  • picked up a 2014 ML 350 ... 30 Month 12k per year:

    MF: .00132
    Residual: 62%
  • Would be curious about this as well. Anyone with experience on special ordering a new ML350 and what kind of deal you can get with the dealers? True Car says discount is averaging about 5-6% off MSRP.

    guys, any comments on below deal?
    i just picked up the vehicle yesterday.

    36 mt / 10,000 miles per year
    MSRP $62,495.
    2014 ML350 4MATIC - BLACK/BLACK

    I ended up paying $2500 at signing and $740/mt including NJ tax.
    I insisted on $714/mt incld tax plus $2000 down but they did not accept it at all.
  • Hey Guys -

    This is my 4th benz since reading this forum and it saves me $ every time - thanks to car_man and everyone else!

    So my wife's 2012 GL us up - i nailed it for $699 zero down 24 months ago during winter event. Killer deal as they were changing body style. 72% residual, they discounted it 8% off msrp and gave back $4k. crazy...and sad since it cant be replicated.

    so we are shopping the ML and this is the best iv'e done so far:

    ML350WF / Silver / P1 / Pano / Logic7 / Running Boards / Pre wiring + dealer DVD equipment ($1950 accessory residualized) + dealer maint, destination and tax all wrapped in.

    $58,635 MSRP discounted to $51,450.
    + $1,950 DVD
    + $795 Bank fee
    + $1,777 taxes
    + $450 in DMV and doc fees

    $1,096 drive off (first month + dmv)
    $805/month (which i'm sure they can push to $799 or lower)

    This assumes:
    24 mo / 12k
    62% residual
    0132 MF (with autopay)

    Thoughts?

    I'm over mileage on the GL by 4k - any thoughts on mitigating that damage?

    Thanks,

    Seth

    Its amazing how one cannot get a GL at a good price/lease at this time especially since we are going into 2nd year of model. As a long term MB customer, the dealer may be able to help you out with the mileage issue. I am curious what the lease buyout number is. The dealer may be willing to buy it and add it to used car lot. About 2 years of warranty and add CPO and this may be an option. If not this dealership, another one may be looking for your GL.
  • Many thanks to all those who have posted on this thread, this is the second car I have purchased from using it and it is a great source of information. Here is what I was able to get:

    2014 ML350
    MSRP: $63,585 discounted to $56,100
    Lighting Package, P01, Pano Sunroof, Running Boards, Illuminated Running Boards, H/K Logic7, Keyless Go, Ambient Lighting, Trailer Hitch, Pre-wire, Parktronic, Lane Assist and backup camera.

    30mos/10K
    63% residual value
    .00161
    .00082 (one pay)

    or 36mos/10K
    56% residual value
    .00157
    .00077 (one pay)

    I think I got a good deal, in any event I hope this helps those out there looking to purchase during the winter event!

  • Does anyone have December residual and mf for 2014 ML350 and bluetec? 36 months, 12k.

    I'm concerned dealers in Oregon are seriously inflating their money factors. Anyone have any west coast recommendations?

    Thanks
  • We were just told by a Portland dealer the MF was .00275 for 36 mo 12k for a '14 BlueTEC.

    Sound high? 62% Res.
  • Hi,

    If possible please provide Dec rates and residuals on '14 ML350 4matic for 12k,15k for best available term.

    Help is greatly appreciated
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 131,011
    2014 ML350 Gas AWD 36mo, 12K/yr lease
    .00132 MF and 55% residual

    Bluetec
    Standard money factor and 62% residual

    I usually see .00195-.00225 for the standard money factor... but, dealers can jack it way up, if they wish..

  • Hey there - congrats on the great deal. I'm in the market to purchase the same type of vehicle you got, was wondering how you were able to talk them down to this price?

    Any leads would be greatly appreciated...I'm in Northern Cali.

    Thanks! I've put in an order for one, so it should arrive at my dealer in 90-120 days. I know that I will have to use the program for RV & MF that's available at that time and likely MSDs.

    Cheers!

    kyfdx- What is the Dec's RV for 2014 ML350 gas and BlueTEC? 30mo/10K and 30mo/12K. Also, do you know what's the "sweet spot" term?

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 131,011

    2014 ML350 Gas 2WD 30mo, 12K/yr lease

    .00134 MF and 62% residual

    Bluetec: Standard money factor and 66% residual

    The Bluetec sweet spot is probably 36 months at 62% residual, while the gas model is not really any better at 55% residual for 36 months..

    Add 1% to all residuals for 10K/yr leases

  • Hi Carman, can you please help me with the residual value and MF on 2014 ML for Jan? Looking for 10K / yr lease. Thank you.

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 131,011

    New numbers come out on Tuesday, January 14th. It will be a few days before we get them.

  • carman, if these numbers don't come out until half way through the month do they go into February? My order will be done the first week of February and delivered a week or 2 later and am trying to get an idea of what to expect for MF and RV on 10k/year. MBUSA seems to push specific lease terms so I am open to whichever turns out to be the best deal. Thanks for the info.

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 131,011

    Unfortunately, we didn't get the new numbers, so I can't tell you when they expire. (or, even what they are)..

  • are these Jan or Feb numbers? do you have 10k/yr 4matic sweetspot?

  • dogeyedogeye Posts: 9

    I've been requesting lease quotes on ML550. Dealers said the rate on 2013 model is very bad, one of the quote even gave less than 50% residual on 12k, 36 months lease. Anyone knows why? I thought they should be trying to clear out 2013 model with better deals, but it's seems not the case? Is 0.00225 for current MF seems right?

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 131,011

    January.. 36 month looks to be the best program.

    The top of the line of each model generally suffers the most depreciaton and also has buyers that are less price sensitive... Lease numbers are driven by marketing...

    Plus, it's very late in the 2014 model year.. A 2013 model that is leased now will be 4 model years old at the end of the lease.... the residuals reflect that.

    Hi kyfdx/all

    2014 ml350/4 p1 and paint,
    Msrp 56k
    Neg 51.5

    Came back with 800, 5k down, for 15k, 30 month lease. I'd rather not comment on how bad that deal is.

    Came back with negotiated price of 50k, 625 a month, 5k down. I wanted to get acquisition to 795 and mf rate of .00132 after that bogus first quote. Also I confirmed residual of 60 percent.

    However, my numbers are still not adding up. I'm calculating a fair bit lower. Is the MF still not where I want it to be?

    Also, I know I qualify for 2k fleet but do not want to mention this until the last moment (dont want to mix their offer and my qualified program together) I can stack the fleet discount on top to get it to 48k, correct? I also want to target the selling price to 49.5, which would give me a selling of 47.5

    I don't have my calculator in front of me, but I should be in ballpark of 585 with 2k due at signing with taxes rolled into the monthly (assuming selling of 48k with fleet)

    Want to stay with this dealer. Aside from the HIGH initial offer, I like them.

    Is this offer too aggressive?
    Thanks!

  • Oops I mean 2700ish at signing

  • Can you please provide me the latest MF and residual for a 2014 ML550?

    Thanks,

  • I read that the BlueTec has the highest Residual value.... However, I am looking to order the car because all the ones that I have seen are too basic in my area. Does anyone have an experience on negotiating a car that you are ordering?? They said that the price is Sticker because I am ordering it..... I don't believe that. Any insight would be great....

    Hi Saxobeat,
    I ordered a Bluetec from my dealer, and I anticipate delivery in March/April. Since I will lease, I know that I will have to use the RV and MF available at the time of delivery, but I suspect that the MF will be standard, so I will likely buy it down via MSDs. I didn't discuss pricing with my dealer for 2 reasons.
    1. It may depend on the leverage and/or dealer incentives he has available at the time, and
    2. I generally have a good rapport with my dealer having leased multiple MB's from him in the past, most recently an E350 in Sept.

    My expectations are tempered. I don't expect to get an exceptional deal, but I know that my dealer is transparent, so I anticipate a reasonable deal, that's better than most, for the exact ML that I wanted.

    Cheers!

    .00132 MF and 56% residual for 36 months...

    They aren't offering any specials on other length terms, this month, on the ML.

    The advertised special on that lease for a unit with an MSRP of $55,135, is $619/mo, with $3900 down and $5300 due at signing, or ZERO down and $1525 due at signing (1st payment and acq.fee) for $732/mo.

    Of course, those numbers don't account for tax, title, doc fees, etc.. The advertised leases assume a discount of $1900 from MSRP, so if you can do better than that, it should lower the payment...

  • Hi kyfdx,

    I was quoted a .00132 MF. Can I get it to .00122 with autopay or does the .00132 include autopay? Thanks
