    any idea when dealers will be getting the 2009's in stock? no dealer tell me the same thing. the addition of more standard features to the R and package options makes the 09 a much better buy.

    Hi fasanfamily. Unfortunately, Volvo is not currently running a special lease program on the C30. As a result, if you were to lease one through Volvo Finance, you would have to use its standard lease program...which is absolutely terrible. Volvo Ffinance's standard buy rate lease money factor is currently a whopping .00454. This is equivalent to an interest rate of nearly 10.9% :surprise: . They obviously don't want to lease this car to anyone.

    You could lease one through an independent bank instead, if one is willing to step up to the plate, but independent banks have slowly been cutting back on leasing. Volvo is currently providing a $1,750 cash incentive on on C30 1.0 models and $2,250 on C30 2.0 models that are leased through independent banks.

  • went into MAG Volvo in Columbus Ohio... residual of just 46%, MF of .00234 I believe... but $31,000 loaded c30R leased out at 665/mo for 36/36,000 with 1st mo payment only.

    Those numbers should yield 620/mo with the tax and fees rolled in so im not sure where the extra 45 went.... but its still insanely expensive for a 31,000 car. you can get a 44000 g37 for mid 5's.

    He tried to suggest the 46% was "pretty good for a 36 month lease".

    I said thanks, mentioned the price was absurd, and left.
  • I agree completely. My local Volvo of Charlotte quoted me a lease of $485/month on a 3 year lease for a $28k C30 and I just turned in an Infiniti G35 lease and that payment was only $470 on a 2 year lease with same terms as the C30 and the G35 was $9k more than the Volvo's MSRP. No wonder Volvo is doing horribly. You can get an Infiniti G35 loaded for a lower monthly lease price than a far from loaded C30 and the C30 is 2 classes below the G35 and $9k less expensive. The G35 blows its doors off in performance, luxury, handling, interior room, reliability, dealer name it. Volvo is out to lunch.
  • Does anyone have the money factor & residuals currently available for the C30's?
  • Hey car_man,

    I'm looking into leasing and '09 Volvo C30 T5 base model. I know that Volvo is currently running a special offer on the car - do you have any information on the money factor and residual Volvo is currently using? I'm looking at a 36 or 39 month lease, 10,000 miles/yr. Any information you have would be great.

    Also - do you know any January dealer incentives on the C30?
  • Hi louiseamber. Here's the information that you're interested in. Volvo Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a base 2009 C30 T5 with 10,000 miles per year are .00216 and 51%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease on this car are .00274 and 49%.

    Volvo is currently providing $1,000 dealer cash on this car, which I believe is compatible with its special lease program.

  • Hello Car man,
    I have to thank you for all the excellent advice and information on these forums! I'm new to leasing and it's been really helpful to read through this stuff.

    This forum looks a bit old, but I thought I'd try to revive it - My question is on the C30 - Do you happen to have the money factor and residual factor (am I saying that correctly?) for a 36 month lease on a Volvo C30 R-Design with Preferred and Climate package (is that relevant?), and 15K miles?

    Also, are there any rebates or incentives out there right now for C30s? I could not find any...

  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    You're very welcome, 03minidrvr. Thank you for the kind words :blush: .

    Here's the information that you're looking for. According to the latest information that I have seen, if you were to lease a 2010 Volvo C30 R-Design through US Bank right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value would be .00204 and 46%, respectively.

    I believe that Volvo is currently providing a $1,000 cash incentive on this car that is compatible with the above lease program.

    I assumed that you are interested in the 2010 model, but I believe that the 2011 is already available at dealers or it will be very soon. Let me know if you want the info for the '11.

  • Hi Car_man,

    I'm new to the forum and this is awesome! I'm trying to decide between the 2011 C30, 2010 S40 (S40 forum is pretty dead) and Audi A3? What are your thoughts?
    I'm looking for 36 months, 15K. I currently drive a S40 so I would qualify for $500 lease incentive. My lease is over in a week now, I would really appreciate your response. I've gotten some quotes but I've left them at work. Thank you in advance.
  • I live in LA, btw.

    Thanks bruinforever3. Of the three vehicles that you mentioned, my favorite is probably the Audi A3. Not only do I like the A3 the best as a vehicle, but its lease program is the best of these vehicles as well.

    According to the latest information that I have seen, 2011 C30's program for a 36 month, 15,000 mile per year lease is .00234 and 54%. Compare that to .00008 and 51% for a '10 A3 2.0T Premium 2WD.

    Hi - I was wondering how Volvo's current lease offer of 279/36 months can be used when you have a a trim level above the "basic" one. My local dealer has a t5r that had been a "demonstrator" and it has ~1000mi on it. The MSRP is 33000 and they are listing it for 30,000. It has the "climate package" and the "preferred package". I don't care about the preferred but I do like the air filtration of the climate package. I like the car but if it has 1000 miles on it then should their price come down a little more. For tax reasons - I would prefer to lease but I should establish the price first, right?

    Sorry for my lack of knowledge in this arena and thanks in advance for your help!
