#351 of 2000 Leasing Mercedes C300 question
Sep 21, 2008 (5:15 pm)
I currently own an 07 Camry. I am upside down about 2000 -2500. I want to lease an 08 or an 09 base model automatic C300, approximate price is 33,000. I am hoping to get my payment UNDER 500. Do you think that is possible. I went to a dealer today and he said he'd try, that it might work. I just want to know if I'm even in the right ball park. Please help. Thank you.
#352 of 2000 Is this a good deal?

I received the following offer from a local dealer. I have not yet obtained the actual selling price, MF or residual, but these are the hard numbers.
C300 Sport, Automatic, MSRP 34900
36 month lease, 12K miles
$650 total down (includes 1st month payment, fees, taxes, etc..)
$459 a month (includes taxes, which are quite high here)
Is this a "good" deal?

To me, it looks like an excellent deal. I live in NJ and was offered 3500 down and $459 per month for a C300 sport with automatic. Which state are you in?

I could probably extrapolate to some ballpark degree, but you really need to know your cap cost, money factor, and residual rate to determine if it's a "good deal".
#357 of 2000 Lease buy back option
Oct 13, 2008 (7:58 am)
I was wondering if all you experts can help and share your thoughts on this for me...would really appreciate it.
I have a Benz 2005 c230 kompressor on a 3 yr lease with Ray Catena, NJ which expires on Nov 2008.
My buy out option price reads 21.5k including taxes, my Benz has only 25,000 miles used on it and is very well taken care off...what are your suggestions - should I buy my Benz out.. interest rate on the buy out option is pretty high at 7.1 apr????? Also do you think I can negotiate the price and the interest rate? With the economy so bad and the state of the auto industry, I was thinking I should be getting better deal than this. What are your thoughts?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
