Thanks for all the infos. This is my first time to lease a car. So I don't have a lot ideas about payment calculation and neogtiate the price.
so far the number I got for SE 4WD with comfort&premium package, 39month 12k/year lease
0.0005 money factor
but the final price $1000 over invoice, which deal claims the promotion price and cash back is not for lease.
So right now, I am playing with all 3 nissan dealers in my area to see the best offer. I don't really have any experience working with the dealers, it is quite painful. I will post my final numbers when I cut the deal.

It is VERY Painful. $1,000 over invoice is not good.
The lease price that I got on a mercury mountainer was $400 below invoice.
#43 of 553 How about this deal??

Used carsdirect.com, they helped me to locate this deal
2006 Pathfinder SE 4WD with comfort&premium package.
This is the price after the $500 new college graduate bonus
$600 out of your pocket at signing
$357 + tax = $389

that deal is so much better than the one you listed before!! I say go for it.
The only way it would be better would be to roll the $600 into the payment - making it about $405 per mth. If the dealer is willing to do that then i would definitely do it.
What state are you in???
I just had an e-mail "argument" with a dealer in LI who claimed he would have given me that lease deal for $397, no money down.

I am in Seattle, Wa. There are 4 nissan dealers within 20 miles to where I live. So I guess there is some competition going on.

#47 of 553 Are leases good?
Jun 15, 2006 (1:57 am)
I am new to leasing, so I need someone's help. My husband and I just purchased a 2006 Pathfinder SE for $25,895. We bought their extended service plan and they threw in lo jack. We put $600 down and we traded two vehicles. The reason for trading is that we had negative equity...about $2000. Our payments are $448 since we had $0 down, neg equity, and service plan. The residual (?) is around $14,400. Is this a good deal, or did we get majorly screwed?
#48 of 553 Damage protection program for $499??
Jun 15, 2006 (9:42 pm)
I already set down the price of a 2006 pathfinder SE with the dealer. Now the final option the dealer offers me a the damage protection program for $499. This is my first time to lease a car, so I have not idea about it.
The deal told me that this damage protection will let me walk away the car hassle free when return the car at the end of lease. No charges for any damage on the car's interior or exterior.
Is it worth to buy it?? Or how much do you guys usually get charged for regular damage???
thank very much.
#49 of 553 Pathfinder LE lease
Jun 18, 2006 (8:46 am)
These boards are great - thanks to CArman and posters. Picked up an LE with XM,mats, wind deflector (MSRP 34775) 39mo/12K lease for 440/mo which includes 6% FL sales tax. Wrote a check for 440 to get the keys, all other fees rolled in. No security/disposition. A little trouble getting the color combo that I wanted but finally succeeded. Did it all via email - much better than going in person! Dealt with several dealers in So Fla, 3 agreed to the price but only one had the vehicle. 3 other dealers let me walk at that price (they wanted around 470 for that lease configuration) so I think I did OK, they made some money and I am certainly satisfied.
One funny thing - we also looked at an Explorer EB, similarly equipped had an MSRP about 2k higher but Ford has 3500 lease cash. Still, best deal I could make was 90/mo higher with everything rolled in. Kind of incredible - Ford dealers were much less willing to make a deal than Nissan, even when you show them the numbers.
Anyway, thanks to all, good luck.

Hi Dave. You absolutely should negotiate your vehicle's selling price before discussing its monthly payment. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were financing or paying cash for them. Negotiate as low a selling price as possible and then have the dealer that you are working with calculate your Pathfinder's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor. If you provide me with a detailed description of the Pathfinder that you want along with how long you want to lease it for and how many miles per year you need to be able to drive it, I would be more than happy to give you an idea of what its current lease program should be like.
