  • I'd be happy to help you out richdm. Subaru's September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Outback 2.5i Limited without navigation with 15,000 miles per year are .00070 and 45%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease on a model with navigation are .00100 and 44%.

  • Hi Car_Man,

    Thanks for your response; it's a real help. I'm really surprised how low the residual is on the Outback in terms of leasing.
  • just picked up a 2011 subaru outback limited 2.5 wondering if this was a good deal on a lease?
    1200 out of pocket
    385 a month for 36 months
    12k a year mileage
  • @kman94,

    IMO, this is a great deal...I am looking at the same model and parameters and can't get within $480 a month even with negotiating the overall sale price down ~2K from MSRP.

    I'm in Pennsylvania...where did you get your deal?
  • I am in NJ. Freehold Dodge/ Subaru. I was running into the same problem as you. Nothing lower then 465 a month. This place was great! There is a shortage on the car due the tsunami in Japan. Locating the car was next to impossible, but these guys went above and beyond!
  • CarMan, Could you give me the current money factor and residual for a 2011 Outback 2.5 Premium wAWP/HK aud? I was quoted $28315 sticker, 26291 sale price for 36 month/10,000mi and money factor of .00115. Thanks
  • I don't get it. The resale value on the Subarus are high, yet the residual values for calculating leases are so low that the per month is crazy high. Other cars I'm considering are at 60% vs the outback's 46%. That means that a car with a similar MSRP runs around $100/mo cheaper than the Outback. Are they trying to push sales vs leases?

  • Here you go mackfam. Subaru's September buy rate lease money factor and resdual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Outback 2.5 Premium with AWP, HK, and 10,000 miles per year are .00040 and 47%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I don't know where the dealer came up with the .00115 factor, but it's way out of whack.

  • Hello all,
    I am likely to be looking for a new Outback over the winter and was wondering if there would be a difference in MF and Residual between a leftover '11(if any) and a newer '12. I realize I should be able to get the capitalized cost lower but unsure about the actual rates.
    Thanks,
    Chris
  • Yes, Chris, the lease programs for the 2011 and 2012 models will definitely be different. Subaru is scheduled to introduce a new lease program for both later this week. Please feel free to check back with me in a couple of days and I'll gladly fill you in on the details.

    Hi Car Man,

    Do you have the numbers on the 2012 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited for 36 months with either 12,000 miles or 15,000 miles a year? I would like to lease by the end of this month or next so any info on lease deals and incentives for this month would also be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I recently leased a 2012 Outback 2.5i Limited in Houston. I think I got a really good deal...

    It was raining and the 2nd to last day of the month (9/30) and they wanted the sale.
    MSRP was $31,467; the negotiated capitalized cost was $26,740.
    Tax & tags ($131); Acquisition ($895) probably too high; Doc, Lic & M ($334).
    Gross Capitalized Cost = $28,225.91
    Total out of pocket $800 (including 1st month payment) and I had the car delivered to my house (~ 20 miles from the dealership).
    39 month lease at 12k miles/yr = $369.99/month
    Money Factor = 0.0018
    Residual Value = 51%

    I had initially negotiated a deal for a 2.5i Premium (but the dealer had a toughttime locating the color I wanted); we ended up at:
    MSRP - $27,049
    Value ~ $24,049
    Out the door - $800 (including 1st month payment)
    36 month lease at 15k miles/yr
    $352/month
    MF = 0.0018; RV = 54%

    The first deal they offered was a capitalized cost of $24,049, w/ a monthly payment of $440 - $460/month. I'm not sure what MF or residual value they were using, but it was way high. After a few iterations for the guy to check with his manager we got to the above deal.

    Hi All,

    Yesterday I was quoted the following on a 2012 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited with the only extra being auto-dimming mirror with homelink:

    I told I wanted to put no money down

    Negotiated Price including mirror, taxes, tags, and dest.: 31581

    Taxes are 8.35%

    36 month lease at 15k miles/yr = $642.75/month
    Money Factor = 0.00315
    Residual Value = They wouldn't tell me

    Is that MF absurd or am I wrong?

    Has anyone gotten a residual value on this model because they wouldn't give me that number.

    Thanks,

    Stephen
  • kiltmankiltman Posts: 61
    Is that @$29k selling price before taxes, etc? If so, that is about a 38% residual which is horrible.
    You would have a payment of $477 if buying at 2.9% for 6 years.
    I'd say look at another dealership
  • samny1samny1 Posts: 41
    Selling price was $30,906 and MSRP is $32,690.
    I was amazed by the offer and I will be getting my car from another dealership.

  • Here you go jrseattle. Subaru's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Outback 3.6 Limited with 15,000 miles per year are .00180 and 55%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

  • Greetings quantifire. Subaru's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 Outback 2.5i Premium with 15,000 miles per year are .00330 and 65%, respectively.

    As you can see, the numbers for 2 year leases of this car are not very attractive. You would be much better off going with a 36-month lease....00140 and 55%.

    I believe that 15,000 miles per year 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 is less expensive to do so at lease signing than it is to wait until lease-end and have to pay an excess mileage penalty.

    The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 1% higher.

    Car_Man,
    When you get them, could you post the November numbers for residual and mf for the above vehicle for a 36 month, 12k mile lease?
    Thanks

    Thank you Car_man,

    I was wondering if you had the November numbers on the same car (2012 Outback 3.6R Limited) with the same length and miles (36 months and 15K). I was just quoted MF .00125 and RV 52%

    Thanks,

    Stephen
  • Also if you could include the info for a premium model I would consider that if the rates were better.
    Thanks in advance.
  • Hi Chris. Subaru's November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Outback 2.5i Limited with 12,000 miles per year are .00115 and 52%.
