Thanks pshooper. In April, Toyota Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor for the 2009 RAV4 in your region was .00173 for consumers who qualify for its top aka Tier 1+ credit tier. Of course, it is now May and this program has changed. The good news is that it has likely changed for the better. Toyota is offering some of the most attractive leases that i have ever seen it offer this month.

I'd be happy to, dwbsales. What is this RAV's selling price. This is a very important number for you to know. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Let me know what the selling price is and I'll tell you what I think.

I am pricing a RAV4, 6cyl, QY, TO, FE for lease over 3 years, 15K miles per year. I have found the price for a similar vehicle on the FitzMall web page. That vehicle is an FE, QY, TO, BC, CF-R, MF. MSRP is $28,840, selling price is $27,672. Edmunds TMV price for the vehicle I want is $27,462.
I would like to make an offer to a local dealer. I qualify for the .00173 money factor, but I do not know the residuals for 15K per year for 3 years. What should I offer to pay per month with no money down?

In reviewing other posts in this forum, I see that calculating residuals on Toyota's is close to impossible. I guess I will have to go to the dealer and see what he has on his lot and ask for the printout of residuals on those vehicles. Does this seem like the best plan?

I visited my dealer today and told them that I had calculated a price on leaseguide.com of $366 (including tax) for the RAV4 I wanted.The dealer came back with an offer of $459, which I think is based on the MSRP price, judging by reverse engineering the number.
The dealer sheet I was given showed the MSRP had increased from $30,075 on Feb 25th to $30,329 today (May 9). The residual value had remained the same at $17,258. Did Toyota have an increase in prices in the last two months? How can the residual value remain the same more than two months later? Anyway, plugging in the edmunds.com TMV value of $27,462 as the Base Cap Cost in leaseguide.com and the residual of $17,258 with a money factor of .00173 and nothing down except DMV costs I got a monthly payment of $360 + $22 tax.
I was quite disappointed at the dealer's offer of $459. It so much higher than what I expected that I am re-evaluating getting a RAV4. Have I made a mistake with my figures or is the dealer just not interested in leasing this vehicle to me?

#259 of 549 Trying to Lease a Rav4 Base 4x4 I4
May 22, 2009 (8:56 pm)
Can you help me with something? I am leasing a Volvo XC90 Awd for a Rav4 Base AWD i4 in Seattle. TFS says I can't afford a Rav4 4x4 Base. But, I have a down pay of $5500 and monthly payment desired at 550. So, can I afford this vehicle or not? Also, can you let me know what lease deals are like and what Toyota's policies are on leasing?
#260 of 549 Rav 4 Leasing Deal.
Jun 04, 2009 (12:04 pm)
Toyota is currently offering this deal in the NY Metro Area
The link to the offer is above.
I have a few questions that I'm hoping someone can answer.
How do you know what model/features you can expect to receive?
Reading the fine print are there any upfront costs that are not included in the $2299 upfront payment?
Finally, I have a 2003 Saturn LW200 in fairly good shape with around 75K miles that I would trade in. What is the best way to get this lease deal and then have my upfront costs reduced or eliminated and maybe even my montly payment partially reduced using the trade in? The trade in value is around $3,500.
In advance, thanks for your help.
