I got my lease in CA today. Can't say whether it is a good deal or not but I got a loaded 2013 Volt minus the sensors and the new rim design (everything else included). I paid $3250 down and $399 per month for 12k miles and 36 months. I think it may be possible for you to get the same deal for $3000 down. But you may have to be more adamant than I was!

#223 of 314 Should I take this lease offer?
Nov 17, 2012 (5:52 pm)
I am looking to lease a new 2013 "fully loaded" Volt. This particular Volt has every available option except no special metallic paint and no special polished wheels. But it has Bose sound, nav, safety 1 and 2, etc. The MSRP is $44,120 . I was offered a 36 month lease, 12K miles per year with $1,500 due at drive off (includes first payment) and then 35 payments of $379 per month plus tax (which comes to just over $414 per month including tax). Since I live in California, I would get the state rebate of $1,500, so my net drive off cost is zero. So is 35 payments of $414 for a 36 month lease on this particular Volt a good deal? I live in the Los Angeles area. I welcome all feedback and suggestions. Thank you!

Ok- So I got my new 2013 Volt yesterday. Went with the base model since they are kind of hard to find around here and I didn't want to pay extra to have one delivered ect. Sticker price of 39,995- Paid 37,900. 5420.01$ in reductions (includes 2420 rebate, 1850 trade in, and 1150 down). 36 months, 12,000 miles per year. No security deposit, 1st payment taken out of reductions. Total with license, registration, lease fee's, and doc fee's = 38,575. Residual 23,597.05. Base payment of 320.44 plus tax= 346.88$.
What does everyone think? I haggled all day- took in the consumer review showing what they paid. I'm sure I could have gotten it a little lower but after 4 hours I just didn't have it in me anymore to argue. I'm happy with it

I got the offer from Keyes Chevy in Van Nuys, CA. I actually picked up a new Volt yesterday. It is fully loaded, including the metallic paint and black rims, and has an MSRP of just over $45,000. They wouldn't go any lower than their original offer (the one I originally quoted in my first post), but no other dealer would match their offer. So I took what they offered me. I paid $1,500 in total drive off at time of signing. This included the first month's payment. It is a 36 month lease, 12K per year. So I have 35 payments of $379 plus tax per month. And in CA, I will get the $1,500 back from the CA state rebate.
I highly recommend Keyes. They were very professional, with no hard sale tactics.
#229 of 314 To whose advantage is it to put money down on a lease?
Nov 19, 2012 (10:49 am)
Putting $3K down on a lease goes against everything I have ever read or thought about leasing a car.

Amazing. I was also dealing with Keyes. I went in this weekend and tried to lease the identical car. We negotiated around and got to $457 per month (inc tax) with $2100 drive-off, 15kmi, 36 months. 12kmi makes a difference, but I don't think a $50/month difference.
Actually, I was close to getting around $430/month inc tax, which was in the range of reasonable for me, but then they tanked my trade-in. So that killed the deal.
