11Do you know if the numbers you gave in December for residual value and money factors are still valid, or if there are new ones for the new year?

Cheers,

21Thanks in advance for your efforts. Can you tell me the residual and money factors for the new year? I'm looking at 2007 Touring with Man'l Tranny in both sedan and hatch versions. Figure 12k miles and 24 and 36 month terms. Thanks!

21I meant to specify the "S" version of the car....how do the numbers change if I specify Mazda3 S Touring with Man'l Transmission in both Sedan and Hatch. Thanks!

21Any way to confirm the numbers? The Dealer (Tully Mazda in Nashua, NH) is quoting me a residual of 67% for the Touring S Sedan. Just want to know, since a % point or two could make a difference in my decision. Thanks.

1I read through this forum and I am just wondering. Do you think lease deal on this month is pretty good one? I am seriously lease the car from mazda for Mazda 3 sedan or hatchback. Can I deal on this special price against dealer?

If so, how much do you think I can ask for? Please, answer with your best knowledge. Thank you. :surprise:

15My first question is, how accurate is the lease calculator provided on the Mazda website? Based on the information I entered, my estimated monthly payments for a MAZDA3 i Touring 4-Door Automatic should be $115.00 including destination and package/option charges after factoring in my cash down payment. The options I selected are: All Weather Floor Mats ($60) and Door Edge Guards ($100). The MSRP is $17,810. I want to put the maximum cash down payment, which in this case is $4452. I've selected a 27 month lease with 12,000 miles per year.

This is my first new car and I'm working with a fixed income. I need to ensure enough money is available for other expenditures too (not including car related expenses) so I think leasing to own, although more costly in the long haul, is the best option for me.

So, do you think the estimation provided by the Mazda lease calculator is accurate? If not, how much off is it by your calculations? If it helps any, I live in Muskegon Michigan.

Thanks a lot!

15Thanks

30Thank you.

9Can you please provide the buy lease money factor and residual value for configuring a lease (I believe they vary according to length of lease terms, so I am open on length) for an '07 Mazda3 S 5-door Touring model?

Thanks!

Thanks.

38,515Let me begin by saying that it is not a good idea to make a large down payment on a leased vehicle. Consumers who make one risk losing it if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. You can and should lease any car that you want without making any sort of capitalized cost reduction.

I would be happy to use Mazda's current lease program to estimate what your monthly payment should be, but in order for me to do so I need you to provide me with the selling price of the car that you are interested in. Always remember that the selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. For now I will assume that you will be able to negotiate a $500 discount. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2007 Mazda3 i Touring Sedan that has an MSRP of $17,810 and a selling price of $17,310 through Mazda Credit right now for 27 months with 12,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment should be around $261.
