  • Here you go, birdstrike1. Subaru's September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Legacy 2.5i Premium with 15,000 miles per year are .00190 and 56%, respectively. The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.

    You're right about the inventory situation. After posting several consecutive months of amazing sales results, Subaru has not had any problem selling out its leftover models. Technically this is a special lease because the above money factor is better than Chase's standard factor on Subarus. It's difficult to say whether Subaru will enhance its lease program on the '10 Forester. My gut tells me that they probably won't improve the current lease program much because they are already knocking the cover off of the ball sales-wise. Why add support if sales are going so well? Having said that, it's difficult to predict exactly what manufacturers will do with their future incentives.

  • Here's the information that you're looking for, Chris. Subaru's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Legacy 2.5 GT Limited with 12,000 miles per year are .00190 and 51%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00190 and 48%.

    If you were to lease with only 10,000 miles per year, this car's residual values would be 1% higher.

    Hi Car Man:

    Can you please post the November residuals and money factors for the 2010 Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited for 36 months at 12K and 10K miles per year. Thanks for your help.
  • I certainly do spitfire36o. Subaru's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Legacy 2.5i Premium with 15,000 miles per year are .00110 and 56%, respectively.

    I provided you with the 36-month program for this car because Subaru is no longer providing support on 24-month leases. As a result, the money factor for a two year lease would be triple what it is for a three year lease.

    Also, I provided you with the 15,000 mile per year residual value because that is the highest mileage allowance that Subaru publishes residual values for. If you need to drive more than this, you will have to purchase additional miles on a per-mile basis. It should be less expensive to do so at lease signing than it is to wait until lease-end and have to pay an excess mileage penalty.

    Carman,

    Do you have the lease numbers for Legacy Premium for December?

    Thanx in advance.
  • Hi Car-Man

    Do you have the residual and money factor numbers for a Legacy 20010 Ltd. 12,000 per year and 10,000 per year?

    Thanks. BTW, been following your posts. You are great!
  • hi
    I've got an 07 legacy wagon that's coming off lease on the 20th. I've been looking at a VW tdi golf wagon, and V50 volvo, but I don't know if I can afford the lease or buying. Things are not real great money wise due to the economy. And since there isn't a new legacy wagon, at least not in north america (the UK has a beautiful one, thank you Subaru! :mad: )
    anyway, my buy out is about 15,500. The car has almost 80thousand km on it, which is about 8 thou over my limit. It's had a bit of front end work done, due to a little fender bender, so it's not worth the 15 and a half. Do you think that I could make an offer for a lower amount to buy it out? Do they consider those things, or are they adamant that you pay in full. It'd be cheaper to try and make payments on this amount than on a new car, and I don't want a sedan, nor the forester, since it gets worse mileage than the car I have. I like the legacy I have, and feel that might be the best and cheapest way out, but the car isn't worth the residual. Any good ideas on how to approach them? Would I have to get financing from a bank to buy it out?
    thanks, I'm running out of time here, and the other cars, nice as they are, are too much money.
    I appreciate the advice.

    I can sympathize...

    ...but that may be a hard sell. You're telling them you want to pay less because you didn't take the best care of (or have the best luck with) your own car.

    So that's asking them to take a loss for you.

    They may budge a little just to make a deal, so good luck, but don't expect miracles.
