2013 and earlier-Mercedes-Benz C-Class Lease Questions



  • Thanks. Can you say what the Mfg cash support is for the holiday event this month, and what % discount is reasonable to expect from the dealer?

    Hi, it's my first time looking at leases so I wanted to get another opinion:

    2013 C250 basic sport package, used by dealer so ~9000miles already
    Sticker Price ~31000
    Quoted 29980 cap cost and 23,047 Residual

    I am trading in an old car and getting some cash back which basically amounts to me paying $1500 cash down out of pocket.

    Quoted payments were $350/month for 26 months including tax in CA.

    Can someone you help me break this down and figure out if it is a good deal, it seems a little high as I have seen some people say a lower monthly fee for a 2014. Thanks!
  • I'm sorry, I don't have incentive information. Since I'm not actively shopping for this model, other forum members would be a better resource for prices paid.

    Can you also give the C350 numbers for November with 24 month and 30 month terms? Thanks!
  • 2014 C350 RWD Sedan 30 month, 15K/yr lease
    Standard money factor and 67% residual
    24 month residual is 72%
    36 month residual is 65% (which is the sweet spot)

  • Hi kyfdx,

    Two follow up questions. 1) What is the standard money factor? 2) What is the residual for 10K miles and 36 month lease?

    Thank you!

  • I'm not sure... they don't publish it, but anecdotal evidence says it's somewhere between .00195-.00225, and Mercedes dealers are pretty liberal with the mark-ups on it...

    10K/yr residuals are 3% higher than 15K/yr residuals

  • Hi Everyone,

    I've found a leftover 2013 C250. Its loaded with a sticker price of 47300 which includes the destination & Delivery. The salesman hinted I could get the final cap cost near $40,000 not including fees.

    Does anyone know if MB Finance has a lower MF to help move the remaining inventory of 2013s?
    What would the residual be for 12k miles per year for both the 27 and 36 month lease terms?
    Does the residual go down much for 15K miles a year? I drive about 13500 miles a year so I'm right in-between.
    Are there any additional cash incentives out there right now?

    I appreciate the help. It'll make the negotiations go much smoother.

    2013 C250 Sedan 36mo, 12K/yr lease
    .00124 MF and 54% residual

    The 24 month residual is 67%... I don't have the 27 month residual, but if they are running a special, they often use the 24 month number.

    Subtract 2% from all residuals for 15K/yr
