Hi, looking at the ST as a possible replacement for my 2003 Ranger with 250k miles.
Haven't seen any lease options, any comments?
Thanks,
Jim

In the Focus ST Owners Supplement the words used in there state someone who is Purchasing or Leasing.

I tried leasing when I got mine because I wanted to be able to just hand in the keys in case something much better was out. Unfortunately, the 2 year lease monthly payment was 2x that of my 6 year loan and the 3 year lease was 50% more. I could have almost bought it with a 3 year loan for the same price. They weren't even trying. The residual was about 15K on my 28K car for 2 years, 14K for 3 years. Apparently that first year's brutal :)

being a first year production, and being a hot item, it would not be in the best interest of a dealer to lease one of these, due to it would not resale for much
