#1611 of 1911 2013 Altima Lease/Maxima Trade questions
Jul 24, 2012 (7:06 am)
I am looking to lease a 2013 Nissan Altima. To do so, I have to get out of my 2010 Maxima lease that has about 9 months left.
I received a letter in the mail from a local dealership giving me trade in offer of $25,500 for the Maxima. This is about $3,000 over what the true trade in value probably should be. I brought the letter to the dealership and they are honoring it. However, they are saying that included in that offer is a tax credit that is built in that should be deducted to get the true offer. So, in New Jersey the tax rate is 7%, so the the true offer is the $25,500 minus 7%. Does this sound right to you? To me it seems like a scam to knock down the offer.
Also, can you provide the residual and money factor the 2013 Nissan Altima SL (36 months/12k miles)? Is it still .002 and 60%?
Thanks for your help with this. I've used the forums for information a lot over the years.

#1614 of 1911 Help on 2013 Lease Information
Jul 30, 2012 (7:19 pm)
Carman - I am interested in a 2013 Nissan Altima Sedan 2.5 SL. As I would like it, the MSRP is $29,920 and the invoice looks to be around $27,300 (with destination fee). I would prefer the 2013 because of the improved MPG.
Can you tell me what the residual percent and lease money factor rates are for the month of August on a 15K miles per year for a 39 month lease term? My lease is up January 8th, but they've offered me 3 months forgiveness off my current lease if I lease again by September 4th and $1000 loyalty cash incentive. I'm trying to figure out if now is the time to make the change. Do you think the 2013 incentives or lease rates will get better later in the year?
Also, I have read that you should negotiate the selling price even on a lease. Can you confirm that is true?
Thank you for helping me.
#1615 of 1911 2012 Altima 3.5 SR Lease
Jul 30, 2012 (8:07 pm)
I just leased a 2012 Altima 3.5 SR w/ sports and premium package and carpet and floor mats for $245/mo +TTL (In Illinois where you have to pay tax on the entire vehicle price and not just the lease term) with $0 down and a $3000 trade in (for a car I've paid nothing for). This is a 39 month lease. Is this a great deal?

Same question here for me as well.
Also, I got a quote on 2012 Altima 2.5SL with a lease term of 39 months 12,000miles/yr
$1000 down with 250/month for the rest of 38 months (TTL included). Can I do better on this one?
Please help Thank you.

Yea you could definitely do better I think. When I was negotiating with them they started out with $0 down and $274 a month but talked them down to $240 with nothing down. Didn't accept the offer right there because we were interested to see how much the insurance would be (came out to $130). Plus with the new 2013 models out and how different they look you would think they'd want to move the 2012 models off the lot as quickly as possible.

Hello Zi Rah,
You got a great deal! Congratulations on your excellent negotiation.
I'm going to lease a 2012 Nissan Altima 2.5s today and I would like to ask you some questoins if you can help me out.
Can you please tell me the specs of the lease for the $240/mo price?
* # miles per year?
* # of months?
* did you mean $0 down for capitalized cost reduction? or literally 0 down? The reason I ask is that most dealers usually want you to pay the following upfront:
- First month payment
- Acquisition Fee (usually ~ $500 an non negotiable)
- Documentation, Registration, License, Tag, and Title Fees (usually ~ $300)
So, I would have thought even for such an awesome deal ($240/mo), that you would still have paid ~ $1040 up front to cover the costs I listed above.
Can you please elaborate on this?
Much appreciated!! Thank you.

Welcome back jknast. I'm glad that you've found this forum so helpful. It sounds like the dealer is playing games with you. There really isn't any magic way for the dealership to get you out of your Maxima lease 9 months early. Chances are if you are getting out of your Maxima that early that you will end up overpaying for your new Altima. You would be better off waiting until you are closer to the scheduled end of your current deal to get something new, if possible. As an added bonus, the deals on the 2013 Altima will likely be significantly better several months from now.
Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Altima SL with 12,000 miles per year are .00200 and 60%, respectively for top tier customers.
