2013 and earlier-Mercedes-Benz C-Class Lease Questions

    so it turns out, they factored in the lease acquisition fee, upcharged to $1095. Wouldn't budge on that, so I have asked them to throw in floor mats. Waiting to hear back.

    so I finally made the deal for the 2011 C300 Sport with a different dealer who did not markup the lease acq fee. The MSRP was $39,055. They said the USAA price(invoice+$500) is $37382, which is actually $1K over invoice. When I questioned it, they said that the invoice includes a "required" $500 advertising fee. Is this really true or am I being taken?

    Anyways, after the $1500 USAA cash back incentive to bring down the cap cost. The 27mo lease with 0.00116 MF and 68% residual came to about $417/month with taxes+fees upfront. Waiting for the car to be transported from port.
  • Is this really true or am I being taken?

    It probably is on the invoice, so no, you are not being taken.
  • Hey ateixeira. Mercedes' current advertised lease on the 2011 C300 Sedan Sport isn't quite $300 per month. It's actually $339 per month for 27 months with $2,245 down. One might be able to do better than that by negotiating a lower selling price, but still not all the way down to $300.

  • Does adding 4Matic change the residual or MF? Also does anybody know the residual & MF for a 7,500 mile/yr lease for both 27 months & 48 months?

    Hi all,

    Is the money factor for the C300 and the C350 the same? If not , what are the C350 programs looking like?
  • Hi tax_atty. The lease programs for the 4Matic is slightly different than it is for the RWD model.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 27 month lease of a 2011 C300 4Matic with 7,500 miles per year are .00114 and 72%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 48 month lease are .00114 and 56%.

  • Hi orizaba. The lease programs for the C300 and the C350 are similar, but not exactly the same.

    Mercedes-Benz Financial's November buy rate lease money factor and residual for a 36 month lease of a 2011 C350 with 15,000 miles per year are .00200 and 56%, respectively.

  • Hey guys, this is my first post.

    Looked at a 2011 C300 with prem 1, Nav + 4, wood trim, metallic paint, auto, MSRP 40,680. I wanted 0 down, 36months 15k miles.

    Dealer has offered 550/month incl tax, etc, 36months for 12k miles. Is this a good deal? I wanted 15k miles for under 500 incl tax.

    I didnt get into the specifics about residual value and money factor.
  • Hey guys, this is my first time posting on this site.

    Looking at a 2011 C300 4matic sport sedan in NJ. 27 month lease with 12,000 miles. I am looking to put no money down, and only put down the 1st month and typically signing allotment. The additional items I put into the vehicle are:

    - 4matic AWD
    - Premium 1 package
    - Multimedia package
    - Panoramic Roof
    - Rear Spoiler
    - Heated Seats
    - Iridium Silver Paint

    Total MSRP was approximately $45,820.

    I dealer originally offered it for $1700 at siging (including first month) and $589 a month. Went back and forth and checked out other dealerships and am now at $1500 at signing and $550 a month. Is this a good deal? I put alot of extras into the car, so I'm not sure if I can get much lower. What do you think>?
  • I am not sure what your tax rate is in NJ. However if you use the lease tool on this site in concert with Edmunds TMV for this car and the current money factor/residual, you might be able to get another $5-10 off per month.

    It is a very helpful tool if used in concert with all of the other great info in this forum.

    Good luck

  • Just got back from the MB dealer...

    Does anyone have this month's money factor?

    Thank you.

  • Hi everyone,
    This is not intended to be advertising or spam, as I'm not making any profit from doing this.
    There is a, very reliable, leasing broker in my area in NYC that has a special on the C300 (2011 MY). 27 months pre-paid lease, $250+tax per month + bank and DMV. 7,500 miles a year.
    Message me if interested.
  • All, here is the deal I closed last friday: 2011c300, 4matic, P1, Multi, Leather, heated seats, Capri, pp maint, 10K miles, 27 months, 4,136 due at signing (cap cost red 2,096, acq fee 895, lic fee 350, prep fee 395, tire mgmt fee (???) 7.50, 1st payment 392). Monthly payment is 392.65. I did my homework and shopped 4 dealers. No one could beat it. Good luck and Merry Christmas.
  • I leased a mercedes c300 2011 (msrp of$ 39500) for 27 months and 12000 miles per year. My monthly payment is$ 350 per month. Maintenance oil changes and all is included in price. How good of a deal did I get? $3300 was due at signing but I did not have to pay it bc I traded in my car.
  • I am turning in my C 300 Sport for a C 300 Luxury edition. As I had endless problems w/ the tires on the Sport and did not have the tire insurance, I was wondering if anyone who has the Luxury has had problems w/ the tires? Apparently the tire insurance is approx $37/month...$1,000 over 27 months. I don't want to spend the extra money on the lease if there tends not to be a problem w/ the tires on the Luxury model. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
