Feb 27, 2013 (1:37 pm)
Hey Car man, what do you think of this deal?
2013 SLT Acadia
Sale price $41,770
Aquisition lease fee $595
Factory rebate $2000
Down payment $1500
Net cap $38,865
39 month lease 12K per year total payment including 9% tax is $465
Total due at signing $2174 ($1500 down payment, 1st payment $465, Doc fees, title, ect $209)
Is this a fair deal?

Car man never advocates a cash down payment on a lease. Your monthly payment would go up to about $509/mo. Edmunds.com True Market Value says you should be able to get $2,117 off MSRP on this vehicle and this dealer is only offering $1,300 off. If you can get this additional discount you should be able to get the payment down to $485/mo with no down payment. (Just first month's and title).
If you are interested in a vehicle like the Ford Explorer they have much better offers this month.
#598 of 699 Acadia lease
Feb 28, 2013 (6:39 pm)
Hello, was wondering if anyone could answer some questions on a lease for 2013 Acadia. Right now my current quote from my local dealer in San Antonio, Texas is
3,000 (ttl) upfront
525 security deposit
1st months payment due
Then a monthly payment of $462
This seems like a lot upfront to my husband
Also another question, we leased a trailblazer in 2006 and turned in 2009. Our new lease was declined til we submit a balance that was owed from that lease to gmac of $1000.00. They said once its pd they will approve new lease. Is that a tactic to get the balance due or would that really happen?

I leased a 2013 2 weeks ago, total down was 2500, monthly payment 343, 12k miles a year. If you are looking at the base model that seems way to high. Really depends on the option you are including.

Hi dkm7498. The selling price that you were quoted isn't bad...probably less than $1,000 over invoice. It's great that the dealer is subtracting the cash incentives from that, though GM just introduced another $500 to $1,000 op top of the two grand that you mentioned in March (it varies by region).
As peperboy helpfully mentioned, I definitely always advise consumers against making capitalized cost reductions on leased vehicles. You'd be better off doing with a zero down lease, just making the first payment at signing and rolling all of the fees into the cap cost.

#601 of 699 When to buy between now and June 30
Mar 15, 2013 (8:12 am)
We're going to be in the market for an SLT Acadia over the next 3 months in the NY/CT region, but really don't need it until early July. Is near the end of the month in June, right around 4th of July, going to be the likely best time to get a good lease deal (looking for 36/39 month lease).
Assuming we want the AWD Acadia SLT with NAV system but without sunroof (if we can de-couple), what would be an expectation of monthly lease cost, assuming 730+ credit.
#602 of 699 good time to lease
Mar 15, 2013 (5:01 pm)
I just picked up my 2013 denali with nav 49675.00 msrp. 3yr/36month lease with usbank
paying 484 a month. Paid 1st and plates total was 655.00
5000 in rebates 2000 GM rebate 2000 conquest then 2) 500.00 bonus cash rebates
Cap Cost: $48111 - $5000 rebate = $43,111
Residual: 58% ($20,555.20)
Term 36 months
down payment = $0 (amount due at start is $655.00)
Payment = $484
Also traded in month car had 7 payment left. They bought out car and gave me check for 1000.00
Was quoted about the same price from 2 other dealers and was about same on trade in. This dealer was only one that had denali with no chrome wheels or upcharge for paint color.
Very happy with my deal. Based on edmunds true car I think I did well.
#603 of 699 Acadia Lease - 2013 SLT 2
Mar 19, 2013 (7:29 am)
HI - I'm new here and wanted to run a lease deal past the group.
2013 GMC SLT 2 - Tow package, Nav, sun roof
Trading a 2003 BMW Xit 120K - 4,000
1,500 Cash at delivery
39 month lease - 462/ mo
Would prefer lease payment to be 399 per month. Any suggestions on how to negotiate the price, trade and credit to bring only $1,500 and get my payment to $399?

You didn't mention the selling price. You need to negotiate with multiple dealers. Also make sure they are using the buy rate for the money factor.
#605 of 699 Leased a new 2013 acadia denali recently
Mar 23, 2013 (4:39 am)
GM is offering meaningful incentives it seems -- my out the door lease on a 10k / y, 36 mo lease was a little over 500+tax ($0 drive off) -- and the denali was loaded w rear DVD screen , premium paint and chrome wheels.
would suggest emailing a few dealers first and comparison shopping. in my experience, in this day and age, if a dealer or internet sales rep is unwilling to give any starting quote on email, they are not worth visiting. But i guess this may work better in a highly competitive and saturated market like southern california than say markets where there are only a few dealers in the state.
