    one week ago i turned in my es350 2011 with nav only about half way through my lease. 17 months, but only 7800 miles on it. they were happy to get mine for their used car lot. i worked them on a 2012 es350 with nav until i ended up only giving them $600 and a leave payment of $501 a month. this was at keyes lexus in van nuys, calif. i dont think i could have done much better.

    OK, I read these columns every car purchase and I got a deal that seems good but I don't have all the details ( money factor, etc... to post)

    2012 ES 350 with navigation
    list: 42,202
    $2295 down
    15k, 36 months
    $450 per month
    Trading in 2009 Nissan Maxima (1 payment remaining at $491, buyout 21,783) Dealer in trading in my Maxima so I don't have to turn in & pay disposition fee to Nissan. $2291 includes, 1st payment of $450, fees, DMV's plus some cash to cover the negative equity of about $700).

  • That is one heck of a large discount you negotiated, manu99. so the selling price aspect of this deal certainly looks good. Just make sure that the dealer uses Lexus Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor of .00060 (for Tier 1+ customers) to calculate your payment and you're in business.

    Hi Car_Man,

    What is the July residual for the ES 350? Does it vary by region?

    Looking to lease this month on a 36mo/12k.

    Many thanks!
  • Hi thepostman. According to the latest information that I have seen, Lexus Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 ES 350 with 12,000 miles per year are .00060 and 56%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka Tier 1+ credit tier. I don't believe that this model's program currently varies by region.

  • I was going to buy one in july but I missed out on one...I will wait to see what the August incentives are.
  • manu99manu99 Posts: 23
    Better hurry up, they are coming out with the new model
    in couple of weeks.
  • pvleckpvleck Posts: 4
    Anyone know anything about pricing/leasing for the new 2013 ES?
  • Hi carman,

    Any August lease numbers yet for 2012 ES 350?

  • sjeedsjeed Posts: 86
    Car_Man: Can you please post the current Lease numbers for the 2013 ES300H & ES350 (money factor, residuals for 10K, 12K & 15K, and Acquisition Fee). Thank you!
  • Hi pvleck. Edmunds has the pricing data for the 2013 ES 350. Here's a link:

    I haven't seen any advertised lease payments on the '13 model yet, but I can tell you that its buy rate lease money factor is currently .00180 for Tier 1+ customers.

  • Certainly postman. Lexus Financial Services' August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 ES 350 with 15,000 miles per year are .00060 and 54%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Tier 1+" credit tier.

  • Hi sjeed. I haven't seen all of the numbers for the new 2013 models yet. I'll ask around and see what I can find out for you.

  • Thanks car man

    One more question....what would the residual be @ 10k and 12k per year?

  • pvleckpvleck Posts: 4
    The 2013 buy rate lease money factor of .00180 sounds like THREE TIMES the 2012 buy rate lease money factor of .00060. Is that correct?
  • You're very welcome thepostman. The residual value for a lease with 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher than its residual value for a lease with 15,000 miles per year. The residual value for a 10k lease would be 3% higher than the 15k.

    Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
  • Yes that is indeed correct, pvleck. Lexus is focusing on clearing out the remaining 2012 models before it worries about the 2013s.

    Hi Car_man: Thanks for the money factor; doesn't surprise me since this is about what it was before the clearing out of prior year models, except the residuals were slightly higher, too. Any update on what the residuals are for the 2013 ES300h? Thank you again!

    I am looking at a loaded Lexus (MSRP $43,702, but have not started negotiating yet!). I asked dealer for lease rate on MSRP as a reference. He came back with $6000 down for my trade in, applied to taxes, tags, dealer fees and lien. He is offering a 36 month lease with 12,000 miles/year of $587/mo. I don't know what the residual is.
    Is this a good deal? How aggressive can I negotiate off the MSRP?
    Thanks to all from a newbie at leasing!
  • Negotiated '13 ES ($43702 MSRP) for $42,000 at NJ dealer. Taking delivery tomorrow. White/black. Very excited.
  • rapman1rapman1 Posts: 3
    Can you tell me where in NJ? I would drive an hour for $1762!!
