    FYI the 2015 MDXs are on some lots (maybe only one in LA) as much as I had hoped they would be motivated to start unloading 2014s their offer wasn't impressive.
    base SP $40,400 = $545 pre-tax w $1500 drive off - 12k 36 mos

    I told them no thanks and of course they started calling and emailing. Sale manager said that 2015s will be leased at or close to MSRP until there is support from acura in a few months.

    I've been negotiating on a 2014 MDX FWD Tech but the monthly payment has been a bit high. I was hoping that the money factor would drop this July 7th but dealer said not to hold my breath as they have very few MDXs on the lot. SO he came back with a lease figure on a 2015 MDX FWD Tech that was a little better than what they were offering on the '14. He told me that even though the money factor on the '15 was a bit higher (the workup showed the MF at .00170) BUT he said that the residual was 4% higher (61%), so the higher residual resulted in a slightly lower payment on a '15. By the way, this was on a 15k lease.

    I've searched the Edmunds forums and can't find a "2015 Acura MDX Lease Questions", so can the moderator provide the current Money factor and residual for an MDX Tech and MDX Tech+Entertainment at 15k miles? I understand that the MF and residual are the same for the AWD and FWD, correct?

    Thanks!

    2014 numbers haven't changed, yet... Maybe, on July 8th..

    2015 numbers are indeed .00170 MF and 61% for Tech and 60% for Tech/Ent. for 36mo, 15K/yr. And, they are the same for both FWD and AWD

    Do you know if there's MF reduction for autopay with Acura? Because I am current Mercedes Benz owner too, I know MF reduction is available for autopay and MSDs.

    Base MF is .00164 - with the rest of your numbers, I get a pre-tax payment of $575.37.

    How is tax applied to a lease in SD?

    Only you can decide if the deal is good enough to sign for. I don't make decisions with other people's money :smile:

    Leases on the 2015 MDX are not very good at this time. The .00164 MF is about 3.9 percent. That could result in additional monthly payments approaching $100 over a finance rate of .9 percent which Honda/Acura often uses to subvent their leases. Unless a lease is really necessary, probably better to wait a bit and see if Acura begins to subventions the MDX leases.

    Leases are usually only a good bet when subvented by the OEM. This is one of the keys to a good lease.

    I would agree - lease numbers on brand new models (or a new model year) are not nearly as good as on the outgoing model or model year.

    BMW seems to be the exception - the base MF for almost every model is .00130 for both 2014 and 2015.

    I would like to lease a 2015 Acura MDX SH-AWD w/ TECH package. MSRP is $49,735. What's the best deal I can get on this? Assume 36 months, 12k and 15k miles numbers ($0 down). Please be sure to share the sell price, money factor and residual value so I can double check the data the dealer gives me.

    Can I get this for something like $540/month + tax? 0 down?

    .00124 or .00154 MF, depending on region. 62%/60% residual for 12K/15K per year.

    I have been looking for a new MDX to replace my current MDX. However, as Acura is not currently subventing leases on the 2015 MDX, this may not be the best time to lease an MDX. Leases are always best when they are supported (subvented) by the OEM with attractive money factors (MF).

    Acura's current 2015 MDX MFs do not seem very appealing. A MF of .00154 is over 3.5 percent. This MF results in payments around $90 or more a month over a MF reflective of Honda/Acura's .9 percent financing. Over a 36 month least period, that results in well over $3,000 in additional payments.

    For such an amount, unless an exigency exits, it probably makes financial sense for many folks to postpone a lease of an MDX until the MF become more reasonable.

    Was just offered: 2015 MDX AWD with Tech Package.

    Lease: 36 months, 15K
    Money Factor: .00124
    MSRP: $49,735
    Sell Price: $46,075
    Residual: 60%

    Payment with tax: $602. Nothing down.

    I'm thinking this is bare bones price what I have gotten it down to.... I'm surprised that they are using .00124 money factor on 15k?? or is this a mistake by the sales guy?

    60% RV for 36/15 with a MF of .00124.

    $545.08 pre-tax with your numbers; $602 seems a bit high.

    I am posting this on the 2014 and 2015 forum...sorry if that isn't the best way to get the information on my question.

    I got hosed on a BMW lease, which in turn made me really educate myself on lease's.

    That being said, I spoke with a Manager at an Acura Dealership and he stated that Acura doesn't do MSD's to lower the Money Factor, but they do a "One-Pay Lease" that really lowers the MF. Is anyone familiar with the One-Pay Lease, what the MF is, the pros and cons, does it change the residual on the vehicle?

    Thanks.

    Without knowing the MSRP and selling price, it's hard to fully evaluate your offer.

    .00124 MF and 63% for 36/10.

    With your MSRP and selling price, I get a pre-tax payment of $533.65/mo. 7-7.5% tax takes us to the $572/mo you were quoted.

    Seems a solid deal.
