#356 of 473 2012 Prius 4 with solar roof and middle side moulding
May 20, 2012 (9:38 pm)
I'm looking to lease the above, my first leased vehicle and have shopped around 3 dealerships in LA area.
Santa Monica are offering me this on 12k miles per annum.
$420.96 + tax = $457.79
I feel this is pretty good but would really appreciate any expert information before I sign on the dotted line tomorrow ! I hear step two, the 'Finance chap' is the person to be wary of !? I am so tired of the 'battle' always believing that getting a new car ought be a pleasure ! I sincerely thank you in anticipation of any wise advice and support you may offer..JBP7

I'm in North Carolina,,,,and was offered $369 includes tax, no money down, 39 month lease, 12k miles.... Carolinas sales tax rate is 3%.
The lease has to make sense....if it does not you are better off purchasing the vehicle.

Car Man et al.,
In the market. Leasing a Plug In Advanced in the next few weeks.
What money factor and residual is TFS providing?
Is it ever worthwhile to find a bank to do a leasing transaction rather than using dealer financing?

I can't find the money factor in the fine print. Perhaps they changed it since your last post. Can you tell me Toyota's current MF and depreciation (3 year lease) for a Prius package two? Tier-1 credit. Thank you.
#361 of 473 Did I get a Good Lease Deal on my New 2012 Prius 2?
Sep 06, 2012 (9:28 pm)
I just closed a Lease deal for a 3 year/60,000 mile lease on a new 2012 Prius 2 this evening.
The MONEY FACTOR for the new 2012 Prius 2 is .00142
The current lease on my 2010 Toyota Camry LE was coming to an end in 3 months on December 12th and I needed to turn in the vehicle because it already has an an 11,000 mile "overage" on it. When I initially leased it back in 2009, I negotiated the lease with 18,000 miles per year for 3 years with a total of 54,000 miles.
I was able to lease the 2012 Prius 2 in Blizzard Pearl White for 3 years/60,000 miles. I wanted the 60,000 miles because I drive a lot and I put between 20,000 to 24,000 miles per year on my vehicle. I couldn't do otherwise on the mileage selection that I made.
The dealership rolled in the last 4 payments of the lease which was a total of $624.04 and also rolled in the mileage overage charges which was a total of $1,647.90 into the new Prius 2 lease vehicle.
I was ALSO able to get the Agreed Value Price for the Prius 2 for $24,033.36 which was around $1,240 LESS than the MSRP Price of around $25,273 which also included the destination charges in the MSRP.
The dealer showed me their Dealer Invoice Price for the Prius 2 that I wanted and it was around $24,200.
I put $4,000 down for the Prius 2 and my current payment is $404 per month which includes the Gap Insurance.
The $4,000 that I put down includes the:
1. Title & Registration Fees
2. Capitalization Cost Reduction
3. First Monthly Payment
4. Tax on Capitalized Cost Reduction
5. Administration Fee
Is the 3 Year/60,000 mile Lease for $404 per month that I got on the new 2012 Prius 2 a good deal considering that I was upside down in my old lease vehicle???
Did I get a good overall lease deal or did I overpay for everything???
