SMART buying experience at Round Rock, TX dealership was amazing. Service and support has been second to none. We get friendly letters on our purchase anniversary, couple quick calls after we bought to check on how we were doing, and the dealership has had a BBQ for all local purchasers. 6K miles and not one issue in the 1.5 years we have owned it. Do not let the miles imply we do not trust it for normal driving; we bought it for our 16YO and thus, not driven that much but I do take it periodically to work and enjoy not only the car but the also its handling, surprising power, and seat comfort. On wish would be that SMART fix the rear view mirror (needs to be raised a bit on the convertible). With the top all the way down it is difficult to see a coupe behind you.

What is the current lease money factor and residual rate for a 2013 Smart fortwo SmartC 2dr Coupe?
I was quoted a selling price of $11,754.00 and a lease rate of $156/mo including tax and I would like to get a better idea of if this is a good deal or not.

I'm sorry, but I don't have any Smart lease information..
How much money upfront to get that low lease payment?

No down payment on this deal.
Im curious then, where do you get your information for other dealerships? I am just wondering if there is some database that people can tap into. My understanding is that dealerships are not required to provide the money factor on lease worksheets, but yet somehow you and CarMan are able to acquire this info - which is really valuable for going into a negotiation with people who negotiate for a living.
I would assume that because this car is not as popular you guys just dont have the numbers because I have been watching the prius forum and some infiniti models as well and the money factor is always attainable.
Thanks for any insight!
