Dodge Credit doesn't lease vehicles anymore. Their value didn't hold up enough for them to return a profit on the off leased vehicles.

The fact that "Dodge Credit" doesn't lease Caravans has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Caravans don't hold their value (any car can be lease at a profit regardless of its expected resale value), and more because there is no such an entity as "Dodge Credit".

Hi phred84044. While it is true that Chryselr Financial is not Chrysler's captive finance company any longer, one can indeed still lease a Dodge Caravan if they want to. One of the banks that Chrysler has an affiliation with is Ally (the former GMAC).
Ally's current base lease rate and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan Mainstreet with 12,000 miles per year are 2.0% and 49%, respectively.
The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an '11 Grand Caravan Crew are 0.5% and 48%.
There's also cash incentives on leases of this van, but they vary by region. I would be happy to try to give you an idea of what they're like in your area if you let me know what state you're in.

With all due respect, you need to get everything in writing. That is, you needed to get in writing that the previous lease payments were waived. Never trust a car salesperson's "word."

If you bought a Chrysler "Man Van" like this one, http://edmu.in/Nyzoly, a reporter would love to chat with you about it. Please email PRedmunds.com no later than Wednesday, October 10, 2012 and include your daytime contact information.
