#175 of 1376 How does 1,500 rebate apply to Lease?
Mar 22, 2007 (9:01 am)
Currently there is a $1,500 rebate on the 2007 Nissan SL Maxima. I am being told by the dealer that this does NOT apply to negotiations regarding the price of the car in the context of leasing. Is this true or not? I am also looking to lease this car for 36 months, but am being told that 42 is the "best" value right now. Does this have any merit?
What is a good monthly price I can expect for a 30,900 MSRP 2007 Maxima SL with negotiated (hopefully) price of 27000? I live in NY, where tax is (I think) 8.65%. Residual for 36 months = 54%, money factor, from what I gather, is .00259. When I plug these numbers into a calculator I wrote (based on Car_MAN's formula), I get $360 a month (with nothing down). Are any of my numbers unreasonable or wrong one way or another? Please advise

I'm going tonight to a dealer and I need help with some numbers.
What can I expect to pay for a 2007 Maxima SE MSRP 35,255, hopefully final sales price of $31,000, for 24 months, with $1500 down and 12k/ a year. I'm in Florida and the sales tax is 7%. My credit is excellent and I'm a recent college graduate.
My other question: is the $1500 cash back being offered by Nissan applicable to a lease?

Car_man or anyone? Can you please help with question #175? How does the 1500 rebate offered by Nissan reflected (if at all) in negotiating a price? I was told by 2 dealership that it cannot be used at all, but something tells me that they can get something from it (which means I can use it in negotiations). This would be really helpful, thanx
#181 of 1376 Nissan Owner/Leasee Loyalty
Apr 02, 2007 (7:14 am)
Hello! I just recently came upon these forums and they have changed the way I look at cars! Thank you!
I have a 2004 Nissan Murano SL AWD.. pretty much loaded up. Its on a lease 400 a month... didnt put any money down, 15k per year, 42 months (52,500 miles total). I still have a year left on the lease, but am quickly approaching my mileage limit (ALREADY). The payoff is still around $23,000.
My question is, does Nissan offer any type of loyalty discounts or considerations when buying or leasing another Nissan vehicle? I'm thinking about getting into a Maxima and I think, taking my current vehicle out of consideration, I can lease a 2007 SE with drivers preferred for around $400 a month, $0 down, 15k per year for only 2 years. I've seen similar deals recently. The question is, is Nissan likely to let me turn in my lease early if I lease or buy another Nissan vehicle?! Or am I just crazy?! Haha. Thanks all!
#182 of 1376 My First Car - 2007 Maxima SE Lease
Apr 12, 2007 (7:27 pm)
Carman, I'd like to know your 2 cents on this lease deal. This is my first car.
2007 MAXIMA 3.5 SE 4DR CVT
Driver Preferred Package
Selling Price: $30,028.00
24 months, 15k miles
$399.05/month including tax ($370.35/month pre-tax)
$0 down payment
$1500.00 out of pocket = includes 1st months payment, acq. fee of $595, and registration fee of $???
It appears that the registration fee is close to $965???
Do you think there's more room to negotiate on the selling price? I don't know what the invoice price is on this car. This was based on an internet quote from the fleet manager. I have not directly negotiated the price on the phone yet.
Although I requested it, the fleet manager did not give me the money factor or residual percentage.

Remedy~ Let me know if your deal went down. I'm looking for something similar here in my state, but the dealers are playing hard. Brian

My guess is they are hiding a capital cost reduction in the registration fee number. Probably around 650 or so. He probably did that to get you below $400. Whats the odds his numbers came out to 399 on their own! Did you ever mention wanting to be under 400? The deal sounds decent, you could probably negotiate away most of the 965. Or ask for another 30 off the monthly, and meet in the middle somewhere.
OR MAYBE...it was an "honest" mistake or misunderstanding? Perhaps the 965 includes the tax UP FRONT. So if you pay 399 the 965 would be reduced by almost 700 dollars. Call him and ask about the tax first, to be sure..Otherwise try to beat it down a bit more until/unless you are happy!
