    Hi Car_Man & kyfdx,

    I'd like the current money factor and residual value for the FIAT 500c Pop, 12000 miles, 42 months. I'm sure others would be interested in the full lineup of FIAT 500 rates on base and ABARTH models as well.

    Thanks a bunch!
    You guys rock!

    Thanks Jarvis :shades: . Here's the information that you're looking for. Fiat's June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 42-month lease of a 2012 500c Pop with an automatic transmission and 15,000 miles per year are 3.96% and 39%, respectively.

    I believe that Fiat runs its special lease program through Ally. As you can see Ally publishes lease rates instead of money factors for the vehicles that it leases. You can convert its lease rates into approximate money factor equivalents by dividing them by 2400.

    Thank you so much Car_man for your reply.

    Would you mind providing the lease rate and residual for the 2012 Fiat 500 Pop (auto) (non convertible) too? Just as a comparison. 42 month, 15k miles, maybe the 36 month too, but i think the special they are running is on 42 months.

    Thanks again, you are awesome! you should start your own website with all this stuff! You've been a big help to so many people throughout the years! I'd like to buy you a beer if you're ever in SF!

    Cheers,
    Jarvis

    You're very welcome Jarvis. Mmmmmmm beer :).

    Fiat's June programs are only scheduled to run through today. It is scheduled to introduce its new July programs some time tomorrow. Please post a reminder for me in a couple of days and I'll be happy to fill you in on what I've been able to find out about the new program.

    hi Car_man / kyfdx,

    Do you have october residual values and money factor for a FIAT 500 Sport, 42 months and 36 months terms?

    thanks!

  • Hi arturo. According to the latest information that I have seen, Ally's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Fiat 500 Sport with an automatic transmission and 15,000 miles per year are 1.63% and 43%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 42-month lease are 1.63% and 39%.

    When negotiating your deal on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $1,350 cash incentive that is available on leases of it.

  • Hi Car_Man,

    Thanks for the info. We could not agree on a price for October, so I'll try again for November.

    Do you have october residual values and money factor for a FIAT 500 Sport, 42 months and 36 months terms for 12,000 miles per year?

    thanks!

  • You're welcome Arturo. Here's the latest info for you. Ally's November base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Fiat 500 Sport with an automatic transmission and 12,000 miles per year are 4.44% and 49%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39-month lease are 4.44% and 47%.

    There is a $1,000 cash incentive on leases of this car right now. Make sure to take it into account during your negotiations.

    Hi Car_man,

    Can you please provide the Nov money factor and residuals for 36 mon/12k miles/yr on a 2012 and 2013 Abarth.

    Thank you,
    Joe
  • Hi Joe. Fiat is not providing any lease support at all on the Abarth. As a result, I suspect that its lease program for it is pretty bad. If you really want an Abarth, you might be better off financing it if the trim level is eligible for Fiat's special financing program of 0% for up to 3 years, 1.9% for 4 years, or 2.9% for 5 years.

  • Looking for 36 mo, 12 or 15k miles money factor and residual on Fiat 500c Lounge. Also, what are the Acquisition Fees for Fiat?
  • Hi arejay73. Ally's February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Fiat 500C Lounge with an automatic transmission and 15,000 miles per year are 0.01% and 43%.

    The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.

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

    Ally's acquisition fee is typically $595. I assume that's the case on Fiats as well.

    Hi Car_man,

    Could you please provide the July MF and residuals for 36 m, 10/12K miles on a 2013 500 Sport Automatic Transmission? I know that acq fee is $595 and OH tax rate is %7.75 where I live.

    There is a cash incentive of $1000 for Sport, as well as I am qualified for $500 new college graduate discount from Chrysler group.

    Additionally, is there a way to eliminate the $250 doc fee that dealers charge?

    Therefore I would shoot for ~17000 for an msrp $19500 car. Fingers crossed!

    Thanks,

    Of course there is a way to eliminate the documentation fee, do not pay it! It is not a legitimate fee and you are not obligated to pay the dealer extra for its processing of the paperwork or delivery of the vehicle. Such costs are included in the selling price of the vehicle. The only fees a buyer should pay are those imposed by the state such as registration or sales tax.

    In reality, the dealer doc fee is simply a method dealers have devised to deceive some buyers into believing they are paying less for the vehicle. The doc fee is not a fee of any sort, it is simply additional dealer profit. Dealers chose the word fee as it implies something legitimate. Dealers are very craft about such things.

    The thing to understand is dealers do have to show the doc fee on the paper work. If they do not they run the risk of being sued for discriminatory sales practices if some sales contracts list the fee while others do not. However, that does not mean everyone pays the bogus fee. Savy buyers do not pay an outrageous doc fee.

    Simply negitate the price of the car, say $17,000 and when the dealer brings up the $250 doc fee, demand they price of the car be reduced to $16,750.

    I recently bought a vehicle where the dealer attempted to add a $500 bogus doc fee. I stated I would walk if they did not adjust the price. To compensate they lowered the selling price by $250 and increased the trade value by $250. I also noticed a guy at a nearby table who was also threatening to walk if the dealer did not adjust the price for the doc fee. That buyer was also successful.

    Just be glad you are not in Florida where dealers attempt to add a doc fee of up to $1,000 or Virginia where some dealers are now looking for $600.

    karhill1, thank you for the lengthy post. This is always the area I struggle since they literally give you the paperwork with doc fee "printed" on it, so that there is no negotiation over it. But now I know to lower the price elsewhere if that fee is outrageous.

    As of today I have emailed 8 nearby (~100 miles) dealers, asking for a particularly specific car. One get back to me pretty fast, the other wanted to talk over the phone which I politely refused. I assume tomorrow night I will have the numbers from most of them.

    Then the only thing I need is the MF and residuals from our beloved host CarMan@Edmunds ! ;)

    I think I will pass 500 and look for the bigger brother 500L.

    Can anybody tell me the MF and residual for a 2014 FIAT 500L Easy (Automatic) with Popular Equipment Group & Easy Premier Package for 36K/3yr???

    Such car has an MSRP of $23045 and with my student discount I could easily make it $20225. This is the advertised price on dealer's website, so we can assume around $20000 will be just as easy.
  • Hi CarMan!

    wanted to know lease numbers on the 500 Abarth and Abarth C (Cabrio)

    looking for 24/36 month residuals with 15k/yr thanks!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Here you go buyrl. Chrysler Capital's July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Fiat 500 Sport AT with 12,000 miles per year are .00090 and 45% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with 10,000 miles per year would be 1% higher.

    Doc fees are up to dealers. If you don't like it, shoot for a selling price that's $250 lower than your want...if they agree to it you have just succeeded at eliminating it ;).
