    Was wondering if you could confirm I am doing my lease correct.

    Rates are 61% (15k) Residual and 3.5% MF (0.0014583) - Dealer quote.

    2015 F150 Crew 4x4 Lariat
    MRSP = 51500
    Base Cap = 46986
    Acquisition Fee = 595
    Down Payment 5k
    Adjusted Cap = $42581

    I am showing:
    Dep Fee = $310.17
    Financial Fee = $107.91
    Sales Tax 7%
    PAYMENT = $447.34

    Hello, I would like to take a moment of your time for advice if that's ok? I am currently leasing a 2012 Acura MDX. I have 2 years left on my lease. I wanted to know what my options are if I want to end it? I would like to swap it out for a 2015 for the remaining 2 years. Then I would like to finance the rest so I don't have to start over with another full balance to finance. Is this possible? I searched the forums but haven't found anything specifically on the subject. Thank you in advance for your help!

    Thanks for your reply.

    I may head to the dealer later today, so am hoping for an answer.

    Do you have any idea if the MF is being marked up for my deal? In TX, thru BMW FS.

    They are telling me 1.70.

    Hi KYFDX

    Would you have the money factor/residual for 2014 Jeep Cherokee LIMITED, 4WD, V4, on 36/10 for the month of December, LA, California, on excellent credit.

    is there much difference with the 2015 money factor?

    I posted this one the 2014 Nissan Altima Lease page but figured I'd go right to you as I've seen you are quite familiar w this area. But I really could use some help now as I plan on going tomorrow to really lease this car. Could use some emergency help. Not completely sure I understand the calculation process here. Looking to buy a 2014 (yes 2014) 2.5 SV w/ no packages added. I checked and they still have a few by me in NY (LI). Considering I am buying a 2014 so late, there should be significant incentive. Can anyone help me ballpark what a good monthly payment would be for this specific car w everything rolled into 500 down and rest of the payments (12k/39m/MSRP $25,150/tier 1 credit). Would really appreciate the MAX I should even consider going to per month.

    Hello, Do you know what the lease rates are for October. I am looking for the numbers on a 2014 & 2015 Tiguan RLine & SEL. Any incentives (ex. dealer cash, USAA, etc.) Also, if anyone can advise on what they have achieved or seen on sales price. Thanks in advance.

    Hey kyfdx, been following your posts for a while and now I need some help and guidance!

    I am looking to lease a 2015 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 RWD with Tech Package this Wednesday, MSRP $46,535.

    The national lease deal is still $429 per month on the base Genesis 3.8 RWD with $3,999 down and MSRP of $38,950, 12k and 36 month term. Based on your previous posts the assumptions I see used in addition to this is a MF of .00125 and a residual value of 57%.

    I want to figure out what an equivalent lease payment would be on the Tech Package assuming a $46,535 MSRP and a negotiated price of $42,900. I am using the same MF and RV, same terms and getting a monthly lease pre-tax of $425.

    I feel like I am off somewhere, am I? Are my assumptions illogical? I want to be ready to negotiate well this Wednesday! Thanks for all your help.

    Any update on my request for the residual value and money factor numbers for the 2015 Mercedes C Class. I live in NY. 10K per year for 36 months. Also are there any incentives to buying this car vs. leasing?

      If you asked previous to September 1st, re-post in the same discussion and we'll see it.

    Hi, a local ford local dealer just quoted me $536/mo pretax for a 2015 Explorer Sport with 400a package 36mo/12k. MSRP: $46,525; selling price: $42,750; quoted 1% APR rather than money factor. My math results in a pretax monthly of $480/mo. Is my APR conversion incorrect 1% APR/2400x100 = .00041. Residual 57%? thank you.

    Hi, I'm just wondering if its predicted the MF will change much for the month of September (from August) on the Mitsubishi Outlander, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and Kia Sorento? I already have numbers from you from last month but curious if they tend to change drastically ? Thanks!

    Thanks for your reply regarding the rogue. Do the values MF and residual change if it's only 12k miles per yr versus 15k?

    Hi kyfdx
    Do you know the MF and the res. for a 2014 and a 2015 grand cherokee limited with sunroof and navigation for the New York City area?
    Looking to possibly end my lease early (3 months to go) and the dealership is offering me $439 per month taxes included 7500 a year + bank fee and DMV and I wouldn't have to worry about any excess wear and tear...we only put 22k on the car and the lease is almost up. Is that a good deal?

    do you work for a dealership? I'm about to make a deal on an A6 lease coming out of an A4 lease. They are early terminating for 2 months, but I also only have 16,500 miles on a 36000 mile lease. In the past I have been able to use the equity to pay out of pocket fees.
    When I called Audi Financial they said that my payoff quote is different than what the deal quote would be. Something about the dealer getting fair market value or something. If I sent you the vin number, would you be able to get a dealer payoff amount? I'm actually heading to the dealer later this afternoon.
