Here's the information that you're looking for, mersadk. Subaru Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a base 2008 Impreza 2.5i Wagon with 15,000 miles per year are .00250 and 69%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00160 and 57%. If you were to lease with only 12,000 miles per year, this car's residual values would be 1% higher.

These are the numbers that a dealer gave me for the 36-mo lease 12k/yr on 2008 Impreza Wagon Premum: money factor 0.0019 and 60% residual. When I questioned the money factor number he replied that the 0.00160 number (as per your post) is for the non-premium model only.
Is his information correct, or yours??
#111 of 561 2008 Impreza 2.5i Base Sedan wth Man. Trans. Lease
Nov 01, 2007 (11:39 am)
I wanted an inexpensive, reliable, AWD car for my kids and this car seemed to fit the bill; I leased this car from a Denver dealer at the following terms:
Discount: $ 710.54
Discounted Price: $16,929.46 (inc. D&H of $399.95)
Acquisition Fee: $ 595.00
Capitalized Cost: $17,524.46
Sec. Dep. $0
term: 36 Mos.
Money Factor: 0.00190
(B4 sales tax)
All in all this seemed like an ok deal considering my only out of pocket was the first month's payment of $232.50. The high residual of 63% and the reasonable MF of 0.00190 made for a low payment.
I wanted the Premium Package, but that increased the cap. cost $1500 and decreased the residual to 61%. That would have increased the payment $53.65/Mo. to $286.15, and I didn't judge it to be worth the extra.
Every dealer I contacted quoted MF of 0.00190 on 36 mo. deals; if there's a 0.00160 rate out there as quoted in this forum I couldn't find the car and/or terms on which it was available.
By the way, the sedan had higher residuals than the hatchback. On a 36 mo. 10k deal the residuals were 59% for the base model and 58% for the premium package.
#112 of 561 November numbers?
Nov 02, 2007 (6:57 pm)
Not sure if the November #s are out yet, but if anyone has the residuals and money factor for a 2008 2.5i w/ premium package I'd be grateful. Looking for both 24 and 36 month terms, for 10k miles (12k if no 10k available). I am primarily interested in the hatchback, but would be curious to know if there is a difference with the sedan.

This dealer is offering the 2008 impreza 2.5i 5 door with preminum package for 500 below invoice which comes out to 19431 + tax/lic/docs fee. Is that a good deal? Or should I wait for teh price to go down more?

#115 of 561 December Lease numbers
Dec 07, 2007 (1:13 pm)
Can you tell me what the December Lease numbers are on the :
Impreza 2.5i 5dr Wagon Premium and the impreza 2.5i 5 Dr wagon with nav ?
I spoke to a dealer today who told me the Residual was 57% which seems about right.
Thanks in advance

I'm not sure what the actual numbers break down to, but I was able to get a 24 mo. lease, 12,000 mi/yr with $2500 total out of pocket down for $168.50/mo. Does this seem fair?
it was on the base model, 5 spd, only option was the spoiler.

#118 of 561 Proposed Lease from Dealer...Help!!! Purchasing Soon
Feb 10, 2008 (10:13 pm)
Here's the lease offer from a dealer i got today for a 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX 5-Dr Auto with Premium and VDC.
Purchase Price: $26,591
Edmunds Invoice Price: $26,317
Option 1) 36 mos, 15k/yr: $678.39 Total Drive Off, $433.64 payment including tax. $14,974.44 Residual (52%???), and 0.00150 lease factor.
Option 2) 48 mos, 12k/yr: $651.32 Total Drive Off, $406.57 payment including tax. $13,246.62 Residual (46%???), and 0.00215 lease factor.
I have a couple of questions: Can i do better on the purchase price? I have Tier 1 credit, is the residual and MF the best i can get or is the dealer marking up these numbers? Also, the lease calculator i have shows the payment should be $416.80 for 36 mos and $393.66 for 48 mos; why is the dealer payment higher? Could this be due to additional hidden dealer fees i'm not aware of?
I think i have a good offer but i think that there's definitely room for negotiation. Lastly, does VW offer any service/ maintenance plan i can try to get the dealer to throw in with the car?
Thanks so much for words of wisdom.
