Ford Focus Lease Questions

  • car_man - thank you for all this incredibly helpful information. Is that a typo or the base lease rate in Boise for a 24-month lease on a Focus really 0.25%? (I was just quoted 1.25% so am confirming they are too high). Thanks.

    Do you have leasing information on the Focus ST in the MD/VA/DC area?

    Any incentives? Conquest? Etc?

    Hi cellice. For some reason Ford has decided not to provide any lease support on the ST version of the Focus. As a result, leasing one right now really doesn't make any sense. If you really want a Focus are are set on leasing, you should go with a different trim, like an S, SE, SEL or Titanium.

    hi all, I got an email from a dealer in TX saying that there's a special memorial day lease for the focus SE (20.310 MSRP) for $ 229 per month for 24 months. $0 down but first payment and TT&L due at signing.
    oh, and 10.5 miles per year.

    do you know if all the dealers will have this or only this one? and would it apply to the SE with other packages (like the appearance one 201A)? I would expect a slight price increase in this case of course.

    Hey all,

    I'm trying to figure out how much my monthly payment should be for this car in Texas.
    Here is the information I have received thus far from the dealer:

    First response: "Lease: Including the $11,750 rebate and lease residual , your remaining balance is roughly $14,370 Retail: Including $2,000 rebate, your total balance is $41,791"

    Second Response: "

    Since the $284 showing on the Ford.com site does not include TTL, you would be paying TTL + first payment as a down payment.
    Here is the breakdown for you based off of 10,500 miles per year:
    Includes TTL + first payment
    36 month lease
    $3,109 down payment (TTL + first payment)
    Payment = $282

    Excludes TTL
    36 month lease
    $361 down payment
    Payment = $361

    Thanks to anyone who can shed light on this;
    ALSO; I am struggling to understand how this car with the same capitalized cost has a 'cheaper' lease payment than the Fusion Hybrid SE

    Cheers.

    Hi Car_Man,

    Thanks for doing this service!

    Can you please tell me the money factor and residual on a 2013 Focus Titanium Automatic for 36 months and 12k miles? I will be leasing in California and qualify for X-plan.
  • akileezakileez Posts: 2
    Hey car_man,

    I've been quoted a residual of 43%( I think) for the focus EV, base is 40,490.
    With TTL my monthly payment wld be 361 w nothing down. (10,500 miles)
    There are rebates of 11,750. Money factor is 0.5%.
    Remaining balance is 14,370
    Tax is 6.25% - Texas.
    36 month lease

    Does this make sense and cld I get it cheaper?

    Thanks a million for any help!

    Hello car_man,

    Could you provide me money factor, residual, and any offers on a Ford Focus Titanium hatchback lease. Zip code is 02563, looking for 3 years 36K miles, either 2013 or 2014 model year

    Thanks!
  • In the 66212 zip code (KC). Does anyone have a good lease for a base Focus S

    I was told the lease rate was 2 percent for a 36 month.

    They're advertising a 199/mo X 36 with 1000 down, with the 300 dollar criminal admin fee, on a 2013 SE Focus with the deposit waived, but it doesn't state the cap cost or the mileage allowed.

    12353 is the buy out.

    Thk, Ashley
  • Hi car_man,

    I'm in the market for an EV. Could you please provide the lease rates (residual and MF) for the 2014 Focus Electric in Southern California? Looking for 36-months, 10,500 miles per year.

    Thanks!

    I'm sorry, but I don't have much information for Ford, this month..

    The 4th quarter residual for the Focus Electric is 45%, for 36mo, 10.5K/yr..

    I know there are large incentives in California on the Focus Electric, as the bank gets the tax credits, but I don't know what they are, or the money factors...

    regards,
    kyfdx

    Posted this a separate thread. Reposting here:

    This is really a general leasing question. I'm thinking of leasing a car through a special offer from the manufacturer (in this case $169/month for Ford Focus). The question is: is there anything I can negotiate in this lease (except the purchase price at lease expiry)? There are multiple Ford dealers nearby. Can I play them out against each other? Or is the special manufacture offer fixed?

    I have never leased a car, usually I have bought it outright, so I'm new to leasing.

    You can negotiate the sales price and money factor (interest rate). The residual factor is set by the finance company.

    I have been looking for a Ford Focus Electric and I quickly found they are in short supply. After calling 10+ dealers in my area I found one and they said they could get one on trade. They said another dealership had one on the way up from California (already on the truck). They said it they should have it within a week.

    Here is where I believe I made a big mistake. We negotiated the terms and signed the lease. The lease date started from the point we signed. Well, it has been 15 days and still no delivery. I'm basically paying for a car that I don't have, though technically the first payment isn't due until the second month. In retrospect, I should have made a deposit.

    Do I have any recourse or is this all on me? I don't mind waiting for the car, but I do mind paying for a car that I don't have. If it had taken 1 week as they originally suggested then it wouldn't be a big deal, but 2+ weeks is frustrating.

    If you haven't yet taken physical delivery of the car - that is, you haven't driven it off the dealer's lot - you may be able to unwind the deal and start over.

    You haven't given the dealer any money at this point - cash, check or credit card? If not, that too works in your favor.
