    Hi - Can you tell us what the money factor is/was & residual value/percentage?

    Car Man,

    Can you tell me the May MF, residual and incentives for the GS in South FL? 3 yr 36k and 3 yr 45k. Are they different for F-Sport? A local salesperson told me there's $2000 dealer cash through the end of May. What percentage off MSRP should I be shooting for?

    Hi ydol. According to the latest information that I have seen, Ford Credit's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 GS 350 RWD with 10,000 miles per year are .00095 and 70% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are .00095 and 60%.

    Lexus is currently providing a decent $2,500 cash incentive on leases of this car right now. Make sure to take it into account when negotiating the capitalized cost for your lease.

    Hi dsmerc74. According to the latest information that I have seen, Lexus Financial Services' May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 27-month lease of a 2013 GS 350 F-Sport with 12,000 miles per year are .00095 and 66% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    When negotiating your deal, make sure to take advantage of the $2,500 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of this car.

    Hi orion7701. Lexus Financial Services' May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 GS350 F-Sport with 15,000 miles per year are .00095 and 67% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The money factor for an otherwise identical 27-month lease would be the same, but I believe the residual value would be 3% or so lower.

    If you were to lease with only 12,000 miles per year, this car's residual values would be 2% higher.

    There is indeed a $2,500 cash incentive on leases of this car right now.

    Hi mlewis2. I haven't seen the specific lease program for your area this month, but I can tell you that if your credit is in good shape the money factor that you were quoted is definitely too high. At worst, the money factor for this car is probably around .00095 in your region right now...if not better. Make sure to try to get the dealer to lower the money factor on your deal.

    I don't personally know exactly how much dealers in your area are willing to discount the GS right now, but I can tell you that Lexus is currently providing a $2,500 cash incentive on leases of this car. If I was in the market for one, I personally would shoot for a selling price of around $500 to $1,000 over the dealer invoice price that is listed here at Edmunds.com minus the cash incentive. Here's a link to the pricing section of this site for your convenience: New Vehicle Pricing.

    Hey mlewis2. LFS' May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month, 10k lease of this car should be at worst .00095 and 60% for top tier customers. There may even be a money factor enhancement in your area that makes it better than that.

    Hi Minirad. Let me preface this response with the statement that I have not seen the Lexus lease program for your specific area yet this month.

    Having said that, Lexus Financial Services' May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 GS350 with 15,000 miles per year are .00095 and 57% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The residual value for a lease with 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.

    Lexus is providing a $2,500 cash incentive on leases of this car this month.

    As I said though, Toyota's distribution agreement in the Southeastern U.S. makes its programs a little different there.

    Hello,

    I am in Texas and was looking to lease new GS 350, can you please provide some information on current lease options and what should I be expecting payment wise. I am not looking for F sport model, just premium package which I believe MSRP around 52500.

    Thanks

    hi cahnwan - thats sounds pretty on point for a gs350 F - can you tell me which dealer or city? thanks!
  • cahnwancahnwan Posts: 2
    The dealer is Park Place Lexus in Grapevine, Texas. That said, I was told the promos (conquest and lease cash) expired May 31 (should have been 6/3?).

    On side note, I liked the F Sport's handling especially during cornering; it stayed on the ground with little body lean. But the car is also nosier and choppier than the GS 350 with Luxury pkg loaner I drove, especially on concrete pavement that is pervasive in my neighborhood. After driven it for one day, ~200 miles. I decided to switch, figuring I am not getting younger (I am 63); as much as I like the F Sport's capabilities and appearance, Luxury pkg would be more practical. Thus I asked Park Place what if I can switch to GS 350 Luxury. They offered to exchange to less MSRP/priced one for free if deal was made before 6/1, after which the 2500 cash lease incentive is no longer applicable. I picked a Fire Agate Pearl with Flaxen interior, Luxury Pkg, Park Assist, Blind Spot, preferred accessory, navigation, spoiler, free tint, MSRP 56993 (in contrast to the F Sport, which msrp was 57313) and did a even trade-in on 5/31. Picked it up on 6/1 and happy with my decision; as much as I miss the F Sport. Kyle, the internet sales manager, was very helpful.

    Car_man did i post my #685 incorrectly? no one is responding to me, not sure if i did it right. Thanks

    Hi kbest1. Your post was just fine. Sometimes people reply to posts and sometimes they don't. I personally try to respond to every post that is personally addressed to me.

    The buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 GS 350 with 15,000 miles per year are .00095 and 57% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers in most areas. This factor is enhanced to a better factor in certain areas, but I have not seen what it is specifically for Texas.

    MSRP - $57950
    MF - .0005
    Residual - 68%
    Term - 27 months

    Drive off - $1500 (including 1st month's payment)

    Thanks Car Man!

    Jadcam, that's an amazing deal - how'd you get to those numbers? Mine are starting the convo at 520 plus 1800 down for a 27.. With 10k!

    Also can you list the options you got from the window sticker that have a charge?

    Thanks mate and congrats on the new car!

    Can anyone else confirm if the June 2013 Money Factor for all GS350's (including the F-Sport) have changed from .00095 to .0005? Or does this vary by region? Am looking in Virginia.
