Are the Infiniti deals still going? I was looking at a 2WD QX56 that has an MSRP of $53,456. The 3rd party leasing company I used last time is quoting $900+ for a no money down 48 month lease. But when I run the residuals/money factor listed above, I'm seeing a payment around $750 - even here in Texas where we get hit with the full tax amount. (in fairness I went into the last deal with this leasing company uneducated, so I'm sure my file is marked sucker. I am defintely doing my homework this time!)
I'm pretty sure this leasing company isn't working through the Infiniti program, so I'm wondering if I should take my business straight to the dealer. I was about to settle for a 48 month lease on a loaded out Armada LE (that was coming in around $730), but if we can get a QX56 for a shorter lease in the same ballpark......

Yes, the deals are still going. The advertised deal is 659 for an AWD with about 4,200 down. Don't put anything down and you're around the mid sevens, def better to go to dealer program. Let me know how it pans out as I'm in the market to lease one as well.

Hi Car Man
Could you tell me IFS's current money factor and residual for a 2008 QX56 AWD for a 36 or 39 month lease at 12,000 miles?

Ended up getting a 2WD (live in Texas) QX56 with the DVD player. MSRP was $55,075. Cap cost was $49,920. For a 36 month lease through IFS, the residual was 53%, the money factor was .00133. Texas dinges you for the whole sale tax, so my payment was slightly higher than mid 7's, but every close. All that was due was the 1st month's payment and registration fees.

What is your mileage/year?

My deal was a 2008 2WD 15,000 miles per year for 36 months.
The only thing I slight regret was the built-in DVD player. It seems a bit like an afterthought they way it's installed. And since the kids have portable DVD players, I should have opted for a model without one and saved another $25 a month.

Why do you feel the DVD is an afterthought? Just wondering....
Good deal too...that sounds like a good price for 15k/year

In our previous SUV the DVD player was on the roof right in front of the drop down screen as one unit. It let the kids (or whoever was in the back) change the DVD.
The QX56 player is tucked in the front of the center console. Not only does it sort of waste the space in the console, but it requires the front seat passenger to change the DVD's.
While it's just a minor inconvenience, it seems like the unit could have been a bit more tightly integrated with the overhead screen.

Once the DVD is loaded, can you control (fast forward, play, etc) the DVD from the dash? (I know the DVD doesn't play in the dash unless you're in park and the parking brake is on) but I'm wondering if I can control when it plays. The reason I ask is that I have three little ones, way too small to be able to use the controls located up near the screen itself.

I follow you and I agree on not being thrilled at losing center console space, but we actually like having control of the DVD player in the front seat since our daughter is 3 and our other child...well he is still in the "oven". So they're both too young to safely manipulate DVDs in a moving vehicle.
I suppose that best case for us would have been to have the DVD player in the dash (ala the GM SUVs), but having the player attached to the screen would have been the last option for us.
Different needs for different folks!
