  • Hi renaizance. The easiest way for us to evaluate this deal would be to look at this car's selling price in relation to its MSRP or dealer invoice. These numbers would enable us to tell how large a dealer discount you are being given and in turn if there is any room left to negotiate. Let us know what they are and I'm sure that either myself or another knowledgable community member will gladly tell you what they think.

    i ended up getting the 3.6r ltd with navigation for $338 per month on 12k lease

    msrp - 32k
    invoice - 29,768
    negotiated price - 29600
    42 months
    .00205 money factor
    56% residual
    2250 trade in
    500 cash

    i live in nj if that changes anything

    thanks!
  • Car_Man...thanks for all the great info you provide!

    I have a request -- could you update (January) the MF and residual % (12k, 15k) for a 2011 Legacy 3.6R base, premium and limited?

    Much thanks!
  • Anybody? Bueller..?
  • You're very welcome, helixtimestwo.

    Subaru's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Legacy 3.6R with 15,000 miles per year are .00130 and 61%, respectively.

    The numbers for the Premium model are exactly the same.

    The numbers for the Limited model are .00135 and 59%.

    I believe that the residual value for a lease of this car with only 12,000 miles per year are 2% higher.

    Car man-
    Can you tell me what the MF and Res Value for 12,000 miles on a 2011 2.5 Limited?
    Thanks.
  • Hi rs6er. Subaru's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Legacy 2.5 Limited with 12,000 miles per year are .00115 and 60%, respectively.

    The dealer told me he would lease me the car based on a $24,300 price + $199 document fee for $341/mo w/ $790 due at signing and a residual value of $15,845. Does that make sense based on what you said?
  • I was wondering the February MF and residuals for both a 2.5i Premium with cold weather AND also for a GT. Have these numbers changed much month to month?
    Thanks in advance, this forum has been very informative.
  • Hi rs6er. I'd be happy to work up a payment on the exact car that you are interested in for you. I just need you to provide me with this car's MSRP in addition to the selling price that you already mentioned.

  • Hi drfoot. Subaru's February lease program is exactly the same as its January program was.

    Thanks for the offer Car_man, but I decided to take advantage of the 1.9% financing. Picked up my new ABP Legacy 2.5 Limited yesterday. Got a great price at Liberty Subaru in Emerson, NJ. No one else who had the car I wanted in stock would match it.
  • You're welcome, rs6er. Enjoy your new ride!

  • i leased a 2011 Legacy 3.6R limited i got 62% residual and .00195 money factor. my sister went to test drive the Legacy 2.5 Limited and the residual was 58% on that and 60% on the 3.6. i looked at the book the dealer had so i know he wasnt bullshitting

    $384 per month on my car
    $341 per month on the 2.5
  • All right, here are all the numbers that I have with no negotiating on yet on my part...

    MSRP = 22,238
    Invoice = 21,263
    Sale Price = 21,363
    Residual = 13,754

    Lease will be 209/mos. for 36 months.

    Out of pocket is $3,031.14, which breaks down as follows:
    $999 Down
    $895 Acquisition Fee
    $209 First Payment
    $97.50 Fees
    $830.64 Tax (NY)

    Is this a good deal for a 2011 2.5i w/ CVT?

    Hi car_man: can you provide the numbers for the Legacy 2.5i premium (manual) for April? I'm trying to get my dad the best deal possible -- they've given him a sale price 22349, MF .00145 and 60% residual for a monthly with PA tax of 288.95 (for the stick shift, all-weather package).

    Thanks!

    -- Ian

    I'd be happy to help you out Ian. That money factor looks way high. According to what I've seen, Subaru's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Legacy 2.5i Premium Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00070 and 60%, respectively.

    Hey car_man,

    Can you please provide April details for a Subaru 2011 Legacy 2.5i Limited CVT and history for Feb? From a different type of Tsunami victim, ordered in Feb and car didn't come in until last Friday!

    Thanks,
    Jim
  • jimvtjimvt Posts: 8
    Sorry, 12K miles/yr & 36 month.

    Thanks again,
    JimVT
  • Dealer quoted $431/mo, 36 mo, 15,000 mi/yr, $2500 down. It looks way high given Subaru's May leasing incentives. Appreciate your help.

    Hi Jim. I don't remember what the February numbers were like, though you may be able to find them by scrolling back, but I can provide you with this car's current numbers.

    Subaru's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Legacy 2.5i Limited CVT with 15,000 miles per year are .00080 and 55%, respectively.

    I just leased a 2011 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium on May 16th and I wanted to share my experience along with the lease calculation:

    Silver Steel Metallic/Black Cloth
    MSRP $21,295
    Option Package 2 $500
    All-Weather Package
    Heated Front Seats, Windshield Wiper De-Icer,
    Heated Side Mirrors
    Lineartronic CVT Transmission $1,000
    Auto-Dim Mirror/Compass/Homelink $271
    Partial Zero Emission (Pzev) $0
    Destination and Delivery $725
    Total Suggested Retail Price $23,791

    PRICING
    MSRP - $23,791
    Gross Cap Cost ***Agreed upon value of vehicle***- $21,640.86
    Adjusted Cap Cost ***(Selling Price)*** - $22,734.86 ($21,640.86 + Acquisition Fee $595 and Dealer Handling Fee $499)

    LEASE
    (36 months 12,000 miles/yr) *($0 down, first month payment due at signing $299)*
    May Money Factor - 0.00115
    Residual Lease End Value (12,000 miles/yr) - 60% or $23,791 x .60= $14,274.60
    Lease Calculation:
    $22,734.86 - $14,274.60 = $8,460.26/36 months = $235.01
    $22,734.86 + $14,274.60= $37,009.46 x 0.00115 = $42.56
    Payment = $277.57
    Tax (Denver, CO 7.72%) = $21.43
    Total Monthly Payment = $299 per month (35 months)

    I hope this information is helpful...good luck!

    I would love to pull off a lease similar to this. However, my motivation is to get out of negative equity on my vehicle. Our local Suburu dealer is also our Mercedes/Volvo Dealer. I currently drive a Mercedes C230 that I purchased CPO from the dealer. Hoping they will give me best price for my car and help roll it into the lease so I can start fresh. Based on the numbers I see, affodability should be cheaper than my current payment even with the negative rolled in. Is this realistic to hope for?
  • cubuff1cubuff1 Posts: 5
    I went to 2 Subaru dealers and both told me that there will be an upcoming shortage of new cars due to the Japanese earthquake and they are selling more pre-owned cars and giving better trade-in values. This may help you get a higher trade-in for your existing car. Always get the best sales price possible for the new car and then talk trade-in. Good Luck!

    Hi jimvt. I believe that Subaru's residual values for leases with 12,000 miles per year are 1% higher than its 15,000 mile per year residuals.

    Dear Car Man,

    Please also provide the rates and factors for the 2.5i Premium, and 3.6R. Thanks so much.
