#29 of 67 Re: Do not buy a Lincoln or Edge with Sync unless.... [dt63944]
Nov 24, 2007 (4:06 pm)
I did hours and hours of online research before I bought the 2008 Lincoln MKX. The dealer and all of their "certified Sync" techs assured me the voice recognition system in Sync would work with my model Razr and Krazr. It didn't but they offered to take back the car. After all the time invested I decided to keep the car (2 year lease). I am waiting for Sync to work with the Razr V9. If anyone who reads this post knows of Microsoft's plans to add phones to the Sync compatibility list please post a reply. So far nothing on syncmyride.com.

In 25 years of car buying, the best experience we've ever had to date buying a car after dealing with Gary-Worth in Gladstone, Or. Came out of an A4 lease. With the incentives right now, we leased a fully loaded MKX (elite, spec ed, ultimate) for $615/mo out the door with only $220 out of pocket (24mo/ 15K, 63% residual). The list was $45K; w/ incentives, we were at less than $40K. With the .000207 Red Carpet rate for 24mo, we will actually be able to buy this rig after 2 years for a better buy then with a cash deal right now....
My wife just loves it and the kid loves the nav system toys. The sync system works as advertised and they have their stuff all plugged in.

Hello. Does anyone know if this is a good deal? 39 month 10 500 mile lease, Ultimate Package plus double headrest DVD and Vista Sunroof for $486/month. No money down, taxes and title of approx $2200 due at signing?
Any opinions as to whether or not the deal will get better if I wait till Jun/July?

It's a fair deal. The $ due at signing through Lincoln on the MKX is only $300 though. You're putting $1,900 down on the car. That's $535 a month before that cash. That said, it's a fair enough deal. If it's a Limited, Ultimate, Elite with $300 due at signing, the normal payment is around $580ish on 39 months. With headrest tv's, I'd jump at the deal. $535 is cheap.

Hello. The package is only Ultimate Package with vista sunroof option and double headrest DVD for the kids in the backseat to watch. NO NAVIGATION system. Also I was under the impression that the $2000 at signing was for taxes and title, is that not so?
Is your opinion that it is still a fair deal? Thanks again!

Tax, title and license shouldn't be that much...that's crazy.
Also, ask them to waive your first month payment and if you currently have a non-ford lease, they may pay up to 3 payments off. Good luck!
PS: It's still a very good deal.

#37 of 67 Need some quick help as to whether this is a good lease.
Apr 29, 2008 (11:25 am)
Trying to get input as to whether this is a good deal and what you would recommend to do. I received the following quote today from a Lincoln dealer in Northern NJ: Tax and MV fees down (about $2000). The truck is fully loaded with the panoramic roof, navigational system, THX radio, all the bells and whistles, etc., etc. et. Dealer will also install Headrest DVD feature for $530/month, 39 months, 12,000 miles, residual at 50%. First, would you (or anyone else out there) consider this a good deal. Second, I have a Murano with 5 payments left ($400/month or $2000). The dealer offered to take my truck, pay it off, and then increase my monthly payment $50 to cover the cost of the old lease. Is this something to consider, or are there any benefits to paying off the Murano lease myself. Can I try to get Lincoln to pay off some of the lease.
