#780 of 789 loaded platinum lease
Sep 17, 2013 (5:10 pm)
Hi, i've never done a lease before and was given the below terms - is this a good deal?
t5 platinum, tech, blis, active headlights, wood inlay - getting at invoice of 41,265 (are people getting below invoice like truecar says?)
mF .00022 (this might go down)
comes to $488.
I'm leasing primarily bc i need a car now but really want to own the 4 cyl engines

Is this on a 2013 or 2014? I'd need some more details such as your state and tax rate, but if I plug your #'s in a lease calculator, if you are truly putting down 4,000 at signing, I'd expect to be closer to $415 assuming you have top tier credit, even on a 2014. As for the price used on the lease, invoice on a 2014 isn't terrible, but you may be able to knock off another $600. If you are talking a 2013, you should be able to get well under invoice.

thanks so much.
to answer your questions - its a 2014 and they said this didn't include tax but the state is ohio
is there a good calculator you'd recommend, i can't seem to match your 415

Thanks so much.
Today I also learned that they are charging me a $1K fee, in addition to $250 registration and $60 title.
Is that size of fee standard? Would a great deal get it removed?

Is it the acquisition fee? The base acquisition fee for Volvo Finance is $695.. Not sure if dealer is allowed to mark that up, but if they are $200-$300 markup is typical...
Can't get around the acquistion fee, but you can ask them to not mark it up... Most dealers that mark up that fee also mark up the money factor..

Santa Monica Volvo. I live in Las Vegas and had called Culver City volvo who gave a good price right off the bat, I went there first and almost bought from them, but just decided to take a look at the Selection at Santa Monica with respect to colors and options. You should probably go to Culver City first, and if you don't buy from them, tell SM what price you were quoted. I really came
to LA with the intention of buying a preowned Audi A4 or leasing a new one, but couldn't make the deal, i think i got alot more car for the money with the S60.

#789 of 789 Lease pricing question
Nov 23, 2013 (9:48 am)
I was quoted:
2014 S60 FWD Premier with BLIS Black
39 mo 12k miles per year just tag ($200) or less is$399 plus tax =$423 you will only have 38 payments Volvo pays for your first payment and all maintenance
2014 S60 FWD Premier with BLIS Sport PKG (18's sport seats paddle shift ) Black
39 mo 12k = $423 plus tax =$449 you will only have 38 payments Volvo pays for your first payment and all maintenance
I was wondering if those numbers seemed reasonable?
Thanks so much!
