    Hi chuck10553. Chase's April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Mazda3s Sedan Sport GT with 12,000 miles per year are .00222 and 59%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00195 and 56%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 48 month lease are .00210 and 48%.

    As roadcrazy mentioned, all of Mazda's official lease offers are run through Chase.

    Welcome becksca. Manufacturers' official advertised leases usually leave a little meat on the bone so to speak. Savvy consumers who are in an area that has a decent level of competition are usually able to negotiate lower selling prices on leased vehicles than the ones that are used to arrive at officially advertised payments.

    Shop around for the lowest possible selling price for the car that you are interested in and then have the dealer calculate your monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor. If I was in the market for a Mazda3 right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of a couple hundred dollars over dealer invoice. You can look up the exact invoice price of the specific car that you are interested in over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

    Can you also give me the lease numbers for a Mazda 3 s GT 4dr Auto, 42 month, 10K miles.

    Much appreciated

    All,

    What type of lease money factors are you getting elsewhere, I was quoted almost 6% here in FL. My wife and I have stellar 800+ credit and we are looking at a Mazda3 I Sport for our son. Maybe it is wiser to buy at 0%, any thoughts are all appreciated!!

    Car_man,

    I believe you may have mistyped the residual value in your reply to hugo5's inquiry. I had inquired about the same vehicle for a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year and you supplied me with a residual value of 58%.

    Therefore, I believe the correct residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Mazda3 s Grand Touring Hatchback with 10,000 miles per year is 61%.

    May 2010 Mazda 3 s Grand Touring lease numbers:

    Sedan (36 months / 15,000 miles per year): 0.00185 and 57%
    Hatchback (36 months / 15,000 miles per year): 0.00181 and 58%
    Hatchback (36 months / 10,000 miles per year): 0.00181 and 61% (residual value upon confirmation by Car_man)

    Just got a new lease on a 2010 Mazda 3 s GT auto sedan with Moonroof package (MSRP $24,445) for $293 a month, sign and drive ($0 down)

    42 month lease with 10k miles a year.

    Dealer was Ramsey Mazda, NJ

    Hello,

    I am interested in the car above. From the earlier posts, I see the residual should be 60% for 36 months and 10k miles. The money factor should be .00185. Can these be confirmed?

    Also, on the Mazda website I see something about a $1,550 lease credit. Does anyone have information on this rebate or a target price related to invoice?

    Finally, I am trying to decide about making a deal in May or next month. Thoughts on this? Radude, that is an excellent deal so I'm thinking the June numbers may be worse.

    Thanks in advance for any help one can provide.

    Hi Theras,

    Here is some more info on the deal I got. The negotiated price was $19,862.The invoice was $23,118. MSRP $24,445

    According to the dealer, the price he gave me was the lowest possible price he can do without loosing money. It includes:

    $1,550 Mazda Customer Lease Support
    $500 Owner Loyalty Cash
    $456 dealer's hold-back
    $750 dealer money, that they get at the end of the month for every vehicle sold

    If you look at the current lease specials posted on mazadausa.com website and expand the details on a Mazda 3 lease, you will see that it includes the $1,550 Mazda Customer Lease Support. It's not a widely publicized rebate but it's is available this month. It's a manufacturers rebate and can be applied to any price (the dealer gets it for every new mazda 3 they lease).

    The money factor is .00193, and the residual is 55%. That's for a 42 month, 10K miles a year lease for a GT auto sedan (the numbers may be slightly different for a manual).

    Good luck!
  • $305 / 42 Months/ 0$ Down/ Mazda 3 GT Full Package (Technology, sunroof, bose, leather, heated seats, power seats, sataellite radio.. etc...)

    What do you think?
    what should the resiedulal, money factor be? thank you
  • raduderadude Posts: 50
    If that's an offer you got I would jump on it.

    BTW what is the MSRP for that vehicle?
  • Hey. just added compass - wind deflector - mirror homelink...
    so now im at $307/ $0 down/ 42 Months / 12K/ One free oil change and tire rotation.

    MSRP: $25,500

    I need some things to ask and check before signing the contract.

    please as quick as possible. thank you
  • raduderadude Posts: 50
    If you're getting that offer from a dealer - jump on it.

    Just make sure there aren't any hidden fees that you have to pay and everything is included in the monthly payment. It should be a sign and drive.
  • therastheras Posts: 44
    Thanks Radude for the data. Sounds like you got a great deal. Does your price include local sales tax? Also, was it truly $0 up front or were there some fees??
    From your post, I'm thinking it might be smart to do this in May.
  • raduderadude Posts: 50
    Theras,

    My price already includes NJ sales tax of 7%. All the fees were included also. I did not pay a single penny, just signed the paperwork and drove off (a true sign and drive).

    Some dealers may try to convince you that you still have to pay some fees upfront, but that's not true. They can always factor everything into the monthly payment.

    I also paid nothing at all. no fees what so ever. and the $307 includes the tax...
    its a sign and drive.

    You got a great deal!

    Enjoy your new ride

    Just picked up a black 2010 mazda 3 hatchback sport. 24 month lease 12/k miles a year and paid nothing at signing and only have 23 payments of $250 after tax. Thought I got a good deal, are people seeing similar prices?
  • therastheras Posts: 44
    Thanks again Radude! I am going to visit the dealer on Thursday night and wanted to make sure I had enough info.

    I'm hoping the dealers in Pennsylvania also have the $750 dealer bonus to work with.

    If you have any additonal input, let me know.
  • raduderadude Posts: 50
    Theras,

    $23 K is definitely a good price.

    Carman/Radude,

    Could you please give the current lease figures for top tier credit 800+ for Mazda3, I'm in FL if that matters?? Any idea what Mazda will be doing in June with incentives??

    Thanks Very Much!!
  • raduderadude Posts: 50
    Melusa,

    The numbers will vary by model and by lease details.

    How many months and how many miles a year?
    What exact model you are looking to get?

    Not sure what June numbers will bring, If I had to guess I would say they will probably be higher.
  • epb999epb999 Posts: 9
    Hey radude -- Any chance you have the May numbers for leasing a 2010 Mazda3 S Sport automatic 4-door sedan, at 36 Months, 10k miles? Thanks so much!!
