I was approved for a Tier 1 Ford Motor Credit lease. I first looked at a Ford Fusion SE with Sun and Sync Package as this is what they were advertising on TV. With a 10,500 mile lease on 24 months, my payment would be 192.94 (w tax) and $2740.72 Down due at signing including first month payment. I get Xplan pricing with my work and they told me this is the absolute best deal I can get. The residual is $15790.95 which is 63%.
The second option to my surprise was to lease an SEL (fully loaded w/o appearance pack) model Fusion for 194.96 for 24 months with a residual of $18,851.20. 62%. Same down payment. I am trying to understand with Xplan pricing if this is a good deal on either of these. I would like a 12,000 mile lease, but it will be roughly be about $12 a month they said would take my payment to $208. I have to bring the car back tomorrow and make a decision. I was going to ask them to split the difference on the mileage extra so I could stay at $199. The residual seems high on these but I will probably turn the car in because I will be upside down at the lease turn in. What are anybodys thoughts on these? Should I go for it with the xplan or am I getting taken? Please help. I am a first time lease customer. Also, the manager said the xplan was $125-150 above invoice and I am getting the "best deal anybody can get". Thanks.
#56 of 98 Help with Focus SEL Lease.. Car Man?
Jun 12, 2012 (5:46 pm)
Trying to make a deal on a Focus Sedan SEL w/ 303A, navigation, and winter package. This is my 3rd Focus, but 1st lease. I'm really worried the numbers are bad.
The Ford package discounts are throwing off my calculations. The MSRP is $24,555 but that is after the package and sync discounts on the window sticker ($365 and $395, respectively). Dealer says the residual, 58% is based on the non-discounted $25315. Does that make sense??
I'm being offered $316/month, 58%, 3%, $449 due at signing for 36/10,500. Selling price is supposedly $23,100 after $250 rebate. Is 3% the current buy rate?
I'm in Detroit, and they say I'm doing better than X-Plan, but just barely. Leasing makes sense for me this time, but I much prefer purchasing. These numbers are making me so nervous!!

Hi again Car_man,
Do you have the lease money factor and residual for a 36-month lease of a Focus ST Hatchback with 12K miles per year? Or is there another program with a better combination of LMF and residual? I only drive about 6K miles/year so I could go down on mileage too if they offer it. Thanks again!

Hi Ben. Ford Credit's December base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Focus ST Hatchback with 12,000 miles per year are 2.25% to 2.5% (varies by region) and 52%.
You should be able to do a lease with 10,500 miles per year. The residual value for that would be 1% higher.

Hi Car Man,
Was hoping you could please give me the Ford Credit January residual and money factors for both 24 and 36 month leases as 10.5k miles per year for the 4 Door Focus SE. Thanks in advance.
