  • I know I will have to negotiate price with the dealer, but what price can I expect for a:
    2009 SEL w/ RES
    15K per year
    36month lease (they offering 39 month right now and 39 is OK too)
    What am I looking at for residual %?
    What is the current money factor?
  • FYI on the Routan, in case you haven't heard, it's a Chrysler Town & Country with Volkswagen badging. It shares nearly everything including some sheet metal, doors and roof. It's even built in the same plant in Ontario as the Chrysler vans. The only major difference is that the Routan doesn't have the Chrysler's Stow N' Go seating so if you needed to maximize cargo space you'd have to manually lift the hundred pound middle row seats out of the van. Sure there are subtle differences in the two. But I'd go with the Chrysler. The Chrysler Town & Country I mean, not the Chrysler Routan.
  • Similar yes, same no. I have seen and researched both.
    I don't need to maximize cargo space, I have a truck, I need passenger space. Those "hundred pound seats" are more comfortable than the stow and go seats.

    I am looking for a lease not a purchase. Chrysler doesn't lease their minivans.
  • "I know I will have to negotiate price with the dealer, but what price can I expect"

    At least $5K more than a Chrysler Town & Country. You could probably buy the Chrysler for the same payment as leasing the Routan.
  • Hi mgoblue3. Volkswagen Credit's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 VW Routan SEL with RES and 15,000 miles per year are .00137 and 47%, respectively. Interestingly, the numbers are exactly the same for a 39 month lease, so that clearly is the better deal.

  • Thanks for the info. The money factor of .00137 seems very attractive. I was quoted 49% residual for 15K per year and 51% residual for 12K per year.
  • You're very welcome, mgoblue3. A .00137 money factor isn't bad. It's equivalent to an interest rate of around 3.3%.

    I was looking for a second opinion on what I should be paying for a VW Routan lease as part of the sign then drive promotion.

    The car is a Routan SE with Package 2 (Moon roof, roof rails and trailer prep) and Climate package (32720 including destination charge.)

    I believe the residual is 52%, the quoted money factor is .00157 (I have heard that is should be .00137), for 39 months, 15000 miles per year. The dealer is taking $1,500 off the MSRP and there is $1,500 in VW loyalty, not sure how this is being added (dealer says it is being used to cover dmv fees and such.) There is a doc fee of $149.00, dmv fees of $338.50, the purchase is NJ with 7% sales tax.

    The offer is $0 down $465.21 per month including tax, VW makes the first payment.

    Does this sound right? I am not able to calculate this exact payment on my own and whatever I do come up with the dealership tells me is wrong, apparently the lease calculators I am using are not accurate (using both www.theautoleasecalculator.com and www.leaseguide.com/calc.htm)

    Thanks,

    Tom
  • I just leased an SEL w/ RSE for 39 months. MSRP was 36,990. The money factor was .00137 and the residual for 15k miles was 49%. If I wanted 12k miles per year the residual would have been 51%. They did give me 1500 for dealer cash, 500 VW loyalty, and they paid the first payment.
  • what did your monthly payment come out to? if you dont mind...
  • What was your purchase price as well and where did you buy from (what state at least)?
  • My payments came out to $406.
    The key to me deal was getting the purchase price worked out and not using the MSRP as a "fixed" number. I will have to get my contact out of the van later when my wife gets home and post all my numbers.
  • I'll have to post the details later when I can get the contract out of the van. I have a rough worksheet that I worked on with the dealer which lists MSRP as 36990, cap cost of 30,348.32. This cap cost was based upon a trade in of 2000 so actual purchase price was about 32000.
    I am in North Carolina.

    i bought mine mine, but if it helps people gauge what their lease would go for, i got an SEL with RES for 33990 (plus tax and title). Hard to justify a lease when VW is offering 0% financing and the residuals are under 50%, but that's just me.

    Good luck.
  • anyone know the lease terms for an SE 3yr/12k? thanks.

    Picking up a 2010 Routan SE w/ RSE & Nav on Monday:
    36mo 36k mi lease in NY/NJ area
    $1000 total due at signing includes tax, 3yrs of NY tags, 1st mo payment
    $438/mo

    Is this okay? Are there still 2009s left that I'm better off buying instead of this lease?

    Hey CarMan...looking for some info on a 36 month lease, 15,000 miles per year. Also, am I reading the current incentives correctly that there is $4,000 incentive on leases through 11/1/10? I am looking at either model, depending on what is still left. Thanks in advance! I'm in NJ, if that makes a difference.
  • Hey heathernj. Here's the information that you're looking for.

    Volkswagen Credit's September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Routan SEL w.RSE and 15,000 miles per year are .00113 and 42%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2010 Routan SEL Premium are .00011 and 38%.

    There is indeed a $4,000 cash incentive on leases of the Routan SEL through VW Credit right now.
