#311 of 482 2013 Volt Lease - Advert fees in North CA
Mar 30, 2013 (3:23 pm)
Looking to lease 2013 volt soon and worked with a local dealer recently on the following deal (was wondering if someone can do a sanity check on that):
MSRP - $44,120
MF - .00044 (1.1%)
No cap reduction (no money down)
Car offer price - $41,658
Residual - 59% (is this right for 12k/y 36mo currently?)
Dealer's offer: $444/mo (my numbers come to $419 or so)
Does anyone know other fees charged by dealer? Document fee is $80, I believe, there is lease acquisition fee of $595 (I think), plus tax and registration fees.
Dealer claims 2 advertising fees are due in North CA each is $421 (so total $842), sounds strange to me, but I'm not familiar with Chevy leasing. If I add $842 to my calculations, I can see how dealer came to $444/mo. This of course includes incentive of $2,820
Any feedback on the deal and current leasing conditions would be appreciated.

Not a bad deal. I leased a volt in San Diego for 39 months/12k miles, $284/month tax and everything included, $3000 down. Got my $1500 california rebate back so esentially $1500 down. I love it!!

$398/mo (includes lease return insurance for any excess wear/tear)
36 months, 12K per year
No money down
MSRP of the car $42K (Premium with polished wheels)
Have been enjoying 95% gas free driving for 2 weeks now. Just finished self-install of Voltec charging station.

Car_Man: I come to you again to review options for a loaded `13 Chevy Volt with an MSRP of $46,040 loaded with every available option including special white paint, nav, leather, rear-view camera, polished wheels. Looking to calculate a monthly lease payment with the following info:
> Money Factor
> Discount off of MSRP
> 45k miles
> 36 months
> No $$ down
> Tag, title, dealer fees: $1k
There bigger question/issue is application of the $7,500 tax credit and how it applies to a lease in Georgia, if at all.
As always, thank you for your help and any additional negotiation points that I could use with this vehicle is appreciated.

I'm about to lease one in LA. What kind of rebate are you talking about?

I was offered from a few dealers for a base Volt with only first payment and tax/license as drive off cost for $290/mo + tax, 15k per year. There's so much rebate on this car like $3000 from GM, $1000 conquest rebate for current non-GM lessor, $7500 fed tax credit, and CA rebate too. I am sure I can do better by $20/mo.
#317 of 482 2013 Volt Lease
May 26, 2013 (9:50 pm)
Hello, long time member and this is the 4th lease that I have done in the past 10 years with the help of the Carman and the folks here.
Let me first start off by saying, if you search my previous posts where I leased Lexus vehicles, I've calculated leases to the final cent, finding out the money factor, multiple security deposits to get the MF down, residuals, etc, etc. I can calculate a lease payment to the cent with a hand held calculator but then that's a lost skill because now they have lease calculators you can download from the app store....haha..
This is the first time in my lease experience where I negotiated for a lease on monthly payment and down payment. I do not recommend this normally, anybody who negotiates on monthly payment and down payment and not on actual lease numbers, like residual and MF is going to get ripped off but if I do say so myself, this isn't my first rodeo and I know what I'm doing.
Here's the basics of my deal. I did not trade in a car. I did not buy an extended warranty. I did not buy accessories. I did not buy anything else, nothing, nada... there's no where, where they made money on me. People post great deals on cars and fail to mention that they traded in a car and took a 2000 loss or they bought 2000 of accessories or window etching, then of course they get a "good deal" on the car.
36months/15,000 miles through US Bank.
$339 + tax
$0 down, I paid nothing down, nada, not even title, tax, acquisition fee, nothing. Everything was rolled into the lease payment.
I paid the first month's payment on drive off, nothing else, not a penny more.
I qualified for the $1000 lease conquest rebate since I was leasing a Lexus.
This price seems to be only possible in 2 or 3 SoCal Chevy dealers that it. I tried to get others dealers closer to me to match it but it was a no go. From what I understand, some really high volume dealers get a bonus rebate from Chevy for selling a ton of Volts, so the high volume guys can do prices that nobody else can.
Good luck everyone.
#318 of 482 Looking for Best Lease in Los Angeles
May 27, 2013 (9:49 am)
I am currently leasing a 2010 Prius which I am paying $218 inc. tax with $1500 total drive off.
My lease will be due in two months and I am looking to lease a Volt.
I went to a local dealer and they quoted me $299/mo with $2500 drive off and 12k/Yr. I think
I can do better than that, so I need your help. What are the best lease terms in Los Angeles area?

I'm also in the market for the same car, in Los Angeles area, so quite curious to hear any answers to sussan's question.

I don't know the LA market but I leased my Volt in San Diego at Courtesy Chevrolet. I'm paying $284/month including taxes, 39 month lease. Drive off was $3000, $1500 of which I got back on the California rebate, and 12K miles/year. I leased at end of the month where they were willing to give a good deal to make their sales quota. Loving my volt!
