#1359 of 1618 was this fair?
Apr 11, 2010 (5:28 am)
so I went to the dealer trying to trade my 07 murano in. I have 29K miles - lease is up in June .. car is a sL awd , leather, keyless sunroof, in excellent condition... guy at nissan said my car was as clean as the new one I test drove. I test drove 2010, sL fwd leather, moonroof - no tech package. THey appraised my car - told me I had equity. THey finally told me that they appraised mine at 21,500. My payoff is 19 something. THey would not use the equity in my car to lower the downpayment on the 2010... is that fair? Then they started telling me that I was quoted the wrong price on the 2010 car - that I was quoted a base price, not the sL. He showed me the lease book, which showed 2999 down and 349 a month.. whichi would have been okay with me if they lowered the downpayment. he kept telling me that the awd was worth less than the fwd -- which I didn't understand. i ended up leaving. THis was victory nissan in chesapeake va. at this point I've pretty much decided to keep my car and pay it off -- it really is in exc condition and doesn't get used much. But I also would have been happy to trade for the 2010. Any thoughts on how to do that?

If they appraised your car at 2k over buyout, have them cut you a check for the difference. You can get that trade in equity from any dealer any car. Shop other brands. I'd look at the mazda5, hyundai tuscon and sante fe.
#1361 of 1618 Is this a good deal ?
Apr 16, 2010 (6:13 pm)
2010 AWD SL, tech/ leather / moonroof/ nav
Some nissan cash + 750
Admin + 240
Nissan Discount -1000
Final price = 35,990
Down $1500 (covers tax + 1st payment etc etc), Lease for 39 months, 15k miles
Without the 1500 down payment, Lease for 39 months, 15k miles
Residual is ~$21900
What should I be aiming for? I want to get the number to around 475 with 1500 down. Is that do-able?

The problem that you have is that your amortization ( payment) schedule is based on a final price that is too high. It really should based on somewhere around $33,000 to $34,000 in my opinion, even with the AWD, Tech, and Nav ( the other stuff pretty much everyone gets on their SLs.) Have you checked trucar or edmunds and run what the pricing might look like? Check it out.
#1365 of 1618 final offered price of 515/month
Apr 19, 2010 (6:46 pm)
Ok, after much back and forth with multiple dealers, I got a final payment of $515 (including tax, i.e. the actual payment is 485.00 (tax is $30) with $1500 down, 39M, 15k, final price of 34,900.
515/m also includes 3 years of free oil change, tire rotation and service.
The "great price" on Truecar for the configured vehicle is 35,434.

No, that was in Brooklyn, NY.
Yes, premium package, leather, moonroof, Navigation and free maintenance for the life of the lease...

Its exactly a deal like mine. Only i paid $2500 out of pocket and you are paying a $1000 less (which makes a payment extra $25 a month)
I say it's a good deal
What color are you getting?
I wanted a black/beige leather one, but they forced a silver/black leather one on me

Well, here is a recent negotiation result for an LE AWD:
- Murano model puchased: Brillian Silver Murano LE AWD
- Purchase Date 3-31-2010 (by design )
- Vehicle Options:
Roof Rail Cross Bars
- Total MSRP: $40,010
- Purchase price paid or lease rate negotiated (before tax, etc): $34,100
- Financed 60 Mo. 2.9%
So this is a fully loaded LE AWD and you are negotiating for a fully loaded SL AWD plus nav. I dunno - what do you think?
