Aug 26, 2013 (11:01 am)
I am in Texas. A local dealer just offered my this deal on a lease. I have never leased a vehicle before. Wanted to get someone' s opinion.
Dealer price: $30,869
Term: 36 Months.
Here is What I am paying:
Down: $2000.00 including the first month payment. I will be paying 35 more payments.
TTL: $ Dealer is paying the TTL. (Which he is claiming to be $2300.00)
Payment: $315.00 (35 Payment)
This is basic model with no leather. Only thing it has extra is running boards.

The dealer is not paying TTL. It is built in to the capitalized cost or part of the down payment. Check the numbers.

If I add the numbers. Here is what I get.
35 payment of 315 35*315= $11025
Down Payment: $2000
Total I am paying in 36 month: $13025+$17802 (Residual)= $30827.
This is almost the selling price of the vehicle. Someone has to pay taxes on this transaction. Looks like its not me. Correct me if I am wrong please.

Hi Car Man,
We are interested in leasing either an SE 4WD or a Limited 4WD Highlander. Can you please provide the money factors and residuals for a 36-month lease with 12,000 miles. (Do they offer leases with 10,000 miles?) We are in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Thanks!
#685 of 702 Help, I'm in a Mess
Sep 08, 2013 (1:28 pm)
I've really gotten myself in a mess. I leased a 2012 Acura TSX Sportwagon last fall (end of November), coming out of a '05 Gx460. I was bound and determined to save money on gas. Unfortunately, I'm not happy with my choice. It's a nice car, it's just not the car for me. Now, I realize I am negative in my Acura, I believe our current payoff would be about $8-9k over KBB trade. So, it will come down to how much I want out of this car and if I feel it's worth the cost to me.
Looking at a local Toyota dealer (central Florida), I'm seeing an
Dealer/Internet price $32,050
Can anyone help me out on what I might be looking at with a 36 mo/15k lease, maybe $1500 down?

Thanks for the response (and similar ones for other cars). Why doesn't Toyota release its lease numbers? Can you provide even dated information or for other trim levels? I'd like some way of comparing what a dealership offered me vs what a monthly would be based on a cap cost I "want" to pay. Any suggestions or do I really just have to negotiate solely on the monthly price?

Toyota has about 10 regions, many with different numbers, plus at least two "distributors" that have their own financing programs...
On top of all of that, they have caps on what options they will residualize... so, a 57% residual might only be an effective 53% residual.... Even the dealers can't calculate residuals.. Each unit has it's own residual dollar amount..
So, it's a mess... Many years ago, when our family's choice was between the Accord or Camry, I just gave up on leasing a Toyota... It's not straightforward..
That's not to say you can't do it....
#689 of 702 What am I missing

I'm new to leasing. 2013 highlander SE, 1st months payment and TTL, lease payment of $320. MF .00001 and residual of 22600. I don't know the purchase price yet. I know I need to know that. Something seems too good. What's the catch?
