Greetings sbuhler. Let's work up a lease payment for this truck and see what we come up with. According to my calculations, if you were to lease a base 2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca 7-Passenger with an MSRP of $33,150 and a selling price of $29,500 through Subaru Finance right now for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, your zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $440. With this deal, at lease signing you would have to pay your truck's first month's payment, a security deposit equivalent to that payment rounded up to the nearest $25 increment, Subaru Finance's $595 acquisition fee, and any required state taxes or fees at signing. When negotiating the selling price for your lease of this truck, keep in mind that Subaru is currently providing $1,250 dealer cash on leases of it.
Vehicles' residual values are based upon a percentage of their full MSRPs, including the destination charge and the MSRPs of any options that can be residualized.

Car_man, do you have Subaru's current MF and residual for the B9 5-passenger Limited, at both 36 and 39 mos, 15k per year? Thanks in advance.
#225 of 362 what's negotiable on a lease?
Feb 08, 2007 (7:04 am)
i am really looking to avoid paying a down payment on a lease and am curioius to know if that is negotiable. the tribeca lease right now is $299/mo with $2800 down, whereas the outback lease is $289/mo with $0 down. i would prefer the tribeca, but want to avoid the money down...
if the down payment is tough to get them to budge on, how about lowering the monthly payment?
#226 of 362 Car Leasing For Dummies
Feb 13, 2007 (7:20 pm)
I have NEVER leased a vehicle before, and am completely clueless on how to get the best car lease deal.
I visited my local Dealership today (I live in NJ)...and was given a price of $400 a month on 36 month lease, $1,500 inception fees, 15,000 mi. (afraid I don't have any more info)for a 2007 Subaru Tribeca Limited Edition, 5 passenger vehicle.
Can you explain in "simple" terms the info I need to know about getting a good deal on a car lease. Also, did I receive a fair offer on the lease? Thank you in advance.

That is the special incentive they are offering in most markets. The Residual (or buy back) at the end of the 36 months needs to be known to determine the acceptability of the deal.
CarMan, the Host here, can probably give more details.
#228 of 362 Buy Back question

Thanks for the info hypnosis44.
Is it important to factor in the "buy back" amount even though I have no intention of buying back the car at the end of the lease?

Hey passat_mx. Here's the information that you're looking for. This truck's lease program varies by trim level, so for now I will assume that you are interested in a base 5-Passenger model. Let me know if you want something different. Subaru Finance's buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 B9 Tribeca Base 5-Passenger with 15,000 miles per year are .00170 and 53%, respectively. When negotiating your lease on this model, make sure to take advantage of the $2,000 dealer cash incentive that is currently available on it. This cash will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost for your lease.

Hi again passat_mx. Ahhh, I see that you subsequently specified what trim level you want...I was close . We're in luck because the 5-Passenger Limited model's lease program is exactly the same as the 5-Passenger Base's program. These models' 39 month, 15,000 mile per year numbers are .00200 and 51%.

Hi thefunk. Consumers can lease any vehicle that they want without making any sort of a capitalized cost reduction. At lease signing, Subaru Finance requires lessees to pay their vehicle's first month's payment, a security deposit that's equivalent to their payment rounded up to the nearest $25 increment, a $595 acquisition fee, and any required state taxes or fees. If you really want to, you should be able to roll most of these charges into your vehicle's capitalized cost to bake them into your monthly payment.
Always remember that the selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Negotiate the lowest selling price that you can on the Tribeca that you want, making sure to take advantage of the $2,000 dealer cash that is currently available on it, and then have the dealer that you are working with use that price to calculate your lease payment. If you are in an area that has a decent level of competition, chances are that you will be able to negotiate a lower selling price on this Tribeca than the one Subaru's advertised lease payment is based upon.
