#104 of 298 Need help on JX35 AWD Premium package
Nov 24, 2012 (12:23 pm)
Hello Car Man, hopefully you can help. Its been many years since I leased and looking for help and found this site to be very helpful. I am looking to lease a 2013 JX AWD with premium package. I live in the south shore of Long Island and with the hurricane and loss of so many cars, dealers not being aggressive on car prices as they are flying off their shelves. Most dealers dont provide transparency very easily. I got Legacy Infinity to quote me 57% residual and money factor of .001260 (3.02%). I am being offered $620 per month, 39 month, 0 down, all in which still sounds high. I have top tier credit. I was told this is $1700 over dealer invoice. Can someone please help on whether this is good or bad. This is the best I have so far with other dealers not even providing any transparency (ex. massapequa infinity).

I was looking at a JX AWD with premium package and blind spot assist. Dealer quoted me $499.00 a month pre-tax, with zero down, and only needed 1st month and motor vehicle fees. I do not know the details/breakdown of the lease. Personally I did not like the pickup of this vehicle very sluggish on acceleration. This is in contrast to other infiniti models which have amazing acceleration. Hope this helps. The dealer had alot of inventory in the back lot. Located in South Florida.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm not seeing prices anywhere near what you have described in New York area but I suspect the hurricane has something to do with that. I am not in a rush and will wait out hoping for some december year end clearance sales to kick in. Your feedback is spot on. I did some research on edmunds: http://www.edmunds.com/infiniti/jx/2013/road-test.html
This vehicle is for my wife and she needs the 3rd row so we will sacrifice some performance for the other stated benefits and price is pretty good. It appears that performance trade off is by design and fuel economy is pretty good. Thank you again and if someone gets a good price, please do post as I"m hoping to buy this at a fair price.

I would contact other dealers going out to a radius of at least 100 miles. Try Ramsey NJ infiniti or even Denville NJ infiniti. Look on other dealers websites to see if the vehicle with the packages you want and even color is available. I believe there is a Thanksgiving incentive that may be available as the dealer I went to was going to give me another $500.00 dollars off. I assume you test drove the JX, but I would test drive it with as many people as you can. We had 3 Adults and one child and It was sluggish. I was doing city driving needing to make quick moves and had concerns . My wife did not want to test drive after I was done. Better drive in the sports mode than eco mode.

I'm sure that you have been through a lot lately, schojar. I hope that you and your family are safe after the big storm. That's the most important thing.
I don't know if you lost a vehicle in the storm, but if you did you are eligible to receive employee pricing on all Infinitis. That would provide you with a good price without the need to haggle.
I don't think that this dealer is being unreasonable with you. The selling price that you were quoted isn't terrible and the money factor is spot on.
If you aren't eligible for employee pricing you should probably shoot for a selling price of $500 to $1,000 or so over invoice. You can always go out of area if you have the time and local dealers aren't willing to negotiate. You can look up this vehicle's dealer invoice price over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.
As far as this truck's lease program goes, Infiniti Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39-month lease of a 2013 JX35 AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00126 and 57%, respectively.

Thank you CarMan. Kindly provide factor/residual for 39month/12k. Thankfully, I didn't lose any cars in hurricane so no discount there but thats okay. Thanks to this site, I found out that I'm eligible for a Type A discount through end of November as my employer is qualified for discount with Nissan. This takes the entire haggling out of the equation and I can get below invoice due to Type A rate. After november end, it goes to Type C discount which is still good. I'm hoping that december will have some year end sales and lets hope for that. Since I don't have to worry about price of car any more, I simply need to negotiate a fair Lease rate which carman indicates, I'm being offered and ensure I'm not getting charged unreasonable bank fees, etc. Hoping to purchase this car in december but will do another test drive based on very helpful feedback from mlevine.
Thank you All.

These forums have been helpful so want to let ppl know my lease deal in SoCal:
- 2013 JX w/ premium, roof rails, kick plates and maple accents
- 39 month lease w/12K miles - $513 per month before tax
- Drive off cost was first months payment only and zero down
- MF and residual % is what car man has posted for November
Got the car slightly under invoice and they took back my FX as is even though I had some excess wear and tear
Hope that helps...

What dealership did you find the JX with maple accents? The one I have been dealing with does not have them available. I did find this deal:
-FWD, Premium Package w/ Cargo Package and Illuminated Kick Plates
-39 month lease
-$0 down plus drive-offs
-$499/mo (12,000 miles) or $520 (15,000 miles)

I also tried a infiniti dealer in west haven, their quote was higher though. Devan infiniti said 479/mo if i put 4k down for the jx with premium package. the west haven one said 491/mo with the same specs and model.
