#694 of 1618 A Good Deal on a 2007 Murano
Mar 23, 2008 (6:58 pm)
Hi Car_man, thought I'd give you some info on what I thought was a pretty good lease deal I got on Saturday for an 07 SL FWD Murano with SL Touring Pkg with XM, mats, splash guards, cargo protector, and sunroof deflector. List $35,540. Agreed upon price was invoice less $800 or $31,694. MF of 0.00016 and residual of 46%; 12k/yr for 39 months. Zero down (I have listened to you before on this point). Being in TX, the best part was Nissan paid the tax. My only cost was first payment of $428.98. So, from my perspective, what I read earlier about deals being had on the 07's is true. Hope this helps others looking and not wanting to spend more on an 09. The 07 is still a great drive.
#695 of 1618 Lease on 09 AWD Murano SL
Mar 25, 2008 (11:46 am)
I am debating between the 09 Murano and 08 RDX. I will be leasing and i can lease the rdx for no money down for 36months/12k for less than $500, including tax. I just got this quote from a local Nissan dealer for the Murano...
09 Murano SL AWD with Leather, Tech, Premium and Moonroof packages. Also based on no money down and 12,000 miles/year.
A 36 month lease is going to be $649.39/month and 1st payment due at signing.
Is it just me or is something wrong with these numbers? Don't get me wrong the Murano is a nice vehicle, but it's not $650/ month nice. Any others out there with better pricing for the same model and trim?

That lease payment seems high for the Murano, even with current terrible lease deals on the '09 model. You would need to know what price the Murano was actually calculated at for the lease payment. With the current lease deal on the RDX there is an $1800 reduction from MSRP that's automatically done by the dealer and of course you can negotiate down from that.
You should easily be able to negotiate an RDX without Nav and with no money down for under $500 a month.
As far as the Murano goes, the interest rate (called money factor on a lease) from Nissan is around 6-7% and the residuals are quite poor, around 50% I believe.
RDX and MDX base models both enjoy residuals for 3 yrs 36K miles of around 57-59% currently, which means you are paying for much lease of the vehicles depreciation to drive it for 3 yrs and 36K miles compared to the Nissan car.

The dealerships here are loaded with '09 Murano's, 60 at last check. Quality of ride is very subjective, I personally prefer that of the EX as it is a lower more car like vehicle and is a few hundred pounds lighter, gets better mpg, also.

You might also want to check out the Infiniti FX35, they are dealing on those right now and they have good residuals and MF's.

Thanks for the input all. I would consider the EX if there was more cargo space. I'll probably concentrate on the RDX at this point.

And thats on an SL, what would the LE be, $700.+ I am in the same boat, i am crossed between the murano and the rdx. I just wish the rear seats in the rdx reclined and the rdx had some smoother lines, not so jeep looking.

I hear that. I prefer the room inside the murano over the rdx. Both are luxurious inside and the i'm not a big fan of the exterior of both, but since both fit the bill for us and within our budget, we'll have to pick one. My wife is expecting soon and I just don't have the time to wait for newer models to come out or for the pricing to drop. I'll probably give it another month before I pull the trigger on the RDX, but I wonder if better deals would be available closer to Memorial day. Good luck with your decision.
#702 of 1618 New to Murano and leasing, please help

Hi, we are looking at a 2009 Murano LE, MSRP is $39,920 but the dealer will take $37,500.
Is this a reasonable price? What would good ballpark lease numbers look like, for, say, a 36 or 48 month lease? Zero down is the way to go?
Thanks for helping the newbie!

The new '09 Murano is a poor lease choice at the moment due to low resale value (residual) and high money factor (interest rate) from Nissan. Even at invoice price the monthly lease payment on an LE will be over $600 a month. There are many other upscale mid-size SUVs with much lower monthly lease payment.
If you are really interested in the Murano you might consider purchasing it instead of leasing it, since you will likely get a better interest rate.
