Hi Nicole. According to hand, dandy Google the zip code 07052 is for New Jersey. That falls in Toyota's New York region. Toyota's current New York region buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a base 2011 RAV4 4WD with 15,000 miles per year are an amazingly low .00001 and 60%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.
The numbers for the 2011 Sport 4WD model would be .00001 and 58%.
These residual values aren't as great as they initially appear though. Unlike most banks, TFS publishes residual value percentages only for base models. It places restrictions upon the options that can be residualized. Doing so makes its effective residual values lower than its published percentages initially appear and makes it difficult for individual consumers to work up lease payments on their own.

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.

#509 of 540 RAV 4 acquisition fee and dealer processing
Mar 15, 2012 (6:50 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?
