Nov 27, 2007 (1:38 pm)
I am going to be leasing a 2008 Edge Limited in a matter of days as my ordered Edge was shipped from the factory on 11/19. I have actual numbers for a FWD 2008 Edge Limited for a 36 month 36000 mile lease. They are 52% residual, 2% lease rate, $595 acquisition fee, X Plan cap cost less $1000 rebates. Is that specific enough for you? Why don't you ask the dealer for the numbers? You can get MSRP and invoice (w/o ad fees) from Edmunds as well as a link to a lease calculator to double check your dealer's numbers. The rebates vary depending on geographical area as does your local sales tax rate so the best source of information is your local dealer where you would actually be leasing the car. The residuals and lease interest rates vary by term and mileage on the leases. Get actual numbers from the dealer then bring them to this board for comment or to compare to what others are actually getting.

You can't negotiate the residual and the lease interest rate seems about right and not marked up. The only real place you have for negotiation is the cap cost and things like document fees and the like. Please keep in mind the invoice figure you have does not include local or regional advertising costs, so it is probably at least $400-$500 low. If you can get them to use invoice for the cap cost with you getting the $1000 incentives that is probably about as good as you are going to get. The lease I am going to be signing in the next day or two uses X-plan price for the cap cost, I get the rebates, and the residual and lease interest rate are all as per Ford's rates and not marked up by the dealer. I am happy with that deal.
#362 of 792 Somethings Wrong?
Nov 28, 2007 (6:49 pm)
I'm trying to negotiate a lease on a 2008 Edge SEL AWD and this is the deal the dealer has presented:
MSRP - 33685
Selling Price - 31876.95
Rebate - 1000
Down Payment - 2500
Residual - 16,505.65 (49% 39 month lease, 15K miles)
"Startup" costs - 747.89
Monthly Payment zero down 459.45
Monthly Payment with 2500 down 388.78
The math more or less adds up. Howeever, a couple things don't seem right. For one, the residual. I'm seeing posting on here of 50 to 52%, what's with 49%? Second, isn't Ford offering 2% financing one a 36 month lease? And what's with the 39 month lease? Warranty is only 36 months. Last, what is the $747.89 "Startup" cost.
Is there something I'm missing?

Your residual is lower because you want a 15000 mile per year lease. $595 of the startup cost is the acquisition fee.

So I should expect round about $500 over edmunds invoice ?
I know about the X plan but In your opinion what will be the
difference between X-plan & edmunds invoice price.

The advertising fees are different from region to region and/or if the dealer is in a city with a local ad group. I am in a rural area and the ad fees here are a little over $400 as we only have a regional ad group. My ordered Edge arrived yesterday so we should be picking it up today. My dealer will show me the x-plan price on the invoice so I have not seen that yet. I will post my final numbers after the deal is done. One of the nasty things here is that our sales tax is over 8% and we pay it on every lease payment.
