    Thanks for the reply, Car_man. I don't think the $5000 can be combined with the low financing through Mazda. I found 3.99% for 60 months and 4.75% for 72 months from PenFed. They also have a program called a Payment Saver Loan. It's basically a balloon loan, but the rate is 4.24%, which I think is pretty good for this type of loan. The only drawback that I see about this is that I can't return the car at the end like I can with a lease. Are you familiar with this loan from PenFed?

    Thanks.

    No problem krwest1. What you are describing is called a balloon note. Balloon notes are very similar to leases. Unfortunately, I am not familiar with PenFed.

    Car_man, any ideas on what the August or Sept. 2009 Residual and MF is for any Miatas (09)? Which months of the year do they usually have best incentives (buy or lease)? Thanks.

    Hi ck90211. Mazda's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Mazda Miata Sport with an automatic transmission and 15,000 miles per year are .00059 and 45%, respectively. I had to make some assumptions about the term, mileage allowance, and trim level that you're interested in. Let me know if you want something different.

    When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $1,000 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of it.

    Unlike some manufacturers that have annual sales events, i.e. the Lexus "December to Remember," I don't believe that there is a single best time of the year to lease a Mazda...at least not one that I am aware of.

  • How does the leasing company calculate buy out price? I know residual value is involve. Is there some sort of formula involve? Also say if there is cashback incentive for financing, can you take that into consideration when leasing a car?
  • What's the difference between cashback and lease cash? Can they both be combine?
  • Hi acehawk. Vehicles' end-of-term purchase option prices are based upon their residual values. Your leased vehicle's residual value is calculated at lease signing and it is used to determine the depreciation portion of your monthly payment. It is based upon a percentage of your car's full MSRP including destination plus the MSRPs of any options that are allowed to be residualized.

    The cash incentives that are available on financed vehicles are not necessarily available on leased vehicles.

  • Hey acehawk. Let's take a look at the incentives that are currently available on the 2009 Miata. Mazda is providing $2,000 dealer cash on this car in October. However, this cash is not compatible with its special lease program. The cash allowance that is available on leases drops to $1,000.

  • Here's the information that you're looking for, Neil. Mazda's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Miata PRHT Touring with an automatic transmission and 15,000 miles per year are .00086 and 48%, respectively.

    This car's 12,000 mile per year residual value would be 2% higher and its 10,000 mile per year resid would be 3% higher.

    Thanks

    Hello chittus. Here you go. Mazda's current lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a Miata Sport with 12,000 miles per year are .00158 and 52%, respectively.

    The Miata's residual values vary by trim level. You never mentioned exactly which one you want so I guessed that it is the Sport. Let me know if you want something different.

    Hello all. I am seriously considering leasing a Miata. Grand Touring with Power Retractable Hard Top, auto, Premium package and Appearance package. On Mazda's website, the car is $33,240. Carsdirect.com's price is $31k. I am looking at either a 36-month or 48-month lease, with 15k miles/annually. Would something like approximately $1k to $1,500 down, $300 some odd (preferably $300 even) be some realistic numbers? Or should I add some more into it? Thanks! :D

    Hi, looking at a Mazda PRHT Automatic - Grand Touring with premium package. What MF and residual can I expect for the 2011 v 2012 with excellent credit? Wondering how much they vary. I expect to be under 12K miles per year and looking for 3 year term. Also, what price is the residual based on -sticker or invoice?
    Thanks
  • Hi sfan10. Mazda's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 PHRT Grand Touring with 12,000 miles per year are .00201 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for it top credit tier.

    Mazda is not providing lease support on the 2011 version of this car any longer.

    Vehicle's residual values are based upon a percentage of their full MSRPs, including the destination charge and the MSRPs of any options that can be residualized.

    Thanks for the info Car_man. Sorry to hear that about the 2011....

    Also surprised the MF isn't a bit better; assume that adjusts based on seasonality, etc.? (No need to offer lower when the model is new...likely to have better rates any time soon, e.g. for the holidays?)

    Hi Carman,

    It appears Mazda has a decent lease on both the 2012 Sport soft top for 24 months and the 2012 Touring PRHT model. Do you know if there is lease cash available? Also, can you give me the residual and money factor for the two vehicles above for 10k miles for 24 and 36 months.

    Thanks.

    I'm also interesting in leasing this car.

    Most likely a 2012 touring AT, 10K miles for 24 or 36 months. Can you please provide the residual and money factor Carman!

    Thanks in advance!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi snaproll. Chase's May buy rate lease money factor and residual value or a 24-month lease of a 2012 MX-5 Sport with 10,000 miles per year are .00002 and 60%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are .00006 and 51%.

    The numbers for the PRHT are .00048 / 59% and .00055 / 50%.

    There is currently a $1,500 cash incentive on leases of these cars that you should make sure to take into account during your negotiations.

    Hi Mr. Car Man. Do you happen to have the current info for the above? Does the trim line matter?

    Thanks!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi snohflake. The trim level doesn't matter for the money factor, it's .00011 for top tier customers for all non-hard top Miata models, but the residual values do vary by trim. The 36-month, 15,000 mile per year residual values are 48% for the Touring, 49% for the Sport with manual transmission and 50% for the Sport with auto.

    Can I get the mf and residual for the hardtop touring and grand touring, with manual, 24 month lease (10k, 12k and 15k if they have it). Do packages (sport, etc.) change the numbers?

    Can I also get any current incentives?

    Thanks
  • _qs_qs Posts: 3
    For anyone else looking for this info, I believe these numbers are good until sept. 5th:

    MX-5 Manual PRHT
    24mo/10k
    mf: 0.00065
    residual: 61%

    24mo/12k
    mf: 0.00065
    residual: 63%

    1800 lease cash from chase
