    Hello Car Man,

    Can you please give the current residual values and Money Factors for a 2012 Ford Flex SE and SEL model(s) with 12,000 miles a year and a 36 month lease. Is there any current incentives for leases? Thanks!!
  • CarMan@Edmunds[email protected] Member Posts: 38,514
    Hi lasvegasrph. Ford Credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Flex SE with 12,000 miles per year are 1.5% and 50%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a Flex SEL FWD are 1.5% and 54%.

    There is a $1,250 cash incentive on leases of this vehicle right now. Make sure to take this cash into account during your negotiations.

    Greetings to the appropriately named flexbuyer. Hmmmm, Tier 4 credit. I know the top credit tier numbers, I'll have to look into the Tier 4 numbers for you.

    For now I can tell you that the top tier lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Flex Limited AWD with 12,000 miles per year are 1.75% and 52%, respectively everywhere except for in California.

    There is a $1,750 cash incentive on leases of this vehicle. Again the amount is higher in California.

    Thanks Car Man.

    Just a note to other potential Ford lessees. I went back and forth with my dealer on price, etc for about 2 weeks, finally agreed on price, trade-in, etc. When I plugged in all the numbers into a lease calculator using the 2.25% and 52% numbers they gave me, I was coming out with a monthly payment that was about $40 lower than the dealer was quoting me. Of course, I suspected that the dealer was trying to pull something sleazy, but after a little research, I found out that Ford Credit adds a monthly administrative fee to the payment. It is 0.00111 (approximately) times the Cap Cost. So if your cap cost is $36k, that adds $39.96 PER MONTH to the lease payment.

    Be careful out there, people!!

    Hi apowers98. Ford Credit's current base lease rate and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 Flex Titanium AWD with 15,000 miles per year in its New York region are 0.25% and 56%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease are 1.5% and 49%.

    There is a $2,000 cash incentive on leases of this vehicle in your area.

    Hi socalcarfan. A $45,000 Flex...that's one loaded vehicle. The selling price that you quoted looks to be around $1,300 or so over invoice. In a competitive market like Southern California, I personally would want a selling price that's a little closer to dealer invoice than that...say at least another $500 off if not more.

    Hi Car_man:

    Would love your (and others) take on the following lease offer:

    2013 Flex SEL AWD, w 202A, Vista Roof and Nav. MSRP of $41,660.

    $4100 down (includes 1st month, acq fee, etc), so about $3000 cap cost reduction.

    Net selling price of $37,024, includes $1000 incentive (i.e. $38k - $1k).

    $22,900 residual value (55%). 39 month lease, 10,000 miles/yr. Lease payment of $370/month including 7% sales tax. 2% financing -- is that the correct Ford Credit rate?

    This is in New England.

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts anyone has.

    Hello - I am debating on leasing a new 2013 Flex Limted AWD - loaded (except Ecoboost) - here is breakdown in Eastern Pennsylvania:

    Here is numbers I was provided when we started talking about purchasing:
    MSRP $46,940.
    Rebate $2,000.
    Discount $2,496.
    Ford Credit $1,000.
    Net $41,444.

    I have a 2009 GMC Acadia for Trade - they were offering $18,500. which I think is low and I'm considering selling it outright. But they were factoring in $1,000 equity for the trade so the number on loan comes down to $40,444.

    Purchase Deal:
    $687.48/60 months/ZERO down
    $601.16/72 months/ZERO down

    Here is the lease offer - I was told 48% residual on 39 months:
    Lease + Fees
    $647.18 18k miles/year 39 months ZERO Down

    Does the loan and lease offer seem fair? I think the lease seems a bit high - and when I asked about money factor, APR on loan - they dealer was pretty ambiguous and said they would find lowest rate, etc. Seemed a bit fishy...

    I would like to lease -but this seems pretty high with my calculated comparable APR around 6% when I plug the numbers into a spreadsheet I found.

    Thoughts? Thanks in advance -
  • mutchinatormutchinator Member Posts: 2
    Hi - did you ever finalize your lease? I am prepared to do so - but it looks like you had a decent deal on the rate; maybe a bit of a downpayment, but wondering how things worked out for you.
  • realculrealcul Member Posts: 1
    Carman, can I get the current lease numbers (residual and money factor) for 2013 flex limited and sel models. 3yr 12k lease.
  • CarMan@Edmunds[email protected] Member Posts: 38,514
    Yes I do realcul. Ford Credit's December base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Flex Limited AWD with 12,000 miles per year are 1.75% and 54% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The lease rate for the SEL AWD would be the same, but the residual value would be 56%.

    There is a $1,000 cash incentive on leases of this vehicle right now (slightly higher in certain regions). Make sure to take this cash into account during your negotiations.

    Sorry for the tardy reply.

    Yes, we went ahead with the lease under these terms. Seemed like a pretty good deal, and it was on a vehicle that was a hard to-find-color color combination.

    Also, leasing through Ford is particularly advantageous for us, because we live in Providence, RI, where there is a 6% annual car tax (yes, really outrageous, isn't it?). Somehow, FoMoCredit has a deal with the state to pay a state-wide average rate of 1.5%, so that special arrangement saves us around $4000 over the life of the lease.

    I have heard that the Flex is hard for many dealers to get rid of, so aggressive negotiating ought to be possible, particularly for cars on the lot.

    Hello Car_man -
    I'm looking for the current lease numbers for a Flex Limited - fully loaded - in Washington State. 39 months and 12k miles/year.
    Thank you!
  • CarMan@Edmunds[email protected] Member Posts: 38,514
    Hi 993_911. Ford Credit's March base lease rate and residual value for a 39-month lease of a 2013 Flex Limited AWD with 12,000 miles per year are 1.25% and 50%.

    Ford is currently providing a $2,500 cash incentive on leases of this vehicle.

    Looks like the Flex has $3750 of lease cash.

    I see Ford is currently advertising a lease special on the 2014 Flex Titanium. It claims $189 per month for 24 months, 10,500 miles per year, and $3,769 cash due at signing. This seems very competitive for a fully loaded vehicle. Can anyone provide the MF, residual, and lease cash for this deal in California? Thanks!

    0.50% APR and $3000 lease cash. I don't see a Titanium model listed for residual.

    60% residual for SE and Limited models. 62% for SEL model. (all FWD)
