    I am looking to lease an Outback (4cl Premium), but based on what people are putting in the thread it seems kind of expensive. Are the following better alternatives? (I live in Houston)

    1. Dealer willing to sell Outback at $1000 below invoice.

    2. Honda is advertising Pilot for $350/month for base model for 36 months, 12K miles per year, nothing down nothing for inception (bigger and more room - which are not big factors, but no AWD and not the best mileage).

    3. Honda is advertising Odyssey for same as #2 price and terms.

    4. Toyota Highlander also base model for $400/month 36 months, 12K per year.

    To me a car is a car, just want something safe with reasonable mileage. Wife already has a minivan so #3 is not the best option, but can live with it if the deal is that good.

    Your input is appreciated.

    Get something different, to meet different needs.

    If the van is not AWD, go with the Outback or an AWD Pilot/Highlander.

    That might help narrow it down.

    Outback will probably have the lowest operating costs - the fuel savings alone....

    Thanks for the response ateixeira. AWD is obviously nice, but is it necessary if I don't live where it snows?

    I don't mind at all, radude. Subaru's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a base 2011 Outback 2.5i with 15,000 miles per year are .00120 and 52%, respectively.

    Here you go kenerinn. Subaru's May 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 .00130 and 51%, respectively.

    You can look up the dealer invoice price for the Outback that you want, exactly how you want it equipped over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

    We get lots of rain and snow, plus I end on driving on grass or mud once in a while, on camping trips and visits to orchards, stuff like that.

    As you know, all Subarus are AWD so it's included for the price you see, but you can't delete the option.

    I recently did an exploratory search for 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5 Limited for my wife. I received a lease price of $404 a month for 39 months/ 10K miles. The rate included remote starter and trailer hitch. I am assuming since he sensed that I was not going to do a deal that day, the lease rate was based very closely to MSRP price. I am getting closer to actually leasing the car and here is what I am looking for. A 2011 Outback Limited without Sunroof or Nav. 36/10K a month. I will negotiate remote starter and trailer hitch separately. What deal can I expect and how much off of MSRP can I expect the dealer to base the lease on.

    Hello, I was curious is the dealers have the ability to manipulate the residual value of a lease. I am looking at leasing a 2011 Outback Limited 2.5 and was told the MF was. .0080 with a 49% residual. This was on a 36 month 15k mile year lease. I would like to see if I could get a higher residual value to lower the monthly payment.

    Thanks!
  • Residual values are set by the lender and are not negotiable. You can accomplish the same thing, however, by negotiating a lower selling price.
  • Hi Carman,

    Can you provide me with the money factor and RV for a 2011 subaru outback limited 2.5 cvt?

    Thank you!

    Hi,
    I'm looking to lease 2011 Outback 2.5 Limited without Sunroof and Navigation.
    Dealer keeps telling me that my chances of finding a 2.5 Limited WITHOUT the sunroof are 1 in 500.
    Is this true?
    Also, what type of MF and RV can I expect? I'm in north suburb of Illinois.

    Dear car_man,

    What would be lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Outback 2.5i Premium with 12,000 miles per year?

    Are there any fees on the top of the lease?

    Thanks

  • jski2jski2 Posts: 1
    Hey Loader901,

    Where are you located? That sounds like a very good deal.

    Hello Car_man,

    I was quoted $27,153 for a 2011 Outback 2.5i Premium with the all weather package. The June numbers for the lease are - MF of .00140 12k 42mo. =$369.00/mo. Can you tell me what the Money Factor for July will be and does this sound like a good deal? (NY area)

    Thanks
  • Hi Car Man.
    Do you happen to know the MF and RV for the month of July?
    For both 12K miles per year (3 years) and 15k miles per year (3 years) possibly?
    Your help will be greatly appreciated.
  • avh106avh106 Posts: 1
    Hey car man - Can you please provide me with July's residual value and money factor is for a 36 month term on an Outback 2.5i? Also what the standard mileage is?

    Thanks!

    What are the lease terms for 12K/yr--residual value and money factor for 36 mos and 42 mos?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi gman56. Subaru's July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 42 month lease of a 2011 Outback 2.5i Premium with All Weather and 12,000 miles per year are .00115 and 46%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    It's difficult for me to give you my opinion on this car's price without knowing what its MSRP is. That will enable me to see how large a dealer discount you are being given.

    The dealer we leased our last Subaru from tells us that the inventory is so tight that they're selling the cars at MSRP but as a returning customer, they'll give us $500 off. No bargain!

    I've found a car 2 hours away, which has more options than what we need, but they're quoting a price less than our local dealer offered:

    Subaru Limited, 2.5i, 42 months/10K miles a year
    moon roof
    rear vision camera
    backup warning sensor
    remote starter
    auto dimming mirror with integrated rear vision camera
    and the PZEV required in NY

    $30.039 price
    $2500 down
    $432/month

    I'm waiting for them to tell me the money factor and residual value on the car.

    Does this seem like a good price?

    Or we could wait as Subaru has offered to extend our lease up to five months by which time inventory should be better and hopefully prices lower.

    Thanks for your help
