Sounds like a really nice deal! Is the $345.22 per month including TTL? Could you tell me what your MSRP on the vehicle is and your final cap cost. I would love to match that deal here in Cincinnati.
I have a Honda Oddysey with 4 lease payments left trying to decide if I should jump ship to a T&C. Thanks in advance.

#358 of 407 Take the lease deal or not? T&C 2011 (August)
Aug 11, 2011 (6:23 am)
All of the information below has been numbers supplied by the dealer via e-mail.
2011 Town and Country Touring –L (only optional equipment Media center/Garmin navigation)
Rebates: $2,000 Consumer Cash
$2,000 Lease Cash
Cap Cost: $20,262
Lease Rate: 2.25%
Residual: $15,497 (46%). (There is an additional $2,500 to buy so total to buy at end of lease $17,997)
Up Front Fees: Registration/Documentation - $502
Leasing Company: ALLY
With $0 down, which means the $502 + your first payment (always due at signing), you come in at $397 per month.
With $2500 down plus the $502 and first payment, you come in at $325.
Is it worth it or hold out? any negotiation anywhere? Seems like according to them no more wiggle room?

If you are not planning to buy I would get them to pump up the residual more. I got mine to 49%. I don't think they are going that high any more but it is worth a shot.

This doesn't sound like a bad deal. I lease in March and got a total of $3750 in rebates and incentives. Did not know how much they discounted the MSRP. My sticker price was a little over $36,000. My payment for 36 months including tax and 12,000 miles per year is $413.
I got the DVD entertainment system, which I did not need due to difficulty finding the right color and equipment. I did not get the GPS, which I would rather have had than the DVD system. Mine includes the safety package, which includes several very useful things. The side warning system is great and the backup warning system is much better than on my 2008.
Sounds like you are doing well in rebates and other incentives. Your residual sounds better than mine.
This is my fourth T&C and the best yet. Although it looks much like the 2008 or even the 2010, the 2011 is much improved. I love the new engine with great horse power and better mileage. Handling is also much better. The information system is far better than any other I have seen. It is very easy to read and give you much more information. It even has a digital speedometer. This system is much better than my wife's Lexus. I even got Michelin tires on my van and she did not on the Lexus. They do use other brand tires, so that is "the luck of the draw".
I get the T&C because of the Stow and Go. No other van has this feature.
The interior on the 2011 is also much improved. All in all it is a great van. Hope you like it.

The residual set by Ally bank. If you get 10 k miles per year residual will goes up by 2 % means payment is lower.

Thanks for all of the advice. I tried to see if they would bump the residual from 46% to 49% no go. Dealer said it was set and controlled by Ally. All in all I got a geat deal and my family is real happy!
#363 of 407 Question re $2,000 Bonus cash - SWLBD
Aug 21, 2011 (7:03 pm)
If I take advantage of the extra $2,000 bonus cash for a lease (in addition to the $2,000 rebate), is there a pre-pay penalty if I pay it off after one month?

I have no knowledge of what would happen in case you paid off early. I am sure that you can find out this information from your dealer or the company that is doing the lease. You also might want to "Google" this question and see if there is a link that might give you the answer.
The $2,000 cash and $2,000 rebate sounds good.
