  • Hi supraner1. The money factor is important to know because it is used to calculate the interest portion of lease payments. Dealers are sometimes allowed to mark vehicles' money factors up to add additional, hidden back-end profit to deals. That's why one should always check to make sure that the dealer is using the correct money factor to calculate their lease payment. Not to mention the fact that it enables consumers to calculate payments on their own if they want to.

    Car_man,
    I am shopping for 2013/2012- Mazda3 Hatchback Grand Touring,can you please provide money factor for a 15k/yr 36 for Jan2013.
  • Could you provide the money factor and residual for the 2013 mazda3 i touring? If my math is right from the mazda web site, it appears to be 66%, which is quite high, but do not have the money factor to prepare an offer. thanks
  • Certainly randy50. Chase's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Mazda3 i Hatchback Grand Touring with 15,000 miles per year are .00135 and 58% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    There is a $500 dealer cash incentive on leases of this car right now. Make sure to take it into account during your negotiations.

    Mazda is not providing lease support on the Mazda3 any longer.

    Hey Carman!

    I'm also looking for the residual value and money factor for a 36-month lease of the 2013 mazda 3 i Sport Sedan with automatic transmission and 10,000 miles per year? ... I got a quote today and it looked "interesting", but I just want to be sure.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Car_man,

    Would you please post the lease rates (residual and money factor) for a 12,000 mile/year lease for 36 months beginning in April for zip 66502 (Kansas) for both a
    2013 Mazda3 i Touring Hatchback automatic
    2013 Mazda3 i Grand Touring Hatchback automatic
    as well as any incentives the dealer may get. For all I know, they're exactly the same, but I just wanted to be sure.

    Thanks!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,518
    Greetings will_ksu. I'd be happy to help you out. Chase's April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Mazda3 i Touring Hatchback automatic with 12,000 miles per year are .00012 and 59% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2013 Mazda3 i Grand Touring automatic would be the same, other than the fact that the residual value would be 1% higher.

    There's a small cash incentive on the Mazda3 Sedan, but nothing on the Hatchback model.

    Hello,

    Appreciate these forums-
    I was quoted on the i-Touring Black Mica Hatchback Mazda m3 15k miles for 36months. Quoted 19800 + fees. And 175+tax=$191 month for 36 months w/ 1500 downpayment and used trade values bout 500 $. Is this worth considering? Any other information I should attain?

    Hello everyone, I am looking at leasing a 2013 mazda3 hatchback. Am on a lease calc site trying to figure out payments based on car price, money factor (.00012), and residual (59%). The lease deal they are advertising isn't on the hatchback so it is a moot point anyway but seems awfully affordable. Advertisement is on mazda site for the sedan is $2K dn and 149./mth. Seems reasonable. But I want the hatchback.

    Anyway, so if I work out a good sales price on the touring auto one then hit them with lease payments what should I be looking at? Maybe I can talk them out of one for $18,500 all in or out the door. Total cash walk out price I mean. If money factor is .00012 and residual is 59% I am figuring $217/mth. Did I do this correct? The advertised car is $149. might have to go with ad? What do the experts think?

    Thank you so much everyone.

    Not a lease expert but I believe the $149/mo special is for the i SV sedan, which doesn't have the SkyActiv engine.

    Would expect the lease rates on the hatchback to be higher.

    Good luck!
  • chadecoenchadecoen Posts: 13
    Ah ha, should have considered that. Skyactive is one of the main reasons I am looking at a gas vehicle instead of a little diesel. Really like the look of the hatch and skyactive MPG is a bonus! I think I am just going to go in to my local dealer guns blazing demanding a 170ish/mth lease on the hatch. Either they will figure out a way to get me there or I can go elsewhere. I only want to give them a grand up front though. They may want a little more than that to get me there. We will see.

    Hi CarMan'
    Looking for Money Factor and Residiual % for 2012 Mazda3 I-Touring Automatic and the rates for the 2012 I Grand Touring Automatic. While reading previous posts money factor seems to be .00012 Is that correct? Looking at sale prices of $17645 & $18476 respectively, these include the military & loyalty that I don't qualify for. How much can I expect to deal down after adding the $1000 back in. The cars dropped $500 since we were in on Saturday. Is there any more movement on price?

    Thanks!

    How did it go? Did you get the payment you wanted?

    Hello mb116. Mazda isn't providing lease support on leftover 2012 Mazda3 Sedan models any longer. This is pretty typical this late in the model year.

    If you really want this car, you will have to either pay cash for it, taking advantage of the $2,250 cash incentive or finance it using the special financing program at 0% for 5 years / 1.9% for 6 years plus a $1,000 cash incentive.
