    Taxes are 6% in Maryland on the sale price...So I have to add about $4,000 to the financed amount (includes $350 title, registration, tags)...I would consider this lease at $850/month with zero down but not sure if I can get that anywhere...Thoughts? Thanks!

    Doesn't look like you can come close to that number, especially given the MSRP of that unit and Maryland taxes.

    I plan to order a 2015 AWD ML350 and the dealer said the car would arrive in Oct. Are the RV & MF configures based on when the car arrives or when the order is placed? Does Mercedes often changes its RV & MF over a couple of months? Many thanks!

    Usually it's when the car arrives at the dealer and the paperwork is drawn up.

    MB has updated their numbers every month; hard to say what they will look like in October.

    Thanks very much, Michaell.

    Does MB usually give out much better lease terms (MF & Residuals) at year end? By how much usually? I wonder whether it is worthwhile to wait for a couple of months before I order my ML350? Thanks.

    It's hard to predict what will happen with the lease numbers from month to month.

    Hi, could you tell me what the MF & Residual are for a 2014 ML350 4Matic? Also, how does Direct pay affect the #'s? Thanks!

    What lease term and how many miles per year?

    AutoPay lowers the MF by .0001

  • wonder if the pros can chime in - should i take this deal or not?

    2014 Ml350 4matic 59645 msrp 36 months / 7500m/year 3 year maintenance included NJ taxes (7%) $645.20 a month, $2010 total out of pocket, including first payment.

    i am dumping my current ML lease, so the dealer claims they applied loyalty discount, but the only $44 i am aware of that is available now is $1750 dealer cash on 2014 ML models.

    feedback is appreciated.

    Hard to comment without a selling price, but the payment looks decent. Can you really get by with 7500 miles/yr? Going to 10K/yr adds 7500 miles, and only raises your total cost by less than $600. Hard to get extra miles any cheaper than that.

    Oh, so sorry, totally forgot to list that. selling price is 52K

    Hi Mark,

    I personally think this is a great deal. I am also in the market for one for my wife, also in NJ.

    The best I came up with so far is $58k selling price on a $64k car.

    If you don't mind could you share the name of your dealer.

    Thanks,

    Vik

    I received this deal a few days ago. With current MF and RV I'm not sure how it adds up though?

    2015 RWD ML350
    MSRP: $56040
    Sale price: $50040
    Terms: 12k/36 months
    Monthly Payment: $659 including taxes

    With an RV of 55% and MF of .00137 I get $715 as a monthly payment. Maybe there's extra incentives they're applying?

    Also what is included in the drive off? They quoted me 3k is this normal? I was clear that I did not want any down payment for cap cost reduction. I'm in CA. So far I have:
    Acquisition fee $1095
    First month $659
    DMV roughly $450
    Dealer prep $30
    What am I missing? Disposition fee for $595? I know there's all those misc fees like tires, electronic filing etc but do those add up to $700?

    Thoughts and advice on the deal are appreciated.

    With the numbers listed above I get a pre-tax payment of $644.61/mo for 36 months.

    Acquisition fee is normal, but in your case it's marked up from $795. First month is typical, too, as are the DMV fees. Have the dealer break down the $3K for you so you fully understand how it's being applied.

    Vik, even though pros didnt respond here, i too think this is a great deal, i sealed it and made it just a ted bit sweeter,,,,,,,reduced it down from 36 months to 30 and negotiated acquisition back to cost at $795 from $995 they wanted. (told them to apply that towards cap cost reduction) my final payment is $637

    mercedes benz of brooklyn is the dealer. cars fly off the lot there, seems like they like to make deals if you work them hard and come with realistic competitors quote to beat. good luck.

    Hell,

    Would you have the current lease rates for a 2014 ML350 bluetec for 24/27/36 mo and 12k miles per year? Also, are there any pull ahead programs Benz may be offering at this time for existing lease customers? Thanks!
