My Take: Infiniti has apparently extended their “Three Month Waiver” program to a “Four Month Waiver” program. This offer extends to those who qualify for an new Infiniti purchase or lease (and are currently leasing from IFS). Excess wear and tear and mileage overage fees apply. If you aren’t over your miles, but anticipate being over your miles, you will not be penalized. You basically have to be literally OVER your miles to get hit with penalties. There is also up to $500 in wear and tear waiver, so that’s nice. Remember that the way this works is that IFS will not add any negative equity into your new loan. This can only happen if you stay within the brand. All other cross-brand offers typically involved rolling over negative equity. Those who have a scheduled lease maturity of 11/2/2009 thru 01/01/2010 and have good credit should be able to take advantage of this. Offer expires 9/30/2009.
Lastly, Mercedes Benz has a similar program as well, I believe the current one allows you to turn your car in about 5 months in advance.
