  • I was looking at a Honda Pilot and found the leasing thread for that car very helpfull so I hope that this one takes off. For anyone currently looking at the Sequoia this is what I was recently offered on leasing, it is a incentive program running through 12/05/05 and is for CBR>730.
    Acquistion Fee $400.00
    Doc Fee $250.00
    Title $150.00
    License $39.50
    Money Factor .00064 which is 1.536%
    Residual 62% of MSRP for 36 month /15000 year
    One thing of on the residual, not all options are included in the residual but the packages are.

    Hope this helps someone, and gets more people to give a little feedback.

    Good Thread Car_man
  • Thanks for taking the time to stop by and share the details of the lease that you were offered with everyone, kraftj.

  • I am searching for an '06 Sequoia SR5, with a few options the MSRP is $41,560, with an inv of $37,090. When I do the math on $37,090 (which is what the dealer said he'd sell it to me for), I get $363/mo including 5% sales tax.
    But the dealer runs the numbers and comes up with $449/mo for 36 months.

    All I'd like to put down up front is $500 towards the fees you mentioned.

    Whose numbers are closer to the real thing? I'd be willing to lease an SR5 with a $37K invoice for $410/mo, am I being unrealistic?
  • Dave,

    With the same fees that I was charged, ($839.00) you will be raising you net cap since the lease usually requires a payment in advance, plus maybe a security deposit depending on your credit score which will eat up almost all of your $500. So lets say you are buying the truck for $37,090 on the low lease here is how it would have to break down to get to a payment of $390.00 without tax.

    LCPP $37090
    Fees $840
    Total $37,930

    Money Factor .00064
    Desired Payment $390

    Residual required to get to that payment $25,340

    Have the dealership tell you what the residual is and we can work off of that, also remember I have been told that the current cash rebate is in lieu of the low lease charge so make sure you are not taking this and the low money factor. Also the dealer may be including GAP insurance in his number.
  • I believe the residual the dealer showed me was $24,200, which is closer to a 58% residual than the 62% you mentioned in another post. How much of a charge does the GAP insurance come to each month? Thanks.
  • At a lease price of $37,930 and a residual of $24,200 with a money factor of .00064 your payment would be $420.95 plus tax or $442 with 5% tax.

    I was wondering what the current residuals and money factors are for a 36 month/12K mile lease in Colorado on an SR5 4WD. Is there some place we can go to find them ourselves? Thanks in advance!
  • Greetings dad23. I haven't seen Toyota's specific lease program for your area, but in most of the country Toyota Financial Services current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month, 12,000 mile per year lease of a 2006 Sequoia SR5 4WD should be .00100 and 63%, respectively.

  • I am in the market for a new Lease and i cannot seem to find a dealer who wants to deal with me on a Sequoia Lease. My company insists on qualifying at 36 months, 15,000 miles and zero down (except first month and tag). The latest incentive from Toyota provides for a 39 month lease. Can i get them to work the deal on 36 months? The best I have been able to get so far is a dealer who is willing to pay the last three months.... But obviously he is rolling the cost into the lease! I am also having difficulty getting disclosure on the deal! I can get the sales price and residual, but it is hard getting full disclosure... any suggestions? The last dealer I tried working with got me so mad with the salesman bouncing back an forth between the "manager" only to bring back different information than I was asking for, that I finally ended up demanding to see the manager direct or else I was walking out. Got so much song and dance from the salesman, I walked! He has called four times since and I refuse to answer the phone!
  • Does anyone have the numbers? I'm looking at 15,000 miles per year for 3 years. Also do you have to pay a security deposit or acquistion fee?

  • Hi soccerdad2. You definitely should be able to lease a Toyota Sequoia for 36 months. In fact, in most of its regions Toyota is pushing 36 month leases of this truck right now. Toyota's exact lease program for this truck varies depending upon which one of its twelve regions you are in. If you let me know what state you are in, I'd be happy to give you an idea of what its current lease program is like. For now, I can tell you that Toyota's buy rate special lease money factor for tier 1+ customers is currently .00100 in most of its regions. I can give you an idea of what the residual value is for the truck that you want if you provide me with a detailed description of it. Whatever you do, make sure to get the dealer that you are working with to provide you with the full MSRP and selling price of the truck that you want. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing these numbers you won't know how much of a discount you are being given and will not be able to estimate what your truck's lease payment should be.

  • Hello seekup2. Toyota's lease program for this truck varies depending upon which one of its twelve regions one is in. In most areas though, if you were to lease a 2006 Sequoia Limited 4WD through Toyota Financial Services right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00100 and 54%, respectively. I believe that TFS charges an acquisition fee of $400 on every vehicle that it leases. It charges a security deposit equivalent to your vehicle's monthly payment rounded up to the nearest $25 increment as well, but it often waives its deposit requirement on special leases.

    Hey Car_man,

    Can you tell me the MF and residuals for 36 months and 12,000 miles? Just curious, I called a local dealer and was told they don't do percentages any longer, each vehicle has it's own LEV, but it's obviously a percentage of the MSRP, do they just not want to give that info out? Thanks
  • I am being told by dealers(in Florida) that the residual on a 2WD SR5 is 63% of MSRP. However, so far I am being led to believe that the money rate is 0.00249 instead of the 0.001 you have indicated. This will be a lease picked up by my company therefore credit rating is exceptional! Are they just trying to work the deal to squeeze a little more out of it?
  • stillystilly Posts: 7
    I am receiving the same money factor (they like to say 2.49, however is .00249) and the dealers are advising they have a special residual "enhancement" that brings the residual from 58% to 63% (or more). I would like to know how to get the .001 money factor indicated in other posts.

    I am talking to a national leasing company about leasing a SR5 with most options. He is recommending a 48-51 month lease. I noticed everyone else is getting quotes for 36 months. What are pros and cons of this longer lease?

    I am a leasing virgin so don't want to be taken advantage of and I don't know all the right questions to ask. Any advise would be very helpful.

    Thanks for your assistance!

    No problem, soccerdad2. Ahhh, I see that you fall in Toyota's dreaded Southeast region. As you may or may not be aware, because of agreements that were struck many moons ago, the Southeast is one of the few areas that Toyota does not distribute vehicles directly to consumers. In your area it does so through a distributorship. This distributorship acts as a middle man, adding a little extra profit to deals like including options on vehicles that most consumers wouldn't want and even using its own bank, SE Toyota Finance, rather than Toyota Financial Services. If you were to lease a 2006 Toyota Sequoia SR5 2WD through SE Toyota Finance right now for 48 months, its buy rate lease money factor should be .00249. I am not sure what SE Toyota Finance's residual value for this truck is right now though. When negotiating your deal on this truck, make sure to take the $2,000 lease cash that is available on it in your area into account. It will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost.
