    Just signed this deal and I hope it is good:

    2015 RDX AWD base 36/10,000 miles $399.00/month $2794.00 due at signing

    Here is the Break Down: $1,080 Tax $595 Bank Fee $399 1st Month payment $398 Doc Fee $322 Plates and Reg $2,794 Total Taxes and Fees.

    Selling price: $34,468

    So this the first time I've ever leased and I was shocked when I saw the amount of interest you pay. I had the formula and for some reason, just concentrated on the money factor of .00160. That is 3.84%, so I kept thinking that is what I am paying, until I saw the number on the document. The residual is 63%, so 37,190 * .63 is 23,429.70, the sales price was 34,468, so I'm using 11,038.30 over 36 months. Divide that by 36 and it is 306.62. The payment is $399.00, so I'm paying $92.38 per month in interest, that is $3,325.70 in interest in 3 years. A whopping 30%.

    No kidding:

    The most common form of leasing seen today is automobile leasing. This is not because leasing a car is cheaper than buying one – on the contrary, overall it's more expensive. But auto leasing has two principal benefits that make it very popular despite the expense: You can always drive a fairly new car, and it's always under warranty; and, for the same budget, you can often get a larger, more luxurious, better-equipped car.

    You assume you are paying interest on only the depreciation portion of the lease, but that is incorrect. The bank that you are renting the car from buys it from the dealership. When they rent it to you, you are basically financing the car over the three years that you have it. You are borrowing the purchase price (or CAP cost).. The interest you calculated at 3.84% is correct. After all, you rented the whole car... ;-)

    Thanks for the clarification! You're right, I was assuming I was paying interest on the depreciation only. I know a lot of people lease but I wonder if people were told they would be paying 30% interest if they would still consider it. A tight wad like me would wait a little longer to save up more money and buy it out right. We plan on buying the car if it's as reliable as our past Honda products and would have saved some money just buying it now. Of course, we would need to come up with $17,000 down to get to $399/month, so I see the benefit of leasing just shocking at first. Live and learn.

    I've never leased. Other than some beaters in the early 80s, I'm on my fifth car since '82 and the shortest time I owned one was 10 years.

    Talk about boring. :D

    I seem to gravitate to discussions where posters like @cesarcoral‌ say stuff like "A tight wad like me would wait a little longer to save up more money and buy it out right."

    But it's a good chance to remind people who intend to lease that they need to consider the selling price of the car, just like buyers do.

    Can we please reconfirm these numbers from Michaell's August 3rd posting: 57% and .00160. $750 lease cash for the 2015 AWD RDX with Tech package and 15K miles for 3 years? I only see the $750 lease cash for military veterans, when I do the investigation. Please advise if all of these numbers still pertain.

    Also, please let me know when the these rates will expire and if things typically get better after Labor Day.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Confirm 57% for RDX AWD with tech for 36/15. Confirm .00160 MF. Lease cash is only available on 2014 MY - my apologies.

    Current numbers expire 9/2/14. Magic 8-ball doesn't have any insight as to what will happen after that.

    Thanks Michaell. Are these numbers you quote for the 2015, except for the Lease Cash? Finally, are the residual and money factor numbers consistent anywhere in the US?

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,545

    Those are the 2015 numbers.. Should be nationwide.

    RDX AWD - 63%

    RDX AWD Tech - 60%

    I don't have a MF for the 2014 RDX; assume standard MF of approximately .00200. $750 "inventory payout" for 2014 RDX.

    Use the 'car research' tab at the top of the page to link to any other available incentives.

  • Thanks. State is Washington. Earlier in the thread, it looked like residual was 63%.
    (with Tech - 62%
    w/o Tech - 59%
    Add 1% for 10K.)

    .00160 MF for WA

    Besides those numbers being swapped (Tech is almost always lower), a new program comes out just about every month.

  • My sales person at the less than reputable Acura dealership just quoted me 57% residual on AWD Tech. package. Do I tell him to pound sand? or are these numbers changing frequently?

    2015 Acura RDX AWD w/Tech is 57% residual for 36mo, 15K/yr.
    60% for 36mo, 10K/yr.

    Dealers can't change residuals. They won't be able to write a lease with any other number.

  • Went to the other Acura dealership in town. Called\emailed them first. They quoted me 63% residual on AWD Tech RDX, and .00154 MF. I said that didn't sound right, they claimed the numbers were right from Acura, i expressed my feelings again that this wasn't right, as per the other dealership and Edmunds. They claimed it was truth and gave me final numbers. I went down there, they said "oops, we had the numbers wrong, here are the right numbers".

    Word to the list - the numbers on this board reflect reality, i really appreciate the moderators that post them here. don't let a dealer tell you otherwise!
  • Hi all. Can someone please provide October residual and MF for 2015 RDX AWD w/ Tech? Thanks very much!
