Thank you for your reply. I am not being charged the acquisition fee.
One note...Saab direct mailed a $1000 cash voucher in November to randomly selected households and GM direct mailed a $2000 voucher. This bonus cash is for purchase or lease.
Since I did not receive this, I have contacted Saab Fin., Saab incentives, and Saab customer service. All have advised me to talk to the dealer and push them to contact Saab for this bonus cash. While I am not optimistic, I have been told that the right dealer may be able to receive this. Any others with insight? Has anyone received this? I am coming the end of my second Saab lease (9-5 in 1999 and 9-3 in 2003), and am very satisfied with the vehicles.
Thank you for any reply and happy holidays to all.

I have the $2000 voucher, but did not know about the $1000 voucher from Saab, I wonder if they can be used together, or if the Saab coupon expired. The GM coupon is good until 1-3-2006. I see the experts on the board all saying that Saab has a 595 acquisition fee. I guess that excludes some states? Even when you think you have all the information, it is still a shell game!

I'm in the midst of negotiating on a 06 9-3 ARC. It's got the Premium and Cold Weather package. Here are the terms as of this afternoon:
2 Years, 12K miles, 59% Resid.
Cap Cost: 27,665
Money Factor: .00164
270 per month
I get the GM Supplier discount, as well as, trading in my girlfriends 99 Cabrio (getting 4,500 from dealer). Is there anything I should negotiate down or is this a fair deal?

RED FLAG FOR YOU....Saab dealers have NO authority to "waive"the bank acquisition fee.They might absorb it as an equivalent discount you could have otherwise negotiated on the selling price the lease was based on,,,but I repeat dealers have no way to concede that fee on behalf of S.F.S.C.

Thank you for the information. I have not yet approached the dealer regarding this acq. fee disinformation, however, that being said, the numbers I have been quoted for this car are, by all accounts, very aggressive.
If the dealer is able to secure access to the $2000 voucher, I will lease the car immediately.
As mentioned, I am currently in my second consecutive Saab lease, 9-5 and now 9-3. I have had minimal problems, even though the 9-3 was first model year(drivers side window derailed and was fixed immediately). I recommend test driving a Saab to any and all who ask.

I ordered a 9-3 2.0T MT, Premium pkg, and moonroof in October and it will be ready to pickup Jan. 3rd or 4th. I was wondering if anyone had a line on incentives or rates for January. The $500 bonus cash expires Jan. 3rd so I'd like to jump on that if there isn't anything better coming down the pipe.
Anyone know if GM or Saab will have some promotion after their "Fly Saab Holiday Event"?
