Hi superman5. Subaru Auto Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a base 2007 Impreza 2.5i Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00220 and 64%, respectively. When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to keep in mind that Subaru is currently providing $650 lease cash on it. This cash will help you to negotiate an attractive capitalized cost. I made some assumptions about the model and mileage allowance that you want. Let me know if you want info for a different trim level or mileage.

Hi Car man -
It's nice that you take the time to help everyone with the payment info and all that, but why do you always say "right now" in you postings? It seems like such a pushy sales tactic...I always imagine myself sitting across a desk from you, and you using that "right now" term to push me into signing a contract immediately.
Anyway, since you're helping out here, and not selling anything, why the "right now"?
Just curious; I don't intend this as a flame or anything.
#38 of 579 Is this quote on a lease too high
Nov 08, 2006 (1:01 pm)
I just received a quote for an STI and wanted to know if this is a good deal or not. It is a 42 month lease 12K a year, the cost of the car is $32,323 requires $1,382.37 down and my monthly payment will be $488.62. This seems a little high.
The purchase price is
60 month loan at 4.9% with $0 down
$666.60 a month
$32,323 (price of car)
$45.00 (doc fee)
$2,670.36 (taxes based on 8.25%) could be more or less deppending on where you live
$35,038 (sub total)
$290 (license and smog fees)
$8.75 (gov fees)
$4,658.89 (finance charge)
Now I currently am leasing and the pay off on my car is $27K but the trade in value is $30K. Can I have them cut me a check for the 3K?
#39 of 579 Negative Equity Dilemma
Nov 19, 2006 (8:20 am)
Hello all, I am new to this board and I have a question. I am currently leasing a '06 Impreza 2.5i and I wanna upgrade to the WRX. I am approximately 6,000 in negative equity because of the mileage. Another dealership has offered me 21,900 for the '06 WRX. I am going to lease again but I'm unsure what my payments monthly will be. I'm willing to put down possibly half that negative equity but will that get my payments down to around $400 a month? Or how can I reach that goal if its attainable. I appreciate your help.

Well, riposte, I am not a salesperson, but rather an employee of Edmunds.com, so it doesn't matter whether community members lease new Subarus or not. I always state "currently" or "right now" in my posts because manufacturers' lease programs change. If I didn't say this, a community member might come along and look at a post that is a month or two old and just assume that the information that it contains is still valid, when it is not. Subaru's current lease program is only scheduled to run through November 30th. It is difficult to say what its December program will look like. Its lease offerings on 2007 models will probably be at least as attractive in December as they are now, but there is a chance that they will be different. One should never feel rushed to lease a vehicle before the end of a lease program. The only right time to lease a vehicle is when you are ready and comfortable.

Greetings carnutz3. If you actually can make $3,000 by getting out of your current lease, this is an unusual situation, you are in a good position and absolutely should have the dealer that you are working with cut you a check for your vehicle rather than using the proceeds from it as a down payment on your new lease. I always advise consumers not to make any sort of capitalized cost reduction when leasing. Those who do risk losing them if their leased vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered.
I would be happy to give you my opinion on the lease that you were quoted. However, in order for me to do so I need to know its full MSRP and selling price. You already mentioned one of these numbers, I believe that it is the selling price. I just need the other. Having both numbers will show me how much of a discount you are being given and it will enable me to use Subaru's current lease program to estimate your vehicle's monthly payment. Let me know and I'll tell you what I think.

Welcome jwill008. I would be happy to give you an idea of how much the WRX that you are interested in will cost to lease. In order for me to do so, I need you to provide me with its full MSRP (including the destination charge) and its approximate selling price. Make sure to tell me how long you want to lease it for and what mileage allowance you need as well.
