Hi. Trying to find out money factor and residual numbers for the 2010 Prius IV with nav. Thanks for your help. My 2007 Prius is coming off lease in March so I got to get moving.

Karate19, I'm thinking of a 2010 lease and was curious about your 2007 experience, specifically the mileage allowance. In your case, are you having to sweat staying below the allowed miles in your lease?
Does anyone know the typical cost of buying extra miles in advance, at lease inception?
#47 of 393 2010 Prius Lease in NJ

I would like to lease a 2010 Prius, model 3, with the solar sunroof package for 36 months and 15k miles/year. The MSRP is $28,580 and I want a selling price at invoice ($26,000).
The dealership provided me with an interest rate of 1.8% and a residual of 70%. That would result in a monthly payment (including tax) of $215 with $1245 due at signing (first month, bank fee, doc fee, dmv). Can you confirm the interest rate (MF) and residual?
Obviously if this combination of residual and MF is accurate, this might be one of the greatest leases of all time.

That residual looks high considering how far into the 2010 model year we are. Personally, I'd take that offer and run for the hills.
BTW, back in 2003 I got an Infiniti M45 on a 3 year lease for $238 with $2000 down. For a $52,000 car, that was one of the best leases ever

Actually, ignore what I said. Just checked and it looks like a 72% residual on a 12,000 mile / 36 month lease, so 70% for the extra 9,000 miles would be right in line.
