  • OK, let me be a first one here...what is the residual value on 24 months lease for Aspen Limited 4 x 4 J Package (with 20" rims)???

    If somebody can recommend a dealer in New York City area...please do so...

    I checked out the Aspen and loved the thing, but the lease price he gave came out to be 495 a month with taxes up front for 27 months.

    Only option I added was the sound system...so I don't see how it can cost so much monthly.
  • That's crazy...you can get LR 3 for $500 a month with $5,000 down payment...we need to find out residual value and see if salesman was trying to rip you...
  • sasukesasuke Posts: 77
    yea...I called another place, a larger one, and they said the low 400s, which made me happy. So I'm gonna go there tomorrow morning and get the info.

    So many people [non-permissible content removed] about this car, I don't see why. Outside is nice, nothing special, but classy, and the inside has a very nice feel, with amazing room.

    I drove it with the Hemi, the non-Hemi sounds too weak for me.

    Wait, I made a mistake..I had a few options:
    Hemi
    Leather
    Heated Front Seats
    8 Alpine Speakers
  • Definitely go for HEMI, better gas mileage (since it shuts off 4 cylinders when cruising) and it's less than $1,000 option.

    I found a friend of a friend is dealer, he will give me numbers...but since I am traveling to CA this Wednesday, you'll have to wait 'till I come back.
  • sasukesasuke Posts: 77
    Aspen isn't gonna happen..went to another dealership and got quoted $571 a month...

    They have absolutely no lease support on this.
  • Don't give up bro...you and me are the only people here that like this car...at $35,000 we should be able to lease this puppy around $350...I am telling you!!! I think salesman are too cocky as this is a new car...wait 'till end of December, they'll pay arm and leg to get them off the lot...beleive me...

    I am selling my Matrix on e-bay, and planning on walking into the lot on Decembar 31st...you have to make sure they have a car that you like...YEAHHH!!!
  • So I talked to my friend that I wanna buy HEMI Aspen, he goes like hey man I can hook yuo up with Kia Sedona (minivan), I told him:

    Listen dude, I am married for 8 years, gave up parting, chasing women, have 3 kids, busy dad...changing diapers, feeding babies...if you put me in a minivan you are driving last nail in my coffin...ha ha ha...I AM NOT GETTING A MINIVAN...that's what I made clear to my wife years ago and she is not even asking anymore...

    Puhleeez...

    I donno...prices are retarded, maybe due to its limited availablity, but it just doesn't make sense. Chysler should want these on the road and people won't lease them if they're at these crazy prices.

    My friend's dad just bought one in Wisconsin for 44k..told him he got ripped off. But on the other hand, he's always owned SUVs and he said this is by far his favorite yet.
  • Here you go, nikolaya. Chrysler Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2007 Chrysler Aspen Limited 4WD with 15,000 miles per year are .00030 and 53%, respectively. When negotiating your deal on this truck, make sure to take the $1,000 lease cash that is currently available on it into account. It will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost.

    Has any figures in this SUV changed at all? I'm waiting for the lease price to get better.
  • Hi sasuke. DaimlerChrysler's lease program for the 2007 Chrysler Aspen changed a little from December, but it is still pretty close to what was available last month. This truck's lease program isn't bad. DCX is providing very low lease money factors on it. Its residual values aren't going to get any better. I suppose that DCX might increase its lease cash on it some from the $1,000 level that it is at right now, but I doubt that this truck's lease program is going to become much more attractive any time in the near future.

  • Just bought a 2007 Aspen limited 4WD, fairly well equiped for 31K. The dealership was Folsom lake chrysler. Good at making deals, but bad at everything else. There was a dealer trade involved and three times they told me the vehicle was on the way and when I was ready to buy, they always had a but that was never communicated to me until the time we were to make the sale final ( we want to see you trade in again, we want you to sign this first, ect.., )I was willing to do it all but they dont pick up the phone. Also they gave my bank the wrong amount, so I had to spend hours redoing the loan. On the final day I had signed the paperwork given them my trade in and then they informed me my car was not ready. I had to put a dealer tag on my old car and drive it home. When they finally dropped off the car 4 days after the start, I had to get a gas can out of the garage to move it, It was empty and my floor mats were gone. I never got a sorry in the whole disasterous sale, but they did allow me to fill up my tank on them.
  • Have the lease terms for the Aspen changed at all for March? We are considering leasing an Aspen and want to know what can we expect for residual, factor, etc Thanks!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hey brunoblake. I can give you an idea of what this truck's current lease program is like. Its lease program varies by trim level, term, and mileage allowance so for now I am going to have to make some assumptions. I will assume that you are interested in leasing a 2007 Chrysler Aspen Limited 4WD through Chrysler Financial right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year. The buy rate lease money factor and residual value for this combination is .00125 and 44%, respectively. When negotiating your lease on this truck, make sure to take the $1,000 lease cash that is currently available on it into account. It will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost for your lease.

    What are the current residuals and money factors on Aspen's for the month of May if I decided to lease for 36 or 39 mo.?

    Also do you know if you can negotiate the acquisition fee?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Greetings csluke. Here's the info that you're looking for. Chrysler Financial's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 2007 Chrysler Aspen Base AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00177 and 42%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 39 month lease are .00186 and 41%. I had to make an assumption about the trim level that you are interested in since you never mentioned what it was. Let me know if you want a different version of this truck. When negotiating your lease, make sure to take the $1,000 lease cash that is available on it into account. It will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost. Chrysler Financial charges a $700 acquisition fee on every vehicle that it leases. Individual dealers do not have the authority to waive this charge. You can either pay it at lease signing or toll it into your truck's capitalized cost to make it part of your monthly payment.

  • Brian,

    Congrats on your deal. I have an Aspen; it's a great and roomy car. I am in the market for another one, but want to get a great deal this time. Do you know what the MSRP was on your model? Also, did you have to pay anything above the 31K aside from taxes? The model I looked at today had an MSRP of $44.7K (Hemi plus all the options). I'd drive to Folsom Lake if I could pick it up at 31k! Thanks, David
  • I would like to know if you can lease a used Aspen, it is a 2007 with 12k on it
  • rob91rob91 Posts: 1
    07 aspen limited demo with 800miles
    msrp 42820
    invoice 39495
    sales price 38695 + TTL

    Sales price is good with 0% financing for 72months. Dealer said other discounts would be available only if I decline the 0% rate.

    Anyone know if this is this a good deal??
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi dquirini. If the Aspen that you are interested in is a demo vehicle or a service loaner there is a chance that it still qualifies for Chrysler's new vehicle lease program. It it has been titled and it is considered to be a used vehicle then it does not. While they can usually be leased, the lack of support on used vehicle leases often makes them as expensive or more expensive to lease than similar brand new models. Make sure to compare any lease quote that you get on the Aspen that has 12,000 miles on it to a quote on a similar brand new truck.

  • What kind of price should I expect to get on a well equiped Aspen Limited? My Dodge Ram lease is expiring on 10/1 and I need to buy something soon. If I can get a good price from the dealer & 0%, I'm sold.
  • At this point, you should be able to buy for no more than invoice with you keeping any incentives if there are any in addition to the 0% for 72 months. The 2008's are already in production and should be arriving at dealerships by now. I have tried to lease a new Aspen but the residual is so bad that they are not attractive to lease at all.
  • Looking at a 2007 Aspen 4x4 with Hemi and all the bells and whistles. List price is $43,500. With a $2000 rebate, the dealer wants to discount another $3500. Can anyone advise if this is a great deal or not? As a "left over" I may lose more in depreciation as soon as the 2008 models arrive.

    Also - can anyone advise what mileage you are getting? Sticker says 14 city and 18 highway.

    Thanks.
  • I just ordered a new 2008 Aspen, limited, 4wd, fully loaded, with 28J, popular equipment group 2, power sunroof, myGIG multimedia with navigation, and trailer tow group. My final price 41,049 and getting 3.9% financing for 60 months rather than 1,000 cash back. Steel Blue metallic. It had to be factory ordered. If the incentives get better before it comes in I can get the better incentives. The only way the cash back would be better than 3.9% would be about 3,000 and I doubt Crhysler will do that much on the Aspen, but i'm hoping. The dealer is Smith Haven Chrysler in Long Island, New York. Anyone have any comments on the deal, good or bad?
  • MSRP on above is: 43,860
  • I just bought an '08 Aspen, loaded, 44,810 MSRP. The deal I got was 38,500 with the $1,000 rebate, but I took the 3.9% at 39,500 instead. We love it, except for the mpg.
  • Anyone have an employee choice burning a hole in their pocket yet for 2007. Going in to lease a Chrysler on Monday and would love to use it!
  • What's a goodprice on an 08 aspen ltd loaded with hemi and all options except tow package...I wasquoted550 monthly with 4000 down for 36 months 12K miles.

    Thanks Car man
