    Great, thanks.

    Car_man, disregard for now pls. I'll check out these posts first.

  • So if you read my post above (#161) you will see the prices I was quoted. I made a trip to the dealer and the price "went up." The dealer said the absolute lowest who could go (which included giving up his holdback) was $2k down and $329/month for a base 7 passenger:
    MSRP: ~33,350
    Invoice: ~31,050
    Minus Holdback: ~30,000
    Minus $2500 Rebate: ~27,500 (selling price)


    Unfortunately, this dealer does charge a $421 documentation fee (signs are posted on the wall declaring this fee at all of their stores).

    He gave the best possible money factor which is at 36 months (rates nearly double when you go to 48 months). Then he said to have 15k/year would bring the monthly payment to $349. No additional fees on the down payment or monthly payments. This represents total "out the door" pricing. I was a little disappointed. I have been cross-shopping for a Sienna or Odyssey but haven't had much success. So I put some money down to hold the Tribeca and I am trying a last ditch effort on the Odyssey at another local dealer that I have heard good things about. The saga continues...can't wait to land my good deal and actually bring a vehicle home (believe me, my wife is absolutely sick of this whole thing).

    Mike, looks like the stone's bled all it can...if you wait too long, the deals tend to reverse.

    Car_man,

    Hi. I'm back and I do not need all the info I asked for earlier. I know which model I want to get and I'm going to get it before the current incentives expire on 7/5.

    What is the money factor, residual, and acquisition fee for a base B9 Tribeca 5 passenger assuming 3 years and 12,000 miles per year?

    The cash incentive is supposed to be $2000 for this model. Can you confirm that as well?

    And, lastly, is it correct that there is no security deposit required?

    Thanks for your help. I decided to turn my lease in 2 weeks early so I'm only out half a payment.

    Ray, thanks for the advice. You helped me make up my mind.

    Peter
  • Thanks for the info Car_man!! I have read the articles,definately great information. This is the term/milage I want, but are the MF,residual, and incentive the same on the LTD? Thanks again for your help!

    Hi captchancey. If you were to lease a 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca 7-Passenger Limited with DVD and navigation through its captive finance company right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00140 and 52%, respectively. In most areas, Subaru is providing $2,500 lease cash on this truck. Make sure to take this cash into account when negotiating your vehicle's capitalized cost.

    Hi subienewbie2. Vehicles' residual values are always calculated using a percentage of their full MSRPs including the destination charge and the MSRPs of any options that can be residualized. You are right that the reason for this is that vehicles' MSRPs are a standard number, while selling prices vary from deal to deal.

    Hello Mike. I would be happy to calculate what the lease payment should be on this vehicle for you. However in order for me to do so I need you to provide me with its full MSRP.

    Greetings force99. The truck that you described has a spread of only around $2,200 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice price. You were quoted a discount of nearly $4,900, including the deduction of the $2,000 cash incentive that is available on this model right now. This is a very attractive price. According to my calculations, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment for the truck that you described should be around $384. This is not including the waiver of your first payment and security deposit that you were quoted and with the deal that I calculated you would have to pay Subaru's $595 acquisition fee at lease signing.

    Hey Mike. If you provide me with the MSRP and selling price of this Tribeca, I would be more than happy to give you my opinion of this deal.

    Doubled1tx, the $2,500 lease cash incentive on '06 Tribeca 7-Passenger models is probably available in your area. The incentive is only $2,000 on 5-Passenger models though.

    Hi Peter. The lease cash allowances that you were told are right on the money. Whether the model that you want has navigation or is a base or limited models will have no impact upon its cash incentives. I believe that Subaru's June lease program is fairly comparable to its May program, but I don't remember the exact details of last month's program. Don't worry about the special lease program just disappearing. Subaru desperately needs lease support to move the Tribeca. If I was in your situation, I personally would wait to July to get a new vehicle rather than just throwing away my last payment on my current lease.

    P.S. I hope that your friend enjoys their Pilot. It's a nice truck.

    Hi again Peter. Here's the info that you're interested in. If you were to lease a base (not the Limited model) 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca 5-Passenger 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 .00120 and 55%, respectively. The lease cash that is available on 5-Passenger Tribeca models right now is indeed $2,000. It's possible that Subaru is waiving its security deposit requirement for this truck this month, but I have not heard that it definitely the case.

    You're very welcome, tribeca4me. The lease program for the Limited version of this truck is a little different, so I'll give you the numbers for it as well. According to the latest information that I have seen, 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 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00120 and 53%, respectively. Don't forget the $2,000 lease cash when negotiating this truck's capitalized cost.

    Hi pope76. It is difficult to say whether it would be cheaper for you to trade in your Accord or just to pay its remaining monthly payments. Either way, you are probably going to end up losing a decent chunk of change if you want to get out of your lease six months early. If I was in your situation, I personally would wait another couple of months to lease a new Tribeca.

    One dealer told me the 5 pass is $2000 rebate regardless of lesae or buy, the guy with the better price is saying, no only $1200 lease cash and $2000 rebate if you guy and the other dealer is just wrong. What has anyone else been told? Damn car dealers, lol
