38,515Once you have this car's MSRP and selling price, you can use them along with its lease program to estimate what your monthly payment should be. Subaru's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 Impreza 2.5i Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are .00130 and 59%, respectively. If you provide me with the MSRP and selling price, I can use these numbers to estimate your payment for you.

672I'm trying to lease 2008 WRX 5dr with automatic. It comes with premium package. The dealer is saying that he is giving it to me for invoice. The terms are:

$0 at sign in.

36 month

10,000 miles

$485 a month including tax

I'm in Los Angeles 8.25 tax

Does this sound right to you. Seems high to me, but I'm not giving any down payment so maybe as good of deal as I can get don't know. Wanted to lease this weekend, but now don't know.

1Invoice price $18,273

$0 down at sign in

12,000 miles

I'm in Amherst NY... 8.75 tax

36/42/48 month lease (whatever gives me lowest price)

What would be my approximate monthly payment?

5regarding lease buy rate money factors, are they standard across the board as long as a buyer qualifies for a lease OR are the money factors dependent on someone's credit score?

3Can you post the October Subaru lease rates when you get them? I'm looking at a 2008 Impreza 2.5i 5-door Premium with the automatic. This would be for 36 months and 10,000 miles a year. Thanks.

6Can you post October MF and residual values for

2008 Impreza 2.5i 5-door for following:

24 months / 15K miles

36 months / 12K miles

36 months/ 15K miles

Thanks for your help.

38,515Let me know what these numbers are and I'll tell you what I think.

1These are the numbers that a dealer gave me for the 36-mo lease 12k/yr on 2008 Impreza Wagon Premum: money factor 0.0019 and 60% residual. When I questioned the money factor number he replied that the 0.00160 number (as per your post) is for the non-premium model only.

Is his information correct, or yours??

Thanks

31MSRP: $17,640.00

Discount: $ 710.54

Discounted Price: $16,929.46 (inc. D&H of $399.95)

Acquisition Fee: $ 595.00

Capitalized Cost: $17,524.46

Downpayment: $0

Sec. Dep. $0

Miles: 10K/Yr

term: 36 Mos.

Money Factor: 0.00190

Residual%: 63%

Payment: $232.50

(B4 sales tax)

All in all this seemed like an ok deal considering my only out of pocket was the first month's payment of $232.50. The high residual of 63% and the reasonable MF of 0.00190 made for a low payment.

I wanted the Premium Package, but that increased the cap. cost $1500 and decreased the residual to 61%. That would have increased the payment $53.65/Mo. to $286.15, and I didn't judge it to be worth the extra.

Every dealer I contacted quoted MF of 0.00190 on 36 mo. deals; if there's a 0.00160 rate out there as quoted in this forum I couldn't find the car and/or terms on which it was available.

By the way, the sedan had higher residuals than the hatchback. On a 36 mo. 10k deal the residuals were 59% for the base model and 58% for the premium package.

9Can you tell me what the December Lease numbers are on the :

Impreza 2.5i 5dr Wagon Premium and the impreza 2.5i 5 Dr wagon with nav ?

I spoke to a dealer today who told me the Residual was 57% which seems about right.

Thanks in advance

2it was on the base model, 5 spd, only option was the spoiler.

6Here's the lease offer from a dealer i got today for a 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX 5-Dr Auto with Premium and VDC.

MSRP: $28,797

Purchase Price: $26,591

Edmunds Invoice Price: $26,317

Option 1) 36 mos, 15k/yr: $678.39 Total Drive Off, $433.64 payment including tax. $14,974.44 Residual (52%???), and 0.00150 lease factor.

Option 2) 48 mos, 12k/yr: $651.32 Total Drive Off, $406.57 payment including tax. $13,246.62 Residual (46%???), and 0.00215 lease factor.

I have a couple of questions: Can i do better on the purchase price? I have Tier 1 credit, is the residual and MF the best i can get or is the dealer marking up these numbers? Also, the lease calculator i have shows the payment should be $416.80 for 36 mos and $393.66 for 48 mos; why is the dealer payment higher? Could this be due to additional hidden dealer fees i'm not aware of?

I think i have a good offer but i think that there's definitely room for negotiation. Lastly, does VW offer any service/ maintenance plan i can try to get the dealer to throw in with the car?

Thanks so much for words of wisdom.

38,515I just calculated a couple of lease payments using the data that you provided in your post and I came up with $385.03 for 36 months and $363.66 for 48 months. One reason why the payments that the dealer quoted you are higher than this is they include sales tax. If this doesn't account for the entire difference, I'm not sure what would. Perhaps they are adding some fees to your car's capitalized cost.

Subaru may sell some sort of pre-paid maintenance plan, but if it does I do not have any information on it.

6I was also concern about the residual since it appears a little low for 36 mos. Thanks again for your expert advice.
