Hi nicked. VW Credit's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 Tiguan SE AWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00133 and 49%, respectively.
When negotiating your lease on this truck, make sure to take advantage of the $1,000 cash incentive that is currently available on it.
I would be happy to work up a sample lease payment on the exact Tiguan that you are interested in for you if you provide me with its MSRP and selling price.

I saw an SEL that stickered for 36,000 dollars and a selling price of 34500. Can you help me figure this out?
I'm looking for a 12000 mile lease for 3 years.

I went to a south NJ dealer and they told me while the MF is .00133 the residuals are now 44%. With $1500 down for an MSRP of 28,875 the sales price would be $26,300 including the $1k VW incentive. He then came up with a price of $453 per month. Did the residual go down that much and isn't that monthly quote riduculous? Any dealerships out there who negotiate in good faith.

I recommend you set a comfortable price for yourself that you would be willing to pay, subtract $10/month off of it, and tell the dealer that that is what you were offered and what you're willing to pay. If they want your business they'll come back with a reasonable counteroffer, hopefully within the range of what you're comfortable with anyway. That's what I did and got a decent deal from the first place I walked into. You decide how much you want to pay, and let them figure out how to price it with the money factor, residual, etc. Count your money, don't count theirs.

Your advice is sound but my problem right now is twofold a) am I being realistic to begin with ($400 to $410 mos with $1500 down for 3 yrs at 15k) and b) the dealerships I have been going to (5 and counting in South NJ) have been non-negotiable period. No give back, nothing.
I just read in the WSJ that on average, VW has 115 days worth of inventory on hand so you would think they want their product moved..no dice for me..I am so disappointed b/c I have only until 5/31 to pick up a new car...

Yes, I am very surprised that VW is not offering better deals. Last year this time, they were offering so much better deals. The economy is even worse now and they have stricter numbers now. They are not bad, but certainly like last year this time.
For example, I could have leased a Passat Komfort for cheaper than the Jetta. The Tiguan was leasing at a better deal then too. Not less than the Jetta, but was decent.
They really to offer some deals. Get the deals going, get the cars moving.
Now is not a time to hold back!
In fact my dealer wants to sell me a new car, however, I still need to transfer my current lease first.

toddh3: Well, I got my SE w/ 4-Motion for $395 with $1200 down, including all taxes, DMV fees, etc. (but I have only 10k). I wouldn't even bother stopping by most of the places. Just call and see which one gives you the best offer. I got mine from Freehold VW, if you're interested. I wouldn't recommend them outright because of a couple of minor issues, but overall they were OK.

Appreciate all of your comments. Since the MF and Residuals are hard nos that the dealer can't touch, the only part of the sale they have any control over is the actual capitalized sale price. Also, I wonder if the lease nos I am receiving are based upon the MSRP as opposed to the sale price when they compute the monthly figures.
Bottom Line: I have no idea how these VW dealerships stay in business b/c they refuse to move cars...Also, I can't justify to myself paying $450 a month for a VW that I could pay a little more for an Audi A4.
