    Lexus Finance determines the residual percentages for each model and term.. I'm not affiliated with leaseguide.com, so I can't comment on their numbers.

  • Just leased a 2014 IS250 AWD F-Sport (Ultra White w/ Black) this weekend from Alexandria, VA (27 month/ 10k miles)

    MSRP- $44,968
    Sale Price- $41,675
    Residual Value- 74% ($33,276)
    Security Deposits- 9 deposits ($3,825 total)
    Money Factor- 0.00058
    Down Payment- $1,567
    Monthly Payment- $407
  • Please advise the November money factor and residual for a 2014 IS 350 AWD (plain, NOT F-sport) for 12,000 miles per year, 36 months. Also please post the MF and residual for 27 month lease (same mileage) since Lexus seems to be favoring 27 months in their recent advertising. I'm am in the NY metro area.

    Thank you very much.
  • Hi!

    Please share lease rates for 2014 IS250 / 350 for 27 and 36 months.

    Thanks!

    I was geared up to lease a 2014 IS 350 RWD but nearly had a heart attack when I checked my own credit score beforehand. I was expecting something in the mid to high 700 range since it was low 700s 3 years ago when I got into my RX 350 lease. However the average of all 3 agencies is about 600. Let this be a lesson kids, don't be lazy and pay your bills on time. That being said, can someone share with me the current Lexus Financial Services credit tiers and corresponding MF? Also, will they consider the fact that I'm already a customer and give me a better MF?
  • $387 including all taxes and fees?
  • I'm 23 months into a 36 month lease on a CT200h w/NAV. I really don't like the car so want to go to my dealer near Seattle to explore jumping into a new 36 mo lease on an IS250 RWD w/Backup Pkg & Premium Pkg. I don't know what the current MF is in this area, but what can I expect in the way of monthly payment assuming zero down, other than 1st mo. & license?
  • Thanks,

    What is the MF and residual for a 2014 IS350 RWD 36 months 15K miles and 27 months, 15K miles. How long are they good for?

    I don't see a 7.5K/yr lease option for Lexus, but if they have one, the residual is likely to be 1% higher than the 10K/yr lease

    I just spoke with my dealer and he game me the below information for 2014 Lexus IS250 loaded:
    - MSRP = $44,300
    - MF = 0.00210
    - Miles - 10,000/yr
    - Residual value = $29, 189.82.
    Can you tell me what my monthly payment will be without including tax?
  • You are missing some info:
    Selling Price
    Term: 27 0r 36 months

    If you are paying MSRP (bad idea) and 27 monthly payments for an AWD it would be: $588/month pre tax or fees.

    For 36 months it would be $572/month pre tax or fees.

    The top tier MF is .00110 so you would be paying almost twice as much interest, which increases payments almost $80/per month.

    Hi, I'm talking to a dealer for 2014 IS 350 AWD with F sports package lease and he quoted me 399/month for 27 months with $3500 down including taxes, fees which is almost $1600 and first month payment. Is that a good deal? its for 15K miles/ year. i was hoping to pay not more than $2500 down but they are asking more.
    Please let me know. Thanks in advance!
  • Selling price is $43227
    Term is 36 months
    Miles is 10,000

    - Can i add miles without adding to the monthly payment?
    - Is the MF determined by my credit worthiness or a number that lexus comes
    up with?
  • I'm calculating $543/month plus fees and taxes.

    The MF is set by Lexus and only the top tier credit applicants can get the best rate of .00110. Dealers can also try to mark it up to increase their profit.

    If you add miles it will increase your monthly payment. Residual values are lower for more miles.
  • You will have to provide more details such as MSRP, selling price of the car, MF, residual percentage... Based on previous posts the MF and residual for this vehicle for 27 months and 15K miles is .00110 and 70%.

    I would recommend against putting anything significant down on a lease. If you are not in NY you can pay down using up to 9 multiple security deposits (MSDs). You get the amount you put down in MSDs back at the end of the lease.

    With that said $399/month is a good price if it works for you.
  • Thanks, i now have a better understanding of what i'll be leasing. One more question, Can you explain MSD's to me? As it applys to my lease and how it relates to my monthly payment

    Thanks for you reply. Here are the detail that i've from the dealer.
    MSRP: $48827 / Invoice: $46047
    Purchase Price: $44547
    And fees he is charging
    Doc here is 499
    DMV is 418.50
    Lexus Acquisition Fee is 700
    One month payment 399
    Down payment 2000
    so instead of 4000, he is saying give him 3500 total down

    I dont have the MF and residual percentage but yeah it maybe .00110 and 70%.
    I'm in NJ area, so i wont be able to do MSDs?
    Thanks.
  • Each MSD reduces MF by 0.00007. If you do 9 MSDs it will reduce your MF by .00063. MSDs are calculated from the monthly payment rounding up to the nearest $50 or $100. I'm not 100% sure on the rounding.

    For Example:
    -If monthly payment is $500, then each security deposit will be $500.

    -If payment is $551, then $600

    -If $549, then $550. 9 MSDs in this case would be $4950.

    Using max MSDs will reduce your monthly payment ~$40-$50/month.
  • That's a pretty good selling price. I believe NJ does do MSDs. The payment might be a little higher by $20-$30/month, but you may want to consider MSDs instead of putting money down that you will never get back...
  • mast1mast1 Posts: 3
    Ok thanks for explaining.. I'll ask my dealer about MSDs and see what he says and i'll let you know how it goes.
    Btw, fees of $1500, do they look reasonable to you for Lexus? He said it includes Lexus acquisition fee, DMV and doc fees

    Thanks again
  • You're welcome. I'm not familiar with NJ DMV fees, but the Lexus acq fee is about right. The doc fees are high but could be normal for your state. The fees in VA are in the $300-400 range.
