#418 of 583 Current Incentives and Lease Factors for 2010 EX35
Jan 05, 2010 (3:29 pm)
I have an '08 EX35, and my 24-month lease comes up in March. I love the vehicle, and am looking at leasing a 2010 EX. I'll do Journey with Nav, but not the funky technology package.
What are the current incentives, money factors and residuals that Infiniti is offering for Jan on the 2010's? I may do it this month, rather than wait, if I can get a deal.

I've got an '08 EX35 Journey w/ the Tech package & Navi and I love it - what's your problem with it?

I love the Navi, hard drive, rear view monitor, but don't need nor want all the other stuff like collision avoidance, lane departure, etc. And I'm turning in the '08 to get a new '10!
#421 of 583 YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PUT ANY MORE DOWN FOR A LEASE
Jan 06, 2010 (5:38 pm)
Even if the advertised cost of a lease stipulates that you will have to put down so much money --- usually with taxes and fees additional --- no leasing company I know of requires you to put down one dollar.
Instead, after you negotiate the sale price of the vehicle --- then consider the residual (60% for an EX-35 2010 10,000 mile vehicle now) and the money factor (interest, found by multiplying by 2400) --- you can decide to roll over all this negotiated price and fees and taxes into monthly payments.
I just did that with the leasing of an EX-35 at a tad above invoice, offered no money whatsoever --- not even first monthly payment---- and signed the lease for 36 months.
Even if you have a trade-in, you do not have to use that money to reduce the monthly payment UNLESS you want to.
I do have a tip: it's worth while to pay the price of wear-and-tear insurance --- which for 36 months and 10,000 miles cost about $830 --- unless you are certain your vehicle will be immaculate when you turn it in.
That insurance covers dings, small dents, and torn leather seats ---- the latter especially vulnerable if you have a dog and let it ride in the car. Otherwise you may face large arbitrary turn-in fees that far exceed the insurance cost. And that cost can also be rolled into the monthly fees. (Whether the insurance cost could be negotiated downward --- probably it could be --- is up to you.. Frankly, I've never understood why people buying a $35,000 - $45,000 or more vehicle fret over two or three hundred dollars . . . must be a matter of gamesmanship.)
Hope these tips help you. By the way, the new EX-35 is a superb vehicle, and my only quibble is that on the worn surfaces of California highways --- even if blacktopped over composite surfaces --- the road noise from the Michelin tires (17 inch) is fairly high.
I had the same trouble with a 2006 Acura MDX with Michelin off-road tires, and switching to Continental tires reduced the road noise by about 30% or so --- noticeably so in any case. That vehicle I bought though. The leased ex-35 is another matter, and I'll wait until 1000 miles or so our on the tires and see whether the new tracking is less noisy. (The ex-35 engine is slightly noisier than the MDX's, but is still decent on that score. And the wind noise is pretty low too, though not the noise from other cars in the lanes near you . . . anyway, as low on that count as I'[d lie. But all the other qualities of the car are what they have been touted to be . . . so far anyway.)

just FYI on the deal i have just got tonight.
I've been shopping for a EX35 since Oct 2009. after 3 months finally closed the deal tonight.
here is what I've finally got.
2010 EX 35 Journey RWD
Bose & Around View Monitor Pkg
Platinum Graphite Metallic
Online price $35,986 - $3000 = $32,986
Final Price I've paid: $32,500 + TTL (got another $200 credit for some mistake they have made)
so...I think it was pretty decent deal, happy with it.
Originally i wanted to get the 2010 EX 35 + Bose & around view + Premium + 18" wheel = MSRP: $41,265
Best offer i got on that was $34500, not bad either. but the problem was that it was hard to find a 2010 Ex35 with Navi, and Premium package. there was like one that matched the color I wanted in the whole Greater LA ara. so I finally gave that up.
ya...hope this info help all you EX35 shoppers. BTW, this was from a Dealer in So Cal area.
Good Lucky to you all!

Best price for you is not the "best price" for me

Jan 12, 2010 (10:38 pm)
Tired of negotiating with different dealers and pulled my trigger today.
2010 EX35 journey AWD with Bose/AV package and splash guards.
What I paid is $34200.
I also got wheel locks for my EX35, not sure if every dealer does it.
Do no know if this is a good deal but it doesn't matter as long as I like it.
Hope this helps.

not a bad deal.
that's a pretty good price already, even if you try to push harder, u might only save another 200 to 300, but there is no guarrantee they will give another 200 to 300. just that you might, if u get lucky.
