    Picked one up few weeks ago. '14 ML350W4 MSRP $62800 special ordered car, $3k below invoice 36months, 12k/yr $1300 drive off with Maintenance $830/inc tax in north California

  • Hi Carman, can you please help me with the residual value and MF on 2014 ML for Jan? Looking for 10K / yr lease. Thank you.

    carman, if these numbers don't come out until half way through the month do they go into February? My order will be done the first week of February and delivered a week or 2 later and am trying to get an idea of what to expect for MF and RV on 10k/year. MBUSA seems to push specific lease terms so I am open to whichever turns out to be the best deal. Thanks for the info.

    Unfortunately, we didn't get the new numbers, so I can't tell you when they expire. (or, even what they are)..

    that's no fun. Are you expecting them or is this a long term shortage?

  • kyfdx@Edmundskyfdx@Edmunds Posts: 25,919

    It's hard to say... I expect we will see them again, but it might be next month..

    are these Jan or Feb numbers? do you have 10k/yr 4matic sweetspot?

    I've been requesting lease quotes on ML550. Dealers said the rate on 2013 model is very bad, one of the quote even gave less than 50% residual on 12k, 36 months lease. Anyone knows why? I thought they should be trying to clear out 2013 model with better deals, but it's seems not the case? Is 0.00225 for current MF seems right?

    January.. 36 month looks to be the best program.

    The top of the line of each model generally suffers the most depreciaton and also has buyers that are less price sensitive... Lease numbers are driven by marketing...

    Plus, it's very late in the 2014 model year.. A 2013 model that is leased now will be 4 model years old at the end of the lease.... the residuals reflect that.

    Hi kyfdx/all

    2014 ml350/4 p1 and paint, Msrp 56k Neg 51.5

    Came back with 800, 5k down, for 15k, 30 month lease. I'd rather not comment on how bad that deal is.

    Came back with negotiated price of 50k, 625 a month, 5k down. I wanted to get acquisition to 795 and mf rate of .00132 after that bogus first quote. Also I confirmed residual of 60 percent.

    However, my numbers are still not adding up. I'm calculating a fair bit lower. Is the MF still not where I want it to be?

    Also, I know I qualify for 2k fleet but do not want to mention this until the last moment (dont want to mix their offer and my qualified program together) I can stack the fleet discount on top to get it to 48k, correct? I also want to target the selling price to 49.5, which would give me a selling of 47.5

    I don't have my calculator in front of me, but I should be in ballpark of 585 with 2k due at signing with taxes rolled into the monthly (assuming selling of 48k with fleet)

    Want to stay with this dealer. Aside from the HIGH initial offer, I like them.

    Is this offer too aggressive? Thanks!

  • Oops I mean 2700ish at signing

  • Can you please provide me the latest MF and residual for a 2014 ML550?

    Thanks,

  • I read that the BlueTec has the highest Residual value.... However, I am looking to order the car because all the ones that I have seen are too basic in my area. Does anyone have an experience on negotiating a car that you are ordering?? They said that the price is Sticker because I am ordering it..... I don't believe that. Any insight would be great....

    Hi Saxobeat, I ordered a Bluetec from my dealer, and I anticipate delivery in March/April. Since I will lease, I know that I will have to use the RV and MF available at the time of delivery, but I suspect that the MF will be standard, so I will likely buy it down via MSDs. I didn't discuss pricing with my dealer for 2 reasons. 1. It may depend on the leverage and/or dealer incentives he has available at the time, and 2. I generally have a good rapport with my dealer having leased multiple MB's from him in the past, most recently an E350 in Sept.

    My expectations are tempered. I don't expect to get an exceptional deal, but I know that my dealer is transparent, so I anticipate a reasonable deal, that's better than most, for the exact ML that I wanted.

    Cheers!
