  • What is the capitalized cost that went on the lease and did you have a trade-in?
  • Cap cost (after $863 of the rebate was applied) was $35030. I had no trade.

    Sounds good, congrats on the 'beca!

  • Hi Ben. If you were to lease a 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca Limited 5-Passenger with Navigation through Subaru's 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 58%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 48 month lease should be .00150 and 48%. Using these numbers, an MSRP of $35,000, and a selling price of $34,000, I estimate that this truck should have a 36 month zero down, pre-tax lease payment of around $424 and a 48 month payment of around $435.

  • December2005-Leased an 06 Tribeca
    7 pass, DVD, NAV (it was $1000 down and payment is $404.00
    36 months with 15k a year)
    It sounds as if I did not get the greatest deal on the lease after reading this site?

    Also has anyone had problems with the black model
    hairline scratches all over the body?

    Your lease was based on the special. Assuming you only paid 1000, out of pocket your payment includes tax,and there was no trade in then according to my unorthodox way of calculating :

    the special is:
    36 month / 12K per YR = 299/MO with 2800 due at signing plus taxes and tags.
    Your lease adds 9000 miles @ 100/1000 mi. ($900), 1000 down leaves 1800 + 200 for tags. add the 900 for a total of about $3000 to be rolled into the lease -

    Divide 3000 by 36 = 83

    299 + 83 x Tax? should equal your monthly

    Fill in your exact #'s. If I use 6% as the tax I get 404.92.

    This is pretty close for an approximation.

    You got a good deal-the other post with the "500" down most probably negotiated a better purchase price.

    Your difference is only about $320 after total layout from what I can see.

    Another factor to consider is that Invoice prices are different across the country. Regional advertising fees also affect the the selling price.

    Enjoy your Tribeca.

  • Hi Carman,

    I got some numbers from my dealer for a basic
    2006 5 passenger Tribeca with cloth interior.

    36 months, $390/month, residual of 58.9% (18,724).
    MSRP = $31,736. He wants 2,000 down + first month's payment. Money factor is .001.

    I read somewhere that for every $1000 down it lessens the monthly payment by $50, any truth to this?

    Not sure if it's better doing the lease special on the 7 passenger Limited model (as mentioned here) instead of doing this deal he gave me.

    Money down on a lease: Every $1000 lowers the payment by approximately $30/mo on a 36 month lease..

    This payment doesn't look all that "special", compared to the deals I see advertised on the more expensive models..

    That's strange, there's no 58.9% residual and the rate should be .0008.

    Usually $1000 down as a cap reduction gives back $30.
  • Yep, that's what I thought too. Is the $299/month lease on the 7 passenger still going on? I went to the Subaru website and it's not there anymore.
  • I've been seeing .0008 too posted here. As for the residual, that's what was given to me $18724.
  • kyfdx@Edmundskyfdx@Edmunds Posts: 25,970
    I still see it there... $299/mo. with 2893 due at signing.. Click on financing, then special offers.. then enter your zip code...

  • Question...with current SOA lease deal for $2849 down and $299 per month for Tribeca, what price is the dealer selling the vehicle for? I have a long standing relationship at my dealer that they will sell me a vehicle at invoice. Is it being sold for invoice?

  • Ask the dealer what the capitalized price is on the lease.

    They have to tell you
  • I will ask dealer when the time comes, but just for curiosity, when SOA has a special like the $2849 down and $299 per month what are dealers selling the vehicle for? Is SOA expecting them to sell at invoice or is SOA supporting with money and dealer is making normal profit margin?
  • raybearraybear Posts: 1,776
    I don't have the paperwork in front of me but I think SOA has the dealers discounting $1500 off the car and the customer paying $1999 up front, with fees that $2849 makes sense.

    There's a special on the Tribeca for President's Day, extra dealer cash so expect a better deal than you were already quoted.
  • Charlie
    thanks for the reply
    I do enjoy the tribe
    By the have you noticed (as I am in the NorthEast)
    and slippage of the wheels on icy road
    even though the stablization feature is active and I am only going 30 mph on straight road
    Just curious.
  • I am happy with my B9, but being a first time subie owner, I do not see what all the hoopla is about the AWD system. 15 years ago I had a Grand Cherokee that as I remember it was a better performer (on road)on snow and ice than my 06 B9.

    I can throw it into a sharp turn and floor it simultaneously and the wheels will start spinning on the snow and not stop until I back off the throttle. It appears that the engine controls never kick in to dial back the torque.

    Is that normal?

    If all your wheels are on ice at the same time then your SOL. The VDC, as I understand it moves traction and braking to the wheels " with grip"

    In the 90's I had a Cherokee and experienced black ice - It was raining lightly but the ground was still frozen from a very cold single digit night. The roads were completely covered with Ice - for miles!!

    From a speed of about 10 MPH it took me at least 1500 ft. to stop - 4WD, AWD NWD. everybody had to stop and wait about 30-45 min until the temp rose. Some people had to go up on a lawn to stop. Others used the curbs.

    30MPH on ice is dangerous for any SUV.
