The answer is a couple of post above you....
2010 Mazda3s sport with an automatic transmission 15,000 miles per year are .00169 and 62%
2010 Mazda3 s GT with an automatic transmission and 12,000 miles per year are .00169 and 60%
Sport has a residual of 62% for 15k. GT has residual of 60% with only 12k. The residuals vary by trim level and they have a super high residual in place for the sport so they can advertise a super lease deal.

the advertised deals, summer drive off are for 42 months. they are different than what you are referring too .. thus the questions we have been asking

So what if the term is 42 months, the logic is the same. Residuals are different based on trim level, all car manufacturers that I know of follow this policy. The cheapest, lowest featured, sometimes not even readily available (Infiniti G37 non-Journey for example) will usually have the highest residual. As you thrown on the features the residuals drop. Sometime the manufacturer will raise the residual for a certain trim level due to stock most likely.
But as already posted the residuals are lower for a GT versus a Sport for 36 months, so they are not going to magically equalize if the term is 42 months.
As already stated leasing a car with a 36/36 warranty for 42 months is not a good idea. Don't out-lease a warranty.

yes the logic is the same however the deal is not
mazda has a summer drive off lease program right now, 42 months and they make 1st payment. Is mazda providing support to get these attractive rates? what are the money factor and residual on this program?
no one has answered the question?

Of course Mazda is providing support. You don't think a 62% residual for 36/15 is lease support? Those are unheard or residuals for even a low depreciation manufacturer like Honda. Take a look at Mazda6 residuals. Last month I got a quote on a s GT and the residual was a lousy 46% for 36/12.
Logic is logic. The residual on the 42 month sport is going to be higher then any other trim level.
FYI if you were to lease a sport at invoice for 36/12 the payment would be about $210 before tax as long as you paid first months payment, tags and doc fee at drive off. Remember advertised specials do not include doc fee and tags so you have to pay that upfront or roll it into the lease. The special $229 payment also does not include sales tax. You are much better off leasing for 36 months then 42.

has anyone done the lease deal recently, i am getting sale price's approximately 1000 below msrp. but then they all seem to add in fee's which make the net cap cost slightly above msrp. any advice experience would be appreciated.
#420 of 852 help, first time car
Aug 31, 2009 (8:29 am)
I just leased the Mazda 3 2010 i-Touring for 240 a month with no money down (just paying for plates) 10000 miles a year for 36 months. This is my first car and I wanted to know, for piece of mind, if I negotiated a good deal or not. The MSRP was 19070 and I think the residual was around 11000 and cap cost around 18000. Any information from someone experienced would be appreciated, thank you.

Do we have to replace a tire on the car with the exact same brand when returning the leased car?
