Just got an email saying this car is now available. Seems like a pretty good deal from the rough numbers, but I'd like more details. Haven't driven it yet, so I'm not sure I'd like it, but . . .
I'm interested in a three year 10K mile lease. I have no idea on what kind of discounts or specials they're offering on the car. If you could just go off whatever you think is a reasonable price for a base model or whatever. Do you know the MF and residual yet?

Can we get your help to reverse engineer the GL lease promotion on the official MBZ website, www.mbusa.com. I'd like to understand the MF/Residual and other charges.

Please help here, HOST. What are money factors and residuals for GL, 24 and 36 months, 15k miles. Thanks.

I am a first time poster here. I am considering leasing the Infinti GX or the Mercedes GL. I would prefer the Mercedes, but the difference in price is hard to justify for me personally. How much of a deal are the Mercedes special lease offers? Do they cut overall costs significantly, or are they just smoke and mirrors?

You're comparing two totally different vehicles. The equivalent of the Infiniti FX for Mercedes would probably be the ML and the equivalent for the GL for Infiniti would probably be the QX. Also consider the fact that the GL does cost around the same as a Toyota Landcruiser.

Thanks for your response. I used the wrong vehicle name in my question. Sorry. I am looking at the QX and the GL. I have five kids, so with my husband and I and all the kiddies, I need a lot of trunk space. I'd like a luxury car, so that leads me to the Mercedes GL or the Infiniti QX. I much prefer the Mercedes, but the cost difference between the GL and the QX is hard to justify to myself... despite tehri obvious differences. The Mercedes similarly equipped seemes to be around $15-$20k more than the Infiniti, and I am wondering whether there are better lease options for the Mercedes that may bring the prices of the two vehicles closer to each other. Can you offer any suggestions?
Also, in the back of my mind I worry abotu the safety of the Infiniti.

Hi, yea, don't expect the GL to be reduced anytime soon. It's still kind of new. As for the Infiniti, I really haven't heard good things about it, if it was the FX, I'd say go for it, but the QX is kinda shaky. However, I'm sure if u wait a while, u could get a GREAT deal on the GL, look at the marketing for the R-Class.

How long is a while? I am afraid I don't know anything about the marketing fo the R class. I do know all local dealers in my area do not even have the GL with the back up camera. They say it will be months before that arrives so I assume pricing won't go down until for much after that. What do you expect the timeline to be like? Months or years?

Yea, the Rearview Back-Up Camera isn't going to be available until July built vehicles. I would think that the vehicles should DEFINITELY be reduced for Mercedes-Benz' Winter Dream Event, which is sometime in November. Not sure if you want to wait that long.
