    Thank you for the information. To confirm, they're offering $1250 lease cash and those residuals on the not yet out 2015 ST? Or are those for 2014 ST's still in inventory?

    I should have clarified I was asking about 2014 ST's in inventory, my apologies.

    We don't have MF information for 2014 Fords. The 36/15 residual for the 2014 ST is a dismal 40%. Add 2% for 12K.

    The information provided above is for the 2015 ST; I wasn't aware they weren't at dealers yet.

  • Can you assist me with something? Yesterday my wife went into the Ford Dealer to look at the Focus lineup. Looking at the sheet they provided her it turns out she was quoted a 2015 Ford Focus Titanium Hatch with the following in Illinois:
    36 MO/15k

    Retail Price: $25,390
    Savings: $693.00
    Selling Price: $24,697
    Fees: $389.43
    **Sales Tax $1,742.33
    Net Sales Price: $26,828.76

    ** Finance Tax 7.00%

    Rebate: $1,750.00
    Down: $1500

    Monthly Payment Range: $371-$391

    I'm trying to derive from what they provided her how its coming out to that Monthly Payment Range. The sales tax added into the Net Sales Price kind of threw me.
  • Here is my math. This assumes that the Sales Tax on the Invoice price is rolled into the payments.

    Sticker Price: $25390
    Residual: .5
    Residual value: 25390*.5=12695
    Invoice Price: $24697
    Minus incentives: 24697-1750-1500=21447
    Plus Sales Tax and fees: 21447+2118.22=23565.22
    Monthly Depreciation Payment: (23565.22-12695)/36=301.9506

    MF: .0008333
    MF payment: (23565.22+12695)*.0008333=30.2156413

    Monthly Base: 301.95+30.22=332.17

    Sales Tax: .07
    Sales Tax Payment = 332.17*.07=23.2519


    Total: 301.95+30.22+23.2519= $355.42

    Nope. Illinois just changed the tax laws regarding leases on 1/1/15 - only the monthly payment is subject to tax each month. Last year, the entire selling price was taxed, which made lease payments quite expensive.

    If I use the MSRP of $25,390 and the price minus incentives of $21,447 as the net cap cost, along with the MF and residual you've quoted, I get a pre-tax payment of $271.45/mo for 36 months.

    Ask the dealer what the net cap cost is, and how they arrived at that number from the selling price less incentives. I find it hard to believe that it would cost $350/mo for a $25K Focus.

  • Thanks, Michaell. That's what i got as well when taking out the sales tax of the vehicle. I was surprised when they had it listed on the sheet considering the new Illinois tax law. I appreciated your help!

    It's possible the dealers (or their personnel) are slow to understand the change in the laws.

    True, I also bet a lot of people in Illinois are not informed of it as well. Thanks again for your help. I'll go back and ask for a more detailed breakdown of the numbers they were using.

    And, plenty of Ford dealers for you to choose from if the one you're working with isn't forthcoming.

    Gotcha, thanks. Can you explain that MF? I've never seen one expressed like that. Is it really that high?

    Ford uses percentages ... divide by 2400 to get the decimal equivalent.
