    How did you get it for that low? Purchase or lease?

    You seem to know what you're talking about. Can you explain all the terms you used? Looking at a CT lease. Seems like you got a great deal...close to what we are trying for.

    We are trying to find the best lease on the CT200 and have gone back and forth with one dealer. From what I read, it's best to negotiate the price before telling them you want to lease. But with the nationally advertised lease price going on right now, I went in telling them straight up that's why I came in. Does that hurt me?

    What's the best way to negotiate a lease?

    He had to put $3,000.00 down on the lease... Not a good idea to put so much down on a lease. If the car gets stolen or wrecked beyond repair, your down payment is gone... I only put inceptions down when I got my lease... $1404 total to pickup car... includes $700 acq fee, $269 dealer ripoff doc fee, $325.00 NJ MV fee for 5 years, $114 for all weather lexus mats. MSRP was $37,509. My MF was 0.0001.. 27 months/15k/yr $287 per month it comes out to almost the same deal with mines being a little better as i got all weather mats and my msrp was a little higher with a lot lower down payment during pickup. I just pay a higher per montly lease fee and get to keep the down payment in my bank instead of giving it to the dealer...

    What was the price you negotiated the car to and what is the resident value used?

    It was about $32,500 before rebates, plus I also got $1750.00 and $500.00 loyalty rebate on top.. The rebates are taxable in NJ... My residual is mid $25k... I forget the exact number as i am not home now... I also don't plan on buying the car so the residual is not very important to me.. The most important was getting the 15k miles per yr. and 27 months as I like to change cars every 2 years or so...

    Hi Bayoyong, are you getting your deals in the bay area? We would like to lease one too, for base model, dealer is advertising $299, $1000 drive off, 27 Mons, 10000 miles, can you please share the deal you got so far? Thank you

    I am in LA and got offered $270 before tax, 999 down, 27 month, 10k lease. This is for the base mode at 33750.

    haven't been told the drive off yet because I wasn't committing. but if I can get them to waive the acquisition fee and other crazy fee, only paying tax & license + 999 down. I think it's a good deal.

    I am really curious on the other poster's deal, 37000 msrp and got a 259 that for real?

    CarMan, what are the july money factor and residual for a 27mo and 36mo lease for the Lexus CT200 in Cincinnati, OH?
  • bayoyongbayoyong Posts: 5
    Best deal I got on a Lexus CT 200h was 3500 down and 250/mo. Went to multiple dealers. Some wouldn't touch that. Others said they could only match it. Knew that was the best they could do. Ended up getting a loaded Civic for 1500 down and 230/mo. Kinda wish I had a hybrid, though. Civic is ok on gas mileage. But nowhere near 40-45.
  • What are the money factors and residuals in Ohio for. 27 and 36 month lease respectively? Thanks!

    Carman, would you please tell me the August money factor and residual for CA on a 36 mo. lease with 12k miles per year?
  • Hi CarMan,

    What are the Lease Money Factors and Residual Values for a 2013 Lexus CT200h in California for 12,000 miles per year and 36 months and 39 months? This is for some one who has 800+ credit.

  • just put a $500 deposit for a 2013 CT200 Base model, waiting for delivery mid-week.

    $999 out of the door (includes tax), $299 per month (includes tax) , 27 month (with option to extend 6 more month), 10k per year.

    Hope this helps.
  • I have not leased in the past until recently a Lexus dealer salesman mentioned it to me due to "special rebates" with leasing only ($1500 rebate on the new 2013 RX450h and $1750 PLUS first month lease payment "FREE" on the new 2013 CT200h).

    The "MANAGER" said I can get the additional REBATES ONLY if I LEASE. Then he said I can call up the Lexus Financial something like 6 months down the road and ask for a PAY OFF and I can then either pay off these two leases with cash or just refinance these two on my own. This way I will get the rebates noted above. I think there is a "CATCH" somewhere and I just don't know it yet. Anyone can enlighten me on this will be greatly appreciated !!!

    Here is what I have negotiated so far on the new 2013 RX450h (brand new and not a demonstrator or a loaner vehicle):

    2013 RX450h 4X2 with --------------------------------------------------- MRSP of $46310.00
    1. Sport Appearance Package with 19 inch F Sport Wheels ------- MRSP of $1100.00
    2. Comfort Package -------------------------------------------------------MRSP of $825.00
    3. 12 speaker Premium Audio Package (grouped in with other options)
    ------------------MRSP of $0.00
    4. Xenon High Intensity Discharge Headlamps -------------------------MRSP of $515.00
    5. Navg. System w/Voice Command, Backup Camera, Lexus Enform
    and etc...... ---------------------------------------------------------MRSP of $2775.00
    6. Intuitive Parking Assist --------------------------------------------------MRSP of $500.00
    7. Premium Package w/Blind Spot Monitor System, Leather, Moon Roof
    and etc............ ----------------------------------------------------MRSP of $2570.00
    8. Wood & Leather Trimmed Steering Wheel & Shift Knob ------------MRSP of 330.00
    9. Cargo Net, Cargo Mat, Wheel Locks and Key Gloves --------------MRSP of $255.00
    10. Delivery Processing and Handling -----------------------------------MRSP of $910.00
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------
    TOTAL MSRP OF $56090.00

    The BEST PRICE I could negotiate thus far is $49200.00 (This is "cash price". Meaning if I just pay cash or get my own financing or Lexus Financing it is $49200.00 PLUS Tax/Tag/governmental fees).

    If I "LEASE" this vehicle I will get ADDITIONAL $1500.00 OFF to bring it to $47700.00

    Here is the LEASE DEAL I was quoted thus far (they checked my credit and I do have excellent credit and is tier ONE):

    No money down (except for the $1500 REBATE), Advanced Payments $684.09, Upfront Charges $545.21, Total Cap Reduction $250.70, Due on Delivery is $0.00 (ZERO). Monthly payment is $684.09 for 24 months (Base monthly of $633.42 + Tax of $50.67 = Monthly Payment of $684.09). Residual Amount is $37019.40 with "MONEY FACTOR/RATE" of 0.00085. Annual Mileage of 10,000.


    On the NEW 2013 CT 200h ..................

    MRSP of $31850.00

    1. Premium Package with Navg ......... --------------------------------- MRSP $890.00
    2. Leather Package...... -------------------------------------------------- MRSP $1930.00
    3. HDD Navigation System Backup Monitor, Lexus Enform ....... --- MRSP $2735.00
    4. Intuitive Parking Assist ----------------------------------------------- MRSP $500.00
    5. Cargo Mat, Cargo Net, Wheel Locks & Key Gloves -------------- MRSP $263.00
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------

    TOTAL MRSP $39063.00

    I was able to negotiate thus far a CASH PRICE of $36200.00

    If I "LEASE" then I will get additional $1750.00 OFF and LEXUS FINANCIAL will pay the first month's lease payment.

    Here is the LEASE I was quoted:

    NO MONEY DOWN, Total Cash and Rebates of $1750.00, Advanced payment of $430.08, Upfront Charges of $1253.84, Total Cap Reduction of $496.16, Due on Delivery is $0.00 (ZERO), Monthly payment is $430.08 for 24 months (Base Monthly Payment of $389.22 + Tax of $31.86 = $430.08), Money Factor/Rate is 0.00085, Annual Miles is 10,000.


    Should I just get a loan at 1.9% (with Lexus Financial on the RX450h) and 0.9% (with Lexus Financial on the CT200h) VERSUS lease on these two deals?

    I have excellent credit (TOP TIER ONE) and already approved for these two loans at my credit union anyway, but at 1.98% which is slightly higher than Lexus Financial.

    Anyone can enlighten me on the above two deals?

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks in advance.
