#128 of 331 Help with lease?
Aug 18, 2012 (3:11 pm)
Seeing the $249 lease deal up here in Seattle area. I have never leased before but that is attractive deal. Although I know the payment does not include license or tax. Isnit reasonable to get a lease for $350/mo or less? Would like to put less than $2000 down and get 15k a year with miles. 24 mos is fine but would also go as long as 36.
Is the $5045 rebate only apply in California? I know there is the $7500 govt tax break.
Any insight from people that have leased in this area of the country would be appreciated!

Local chicago dealer offered $7000 one pay for 24 months/ 10k miles per year. Is this a good deal?

So I just left a local dealer.
On a base model, no options, price was right around $39,500.
Payment with $1000 down for 24 months and 12k miles/year was $389 including all taxes, etc.
Residual was around $26,700....but they also added $552 tax on the lease cash. What does that mean? The lease rebate is $5700 and the salesman said I would have to pay tax on that! I thought the lease rebate just was applied to the selling price of the car...just like if I was purchasing it? Why would I have to pay tax?
That would lower the payment at least $25 a month without having to pay the additional $552 over the course of 24 months.
And they also had the doc fee of $150 included, which I have never, ever paid when buying a vehicle...that just extra cash for the dealer.
I told them if they could get to $330 a month with $1000 out of my pocket I would sign up. Still have another dealer to shop to see what they can do.

Went to another dealer. Base 2012 with backup camera and chrome wheels. Best quote so far is $337 a month, $1000 down, and 27 month term. 12k miles a year.
How does that compare to others out there?

Well, I went for it. Best offer by my local dealer was $325 a month including all taxes, etc. for 12k miles a year and 27 mos. I reconfigured how much I drive and called him back and asked how much extra 15k miles a year would be. Only $16 extra per month!!!! So $341 for 15k miles and 27 mos. Only $1000 out of my pocket. Felt like that was pretty good deal.
It's only a base model. I didn't need nav or leather.

Had mine 11 weeks and just love it. Well built, very comfortable, fast and fun. Gets lot of attention. And think of the time you save not stopping, filling up and no oil changes for 2 years. Over 2000 miles and used only 1.1 gal of gas. If you drive 50 miles or less a day, you could go forever without buying gas. One of the best cars I've ever owned and Ive had quite a few.

Darwish at Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort, IL. I have not bought it yet. Planning to go in this week.

I am also working with a quote from Phillips. First quote via email to me was $7312.80 on a 24 mos lease, $44620 MSRP. This was for 15k miles, so I'm guessing you can do better. I'm buying this next week as well so let's continue to compare notes.
This did not include Tax title license.
Also, if you could let me know if you're getting comptitive quotes from other dealers, this information would be helpful also.
