  • :D Hi,

    My husband and I were just discussing the pros and cons of leasing a Hyundai Tuscon. We saw that in our area (San Francisco) you can lease a Tuscon GLS for $169 a month, which seems like a great deal. The question we have is what are the lease terms for a lease like that? What kind of down payment? Do you pay taxes on a car you lease? What will the balloon payment be like at the end, if we choose to buy at the end of the lease? What kind of mileage is allowed? How long are the lease terms? Etc..

    Any glimpse you could give us into leasing a Tuscon would be helpful.

    Thanks a million,

    The Tucson lease program is very good right now. Give me some details about which model you want with what equipment and I can tell you what the lease should work out to be. On a cautionary note, the 2005s are almost gone and the lease expires at the end of the month, so don't think too long about it if you are going to do it.
  • It's not clear if you are describing some nationwide lease program or some thing specific that only your dealer is offering.
  • We are looking at the Hyundai GLS 2WD w/no additional options. We are planning to buy/lease something this week. We are just trying to figure out if leasing or buying a Tucson is in our best interest right now.
  • I was looking at the Hyundai website for deals on the Tucson in our area and it brought up the $169 lease. (San Francisco)
  • Hi Kristinichka. It sounds to me as though you live in California. Hyundai is advertising a special enhanced lease on the 2005 Tuscon in that state featuring a $169 monthly payment. In order to know the exact terms of this deal, you need to consult the advertisement that you saw. I just looked it up on the Hyundai site and the fine print states: "Lease a 2005 Hyundai Tucson GL 2WD A/T* for $169/month for 24 months, $1,799 customer cash down plus $2,900 HMFC origination support**, and $1,968 due at signing. See your local dealer for lease details. This program is effective from September 1, 2005 through September 30, 2005." As you can see, a $1,799 down payment is required to arrive at this payment. This advertised lease most likely allows 12,000 miles per year and is for 24 months. I am not sure what this truck's lease-end purchase price is though because it is never mentioned in the ad. In answer to your tax question, yes in most states consumers are required to pay sales tax on leased vehicles.

  • Hi Car_Man!

    Just wondering if you have MF's and RV's on the 2006 Hyundai Tuscon Line, specifically the GL 2WD and 4WD. I live in RI if that has any effect.

    Thanks so much.

  • thanks so much!!
  • Here where I live in New York, Hyundai has an advertising supplement inserted in newspapers. On the back page, at the bottom, in fine print it state that the lease-end purchase price is negotiated before the lease is signed. So it may be possible to get a real good deal with a low lease-end purchase price.
  • Hello alpine1. The fine print in the advertised lease that you saw is a little strange. Vehicles' lease-end purchase prices are based upon a percentage of their full MSRPs. This percentage is provided by banks to dealers and is not negotiable. In fact, the higher a vehicle's lease-end purchase price is, the better it is to lease. This is because with a higher purchase option price, you are paying less for depreciation in your truck's lease payment. The higher a vehicle's residual value is, the lower its lease payment will be. Some consumers are able to successfully negotiate a lower purchase price for their vehicles at the end of their leases, but you won't know if Hyundai Finance is willing to work with you on your truck's purchase price until a month or two before the scheduled end of your lease.

  • Hey car-man
    I am helping a friend who is interested in leasing a Limited o5 or 06 Tucson. Can you please give me the residual and MF on a 3/36 as well as the advertised 27/27? Thank you car-man......Dan
  • danf1danf1 Posts: 935
    MF for 39 mos on a 4x4 Limited is .00184 27 mos is.00211
    Residual for 39 mos 12k/yr is 49% 27 mos is 61%. Deduct 1% off of the residual for 15k/yr.
  • thank you danf1, is it the same for the two wheel drive?
  • danf1danf1 Posts: 935
    Front wheel drive money factors 27 .00176 and 39 .00204
    Residual values are 60% and 48%.

    There is a $1500 lease origination support (rebate) on the Tuscons as well, so keep that in mind as you are negotiating.

    Hello Host - Thank you for your thoughts on the Tucson lease. I copied the following from the advertisement, " Lease a Tucson for $199/month for 39 months. $2198 due at lease signing. Excludes taxes, title and license. Based on MSRP $18,945 including freight. Tucson closed-end leases offered through HMFC. Net cap cost $15,441 includes HMFC origination support $1,000. Lessee responsible for excess wear and mileage at $0.15/mile over 39,000 miles. Lessee has option to purchase at lease-end price negotiated at signing. Subject to HMFC credit approval. Only well-qualified lessees eligible. Offer ends 11/30/05." There is no mention of residual value in the advertisement. I'll try to contact HMFC for an explanation, but since the ad has expired I may not get a reply.
  • Hi car_man:

    Looking for mf & rp on 2006 GLS 4wd (12k/yr, 36 & 48 mons). Northern NJ area, purchasing end of May or early April 2006. Any incentives coming up? Too early for these figures? Thanks for any info.
  • Ooops,,, so sorry ... meant end of MARCH not end of May. Thank you.

    Greetings indigomuse63. If you were to lease a 2006 Hyundai Tuscon GLS 4WD through Hyundai Motors Finance right now for 39 months with 12,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00210 and 45%, respectively. I do not believe that Hyundai is currently running a 48 month lease on this truck. The only other term that I have seen for it is 27 months. In your area, Hyundai is currently providing $1,500 lease cash on this mode. Make sure to take this cash into account when negotiating your capitalized cost. These incentives are only scheduled to run through March 31st through, so if you want to lease in April or May you will have to check back with me then to see how thie truck's lease program has changed.

    Just when I thought I had a good price on a 2006 Tucson using the Costco membership price, I started reading about leasing and I think it's a better deal for me financially. I was quoted the invoice price of $21,756 and $1,000 manufacturer rebate, for a final cost of $20,756. Do I just go in there and see what it would cost to lease the car? Another question: if you have to put money down, is that held toward the purchase price or transfered to the next lease? I'm reading about the lease process, and this forum helps, but I'm not sure I understand it. And I'm supposed to make this decision in the next couple of days! I'd appreciate any advice.
