I think your numbers might be a bit optimistic. Back in October, 2006, Mercedes was offering $10,000 marketing incentives, and the dealers were willing to go about $16,000 under MSRP, not invoice. Of course, the vehicles are still not moving (witness the demise of the R500), and you might succeed. Please post your findings when you are finished negotiating. These forums are a great source of info for buyers and have significantly leveled the playing field for us. Even if you plan to keep the vehicle, you might want to consider a 24 or 27 month lease. The Money
Factors are currently very low, and, if the vehicles really tank in resale value, you can either buy the vehicle from Mercedes Financial at a price lower than your lease contract, or you can simply walk away. If you buy, you do not have that option. Just a thought. In any event, best of luck and please post again!
#48 of 294 Mercedes Lease Loyalty Program
Oct 05, 2007 (5:09 pm)
Has anyone heard of Mercedes' Lease Loyalty Program? I am getting close to the end of my lease (2005 C240) and am in the market for a larger vehicle due to a growing family. I like the R350 but am leaning towards the Audi Q7. Today my Mercedes dealer (Helms Bros. in Queens, NY) said that they are willing to pay the last 4 lease payments to get me into a new Benz. I am a little skeptical and was wondering if anyone has heard or taken advantage of this program? Thanks in advance.

Please, please tell me where to get these great lease deals. I am in Texas and we pay the total sales tax on a lease. The bottom line price is extremely important. I am negotiating a deal on a R350 right now and the prices I am being quoted are WAY ABOVE...on a 2008. Help!
Looking for a R350 AWD, pkg. II, rear entertainment, light package, metallic paint, i pod, 6 disc cd changer, keyless and voice control. I would drive out of state and pay sales tax , when I get it back to Texas if I could get the deals you are talking about! Please put me in touch with any of these dealerships!
Need a 33-39 month lease, 12,000 miles....ANY help would be so greatly appreciated.
#56 of 294 R350 offer on the table
Feb 29, 2008 (9:41 am)
MB of South Charlotte (NC) is the dealer. I have the following offer on the table --
2008 R350 2WD
7 seat option
6 CD changer
Sale price $48,420
Sadly, I have a trade-in of a 2004 GMC Envoy XUV that is upside down (on a purchase no less) to the time of $3500, so I have to roll that back in. MB matched the Carmax price of $10,500 on the XUV and I owe $14,049 on it, so I feel that's fair.
They're offering 1.9% financing up to 72 months, with a payment of $792 with no money down.
The lease they've offered is for 33 months at $779.25 with an initial payment of $854.44. 15k miles, money rate .00025, residual 55% ($26,631).
While I like the thought of a 33 month turn-in, I am a fairly high miles driver -- I averaged 19k miles per year on the Envoy. Thus, I am strongly leaning toward the purchase deal.
