Ok, you think fees are to much. Can you explain why? What do you think about the cap price, money factor? MF seems high to me, am I wrong?

Hi, I am no expert but I think the numbers are very high too. Look at post
#238, this looks like an excellent deal, I am going to try to duplicate this one. What dealer are you working with? The money factor seems ok, the fees are high, I would expect 500-550 for registration, title etc but thats it. You want agreed sale price to be around 10% less than msrp, then deduct dealer incentives, then do calculations, there are many lease programs such as the one someone linked to above. Good luck, its such a pain to haggle I know.

Thanks for your post. I did the calculations on the link above and the payment came out $50+ less than what I was offered. Actually, this is the first offer the internet sales guy made. I'll look into different calculators and I'll respond with something more reasonable for me. I mean $230 with 600 down for a 24 month lease with a good residual value just doesn't add up. Thanks for your help. Ps. I think I've seen the post you mentioned, that deal is awesome. The dealer I'm working with is Deland Hyundai in Florida.

This is a very good deal. Does you cap cost include any other fees besides th acquisition fee and how much was the acquisition fee? I have a guy trying to jack me with a $230 p/m offer with $600 down for a 24 month lease on a 2013 Elantra w/preferred package. The MSRP he quoted is identical to yours, $19695.

I used the calculator and then spoke to my dealer, he lost it when he heard my calculation for the monthly payment. He just asked how much I can put down so he can start a new offer. I told him about the fees and his "out the door price being to high" he never referred to it. He is working on a new deal now, hopefully he'll come up with something good for $600 down. His deal is not bad, but like you said, his fees were making a killing. Thanks for you opinion.

He cam back with his "best offer" which was, in fact identical to his $230 p/month with $600 down for a 24 month lease on 13 Elantra - preferred. I told him its the same offer and to stop wasting my time. After two days of emailing back and forth, if he doesn't go down after that, at least I can concentrate elsewhere. Thanks for your comments everyone.

According to my contract, the only fee added to the cap cost was the acquisition fee of $595. The total that was due at signing was to be $723.70. It lists $500 as cap cost reduction, $133.70 first months payment, $60 for title fees and $30.00 tax on cap cost reduction. They used a $500 rebate to cover the cap cost which left a balance of $223.70, which is what we wrote a check for at delivery.
Has the dealer you're working with provided you with a selling price? Don't talk payment, just selling price. Once you have that, you can use a lease calculator to figure out what your payments should be. Also, don't wait on one particular dealer. Start emailing several asking for price quotes.
Even though I think you said you were in Florida, here is a link to an ad running in the Cincinnati area papers. It used to say $125 a month a couple weeks ago.

These offers are crazy. There is nothing like it here in Fla. The deal you got is a new record. Thanks for working out the details, its a lot of help. I stopped my negotiation with the $230 p/m guy and now I'm looking into others. He had a good initial offer but would not take it down. I will keep on working and hope for better deals in April.

I went to a hyundai dealer this morning in NJ by my math I should have been at 137 a month with first payment down. They were at 171.
dealer price 18560
Rebates 1900 (motozuma, college, competitive)
money factor .00074
12k miles a year
I should be at mid 130s they were at 171.
Going back tonight will have the deal done by middle of next week but on my terms. ( I am in the biz)
