There are advantages to both, but no difference in maintenance or operating costs. Generally, leases are better for those who drive up to 15,000 miles each year, take excellent care of their vehicles, and want a new car every two to four years. With a lease, you only have to pay for that portion of the car''s life that you use. Buying is ideal if you drive a lot of miles, put your vehicle to heavy or rough use, and want to build equity. You can also sell, customize or trade your Nissan if you wish when you own the vehicle.
NMAC only offers leases for new Nissan vehicles. However, your local Nissan dealer may offer pre-owned leases.

It depends on a number of factors, including the vehicle model, year and condition. You can also get a general idea of your car's worth by checking independent car value guides. However, a vehicle survey by your Nissan dealer is always necessary to determine the final trade-in value.

Live by a realistic budget. Let your budget be your guide to spending, not your credit limit. Make timely payments at or above your minimum required payment. Don't overextend yourself. Maintain steady employment. Keep close track of your expenditures and your bills to guard against credit fraud. If you plan on making a major purchase on credit, order a copy of your credit report beforehand and review it for negative entries that might need to be resolved.
You will receive a billing statement each month instead of a coupon book.

After the credit approval, NMAC will send the applicant a Transfer of Equity Agreement to sign and add the applicant to your contract.

Your payment amount is determined by the sum of the Rent Charge and the depreciation and any amortized amounts over the term of the lease. Except in the case of a single-payment lease, these amounts are totaled and divided by the Lease Term. Any applicable monthly taxes are then added.
It is possible that your last payment was not applied to your account before the billing statement was mailed. Statements are mailed 21 days prior to your due date each month. Please verify with your bank if the payment has cleared. If it has cleared, please contact Customer Service Department at (800) 777-7018, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Central Time.
Yes. If your Nissan is financed with NMAC, you can make secure online lease payments to your NMAC account by electronic check or credit card through BillMatrix. This low-cost service is fast and easy. Click here to make a payment now.
NMAC is obligated to report any payment received more than 30 days past the due date. A late fee does not necessarily indicate your outstanding payment has been reported.
If you have paid more than your regular monthly payment, any funds remaining after the interest and principal is satisfied is applied toward your unpaid principal balance. You may also gain the benefit of this additional amount reducing the amount of your next monthly payment. If your payment is less than the regular monthly payment the difference due will be added to your next monthly payment.
