 Infiniti FX35 AWD with an MSRP of $44,060 and a selling price of $39,498 (you never mentioned the exact model that you want, let me know if my assumption is incorrect) through Infiniti Financial Services right now for 12 months with 15,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $423. As you can see, the monthly payment that you were quoted by the dealer you are working with is WAY out of whack. I used Infiniti Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value of .00043 and 79%.

Hi pk3737. I always advise consumers against making down payments on leased vehicles. I do so because if your leased Infiniti is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered, any down payment that you made on it will essentially disappear. Even though your monthly payment will be a little higher, you would be much better off not making any sort of down payment on this lease.
The dealer invoice price of a 2006 Infiniti FX35 AWD Touring is around $37,947. I assume that the "Net Cap" that you were quoted is this vehicle's selling price minus the $3,000 down payment that you are considering making. If so, it means that this vehicle's selling price is actually around $40,012. If this is the selling price, you are only getting around a $1,000 discount and you might be able to do better by negotiating more or shopping around.

You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the FX that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing this truck's selling price in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion of this deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

Hi scottrl. At first glance, this looks like a good deal to me. In order for me to give you a detailed analysis of it, I need you to provide me with this vehicle's MSRP and selling price. Let me know and I will break it down for you.
