OK Car_man, Look at these numbers.
2007 Cadillac STS Base with Moonroof. 39 month lease, 10K per year.
Base Cap Cost-40,000
I pay tax, 595.00 acquisition fee,tags and ist payment
My payment is 466.00/month including tax.
Now I just read there is 2500.00 dealer cash as of 2/1/07. Did I leave some money on the table? If so my negotiations are not complete. I appreciate your analysis. Thanks, Wayne.

i'm looking at a 2007 Suburban LTZ loaded...they are citing for 36 months, 15k, a 59% residual and 6.9% APR. does that sound right? The money factor seems really high.

Thanks in advance for your help...

So the offer is up to $6,750 off for a 06' STS ????
That means with my GM discount I could knock off $13-14K off total. Well I might have to look into that.

Hi Rockylee, I am waiting for a posting on my 07 STS Lease from the staff but can verify that they are stepping up on 06 models. Rocky, I undersatnd that a GM employee can give a discount to individuals? I have not owned an American car in 30 years(BMWS) and so much like the STS am getting a Caddy.

Yeah GM employees can give a discount to friends. My father retired from GM/Delphi and heard about the "GM In Driveway" or GMID. I guess in more recent times they started running that promotion more ? I know back then they only allowed employyes to do it at certain times often at the ned of the year and back then it had restriction on what products it could be offered. I never knew until recently what they call it now days but it appears GM, has expanded the program from the chatter I read on this site. I'm not sure if the GMID is at actual GMS or GM supplier discounts since my family hasn't done one. I will have to ask my father if he knows more about the program and if he's aware he can do it. I know a couple of friends back home in Michigan, that might ask him for it's use. He of course will have to sign the paperwork for authorization.

Geee, that would be great, please let me know. It makes me feel pretty good about buying American and I also discovered all this secret aura of the German makes is a crock. It has al become a ruse. That Cadillac(base STS) is just a fine well handling car and more comfortable that any foreign made. Wayne

Hey Wayne. A base 2007 Cadillac STS V6 has a spread of around $2,750 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. You were given a $4,195 discount on your car. After the $1,500 lease cash that is currently available on it is taken into account, you were sold this car for right around dealer invoice which is a very good deal. Furthermore, when the the money factor that you were quoted is converted into a lease rate it is right around the 3.95% base rate that GMAC is offering on this car right now. This looks like a very good deal to me.

Hi nickalpher. This particular discussion is for consumers to discuss leasing the Cadillac STS. Please post any questions that you have about leasing a Chevrolet Suburban in this discussion: "Chevrolet Suburban: Lease Questions". Thanks. The lease rate that you were quoted for this truck is correct. You're right, it is not very attractive. General Motors has been able to get away with not providing a lot of lease support on the Suburban since it was redesigned.
