Acquisition fee was $895
So apparently this was through hans financials that had a $450 deposition fee at the end of the lease. I went with Ally financials without hte deposition fee and paid $10 more /mos. It came out to $438

The acquisition fees for Ally 795 and disposal fee 0 on all GM vehicle. I think Chrysler are same. Us bank normally charge 395 for disposition fee. The residual % with Ally bank may be a point lower that's why payment higher and us bank may be 1% higher. If you have a IPhone you can figures this lease by download app BuyLease. GM sales person

Just be careful... while no disposition fee, Ally has been adding a $2500 purchase option fee to their leases....
That's right.... If you want to buy the car at lease end, they charge an extra $2500 over the residual.

"That's right.... If you want to buy the car at lease end, they charge an extra $2500 over the residual." Is that even legal? I need to check my agreement.

Just checked my agreement. There is an early end penalty of up to several thousand dollars but that is typical. Just the residual payment to buy out plus taxes and fees and fees are not defined within the agreement. I don't think they can charge at lease end if you opt to buy. Just my opinion. That would be unethical.

I'd totally sacrafice 1 screen, but they don't offer 1 screen on the Touring-L.
I don't even want the "L" because I don't really care for the leather, but I do like the window screens and autostart and back-up camera which come standard on the "L", but are options on the regular Touring. So, by the time you add those options, you are paying for the "L" anyway.
I honestly feel like I'm getting hosed on this deal!!!

If it's not in your contract, then of course you don't have it..
But, we've seen reports over the last 15 months of plenty of Ally leases for GMs and Chryslers with the $2500 purchase option clause...
Not sure exactly which divisions get that, or if it was a test program... It never really made much sense.
#348 of 382 Calculate a lease payment
May 28, 2011 (7:53 am)
can some one kindly help me out? I am trying to figure out how much a lease pmt. would be for a 2011 Chrysler town & country touring L
Purchase price-$29309 after negotiating MSRP and including $3,000. in rebates and incentives
No money down
$2,200. out of pocket for taxes and fees...NY resident
36 month lease with 15K
money factor 0.032
Dealer says he can do it for $424. per month
I am also trying to negotiate for the dealer to make my last 2 pmts. on my current lease.
does this sound like a good deal?

What is the MSRP on that van? Did they tell you that $29,309 is your capitalized cost... or just your purchase price? Capitalized cost will include any fees that you are financing.
In order to figure your lease payment, you need four things...
2) Capitalized Cost
4) Money Factor (or APR)
