  • Thanks Carman. Does the residual or money factor change for the AWD or R-design model?
  • You're welcome, autoboy19. The money factor is the same for the AWD and R-Design models, but the residual value is 2% higher.

    Just got back from dealership in southeastern CT and was offered the following deal and want to get some feedback if is a decent deal:

    2011 XC90 3.2 AWD, multimedia, climate package, metallic paint, basically everything except Blis and DVDs. He even said he would throw in the cross rails for the roof rack at no additional cost.

    total cost $43,200, he says $400 over invoice
    48 mo lease with 15k miles

    $2100 out of pocket and $664/month, or roll in the some of the upfronts and out of pocket $990 with monthly payment of $690.

    If I buy it and finance at 2.9% over 72 months, zero down, monthly payment of $700.

    I would prefer to buy but because my wife is self employed my accountant suggests leasing is better because we need the deductions of the lease payments vs the depreciation of owning.

    Does the lease sound like a fair deal? Thanks in advance for any feedback.
  • Hi ctdan. If you are indeed getting this car for $400 over dealer invoice, and you can confirm that you are by looking that number up over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com, then you are getting an excellent deal.

    I certainly understand the tax advantages of leasing, but man if I could finance a vehicle for the same price that I could lease it for I would have a tough time convincing myself to go with the lease. Perhaps you should consider shopping around to find an SUV that has a better lease program available on it right now.

    Hey Car_Man - thanks for the feeback. I had validated the numbers on the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com and it didn't quite add up so I went back to the dealer to reconcile the invoice price and he is actually $500 over inovice (which was my mistake, not his) plus I also needed to factor in a $250 Dealer Supplemental Advertising on the car....whatever that is. The dealer very transparent about the whole process though, which was appreciated. To sweeten the deal he is also including the cross rails for the roof rack at no additional charge.

    I agree with your perspective on the leasing vs financing, and I am leaning toward just buying it to take adavantage of the 2.9% and forego the tax deductons since the lease terms are not very attractive.

    I'll update this post once I finalize a deal.
  • I understand all new Volvo leases are through US Bank. Volvo Car Finance had/has a WearCare waiver that covers up to $1000 excess wear & use. Does US Bank have anything similar? I've read online about folks complaining about US Bank lease returns. I've also read an article saying US Bank ranking highest in auto lease financing customer survey from 2007.

    Can anyone give state their experience with US Bank lease returns—pro or con, for Volvo or other makes? Thank you.
  • Hey Car Man,

    I am looking for some advice on the XC90. . They seem to be very hard to get in CA.

    Do you have the October numbers from US Bank Financing for MF and Residual? I would be interested in 12K and 15K per year.

    What do you suggest is a fair price? $500 over invoice, $750? Given that they are hard to come by, I am interested in your thoughts.

    Finally -- sorry for so many questions -- if I factory ordered, would you change your response? The reason I ask is that there are some options that I want that are not available in the known inventory/incoming shipment, so I am thinking about factory order.

    Thanks!
  • I just did a quick search and could not find a recent post. Does anyone know the residual and money factor for

    36 mos
    12k miles
    2011 xc90

    Thanks
  • Oops. Should have said "in Texas"

    Thanks!
  • It depends on when you purchase the car. Residual on a 36 is 53% and the lease factor buy rate at US bank is .00198 of course depending on credit and assuming your getting AWD.
  • Was interested in 2011 XC90 lease in NYC.
    Volvo posted special is $499 for XC90 3.2 FWD with MSRP of $39,050 with $3449 due at signing.
    When I plug in 53% residual; .00198 money factor; and $2,950 cap cost reduction (assuming 1st month of $499 is included in the $3449) . . . I am getting a lease payment of $528.54 including tax.

    Would you agree with this? What are lease experience in NYC?
    Does the 53% and .00198 apply in NYC?
    What incentives are provided in NYC?
    Thanks
  • You're welcome ctdan. It definitely sounds as though this dealer is being very straightforward with you. I look forward to hearing how everything turns out.

  • Greetings 1st_time_lease. US Bank's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 XC90 R Design AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00198 and 51%, respectively. If you were to lease this truck with only 12,000 miles per year its residual value would be 2% higher.

    I would start looking to get this vehicle for $500 to $750 over invoice and see what happens. If they are difficult to get in your area then this may not be possible, but it's a good starting place.

    Dealers are usually more willing to discount vehicles that they physically have on their lots then factory orders. You might end up having to pay a little more for an ordered vehicle.

    Ok so after going back and forth with leasing vs buying we decided to buy, here was my final deal:

    2011 Volvo XC90 3.2 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
    - Magic Blue w/Sandstone interior
    - Electronically Controlled All-Wheel Drive System w/Instant Traction
    - Climate Package
    - Multimedia Package
    - 4XX Metallic Paint
    - Destination Charge

    Total with Options (per Edmunds new Vehicle Pricing):
    MSRP $45,100, Dealer Invoice: $42,445

    Add $250 for dealer supplemental advertising so total price to me was $43,200
    ($42,695 + $500 over invoice)

    Had dealer install cross rails for roof rack and homelink at no additional cost. Took advantage of the 2.9% financing and put down $500, which was a refundable deposit i had given the dealer to locate the exact car I wanted (color, options, etc.) and then applied toward the purchase price. BTW they ended up not being able to find it locally so it just came in from the port 2 weeks ago.

    Final Numbers:

    Vehicle Price...........$43,500
    Deposit......................($500)
    Gov’t fees................... $173
    Doc Fee..................... $275
    Taxes........................$2625.50
    Total Amt Financed...$46074.50

    72 months at 2.9% total monthly payment $698.15

    Dealer & salesperson were great. Low pressure, responded promptly on phone & email and most importantly very transparent on price & fees. Would highly recommend if anyone looking for a Volvo dealer in northeast.

    Can't wait to dump my 2008 Mercedes R350!!!
  • fluid15fluid15 Posts: 60
    I'm curious why you want to dump the R350? My wife really likes that vehicle and previously had an XC90 3.2.
  • ctdanctdan Posts: 38
    The R class was great when it worked. Hands down the most comfortable car for long family trips, but I've had more trouble with that car than any vehicle I have ever owned. From the annoying fuse/sensor malfunctions to major issues; i.e. the gear paddle on the steering column had to be replaced, there was a leaky moonroof that channeled the water underneath the seats to the "hidden" battery compartment shorting it out. That was an especially fun one since the water was not visible inside the car so it took several trips to the dealer on the flatbed to figure that one out. It was in the svc dept for 1-2 weeks on 3 separate occasions within the 2+ years I've had it. Not to mention the dozen or so other times for minor inconveniences. Thank goodness it was all covered under warranty.

    After all that I was still open to going into another Mercedes since they were very responsive to my issues and stood behind their product. I was looking at either another R Class or upgrading to GL, but Mercedes was not really willing to deal at all for an existing client, or do anything to get me out of that lemon and into another one. That was quite disappointing so at the end of the day I decided to go with the XC90.

    How did your wife rate the 2 against each other?
  • So who is this low pressure responsive dealer?

    Hi Car_man,

    I live in OKC area and would like to know the current money factor and residual for xc90 3.2l AWD with climate and multimedia packages. I'm looking for a 3 year 10,000 mile lease. Are there any options with zero down payment? I'm considering to lease either a xc90 or mdx with tech package.

    Also, does xc90's climate package include Heated windshield washer nozzles? I found this option on xc60 and 70 but not on xc90. Not too sure about the accuracy of the information presented in the brochures....(xc60's brochure doesn't list hill descent control option and the brochure for xc90 has several typos...looks like a lousy job in creating the brochures)...

    Thanks

    Can you let me know if this looks like correct info. for FL.

    I saw 53% residual, but dealer says 42%. Here are all the specs:

    Volvo XC90 2011 3.2L I-6 cyl
    MSRP 39,600.00 / Selling price 37368.32
    Residual Value US Bank 42% 12k miles p/y
    Money Factor .001940, 48 Month lease
    Total cash from you $3000,.00 + loyalty $1000=$4,000.00
    Inception fees $ 1,505.43

    This a deal or no?
  • Here's the info that you're looking for, Gogs.

    In the land of Kevin Durant (awesome player) Volvo's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 XC90 3.2L AWD with 10,000 miles per year are .00173 and 53%, respectively.

    I'm not sure about the heated washer nozzles, but one would suspect that they would be included in the "climate" package.

  • Hi boricuba. The 42% residual value that you were quoted is correct for a 48 month lease of this truck.

  • Hi Car_man.

    Do you know the current money factor and residual for xc90 3.2 FWD R-Design,36 month and 15000 miles per year,In Texas.

    Also Can you lease an oversea delivery is there any different than the regulary lease to think of.

    Thank you Car_man.
  • I am considering an xc90 lease for 36 months, 12,000 mi/yr starting in April. Looking at an AWD model, I6 model expecting an msrp of 42,500. Do you have an estimated residual value and money factor? Also, any known incentives on leases? I am a current Volvo owner so wondering if there is a loyalty incentive? I will purchase in either Pennsylvania or New jersey.

    My lease ends this month and the buyout on it is $17,000. The car has 80,000 miles. It is 3.2 liter. It has the premium sound, seventh seat, climate package, steering tilt, moonroof, leather, heated seats. The only items it doesn't have are entertainment system and navigation. The dealership is only offering me $12,000 for it and KBB is saying in Fair shape I should get $16,400. Besides the miles it is in good condition and KBB said that trade in value should be $18,600. Who is way off here, the dealership or KBB? If this isn't the correct place to post can someone direct me to a different forum? thanks!
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 25,715
    You didn't say what year it is, but I can tell you that KBB is ridiculous. They are almost always over, and this sounds like WAY over. No way it is worth that with those miles.

    If you tell me the year, I can give you a more accurate value.

    '18 BMW 330xi; '67 Coronet R/T; '14 Town&Country Limited; '18 BMW X2. 47-car history and counting!

    It is a 2007. I appreciate the help!

    I figured the dealership was low, but didn't think it would be THAT low. My magic book tells me the bottom offer should be $15,700.

    You say it has never had any accidents and is in good shape overall, yes? I'm also assuming it is an AWD model, correct?

    I can say I had trouble unloading our XC90, too. Most dealers were way under on it. I wound up driving it to a Volvo dealer 80 miles away who expressed interest and sold it to them outright for a much fairer number.

  • Greetings swede73. According to the latest information that I have seen, Volvo's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 XC90 3.2 FWD R-Design with 15,000 miles per year are .00173 and 49%, respectively.

    You should be able to lease a vehicle that you want to take European Delivery on, but its lease program might vary some.
