Subaru B9 Tribeca Lease Questions

  • No problem umybuddy. I am not all that familiar with how sales tax is calculated on leased vehicles in your area, but you may be able to find additional information on this subject by visiting one of the following sites: New York State Department of Motor Vehicles Internet Office or New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. I personally would roll any sales tax that you have to pay into your car's lease payment. If you pay all of your truck's tax in advance and it is totaled in an accident or stolen, you don't get a refund.

  • Here's the information that you are looking for, jkd111. If you were to lease a 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca 5-Passenger Limited without navigation through its captive finance company right now for 36 months with 12,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00080 and 60%, respectively.

  • Mid-City Subaru in Chicago. The Subaru sales manager was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Great deal and no typical dealer BS! Very low pressure and extremely willing to accomodate.

    Traded in a 05 Lexus RX330 for the B9. Subaru is MUCH easier to drive. Not quite as many bells and whistles, but a better driving truck. If you can turn on and wash your own headlights, not much is different from the RX. And our lease payment is almost $175 less a month!

    Great truck, great lease program
  • I live in Seattle, WA and my wife and I are interested in the Tribeca 5 passenger limited edition. At first, I thought it'd be too expensive, but then I happened across the current lease deal.

    For $1999 down (~$2800 out the door after all fees and taxes), a 36mos lease (12K miles/yr) would be $300+tax. Turns out the money factor is 0.0008. Not sure about the purchase price, but based on my calculations, should be right at or below invoice.

    Basically, wanted to get people's input on the following:

    1. Does this seem like a good deal? I'm actually hoping to forgothe down payment and have it spread over the 36 mos. Do most dealers seem to do this?

    2. If I wait until December, am I likely to get a better deal? Based on the trends, it appears the money factor is falling, but my concern is that if the residual falls as well, the lease payments may actually be higher.

    Thanks in advance.

  • We're actually looking at an '06 B9 Tribeca Limited 7 Passenger also and found the following offer on Subaru's website:

    Monthly Payment: $299 plus tax.
    Term: 36 months.
    Mileage: 12,000/yr
    Security Deposit: $0
    Down Payment: $2,000
    Acquisition Fee: $595

    The only options on these cars seems to be the NAV and DVD, which we're not really interested in. Are these real offers? The deal almost seems to good to be true based on some of the posts in this forum. Is it? Do these cars just not exist without DVD, NAV or a combination of the two?

    We actually drove one last night for the first time. Great car, the biggest negatives we saw were the smallish rear window and somewhat limited cargo space compared to the Honda Pilot. Our salesperson wasn't familiar with the pricing offer we discussed (and he basically hung around after hours to assist us), so he said he'd look into it this morning and call us. He did, saw the offer, and said they'd make it work somehow. It's the "somehow" that I wonder about.

    Any thoughts? Seems like a great deal, right? Or am I missing something. Even if we don't put anything down, that would bring our payment up about $60 to $360/mo plus tax.

    We should try to compare apples to apples.

    My list is about 35K, invoice is 32,500

    Also MF's and residuals vary for each trim level.

    at 15K/yr my 24 month lease is $378.00

    be careful not to have your miles exceed 36K total unless you take an extended warranty which will add to your net cost.

    I leased my forester for 3 years/36K but only used 21K - I therefore bought it off lease.

    IMO the lease is good only if you bring it back with no more miles left to drive and no more time left to drive them.

    I will pay $9696 to use the car(24 MONTHS) for 36K miles.

    In the same time You will pay $9540 to use the car for up to 45K miles. But your last year will be expensive if you can't spread out your usage evenly for 3 years.
    Your last year will incur additional warranty costs as well.

    Tailoring the lease to your requirements may save you more money than the lease "deal" itself.
  • Hi Car man,

    I'd like to get the (1) residual, (2) lease money factor, and (3) estimated monthly payment (with $0 down) for the 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca Limited 5-Passenger with Navi, with an MSRP of $35,000 and a selling price of $34,000. I'd like the numbers both for a 36 month, 12,000 miles/year lease and for a 48 month, 12,000 miles/year lease.


  • Does anyone know if there is lease cash with the 5 or 7 passenger Tribeca's and how much it would be? Thanks
  • css1css1 Posts: 247
    Until Jan 3rd there is a $1,000 rebate on 7 pass tribecas taken from stock. - purchase or lease.

    In addition they are offering up to 500 in either Subaru bucks, or 1st lease payment if you own or are trading in a 2001 Subaru or newer. This is par of their GTP program.

    The 7's are a better deal right now.

    Thanks to this forum, I was able to get a great deal. The dealer is Bill Bryan in Orlando.

    BTW, love the vehicle! It's replacing a 2003 MDX that is in for its 4th A/C repair (also had to replace the drive shaft) -- I can't take Acura svc. anymore in Orlando, only 1 very busy dealer.
