#277 of 365 QX56 finance question
Jan 28, 2012 (8:42 pm)
I am looking at purchasing a brand-new leftover 2011 Infiniti QX56 from a dealership in the Sacramento area.
Does anyone know if a 2011 can still be leased even though it is new?
The reason I am asking is because last year about this time I was in the market for a 7-series BMW. The dealer had a smokin' deal on a 2010 750li, and when I asked why it was such a bargain, he told me that most people lease these vehicles and even though it was new, it couldn't be leased because it wasn't a current model year vehicle. So I don't know if that was bull or if there is some validity to it.
I am planning on paying cash for the QX as I keep my cars for a long time, but was wondering if I could use this as a bargaining chip.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello charliem. Infiniti Financial Services' January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 QX56 AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00164 and 52%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.
The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are .00163 and 51%.

Yes, norcalhills, the 2011 QX56 can indeed still be leased if you really want to. Infiniti has not pulled the plug on its lease support for most 2011 models yet.

#280 of 365 Anyone can help about buying?

The buying forum is dead. I see people talking prices here. I am interested in buying and have looked at 2 2012 QX56 vehicles this week and all sold before I decided what to do. One was a 4 wheel drive and the other was a 2 wheel drive. The 2 wheel drive was available but with the wheel package I didn't want. So I thought well the 4 wheel drive is not much more than the wheel package so I will deal on it. I went back and it was gone and the other one too. No one has them here in Texas that I can find. Rather one. There were 2 yesterday and one left today but not in Austin. I want a platinum grey with the graphite interior, theater package, and lighted step plate but no big deal on that. Chrome step in back and the cargo net package. I know I can buy that at parts so again no big deal.
Here is the problem. I couldn't figure out why the prices didn't match up on the ones I was looking at to Infiniti or Edmunds or NADA for that matter. They were 500 off. I finally figured out with no help from sales that prices had went up and these were 500 less. I can get another one but the same thing is 500 more. Oh they say I can get a discount but whatever it is, it is now 500 higher either way. Nothing I can do.
I can go with the bigger wheels if I have to and if the deal is good enough. Same for 4 wheel drive. The grey is hard to find in Texas except the tan interior and all of the package taking it to 70k or more.
I guess my question is in ordering one, is there any discount I can get or are you better off buying off the lot when they get something? I was offered 4,500 off of the one that had the old pricing. It was priced at 65,795. Now it is 66,295 for the same thing. It was a 4 wheel drive and had standard wheels, theater package, lighted kick plates, cargo package deal, chrome step up. That same one would be like getting 5,000 off if I found it and got the same deal. This was with no real negotiating and I figure I could have done better.
So what is it realistic to get off? We did settle also on a price for my trade in. I will pay cash.
Sorry to post this on the lease part but the buy part is dead.

#283 of 365 Feb Lease Rates & Opinion
Feb 13, 2012 (9:35 am)
Like the above, I am looking for residual and money factor for February QX56 AWD. Also, carman, do you think that the Advertised $835 per month, 39 Months, 12,000 miles per year with $3,999 down (includes first month $835) is a good deal or can a person typically do better than the advertised special? What in your opinion would be a good deal right now per month for a 2012 AWD with theater? I appreciate any input.
#284 of 365 Getting Hosed?
Feb 17, 2012 (9:11 pm)
Looking at leasing a QX56 from local dealer. Model is 4x4 with theater package and bench second row.
First, I don't really want the theater package, but the salesman is pushing it on me that they are all being made/sold with it.
Quoted list of $67,420 and sale price of $64,700. With $4500 down for a 39 month lease, with 12,000 miles per year, dealer quoted lease rate of $910/ month plus tax.
Based on the residuals and money factors cited above, this appears about $100/month too high.
Am I mistaken, or am I getting hosed here?

Posting again, as no answers to date on February money factors and residuals. I have now worked a deal and would like an opinion on whether to take it or not.
2012 Qx56 Theater and Wheel packages only
$199 Doc Fee
$700 Infiniti Financial Fee
$1400 Plate Fee
$2500 Trade Credit
39 months, 12,000 per year.
$832 per month including 5.5% tax
How is this deal? Is the $700 Infiniti Financial something ALL dealers charge?
PLEASE let me know CarMan.

Stated dealer cost: $65223
Proposed out of pocket/downpayment: $6135

Any help and/or opinion you can give would be appreciated.
