I think that Chevy paying off your Toyota is a great deal. As for $389 per month, unless you're getting the SS, I'm not so sure about the deal. Keep in mind that my deal was for the SS which is another $5k expensive. At least here in Los Angeles, there is a huge supply of non-SS Trailblazers and dealers are bending over backwards to sell these.

Let me know if you get the SS down to $410 a month for 12k/24 months. I picked up mine last night and really only paid 1st month and DMV fees (registration, etc...) I would get them to waive the $595 to GMAC and the security and documentation fees. If the dealer here (NY) can basically waive these fees, then they are probably taking from you up front to add to their profit. There are literally about $3000-$4000 worth of dealer rebates on the LT right now. I am happy with my $389, and I shopped around and am a tough buyer, noone was going lower for this truck, several dealers questioned if the deal was for real, and cautioned that I would never get it. Thanks for your feedback!
#196 of 297 Need June Lease Numbers for Trailblazer LT SS
Jun 01, 2006 (9:05 am)
Now that June is here, what are the residual and lease rates on a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer LT SS? I need the numbers for 24 and 36 months at 12K and 15K miles per year. Are they still the same as published previously (4.9% lease rate, 66% residual for 24 months, 57% for 36 months)? Also, does the $1500 cash rebate still apply to this vehicle in June (SE region)? If these rates still apply this month, I will probably lease this vehicle (with no money down, of course)! Thanks again.

Hey andre1. If you were to lease any 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer through GMAC right now for 24 months with 15,000 miles per year, its base lease rate and residual value should be 4.9% and 66%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease should be 4.9% and 57%. If you were to lease with only 12,000 miles per year, the 24 month residual value would increase by 1% and the 36 month residual value by 3%. I believe that GM is currently providing $1,250 lease cash on this truck.

#198 of 297 Are these lease numbers good?
Jun 13, 2006 (9:56 am)
I was given a 39 month 12k lease payment quote of $440 today on a 06 TBSS LT with an MSRP of 40,800. I have to put the first payment down and security deposit. They are giving me supplier pricing of $36,730 with an additional MFG rebate of $2,500. The truck is fully loaded (Navigation/Bose) and lacks only the rainsense wipers. They are telling me there is absolutely no negotiating room is this true? Is this a good deal?

That deal is not bad, but you could have done a little better. If you go to www.fitzmall.com or www.carmax.com, you will see bottom line prices in print for available 06 Trailblazers (including the SS). You can use these published prices for your local dealer to try and beat. The lease numbers for 36 months and 15K miles per year are 57% residual and 4.9% interest. Based on this information, your payment should be in the high $300's instead of mid $400's per month, and that's for 36 months, not 39. The dealer probably marked up the lease numbers to get your payment to $440.

Hi car_buyer3. GM's supplier purchase price is a reasonable price for this truck. Just make sure that the dealer that you are working with is using GMAC's base lease rate of 4.9% to calculate your truck's lease payment and you should be good to go.

Welcome justwonderin1. Since you are new to the world of leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.
Once you have checked out these articles and understand the basics of leasing, stop back in this discussion. If you provide me with the MSRP and selling price of the truck that you want along with how long you want to lease it for and how many miles per year you need to be able to drive it I will be happy to give you an idea of what its monthly payment should be like right now.
