Lease pricing, how much do you pay?

Hello everyone,

My lease on my current car is up in about a month, and new car shopping is on the way. I hate the dealership, and I hate negotiating prices at dealers..but I love new cars!

I try to find as much information as possible on pricing, etc. before walking into a dealership with regards to lease prices. Usually I have friends or family that has a car similar to what I want.. but the MKC I know nobody with one.

I am either looking at a Jeep (Grand Cherokee) or this MKC. The Jeep lease pricing is a little high for the Jeep I want (leather, heated seats, etc.) so I want to compare the MKC pricing to it.

With the internet and being anonymous, do you care to share your lease details? Price, downpayment, lease term, mileage, vehicle, etc.?


Thanks!

Hey Troy,
These are old numbers but they still apply to some degree. 2015 MKC Reserve, list $45715, downpayment, $6,000, 39 month lease with 1,000 mi./mo. at $414/month. The lease rate was 1.9%. I believe my residual to be $24,000. I was considered a Ford family member which "discount" was supposedly applied toward the residual - something I have no way of verifying.
I hope this helps. You'll find a bit of reluctance from the forum members to share this information. I have had mine since mid-July of 2014 (very early adopter!) and still look forward to driving it daily! Good luck!

I bought mine, so I am unable to advise, but you can use the internet and search for "lease a 2016 MKC" and email your local dealers to see what they are offering. Good luck with whatever you decide on, we might be biased here on your decision .

Thanks Bruce and MSM, I understand the reluctance of posting financial information but figured I'd have a bit more luck since it's mostly anonymous. I do love the car and would love to drive one, but as always ultimately it comes down to price. Enjoy the rest of your day!

I have been leasing cars for over 30 years. A rule of thumb that I have gone by is NEVER put any money down on a lease. You are just prepaying or buying down the payments. It is not like financing a car, since there is no equity in a lease (typically). I did zero money down, using the Ford x-plan and my least payment is about $460 for 36 months. Essentially the same thing I was paying previously on my Ford Escape, but the MKc has a much higher residual value.
As for the Jeep vs. the MKc. I am sure there are just as many people that feel the Jeep is a POS too. Do your own research, and make up your own mind. Keep in mind, the Jeep Cherokee (not the Grand Cherokee) is built on the same platform as the Dodge Dart.

I do do research. All cars have the potential to be a POS. Its how the company handles saddling you with that POS that makes the difference at least to me. Some people LOVE their Jeeps, some think they are a POS.
You take your chances with any car regardless of reviews or what others say about it.

Its the company that makes the difference and if they take responsibility for their mistakes/defects/problems. In my case Lincoln has not. If you read others on here, they also have not, I'm clearly not an isolated incident and I can have an opinion based on my experience. Your experience may be totally different.

Buyer beware, that's all. Ultimately its up to you. And if you choose it hopefully you will find it to be of the quality you expect and trouble free! Good luck with your choice.

First post

I leased an MKC Reserve Luxe color sands/expresso interior with Climate Package and 4WD with a sticker price of 44485.

I think I got an incredible deal, I put down the tax plus first payment and a couple of hundred bucks for 2000 total. My payment is 379 a month. I think these deals are everywhere to be had. I don't think I would have leased this car and a higher priced and would have leased a BMW X3. But the lease was so much better on the MKC.

By the way I love my MKC. It might not do anything spectacular (ok the seats are awesome) but just ions nicer user experience then my 2013 BMW X1.

Hey Adameyeball,
You did indeed get a great deal on your lease! My problem was I bought only the 3rd MKC delivered in my area - a true "first adopter" - and I wanted that particular package and didn't want to wait. I'm still happy 20 months later. At the time I was still working as a Realtor and the MKC fit me perfectly! I retired in June last year and it works even better for me now!

Understood. New debuts always come with a premium. That is why they wanted more for a 2016 BMW X1 then a 2016 X3. Just crazy. Regardless the MKC is a 50 -100 a month less then both with more in it. Great lease value.
