Find one on the Hyundai website ... all you see are the "See dealer for details."

You can find the ad on Rosen's website, under "newspaper ads". Footnote mentions aquisition fee and doc fee in addition to the $1299 but does not specify what those amounts are.
I thnk they have weak disclosure laws in IL, because here in WI those type of lease ads always specify all costs in the footnotes.
Local dealer here (Amato) has sign and drive lease on Sonata advertised at $179 per month and fist month free. So I would guess those other fees add about another $800 or so to the upfront costs, making the $99 lease equivalent to the $179 per month sign and drive.

Here you go:
Lease a 2007 Hyundai Sonata GLS A/T for $199/month* for 30 months, $800 customer cash down plus $2,300 HMFC origination support, and $999 due at signing. See your local dealer for lease details.
*The base monthly payment does not include tax, license, registration, options, and the like. This program is effective from March 06, 2007 through April 02, 2007

Note that I said "less than $199". I can get half a dozen cars for $199-$209 a month. I was just curious if anytihng siginificantly less expensive was available.

#149 of 193 Best SUV Lease Deals!
Jul 13, 2007 (6:30 am)
Thought I'd bring some life back to this thread...! What does everyone see as some of the best lease deals currently out there? I'm specifically looking for a Crossover/Midsize SUV, but I'm not particular about the actual brand. The two best deals I've found (for a 24 month / 12k lease / 0-down) are:
1. 07 Infiniti FX35 ($500-$530/month), $40k-$43k MSRP
2. 07 BMW X3 ($510/month), $42k MSRP
Surprisingly, these handily beat a number of other lower MSRP car options.
1. Trailblazer (~$560/month), $32k MSRP
2. Nissan Murano (~$570/month), $38k MSRP
Any other suggestions of SUVs or 4WD sedans that have a better $month/MSRP ratio than the BMW and Infiniti?
#150 of 193 Gap Trap?
Jul 14, 2007 (7:46 am)
I'm in process of buying 2007 Sentra SL $17,200 after 1K in rebates. My dilemma is that their finance guy tells me that one of the rebates is tied to financing thru Nissan.No problem great rates and I have great credit. He then states that in order to get the rebate I have to purchase a $599. Gap policy. I told him that the rebate doesn't say that and he says he will check with his district manager. The car is due in Monday. I like the idea of Gap insurance,I like the rebate but not the price of it. Does anyone know whether this rebate is really tied to obtaing a Gap policy? Nissan Corp keeps referring back to the Dealership for that answer.

The dealer's story about the GAP policy makes no sense. The mere fact that Nissan referred you back to the dealer tells you that it's not Nissan's requirement.
Is the Nissan financing rate really all that good? Tying the rebate to it suggests it may be a relatively high rate. You might do better overall by arranging financing elsewhere.

Just for comparison (from today's edition of The Columbus Dispatch):
'07 Volvo XC70 ($42,950 MSRP) - $399/Mo. for 24 months with $1399 at inception/10.5K miles per year and
'07 Volvo XC90 3.2 ($45,075 MSRP) - $449/Mo. for 24 months with $1499 at inception/10.5K miles per year.

Thanks, cccompson! I'll definitely have to check those out -- they look like they might be comparable after adjusting to 12k mile / 0-down.
We stopped by a number of dealerships today and asked them if they could come close to the MSRP/$month ratio that Infiniti and BMW are offering ($42,000/$500) = 84...
They all gave a resounding NO! I was amazed that most couldn't even get close. Here are some examples:
Honda Pilot LX 4WD: $610/month
Honda Pilot EX 4WD: $670/month
Kia Sorento: NO 24month lease option
Audi / VW Dealership: Said they couldn't get close!
Jeep Dealership: The Same.
Mazda Dealership: The Same.
Subaru Dealership: The Same.
Chevrolet Dealership: The Same.
The only one that got moderately close was the:
Chrysler Pacifica AWD: $492/month ($36k vehicle)
And that's still as not as good! Any other suggestions out there? I'll have to check out the Volvo further...
