Usually, Mercedes-Benz Financial has massive specials in November/December to close the year. Another good time is during model change f.e from 2010 models to 2011 - usually happens around August-September. But don't get worried, that you have to wait the whole year to get good deals, because from month to month they always put some specials on some certain models - you just need to watch. The next specials update will be on February 1st. There is a good chance that ML will get some good deals, because it's a second best selling class after E-Class. If you are looking for ML - I recommend to wait until February.

This is as good of a deal as I've seen posted. That's over $6108 off an MSRP of $51,325, or almost 12%. (Sale price of 45216.36, adding back the $2K MB lease cash.) Do you have a fleet discount of anything? This looks like an employee discount pricing.
#685 of 1613 Leasing ML 350
Jan 16, 2010 (11:01 am)
I am looking at leasing a 2010 ML 350
Should I wait until after 2/01/2010 for a better dealing position. I just turned in a GL450 and they charged me fees for over mileage and disposition fee of 595.00 totalling 1300.00. If I get into another mercedes this will be waived.
What are my best negotiating points to keep my payments in low 500 and keeping my out of pocket expenses around 4000.00?
Thanks so much for your advise and assistance. I am willing to get the deal done this weekend.

If you lease another Benz, your disposition fee $595 + tax will be waived by Mercedes-Benz Financial. However your over-mileage will not. Dealer can work this amount into your new deal.
If you have something to drive, then I recommend to wait until Feb. 1st.
Your best negotiating points is to shop around. This way you make Dealers compete for your business. You should let your Dealer know, that you are willing to stay with them only if they are competitive with other MB Dealers, but they will be your first choice, because you dealt with them in the past and like their service. This approach will make your Dealer to be more aggressive to earn your business, willingly give you a bigger discount, knowing that you're shopping around.

Hey murphydog. The $2,000 incentive that I mentioned is paid by Mercedes-Benz. You should be able to negotiate a nice dealer discount on top of that.

Yes. I was turning in my R350 and they gave me fleet discount. I called and emailed about 10 dealers (luckily in Southern Ca you can do that). Most responded by email. The deal I did I never even went into the dealer. It was all by phone and fax and they brought the car to me and took my old one away.

Thank you very much, Car_man. I was able lease three ML350 4Matic 36 months, 15,000 miles with $1850 paid at lease signing for tag, 1st month lease, fee.
Two at MSRP = 56,550 - $692 per month- had tag trasfer from GLs
Third at MSRP = 55,000 - $685 per month- new tag
MB is charging over millage for 2 GLs $2668 & $5414. Does GAP insurance cover for over millage?

Hi- I recently leased a ML 350 4wd w/ P 1 package, runners, heated front seats, and upgraded wood wheel for 39 months, 15K miles for 750 per month including sales tax. Paid only first month payment at signing, all else was rolled in and the free maintenance was included. The 750 per month also included 6K in rolled in lease payments that were left over from a previous leased car we turned in to get the ML 350.

GAP insurance covers the car - if it's totaled and you owe more to the bank than it's worth. It comes free if you lease through MB Financial. It does not cover the over mileage.
If you have over-mileage - just roll it into the new lease.
