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!

Maybe it was a good thing i didn't know anything about leasing. I don't know how they do their calculation. I BS on what another dealership was quoting me and got them to beat it or match it....and they did. If you're serious about leasing the volt, i can ask the salesman that i got the car from to see if they can give you the same lease. It worked for my friends.

Congratulations. As long as you are happy with it then it's a good deal. It's a great car. For the price of the car, i wish they make it more luxurious. I guess something gotta give . I have my car for 3 months and still has 6 gallons of gas left. I hope i remember how to fill gas later...lol.
Btw, don't forget to enroll with Onstar and download the app on your phone for the remote start. I love the turn-by-turn navigation. I didn't know this but it takes about 16 hrs to charge on empty 8amp. You can over ride it to 12amp by pushing the leaf button. It will give you a quicker charge...about 10hrs on empty. Enjoy your Volt.

The I phone app is awesome.
I have had my volt 3 months, gone 1200 miles. Three gallons of gas used, way cool.

I leased a 2012 in Riverhead, Long Island, NY. My Volt is fully loaded, including the Diamond White paint. I negotiated a payment of $418 per month for 36 months and 36,000 miles (20 cents per mile over that limit). As your posting is almost a month old, I'll assume that you made your deal. I hope that you like your 2012 as much as I love mine. I've driven over 9500 miles to date, half electric, half gas. I get an average of 20.7 kWh/100 miles and 41.2 mpg in CS mode. My total energy cost is averaging 6 cents per mile (and that's using premium gas at around $4.20 per gallon). Usable life of the ICE oil is at 79%, many more mile yet to go before needing an oil change. The 2010 Prius I traded in would have averaged 8 cents per mile (50 mpg and $3.85 per gallon), or more when factoring in oil changes. The electric rate I pay, with taxes and surcharges factored in, is 20 Cents per kWh. Good luck with your 2012 - you're in for a treat! And just for the record, I am completely bewildered with the Edmunds comment about touchy brakes, My brakes act just like my Prius brakes acted. They are NOT touchy, IMO. They are excellent.
