    I think South Carolina is within the Southeast Toyota Distributors region.

    .00190 MF and 69% residual for 36mo, 12K mi./yr. I'm not sure, but I think the subsidized Corolla leases for SET are in the 42-48 month range.

    And, while that residual is really high, Toyota doesn't residualize a lot of their options, so the effective residual percentage will likely be lower, unless you lease an LE with no options.

    On the plus side, only $300 for sales tax in SC!

    Ugh that MF is not particularly good. I just leased an Audi A6 on a MF of .00031. Thanks for the info

  • mcollins34mcollins34 Posts: 11

    just to confirm the MF you gave me above is equivalent to approximately 4.6% APR (just multiplied by 2400), correct?

    Yes, MF x 2400 generates the equivalent interest rate.

    One NY dealer has told me 36/15k residual is 58%, waiting to hear back from another one in NJ.

    I'll be real honest.. Toyota breaks up their numbers into many, many different regions and distributorships, and run regional short-term specials. We don't get all of the info, and many times, it changes mid-month, which we don't find out about, at all.

    Plus, they don't residualize all of the options, so even the residual numbers don't add up.. So, I can't vouch for our numbers as being accurate for Toyota (like I could for BMW, Audi, Mazda, Nissan, etc.)

    You were actually correct on the percentage! It's just that Toyata/TFS calculates it on the base MSRP, even without destination. I had remembered you had said earlier that they don't residualize certain options, but I didn't realize they even take out Dest--first time I'm seeing this after calculating many leases for BMWFS, MBFS, Infiniti/Nissan FS, etc.

    I mis-spoke earlier when I said the dealer had told me 58%. He had actually told me $11,163 residual (36/15k) on a '14 LE (MSRP $19,110) and I did the math on the back of an envelope. When another dealer told me the same $RV on another LE with floor mats (MSRP $19,335) I remembered what you'd said about options and started to back stuff out. Lo and behold, 11,163 is 61% of the base MSRP before Dest ($18,300).

    Helped a family member close the following deal today:

    2014 Corolla LE 36 month lease, 15k mi/yr

    MSRP $18,300 + $810 Destination + Options: Floor Mats ($225)

    Selling Price: $17,316.00 + Doc Fee $399.00 (easiest way to compare apples-to-apples) Found using Truecar

    Cap Cost: Selling price + Doc + Acq fee $650 Down payment AKA Cap cost reduction: $109.00 Net cap cost: $18,256.00

    Residual: 61% of base MSRP: $11,163.00 MF: .00010

    Lease payment per month: $199.97 Due at signing: 1st + 7% tax + Reg/title 229.50 + down $109 = $1,042.39

    If anyone wants to play around with these numbers, here's one of my spreadsheets:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqQ7UqzGm5fRdEFVdktaN3RQeHdfR0hnX3Z4NTJHYWc&usp=sharing

    PS: Some other comments on the process

    A. Even after dealer saying throughout process that they "always honor their TrueCar pricing" they tried to sneak things like $299 window etching in there and justify it by saying TC allows them to charge whatever dealer fees they want. BS! TC states each dealer's Doc Fee upfront, and beyond that I'll choose what options I want. If I don't want etching, I won't take etching. So it got taken off.

    B. TFS' customer rebates: this seemed the shadiest part of the deal. Almost like the dealer didn't want to give it, even if it's a factory rebate that supposedly goes directly from Toyota to the end customer. Do they pocket these somehow? I've seen the fine print on many ads which say "All applicable rebates to dealer" or something to that effect. But I just don't understand how the dealer benefited from taking the rebate off the table, but they were much more agreeable without the supposed customer rebate as part of the deal.

    Thanks.. that's good to know. I didn't realize that none of the options were residualized. That sucks.

    I am not sure how much can be generalized from this instance. I asked dealers about the '14 LE and they came back with 11,163 so by my reverse-math I guess floor mats do not get residualized. Perhaps some other options do?

    24/15 is 73%

    Thanks in advance for any help. John

    if you are in texas, be advised that they tax the entire purchase price of the car up front rather than just taxing the payment amount. There are tax credits to offset this.

    At the moment, we only have numbers for the southeast US. Perhaps we will get more in the next few days.

    Not sure if VA is part of the SE Toyota region, but the MF there is .00190 and the residual is 63%.
