#888 of 907 12 months till the end of my lease
Sep 29, 2007 (8:10 am)
My "05" Pacifica is due to come off lease in November of next year. I've recently changed jobs and would like to get out early of my lease. Do you have any info on the Chrysler pull ahead program? My local dealership wasn't the most helpful in obtaining the necessary info. Any info that you have will be appreciated.

What are the current money factor and residual values for an 07 Pacifica Touring FWD?

Hi Prorj316. I am sorry to say that Chrysler's pull ahead program only waives up to three lease payments for current Chrysler Financial lessees who get a new Chrysler, Dodge, or Jeep vehicle. As a result, it will likely be fairly expensive for you to get out of your current Pacifica lease a year before its scheduled end.

#891 of 907 "Turn In Fee"
Dec 13, 2007 (9:48 am)
I recently received a letter from Chrysler Financial outlining the procedures to return my 2005 Pacifica. My 39-month lease ends in February. Among other topics, the letter says something like, "To avoid a 'Turn-In Fee', you may lease another Chrysler vehicle ... ". What the hell is a "Turn-In Fee"?! Never heard of it before. My previous two leases were with Ford and Honda and there was no Turn-In Fee. Problem for me is there is nothing in the Chrysler line-up that interests me. I'm looking for either a crossover or Japanese sedan.
Anybody have any idea how much this is (I can't find my copy of the lease!)?

turn in fee is usually the disposition fee, which is $425 for Chrysler. It is just the cost of returning the car without buying it. Many leases have this charge...whether it is called turn in or disposition. For Mercedes, the charge is $595

Thanks for the reply rmbalisa .. appreciate that. As I said, there was no Turn-in Fee on my first two leases (1 Ford and 1 Honda), so this news surprised me. I'm not happy and have instructed my dealer - who I have already purchased or leased 5 vehicles from in the past - that if they attempt to charge me this fee I will never buy from them (or Chrysler) again. My dealer informed me this fee is normally waived if you buy your next vehicle from them. Not likely since there's nothing in their line-up I like at this time with the possible exception of the 2009 Dodge Journey.

#895 of 907 Trying to "buy out" my lease - HELP!
Feb 21, 2008 (11:15 pm)
I had leased a 2007 Pacifica back in Dec 06, I'm 15 months into the lease and was able to come up with the $$$ to pay off my lease and buy the vehicle. I contacted Chrysler Financial and they stated that I had to contact the dealer where I got the car from. I did and they sayd that I had to go to Chrysler Financial to do this. After the run around and spending 3 hors on the phone between talking to India and US reps. I got a word that Chrysler Financial can't do it since they are an indirect lender, and based on Florida law they can't sell me the vehicle (but if I'm about 3 months from maturity they can, I'm confused). So they referred me back to the dealer. They (the dealer) wanted to charge me a bunch of fees, since they said ".. we do not own the car, Chrysler does, therefore we will have to buy it from Chrysler in order to sell it to you ..." and here comes the fees, inspection fees (when I already have the veichle), tags fees (when I'm already using my own tag) and taxes (when the taxes are already in the payoff quote), when it is clearly in the contract that these fees will be waived if I purchase the vehicle.. I need help on getting this resolved. Has anyone out there had the same situation in the past?, and if so how you resolved it?.
