yeah im waiting, however i might change my mind to the dodge challenger, i test drove one and the v8 blew my mind... about $200 cheaper than the cts. however im worried about rwd and summer tires. the charger is even a better choice comes with a lot more options than the cts adaptive cruse control, collision warning, heated and cooled cup holders and only 340 a month! i dunno i'm really confused dunno what to choose, thank god i still have some time on my current lease... waiting for the auto show hopefully something catchs my eye. i also noticed that all the cts coups here in michigan esp around Detroit are driven by some old old old people... not sure if i dig that

#916 of 976 CTS-V lease
Mar 21, 2013 (8:39 pm)
Looking to lease a 2013 CTS-V Sedan. Can someone help me with the residual? Is it still 53%. What kind of payments would I expect with 5k down and a tax rate of 8.25 and a sticker of about 72k? I am looking for a 39 month lease with15k miles.

I can help you mpnx2. Ally's March base lease rate and residual value for a 39-month lease of a 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are 2.3% and 53%.
When negotiating your deal on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $2,690 cash incentive that General Motors is currently providing on 36-month leases of it.
I see that you are considering making a $5,000 down payment on your lease. I always advise consumers not to make large down payments on leased vehicles. Those who do risk losing part or all of the money that they laid out if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. Even though it means that your monthly payment will be higher it's much safer to go with a zero down lease.

Thanks for the advice Car man. I did stumble upon your advice regarding the downpayment in an article here at Edmunds.com. I am working several dealers for numbers currently. Knowing of the 2690 incentive helps a bunch. Funny I didnt see that incentive listed on the Cadillac website.

You're very welcome mpnx2. Good luck and make sure to stop back and let us all know how everything turns out.

Hi Car_man, thanks for all your helpful information on here. I'm looking at leasing a 2013 CTS-V Wagon. Looking at the manual transmission, which there aren't many out there so it would probably come from out of state.
I'm wondering what the lease rate and residual would be for 24 month or 36 month, 15k per year. I can put money down, but based on your previous post, it seems like the zero down is the best way to go.
Is there anything timing wise to be aware of? i.e. March, April

I'm sure Car_man will give you specifics, but as of a few weeks ago it was a 2.3% lease rate and 53% residual for 15k miles at 36 months. Be aware, there is no longer a 2% reduction in residual for manual trans, and that was new as of March, so make sure the dealer is aware (had to remind mine).
I had to do a build order to get the car I wanted, you might want to consider the same. The dealer I used sells a lot of Vs and drop ships them across the county. PM me for details if you're interested. As far as I know, they're still accepting orders for 2013MY.
BTW, I picked up my wagon last week. You will love this car, it's so much fun.
#923 of 976 Lease on a 2013 CTS Premium Caddy
Mar 29, 2013 (12:26 pm)
Car man, I would appreciate your assistance. Looking at two vehicles. Audi 4 and Cadillac CTS Premium.
In this forum, I will ask only about the Caddy.
I have an MSRP of $50,530 and a price lower than invoice at $46,171.
Dealer IMR Contribution of $248.00 plus LMA Group Contribution of $496.00, plus tags and fees will be paid cash.
Looking for a 24 month lease. 10,000 or 12,000 miles per year. Could you give me a ball park figure of possible monthly payments?
Taxes in Florida of 6.5% (county .5%) would be applied on first $5,000 and 6% would apply on the balance. Should the tax be paid cash or added to the monthly payment?
