    Hi Michael - saw you stated Mazda 2016 CX5 GT- AWD lease numbers in PA as: .00060, 63% for 36/12 - does that apply nationwide and for the FWD as well? I'm in CA.

    Thanks

    Hi Michaell. You seem very knowledgeable so I thought you might know this. I was ready to lease a new Tahoe, but when I test drove it, it has a stutter (almost like it was missing on one cylinder) at moderate acceleration. The car was right off the truck and had not been prepared by the service department, other than checking fluids (still had protective plastic on paint and plastic on seats). Could this be something that would be fixed during dealer prep in the service department? I like the car, but don't want to buy into a bunch of headaches? Ever heard of anything like this? ECU learning ??

    Thanks

    Thank you Michaell for your input. You are very helpful to those less knowledgeable. For me, there are so many variables between price and whether to lease or buy (for business use) that it is hard to make a decision.

    Thank you in advance for any information. In SF Bay Area and interested in 2015 Audi S3 Lease. Was quoted today S3 Prestige w 19-inch wheels MSRP $50,210. 36 month, 10k miles, residual value is 54%. 36 months lease with $1,400 down payment is $723.

    If you can provide the money factor and residual, that would be great. I can try to figure out what payment SHOULD be. If you can actually do the calculation, then that would be super awesome.

    I have never leased a car and have been trying to educate myself with leaseguide dot com and I hope I understand their formula correctly. I used your figures of 36/10 - .00102 MF, 56% Residual, 6% off MSRP, i get a payment of $637 with $1,400 down payment. is this correct or within ballpark ?

    Thank you again for all your efforts on this forum.

    Hi Michaell,

    I used the leaseguide.com calculator but can't seem to get the correct payment using the numbers you provided on a 2015 Honda CRV CVT LX in San Antonio, TX. Any suggestions? A different online Lease Calc?

    Thanks,

    Hi Michael. First, thanks for feeding everyone the latest residual and MF numbers.. no matter how many times we ask for the same rates :)

    Second, I am in the market for a vehicle and was wondering if you knew, off the top of your head, which company has the best deals this April. I mean, you've looked up all these numbers across manufacturers, did one strike you as cheaper/good deal for this month?

    I'm looking closely at the Forester or Outback as we need a bigger back seat for rear-facing baby seat and wagonish trunk for our dog. But the BMW X1 looks good and maybe some other crossover could be a better deal. .

    Thanks ahead of time!

    So I was trying to research lease options for an Outback (I am also in Colorado) but apparently don't know anything about leases other than the residual - what is the money factor people are talking about?

    Thank you - I thought the mf seemed high. here is additional price info:
    msrp- $49655
    dealer discount - 1,368. (not enough)
    Appearance protection already applied 599.00
    Nitro filled tires 139.00
    Net selling price 49,025

    plus FL taxes 3,008.89
    Tag/reg estimate 268.75
    tire/battery/MVWEA 8.50
    Documentation Fee 699.95

    Balance Due $53,011.09

    seems high to me

    Also should the residual be based on msrp or the negoiated selling price?

    THANKS!

    I have 2 different quotes. Elk Grove is based on 39/12kmiles $439 payment and the second is on 39/10miles $423 payment but was told its a $13 add price for 39/12k at $437

    Only difference I believe is that the cheaper doesn't have illuminated kick plates

    Is one deal better then the other? I leaning toward a 39/12miles.
    Both cars are 2015 q50sport

    Thank you-

    Michaell: I haven't been to edmunds in years. Back now and having trouble navigating new forum. Here's what I'm trying to find. A discussion about toyota sienna awd vs. minivan fwd. I try searching specifically on that topic but I don't find much if any of a discussion. Maybe there isn't one. But can you tell me the best way to search for that topic AND make sure I'm starting with the most recent discussion? I've been tooling around the forums but I can't seem to find the best way to: Plus, seeing a topic and then seeing the number of pages: 1,2,.....infinity- does that mean there are that many pages for my specific topic (toyota sienna awd), or that many pages for the general topic (toyota sienna?)

    thanks

    Hi Michaell, Where do you get these MF and Residual numbers? Also, is the MF number you are quoting the base that is offered from each of the manufacturers? I am just trying to understand so when I go into the dealership I know what I am talking about. Thank you.

      The numbers are provided to us each month and are not public. The MF we quote are the base rates for top tier credit.
