Jeep Wrangler Lease Questions



  • Hi Car Man,
    What a great site. I'm glad I found it before heading to the dealership. Could you provide me with the money factor I'd qualify for if my credit score is 659? What range would I have to be in to get the best one .00332? I'm not sure if it matters but I'd like 36 month/15000 mile. Thanks!
  • Hello all, not sure if this is a silly question but, what happens if you get into a no fault accident while you're in a lease? Aside recovering money from your insurance company and repairing the car, would i incur additional charges from the dealership?
    (I am debating whether to lease or buy).
    thnxs much.

  • Hi. There’s a website for evaluating leases. Url is . I found it very helpful. You may want to email Al directly with your trade in / what you owe question. You can also buy the kit and plug in numbers yourself and it will evaluate your lease. (I’m still negotiating mine)
  • Hi mr_anton89. You weren't taken to the cleaners. Chrysler Financial charges a $450 disposition fee on every vehicle that it leases. Many banks charge this sort of fee nowadays.

    My lease on a 03 VW Jetta is up in May and I am looking to lease a 07 2dr Wrangler. Does anyone know if it is wise to turn in the Jetta to Jeep so that they can pay it off. Are there hidden cost in this? Do I benefit in any way? Or is it wise to turn in to VW, pay the $350 turn in fee and start fresh with Jeep? The last payment on the jetta is in April, thats when I am looking to get the jeep. Thanks.
  • It depends on your payoff/buyout amount as to whether or not you should get rid of the Jetta now. Call your leasing company or dealer and ask for the payoff amount. You can get the payoff amount for the rest of your payments or the payoff on the car. If you just pay off the lease then you don't have to worry about trading it in, but you still have to pay the $350. If the payoff on the car is good, you can trade the car into the dealer. They may be an account fee for ending the contract early. Hope this helped.

    Hi sinnombre. Here's the information that you're looking for. Chrysler Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4-Door 4WD with 15,000 miles per year are .00345 and 67%, respectively. The residual value for an otherwise identical lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher. Chrysler Financial charges a security deposit equivalent to your vehicle's monthly payment rounded up to the nearest $25 increment and a $700 acquisition fee at lease signing. Like most banks today, Chrysler Financial leases are closed end. Some states do allow lessees to add tax, title, and license to their vehicle's capitalized cost rather than pay them at lease signing.

    The Jeep Unlimited Sahara 4x4 took a little time to find in the color I wanted (Rescue Green), but it is finally on its way after my salesman found one in So. California (I'm in Nor Cal). MSRP is 25, 570, sale price he is quoting me is $26,598 - still about $2k above invoice in my estimation. Can I get him lower even though he had to do a trade for it? What is a good residual/ money factor? I am looking at a 39-month lease, which on these numbers is $402.67 per month. My credit score is over 700 (738 Experian).

    Also, why does Chrysler do 39-month leases vs 36 when the warranty is only for 36? Thanks for your help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yesterday I received delivery on my 4 dr Unlimited Sahara.

    10,500 mile / 39 month

    MF = .00375 (9%!)
    Bank Acq Fee = 700
    Lease Term Fee = 450
    Resid: 70%

    Car is sweet.... :)

    PO'd that the MF went from .00345 to .00375 in a week...

    Hicksville, NY dealer

    Would appreciate hearing from others to see if they had same financials....

    GOOD LUCK !!!

    I was hoping someone here could take a look at my girlfriend's lease. I decided to look at this and I think she may have been taken a bit.

    I've posted a link below to the main part of the contract. I thought that would be easier. My calculations seem to be pretty close, but the one thing that freaks me out is the total of payments in box 4 at the top. It seems pretty high and when added to the residual it adds up to like $37,000.

    Also, my calculations get about .00394 for the money factor...about 9%. This seems very high, especially since her credit is great (764).

    If someone could please check this out and shed some light on things that would be great. Please click here for the link.

    Thanks for your time!

    Given that I am paying $400 a month for 27 for my wrangler with the same msrp and the monthlys were the same +/- up to 39 i'd say thats about right. Thats without going into details. But I got mine for 600 below 1% below invoice with about $500 due and 6.25% ohio tax on the monthly.

    Hi Tim. Chrysler Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 39 month lease of a 2-Door Jeep Wrangler Sahara with 12,000 miles per year are .00345 and an astounding 70%, respectively.

    Hi redfox85. The Wrangler's buy rate lease money factor did not increase to .00375. It is still .00345, which still isn't good, but given this truck's amazing residual values leasing one isn't as bad as one would initially think given the high money factor. If the dealer tries to charge you a higher factor than .00345, they are trying to mark your truck's factor up to add additional back-end profit to your deal (or you don't qualify for Chrysler Financial's best rates).

    Hi sdsponger. The contract that you posted a link to contains this truck's capitalized cost, but I still need to know what its full MSRP is. The MSRP will show me how much of a discount your girlfriend was given on her Wrangler. It will also enable me to use Chrysler Financial's current lease program to estimate what her monthly payment should be. Off of the top of my head it doesn't look as though she was "taken," but if you provide me with the MSRP I will be able to give you a more thorough analysis of this deal.

    Thanks for the insight. I have sent letters to the dealer, to Chrysler Financial and the BBB. .00375 is just not right. I have great credit and a strong income. They wanted to make up for the fact that I got the 4 door Unlimited Sahara for 1% under invoice....

    We're thinking of leasing a 4 door Wrangler Unlimited. I found a lease calculator and input the following info-
    .00345 money factor
    70% residual, 12K miles
    36 months
    MSRP of $23214
    2300 cap cost
    I get a monthly payment of $257.
    That's close to same amount on the Jeep website. It seems way too good to be true. Are these calculators pretty accurate? We have excellent credit.
