    Can anyone tell me the March lease rates for a 2011 Optima EX. The MSRP is $23,190 and the invoice is $21,715. This is for 36 months and 10,000 miles per year.
    Thank you

    Looking for current lease parameters (residual value %, money factor, acq. fees, etc.) for a fully optioned 2011 Optima SX with MSRP of $30,925 , annual miles are less than 9000, for a 36-month lease. Is there a 24-month lease available? If so, I would be interested in the same set of lease data...

    Thanks in advance!

    I guess this is not a popular leasing car at the moment but I just completed a deal and have some numbers to offer.

    Base Ex, 12,000 miles is 53% and .001 for a 36 month lease
    EX Turbo, 12,000 miles is 54% and .00092 for 36 months

    acquisition fee is $595

    Hope this helps somebody

    I am getting initial numbers of 51% residual on SX, 0.00034 MF, $592 acquisition fee.

    Not sure if 51% is right for SX for March...
  • trenztrenz Posts: 9
    If this is for 36 months and 12,000 miles I am not sure. That MF is very good, less than 1% interest . Just from comparing the EX to EX Turbo it would seem that the residual and MF gets better as the trim line goes up. Could you have gotten numbers for a longer lease than 36 months or for more miles than 12,000, as that might explain the lower residual than the Ex's I listed? I am in New Jersey but not sure if that matters.
  • dkgsxdkgsx Posts: 8
    the numbers were for a 36-mo. lease in CA. But, being the first set of numbers, I don't trust them much, as the dealer, when I pushed him later, said 53% was possible.

    From my on-line observations, higher-optioned models usually have lower residual... 53% is quoted on the Kia's web site (Nov-2010 press release and in the current LX lease offer).

    0.00034 MF seems on par with Sonata models (same parent co.).

    Despite lease money ($1000) and customer cash ($500), this particular dealer seems unwilling to get "selling price" below the invoice (but above cost)...

    LX auto, sticker $21,285, 36 month 12,000 miles per year, rate .00137, residual .53, adj. residual $11,281. There is $1000 KIA money on leases, and $500 loyalty, competitor, or active military money. Plus the dealer sent out a postcard worth $500.

    Hi trenz. Kia Motors Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Optima EX with 12,000 miles per year are .00060 and 53%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I'm not sure if KMF offers leases with 10,000 miles per year, but if it does its residual values for that mileage allowance is likely 1% higher.

    Here's the information that you're looking for, dkgsx. Kia Motors Finance's March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of an Optima SX with 12,000 miles per year are .00034 and 51%, respectively.

    I don't believe that Kia is currently offering 24-month leases of this car. I don't think that it offers leases with 10,000 miles per year, but if it does its residual values for that mileage allowance are 1% higher.

    Looking at this vehicle. Been quoted a sale price of $23,600.00 plus ttl on an MSRP of $25,440.00. I believe this a fair price. Would anyone know the current buy rate lease money factor and residual for 15k miles? I certainly would appreciate it.

    Just leased one today in CA and noticed that Item #6 on the lease agreement under Estimated Official Fees and Taxes has $1960 next to it. Is this something I'm paying as part of my monthly payment or a bill coming in the mail later? My monthly payment already has sales/use tax in there but they still don't add up to $1960 over 3 years.

    The actual section reads:
    The total estimated amount you will pay for official and license fees, registration, title and taxes over the term of your Lease, whether included with your monthly payments or access otherwise: $1960 (e) The actual total of fees and taxes may be higher or lower depending on the tax rates in effect or the value of the Vehicle at the time a fee or tax is assessed.

    The section under itemized amount due at signing listed:
    Registration Fees: $295
    Upfront Taxes: $220
    Title Fees: N/A
    Opt. DMV Filing Fee: N/A
    Doc Fee: $55
    CA Tire Fees: $8.75
    Lease acquisition fee: N/A

    Lease acqquisition fee of $595 is listed under gross capitalized cost.

    I'm so afraid that I might have gotten duped since the dealer asked for only $1k at sign off and that's all I gave to them. Just want to get some ideas before calling the dealer tomorrow.

    Thanks!

    It's just an estimate of what is built into the lease... except, I believe you'll have to pay registration fees each year you have the lease.... or, the leasing bank will have to pay them, and you'll have to reimburse them.

    You've already paid almost $600 in taxes and fees upfront.. We don't know the tax in your monthly payment, but you'll have to pay registration each year.... I'd say the $1960 isn't far off (and, doesn't include the acq.fee).

    regards,

    Thanks, kyfdx. If that's the case then I think I got a great deal on my lease. My total monthly payment is $250.70 and $1000 drive off which includes first month payment. This is a 3yr 12,000mi/yr lease on the A/T LX gross cap cost $20,853($20,258+$595acq. fee). Residual is $10,982

    I am currently looking at an Optima SX Black with only the premium package.

    Does anyone have the current Residual Value and Money Factor for leasing?

    Kia of Hollywood, FL is stating a price of $28,495. is that a good price?
  • dammitjim1dammitjim1 Posts: 95

    I would check truecar.com - $28,495 seems high for the SX equipped that way, as a basis for determining the lease price. This is probably due to short supply on this car. Truecar.com is a great resource though - I got a quote of $28,967 with Navigation and Premium Touring packages.

    For reference, the SX equipped as you described, dealer cost is $26,628 and MSRP is $29,100. It doesn't seem like you're getting any favors.

    Also looking to see the MF and residual for an SX in June. Looking to lease this weekend. Went last weekend to test drive and they came at me with some rediculous $480/mo for 36mo, so obviously they think I'm a moron. I want to go back overly prepared. The SX I was looking at had no navi and listed for $26,900. Any info would be appreciated! (In NJ if that helps)
  • jerryz27jerryz27 Posts: 4
    Try using www.truecar.com and look up what price they recommend, they even claim to have a "price lock Guarantee", i just did for my negotiations.
    Going to Kia for an SX without nav, it says I have a locked price of $27,114 at one dealer.

    And $25,893 for a Sonata SE Turbo with Nav for $25,893.

    I'm gonna ask for less on both.
  • dammitjim1dammitjim1 Posts: 95
    Yeah, $480 is crazy pricing for a KIA. I think the short supply of the vehicle is going to produce a lot of stupid dealer tricks in the short term. Using truecar.com, I got a price of $28,967 from Sansone JR's 66 Automall in NJ - a bit of a hike from LI, but worth the trip at that price, IF there are no games being played. The lease based on that price was $380/month, though with a hefty $2300 up front.

    I'm not really inclined to pull the trigger based on that number, as for not much more I can get into a fully loaded G37Xs with less money up front.
  • jerryz27jerryz27 Posts: 4
    Kia SX Black w\o Nav
    MSRP $28,995
    PPrice $27,000 = Sticker + rebate
    MF= .00034
    RV= .49
    15k miles

    $700 Down Pay = First Pay + Tag
    Then adding to total cost $1400 neg equity
    Payment = $448 - 36 months

    This afternoon at 6pm. Good or Bad? (Assumed Top Tier Credit which i don't have so MF might go up)
  • dammitjim1dammitjim1 Posts: 95
    That sounds really high for a car with a purchase price of 27,000. It's a result of short supply, I guess. I had similar experiences with multiple dealers, none of whom had the car equipped as I wanted it. Just as a reference comparison,
    I got a lease quote from a local Infiniti dealer on a fully loaded G37Xs, with 1100 down and 419/month. When presented with an offer like that, it became easy to lose interest in the SX Turbo.

    I think you'd probably get a better deal on the Sonata Turbo, but the looks of the SX Turbo might be more appealing.

    27,600 MSRP
    Residual 51%
    Residual value: 14,076
    LMF: .00065
    monthly payment (w/tax): 338.37
    Total drive off: $2,995

    How far apart are we?
