EDIT: Please see my follow-up post below: Deal check on 2021 Subaru Forester Touring in Colorado - #7 by cplaz
I am trying to make these numbers work, and I was able to achieve the pricing sheet a dealer in Denver (80211 ZIP) sent me by adding a $500 “down payment.”
This is on a 2021 Forester Touring. The dealer is quoting for a 36 mo, 12k mile per year lease:
$33,602 after discount, but then adding in $599 for a windshield replacement protection plan for a
$34,201 sale price (7.3% off MSRP)
Their pricing sheet indicates $448/mo with $450 cash due, $432/mo with $1,000 cash due, and $402/mo with $2,000 cash due.
This calculator is my attempt to replicate the $400/mo pricing, but I get there with $1,600 drive-off. I would like to minimize drive-off to first month and avoid capitalizing any other payments.
What am I missing?
