  • Hi Michael. The easiest way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that you decide to go with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor.

    Chase's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Sport Limited with 12,000 miles per year are .00145 and 59%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I am not personally familiar with how sales tax is calculated on leases in your state, but you may be able to find out by visiting this site: Maryland Taxes

    hi car man

    any insight on the january deals? I am coming off a 2009 subaru forester limited 3yr/36k lease so i know if i go into another lease, I will not have to pay disposition and i'll get 1st month free. On a related note, it looks like the trade in value of my car is greater than the buyout price (by maybe $3k) so it would seem like I can get some equity by having dealership buy the car as opposed to me just turning it in. live in Massachusetts thoughts?

    also, looking at the impreza and legacy as my next car.

    - looking for MF and residual on 2012 impreza lease 2.0i 4 door. 3 yr 36k miles.
    - are the MF and residuals any different on a premium 4 door or limited 4 door model. just trying to understand additional costs for upgrading.
    - also, would it be possible to get the MF and residual for the legacy 2.5i base, premium and limited?
    it looks like there are more of the legacy around than impreza so maybe there are better deals to be had

    thanks

  • Hi tsxowwner. If you can get the dealership to give you anything for your leased vehicle, go for it. More likely than not they won't, but you have absolutely nothing to lose by trying.

    Subaru's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Impreza 2.0i 4-Door with 12,000 miles per year are .00050 and 60%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Just a tip, January is typically not a great month to get a new vehicle. If I had to get a new vehicle in January I probably would go with a 39-month lease. Doing so would push the end of the next lease out a little further from January the next time around. Chase's 39-month numbers for this car are .00050 and 58%.

    The numbers are different for the other trim levels:

    Premium 4-Door - .00070 / 59% and .00075 / 57%.

    Limited 4-Door - .00130 / 58% and .00130 / 56%

    Even the addition of certain packages impacts the lease program.

    Subaru's numbers for the Legacy are as follows:

    2012 Legacy 2.5i Base - .00045 / 58% and .00050 / 54%

    2012 Legacy 2.5i Premium - .00040 / 56% and .00040 / 54%

    2012 Legacy 2.5i Limited - .00040 / 53% and .00050 / 51%

  • Greetings Car_man,

    What are the lease details for a 2012 Subaru Impreza Sport Limited for 36 months and 15,000 miles/year?

    Money Factor:
    Residual:
    Any incentives:

    Thanks for your help. I am comparing this against your feedback on the Elantra from last week. It looks like the Subaru leases very well, as well.
  • Greetings kopchikc. Subaru's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a base 2012 Impreza Sport Limited with 15,000 miles per year are .00135 and 60%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Subaru really isn't providing much in the way of cash incentives on leases of this car right now.

  • Hello Car_man,

    What are the lease details for a 2012 Subaru Impreza Sport Limited for 36 months and 12,000 miles/year for the month of February?

    Money Factor:
    Residual:

    I am currently getting the following numbers for this car in the Boston area from Zag.com:
    MSRP = $25, 877
    Invoice = $ 24, 441
    Zag target price = $24, 466

    Apparently, the dealer is telling me that the moonroof and Navigation are part of this car as well as all weather package in New England area. I also added Remote Starter and 110V option.

    So, once I get the residual and money factor number for this month, I can use cars.com calculator to figure out a fair lease pricing. btw, as I understand it, residual value is calculated from msrp, not purchase price, correct? Also, plan to target the invoice as the target purchase price.

    Thanks a ton!
  • Hello artistocrat. Chase's February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Impreza Sedan Limited with navigation and 12,000 miles per year are .00115 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    you are correct, vehicles' residual values are based upon a percentage of their full MSRPs, including the destination charge and any factory-installed options.

  • Hi Car_man,

    I'm in negotiation for a 2012 Subaru Impreza sedan (Premium model): MSRP 22,000. What are Chase's current money factor and residual values @ 15,000 miles for 36 months?

    Also, is the money factor negotiable?

    Thanks!

  • Hello Ploppous. Subaru's February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Impreza Premium Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00070 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    This is the lowest possible money factor for this particular vehicle. So it is not negotiable in that dealers cannot go lower than this, but it doesn't hurt to make sure that the dealer is using this factor to calculate your vehicle's payment because dealers are sometimes allow to mark vehicles' money factors up to add additional back-end profit to deals.

    And this just popped up at a local dealer so figured I'd check it out too -

    2012 Impreza WRX Sedan Limited, 15K 35 month.

    Gesh... three years and I still put an extra "z" :confuse:

    Thanks!
