  • 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?
  • timjtimj Posts: 1
    My wife is a X-plan member because of her employer, which allows us to purchase a Jaguar at 4% above invoice without negotiations. A S-Type with the options we want has an invoice price of $46,974 plus the 4% mark up of $1,990 for X-Plan members totalling $48,964. However, I am not sure if this is a good deal based on discussions within this forum regarding the poor sales of Jaguars. In additional the dealer is offering $2,000 lease cash, which basically offsets the 4% markup of the X-Plan reducing the price to $46,964. Do you recommend going with the company's X-plan or attempting to negotiating a price without mentioning the plan. Considering the current sales and lease cash, what price above invoice is fair and reasonable for a dealer. Also, there are 4 Jaguar dealers in a 50 mile radius of my home.

    "Jaguar is currently providing $6,000 dealer cash on 2006 S-Type R models that are leased through Jaguar Credit. "

    I see only $1,000 listed (on Edmunds = loyalty) on the 2006.
    Did you mean 2005?
    Thanks,

    Hey bikeswimrun. Many manufacturers, I believe including Jaguar, have lease programs for Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. The problem with leasing used vehicles is that automakers usually provide much less lease support on them, if any, than they provide on new vehicles. As a result, used vehicles are often as expensive to lease, or even more so, than equivalent brand new models. This is why it is extremely important to compare the cost of leasing a new vehicle to the cost of leasing a used one when you are considering the latter.

    I don't believe that Jaguar's cash incentives on 2006 X- or S-Types have reached the $6,000 level yet. Perhaps the post that you read was referring to a 2005 model.

    Hi timj. I would not be surprised at all if you were able to negotiate a selling price that is well below 4% over invoice on the S-Type that you are interested in. Jaguar sales have been extremely poor lately. Many Jaguar dealers are probably willing to cut pretty skinny deals on S-Types right now. You might as well see how good a deal you can negotiate on your own. The fact that you have a whopping four Jaguar dealers so close to your home definitely will work to your advantage during negotiations. If you can't beat the X-Plan price, you can always play that card out when you need it.

  • a dealer in my state has a 2005 S type. Is it possible to get this car at $6000 below invoice since that is what Jag was offering dealers as an incentive? With a MSRP of $52K and a purchase price of $42K what would be the lease payments for not more than 36 or 39 months? I have been quoted money factors on new (06) X-types in the .0003 range (less than 1%). Are the incentives on '05s Jag offered before still available to the dealer so that they could cut the price that much?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi bikeswimrun. Jaguar is currently providing $4,000 dealer cash on S-Type 3.0L and $6,000 on 4.2L models. This dealer cash can be combined with Jaguar Credit's special lease program. On top of this dealer cash, Jaguar is providing a $2,200 cash incentive on leases of '05 S-Types through Jaguar Credit. I suspect that you will be able to get an '05 S-Type for dealer invoice minus these incentives without too much difficulty right now. Are you interested in the 3.0L or the 4.2L model? If you let me know I'd be happy to estimate what your lease payment should be on it.

    I need to check - but last I knew, no Atlanta area dealers still had 2005s . .

    Just found this forum.....looks great. I have X Plan pricing available to me, but dealer (where I have an existing leased X Type) says he will beat it (which it looks like he did). But I want to be sure I have the best lease deal as I see differing incentive programs on different web sites plus a Jag incentive lease program where I can't find out all the parameters (money factor, residuals, etc).

    Here's the deal. Suburban Chicago area. 2006 S Type 3.0 with premium package, heated seats, and navigation system. MSRP (with destination) $50,895 -- Invoice $46,081. Sales price about $45,400 -- 39 month lease, 10,000 miles/year -- 43% residual -- .00007 money factor (equals 0.168% APR). Dealer pays last payment on current lease (X Type = $402). $1000 down -- lease = $699/month. No mention of any rebates. On the surface, it seems to be a good deal with dealer going below invoice for cap cost (easily beating X Plan), picking up the last payment on existing vehicle, and buying down the lease money factor. Uses up most of factory incentive to the dealer. But then I see that there is a $469 lease program at Jaguar on the base S Type (which must be using a high residual) and that there may be a customer $1,500 loyalty rebate which should come to me. Also, the 43% residual seems low for a 10,000 mile lease. I have not agreed to signed any customer rebates over to the dealer. Car should be ready tomorrow when everything will be signed. Have asked dealer to fax all paperwork to me before I come in and sign on the dotted line so I can examine all factors. Thoughts?

    Just re-leased my 3 year old Jag for another 2 yrs. 5 days later car malfunctioned. When I applied brake to stop, car would NOT stop. Made a strange noise,then suddenly accelerated & I crashed! Jag "diagnosed" car & couldn't "find" the problem, so they said that there is no problem!! I know of 5 other Jag owners that had this same problem & got the same answer from Jag! I had car towed back to dealer after their body shop repaired body & I REFUSE to ever drive it again! MY PROBLEM: Jaguar Credit, which is OWNED by Jaguar Cars will NOT let me out of my lease! They say I owe them for the 2 years remaining & call me daily & ruined my credit rating! HELP!
