#18 of 110 Lincoln Navigator 2006 lease question
Jan 09, 2006 (2:50 pm)
Hi, Carr man! Please help. My issue is whether Lincoln tends to change their monthly programs drastically. My current lease that is expriing ends Feb 26th. I have a great deal now through lincoln (confirmed thanks to your forums) and they only honor it until Jan 31. they said programs change each month and they cant enter into one for Feb until February. So, given that i spend 650/month on my current lease and would, in essence, lose a month if i return that car early, do i just take my deal with lincoln now, or knowing the history, wait until Feb and enter into the feb programs. Here are my details:
2006 4x4 ultimate package
cashmere tri coat paint package
They offered me a selling price of 54,300 after negotiating. after adding on a 595 bank fee and reducing for 4500 in dealer incentives, i get a $50,395 price.
they quoted a 39 month lease using the "Red carpet lease" at a factor of 1.75% and residual of 42 + 2 (since i am taking 12,000 miles per year).. total monthly payment before taxes (first payment down only) of 627.67. so, only 627.67 plus tax (which they'll put into the lease as part of rebate). so, do i roll the dice and wait until feb (are my chances good there will be similar rebates, etc in feb) or just eat my one month of lease. The good news is that i'll go over by 800 miles on my other lease if i keep it , so that saves $200 in excess mile fees that i can avoid if i take it now... but hate to waste a month.. any help appreciated (ps. what is the tax at 6% on something like this?)

Hi neillebo. Most aspects of Lincoln's current lease program, including the lease rate, residual values, and lease cash, are scheduled to run through April 4th so you don't have to worry about them expiring. The only part of the program that is scheduled to expire at the end of January is the $500 Ford Credit bonus cash, but I suspect that Ford will renew this for the month of February. The dealer cash that is available on this truck is scheduled to expire at the end of the month as well, but that may or many not have been used to arrive at your deal and it very well may be continued for the month of February as well. I personally would wait until Feb. to get a new Navigator if I was in your shoes.

#20 of 110 Leasing a 2006 Navigator
Feb 08, 2006 (8:31 am)
Hi Car man
Lincoln is now advertising a $499/mo 39 mo lease. Visited the dealer, was told that was for the Luxury not the Ultimate, even though the ad clearly touted the features of the Ultimate. His reply was, "Got you in here, didn't it?" So, now that I'm in, I told him I want an Ultimate. The car I picked out doesn't have the Elite pkg but has DVD in rear, ltd edition monotone pkg but no navigation. MSRP is $55,785. I offered $2,500 drive off and $500 per month. They let me walk. What's a realistic price for this vehicle? I certainly don't want to increase my drive off but I would increase my monthly. Oh, 12,000 mi/yr is fine.
Thanks for your help

I did wait until Feb and got the deal. they also "found" another 1000 off certificate and lowered the deal i spoke of above by $400. so with no money down, other than first months payment and motor vehicle fees (ie 1000 in total), i am paying 666/month.. that includes all taxes, security deposit, etc. you name it. ultimate, etc...

Hi nix1957. I would be happy to give you an idea of what your lease payment should be like on the Navigator that you are interested in. However, in order for me to do so I need you to provide me with an approximate selling price for the model that you want. You may be able to get an idea of how much you should pay for this truck right now by visiting the following discussion: "Lincoln Navigator: Prices Paid & Buying Experience". If you don't find any good feedback there, you can always look up this car's Edmunds.com True Market Value by visiting the following section of this site: Edmunds.com New Vehicle Pricing. Keep in mind though that savvy consumers who shop around can usually do better than the TMV that is listed there. Once you have an idea of how much you will have to pay, let me know and I'll estimate what the lease payment should be for you.

#23 of 110 Leasing 2006 Ultimate
Feb 20, 2006 (3:21 pm)
Hi Car Man,
I'm new to this forum so any help would be greatly appreciated. I just got back from a dealer that offered me a 2006 4x2 Ultimate Navigator. It has power liftgate, power fold down seats, power deploying running boards, and power moonroof. The price we decided on was $49,020. The lease payments would be $559 tax included for 39 months and 12k miles a year, 0 down. Is this a good lease payment price?
Thanks again for your help.

I am new to this board and really appreciate your help. I am looking to lease a Ultimate 4x4, with Elite, and Limited Edition Package for 36 months, 12k miles. Can you help me prepare some pricing that I can walk into the dealer with. I own an Expidition Eddie Bauer now and was hoping to get some great incentives as well. I am willing to pay tax upfront, but that is it...I live in Long Island NY and any dealers you recommend would be great as well.

I made it into the dealer this weekend and was quoted $670/month, without tax. 39 Months/12k miles. This was for a 4x4 Ultimate with the Elite Package + Power Running Boards, Chrome Rims and AutoStart. I also do not have to make the first payment as that was just introduced. This was for NO money down except, tax + bank fee and plates. (about $3400) Can anyone let me know if this was a good deal??
Anyone's feedback is really appreciated.

A major national newspaper would like to interview those who bought a 2007 Lincoln Navigator or a Cadillac Escalade and got a sizable discount off the sticker price. Please respond to jfallonedmunds.com before Wednesday, March 1, 2006 with your daytime contact info and a few words about the model you chose.

Hi car man I have a few questions well I would like to lease a Lincoln Navigator ultimate, black, limited Edition pkg, power running boards, and h.i.d. lamps, msrp 58890 I have excellent credit but I am currently leasing a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 6000 in negative equity. Can I use the 4500 cash back to erase some of it, leaving 1500 in negative equity? Then I would not mind putting down about 4000. What would my payment be for a 39 month red carpet lease? Thanks
