#657 of 1183 VW 2008 Passat Wagon Komfort lease - deal or not?
Jun 14, 2008 (3:47 pm)
Ok - this has been great reading, but i have never leased a vehicle and want to run some numbers by you all since it seems we are at the end of the 2008 vehicles and perhaps there are great deals to be had. It looks like most people are paying 0 down and that is not the deal we are currently considering -- please advise
$312 month/48 mos.
first month 'free'
maintenance booklet covers all maintenance for 4 yrs (supposedly)
residual is somewhere around $12,300
Thanks in advance!

I am researching a Passat and received the following from a dealer in Florida.
Is this a good deal? When I run the numbers in a lease calculator, it looks like they are selling the car for around $17k to get to that payment.

your deal seems too good to be true! what was the name of the sales person at bayside VW you dealt with? i'm thinking about taking a trip out there from staten island this weekend. considering all the incentives and their advertised "92 hour sale" i can't see why i wouldn't drive the car off the lot! i can see online they still have a lux in the color i want! i would love to tell them i heard about your deal in hopes they can extend the same terms to me
thanks in advance!

yes - that is a phenomenal deal -- I'm having a hard time convincing my local dealer of little to no down payment

I picked up my car last night. I could not believe I was getting this deal until the contract was signed. I thought the dealer was going to pull a fast one on me; so as I was getting the contract from them, I started reading carefully to see all the numbers. -they were honest.
How I got this deal:
I assume I got this deal for the following reasons:
- I was a previous passat owner and purchased from the same dealer.
- I got the owner loyalty rebate
- I have 750+ credit rating
- I usually pay my monthly payments one month in advance. Basically, I was always a month or two ahead in payments.
- Last, I must say the dealer was honest. I dealt with the manager directly. As a saleman, he is one hell of an honest guy.
- I brought business to them, 2 clients already.
You can use my name as a reference. He gave very good deals to my friends as well. -Not as good as mine though. but it was probably for the reasons above. they paid 35 and 40 more then me a month.
Send me an email and I give you the name. I dont think one can provide sale person's name on this forum.
send email to lepia3000hotmail.com and I give you all info you need.
Not all, but must of the sale people at Baysde are good people.

I know its been a couple months...but what was the miles allowance for the Touareg above - 10k? 12k?.
I'm negotiating a Passat Wagon VR6 4motion - the base price is similar to your deal - but I still can't get to the monthly payments.
Neg Price $36,487
$0 drive off
7.75% Tax out here
They added some type of family loyalty thing $1000 discount to get to the price.
Any thoughts - how low can I get this?
#665 of 1183 Lease or Buy VW Passat?
Jun 27, 2008 (5:54 pm)
I am looking at leasing a VW Passat Komfort. So far, best offer in Cincinnati area is as follows:
- MSRP: $30+/-
- Invoice: 26,790
- Monthly: 391
- Miles: 12K
- R/V: 14798 for 12K
- Money: .00024 (57%APR)
- Money down: 0
Based on what you read in media, it's a great time to buy a car. Now that the 09 Passat Wagon is out and the lease deal that's going on, I would expect better pricing and, therefore, better monthly payment. Anyone have any insights or recos to make this work harder? I'm looking for something in the $325-$350 range. Should I wait until later in the year to re-consider? Thanks.

This is what I just got from my dealer for a Passat VR6 4Motion Wagon....the residual seems to be very low.
36 month residual 45%
money factor 0.00056
