  • Is the 2005 S-type lease a good one? $500/ month for 39 months, $4000 down.

     

    Is the 2005 S-type any good? Is it reliable/worth it?

     

    Thanks for any input!
  • For a V6 or V8. The V8 4.2 liter engine is much better and the car comes automatically with a sunroof and adjustable pedals and steering wheel. If your height is shorter or taller than average or different from a second driver who uses your car then it is worth the extra money to get the V8 engine.

    Hi,

    Anyone have any ideas on what kind of deal I should be able to get for a new fully loaded S-Type 3.0? What kind of money factor should I be shooting for?

    Also, they dealer here in Santa Monica, CA has a 2003 loaded S-type with 17K miles for $28K. Is this a good deal?

    Thanks for your input and advise.

    I know this is a little late but I don't see any S-Type R purchase prices here so I thought I'd throw mine up.

    I paid $59,114 for an S-Type R with nav, and front parking sensors.

    This is higher than the current TMV, but I felt it was an ok deal at the time because S-Type R's were pretty hard to find in stock. Anyhow, sweet car.

  • What is the residual% and money factor on the 4.2 L S-Type 2005 for a 24 month lease and 36months
  • Here is the information that you are looking for supertle. According to the latest information that I have seen, if you were to lease a 2005 Jaguar S-Type 4.2L through Jaguar Credit right now for 24 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00023 and 42%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 24 month lease should be .00015 and 52%. When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to keep in mind that Jaguar is providing $3,500 dealer cash on it. This cash is compatible with Jaguar Credit's special lease program and will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost.

  • It's October 6. Could you please revise the data to this date.
  • I'd be happy to give you an update, guitars1. If you were to lease a 2005 Jaguar S-Type 4.2L through Jaguar Credit's new fourth quarter lease program for 24 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00001 and 52%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease should be .00013 and 41%. When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to keep in mind that Jaguar is providing $3,500 dealer cash on it. This cash is compatible with Jaguar Credit's special lease program and will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost.

    I am considering trading in my S80 on a Jaguar 3.0 S-Type. I may lease for the first time ever. What specifically should I be negotiating? What are the going rates for 2005 Jags?
  • I have never leased a car before. Based on your reply above, if I were to lease a 2005 Jag S Type 4.2 ( 8 cyl) what would the actual dollar amounts be per month, residual, etc... I would like to put the least amount down as possible.

    I'd need 15000 miles per month,

    THANKS.
  • Greetings cokie1. Since you are new to the world of leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment. Once you have checked these articles out, stop back and I will be happy to answer any specific questions that you have about leasing a Jaguar S-Type.

  • Hi newbeetle04. Since you have never leased before, you should check out the articles that I just recommended in my previous post as well. I would be happy to give you an idea of what sort of lease payment you should expect on the car that you are interested in, however in order for me to do so I need some additional information from you first. This info includes this car's full MSRP, its approximate selling price, how long you want to lease it for, and how many miles per year you need to be able to drive it. You can find the MSRP for this car by visiting the following section of this site: Edmunds.com - New Vehicle Pricing. Once you tell me these numbers, I'll estimate this car's lease payment for you.

  • Sorry, It's been a while since i've been on. Have started my car search again and am looking possibly at the Jag S, 8 cylinder, no navigation system, 3 yr. lease w/15,000 miles/yr, very little down ( $500-1000). The MSRP w/htd seat option is 52,995, Invoice 48,256.
    Thanks for any insight you can provide. I also have a question out ther to you re: the Volvo S-60.
  • Welcome back newbeetle04. Let's see what sort of information I can share with you. First let's take a look at this car's lease program. If you were to lease a 2006 Jaguar S-Type V8 through Jaguar Credit right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00026 and 46%, respectively. When negotiating your lease on this car, always remember that the selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable. Furthermore, Jaguar is currently providing a $1,000 dealer cash incentive on '06 Jaguar S-Types. This money will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost for your car. I am not intimately familiar with what the market is like for this car right now, but given how terrible Jaguar sales have been lately I suspect that Jag dealers are dying to make sales and would probably be willing to lease you this car for around $500 over invoice before the deduction of the $1,000 dealer cash ($500 under after) if you are in an area where there is a decent amount of competition. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  • I have a 2001 X that is on lease and will expire in July. I'm thinking about moving into a lease for 2006 S 6cl. With the low sales of Jag now - would it be better to wait until my lease is up or nearly up or to try and negotiate a deal now? Thanks.

    Thanks for all your insight. I was quoated the following for a 2005 S-Type R lease, and wanted your opinion.

    2K down
    MSRP - 62,295
    15K miles / yr
    39 months
    Cap - 53,624
    Residual - 27,409
    Money factor - .00089

    It comes out to $799/month (including tax).
  • I'm sorry to say it, but I don't think that Jaguar's sales are going to get any better casinohost. Jag dealers will probably be just as urgent to sell their vehicles in July as they are right now. Of course, it is difficult to predict what manufacturers' future lease programs will be like. Having said that, I don't think that it will cost much more to lease this car later on this year than it does right now. This is just an educated guess though. Given the fact that you will probably have to pay money to get out of your current lease now, you are probably better off waiting until around July to get a new vehicle.

  • No problem, tufts. Jaguar is currently providing $6,000 dealer cash on 2006 S-Type R models that are leased through Jaguar Credit. The price that you were quoted is $8,671 below MSRP, which sounds good at first. However when one takes the $6,000 dealer cash and the fact that a base '05 S-Type R has a spread of $5,340 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice price into account, this deal is not as attractive. It is probably at least $2,669 over invoice for a leftover model that consumers aren't beating down showroom doors for in the first place. I would try to negotiate a lower selling price if I was in your situation.

  • my dealer has MANY 02 and older S and X types. Is it possible to lease these and if so, what are the residual values like? I noticed in the previous post that there was $6k dealer cash on new ones but cannot find this in the Edmunds incentives and rebates section. Is this incentive still out there for 06's?
