    hmm.. not sure what your tax is, but according to http://www.leaseguide.com/calc.htm - your monthly payment before tax should be $475.48.

    I was quoted $495 including tax for Touring FWD w/almost the same MSRP. (but I was willing to make a total drive-off $1,500)

    Just wanted to post an update. Spoke with another dealer who was much more up-front about pricing for the CX-9. It turns out that there is currently $2750 in rebates available if you are turning in a CX-9 lease:

    $500 Mazda loyalty
    $750 lease rebate
    $1500 Mazda CX-9 lease retention incentive

    I've been offered the vehicle I want for about $600 under invoice, which will put my payment in the mid-$400's. Now just need to decide between black, blue or gray!

    For anyone that is interested, just went out to a bunch of NJ dealers looking for a 36-42 month lease, 10,000 miles annually on a CX-9 GT AWD. Residuals and money factors I was quoted are as follows:

    36 month
    51% Residual
    .00124 MF

    39 Month
    49% Residual
    .00135 MF

    42 Month
    49% Residual
    .00155 MF

    From some dealers, I also received quotes for a 39 month lease through Hann Financial. They are doing a 56% residual and a .0021 MF. They are also offering a $1000 lease incentive instead of the $750 offered for the leases through Mazda Financial. I do believe, however, that the Hann numbers are expiring very soon. There are also some additional stipulations associated with leasing through Hann, the big ones being a $250 return fee at the end of the lease and no damage allowance waiver (so you'll want to keep your car in good shape if you go through them). I opted to go through Hann, we'll see how that works out for me...

    Hope this helps someone.

    Silly question but....
    I live in Illinois, where tax is paid up fron for leases. When I use the calculator in the link above, I include the tax in the line "Costs Added to lease", along with the bank fee. Then I input zero on the tax percentage line.

    Should this give me an accurate monthly payment?

    Thanks

    Nom,

    Not a silly question at all. The answer is, yes, it will produce an accurate monthly payment as Illinois computes the sales tax based on the selling price and not on the sum of the payments like Ohio does. In other words, as long as the sales tax is not a function of the payment, the lease calculator will produce accurate results. Illinois does not tax the payment receipts. To wit...

    http://tax.illinois.gov/LegalInformation/Letter/rulings/st/2008/sg080021.pdf

    and so the lease calculator will give you an accurate result. A word of caution...

    If you plan on capitalizing the first payment, online lease calculators will produce inaccurate results. Even dealer software incorrectly computes payments in such instances. It's been a real problem here in Ohio and I've called it to the attention of the State Attorney General. Essentially, tax levied on tax in those instances where the first payment and sales tax are capitalized in the lease. This is illegal in Ohio and the AG is investigating. I don't fault the dealers. The blame rests with the software developers. They should know better!

    Nom, Mazda's current lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 CX-9 Touring FWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00124 and 53%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a CX-9 Grand Touring AWD are .00124 and 51%.

    Hey dhearsch. I personally would go with a 36 or 39 month lease of the CX-9 right now. Its base lease rates for those terms are .00124 and .00135, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Thanks ccracin. Keep in mind that Mazda's current lease program is only scheduled to run through June 1st, so it may very well be different when you are in the market later that month.

    Mazda's May lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 CX-9 Grand Touring AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00124 and 49%, respectively.

    The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year is 2% higher.

    I believe that Mazda is providing a $750 cash incentive on leases of this model this month.

    Carman,

    Any feedback would be appreciated. I am getting the following lease deal for a CX-9 Touring FWD. 36 month, 12k miles. Does it sound like a good deal? Looks like the residual is lower than other posts.

    Msrp:34,177
    Cap cost:30,900
    Residual vale:17,088(50%)
    Money factor: 00124
    Adjusted cap cost: 29,370
    rebate: 2125
    Payment 398 + 6 % sales tax 422.69
    Inceptions: 873

    Hey 96gator,
    I just got the same car last week. It's a 42 month, 42,000 mile lease. I traded in a car (got 2000 bucks for it) and had a total of 1200 due-in (first month + tax, tags, title,etc...). I chose a package for warranty + car maintenance (oil change, tire rotations, fluid level). My total monthly payment is about 390/month.
    Hope that helps.

    P.S. CX-9 drives great
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    I'd be happy to take a look at this deal, 96gator. The money factor that you were quoted looks perfect. It's right in line with Mazda's current factor for this vehicle.

    Let's take a look at the other important factor, the selling price. The CX-9 that you're interested in probably has a spread of around $2,700 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. In the majority of the country there's a $750 cash incentive on leases of this model. Add that cash to the $2,700 and there's a total of around $3,450 to play with during your negotiations. You were quoted a dealer discount of $3,277. That looks like a very attractive price to me.

    If you like the CX-9, I personally don't see any reason not to pull the trigger on this deal.

    My Mazda CX-9 Lease from Mazda of Wesly Chapel, Florida has come to an end. I called the dealer to find out what fees I will be charged since I want to purchase the car as I ended up putting a lot less miles on it than expected. They told me that I would have to pay the residual value, tax and tag which sounded reasonable. Then they hit me with a $595 Inspection fee and $595 dealership fee. Now I feel I am being ripped off. Of course I am sure that with the inspection fee they will require that I replace the tires and charge me their rip-off price for that as well. Is this normal when trying to purchase a car at the end of the lease?

    johnrp001,

    I suggest you contact the fund provider about purchasing your CX-9 directly from them negating the need to pay a $595 dealer fee. Does your state require an inspection? If not, you do not need to pay a $595 inspection fee which sounds a bit high. It seems to me that if your state does require an inspection, the fee would be regulated by the state. If an inspection isn't required, you won't have to replace tires unless you choose to do so. You're buying the vehicle; so why should anyone care whether or not you replace the tires unless a state mandated vehicle inspection requires you to do so.

    You should only have to pay the residual value plus tax and DMV fees. I'm assuming that there is no purchase option fee. However, if there is such a fee, ask that it be waived.

    Hope this helps.

    CarMan,
    I am about to purchase a CX-9 and I was hoping you could provide me with the money factor and residual for the following. Also, do your numbers only apply to Tier 1 credit and what score is considered 'Tier 1'. Thanks!

    2010 CX-9 GT AWD
    36 months/ 15K miles a year
  • aviboy97aviboy97 Posts: 3,159
    what score is considered 'Tier 1'

    To qualify for the Mazda lease special, you need a 660 FICO Transunion per Chase Auto Finance's guidelines. This is the case for the North East Region. I doubt it will differ from where you live.
  • johnrp001johnrp001 Posts: 2
    I called Mazda Finance, they told me they are not in the business of selling me a car and would have to go back to the deal to settle the lease. They did say that I could try another dealer and see what their fees would be to purchase the leased car. I'll post back with the results. - Thanks - John

    Dear CarMan or anyone with knowledge,

    We are coming off a 36 month lease on the CX-9 Touring. We were very pleased with our experience and are considering another lease of either Touring or Grand Touring. Currently, we are in a Touring, 10,500 mi/yr (under by a smidgen), w/ tax tag, title and 1st month our payments are $464/mo.

    Do you know for June 2010 the current lease factors and residuals for the CX9 Grand Touring AWD? Any incentives for retention with Mazda?

    Assuming top of the line credit score in NJ, what lease payment can I expect per month with as little down as possible for either Touring or GT? Wondering if lease values have improved over last 3 years with better data on residuals.

    Thanks,
    dagot

    I just had a similar expeirence. The salesman told me they were charging a $500 fee on top of the taxes and doc fees. Said they could charge what they want and most dealerships charge more, upo to $1500. Thought this was excessive considering that they were forwarding a check to Mazda American Credit. The pruchase option language is pretty clear "official fees, taxes and a reasonable documentation fee". He handed me an internal sales contract with a purchase price $500 more that my purchase option amount. I walked out and contacted the NJ AG's office. Waiting for a response.

    You may want to look deeper into this. I am also in NJ and fed up with dealer add ons.

    I'm looking at leasing a Mazda CX9, Grand Touring, and they are requiring that I purchase the LOJACK system. I'm in California; is it actually a requirement? Or is it that the LOJACK is on all of the Grand Touring models already?

    Any comments would be greatly appreciated!
