Welcome tribeca4me. Since you are new to the world of leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.
Vehicles' residual values are always based upon a percentage of their full MSRPs, including the destination charge and the MSRPs of any options that can be residualized. This truck's lease program varies depending upon how long you lease it for and how many miles per year you are allowed to drive it. For now I will provide you with info for a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. These seem to be the most common lease terms. Let me know if you want the numbers for a different term or mileage allowance. If you were to lease a base 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca 5-Passenger through its captive finance company right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00120 and 54%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a base 7-Passenger model are .00160 and 53%. When negotiating the selling price of the Tribeca that you want to lease, keep in mind that Subaru is providing $2,500 lease cash on it this month.

You're right, raybear. Thanks for the feedback. However, I have seen Subaru's incentives for several regions and its lease cash for the Tribeca was $2,500 in all of them this month.

On what number is the current 53% depreciation rate calculated on? Is it on the total MSRP price or on the negotiated capitalized price.
I would think it would be on the MSRP since that is a fixed and standard number, am I correct?
#155 of 362 Help with lease calculations
Jun 04, 2006 (11:39 am)
My local Soob dealer sent me an email that says he would sell for $200 over invoice which would represent about $31650 with Popular Equip Group 2 and Protection Group 2 and the sub/amplifier on a base 7-pass version. I am willing to put $2000 down in addition to the lease cash (2500) that's available. What could I expect to pay per month then on 36 mos with 15K per year?
Thanks so much for your help--my wife thanks you too--she's pullin for the Subie.

Chancey- You have got to have thicker skin. I contacted at least 15 dealers in a 50 miles radius before I found one who I felt was worthwhile. It is a numbers game. The trucks are available. I went to the different dealer websites, and looked at inventory (which they do list). You can do this by doing a dealer search on Subaru.com, and it will link you to the websites. Then I e-mailed at least 30 dealers and let them know what I was looking for. I started getting phone calls with quotes, and worked from there. I did not step foot into a dealership (outside of a test drive) until I had a written quote via e-mail. I have done this with my last three leases and negotiated very solid leases as a result.
I never negotiate my leases at a dealership. Being in sales I know I am at a dissadvantage right off the bat. I am on there turf, with the car already in front of me, and it takes nerve after your already there to walk away. That is why I never go in with the intent to lease UNTIL I have the numbers worked out either via fax or e-mail with the dealer. It has worked like a charm! A good book on this is The Motley Fool - You have more than you think. Their advice was priceless.

I acutally have thicker skin than you think. I was used to sell cars for a living with Toyota, Saturn, Buick, and Mitsubishi. I know how these guys work but this was the first time I ever even heard of a manager not giving his name. Our managers would have been fired for sure if they did that. I am starting to get the runaround by all these dealers now. The subaru dealer in Lakeland quoted me a lease of 583 for 3/45 lease on a 7 pass limited DVD/Nav B9. That is a ton more than what one of our posters got their 398 a month B9 7 pass limited for. I have emailed 5 dealers and they are within a 100 mile radius.
