#110 of 197 2007 Ford edge lease end
Jul 27, 2010 (7:55 am)
First time on this forum
I have a 2007 Edge which is up come October 23rd, My buyout is 16,300. My car only has 20,000 miles but I am torn between buying it out or leasing a new 2011 providing I can afford it. Looking to lease a 2011 Limited with the 301A package. I have no more than 4000.00 out the door to put down and want a payment of no more than 420.00 per month. 36-39 months
Is this doable??

Anyone purchase one of the new 2011's yet? Really looking at these - pretty nice! Love to hear other experiences.

I leased my 2011 Edge last Monday. I see quite a difference in fit and finish compared to my 2007 I had. I am loving this car, the technology is amazing. You won't be sorry if you buy one

Can you provide the details of your lease deal? I am very interested in a 2011.

The 2011 Ford Edge rebate just went from $1k to $1,500. We are thinking of ordering one (interested in a limited, without the sunroof and this is never a dealer-ordered configurations I guess).
One thing the dealer warns about is the risk of their being no rebates available (or less of a rebate) by the time comes in from the factory (and estimated 8-week window). It would be really lame to order a Limited with only the specific optiosn we want (rather than splurge on a top-equipped '11 Edge) in an effort to save money, if today's rebates are gone and not replaced in 8 wks (near the holidays).
I guess I'd ask, has anyone has had dealer rebates actually "go away", before taking delivery of the vehicle.

There are some Limited without sunroof in Michigan. I was told that if you order from a smaller dealership that they can give you the rebate that was going on when you ordered your vehicle or if the rebate has increased when your vehicle comes in you can take that rebate. What color are you getting?

Well it's done - we did it!
The rebates just changed on the '11 Edge, for the worst. The rebate had been $1,000; then, just last week, a second rebate of $500 went into effect making $1,500 in rebates available total...
I was quoted a sale price of $37,761 for an '11 Edge Limited, with option package 302A & rubber floor mats last week. The MSRP on the car is $41,920. The sale price included the $1,500 in rebates. I was given the price last week, and when I went in to negotiate the price would not budge - they contended the sale price given was the invoice price minus the rebates. We left, because the car is more than we planned to spend and had to think about it... plus getting one price with no further negotiation is odd to us so we weren't ready to pull the trigger right away.
Fast-forward to this week - the $1,000 rebate has suddenly gone away from the Ford website and now there's just the $500 rebate. I was really shocked. I now knew that the sale price I was given the week before really was the best price I could get at this point, even if I started fresh at another dealer. Ordering an Edge was definitely out because this abrupt change in rebate amounts showed how you can't count on rebates to be there when the ordered vehicle comes in.
, the dealer honored th
Fortunately, even though the $1k rebate from Ford went away, the dealer honored the sale price given to me the week before (by their internet sales person). I thought that was really good of them to do that (maybe they'll back-date the paperwork or something so they can still get the rebate...or maybe they'll eat the $1k, who knows). I know some dealers are scummy and will offer "1 day only" prices and stuff like that. These guys said they'd honor the price given to me until the car sold.
For those buying right now, I would ask the dealer if they would honor the recent full $1,500 rebate. If not, then I would wait until the rebates improve... One thing this dealer said is that Ford is cutting back on '11 Edge production, and that they weren't getting any more until the end of the year. But she said this before I pulled the final trigger (maybe a slight sales ploy).

Here's what a dealer quoted me for leasing a '11 Edge with 302A package:
12k mi/year: 1500 down, $579/mo.
15k mi/year: 1500 down, $599/mo.
Both leases offers were for 39 months. I ended up buying from a different dealer. Both dealers are in MA.

On Sept. 27th I leased my 2011 Edge Limited with 301A package plus rubber mats for 2636.00 out of pocket (including first month payment, minus DMV fees) and a 420.00 month payment for 36 months. I was pretty happy with that deal and loving the car
This is for a 10,500 miles per year
