Toyota RAV4, Car Leasing, SUV
Jan 28, 2012 (7:38 pm)
I am looking for a Lease on either the 2011 or 2012 RAV4 and visited a dealer in the NY area. He stated that Toyota does not offer a 3rd row in a limited edition with Leather and that I would have to buy a base model and have the dealer install the leather seats. Here is what I am being offered -
4 WD Base Model 4 cylinder RAV4 with 3rd Row option
Dealer installed Leather Seats
Cap Cost: $26000
Money Factor: 0.00001
Residual Value: $15,411
Term: 36 Months
$332 per month for 15k miles per year
$319 for 12k miles per year.
Even though this would be considered a 0 down deal, the dealer stated that I would have to pay the bank fee ($650 plus tax, so $695), NJ taxes for lease period ($836), first month's payment and the NJ registration fee, so I guess I would be putting down around $2000.
The dealer told me that the invoice for the base model itself was $24k and with the 3rd row option it was more. The leather installation was another $2k and that they were making pretty much no money for this sale. I wasn't sure if that was accurate and wanted an opinion from an expert before finalizing anything. I was tempted to ask him to include the integrated bluetooth feature and offer the 2012 model instead for the above numbers.
I qualify for the top credit tier.
Please let me know what your suggestion on whether this is a good price or not.
Thanks for your help.

why would small kids need a leather seat? also if dealer can install leather on all 3 rows of seats on the base model why can't they just install it on the limiteds 3rd row seat only? also no dealer can afford to sell cars at no profit they wouldn't be able to keep there doors open long. also check with the lease agreement if u have to pay a disposal fee at lease turn in. are there any other dealers u can go to??

If anything, small kids need a leather seat more than adults, as it is easier to clean.
I was told that the 3rd row only comes with the Base 4WD model, so they can't install it on the Limited edition. I am not sure if this is something specific to the NY area, or whether Toyota just doesn't manufacturer a 3rd row on Limited. The second row can move back and forth, probably 6-10 inches with the 3rd row option.
#508 of 549 March residual & money factor???

Does anybody know the March residuals and money factor on the 2012 RAV4 Limited 4-cyl 4x4?
Looking for 3yr/12k per year lease. I'm still deciding between this and the Highlander SE.
#509 of 549 RAV 4 acquisition fee and dealer processing
Mar 15, 2012 (5:50 am)
I'm helping my mother-in-law with her purchase/lease of a 2012 RAV 4 4Cyl 4X4 Ltd. The Delaware dealer is pricing the car at $832 over invoice and is offering a .0001 money factor plus $500 cash back. I'm OK with that much of the deal, but am concerned about some fees. There is a $419 "processing fee" that includes three year registration and tags, plus there is an acquisition fee of $650 for the lease, all in addition to the $810 fee that comes on the car's sticker. Are these fees reasonable?

#512 of 549 A second Rav4 lease
May 23, 2012 (8:16 am)
I live in Greater Boston.
In January I leased a 2011 Rav4 base model 4x4 with automatic transmission. It was a 36 month lease with 12k miles/year. The MSRP was $25,124. My total out of pocket was $3999 and the dealer kept a $400 Toyota rebate. My monthly payment is $121.24 plus tax (which makes the monthly payment $128.82)
I'm now in the market for a second vehicle. Should I be able to duplicate this deal on a 2012?

Hi pupper4. This vehicle's lease program varies by region. I need you to tell me what state you are in to give you an accurate idea of what its current program is like.
