July 2008 Lease Rate for 08 Infiniti FX35

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.

  1. Any idea on rates for the 2009 FX35, saw a $449 lease offer on a $50k MSRP 2009, not sure what the deal involved…thanks

  2. P: I don’t have the August numbers for the 09 FX so I cannot validate the deal. However, I find it highly unrealistic that a $50k suv will go for only $449 without any major cap cost reduction (down payment). If you check other models in the Infiniti lineup, like EX, you’ll see that even a $43k model requires at least $500 a month with just inception fees, and that’s with a special low money factor.

  3. Hi M! If you got it with just inception fees of around $2000, $675 a month is a mighty fine deal! Congrats!
