I just leased my 09 Maxima Premium Package Premium Technology from Courtesy in Moline IL. I went in feeling good about the payment and now getting home I am not sure.
Here are the basics and I would really like someone to let me know if I should be bending over. I have been reading this forum for months and felt confident in the $450 monthly payment. I thought I understood all of the numbers before I went in and they as we all know they manipulate the numbers how ever they need to but I think I like my monthly payment.
I have a $450 month payment
Car has premium everything dark slate charcoal interior (navigation,cold package all included)
I also got chrome wheels and the back windows tinted
I traded in my 99 Jeep grand Cherokee that I didnt think it was worth more than 2000 and they gave me 2875.
They showed me invoice and it said $36600 for what that is worth.
I guess now that I am home buyers remorse sets in a little bit.
I paid nothing out the door and 1st month was covered.
According to edmunds it seems as though I got a decent deal but would really like to what you experts out there think.
He said that I got 52% residual with MF of .00076 and he told me that they have to turn in to Nissan the right residual and MF or else paperwork gets returned. Is that really true...that does not seem true to me.
Well that is enough for now...Hope to hear from someone soon.

Not sure of the residual and MF, but I think many have mentioned it in this thread for a 39 month 12k lease.

#483 of 1362 Why 39th month leases when the waranty is only 36 months?
Jul 30, 2009 (9:49 am)
I noticed a lot of people on here are looking at 39 month leases when the basic warranty is only 36 months. That means that if anything happens during the last 3 months of the lease that's not covered by the drive train warranty (which is 5 years/60K miles), then you'll have to pay for it. Even if you try to turn the car in without fixing it, they will probably find out that something isn't working during the pre lease return inspection and then bill you for it. I know that the chances of something happening to the car during the last 3 months of the lease are small but it's worth thinking about.
Here's a link to the warranty info for the Maxima SV.

You could have the same issue if you get a 36 month 15k lease.

That invoice they showed you is about as reliable as an invoice I would show you. There is the "invoice" that they show you and then there is the real invoice that they don't show you.

sam k is correct, Nissan for some reason is trying to push 39 month leases on all their vehicles; all of their commercials on TV and the newspaper do this too; toyota and honda advertisements have been for 36 months; I was at a nissan dealer a few weeks ago and they tried to push the 39 month lease on me and I told them no; leasing 101 states you never lease longer than the warranty period for a car so for Nissan, Toyota, and Honda you never want to lease longer than 36 months and when I told that to the Nissan salesman he didn't say anything; 39 month leases are okay if your leasing an Infiniti, Acura, or Lexus since their warranty is 48 months
#488 of 1362 August Numbers
Aug 09, 2009 (11:04 am)
Anyone have the August money factor and residual numbers?
I'm interested in either 24 or 36 (39?) months for an SV.

I saw an ad recently for a Mazda 42 month lease. Unreal.
