#828 of 1692 LEASING FX35 QUESTIONS
Dec 05, 2007 (2:26 pm)
First off I know nothing about leasing. I want to get the 2008 FX35 AWD with hands free and touring package. They are offering it at local dealer with sticker price of 43500. It is the FX35 AWD they are offering on this months Infiniti page for 399mth and 3200 down for 24 mths. First off is this a good deal from the get go or can I get a better one? I would really like a 36 mth lease. Where do I start?

The lease that they are offering right now for $399 is awesome... It has a money factor of 0.001 and a residual of 67%. I just leased my fully loaded graphite colored FX35 AWD (everything but sports package) with MSRP of $48K for $599/month including tax, title, license and $2K down. It is basically the same deal with the extra additions and the lower down payment. Have you ever heard of getting a $48k car for $599/month... If you check lease trading sites, a similarly equipped FX35 AWD goes for about $800/month.
In regards to leasing for36 months, DON'T DO IT... The lease is special for 24 months and goes up quite a bit after that per the manager at my infiniti dealer. Wow, he actually was looking out for me instead of the bottom line... Don't see that very often. I was very pleased with my experience and am now finding accessories to put on my FX35.
One more thing... Apparently the 2009 model of the FX35 (that will actually be released 2 years from now in late 2009) will have all the neat stuff the other infinitis have now like touch screen navigation with hard-drive to backup and store your cd's onto and the neat gadgets on the soon to be released EX like the birdseye rear view monitoring and more advanced lane change technology. Maybe even other neat gadgets knowing infiniti...

Think it is still a good deal even though it doesn't include tax and tags?
#831 of 1692 Lease + Rebate + Tax Credit?

Is the $2500 rebate in effect with the leases? Does it include the tax credit? That would make it $399/month with $700 down and no taxes. If it's true, it's amazing.

My understanding is that the rebate cannot be used in correlation with the lease offer, but it can get you a pretty good deal if you purchase it. Like I said in previous entry, the FX35 will be new in 2 years with the latest gadgets and leasing right now seems to be the best option.

Yes I do meccanj98 for the reason I outlined above. A $48K car for that much money (even a lease) is really good even if you have to put the down payment down and pay tax/title/license. Remember, you can alter the monthly payment (up or down) to get a lower or higher down payment and vice versa. Ask the dealer for several quotes with different monthly/down payment combinations to see which one fits your budget or situation.

2008 FX35 AWD
Touring, Hands Free, Splash guards, Roof rails and Cargo protector
15,000 miles per year
$529.99 due at signing
$529.99 a month
Includes NJ 7% tax, lic, MV, bank fee, doc fee etc.
I thought I got a pretty nice deal, considering that the sale price is way into holdback.
Now another dealer is telling me he can beat the deal by $300 by using a non IFS deal.

REDTREE00...which dealership did you find that deal at? Also what is a non IFS deal and what dealer told you that? So all that would come out of your pocket is 529.99?
#836 of 1692 FX35 $508/month
Dec 06, 2007 (5:25 pm)
We are finishing up the final touches on an FX35 AWD, Nav, Technology, Sport, iPod, handsfree, DVD. 49805 MSRP, 45219 Invoice, dealership is basing it on $48000
The dealership is offering $508/month with $4000 at lease signing for a 24 month 12k lease.
A few questions.
How much should I push to lower the cost closer to invoice? I am inexperienced in dealing with Infiniti.
Is it better to keep my money and accept the higher payment, or put the money down. Either way it is within our means, just want opinions on money management.
Sounds like a good deal?
