#2973 of 3020 Finding good low-mileage lease values
Feb 26, 2013 (9:41 am)
I want to lease a wagon, minivan, or SUV, but I will only put about 5000 miles/year on it.
How can I find out which companies/models offer credits or higher residuals for such low mileage?

Looking to get a car here fairly soon and wanted to ask which is a better value car to buy (new or used)
With the way the used car market is right now which would be the best way to buy taking into account that we drive our cars till they die? We plan to keep anything we buy 15+ years are have concerns buying a used car that already has a chunk of its life used up only to save a few thousand bucks. Any advice is welcome
#2978 of 3020 Leasing (Weak Credit)

we did a joint app for leasing a Nissan and were turned down.
and now we're looking at Ford. Is Ford more lenient? or would we just be wasting our time?

I negotiated a lease for my fiancée on a new chevy traverse however, when she went in to do the paperwork they totally changed the deal from 544 a month including tax to 679 by telling her that the deal inalready made disnt include tax etc.. but it did, they where just being dishonest! Also, they sold her unnecessary tire ins and appetance package etc... That she felt she was forced into. I was originally going to use my 1k off lease incentive because I lease a BMW but, she decided to use usaa pricing instead and the deal has been done for over a week and the dealer called and said he wants to bring him a check for 1k or, a copy of one of my lease statements. I am not giving those crooks anything after they where so dishonest not to mention I am not on the deal at all! Now we are getting calls from gmac about her previous car asking why it's not paid off yet? This can't be legal or ethical and, I am so upset that all this is happening. I don't want to give them anything after they treated her this way. What should I do?
#2982 of 3020 Where could I post this question?

I'm a little lost. Apologies. You all sound fantastic. I could really use your advice.
My girlfriend is in the market for a new car, knows the features she wants, but is unfamiliar w/ most models. Any awesome suggestions from these criteria?
4-wheel drive -- candle handle snow country, backpacking trips, hiking, camping, etc.
Relatively High MPG within it's class (not a gas guzzler).
Common features: Air conditioning, Power lock
Price range as <$50,000 (NEW) - Prefers non-luxury brand (or more specifically, not the kind of brand that has high maintenance costs; she's heard horror stories from some audi/lexus/bmw?) - Not picky about body model, per-say, but does not want a minivan, nor a 2-door coupe. Most other options a-OK. Would like a brand known for longevity -- wants to buy new, be able to rely on for many years. Engine preference: V6! Gas or hybrid OK as long as it meets the other specs. Not diesel. Size: Prefer if it can fit 5 people. Drive: Automatic Interior: Non-leather Gas tank size no less than 12gl Roof rack integrated preferred Would like some good cargo capacity (it'd be a plus) Brand: She has received some good feedback/suggestions on Subaru -- but is not explicitly attached. She's actually interested to see if you guys also agree this is a good option?
