#483 of 1376 Why 39th month leases when the waranty is only 36 months?
Jul 30, 2009 (8:49 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

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.

Wow that is unreal and some people will be suckered into these leases that are longer than the warranty period; got to feel sorry for them!

You're very welcome, looking4maxima. Let's double check the info. Here's the latest:
Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp.'s current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Maxima SV with 15,000 miles per year are .00076 and 53%, respectively. The 53 number appears to be correct.
