#8 of 235 about leasing HELP Please?
Sep 24, 2005 (8:29 am)
Back in Sept of 2001 I went out looking for a new Toyota truck and came across what I was hopping to be a nice buy, a Tundra 2wd.
The sale-man was just telling me O'h leasing was just wonderful (the best thing in town) I'm coming to the end of my lease now and coming to find out that the salemen was NOT up front with me at-all
This truck will have 30,000 buy the end of this mo. yes I do alot of driving as you can tell. Still has the same show room tires.. It's had 2 recall's 1 front end and this last one was dealing with the exhust system..
I have done a lot of talking to the managers at Toyota of Concord CA all to know avail. Come Dec. 2005 my last invoice will have a $18,000.00 last payment Due notice
So the Salemen can do on wrong it seem's I am holding the bag. Is there anything that I can do?

Are you sure you have a lease? If you have an $18K payment that is not optional, then it sounds like a balloon payment loan..
And 30,000 miles? That doesn't sound like much over 4 years... Do you mean 300,000 miles?
You might want someone independent from the dealer to look over your paperwork.

I am sorry to hear about your situation, mike101a. I suggest that you place a call to the bank that your lease or balloon note for your Tundra is through. Even balloon notes nowadays usually give consumers the option to just turn their vehicles in at the end of their contract rather than forcing them to purchase them. There is a good chance that you can walk away from your truck in December, just having to pay any excess mileage and wear and tear charges. The recalls that your truck has had should not be a problem. Vehicles have them all the time. It would be a good idea to get them taken care of, for your own safety more than anything, but you will not be fined if you don't. As far as the tires go, if you have not rotated them on a regular basis, there is a chance that you will get hit with an excess wear and tear charge if there is not much tread left on them. I agree with kyfdx that 30,000 miles is not very much. Is that a typo? If not, you probably will not have to pay an excess mileage charge on your truck.

#11 of 235 How can Toyota offer a $269/month lease on a $28K MSRP car?
Nov 25, 2005 (7:07 pm)
Toyota has had a $269 / month lease offer out for two months now on a 2006 Tundra Double Cab SR5 V8. This is for 12K miles a year for 39 months.
The cars that fall in line for this are targeted at $27,600. (extra accessories mean a greater payment ...) The buyout afterwards is around $20K.
This sounds like a really good deal. Almost too good?
#12 of 235 Great lease offers? Pros? Cons?
Nov 27, 2005 (3:26 pm)
The offer in my area is either: $199 month for a Tundra Regular Cab, 36 months with $698 due at lease signing, or $269 month for 36 months with $768 due at lease signing. This does sound like a great offer and we have never leased before. I would love to hear any feedback including pros and cons. This truck would be for my husband who usually drives under 9,000 miles per year.
#13 of 235 06 Tundra double cab 4x4 lease question
Jan 25, 2006 (2:55 pm)
I was wondering what you think of this lease.I got a quote on a 06 Tundra double cab 4wd today that I think is a good deal.The sticker price is $33,100,and the truck is a double cab 4wd SR5 w/ all weather package,JBL stereo,alloy wheels,color keyed fenders,keyless entry,limited slip,fog lights,privacy glass,bedliner,exhaust tip finishers,and carpeted floor mats.
The deal is $291 a month including 5% sales tax,and a buyout of $21,116.The money factor is .00025,but I am not sure of the selling price.the sales guy told me it was invoice,so I could figure that out.All I would need to come up with upfront is $459.15 which is first month,and DMV fees for plates,and such.This is a 36 month 12K miles per year lease.Does this sound good to you?I need to act before the end of the month if I want this deal.Thanks in advance.

#15 of 235 Tundra lease numbers in Colorado
Feb 24, 2006 (9:06 am)
Any chance you can give me lease numbers on a Tundra Double-cab 4WD in Colorado. They are advertising a $249 pm lease on this truck with a couple of grand down for 36 months. I'm trying to figure out what I should be paying after I negotitate the cap cost a little. I'm also looking for similar numbers on the Tacoma truck too, again, double cab 4WD

Hi Chris. You never mentioned the selling price of the truck that you are interested in leasing. This is an important number for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing the price of the truck that you want to lease you don't know how good a price you are getting it for. The second reason is that one needs the selling price of a vehicle that they want to lease is that it is necessary to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion on the lease that you were quoted on the Tundra that you are interested in for you if you let me know what its selling price is. For now I can tell you that the money factor that you were quoted looks very attractive and it is in line with Toyota Financial Services' current base lease money factor for the '06 Tundra in many regions.
