#31 of 567 Pathfinder LE
Apr 26, 2006 (6:31 pm)
I am looking at a Pathfinder LE for 36 months/12K per year. MSRP is 33500 plus 605 dest charge. There is currently 500 customer cash. Invoice is 30982 so I am shooting for a selling price of 31500 inclusive of the dest charge and customer cash. I am in south Florida. Can you give me the money factor/residual on this vehicle and target for no money down lease? Thanks
#32 of 567 IN NEED OF LEASING PRIMER
Apr 27, 2006 (10:37 pm)
After extensive Internet shopping, i'm getting quoted a really good internet price from a Nissan dealer. for a 06 Pathfinder LE + splash guards & body side molding & $605 destination minus $500 manufacturer's rebate for $31,695. the MSRP is $37,985 and the Invoice cost is $33,421.
1) can i still negotiate down from that internet price
2) i want to lease
a) what is this buy rate lease money factor and residual value and do i find this out?
b) are there any benefits to no money down or a low down payment? do you just end up balancing it out with higher monthly payments?
c) are there any benefits to the different length leases? with Nissan's great maintenance scores, one would think one could have the car 60 months with no real maintenance problems.
d) what other costs can i expect at lease time other than what's listed on the Nissan website
i.e. $400 security deposit
First Monthly Payment
$550 Acquisition fee-what is this?
advice would be greatly appreciated.

great price below invoice - where are you located? MSRP seems higher than that quoted on Edmunds though - I'll need to recheck my numbers.

I have Pathfinder MF/residuals for May for 36 months but have been adviused by the salesman that their "best deal" is on a 39 month lease. Anybody have info on this? I'm a little wary because the Pathfinder only has a 36 month warranty.
#37 of 567 Pathfinder SE 36month Lease???
Jun 03, 2006 (8:54 pm)
Just went to a dealer today. Test drove a SE with Comfort&Premium package.
Got a standard 36month lease offer
$339/month with $1999 down at signing. I think this is the special lease offer posted on the Nissanusa.com. (now I can't find it there anymore).
They gave me a very good trade-in price for my old Maxima at $3400. Also I am eligible for the $500 new graduate bonus on top of that. The trade in cash should be able to cover all the money down plus tax, lic, fees, etc (about $1500). So I don't put any money upfront.
Could anyone help me calculate my monthly payment with all these trade-in and bonus?? thanks!!!!!!
The dealer also offered some freebies like free service loaner and free oil changes.

This is NOT a good deal. You SHOULD NOT use your Maxima as a trade in. It is like putting down $3400 in cash. If you drive off the lot in your new car and total your car - it is like throwing the $3400 away.
I would recommend selling your car - putting the cash in the bank and using $100 a mth to put towards your car payment.
The payments with $0 down and your $500 rebate including tax should come to about $415 per mth.
I got a deal in NY for the top of the line SE with leather and comfort and premium package for $409 per mth. That included tax and my 1st mths payment.
By the way a 39 mth deal works out better.
#39 of 567 Thanks for the suggestions.

My Maxima has some body damage on it, so I guest I can only sell it privately for about $3500 maximum. Their high trade-in price made me quite thrilled.
So did you put anymony down for your $409/m deal??

I ended up changing my mind at the last minute and leased the Mercury Mountaineer Premium.
We leased Pathfinders for 9 years (3 different cars) and after seeing the mountaineer and loving it we decided a change was needed.
They told me at Pathfinder they would do it for the $409 no money down - just DMV fees.
I was willing to walk away from the deal if they wanted me to make the 1st payment. I would say that you could get it for $409 with the 1st payment - it was a tough negotiation without the 1st payment.
Good Luck to you - let me know if you have any ????'s.
