#199 of 735 Re: Volvo S60 2007 Lease Using Ford A-Plan [carforevan]

I'm in Ohio, and have a Ford Motor relative which qualifies me for Ford's A-Plan (i.e. special pricing). Don't want to put anything down on an S60 lease if I don't have to, just want to see how to negotiate the lowest lease price and buyout if the A-Plan already provides fixed discounts and buyout ... I'm trying to determine whether there is really any need to negotiate when using the A-Plan.

'04s are going for $24 - 25K. Show me where I can buy one for $15K and I'll take all you can find!
A friend at work just bought an '04 too and he got it for around $25.
KBB has the '04s with 36K miles at $25K too.

well, I can't buy any for $15k, because i'm not a dealer.
maybe edmunds is wrong, i don't know. i don't work for them, either.
HOWEVER, I can tell you that, back in '04, I was offered a leftover brand new 2.5T with premium and sport for $25,500. So buying a used one now for that price seems WAY off.
Also, just looking at carsdirect now, I see they are offering '06 2.5Ts with premium for $27k. So I'm pretty sure your buddy with the newly purchased '04 got taken.

Maybe he did get taken, but he seems to be a savvy buyer. Or maybe he rounded up, although that seems odd too.
Bottom line is I can't imagine being able to buy a three year old S-60 w/premium for less than $17.5 k, but we'll see. Who knows if I'll even want to buy it at that point.
Sort of wishing I'd looked at picking up one of those '06s though....
Are you an S-60 owner, and if so, how do you like yours?

no. I was an S70 owner up until recently (which, by the way, was a 3-year-old loaded T5 with 30k miles that I got for $20k). I looked at the S60 as a replacement, but it just didn't quite do it for me. The backseat is tighter than my 70 was and, meanwhile, while driving, I still felt like I was in my 70 (in other words, it didn't make me feel like I'd be getting a new car ... if you know what i mean). I also tested the S80 out of curiosity. I liked the 60 better.

My buyout on a 04 S60, with 36K miles, after a 3 year lease is $17,500. After reading these replies, I guess that sounds pretty good.

#206 of 735 Need Advice : 2007 S60 Lease
Aug 25, 2006 (2:31 pm)
I am hoping someone experienced leasers can assist. I have negotiated the following, and not sure if I can do any better:
2007 S 60 AWD Premium and Climate packages with Navigation. 3 year lease, 15k per month. The deal I have pending at the dealership is, $2500 down, $406.00 per month. I know there are rebates that factor in, and I THINK I am getting a prett good deal. But I am not seasoned, so if anyone can give advice, I would certainly welcome it! Thanks to anyone that replies

I'm looking for a very similar S60 lease deal in California, preferably Southern California. The one dealer I spoke with said the NJ lease prices and CA lease prices are apples and oranges. I have a hard time believing that. Does anyone have any experience or dealer recommendations for SoCal? Thanks!

I think you can do a bit better, alhthough that depends....
Is your $2500 down a cap cost reduction or is it taxes, license and bank fee? Do you know your MSRP and the Selling Price?
Do you have any other dealerships in your area to comparison shop with? If so, take your deal to them and see if someone else will beat it.
