    rookie lease question... Is residual value based off the sale price of the car, or off the MSRP?

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 28,043

    Always a percentage of MSRP.

    @kyfdx@Michaell

    Can you guys tell me the residual value & money factors for a 2014 Forester 2.5i (CVT) & 2.5i Premium? 36 months/12K per year

    2015s are out on the lots already? Might as well pass that info along to me as well.

    Thanks as always!

    So does the higher residual/higher money factor of the 2015 balance out the lower residual/lower money factor of the 2014? Hmm. Let's do some fictitious calculations & find out. To Be Continued:)

    Also interesting is the 1% residual value hit the 2014 2.5i Premium takes over the "base" 2.5i model.

    I would say that the payment will be very close to one another at the moment. Not sure what the numbers will look like in August or September, when you get more serious, though I would think that if there is a lot of inventory of the '14's, then expect to see lower MF's to move them out.

    Also interesting is the 1% residual value hit the 2014 2.5i Premium takes over the "base" 2.5i model.

    This is something we've been seeing a lot of with the premium makes. Audi, for example, has residuals of a point or two lower on their "prestige" trim level than they do on the 'premium' or 'premium plus' trim lines. Now it's trickling down into the non-premium brands.

    My guess is that the technology available in cars now will be worth less after 3 years, due to advances made in the industry.

    Think about it - do you want to buy an off-lease (fill in the blank) from 2011 with tech that is 3 years old - or missing altogether? (I'm looking at you, streaming Bluetooth audio)

    @‌Michaell

    I ran the numbers using current invoice as the selling price (I'm sure they go lower), but just as a "base" number. I've included 6.35% Sales Tax

    -2014 2.5i: $273.31 -2015 2.5i: $281.92

    -2014 2.5i Premium: $305.71 -2015 2.5i Premium: $345.19

    Dealer in Stamford shows 41 2015s in inventory (or in transit) with 0 2014s. Another dealer not too far away shows 18 2015s in stock (or in transit) with 0 2014s.

    It is almost the middle of June. I've got to make some time and start test driving.
