Most everyone who knows leasing would tell you to take the 8k trade as a cash check from the dealer and put it in the bank. Use it to supplement your higher monthly payments. This way you have no equity in the lease should the vehicle be totaled. If not -- make sure you have gap insurance to cover what you put down. I think nissan includes it in their leases.

jayrider-you may have misunderstood. I still have a loan balance on my trade of $8357. I couldn't do what you suggested, thought I fully understood what you were getting at.

#1187 of 1598 disposition fee
Oct 18, 2009 (6:31 am)
I signed a deal last night and didn't notice the dealer stuck in a $395 disposition fee. When I went back they were closed. I haven't picked up the murano yet. Can I get them to take it off before delivery?
By the way my deal was:
2009 Murano sl awd, leather premium, 360 package.
3k at signing, $399 per month 39 months tax incl in NJ
deal wasn't as good as my 06 with the money factor being the difference. Best was .00164

Most leases now have disposition fees.. It is a requirement of the bank that writes the lease, and likely isn't a negotiable item with the dealer...
Until you actually take delivery, you can always stop the deal.. But, you aren't likely to get that item changed.

Hi Car Man,
I was curious. My credit score was 784 but when the dealer ran the money factor I saw he had me in a range of 700-739 with a money factor of .00164. he said the top two score levels got the same money factor. Don't they give a better credit score a lower money factor?
Would I be able to do better than .00164 with a 784 credit score?
#1190 of 1598 2009 Nissan Murano SL AWD 360 Package
Oct 18, 2009 (5:46 pm)
Can someone tell me if this is a decent deal in NYC.
2009 Nissan Murano SL AWD 360 Package ( Lease )
around $3,800 total out of pocket
$409 a month
39 month lease
12k miles per yr.
The dealer was charging an 800 destination charge fee, is this fee normal?

My understanding is that disposition fee is charged only at the end of the lease if you don't get another vehicle from nissan, at least thats what the finance guy told me. I don't know how that works if you choose to buy the vehicle at lease end.

The $800 destination fee is normal. When you price the car, its already included as part of the MSRP.
What are the deatils of the deal? What was the MSRP and what was the selling price?
Here's what i ended up getting. Murano Sl With the usual Packages. MSRP $35,925
12k, 39months, $398 a month, $3300 total out of pocket. Now looking back, i could have done a little better on the monthly payment i think. Here's why. After looking over the lease i realized they capitalized the acquision fee so that adds a few dollars. In fact that changed the price of the car that we agreed on. This was our first lease so we learned a bit and next time will be more careful.
Make sure they give you the full rebate amount, right now it should be $1250.
