    Hey Car Man, thanks a lot. Mind giving me figures on the 2010 and 2011 OB Limited, for both 36 and 42 months? I'd appreciate it. Also, any pitfalls to leasing 42 vs. 36 months, other than 6 months without a warranty?

    PS Has anyone leased a 2010, and gotten a break vs. a 2011? I'm trying to figure out which would be a better deal, and wondering what (if anything) they are taking off the prices on the 2010 to clear them out.

    36 month lease is better than a 42 month lease for the following reasons:

    1) more likely you won't have to replace tires / brakes
    2) likely covered by the warranty the entire time you have the car
    3) you don't have the pay registration for entire 4th year even though you'll only have it for half the year
    4) If you're not going to the keep the car, but might keep (buy out of lease) your next car, you'll start paying down the depreciation of your next car sooner (the car that you may eventually own).

    Carman,

    Please help me with the MF for July ( Chase bank ) for 12k and 10k miles - 36m

    The RV the dealer gave me is 58% - it seems kind oh high.

    Thank you!

    Hi thedork. Chase's current lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Outback 2.5i with 12,000 miles per year are .00195 and 58%, respectively. As you can see, the residual value that the dealer quoted you is correct.

    For a 36 month / 12k lease, was quoted a money factor of .00220 and a residual % of 55%. Are these consistent with Subaru's current terms?

    Thanks for any input!

    I got a quote for a 42-month lease of a Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium stating, simply:

    377/month (41 payments) + $1789 down payment.

    I am a returning customer in Ohio. Currently, I am still leasing a Subaru Legacy 2009 at a much better price.

    Although I have tried to find out, at this point I was not told the value of the car. However, it is supposed to be at the value that was "negotiated" for Costco customers.

    Please, could you advise?

    CarMan, Can you please post the latest residual and money factor for the 2011 Outback 3.6R Limited with 10K per year for 36 and 39 months? Thanks.
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Yep, zollie, those numbers are right on the money.

    Hi pyrex. The easiest way to evaluate this deal is to look at this vehicle's MSRP compared to its selling price. Let us know what these numbers are and I'm sure that either myself or another helpful community member will gladly tell you what they think.

    Here you go, chuck68516.

    Chase's August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Subaru Outback 3.5R Limited with 10,000 miles per year are .00190 and 58%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00195 and 56%.

  • Car Man, I've been reading all your advice for several years, I am a big fan and appreciative of any information you can provide.

    I'm in New Jersey and looking at the above vehicle, information I have is sticker $33009, invoice $30575, lease based on $30675. September money factor is .00205, residual 54%, 36 month/12k miles. $1126 down includes taxes, title and fees, AND 1st month lease payment. All for $512/month.

    Good deal or not? Have I been provided with accurate information from the dealer? Thx in advance.

    Seems a bit steep for a 4 cylinder anything, to be honest.

    Forester has higher residuals and lower prices if you like those.
  • I'm also in NJ, and looking to lease this car.

    If you divide that $1126 by 36 months, and add it to the price, your total monthly is: $543.

    That sounds very high, especially when considering I got two quotes (different dealers) on a $34,000 MSRP Honda CrossTour for zero money down, 12k/year, 36 months, at $399 & $410 per month.

    I currently drive a Subaru Tribeca and my lease is up next month. I was only at one Subaru dealer to talk about an Outback lease. The dealer only gave me ball park numbers, and at the time, I was looking at the 6 cyl limited outback, and the number was in the high $400's.

    On a 3.6R limited/moonroof-NO nav they threw a # at me of $570- no money down - I mean no money -just $50 and i pick up the car. Lease loyalty gives me no first payment (up to 500).

    Leases are high now, which is why I'm considering a purchase. The Outback very close in size to the Tribeca, better mileage, very comfortable.....I can live in it for 8-10 years.
  • Car Man,

    I need the current MF and residual for a 2010 Outback 2.5 Premium at 36 months, 15,000 miles per year. Thanks.
  • Thanks wmond. $100 over dealer invoice is an excellent selling price for this vehicle. Just make sure that the dealer uses its buy rate lease money factor of .00185 to calculate your monthly payment and you're in business.

  • Are you sure? That's way different than what my dealer is saying.
  • Deal was $600 under invoice. 36 months, 15,000 miles per year. $380 a month including 7% sales tax. Only first payment due at signing. Residual was 56% and MF was .00175.
  • I'm interested in leasing a 2011 Outback. I'm still going back and forth between the 2.5i Premium vs the Limited. Does anyone know the current residuals and Money Factors for each? Looking for a 36 month lease, $10k miles per year, automatic transmission. Thanks.
  • Hey eddie75. Here's the information that you're looking for.

  • What would a good price be for a 2011 Premium Outback 36 months 15,000 miles lease
  • the manufactures price is 25,720 the price of the lease car is 24,576 residual 14881
    and monthly payment 391 . Does this sound reasonable?
  • I want to lease a new Outback. I am thinking that I would need 15,000 miles per year for three years. What is the money factor and residual percentage for this car?
  • Hello paustinfox. Subaru's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Outback 2.5i Limited with 15,000 miles per year are .00185 and 55%, respectively.

  • Great information here. Complete novice to leasing and so LUCKY to have come across this. How is this lease:
    CO - Denver Metro area, 2011 Outback 2.5i Premium - CVT, All Weather Pkg, Pzev, Bumper/splashguard pkg. Invoice around 27k. 3k down, 36 mo @ 12k miles, buy option fixed at 15k - $305/mo?

    And, what are the current money factor and residuals?
    Thanks a lot.
  • Hey Car Man, can you give me the November money factor and residual for 2011 Outback 2.5i Limited with 15,00 miles per year.
    Thanks,
    Joe
  • I don't know how to calculate the money factors so just curious what i could expect to get my monthly payment down to on one of the two models mentioned? I'm in So Cal. Term is either 36, 39, or 42 mo lease with about $800 down. So far was quoted $384 on 2.5i with $880 down. Is that good? Just seems very high to me on a car that is only $24k. I don't think the dealer discounted it very much either. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  • Any update on Subaru November Lease numbers?
  • $384 is high with $880 down. I had a quote of $390 on a 36 month 10,000 mile lease of a 2011 Outback 3.6R that was $32K sticker with nothing down. You'll need to provide a sale price to figure a lease payment. My buddy got a 2011 Outback 2.5i Premium $27,690 and his payment including 7% tax is $380 and change on a 36 month 15,000 mile lease with zero down.
