#132 of 331 4Runner Lease NJ
Jul 20, 2006 (9:07 pm)
Car_Man: Could you check the monthly payment on a Black 2006 4Runner SR5 4WD V6 for 36 months 15,000 miles per year. MSRP $32,701 Sale price $29,624 in NJ. As per your previous post I assume the $1250 customer cash is not compatible with this lease program in my area. I didn't include that cash in the purchase price above. Can you confirm a .00055 money factor & 58% residual in Toyota's NJ region for Tier 1 credit?
#133 of 331 4-Runner Lease Cincinnati
Jul 21, 2006 (7:51 pm)
Great deal going on at King's Toyota in Cincinnati. Just closed a deal on a Limited 4x4 V6. Ended up paying 2% over invoice for dealer to locate specfic color. All 4-Runners there are 1% over invoice with the currect lease factor of .00005.
Here's the details:
Sale: $36,700 (2% over invoice)
Money down: $3,337 ($2500 cap, $162 tax, $320 title, and first month payment)
Monthly Payment: $393.91 for 12k per year. $415 for 15k per year.
This is an awesome deal (minus the money down) and and they were pretty flexible on meeting my demends on a trade in. Basically got a fully loaded Limited 4-runner for $3 of interest per month. Tough to beat that.
I also tried Beechmont Toyota and was highly displease with the games they were trying to play with me on both the 4-Runner and my trade in.

I am trying to decide to either buy a preowned 4 runner with low mileage or lease a brand new one. I went to Fred Haas toyota here in Houston. I first spoke with this rude salesman that i could not even understand. I asked to speak to someone else i got quoted 350 for a basic 06 4 runner everything basic. Car man can you tell me what i need to ask when i ask for a quote. I am 24 but look younger so when i go they try to rip me off that's why i need to know all the info on leasing a vehicle.
I also wanted to ask if I lease a vehicle can i add my own things to it for example a dvd system in the back.
Also does anyone know where i can get a great deal here in Houston and it's surrounding areas.
#135 of 331 **URGENT BUYING TODAY **
Jul 23, 2006 (6:48 am)
Hi everyone this forum is GREAT! Car_Man you are awesome!
I am torn between the Acura MDX and the 4Runner and I am leasing today. The Acura is my fav but the current money factors stink although they have a $2500.00 rebate that applies. Safety and features are better on MDX Touring too. With that said, any way to get a better money factor on the MDX? Dealer said August will be no better since redisuals will change again. I can lease MDX Touring for $421.00 a month at invoice, less cash and the 4Runner LMTD 6cyl for $394.00 Which do you recommend? Also, is the RDX replacing the MDX? I love the 4Runner too!!! Please advise.

I was in the same situation you are currently in. The MDX was my first choice, but Acura was pretty firm on the money factor (as most luxury dealers are). How many miles per year are included in the $421/mth price for the MDX? That sounds like 10k per year at that price.
I ended up leasing the 4-Runner and like it very much. The MDX isn't quite as sporty as the 4-runner, so it depends on what you are looking. You can't go wrong with either choice. They are both pretty similar in nature.
As for the RDX, I believe that is a smaller verison of the MDX. Similar to the X3 for BMW.
#137 of 331 Want to lease a 2006 4Runner Limited
Jul 25, 2006 (11:56 am)
Can you tell me what the money factor and residual value for a 2006 4Runner Limited 4WD V8 for 36 months 12,000 miles per year in the NY Metro area? I would qualify for Tier 1 credit.
Jul 26, 2006 (1:56 pm)
Carman, I'm the type of person that wants to lease a truck or an SUV based on the payment. As far as I'm consirned, I figure any brand vehicle should be able to run at least for the 36 months I'd like to lease it. I don't have any strict loyalties to any brands. I started with the Frontier, then moved to the 4Runner. As far as I could tell, the 4Runner had one of the best lease deals out there. I'm wondering if there is some type of resource on the web that would give Residual Value, Money Factor, and Rebates that CAN be used with a lease - for any vehicle. I'd like to know how FORD/Chevy/GMC/Toyota/Nissan compare as far as those 3 variables. However, I don't want to bother you by asking you for each of those models. Additionally, it seems like these values change at least monthly.
Is there a resource on the web that is available to the consumer? Thanks again for all your valuable knowledge. I've been checking this forum daily.
#139 of 331 Lease Pricing for 2006 4Runner
Jul 31, 2006 (8:35 am)
I'm looking at leasing a 06' 4runner. My goal is to get the most options and keep my payments under $350/month. I don't have a trade-in and I'm not going to put anything down. If I qualify for tier 1 pricing, which model/options should I expect to get for under $350?
Thanks in advance!
#140 of 331 Just lease 06 ltd v6
Jul 31, 2006 (8:20 pm)
I just leased an 06 Ltd v6 with the following options:
JBL PREMIUM 3-IN-1 W/IN-DAS
DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS
CARPETED FLOOR MATS
DOOR SILL ENHANCEMENTS
FRONT SKID PLATE
Sell price: $35,595
Lease: $448/mth for 15,000 miles per year (before sales tax)
Total cash due at signing: $865 for Acq fee, 1st month and Reg.
That's it....I think it's pretty good considering I put near nothing down.
I will say this, Toyota is doing some funky things with their residuals. They are not calculating the residuals on MSRP. Rather, they are using a formula based on MSRP before options, etc. In the end, the 55% residual seemed more like 51%.....
#141 of 331 Want to lease a SR5 basic 4runner Car-man
Aug 01, 2006 (12:27 am)
Car-man, I want to lease a basic SR5 4runner with no options. The MSRP of the car is $29,166. I was quoted $24,388 from an ad. The ad price was actually $23,388 with a $1,000 rebate. I can't lease it at this price because I would be taking the special lease rate of .00055. Is $24,388 a fair price for the car? And is $16,405 (which is about 56%) a fair residual value? I plan on having no drive offs, so if all works out I calculated a monthly payment of about $292 a month.
Selling price: $24,388
Residual: $16,405 (56%)
Zero down, add the tax, license, and acquisition fees to the price of the car. For 36 months payments came out to $292.79, does this sound about right and a good deal?
