My Take: Just when we thought the Lexus’ residuals were low, Infiniti’s FX seems to take it one step lower. Unexpectedly, it doesn’t seem like there is any lease support for these vehicles. Lets see what the numbers look like on a FX35 AWD with Tech, Sport and Towing hitch.
- MSRP $48,045
- Invoice $43,769
- Terms in BOLD, below
- Standard inception fees apply, taxes not included.
24 Month Payments: $835 at invoice, $1004 at MSRP
36 Month Payments: $723 at invoice, $852 at MSRP
WOW! this hurts just typing it. The slightly better news is that you can probably get this car for under invoice…how much? Not sure, but Edmunds’ TMV shows around $3200 under invoice (in So Cal). Keep in mind that Edmunds’ TMV varies from zip code to zip code and also takes in consideration purchases, not just leases. Assuming TMV, the payment range is around: $675 for 24 months and $627 for 36 months. That’s much better, but not quite a “deal” since taxes are not included.
