you don't pay interest on taxes....taxes are added to the monthly charge each month. There is no advantage to paying them up front unless your state requires you to do so.
Maintenance covers the maintenance of the car by mercedes and by including it in the lease as a feature, you may find that you only pay a part of the list price. Get them to quote the same lease with maintenance included.....find the difference in price between with/without maintenance and multiply by the length of your lease. If they residualized it, the total will be far less than the MSRP of the maintenance.
Be careful...if you wait for the "financial guy" when you pick up the car, he will just ask for a check for the full amount. Be smart...ask your salesman to include Mercedes (not some third party) maintenance in your lease and get the monthly payments. Tell him "please include the maintenance as a feature on the car....as they do on the mercedes web site when you configure a car there".

Msd's are safer. Get Mercedes maintenance rolled into the lease as a feature on the car. Consider getting a p2 car for the much improved lighting. The 24 mo bluetec lease is tHe best lease deal in the market....and it's a terrific car.
#2334 of 3245 Leasing Questions MB Finance?
Jun 28, 2012 (4:43 pm)
I have a few questions for anyone who has dealt with MB leasing. Previosly I have dealt with Acura who is the best leasing companyfor many reasons, no end of lease fees, allowances for over miles or minor damages to $1500.00, no hassles if tires are pretty worn etc. How is MB at end of lease? Are there and scheduled service on these leases that you are forced to use MB dealer repair. I would appreciate any information about their leasing policies both pro and con. I have to make a decision this weekend. Thanks Robert

There are barely any Bluetecs around any more. The new ones I was told come in October? So I can only get the P1 based on that is available. Have you ever leased from MB before? I am wondering about how they are to deal with. Audi was nto good and I wont buy another one. Acura has been great with me (American Honda)
#2336 of 3245 MF/residual % For Mercedes E350 sedan
Jul 02, 2012 (2:59 pm)
Hi Car man,
Can you please tell me the July MF (tier 1 credit) and residual % for leasing a 2012 Mercedes E350 4-door sedan(gas model) for 33months 12k and 15k respectively. Is The competitive conquest program still in effect and can MSD's be used. I am located in Los Angeles, CA. Any other fees besides origination charge of $795, and tax/license that I should expect to pay up front?
Need to make a decision quickly. Thanks in advance for your help
#2337 of 3245 Pricing of 2012 e350 coupe 4matic in Canada
Jul 04, 2012 (8:06 pm)
Not gettingg much luck with the dealer here in canada. Only giving 2k off msrp
Which turns out to be 72000
With 4.9% lease rate (36mo) and 12000kms a year the payment comes to 1160 a month
Isn't it too much for a e350?
Any other canadians who had a better deal?

Hi everyone, I have the same questions as rravinmd, does anyone know this information?
#2339 of 3245 Re: 48 or 60 months lease??? [rravin]
Jul 09, 2012 (2:22 pm)
Hi rravin. The 33-month term is definitely better than the 36-month term on this car right now, but neither mileage allowance, 12k or 15k, is necessarily better than the other. It all depends upon how many miles you need. If you're going to use 15,000 miles per year definitely go with that option.
Mercedes-Benz Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 33-month lease of a 2012 E350 Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00127 and 60%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.
MB Finance's base acquisition fee is indeed $795.
The conquest cash certificates should be available in your area. I don't see why it wouldn't be compatible with MSDs.
Each additional deposit lowers the money factor by .00007.

Hi Robert. As far as service goes, I never performed more than tire rotations and oil changes and they didn't seem to care about that, but Mercedes-Benz Finance is one of the few companies that did indeed hit me with an excess wear and tear charge when I turned in my leased vehicle. I was actually fairly surprised. It wasn't huge, but I still wasn't thrilled about it. Getting dinged with the $595 disposition fee is pretty annoying as well.
I wouldn't say that MB Finance is terrible, but you probably won't find your experience with them as pleasant as your experience with Acura Finance.
