    24 month numbers aren't nearly as competitive - better off sticking with 36 months.

    I've used the Edmunds Lease calculator but am getting different payment amounts from other online calculators. I am looking at either

    2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium
    Model Code: GDD
    Option Code: 15 ( Moonroof Package + Power Rear Gate + Navigation System + EyeSight® + Blind Spot Detection & Rear Cross Traffic Alert)
    CVT (Automatic Transmission)
    Factory Installed Options
    Popular Package #5
    Rear Seat Back Protector

    This vehicle out the door, after trade, with tax, title, etc. would be $29,109.43



    2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited
    Model Code: GDF
    Option Code: 23 (Moonroof Package + Keyless Access with Push-Button Start + Navigation System + EyeSight)
    CVT (Automatic Transmission)
    Factory Installed Options
    Popular Package #5
    Rear Seat Back Protector

    This vehicle out the door, after trade, with tax, title, etc. would be $31,384.43

    I am trying to determine a 36 month/12,000 mile lease rate. The Dealer will have to order the vehicle so it will not be delivered until October. Is there a significant differenc in residuals on the premium vs the limited?

    Could you run a payment number or show me a link that better explains leaseing calculations? Can you negotiate residuals much if you have already negotiated the selling price of the car?

    Thanks

    36/12 lease numbers are as follows:

    Premium - 62% and .00100
    Limited - 62% and .00115

    We'll need some additional information to help you out.

    What is the MSRP of the two vehicles?
    What state do you live in? What is the tax rate?

    You mention a trade - tell me more about that. Do you have positive or negative equity?

    Lots of good articles to be found at this link ...

    Howdy,

    May I please have the money factors and residual values for a 36mos/12k for the below vehicles for St. Petersburg, Florida:
    • 2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited w/ Package #23: Moonroof Pkg, Keyless Access/Pushbutton Start, Navigation, Eyesight
    • 2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium w/ Package #14: Eyesight, side/rear radar system, Power gate
    • 2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium w/ Package #15: Moonroof Pkg, Navigation, Power gate, Eyesight, side/rear radar system
    If it wouldn't be too much trouble, can you also run the same for the 2015 models? Is their a big difference in price between the two? I feel the 2016 is the exact same vehicle as the 2015, but with the added Lane Keep Assist feature.

    Thanks Mitchell... Your quote of $ 343 is right on. This is a Costco negotiated lease. Local dealer wanted $356 for the same car.

    Thanks Again .
  • Can I have lease numbers for San Diego, 36/10K?

    Using the online lease calculator from Edmunds I get a monthly payment for $329 (MSRP 32035 and VIP pricing from ASPCA) The $500 I already put down as a deposit will be used as a down payment. 

    Is this monthly payment pretty accurate? What are the different credit tier ranges?

    Thanks

    Premium or Limited?

    Can't vouch for lease calculators. They make too many assumptions. We use a spreadsheet.

    Premium with Nav and Eyesight. Would your calculations come to around $320?

    Subaru numbers are national, but the dealer is allowed to mark up the MF by as much as .00050

    thanks a lot for this; Do dealers negotiate on the MF? I was quoted 0.00165, which seems like the highest markup on the Subaru rate. I dont understand the markup by the dealer on the MF when the financing is through Subaru. If the capitalised cost is constant, and the lease instalment is going to Subaru finance, what is the dealer's motivation to bump the MF.
    Also, I guess the timing of the question was wrong. Are the September numbers in yet?

    Subaru Finance rebates a portion of the increase to the dealer. So, the dealer makes more money by marking up your rate.

    Hopefully, some time later this week.

  • Forgive my ignorance. I'm in Florida. I am looking at the 2016 Outback limited with eyesite-nav option. Quoted OTD price is $36,101 with no trade. 

    Lease offer is $422.07 for 35 months (15,000 mi/yr) with $2500 down. Based on MF .00115 and residual 57%. 

    How do I tell if this is a good deal?

    You've come to the right place ... base MF on the Outback Limited is .00065, so the dealer is marking that up the max on you.

    What is the breakdown of the $2500 due at signing?

    So, certainly room to improve on that deal. What is the MSRP?

  • Can you tell me the RV and MF for an Outback Limited 2.5 with the moonroof/nav/keyless access/power liftgate/eyesight options on a 36/12 lease? The car will be registered in NY and purchased in either NY or Conn., if that makes a difference. And if it's not asking too much, can I get the same figures for a similarly configured 3.6 Limited, and a Premium with just eyesight/rear x-traffic/blindspot detection? Really appreciate your help, makes me feel like I'm not going in blind. Thanks so much!

    Hello. Can you pls give MF and residual on a 2.5 Limited (with Nav/Eyesight/Moonroof/everything) on a 36/10k lease? This is for southern California. Many thanks!

    I've read that dealer installed options shouldn't be included in the MSRP when calculating the residual value. Is this correct? If so, how does one know what options are dealer installed? Aren't some installed at the port? Are those port-installed options included in the residual calculation? For example, on the Outback Limited, I'm sure that the moonroof, keyless access, eyesight are factory options, and things like floor mats and cargo nets are dealer installed. But what about remote start and alarm shock sensor? Dealer, port, or factory options? Added to the MSRP for RV calculation or not? Makes a big difference because you're paying 100% of the cost of any options not included in the residual, as opposed to roughly 40% of those that are, and for $2k of options, I figure the difference at around $50/month (3/36 lease).
    Thanks for any insight you can provide.

    Port-installed options are on the government sticker and part of the MSRP for residual calculation purposes.

    You won't know without a look at the actual sticker, as some possible PIO could also be dealer-installed, instead.
