#134 of 241 Cadillac ATS 2.0T Base Manual Transmission
Apr 17, 2013 (1:52 pm)
I am glad to find this forum! Many of you seemed to have found great deals on this car. I am very serious about getting one myself.
Car_Man, If you would help me out by letting me know the residual on:
2013 Cadillac ATS 2.0T Base
No Options, with the exception of manual transmission, polished aluminum wheels, and CUE 8" color information display.
I would go with whatever length makes the payment lowest.
I would like to have zero due at signing, but first months payment would be acceptable. I am currently leasing a Dodge Charger so I would hope to be elligible for the lease conquest offer. I also am a GM employee.
I know the manual transmission will likely hurt the residual value.
All this being said, what do you think a fair payment range should be? I did ask about an ATS, but they tried to sell me a much more loaded one for $411 month with about $3,000 due at signing. Sounds high compared to what I have heard here. The dealer here showed that they would pay my Charger lease off, and that it would not bring negative equity to the deal.

Hi Car Man. Could you please give me the Money Factor and Residual for a 36 month lease for the base 2013 ATS with automatic? Thanks in advance!

I can tell you about my deal on Mar 31st.
Premium, Cold weather, Sunroof, Alarm package,
$2,000 at inception included first month tax title (new in florida is $500) and dealer fees and finance fee. Monthly is $480 tax included. Money Factor was .0125 . 15,000 miles per year. Included Conquest rebate. Miami , Florida.
Two comments...You gotta get the LED's HID's (It's soooo much better looking!) Requires Premium package or possibly performance.
Second comment...Gas mileage is not so good as of the first 800 miles. Actually, its quite horrible compared to the numbers. Traffic here is HORRIBLE, too. There are so few highways that let you go anywhere except to leave.
Good luck, Really Great CUE experience . Got a free Cadillac Ipad, too!
By the way way rented the 2.5 for two weeks and the gas mileage was significantly better..., by almost 5 mpg's in in the same locale, prior to buying the car.

I recieved two price quotes of $539 per month for a lease on this vehicle (39 mos/12K) and the only difference was the base prices ($42,075 and $46,890). Packages were the same, driver assist, sun roof, and cold weather. Shouldn't I take the difference in the base prices ($4,815) and divide that by the 39 month term ($123 per) to get a lower payment of $416 per month on the lower priced car? Help...am I missing something?

I got my quote from the dealer!
MSRP --> 36,765
PREF --> 35,277
EVA --> (1,000)
Lease Conquest --> (1500)
With first months payment + $175
36 months 10,000MI / year = $357.81 w/ tax
39 months 10,000MI / year = $354.34 w/ tax
What do you all think? I am a GM employee, and am currently leasing a Dodge Charger (for the lease conquest). The dealer said I have to pay 7% tax on the EVA and Lease Conquest discounts they are giving ($175) at signing. I have to order the car, so I am waiting until the first of May. I hope the Lease Conquest offer is still available or I could get the $1,000 by calling in.
This is a 2013 Cadillac ATS 2.0T RWD Standard
w/ Manual Transmission ($1,180)
w/ Polished Aluminum Wheels $800
w/ Cadillac User Experience (CUE) and Surround Sound $1,350

If you're looking for the difference, the crude way of doing it would be to take the % of the difference that you would actually be paying for. Let's say the residual on the car is 58%, then you would be responsible for 42% of that 4815, and then divide that number by the 39 months to see what the difference would generally be. As I stated, that's the crude way of doing it. I recently just signed for my car, which had an MSRP of 47,080, 39/12k year, for 530 a month. This is for a Premium 2.0T RWD 6-Speed with Crystal Red Tintcoat, Sunroof, Cold Weather, and All-Weather Cargo Mat. That's with first payment and plates down.

#141 of 241 2.0 Base Maybe Plus CUE
Apr 24, 2013 (11:15 pm)
Does anyone have a money factor for April for a 2.0 Base ATS, possibly with CUE? I have the following offer on a white tricoat 2.0 Standard: $2,000 Drive-Off, Selling price $36,000 minus a $1000 private offer and $800 dealer cash, $312.53/monhth. For some reason, I can't get an Ally money factor out of the dealer, and there's also some vague references to government fees and tax, but I've been told that's included in the $2,000 which has not been broken down to my satisfaction. I might include $1,000 of the $2,000 in the lease, I guess another $30/month. I don't really want the fancy paint job, but the only other Standard 2.0's in this part of Northern California are that weird blue, silver, or black which I don't like. I would be interested in CUE for a little more than the price of the paint upgrade, but I'm not convinced it's worth the money.

I think you can do better... here is what I got at the end of March. Not sure what the difference in residuals is between March and April though.
Black on caramel
2.0T AWD base with following options:
CUE with surround sound
All weather mats
and of course the ipad
$307.00 with tax for 36/12 with $842 due at signing through Ally.

Yes, I remember reading your account. That's a really good deal. I believe you said you got the GM employee discount which I don't have. What was your negotiated selling price and money factor? Apparently the residual is still pretty good, about 64%, not sure if that's the same as in March. I think part of the problem here is the low supply of 2.0T base cars, especially with the options you describe.
