  • Please would someone let me know what they think of a lease payment of about $490/month for a 36 month/10,000 mile on the new 2013, with navigation, and sticker of about $43,780.00. It seemed alittle high to me but maybe since it has been awhile since I have had a new car I am out of touch. Thank you to your replies.
  • Car Man,

    Do you have access to the lease numbers for the new 2013 C Class?
    I am looking into a C350 Sedan, either a 2 or 3 year lease depending on residuals, with 12k miles per year.

    Thanks

    Hi gcspencer. Mercedes-Benz Financial's August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 C350 Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are standard and 72%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are 63%.

    Mercedes' standard lease money factors vary by credit tier and possibly by region. I suspect that its current buy rate is around .00200 or so.

    Hi Car_man,

    Do you have the numbers for a 24 month lease of a 2013 C250 Coupe with 12,000 or 15,000 miles per year? Thanks! (If no 2013, then 2012 would be fine).

    2012 c250 sport sedan with premium one package, service car with 900miles on it. Lease deal is for $496 month for 48months 12k miles a year, $0 down and just first months payment. We haven't dug into all the numbers yet.

    I'm thinking initially $496 is way too high. Am I right?

    Hi Car Man,

    Can you give me the August residual and money factor for a 2013 MB C 250 Sedan ?

    Thanks !

    Hi luxurypreneur. Mercedes-Benz Financial's August residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2013 C250 Coupe is 62%.

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

    Mercedes is not currently providing any lease support on this model. As a result, if you were to lease one through MB Finance right now you would have to use its standard lease money factors.

    Hi datkins. Mercedes-Benz is not providing any lease support on the 2013 C250 Sedan right now either, so you're looking at the standard money factor for this model too. MB Finance's current 36-month, 15,000 mile per year residual value for this car is 59%.

    Hi Car Man, sorry I should have given more detail,

    This would be for a 24 month lease on a 2013 C250 Sedan at 12,000 miles per year.

    Also if you have the same on a 2012 C250 Sedan at 12,000 miles per year that would be great.

    Thanks !
  • I just came from the local Florida MB Dealer. I have never leased so maybe I am getting a good deal, but just do not know it. 2013 C350 - 24 months at 15k/yr was a factor of 71%. 2013 C250 24 mos at 15k/yr was a factor of 70%. I would be doing a one pay lease. Is this a good deal? What else should I be asking for? And what is a reasonable percentage off MSRP to expect. We expect to try to do a deal in the next day or two so I greatly appreciate any comments or suggestions. :confuse:

    Hi Bobkatgifts,

    I am getting ready to do a similar deal, however I am looking at a C250 at 24 months and 12k miles per hear. I am probably going to go with a 2012 model as opposed to the 2013 since their are much better incentives on the 2012 - and when you are leasing, you arent really worried so much about model years unless there is a clear upgrade or improvement. I will keep you posted. I also will be doing a one pay lease.

    Good Luck !
  • Hi CarMan,

    What are the lease numbers for 24month and 36month on 2012 C250 Sport Sedan and also for 2012 C300 4MATIC Sport Sedan with 7500miles or 10000 miles/year.

    Thanks
  • I was preparing to do a 1 pay lease on 2013 C-350. 15k/yr miles for 24 months. The salesman quoted a money factor of .000205 with a residual at 71%. Then he presented the lease form with over $5,000 in various MB lease fees - this is independent of any sales taxes and tag fees. I am top tier credit rating. Is this the way it realy is? :confuse:
  • datkinsdatkins Posts: 11
    No this is not the way it is. Ask for the OTD (out the door price) and use that to compare to other dealers offers. When you are looking to do a one pay, really the only comparison factor that matters is the OTD price, assuming that you are pricing the same vehicle. I just closed on a one-pay on a 2012 C250 for 24 months at 12k per year. $11,000 OTD. Unless you really want a 2013 (not a lot of difference that I am aware of other than the model year on the sticker), there are much better incentives on the 2012's.
  • Hi carman, can I please have the current residual and money factor for a 2012 C300, 10,000 miles per year, 36 month lease?

    Thank you!
  • Thanks for the reply - no, I am not stuck on a 2013 but I am stuck on C-350 that does not have Black Interior or Black Exterior. My OTD price on the above deal was $17,367 - that just seemed awfuly high. No, I have not completed the deal with this dealership in Lakeland, Fl.
  • Hi Guys!

    I'm on the verge of leasing a 2012 C-250 Sedan for 36 months and I've found out late about all this Money Factor and Residual business!

    Can anyone provide the data 10k, 12k, and 15k for that model car for August? (top tier and otherwise)

    Thanks!!!
  • The money factor is negotiable and is based on your FICO score.
  • OK Here ya go and thx to all for your informative posts, payback time:
    $46K sticker C3004Matic Lux
    24mo 10Kmi Due at Driveaway at $470
    Monthly at $436 incl tax
  • No problem datkins. It happens all the time.

    Mercedes-Benz is not providing any lease support on 24-month leases of the 2013 C250 Sedan right now either, so again you're looking at the standard money factor. MB Finance's current 24-month, 15,000 mile per year residual value for this car is 69%.
