#359 of 662 Hello HH Owners! :)
Apr 12, 2009 (8:24 am)
Hi, I'm looking to make my first car purchase without the help of my parents. As an early college graduation gift, I wanted to buy myself a car. I've always loved Highlanders, but am in no position to buy a new one. I just wanted to get some feedback on a potential HH that is for sale at a dealership here in town and see if you guys thought it was a good buy or not?
- Is that too many miles?
- What is the battery life and have any of you experienced problems?
- I appreciate any feedback!!! Thanks again!
They are asking 18,871.

I'd question the huge mileage # in such a relatively short time. Was this owned by a private party or is it an ex-rental ?

Hi mdxlessee. A lease payment of $717 per month for a Toyota Highlander . Holy Toledo that's bad. That's about three hundred bucks per month more than I would be willing to pay for this truck. Have you tried shopping around at other dealers? Clearly this dealer doesn't want your business.
I would start by comparison shopping with other Toyota dealers for the Highlander that you are considering. If you are still getting quoted high payments, you may want to consider switching to a different model with a more attractive lease program.

Do you have the MF and Residual on a 09 Limited 4WD? 12k/36mo. Any dealer incentives this month? Thanks.
#364 of 662 2008 Highlander Ltd, Turn In, Sell or Keep It
May 17, 2009 (5:06 pm)
OK, I have a lease question for you all. Lets assume my wife decides she likes our 2008 Highlander Ltd, and wishes to keep it after the lease ends. I personally like the way it drives/rides, the gas mileage just isn't exactly off the top of the charts.
The calculated residual is 49.8% at the end of a 36 month lease, with an allowable mileage of 18K/year. I will be below 54,000 miles (allowable) at the end of the lease.
Gross cap was $34K, and the purchase option at the end comes out to be roughly $17K. ALL maintenance costs were free for the life of the lease, as I negotiated that as part of the deal.
Assuming the reliability of a Toyota, and the fact that my previous Camry got 275,000 miles before I sold it, does it mathematically come out over a 10 year period to be about a wash, or is it smarter to privately list it at the end of the lease? Only reason I ask is that every other car I have purchased, this is the first one I have leased.

Just recently joined. I have a lease option for a 2009 Highlander - loaded with Nav and leather. With $2,000 down my payment would be about $560. Is that a reasonable price? They dealer tells me it would be cheaper to lease vs. buy at this point. Does that seem right??
Any advice would be great.

I might possibly be interested, but I'm in GA. I get bored with cars quickly and have been feeling the new car burn a little lately. Got a 2008 HL Sport with only 8500 miles. I'm almost half way through my three year lease. Still a great car! Email me what you're thinking about.
