    Does this appear to be a good offer:

    MSRP 32,305

    Options: Mats 55
    Vista Roof 1495
    Pwr Liftgate 490
    Cargo Mgt 65
    Sirius 195
    Destination 705

    Total 35,310

    Total Out-of-Pocket $2000
    12,000 miles/yr

    I ran the numbers and it looks good as far as I could tell, but I would like to hear from others -I haven't leased/bought in many years. Opinions greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hello All,

    This is my first time posting here, so forgive me if I say things incorrectly.
    I was offered this by a dealer in Southfield (metro Detroit), Michigan:

    2008 Ford Edge SEL FWD
    Options: Sync; Audiophile System; Panoramic Roof; Sirius; Cloth interior...
    MSRP 31410.00
    Price 28601.65
    Adjusted price w/A Plan and Ford Loyalty - $25601.65
    36-month lease; 15,000/year
    Residual - .46
    Money Factor .0009375 (2.25% APR)
    $616 due at signing including 1st pymt
    Monthly Payment $ 388.32

    My question is, does this sound like a good deal? By my calculations using the Money factor and resid, I come up with a bottom line payment of $367.04 with tax.
    It seems alright to me, but - - - I just want to be sure, since you're the experts. Has anyone gotten any better pricing? Should I haggle for lower payments?

    Thanks in advance for your input!

    My wife and I have been looking into an Edge for quite some time and we're thinking about pulling the trigger this weekend.

    Specs are as follows:

    2008 SEL
    Vista Roof
    Blk Leather
    Cargo Management
    Power Liftgate
    Power fold down seats
    18" Chromes

    We're in San Diego, CA 92122.

    The local dealer has one in Vapor Silver. We didn't get into invoice, but...

    sticker was $31,770...

    He quoted us:

    $2750 in rebates

    $2,000 down, $299 per month, 36 months, 15k

    This was without running our credit and using the xplan that my wife gets through work. When I told him I didn't want to put anything down, he said it depended on my credit -- maybe a safety deposit?? He also said that for every $750 less I put down my monthly payment goes up $20.

    My wife and I both have decent credit, seven hundred and change. Do you think we'll qualify for the Red Carpet low lease rate? If so, what % is that? Residual?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Car man,
    We're looking for the lease info on a 2008 Edge SEL or Limited in the Pittsburgh, PA area. We can do 10,500 miles per year for 24, 36, or 39 months. MSRP of the Limited we like is $36,140 and we have not negotiated a price yet. We're still in the info gathering phase so if you can give us an idea of a monthly payment it would be appreciated too. $34,965 is the MSRP of the SEL we like if that helps any.

    That is a pretty good deal. Some thoughts though....

    1. Never put money down on a lease. If you total it driving it off the lot you are out that $2,000. Put that money in the bank and pay your slightly higher monthly payment with it.

    2. If it is a FWD Edge SEL and the current residual is 46% and MF is 2.25% then the dealer gave you an additional (approx.) $2500 off sticker plus rebates and your down payment. That is a pretty good deal but you could probably do better. The new incentives come out 6/30. I'd wait it out if possible. The deals will only get sweeter as the new model delivery date gets closer.

    I got $350 per month, nothing down on a SEL MSRP $33K. They need your business more than you need a car this week. Wait until after 6/30 or let them come down even more on sticker.

    Hi baggs32. Let's work up a lease payment on this vehicle for you and see what we come up with. You never mentioned its selling price, so for now I will assume that you will be able to get a $2,000 dealer discount plus the $1,750 lease cash that is available on it in your area. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2008 Ford Edge Limited AWD that has an MSRP of $34,965 and a selling price of $31,215 through Ford Credit right now for 24 months with 10,500 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $443. The payment for an otherwise identical 36 month lease would be around $428. The 39 month payment would be $420.

    Recent quote: Edge Limited AWD - Loaded - MSRP 38,520

    Lease deal I was recently quoted in NJ is $250 under X-plan price - selling price was $35,900 - before 3,000 rebates (inclduing FMCC rebate).
    36 month - 15K miles a year
    Residual - 47% or 18,104
    APR was 2.25 or .000933 money factor
    Sales tax number looked a little high at $1,501. Is sales tax in NJ (7%) calculated off the selling price less residual or off MSRP less residual?
    Monthly payment - $498 all in.
    Money down was $1,617 which only included first month payment, doc and motor vehicle fees and bank acquisition fee of $595.

    Let me know your thoughts on the deal? Is it possible to get bank fee removed? Should I wait till end of month to get better deal...Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    If you negotiated a selling price of $32,900 and could qualify for the 4.9% financing through Ford for 72 months your payment would be $528. Only $30 more and you would OWN IT.

    Don't lease this car for $500 per month. You could lease a BMW X3 for $475 easily. Take the traditional loan or walk away.

    10,500 miles a year.
    Thanks in advance for your very valuable service.

    My parents are interested in leasing a 2008 Ford Edge SEL - no options. The MSRP is 29,020 with destination, and the invoice is 25,076 (inc. the 2K cash back). Are there any other incentives in the NY/NJ region, and should they aim for a price of less then the 25,076?

    Please advise what the residual and money factor are for a 3 year, 36K mile lease. if you know July's rates that would be helpful too.

    They are getting quotes of around 410/month (all-in), but I believe this seems high compared to what I've read on this forum. Thanks again...

    A reporter from a national newspaper is looking to speak to consumers who just purchased a new Ford Edge within the past six months and whether it had anything to do with gas prices. If you’re interested in speaking to the reporter, please contact Chintan Talati at with your daytime contact information no later than June 23, 2008.

    I am fairly new to leasing and this may be basic to many but I need some help understanding. Northern NJ.

    MSRP 32425
    Resid 49% for 12k a year lease
    MF said it was 2%
    doc 149
    MV 416
    Bank 595

    He said there was 2k and 1k in incentives, I assumed that 3k would take the car down to 29,425 before I negotiate. I tried to start at invoice go from there. He said 31,000 is a great deal. Shouldn't the 3k in incentives start me under 30k? He said with 2k down he could for 400 a month. Shouldn't the agreed upon price be lower?

    Thanks in advance

    Here is what the dealer emailed me directly for the Edge 2008 SEL. "Sun and Sync" package w/ power lift/18" chrome wheels/cargo maintenence...I think the MSRP was 34,200 less 2 discounts in showed on sticker, so it then said $32,400. I think this is a little high....1st they said they would still honor Sun and Sync they still advertise this on he said it was 279/month, total d/o 2100...but then this is what he sent me.....the audi looking better by the minute.

    Ok, here is the breakdown:

    36 month lease
    12k miles per year
    $3645 combined rebate
    Gap Insurance Incl (Comes in Fords Red Carpet Lease program)
    $2953.87 customer cash including drive off
    $354.20 including tax
    $15,986.40 purchase option at end of lease

    36 month lease
    12k miles per year
    $3645 combined rebate
    Gap Insurance Incl
    $3948.27 customer cash including drive off
    $324.82 including tax
    $15,986.40 purchase option at end of lease

    24 Month Lease
    12k miles per year
    $3645 Combined rebate
    Gap Insurance Incl
    $2956.87 customer cash including drive off
    $330.78 Including tax
    $19316.90 Purchase option at end of lease

    24 Month Lease
    12k miles per year
    $3645 Combined rebate
    Gap Insurance Incl
    $3978.32 customer cash including drive off
    $287.78 Including tax
    $19316.90 Purchase option at end of lease

    Sorry for the delay Andrew. I've been quite busy today! Hopefully this is informative and if you have any questions, please let me know. As you can see, the two year program is very, very good. I wouldn't see any need to go to a three year term since it is not saving you any money. Can't beat those payments for that car though!

    could you please tell me the name of the dealership you got the car from...sounds like a good deal.
  • As with nearly any Ford vehicle, the best strategy is to go to a high volume dealer and assume you can AT LEAST get $500-$1000 under X-Plan price plus alll rebates.

    You can go to and type in the code DAVET to figure out X-Plan pricing. It will allow you to search your local dealer's lot and will tell you the exact X-Plan pricing. I would make an outlandishly low offer at first (around $5,000 under sticker and then add rebates) and gauge the salesman's reaction. Eventually you will get to middle ground.

    Remember, they need to sell you a car more than you need to buy a car.

    Hi cobrakai. In most regions, Ford Credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2008 Ford Edge SEL AWD with 10,500 miles per year are 0.75% and 60%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are 2.25% and 50%. The 39 month numbers are 2.5% and 48%. As you can see, Ford Credit publishes lease rates instead of money factors for the vehicles that it leases. You can convert its published lease rates into approximate money factor equivalents by dividing them by 2400.

    Here's the information that you're looking for, njbloke. In your area, Ford Credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Ford Edge SEL AWD with 12,000 miles per year are 2.0% and 49%, respectively. In addition to the $2,000 lease cash that you mentioned, I believe that Ford is also providing $1,000 bonus cash on deals through Ford Credit.
