Hey UpNComing,


Being a GM at a VW dealer, maybe you can help me out...  I'm looking at leasing a new Passat.  I drove the 3.6SE this past weekend and loved it.  Problem is, there's next to no lease information on it out on the web for the V6 and I didn't get too far into it with the sales guy.  Is the money factor and residual on that model pretty similar to the 2.5?  I'd be looking to lease for 3 years and 15K miles.  Also, my score is around 700 if that would affect anything.  Thanks in advance!

Money factor is .00050 (1.2% apr) and residual is 51%.  Currently there is no incentive for the VR6.  700 score will get you an automatic tier a approval as long as you have previous paid auto history.


*Edited for calculation on apr.
