  • Can you please provide the residual rates for a Tundra for a 24 month lease on an '05 and/or '06 as well as the corresponding money factors? Any current lease incentives available? I didn't see a forum for the Tacoma (largest crew cab they make) model, I could use the same information for the Tacoma as well. I normally buy American, but this time I'm looking outside the borders. Thanks. Hassen
  • moving this reminder from SMart shopper lease questions

    Is the 2006 Toyota Tundra lease program out? (Sept 7th)
    Trying to find residuals and depreciation pct for MSRP $27645 4WD, V8, access cab. 24 month.

    thanks
  • Hi Hassen. I need some additional information from you in order to give you an idea of what this truck's current lease program is like. This information includes the exact model that you want, i.e. a 2005 Tundra Regular Cab 2WD, a 2005 Tundra Double Cab 4WD, as well as what state you are in. I need the same information on the Tacoma as well. I only started specific discussions for the most popular vehicles that consumers ask lease questions about. The Tacoma is not a popular vehicle to lease because Toyota has not been providing any sort of lease support on it.

  • Thanks for moving your post, 108flat. Yes Toyota's new September lease program for the 2006 Tundra is available. I need some additional information from you in order to give you an idea of what this truck's current lease program is like. This information includes the exact model that you want, i.e. a 2005 Tundra Regular Cab 2WD, a 2005 Tundra Double Cab 4WD, as well as what state you are in.

  • 2006 Tundra 4x4 Access Cab SR5 V8 5-Speed Auto base price $27,645
    Delivery, Processing Handling Fee: $565
    Option Combination #B $2,100
    gross cost $30310

    in Kentucky
    thank you for your time
  • You're welcome 108flat. I believe that Kentucky is in Toyota's Cincinnati region. According to the latest information that I have seen, if you were to lease a 2006 Toyota Tundra Access Cab SR5 V8 4WD through Toyota Financial Services in your area right now for 24 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00082 and 65%, respectively.

  • Back in Sept of 2001 I went out looking for a new Toyota truck :) and came across what I was hopping to be a nice buy, a Tundra 2wd. :)
    The sale-man was just telling me O'h leasing was just wonderful (the best thing in town) I'm coming to the end of my lease now and coming to find out that the salemen was NOT up front with me at-all :mad: :mad:

    This truck will have 30,000 buy the end of this mo. yes I do alot of driving as you can tell. Still has the same show room tires.. It's had 2 recall's 1 front end and this last one was dealing with the exhust system..

    I have done a lot of talking to the managers at Toyota of Concord CA all to know avail. Come Dec. 2005 my last invoice will have a $18,000.00 last payment Due notice :confuse:

    So the Salemen can do on wrong it seem's I am holding the bag. Is there anything that I can do?

    Are you sure you have a lease? If you have an $18K payment that is not optional, then it sounds like a balloon payment loan..

    And 30,000 miles? That doesn't sound like much over 4 years... Do you mean 300,000 miles?

    You might want someone independent from the dealer to look over your paperwork.

  • I am sorry to hear about your situation, mike101a. I suggest that you place a call to the bank that your lease or balloon note for your Tundra is through. Even balloon notes nowadays usually give consumers the option to just turn their vehicles in at the end of their contract rather than forcing them to purchase them. There is a good chance that you can walk away from your truck in December, just having to pay any excess mileage and wear and tear charges. The recalls that your truck has had should not be a problem. Vehicles have them all the time. It would be a good idea to get them taken care of, for your own safety more than anything, but you will not be fined if you don't. As far as the tires go, if you have not rotated them on a regular basis, there is a chance that you will get hit with an excess wear and tear charge if there is not much tread left on them. I agree with kyfdx that 30,000 miles is not very much. Is that a typo? If not, you probably will not have to pay an excess mileage charge on your truck.

  • Toyota has had a $269 / month lease offer out for two months now on a 2006 Tundra Double Cab SR5 V8. This is for 12K miles a year for 39 months.

    The cars that fall in line for this are targeted at $27,600. (extra accessories mean a greater payment ...) The buyout afterwards is around $20K.

    This sounds like a really good deal. Almost too good?
  • pam6pam6 Posts: 2
    The offer in my area is either: $199 month for a Tundra Regular Cab, 36 months with $698 due at lease signing, or $269 month for 36 months with $768 due at lease signing. This does sound like a great offer and we have never leased before. I would love to hear any feedback including pros and cons. This truck would be for my husband who usually drives under 9,000 miles per year.
  • Hey Car_Man,

    I was wondering what you think of this lease.I got a quote on a 06 Tundra double cab 4wd today that I think is a good deal.The sticker price is $33,100,and the truck is a double cab 4wd SR5 w/ all weather package,JBL stereo,alloy wheels,color keyed fenders,keyless entry,limited slip,fog lights,privacy glass,bedliner,exhaust tip finishers,and carpeted floor mats.

    The deal is $291 a month including 5% sales tax,and a buyout of $21,116.The money factor is .00025,but I am not sure of the selling price.the sales guy told me it was invoice,so I could figure that out.All I would need to come up with upfront is $459.15 which is first month,and DMV fees for plates,and such.This is a 36 month 12K miles per year lease.Does this sound good to you?I need to act before the end of the month if I want this deal.Thanks in advance.

    Chris
  • 06 SR5 Double Cab 4x4, MSRP - $33,500, selling price $29,900. Invoice showed $30,500. Options: AA, DJ, KG, LD, KE, JZ, JC, LF, CK, PG, FE and a bedliner. Lease payment $295 (incl 6% tax), zero down. 36 months, 12k a year. Residual $20,000.
  • Car_man,
    Any chance you can give me lease numbers on a Tundra Double-cab 4WD in Colorado. They are advertising a $249 pm lease on this truck with a couple of grand down for 36 months. I'm trying to figure out what I should be paying after I negotitate the cap cost a little. I'm also looking for similar numbers on the Tacoma truck too, again, double cab 4WD
    Thanks
    Paul
  • I just bought mine on 1/31/06.Same truck except mine doesn't have the JBL stereo and the exhaust tips. 3 year/36 month/16,000 miles per year,$1000 equity from trade,nothing down except for 1st payment.$349.45 per month.
  • Hi Chris. You never mentioned the selling price of the truck that you are interested in leasing. This is an important number for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing the price of the truck that you want to lease you don't know how good a price you are getting it for. The second reason is that one needs the selling price of a vehicle that they want to lease is that it is necessary to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion on the lease that you were quoted on the Tundra that you are interested in for you if you let me know what its selling price is. For now I can tell you that the money factor that you were quoted looks very attractive and it is in line with Toyota Financial Services' current base lease money factor for the '06 Tundra in many regions.

  • I sure can, Paul. If you were to lease a 2006 Toyota Tundra Double Cab 4WD in Toyota's Denver region right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00025 and 61%, respectively. The Tacoma's lease program is much worse right now because Toyota is not providing any sort of lease support on it. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2006 Tacoma Double Cab 4WD should be .00265 (yuck) and 67%.

  • the reason toyota can offer that aggressive of a lease on the tundra is beacuse of the low money factor, high residual value and since they are redesigning the truck in 2007 they are offering a 3 year lease using a 2 year residual... if you qualify for leasing this deal is unbeatable!!
  • coolfbcoolfb Posts: 1
    Using the options from the Toyota website for the truck that qualifies for the $269/$669 due at signing, I cannot duplicate that payment with a .00025 money factor and a $20,400 residual. Sticker with the options listed on the the site is $33,377. Can anyone offer some insight? Thanks in advance. By the way the dealers are playing dumb in my area with this lease deal.
  • miller14miller14 Posts: 9
    I cannot believe all the excellent deals everyone on this forum is getting or being offered. I cannot find a dealer here in Tampa Bay, Florida to even come close to $299 a month for a Toyota Tundra Double Cab 4x2. The trucks I am looking at have around a $32,000-$33,000 msrp. One price I was quoted was $450/month with $500 down for a 36 month 15k miles a year. Another thing, I am reading on this forum that the residual is around 62% for this truck, but the dealers near me are saying that the residual is 52%. I am so confused and baffled by all of this. Why can I not get the deals that others on this forum are getting? Does anyone have any ideas?
  • sebring95sebring95 Posts: 3,233
    A few questions/things to consider:

    Is it possible the residual on the 4x2 is substantially lower than the 4x4? Most of the deals I've seen were on 4x4's. Around here, a 4x2 is worth significantly less on resale even considering the upfront cost savings.

    Are you looking at limited models? I believe most folks getting the low lease rates are buying SR5's. My fairly well equipped 4x4 SR5 stickered at $34,000 and I paid around $29,500. A 4x2 SR5 should be a lot less unless you're looking at limited models or adding NAV/RES to an SR5.

    Are they quoting you residuals/pricing through Toyota Finance? That is the only way to get the low money factors and residual used for the promotion.

    Is the lease promotion even still going on??

    What price are they using as the selling price? If they're selling for MSRP, that's another reason the price could be high. For ever $1,000 they come off MSRP, you save over $28 in payment/month. You should be buying at close to invoice IMHO, whether leasing/cash/financing. Some dealers try to pretend MSRP is the only price they can use on a lease, but that's pure bull.

    Hello, I love this forum, I have been highly enlightened on the subject of Lease vs Buying a truck, but I still need some help. Today I went to my Toyota dealer to talk about my 05 Tundra doublecab 2x4, I paid $29K for it 10 months ago. My payments with conventional loan is $574. I wanted to trade it in and get another truck for less $ per month. I was offered a 36 mo lease with my trade in truck for $569 a month with a value of $29K and at the end of the lease the value would be $16K something. to me, the smart part of this is that in three years time I can trade again and have a positive value of $16K. I'm not clear on negative equity carried over as one of my friends was telling me and of course NO one I spoke to has anything positive to say about leasing. What are the negatives can anyone tell me? And can you give me an 06 Toyota Tundra;access cab; v8 4wd stepside quote for Charlotte, NC thank you for any input!

    If your payoff on the current truck is higher than what they're going to give you on a trade, then you have to pay that difference somehow. That difference is considered negative equity. You could pay it in cash or roll it into the new lease. Leasing really isn't for everyone, and my opinion is if you're only doing it for a low payment, don't do it. Unless you have cash to invest other places or can take a tax deduction for your lease payments, you'll likely pay more for the vehicle by leasing (low payment not withstanding...). Toyota does have some attractive lease deals (if they're still offering them) but they also have decent rebates if you're buying. Trading out at 10 months is really bad financially.

    And no you won't have positive value of $16k in 3 years, you'll have nothing. You'll either turn the vehicle in or buy it for $16k.

    If you keep your current truck, it will likely be worth more than your loan balance in less than 3 years. THAT is positive equity. You're not likely to EVER have positive equity on a lease.

    There's a reason a lot of folks are negative about leases: It's easy to get burned and most folks are not happy when it's all said and done. They have very little flexibility and for someone without any cash they are more difficult to get out of early.
  • Car_man....finalized the numbers and am picking up my '06 Black Limited, crew cab, 4X4...MSRP $38,4XX. With $1000 down i'm at $319 for 3 yrs and 12K miles per year. $336 with GAP. I'm in the North East... :)

    It now is 4/7/06, had read all the info here then, went to dealer last week they said leases were great on a crew 4x4 tundra TRD SR5, should be about 385 on a 15k/36month. Today they pull paper work a show a .00096 rate/ 59% residual and want 451/month with first month payment down. I mention the .00025 I was hoping for, they tell me that was last month and ended on the 4th. Was going to check other dealerships? I didn't mess with the the cap cost of 34k as I hope to get it down a bill or two but is the new rate gone up? I am willing to fly other places to buy my 3rd tundra as I would drive anything else but the dealer was pretty locked in.
  • sebring95sebring95 Posts: 3,233
    Either way, .00025 and .00096 isn't going to cost you the $66/month difference. The Cap cost will have the greatest effect on your payment and is the most negotiable figure when leasing. If they drop the price $2,000 that will pretty much get you right around the $385 figure.
  • Hi Car_Man, Its time to shop again!! This time, I'm helping a friend to deal on the outgoing 2006 Tundra. We are looking at the SR5 and Limited models. 4x4, doublecab. 36months/15K, I am in SoCal. What is the April lease program? Thanks for your help!!
