    I certainly can cliff31. In most areas (this program does often vary by region) Toyota Financial Services' August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Highlander SE 2WD with 12,000 miles per year are and 63%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Tier 1+" credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an '11 Highlander Limited FWD are .00100 and 61%.

    I'm not sure if TFS offers leases on Toyota division vehicles with only 10,000 miles per year, but if it does its residuals for that allowance would likely be 1% higher.

    Keep in mind though that these residual values are somewhat misleading because TFS places restrictions upon what options can be fully residualized. That makes its effective residuals a little lower than its published percentages...and of course it makes it difficult for individuals like you and I to calculate accurate payments on our own for specific Toyota vehicles.

  • Hi Car_Man,

    Can you please post the residuals and money factors for a 36 month, 15K/year lease of the 2012 Highlander SE and Limited?


  • Hi Car Man,

    I am clueless with leases so please forgive me. I am trying to figure what my payment would be on a 3yr., 15k mi. per yr. Price of car is $39k. Tier 1 credit and 4k down? Trying to keep payment around 450.00 mo.

    Cheers, :)
  • Can anyone assist with lease terms on a 2011 or 2012 Highlander Hybrid AWD in CT? Thinking 36mo term, looking for money factor/residual/etc. Should be Tier 1 credit. Thanks!
  • Hi, I'm an old car nut, used to buying cash and normally for old beat up cars. 1st kid on way and wife wants a new SUV. Decided to lease a 2012 Highlander SE 4cyl and have been looking for a lease for the first time. Here is the best quote I have gotten, please let me know what you think.

    Credit Score: 790, 500 down, 380/month, 36 months @ 12k miles a year. Any thoughts? When I go in what type of rude awakening should I expect? What other information should I demand before going in or be armed with when I do go in. Thanks for your help and patience.

  • Hi Car_Man,
    Looking for Nov. money factor and residual value for 2012 Highlander Limited AWD with 10k miles per year for 36 months. I'm close to making a deal but have no way of knowing if the lease terms are valid.
    Just out of curiosity, is this info available ANYWHERE else online?
  • Still trying to find out lease info on the 2012 Highlander Limited, 36 months/10k miles per year. My dealer (Long Island, NY) says there is no 10k option on the 2012 Highlander, but that doesn't seem right to me. He's quoting 62% residual and .00100 MF for 12k miles/year. Anyone had similar experiences? Doesn't seem like this board is very active, possibly not monitored? Oh how I wish this info wasn't such a secret, held by a small few! :confuse:

    Would like the same lease information - 2012 Highlander SE V6 - only with the January 2012 MF and residual.
  • Yes, I'm also looking for the residual and MF for the 2012 Highlander SE V6. I'm also considering the 2012 Highlander Limited V6. Would the residual and MF on the Limited model be the same as the SE?

  • Hi,
    Does anybody know the current lease incentives in the NYC area?

  • I just got off the phone with a dealership and he told me that the current (January) money factor on the SE V6 is 0.00065

    He wouldn't give me the residual over the phone, but I think it's either 61-62%.
  • Does anybody know the correct residual for January 2012? I went to one dealer and he showed me a residual that would equal about 59.5%. That seems low since 2 months ago it was 61%. I think I'm being jacked.

    Also, does anybody know if the residual is always a pre-determined percentage of the MSRP for each model or if adding dealer-installed options changes the percentage? I thought that the residual was pre-determined percentage off sticker no matter what?

    Thanks for the help
