Thank you so much. I'm not surprised - there are tons of12 Enclaves in inventory everywhere, so that makes more sense.
Honestly, I can't afford the Enclave and was initially taken in by the $299 for 24 mos. deal on the base model.
So I think I'll be looking at something more in the line of the Hyundai Santa Fe! Now need to do some research on how much I can reasonably expect to negotiate off MSRP on those.
Thanks again - so much help!

Would look at the Equinox, really most under rated car out there. And if you need the extra row the traverse is very similar to enclave

I live in Texas and we went to local dealer today to look at leasing the Enclave. It's bottom price was $46393, which made the lease for 24 months $728. Yes this one did have all the bells and whistles on it but wasn't expecting a lease for that much! We received no incentives for leasing. We have never leased before but thought this was really high. Any suggestions what to ask for?

Hi there! I am no lease expert by any means, but I have done quite a few of them over the last 12 years and I have learned quite a bit.
Misconception for a lease:
You can't negotiate the sales price of the vehicle. That is so untrue. You can ALWAYS negotiate the price of the vehicle, just like you would do when purchasing it. Always start at invoice minus all the incentives and work UP, never work DOWN from MSRP.
So, for a 2012 Buick Enclave this is what you should open with:
INVOICE PRICE minus $2,000 conquest cash (for any non-GM owner) minus $2,000 rebate = $xx,xxx (about $5,000 to $6,000 off MSRP)
Nothing wrong with the NEW Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, it looks very nice. I will have to AGREE with the other post here about the Chevy Equinox.....it is #1 vehicle in its class and got better for 2013 with new 3.6L engine and revised suspension.
Hope this helps!!!

For the 2012 Enclave, this is what is available:
$2,000 cash allowance (Conquest Rebate) for purchase or lease for any NON-GM owner
$2,000 lease cash from ALLY BANK or $2,500 lease cash from US BANK
So, for a 2012 Enclave you should receive a MINIMUM of $4,000 off MSRP. I would shoot for $5,000 - $6,000 off MSRP.
Don't lease a fully loaded vehicle. Its a losing proposition in the lease. Remember, you will NOT own it......you are just "borrowing" it for 24 or 36 months (like a rental car).

Thanks everyone! Plain and simple, I can't afford the Enclave. Looking towards Kia Sorento or the Santa Fe now. The Equinox is impressive but I need stupid leather inside (toddlers!) and the price jacks up a bit too much for what I want to spend.
I appreciate everyone's assistance and now I feel like I can go into negotiations without being completely in the dark.
#410 of 481 2012 Enclave Convenience FWD lease
Oct 08, 2012 (5:29 pm)
I decided to spend a few minutes and get a quote from a local dealer on a 2012 Enclave Convenience Group FWD. MSRP $38,445
Here is what I was initially offered:
Base Cap Cost $33,100
Bank Aq Fee $495
ADJ Cap Cost $33,595
Residual Value $25,785 (67% for 10k miles/yr and 24 months lease) *its 66% for 12k miles/yr
Money Factor 0.00042 or 1% interest rate
Base payment is: $350.36 a month plus tax
Total Due at signing is: $800 (my portion to pay at lease inception)
I was able to get about $5,300 off MSRP in this deal, and I can probably get a few bucks more if I really push.
Honestly, its pretty solid in my opinion.
Hope this helps!!!!!!

Well, I am going to post a reply to my own message. And I have GREAT news!
I took delivery TODAY of a 2012 Buick Enclave Convenience FWD in Cyber Gray with Ebony Cloth interior. MSRP $38,245
A very nice dealer in Victorville, Ca (Greiner Buick GMC) made me an offer too good to pass up!
$841 due at drive off
$333/mo plus tax (NV sales tax is 8.1%)
24 month lease
Free maint, Free OnStar, and Free Sirius/XM Radio for 24 months included.
I tried to get them down to $325/mo plus tax, but the GM/Owner would not budge past $333/mo.
Get the 2012 Enclave while you can! The dealers are dealin'

I am looking to lease a 2012 Buck Enclave and take advantage of the incentives ($5,000) and 1% interest rate. I read on the message that the residual rate for the 24 month lease (12k miles) was 67%, however the sales person says that the residual is 63%.
Appreciate your feedback!
