Not trying to take anything away.
Here in SO CA (Costa Mesa, CA)
I had a great leasing experience with Connell Chevrolet.
I dealt with Eddie and his son Joey.
Eddie has been there for years 20+.
His son maybe 6 years.
Anyway, we have bought from them several times, always a good experience.
Again, not trying to take away, just posting my opinion.

Check out George Chevrolet in Bellflower. Ask for Alejandro.
I got my 2013 Chevy Volt leased in September.
$44k msrp without navigation. Don't need navigation when you get 3 years Onstar with turn-by-turn navigation download to your vehicle.
$1200 drive off including 1st month.
$325/month for 35 months....12,000 miles per year. ($325 is the total monthly payment with tax and everything.)
I got $1500 rebate for the clean air incentive program.
I used to pay more than $300 for gas every month. Now, i pay around $40-$50 a month to charge my car. So far, i only used up 3 gallons of gas from the same tank when i leased the car. Don't see myself filling up any time soon.

Can you tell us the residual on your lease? I have a feeling September was before they dropped the residuals and good luck getting that deal now.

The residual is $28,248. I had told a few of my friends and they got exactly the same deal, but that was in October. Doesn't hurt to try.
I had a good experience. Negotiated the price over the phone the day before, went in the next day to test drive, pick the color i wanted then completed the paperwork....all in about an hour.

Thanks. Indeed, residuals are lower. For the same car, I'm getting residuals of about $26300 instead of $28300. Makes quite a difference.

Wow, this sounds like a great deal but I cannot figure out how you got such a low price from the info you supplied. I assume they heavily discounted off the MSRP and perhaps you got very low interest. Even so, using a lease calculator I cannot get the payments below $400/500 per month. Can you provide nay additional details? i would love ot find a deal similar to this in the LA area.

My car got all the upgrade except navigation (dont need bc of 3 years Onstar), Bose , leather heated seats, safety sensors, etc... i didn't get the special premium bc i didn't want to pay more. They discounted the car down to around $40.,000 and then discounted the $2500. Not sure how they did it. My total drive off was $1199. It was my first time leasing. It's $30 more if you want 15k mi. But i never drove more than 12k a year.
George chevrolet is right off Bellflower on the 91 fwy . Ask for Alejandro.

I didn't care about the residual bc i don't plan on keeping my car after the lease term. This is the first time i lease a car. With the new technology and great lease price, my payment is the same as what i normally paid for gas. Unless i get a good lease deal later, i don't see myself leasing my next car.

Yes, I feel the same way. I prefer a high residual. Unfortunately, they lowered the residuals in mid October (RIGHT when I went to lease one!) and made a monthly lease rate more expensive.

Oh, I didn't realize it was 12k. I was looking at 15k. I also contacted George Chevrolet but they were only offering to go down to $42k before the $2420 reduction, not $40k. Maybe I can get them down to that price, too. Thanks!
