That 47, 800 must be the MSRP ?
Why not buy it with that hugh down or less ? Or do you need a tax break IRS..business ? That's a mighty large down certainly for a lease.
When you lease, you need to negotiate the price down just like you are buying a car, so you need to do that if you must lease. You will get then a much better Monthly lease payment, and don' t let them play with that bring back value. You may not even want the car at the end of three years.
You can buy that car outright for about 10% or better off the MSRP with some strong negotiating on your part..that makes the car about 43000 plus T&L, minus whatever you want to put down...and get that 0.9 APR financing(that's cheap money) to boot with good credit and maybe under $10000 down. I think on financing, a loan of EACH $10, 000 at 0.9% =$170 month payment.Multiply x 3 for $30000, etc. You can finance $35000 for under $600 a month payment at that %0.9. Put the cash savings into a Vanguard fund, and make some money on it or put it in your 401K/IRA.
What city are you in ?
Just my 10 cents worth..you asked. Hope others will chime in here.

Thanks for your input - am putting down the money upfront because it would be easier for me to do so, no real reason - just want to get payments out of the way. Basically I want the ability to have the car for 3 years and either move on to another car or if I love it - buy it. The 47,800 isn't MSRP, dealer brought that down about $1,000, so was originally more like $49k which for a 2013 didn't think would happen. I am looking at Ira Lexus Danvers, MA - thanks again for your thoughts.

Thanks for the inputs. the Original MSRP is 49789. Yes it comes with new car warranty.
But I decided it pass it on. I would rather pay 1-2K more for a 'real' new car.

No way to tell since you have a trade involved and we don't know the real actual cash bank value(appraisal) of it.

Sorry for late response. I did buy this vehicle and just wanted to update the post here for closure of the loop.
Dealer did drop price at once as it felt in the posting on forum. It took few hours with multiple calls. From 38500 to 37500 bottom he took 1/2 hour. Initial drop from 40,800 to 38500 was really tough.
I finally end up buying it on the same day at 37500+tax+$55Doc fee = On road around 40500. I got 0.9% for 48 months and 3 year 100,000 mile CPO.
I am not sure whether it was the right deal, but at the end I got a closer to very new and cleaner vehicle which was regularly maintained and show it in car fax.
