Subaru B9 Tribeca Lease Questions



  • Hi All,

    Just came back from a testdrive and was torn between outback XT and the Tribeca. I was told that there were no more lease incentives for the Tribeca in Nov. Can anyone confirm or list their best lease price for the Tribeca. I love the turbo in the XT and the space in the Tribeca. Which one to lease....

    k, this might sound stupid, so apologies in advance,
    I'm interested in a 2007 Tribeca, however the starting numbers that were given by a dealer here in Dallas were way off scale.
    I'm looking for a limited with DVD and NAV, right now the subaru website only has a special on the base version, can I negotiate with the dealer using that as a base?
    i'm intrested in a 24 mnth/36mnth lease (whichever is a better deal), the money factor i'm being offered is .0032.
    anyone out there to help me out on this?

    Go to this site to see the dealer cost and use that as a basis for negotiation. Depending on your region there might be a $1250 rebate. If there isn't then you should possibly wait until the first of December since it will likely be re-introduced.
  • MF @ .0032 sounds high (was it a typo?). The MF on my lease was: .0023 @ 36mos with 12K/yr.

    thanks guys.....
    will check the website out.

    nope, that was the money factor, since I have new credit (only four months old, AND i'm a recent arrival here). that was the money factor given to me.
    On a 2006 demo; 7 pas DVD NAV with 5000 miles on the odo, he was offering me a 24 mos lease for 788 a month.
    Selling Price: 31500
    24 month lease

    doesn't sound right, even to my novice ears.
    2580 down (including taxes)

    I just spoke with my salesperson.

    This # is not unheard of. There is no longer any lease programs from Subaru for 06's, hence the high MF. Also, The residual must be lowered to reflect the 5000 miles on the car.

    This combined with your credit status can produce a high lease #.

    Simple solution - Buy an 06',or lease an 07'.
  • Damn... Almost 800 a month.... I can lease a X5 for less.....

    That's crazy money. Honestly? Our beach condo's mortgage is less than that. A lot less. :D

    guess it was skewer-the-newbie day at the dealership.
    guess will wait till december when better deals come about.........btw, is having new credit (5 months old, since i'm a new arrival to the country) that big a stigma?

    thanks guys, will keep treading the boards I guess.

    No idea, hopefully a banker can answer that for us? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? ;)

  • Hi John. If you are talking about 2006 models, what you were told is correct. Subaru is no longer providing lease support on '06s. As a result, if you want to lease right now, you would be much better off going with a 2007 model. Both the 2007 Tribeca and 2007 Outback have a little lease support on them right now. Probably not as much as they will later on in the model year though.

  • Hi khanzh. The selling prices of all Subaru Tribeca models are negotiable. Furthermore, Subaru is providing lease support on all of them as well. Having said this, the money factor that you were quoted for this truck is way too high. Subaru's current buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Tribeca 7-Passenger Limited with DVD and NAV is only .00230. Make sure that this is the factor that is used to calculate your vehicle's monthly payment. Don't bother with a 24 month lease of this truck. Its 24 month lease program is terrible.

  • Car-man... this is helpful, I'm about to see about leasing a 5 pass LTD w/o NAV or DVD. Does the same deal apply?

    And for this newbie, what does the .00230 translate to in APR?


  • .0023 X 2400 = approx. 5.52% APR

  • I would like to get some information on Subaru's current lease program.

    I am interested in a 2007 7 pass Base Tribeca
    MSRP: 33150
    Neg Price: 29500

    Want to lease for 36 mos @ 15,000 miles/year
    I am in Louisiana where my tax is 9% and is payable monthly.
    I would prefer to put 0 down.

    What am I looking at with regards to monthly price and typical fees due at the beginning of a lease? Also what about the residual value (is the residual value % taken from the MSRP or the Neg Price?

  • I'm glad that you found that info helpful, ed. You can convert money factors into approximate APR equivalents by multiplying them by 2400. So a money factor of .00230 would be equivalent to an interest rate of around 5.52%.

    Subaru Finance's buy rate money factor for leases of the 2007 B9 Tribeca 5-Passenger Limited model is the same as if it for the 2007 7-Passenger Limited model, but the 5-Pass.'s residual values are 1% lower.

  • Greetings sbuhler. Let's work up a lease payment for this truck and see what we come up with. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a base 2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca 7-Passenger with an MSRP of $33,150 and a selling price of $29,500 through Subaru Finance right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $440. With this deal, at lease signing you would have to pay your truck's first month's payment, a security deposit equivalent to that payment rounded up to the nearest $25 increment, Subaru Finance's $595 acquisition fee, and any required state taxes or fees at signing. When negotiating the selling price for your lease of this truck, keep in mind that Subaru is currently providing $1,250 dealer cash on leases of it.

    Vehicles' residual values are based upon a percentage of their full MSRPs, including the destination charge and the MSRPs of any options that can be residualized.

  • Does someone have the money factor and residual value for the Tribeca B9, 36 mos, 15k per year? Thanks.
  • Car_man, do you have Subaru's current MF and residual for the B9 5-passenger Limited, at both 36 and 39 mos, 15k per year? Thanks in advance.
  • i am really looking to avoid paying a down payment on a lease and am curioius to know if that is negotiable. the tribeca lease right now is $299/mo with $2800 down, whereas the outback lease is $289/mo with $0 down. i would prefer the tribeca, but want to avoid the money down...

    if the down payment is tough to get them to budge on, how about lowering the monthly payment?
