4The 3.6L Passat is due in the showroom in a couple of weeks. What will be the residual value and money factor for a 12K/year, 36-month lease?

Thanks.

32I'm interested in getting a 2 years/10,000 miles lease for a 2006 Passat 2.0 T with package 1. The MSRP is 27,215 and I expect to pay the taxes up front. Do you know what figure I should consider reasonable? I will appreciate your answer

Thanks a lot

Alex

5My current offer from a dealer in NC is as follows:

2006 Passat 2.0T with Package #2, Dynaudio, and upgraded wheels.

MSRP is approx 29800.

24 month lease, $1000 down, 15K/year : 430/mo

36 month for 350/mo

Is this a good deal, or can I do better?

32I got an offer from my dealer

30 months 10,000 miles

MRSP 27,215

Selling Price: 26,600

Residual:17,145

0 Down and pay all taxes and title upfront 2,370

Do you think it is a decent deal. My goal is to talk down the price to 26,500 which is about the listed price at edmunds.com.

I will appreciate if you can kindly let me know whether it is a good deal

Thanks

Alex

8I am in need of help leasing my first car and I don't know what questions I need to ask. I have poor credit and needed a cosigner to deal with the VW bank. I was quoted on a passat 2.0t for 46 months a high monthly payment close to $400 with no money down just the first payment. 15,000k a year. I was reading what you suggested and I need to get the sale price on the car, what else should I ask for and can I get back to you tomorrow for help.

Thanks,

Tracey

32I'm sorry but I forgot to mention to you that the monthly lease payment is $353 per month for 30 months. with that in mind, you do think I should go for it?

Please let me know and many thanks in advnace

Alex

22Just an FYI. I was offered a 2.0T with pkg 2 and AT, MSRP $28415 for $300 over invoice. The lease was for 30 months, 15k per year and came to 360/mo with 1194 out of pocket (bank fee, MV, docs, and 1st pymt) Residual was 61% and the MF 0.0008.

Hope this helps!

Good Luck.

Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

Edmunds Moderator5Sorry for the inconvenience... The dealer is discounting the car $2,000 from the msrp of $29,800. (pkg 2, dynaudio, upgraded wheels). Including tax, and total due at signing is $1000. 15K/year lease for $430 for 24 mo or $350 for 36 mo.

Think I can do better?

Thanks,

8MSRP 23,900

Package 1 $1625

No rear air bag

Total 27,215

The triptronic is standard in all Passat's? 6 speed $1,075

The car salesman told me that my payment would be first month payment, no money down and plate no more then $500-600 due at signing.

I was told because of my credit, I needed a co-signer to deal with VW Bank. This was for a 4 year lease 15,000 miles. Payment was in the high 400's. Is the total price a good price? What can I do to get the total price down? Can someone help me! Everyone else is paying less and the leases are for a shorter time period?

8MSRP 23,900

6 speed triptronic is this standard? $1,075

Wanted to know what I should do to get the total price down.

The salesman is quoting me in the high 300's because of credit. Also the lease is for 4 years at 15,000 miles. No money down just first month payment and plates. I didn't ask if tax was included I'm trying to get a quote right now at another dealer because I made some mistakes at this one. What can I do to lower my payment any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Traydog

38,514You never mentioned what sort of monthly payment you were quoted for this lease. If you let me know, I will tell you what I think of it.

38,514As you have already read, you definitely need to know what your car's selling price is. Regardless of what your credit is like, you can negotiate the selling price of the Passat that you are interested in just as if you were paying cash for it. It would be helpful if you were able to find out this car's full MSRP (including the destination charge) as well. This will enable you to see how much of a discount you are being given and we can use it to calculate a sample lease payment.

8Thank you,

Tracey

8I called 8 dealerships and the best sell price I got was 26,025 for the passat (no-value edition) pkg 1. What should my lease payment be around. For 3 years and 4 year 15,000 miles. Should I go with this one?

Another sell price I got for the Passat 2.0t package 1 + winter pkg was 26,195. This dealer is running a application.

Thanks,

Tracey

50Do you have October MF and residuals for a 36mo, either 36k or 45k lease? I'll use Edmunds lease calculator once I have quotes. In checking the prices paid forum, hard to believe people are getting near invoice on a German model just introduced what, in August...guess that is what happens when you put a $2k premium on a car that competes with the Accord. May the deals go to those informed consumers!

38,514You definitely can trade in your current vehicle when you lease your new one. It would be in your best interest though to have the dealer that you are working with cut you a check for your trade rather than applying the proceeds from it as a down payment on your lease. I always advise consumers against making any sort of down payment when leasing. I do so for two main reasons. The first is if your vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen during your lease, your insurance company pays off the bank that you were leasing it through and your down payment essentially disappears. The second main reason is that down payments on leased vehicles do nothing to reduce their lease-end purchase prices. So your lease-end purchase option price for your Passat would be exactly the same, regardless of whether you had put several thousand dollars down, or had made absolutely no down payment at all.

1Can I get better or is this about as good as it gets? I am not going to nitpick over $5 or $10 per month, but if I can get the down payment lower, or a significant lower monthly, I would like to hear about it.

Thanks!

Can't wait to drive my new passat!

418We just

boughtour 2.0T using the driver's option and with what we got for our trade, it made the payment less than $330/mo for 36 months. Our balloon payment at the end is about $1000 higher than the 57% residual on a lease, but we paid nothing out of pocket on the front end.When I plugged the numbers from our purchase including the trade difference into the lease formula on Edmunds.com the lease payment was $1 higher than our payment on the driver's option - and that was before taxes.

Also, just for kicks I figured what our payment would have been using your numbers from post #32 and paying no money down. The payment would have been 363.88 for 36 months before taxes with the residual being $15,512. This also does not account for security deposits and acquisition fees.

At the end of 36 months we have the option to purchase the car, refinance, trade, or turn it in. I know if we turn it in there will possibly be some fees we will have to pay, but we will most likely trade.

If you can buy a car in such fashion, is there really any advantage to leasing?

VW Credit has a little information on their website at link title.

What's your take on this?

Thanks,

Jeff

35However, the money factor he quoted was .001520 and the residual was 57% for a 36 month 15,000 mile per year lease. My question is would there be a different money factor under this program or is he just marking it up. Is the customer lease cash back really $750 or is it more. And is there a way to find out who the other dealers are that are participating in this program. He also said it was ending this Monday. Is there any way to know whether it will continue into next month. Thanks for any info you can provide.

27Thanks,

Dan

Edmunds Moderator27I'm looking for lease rates for 10,000 miles (or 8,000--is that an option?) per year for 36 months. I'm also considering 24 months, or 48 months. This info was not in msg. 32.

Also, do you (or anyone else) these rates change much month to month? Is it better to strke a deal now, when the sales force is attempting to move vehicles before end of month or to wait until Tuesday when the money factor might change for the better?

Thanks,

Dan

34I am going to be shopping for a 2006 Passat soon and want to know what sort of money factor and residual value I should be looking for. I ran a 2006 2.0T with Package #2 and cold weather package on edmunds and came up with a TMV of $28,263 and MSRP of $28,919. I am looking for a 36-month lease. Before I go in, can you tell me what money factor and residual I should be looking for. I have decent credit. Also, is that TMV what I should be looking for as a final negotiating price (realistically).

5Do you have the money factor and residuals for the 6cyl FWD Passat? 24 and 36 mths for 15k/yr. Thanks.

2727Can anyone confirm this, or add further info, such as more details on lease options or genuine November incentives?

I was quoted by phone the Money Factor on 1 Nov. of 0.00137 and am now being told that there is no negotiation, with respect to the new MF--they use whatever VW Credit provides.

It's a significant hike and adds $20/month to a 36 month lease ($720)!

3$350/mo. for 36 months, 12K miles per year with $2,100 down (includes all.) Selling price on the car is $27,197. Does this sound like a good deal??

Appreciate your thoughts.

Also if someone had the residuals and Money Factor for new 2005 Wagons and Sedans that would be most helpful.

27Also, can you provide a pointer to where you found them? Went to web site you reference and found no reference to them.
