#876 of 8139 replacing manual transmission
Dec 07, 2006 (5:47 pm)
I signed a 2 yr lease for a 2006 Infiniti G35 Sedan MT6 few months back; i started having problems with the gear box recently where it would be really stiff; i took it to a local dealer and it turns out that they have the authorization to replace the transmission and is scheduled for next week.
I could be completely off but should i not check with infiniti and ask for a new car altogether .. a car with replaced transmission isnt a new car anymore. Can anybody let me know what my options/ rights as a customer are ?

I'm also considering the BMW 525i/530i deal over the G35. The G35 Journey w/ premium has all I need, but the terms for Infiniti are not very favorable in comparison to BMW, making the two cars very close in terms of lease costs.
The current base money factor for the BMW 525i and 530i is an amazing 0.0005. The residual on the 36 month lease w/ 12k miles is 62%. I drove the BMW today... the main problem here in South Florida is that they are moving the cars quickly and it is getting hard to get the color/option combo that I want. I'll probably have to order it.
In comparison the local Infiniti had plenty of 07 G35's in stock. It seems to me that Infiniti has missed an opportunity to move some cars at the end of the year by not providing better incentives....

I forgot to mention that to get the 0.0005 BMW money factor, all you need is 1 month security deposit and good credit.

2007 G35-S Sedan Automatic
Color Black on Black
Premium, Navigation, Technology, Packages w/ Sirius Sat.
Basically Everything but active Steering, Splash Guards, Maybe they will throw in the wing. (Maybe)!!!
24 Month Lease 10k miles a year.
1,500 Down + 800 Bank Fee + 500 Destination Fee + Tax 8.375
So a Grand Total of about 4,000 Due at Signing. I Estimated the Tax to be About 1,200.
443 a Month.
I am not the smartest guy in the world. Need fellow car lovers help. Don't know how to figure out what the correct deal is. Am I being robbed, Great Deal, Am I in the Ball Park? If I left out any info, please let , me know, I will provide. Thank you in advance for your help, I need it!!!!!
Car_man I asked the dealer those questions. He would not give me an answer. I got him to say 39,500. Also he is not throwing in the wing, but he will give mats, wheel locks ,cargo net, and plate covers. But he told me it did not matter what the price was, because my intention is to give it back after the 24 months. Like I said, I really am new at this, and not to bright. If it is 39,500 is that bad? What should I tell him. And if so can, please explain why I should negotiate that price? Thank you and everyone for there help!!!!!!!!

I'll plug your numbers into a calculator in a minute to see what the missing factors are. However...if he keeps saying that the price doesn't matter because you are turning it in in 24 months...he is full of it. Also...you shouldn't put the 1500 as a down payment. If you do anything with it you should put it towards 2 or 3 extra security deposit payments. Your money factor will go down, and your monthly payment will go up slightly, but when the lease is over you will get that 1500 back!!

Do you know what the residual will be and what the money factor is? Also...how did you estimate the tax to be 1200?

BMW is a great a machine. However, G35 offers more for your money, Standad Rear view monitor, VDC, Vehicle dynamic control for faster stops and safer agility control. ICC, Inteligent cruise control, lane departure sesnor,
and not to mention 306 HP and 268 Torque.....
let me know if you guys need the exact figures for leasing and buying on any Infiniti models
