2013 and earlier Volkswagen Tiguan Lease Questions



  • jessy1jessy1 Posts: 13
    I want to lease a tiguan SE 4 motion with sunroof and navigation. 36 months, 12 k per yr. I can work with 10 if it comes down to it because I am feeling desperate.
    I am bad with numbers and no one is helping me. I have also learned from past leases that focusing on only monthly payments and not the residual at end of lease was stupid. Can someone calculate what I should be paying/a fair price for em? I would be so grateful! I can't do all these confusing math problems.
    Also it is freezing and snowy in Boston and end of month so I would like a decent deal.
    Thank you so much.

  • That is indeed correct, jc_hills. In many cases, Volkswagen's money factors are significantly lower than BMW's.

  • Here's the information that you're looking for jake134. Volkswagen Credit's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 Tiguan SE 4WD with 12,000 miles per year are .00016 and 64% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are .00016 and 57%.

    If you were to lease with only 10,000 miles per year, this vehicle's residual values would be 1% higher.

  • Hi Jessica. I would be happy to work up a lease payment on this vehicle for you. You never mentioned what selling price you are shooting for, so I will have to make an assumption.

    According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2013 Tiguan SE 4Motion with sunroof and navigation that has an MSRP of $31,925 and a selling price of $31,000 through VW Credit right now for 36-months with 12,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $364, assuming that you qualify for its top credit tier.

    This should give you an idea of what sort of pre-tax payment to shoot for. Good luck and let us know if you have any other questions.

  • Hi - looking at my first lease deal. I think I've done my homework but would love to know thoughts of those more experienced...including recommended negotiation points. According to dealer, this is for January (1 day left) only. Here's the detail for a 2013 Tiguan SEL. Many thanks!!!

    MSRP = 36,235
    Adjusted Cap Cost = 33,951
    Money Fator = .00016
    Term = 36mo/12K
    $0 down
    Residual = 55%
    Monthly Payment = $398 (plus tax = $426)
  • Hi - wanted to report back, wound up with a little better deal once they officially pulled credit and because I conceded to taking the silver one off the lot (vs ordering a black one)

    Can't recall all exact components but here's some info:

    Tiguan SEL
    Money factor .00001. (Offered something about dealer buying points for high credit?)
    Residual 57% (not sure, just remember it went up from prior)
    Price 31,900 (not sure again, don't have papers in front of me)

    $345 month ($370 after tax)
    0 down
    1st month paid, so 35 payments


    I didn't see a better deal so I signed. Best offer from another dealer was $465/month with 2,000 down. Joke.

    Had an amazing dealer experience.

    Also, I stumbled into these forums because I was curious abt credit scores needed for leases. When I checked mine, it was equifax and good but vw used transunion which returned higher and allowed for a better money factor. Best of luck to all around. PM me if you are in the mkt for a 2006 A4 (ne fl).

    That looks like a great deal... Is that FWD or AWD?

    The lease on my CC will be expiring in a couple of months and I'm looking to get a Tiguan. CarMan can you give me the info I need for February? (ie. money factor, residual, incentives, etc)

    I also received a $500 coupon for attending and speaking to a VW rep at the local new car show. How would that factor in here?? Also, how are the options (mats, climatronic, passenger seat) figured in? Are those added to the cap cost? I added them to it in my numbers below. What about the destination fee? Is it figured in to the MSRP or just something I can pay at signing?

    Here is the vehicle I found that I would like to lease. I will be doing a 3yr lease with 10k miles/year.

    2013 Volkswagen Tiguan 4WD 4dr Auto SE w/Sunroof & Nav - Wild Cherry Metallic
    -floor mats
    -manual passenger seat

    Here's where I'm at so far. If I use January's info (58% residual and MF .00016) and I'm going to be shooting for the True Market Value I found on Edmunds which is $31,458 + $241 (climatronic) + $185 (Tiguan mat kit) - $150 (manual passenger seat) + $825 (destination fee) = $32,606.

    With those numbers in mind I figured the cap cost should be $31,734. With a money factor of .00016 and residual of 58% I should have a pre-tax payment of $351.73 for 36 months ($382.51 w/tax). I'd only like to pay the destination and 1st payment at signing which would be $1207.51

    None of this includes the $500 coupon I have because I didn't know where it factored in.

    Does this sound feasible?

    Hi everyone,

    Looking to get my daughter her first car. I would like to lease the vw tiguan with the 2.0t SE no sunroof or nav. 36 months. They want me to put 1900 down and 365/month tax included and it comes with 12,000 miles. Great credit. Am I getting robbed? Thx in advance
  • The dealer sent me the lease worksheet and I'm trying to make sense of why our numbers don't match. The first thing I see is how the depreciation is calculated. When I look at the Edmunds site it says to subtract residual from cap cost. Now I thought the cap cost was the agreed upon cost of the car?! But maybe its not that simple. Because the agreed upon price is $31,791. However on this worksheet it says adjusted cap cost $33,115.56. The $33,115 is coming from the agreed upon price + acquisition fee - amount paid in cash. $31,791 + $625 - $569.11 = $32,416. there is something else that doesn't add up. What's on the worksheet and how the numbers actually add up are different by around $1,200. Maybe I'm overlooking something here?!?

    Is there anyone around that can help me make sense of this? I was hoping to go shopping tomorrow. :D

    Ohh and it looks like the money factor is now .00066 or at least that is what's on my worksheet. That extra .0005 actually makes a pretty big difference in the monthly payment. A $27/month difference in my case.

  • Hi talon4x4. Volkswagen Credit's February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Tiguan SE with Sunroof, Navigation and 10,000 miles per year are .00016 and 58% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    When negotiating your deal on this truck, make sure to take advantage of the $500 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of it.

    If I was in the market for this vehicle, I personally would shoot for a selling price of $500 to $1,000 over the invoice price that is listed here (preferably towards the lower end) minus the $500 lease cash minus the $500 coupon that you have if it's from the manufacturer.

  • Hi chillyal. It would be much easier for us to evaluate this deal if you were able to provide us with this truck's MSRP and selling price. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Without this number, it is more difficult to tell how large a dealer discount you are being given an in turn if there is any room left to negotiate.

Also would appreciate if others can tell me what they are being quoted for 2013 Tiguan SEL FWD with 12K miles/year lease. Any additional info is appreciated. Thx

    Got a Tiguan SE 2WD (without nav/sunroof) for my wife tonight in Central FL. Pretty smooth process completed totally via e-mail. Selling price was $26,530 + fees. (Here in FL most dealers charge a "dealer fee" of $599-$799. This dealer charged $579 which is one of the lower ones around.) It's just a game and as long as you can get to at least $600 or so below invoice before any rebates, it's basically a wash. Payment for 36 mo/12k miles came to $325 (including tax) and all I paid up front was the 1st payment. Wife turned in a Jetta that had 5 months left on the lease and they basically bought it for the pay-off amount which was slightly more than what Kelley BB said the trade-in would be worth, but they made up the difference to do the deal. Oh - and they threw in the mat kit. Overall, I think it was a pretty good deal.

    Picked up a 2013 White-Gold Metallic Tiguan last weekend. Figured I'd share my info here. Its an SE with 4motion, navigation, sunroof, leather, winter floor mats, mud/splash guards, window etching and first aid kit. The terms are 10k/year on a 3 year lease. We used our $500 auto show coupon and the $500 lease cash. I believe the MSRP was a bit above $34,000. My wife isn't home so I don't have the paperwork with the exact breakdown but here is an overview.

    We are paying $390/month (8.75% tax included) and had $1000 due at signing.

    I'm really happy with that deal. Thanks CarMar for posting the info, it was a real help!!

    Thanks chillyal :). That's how I always negotiate a lease. I negotiate the lowest possible selling price for the vehicle that I want and then have the dealer calculate my payment using its buy rate lease money factor. That assures me of getting the best possible deal.

    As far as the Escape goes, it certainly will be a whole lot cheaper to lease than the Tiguan. All things being equal I'd rather have the Tig, but it's definitely going to cost a little more. Traditionally VW trucks have been overpriced to lease, but the deals on them have been getting better.

    Hi jt401. Volkswagen Credit's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Tiguan SEL FWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00002 and 54% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Volkswagen is currently providing a $2,000 cash incentive on leases of this truck through VW Credit. Make sure to take this cash into account when negotiating the capitalized cost for your lease.
