#587 of 603 Leasing a 2013 Pathfinder
Aug 25, 2013 (6:52 pm)
I currently own a 2009 Nissan Altima and I am interested in getting on board the lease train with a Pathfinder SL or Platinum 4WD. The dealer said he could get me $12,000 back for the Altima. What are some realistic numbers for what I could expect to pay for a 3-year lease for the SL or the Platinum? I'd really like to get the full trade-in value back and make higher monthly payments rather than put that money towards a down payment on a lease. Any thoughts are welcome!!!

#589 of 603 Request for September lease rates

Hi Car Man,
We are interested in leasing a 2014 SL Pathfinder (or a Platinum trim) for 3 years with 12,000 miles. Can you please tell me the residuals and money factors for September? We are in Maryland in the Washington, DC metro area.
Also, are they still leasing 2013 models? If so, can you please provide those lease rates as well.

MF is .00175 for all trims..
SL 4X4 has a residual of 56%... Subtract 2% for Platinum or 4X2... subtract 4% for both...
2013 model is .00038 and 52%... Subtract 1% for Platinum.... 2% for 4X2.. or 3% for both..
#591 of 603 Is this a good deal?

We have never leased before but my wife doesn't keep cars longer than a few years so we are going to give it a try this time and see how it works. We went up to the dealership this weekend and bartered down to the following:
2014 Pathfinder Platinum 2x4
We are trading in her 2008 Yukon (tired of poor MPG and no room):
Trade in Allowance: 19115
Payoff: 14447 (is actually 14027, I misquoted the payoff to them accidentally)
Payment w/ tax: 565
We walked because I was tired of him going back and forth and I had to get home to watch a football game. When we left the "finance manager" said asked how far off he was and I told him I want to be closer to $500 (their first offer was $607). He told me it wasn't going to happen.
I am I dreaming or can they do better?

Your residual is $22139.1 and your cap cost looks like $38,410. Cap cost is about $5,000 positive equity off MRSP($43,410). Monthly depreciation(36 month) is about $452.00. Finance charge is about $81.00. Assuming 6% sales tax your payment would be about $565.00.
Some clarification is needed, is ACV the real value of the Yukon and trade in allowance an extra $3,100 added to this? What up front fees are needed?

Nothing upfront. Correct on the extra added to trade in

I would find out by Kelly's blue book, NADA, and e-bay motors what the going rate is for your Yukon. I would also find out the invoice of the pathfinder and work my way from this number for a cap cost rather than MRSP. Take $5,000.00 of the invoice number.
