Audi Q5 Lease Questions

  • Dear Car Guy,

    Thanks so much to you and everyone for all your info and answers it's really help me wrap my head around the numbers game for these cars!

    So I was quoted $730/mo +tax with 4k out of pocket <---does that mean fees, licensing everything or like their bonus?
    The car would be:
    Prem Plus
    Navigation
    B&O
    19" Wheels
    oh and 10k/p.a.

    All I care about is Nav and the Q5 part. How can I get under $700---or even be in the $650s and without all the riff raff? Am I really asking too much? It seems like dealers are really trying to hold onto theses cars for SALES than a lease, since they can get pretty much close to the MSRP.
    I really need
    12k/p.a. 36 months
    And the Navigation

    There was someone who got the Nav and for $660 but is that like in a far off state?
    Is there a way to find the BEST lease? Or a place away from Big cities, which I have tried, but doesn't seem to matter much, same #s. (was quoted exactly what I wanted but need 3k out of pocket and 42 mo/ lease $700/mo)

    I'm not looking fwd to an ML or it's mileage nor a Lexus RX even though so much less out of pocket and loyalty offers...what to do?
    Are some States just cheaper when I look at some of these deals on here?

    Thanks in advance!!

  • not sure if you saw my post from a few weeks ago. i did a 42 month/ 10k a yr lease on q5 2.0 liter engine prem plus with nav, B n O sound, all weather mats, and audi care. qualified tier b credit. income 105k /yr, credit 670's avg. 5k out of pocket at signing, paying 629.70/ month. this was in new jersey which from what i see this area and the south east seem to have the cheapest lease offers.
  • Hi

    My dealer told me I'm looking at $817/mo for a 42 month lease w 15k/yr for this car.
    That sounds high to me.
    Could you please tell me what the MF and residual are for this- so I can calculate what the payments should be w 4k down? I'm not understanding where the high monthly number is coming from.

    many thanks!!!
  • You're very welcome jeanlady.

    $4,000 out of pocket means both of the things that you mentioned. It likely includes your vehicle's acquisition fee, possibly a security deposit, title and license, and probably some amount of money for a capitalized cost reduction aka down payment.

    I doubt that the dealer cares whether they lease or sell your car for cash, they get paid either way. If this dealer won't budge off of MSRP you might want to try comparison shopping at another dealer or two if there are any in your area. If there aren't any other dealers in your area or they won't budge either you can always take a look at a different luxury SUV.

  • Here's the information that you're looking for cassiee.

  • Thank you!!
    Do you happen to know it for a 36 mo 15,000 lease? Dealer told me .00198.

    Thanks

  • Thanks Car Man-

    All around California there wasn't much budging on the MSRP since they are selling the Q5 like hotcakes. While you negotiate the lease, someone walks in who wants to buy it. I think it would have helped to be ready to make a deal when they just come in...

    I ended up going somewhere quite out of the way and got under $700/ mo target.
    but 48 month lease
    15k/pa
    $3K down
    Prem Plus with Nav.
    $691/mo
    includes Audicare.
  • Hi Cassiee. Audi Financial Servies' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Q5 3.2 Premium with 15,000 miles per year are .00141 and 48%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    As you can see, this factor is lower than what you were quoted. Make sure that the dealer uses the buy rate to calculate your truck's payment.

  • Thanks for the insight about what the market is like on the Q5 in your area right now. It's good to know that they're so hot. It certainly sounds like you did a quite a bit of comparison shopping so I'm sure that you did fine. Enjoy your new ride!

  • Thanks for all of the great information this forum provides! What is Audi Financial Servies' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 and 39 month lease of a 2011 Q5 2.0 Premium Plus with 10,000 miles per year? I should qualify for the top credit tier. I have been quoted .00187 and RV=52% (with $800 audi care) for 36 months. For 39 months, I was quoted .00207 and same RV. My sales price is $42,334 (includes prem plus w/nav and mats, tips and audi care and supplier discount). Thanks so much for your help!!

    You're very welcome soccermom1997.

    Audi Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Q5 2.0 Premium Plus with 10,000 miles per year are .00167 and 51%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for a 39 month lease are .00187 and 50%.

    The addition of Audi Care would boost the above residual by 1%.

  • Please guys,

    Your numbers are close but off. When getting these rates you should be accurate. This is what puts car sales in a bad perspective. One person thinks they know the rates and programs but being off just by 2% or on a money factor set according to mileage you can throw a whole monthly payment off. Just look for a good deal and a place that will service you not just sell you a car. Negotiation on Q5's are harder but you just have to look out there and see what people have. What's a couple hundred bucks in the long run compared to what your service bill can be. It's all about money in the long run not just the short of the sale.
  • Hi,

    I need some help - I am looking to lease a Q5 2.0T Premium Plus w/ Nav. I am looking at 36, 39, 42Mo lease with 12K miles p.a. I should qualify for top tier credit.

    What are the Residual Value & the Money Factor for Mar 2011? Also, what would the capital cost of the vehicle be? While the MSRP of this exact Vehicle is $42,400 and the invoice is $39,430. (Currently Audi has a special on the 2.0T Premium with Panoramic Sunroof, Bluetooth and iPod integration, 10K per year at $499 pm. The MSRP of this vehicle is $38,525)

    Also, if anyone would like to share what they paid for a similar vehicle in California (SoCal).

    Thanks a lot for all your help.
  • Hello Car Man,

    I have been recently reading your posts and have found them to be extremely helpful. I am just about now considering getting a Q5 on lease and was hoping you'd be able to help me out.

    I am looking to lease a Q5 2.0T Premium Plus w/ Nav. (I could get either a 36, 39, or 42Mo lease with 12K miles p.a.). The dealer I spoke with said the "sweet spot" is 42Mo though am not sure what that means exactly.

    Also, if you have heard of numbers around what people have paid in California (SoCal)
    for a similar vehicle to what I am looking for, could you share.

    Thanks a lot for all your help.

    Hi totallypanjabi. Audi Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Q5 Premium Plus with 12,000 miles per year are .00167 and 50%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00187 and 49%.

    I am not intimately familiar with what the market is like for the Q5 right now. If I was in the market for one, I personally would shoot for a selling price of around $1,000 over invoice and see what happens.

    Hi Car Man -

    Thanks in advance for your help. Could you give us the current money factor and residual for a 2011 Audi Q5 Premium Plus 2.0 (with Nav package) with 15,000 miles for both a 36 mo and 39 mo lease? We're top tier credit.

    We were just quoted money factor .00252 and 47% residual for the 39 month (SoCal dealership) ...wondering if there's any bargaining room there! Thanks -

    hey Car Man -

    I was wondering if you could help me out. I am currently looking into leasing a 2011 Q5 Premium 2.0T and was wondering if you had the current Money factor and residual for 12K miles on either a 36 or 39 month lease (Top tier credit). Also, how does loyalty incentives work into leasing prices? A brief description of how that works would be awesome. We currently are leasing an A4 and this will be our second Audi so this loyalty stuff is new to me. Thank you so much in advance for your help.
  • Don't lease Audi! I Got into a 2010 Q5 fully loaded awd. Major known problems regarding transmission, MMI, environmental controls, I had problems within one week, including a near accident caused by a sudden downshift. Went through arbitration, Audi leasing is a group of unbelievable jerks. At arbitration, even though i showed documentation that the issues I was raising have been complained about by thousands, they denied they had ever heard of these complaints before. But when the guy came to inspect he told me they know and knew of the problems but they just expect most folks to give up. He showed up with thousands of dollars worth or parts and instead of just releasing me from a crappy vehicle/lease they attempted to replace parts. Read your lease carefully, you canot exit the lease. the guy at arbitration had the balls to say that "Ina few years Audi engineers will fix and modify" all the things I was complaining about, in other words I was expected to finance Audi R&D??? It is a crap car, things fall apart, too many bells and whistles, really crappy service from leasing and no escape clause even if the car is crap. I will continue fighting. Just google Audi complaints or Q5 or Q7 complaints.

    I'd be happy to help you out snickers12. Audi Financial Services' June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Q5 2.0T Premium with 12,000 miles per year are .00148 and 52%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00168 and 51%.

    Audi is currently providing a $1,500 cash incentive on leases of this truck. If you are a loyal customer make sure to take this cash into account when negotiating your deal. As a current A4 lessee, you should be eligible for this allowance.

    Car man
    Please help, I would like to lease a 2011 Audi Q5, 3.2 litre with premium package. This is the dealers test car with approx 2300 miles on it. I think I have just learned how to calculate the lease price but want to confirm the money factor and residual factor and what should be the price of the car with these miles on it? What do you think my lease on 36 month, 10k miles per year be? I am in FL

    CarMan

    Ive been doing alot of research on the Q5 and am waiting patiently as there is a shortage in the NY/ NJ area on the 2.0s. I do not understand how the percentages above work. I get the whole residual dollar value but how does the percentage work. The recent price I got on the 3.2 fully loaded was $680. Hoping the 2.0s coming in around 6 or less if possible...I lease cars all the time usually Hondas (for work)and they just seem to be more lease friendly.

    Thanks for your help
