A very well kept secret for lease companies: The Money Factor!
You might have never heard of it, but that doesn't mean it's not there. An auto lease is also another area where the auto sales industry makes a lot of money.
The interest on a lease, also known as the money factor, is represented as a decimal digit, for example: .00123, and is constantly skipped over.
Many times the finance department of a dealership, more commonly at higher end brands, will mark up the money factor to the maximum they are allowed.
