    Hi sirk98. The problem with leasing a Soul for anything other than 36 months is that this seems to be the only term that Kia is currently providing lease support on. If this is indeed the case, leasing for any other length would be a much worse deal.

    Good Morning,
    My dealership has a 2010 soul left. Is is possible to still lease a 2010? and if so what would be the money factor and residual on a 2010 Soul sport with man trans?
    Thanks
  • Hi jrw118. Kia is not providing lease support on 2010 models any longer. As a result, if you really want to lease you wold probably be better off going with a newer model.

    Car_Man - could you please provide MF and residual for Kia's December lease programs for 36 mo 10K and 12K leases of a 2012 Soul + Automatic. Any lease incentives still active ?
  • I'd be happy to dpav. Kia Financial Services' December buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39-month lease of a 2012 Soul + Automatic with 12,000 miles per year are .00164 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Kia is currently providing a $500 cash incentive on leases of this vehicle.

  • Hi Car_man,

    Does Kia do 15k leases on the soul? Term does not really matter for me, I just need the mileage. If yes, can you please tell me the money factor and residual for an Exclaim model?

    Thank you very much!
  • Yes, jordyncale, all banks that I am aware of offer leases with 15,000 miles per year. Kia Financial Services' 15,000 mile per year residual values are 1% lower than its 12,000 mile per year residuals.

    KFS' 39-month, 15,000 mile per year numbers for a 2012 Soul 2.0L are .00092 and 53%.

    Hello Car_man,
    Thank you for all the wonderful info you have here! Any chance you have the current lease numbers and incentives for the Soul? Looks like the inventories in my area are finally being replenished. My biggest problem is my wife likes all of the current models being offered by KIA!!!!! Actually, I think we are looking at an optima, soul, or Forte. But I will ask about the others in the appropriate forums. Thanks again.

    Hello,

    Does anyone have the current numbers and incentive for the soul+? Am trying to see what a 36 month with 15K/year looks like.

    Thanks,
    Chad

    Thanks Car_man!
  • Hi Car_man,

    My wife and I are strongly considering leasing a 2012 Soul "Plus" with the audio package (approx. $19,500), and we have a couple of questions.

    1. what are the details of the current lease (particularly the money factor and residual for 15k miles)

    2. While I'll make use of the Edmunds calculators, I'd like to get your opinion of leasing a Soul, and particularly in light of what seems like tight supply

    Thanks very much for this forum and the valuable help you provide us all.

    Hi Phil. Kia Financial Services' June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Soul Plus with 15,000 miles per year are .00081 and 55%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Kia is providing a $500 cash incentive on leases of this car right now.

    Kia's lease program on the Soul isn't bad. I would't have any problem with getting one right now.

    Hello Car_man, do you have the current lease numbers on a 13 Soul Exclaim with premium package? I'm in the market for one and was quoted a pathetic offer that had me walking out of the dealership with no further contact. They do have the EXACT vehicle that I want.

    My offer: $3000.00 down
    36 months @ $378
    15,000 mls/ year
    MSRP $23300.00

    This was a dune colored Soul that is VERY hard to find loaded up with options like I want.

    Thank you so much,

    Ray

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

  • Hi All (Car_man),
    I made an "impulse buy" yesterday for a work car that will be vehicle wrapped - but I can still potentially get out (or weasel out) - I usually research the daylights out of things, but I got hit with gentle "high pressure" and my greed took over.
    New ! premiere, loaded, some other nickel and dime options i didn't want - essentially the sticker was about $23,104 + $775, i got them to drop the $4k plus they tried to add on as some sort of dealer installed crap - anyway, they claimed a money factor (which i didn't right down) but when multiplied by 2400 gave me i believe 2.34 % - they claimed a roughly 60% residual, and lease payments of $299/month + tax, $1,500 down, 12k/miles per year.
    did i do alright? i felt very blind at the dealership, and they used the blank piece of paper thing - never showing me actual invoice, etc.
    i don't know if there's dealer cash (i think $500 incentive), and they claimed the dealership had money left over from last month to put towards deals.
    Did i do alright or get ripped off? Thanks so much!
  • Hi iamgarygnu. Wow $4,000 in dealer add-ons. That would be enough to scare me away right off the bat ;). The money factor that you were quoted looks about right. Do you know what selling price you paid? That would make it much easier to evaluate this deal.

  • Thanks Car_man. The $4,000 was a fantasy of theirs that I laughed in their face and had them disregard (they even had their tale between their legs) - anyway, we ultimately went forward, something like $24, 029 MSRP, less $500 rebate, I put down $1,500 (tax, tags, first month, donut fee), and I THINK they threw in $1k cash for capital reduction. My final monthly is $299/month including tax. I had been offered $316 elsewhere so I THINK I did alright - MF was something like .00096, with residual of 55% if i read the numbers correctly - i think i did alright.
    if not, well, too late :(
  • Hi Car Man,

    Just wondering what the current residual and money rates are for 2013 Kia Soul base model with auto transmission, 16" wheels and remote start>

    Also, would those be similar for a Pus model with the same options and the 2.0 engine?

    Thanks!
