Maybe you should check out what South East Toyota does before you try and tell me I am wrong. SET is completely different than any other region in the US because the guy that owns the franchises never sold his rights back to Toyota.
Plus the fact that I actually executed a deal kind of proves me right, dontcha think?
So when you go to lease a Toyota in the SET they have something called "Residual Assistance", which is not a deduction due to taking less miles or something like that, it is a straight adder to the calculated residual. I believe the residual is not calculated on options but the assistance helps to offset it.

Having just leased a III with NAV this past weekend here in LA, I would say you would be fortunate to get one for $400 with tax.
Also, something you may not know, but Toyota doesn't include GAP insurance in their leases...you need to buy it in the finance department (or maybe your insurance company can cover you)...they charge about $15-17/month for that...so tack that on to the above payment.

#338 of 473 2011 Prius III Lease - Thoughts?
Nov 13, 2011 (7:48 pm)
Have an deal on the table for a 2011 Prius III with Nav and Solar / Moon roof. $26,850 purchase price, 12,000 miles, 36-month lease, $15,800 residual for $385 / month (including taxes etc.).
There is a good chance I guy the car off the lease but wanted the optionality of a lease. Any thoughts on that deal? Any more levers I can try to pull?

Any news on what the MF and Residuals for December are? I was told it's 0.0002 and 57% for a prius II. Any ideas what it is for a prius III? (36 months/36,000 miles)

Hi no to co,
I was quoted 0.00025 and 60%.
Not sure if this is correct since no movement in this thread for a while.
