Volkswagen Beetle Lease Questions

  • three years ago you helped me get an excellent deal on a vw convertible. i loved it but ready for a larger car. considering the tiquan with some options. can you help me calcuate what the lease payment should be for 36 months with 15,000 miles? (i think they are offering the base model at $279 per month, i'm only adding some options). if i like it i would buy it off the lease. or if they give me a good price i would just buy it in 60 months of payments (i think they have a low finance rate offer right now) dealers are again quoting me $100 more a month on a lease, than i think it should be. i know you figure residual value into a lease but how do you arrive at the number? i think last time i leased they hit me with some extra fee that i could have avoided. here is what i'd like to get.
    Tiquan
    National Base Price
    A note about advertising fees $25,643
    Regional Adjustment
    for Zip Code Change - - $233
    Optional Equipment $3,710
    PVD Navigation System w/Rearview Camera $1,813
    PSR Power Sliding Panoramic Sunroof $1,184
    PJN 18" New York Alloy Wheels $364
    TGM Tiguan Mat Kit $187
    TGG Splash Guards $162
    Color Adjustment - - $0 (white or light silver)
    Not Sure
    Destination Charge$800
    Total with Options $32,320 $29,780 this is what others are paying...$30,386

    if you think its worth waiting for the BMW X1 please tell me !!
    thank you in advance for any help.
    best, susi

    Welcome back cluelessinca.

    It sounds like you don't completely understand how to calculate lease payments. You definitely should check out the following informative articles on the subject that are available here at Edmunds.com: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    In short, the easiest way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that you decide to go with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor.

    Volkswagen's advertised lease on the 2010 Tiguan isn't a bad deal, but like with most manufacturers' official advertised payments I suspect that you should be able to negotiate a lower selling price than the one which was used to arrive at that payment by shopping around.

    If I was in the market for a '10 Tiguan right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of $500 or so over dealer invoice.

    Hey all,

    I'm looking at purchasing/leasing a 2013 Beetle Convertible TDI with tech, sound, and nav this month. Does anyone have info on VW financing offers for the month of April and/or the money factor and residual value for a 36-month and/or 48-month 12,000-miles/year lease. I might be willing to flip from a TDI to a 2.0 turbo if there are better specials on it during the month of April. Thanks in advance.
