    You can call the dealer and ask for the residual value. Or you can search different lease calculators on the internet to get the residual value. There are several sites that list residual values.

    When you lease a car, the residual value is listed in the contract and you have the right to buy the car at that amount at the end of the lease. Sometimes, a lease company will lower that price so they don't have to take the car back and sell it at auction.

    I'm wondering why you want to know the residual value of a lease return. Is it so you can make a low offer to buy the car?
