    Great username SubieSVX. I haven't seen one of those in a long time. Here's the info that you're looking for.

    Subaru's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Impreza Sport Premium CVT with 15,000 miles per year are .00110 and 61%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    You definitely don't want to lease this car for 24-months, Subaru is not currently providing support on 2-year leases.

    The last time I checked, Subaru's low mileage adder for 12,000 mile per year leases was 1%.

    Chase charges a $595 acquisition fee on Subaru leases.

    Thanks Car Man. A great help.

    Yes agreed -- a long time since the SVX was around.

    Hi dealbreaker1. Subaru's April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Impreza 2.0i automatic with 15,000 miles per year are .00035 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The number for an otherwise identical 42-month lease .00035 and 54%.

    I believe that 15,000 miles per year is the highest mileage allowance that Chase, Subaru's captive finance company, leases with. If so and you need to drive more than that, you should purchase additional miles on a per-mile basis. It is usually less expensive to do so at lease signing than it is to wait until lease-end and have to pay an excess mileage penalty.

    Hi again Car_man,

    VIN arrived and ETA is May 21, so if you happen to have the May residual and money factor for a Sport Premium with CVT at 12k, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Sure imprezive. Subaru's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Impreza Sport Premium CVT with 12,000 miles per year are .00110 and 61%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

  • Hi Car Man,

    I'm looking to lease a Subaru Impreza 2.0i Automatic sedan for 36 months with 12,000 miles per year and was wondering if you could give me the MF and residual value for May. I got quoted for the following lease and wanted to know if its a good deal:

    2012 Subaru Impreza standard sedan -

    MSRP: $19,214
    Net Sale Price: $18,301
    Sales Tax: $720.71
    Acquisition fee: $595
    Doc fee: $250
    Registration fee:$18.50
    License fee: $44.75
    Title fee: $15
    Cap Reduction Tax: $19.38
    Gross Cap Cost: $20,243

    I was quoted for MF of 0.00085 and a residual value of 58% or $11,162.10, this comes out to $278.95 for my monthly payments. I'm just concerned since you quoted the April MF as .00035 for the same car with 15k miles per year. In this case, would I be able to negotiate the MF?

    Thanks!

    Hi. With these numbers, do you think a person is better off leasing or
    buying an Impreza? Thanks.
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi carcurious18. The .00035 money factor is still valid for a 36-month lease of a Impreza 4-dr 2.0i. If your credit is in good shape then the dealer is marking your car's factor up to add additional profit to your deal. I personally wouldn't let them do this. I'd lease at a good selling price with the buy rate or I'd get something else.

    Hi ezm1. Given how attractive the Impreza's lease program is right now I personally would lease. If you really don't want to lease you can always finance this car at 2.9% for 60 months, but again I think that the lease is the better deal right now if it works for your planned use.

    Hello Car Man,

    I wanted to see if you could help me understand what I can expect for a lease payment for the following:

    Model: 2012 Subaru Impreza Hatchback 2.0i Sport Premium w/ Popular Package #1
    MSRP: $22847
    Invoice: $21570
    Purchase Price: $21320

    Was told that the only fees the dealer has to include are doc fee ($250) and title fee ($35)
    Our county sales tax is 7.75% (which sounds like that would equate to $1674)
    Delivery would be made in August but purchase would be made this week (mid June)

    I am looking for a 36 month or 42 month lease with mileage of 15K/yr. You can assume the top tier credit for the purchase.

    Your help is greatly appreciated!

    Best,
    Tye

    Hi Tye. Let's crunch some numbers and see what we come up with.

    According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2012 Impreza Hatchback 2.0i Sport Premium that has an MSRP of $22,847 and a selling price of $21,320 through Chase right now for 36-months with 15,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $265.

    The payment for an otherwise identical 42-month lease would be around $253.

    Hi Car Man,
    Can you please give me the MF and residual rates for a 2012 WRX Premium lease for 36 months/10k miles (I would prefer 12k). Dealer is quoting a MF rate of .00225 and .57 residual. Dealer is using MSRP of $29423, $27500 price with my trade in for a $336.25 monthly payment with taxes. Any help would be appreciated.

    Car Man,

    Can you share the money factor and residual for the 2012 Impreza Sport Premium, 36 months and 15K miles per year that you used in your calculation?

    And is it possible that the dealer would be using something different to calculate lease payments? I was quoted at $283 / month, which was slightly higher than I expected but this was for 42 months.

    Hi Car_Man,

    Do you happen to have the June or July MF and Residual for 12k/36 months for a 2.0i Premium Hatchback, assuming top credit tier? I'm getting quoted sale prices around $21k with monthly lease payments of $324, which seems a bit high. Thanks in advance.
