Hi nephrons. I can't tell you what this truck's lease payment should be like without knowing its full MSRP and selling price. Provide me with those numbers, and I'll work up a lease payment for you. For now, I can tell you that if you were to lease a 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca 5-Passenger Limited 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 .00080 and 57%, respectively.

#92 of 362 Looking to lease in CT.
Mar 06, 2006 (10:54 am)
From everything I read here, it looks like the SOA lease is a great deal. I was going to get the LTD 7 passenger w/o DVD or navigation, I am being quoted the SOA deal of $2900 down , $299 a month or a variation of the #'s. I'm not seeing much wiggle room in other postings, does anyone have any advice contrary?

If it's the straight SOA lease, there's a little wiggle room left but not much. SNE has tossed in a "stair-step" program to induce additional sales, up to another $1000.

I think it is a combination of things.
Partly SOA lacks name prestige (Snob Appeal)
Core Subie owner are not willing to spend that much for there beloved subies.
Higher end buyers will spend more if only the B9 had a more upscale options list. But with out the options they are not interested.

That's way too much. I got a NO MONEY DOWN deal on a 7 pass Ltd B9 with DVD and Aero Bars for $425/month (36 month/12,000 miles per yr) . I drove away having made only the first month's payment & registration fees and rolled everything else into the lease.
Regards and good luck...Joe

If you don't mind my asking you, would you let me know the dealership where you got your Tribeca? How was the overall experinece? I'm also in the NYC area. I'm strongly considering getting the Tribeca before the end of the month and hoping to get into under $410 with similar options (i.e. DVD, tinting mirror & compass). Also, did you go according to the Subaru run lease promo or did you negotiate the lease from the MSRP down? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I got my Tribeca from Grand Prix Subaru in Hicksville (Long Island) NY in January. The experience was good. But, I only got that deal because I told them I knew about Subaru's special Lease deal ($299/mth, $2,998 down on a 7 pass LTD). When I first went there they gave me #'s based on MSRP. I don't know if the deal still exists for March, but you could get it at ANY dealership if you tell them you know about it. I still don't think they've been selling well and they've gotta make room for the '07 soon so it still might be in effect and may be even better. Because it's a Subaru Corporate sanctioned deal, you can't do any better. I think the #'s work out where I ended up getting the car for about $2500 off MSRP. The Aero Bar ended up getting thrown in because they didn't have that on my original lease paperwork and when I changed colors they had to get me one from another dealer. It ended up having the Aero Bar option and they never changed the paperwork...saved me $210. The deal on the Subaru Corporate paperwork shows all the different options (5 or 7 pass, LTD, DVD and/or NAV) and lease prices. A 7 pass LTD w/DVD is $328/mth w/$2998 down. I had it all rolled into the lease with a few more accessory options and it came to $425/mth.

Joe, Thanks very much.
I thought that was according to the promo deal. It is still on thru the end of March: $1,999 down, $595 acquisition fee, $299 1st Month + taxes and misc. fees.
My wife just scheduled an appointment for a test drive for the following Saturday. She's the primary driver and transports the kids a whole lot. I was considering to purchase the Odessey until I stumbled onto this deal. It appears to be a great value for a $35,000 ride. Another consideration was Volvo XC70 AWD. Still would like to test drive each car.
Oh, I have two more questions to ask. What was the money factor assigned and what did the Subaru put as a residual value? Again, thank you for your quick reply.

Yes, the deal is still on. They advertised it on CBS880 this afternoon. The $1,999 down, $595 acquisition fee, $299 1st Month pymt comes to the $2900 total downpayment I was quoted so it is the same deal. 0.0008 money factor with a 58% residual. It really does have a great ride. That's one of the best things about it. At this price I feel it is a great value as well. Especially considering what an X3, X5, XC70, Touareg, RX330 and FX45, even Murano similarly loaded go for. I'm sure your wife will love it.
