Re: Leasing Calculator, I still don't understand!! Help Please?

I wouldn't buy it but that is because I'm leasing a Cadillac for 350 so paying 390 for a Kia would never happen. The deal isn't terrible. They seem to honest as upfront. You didn't want to pay more than 300 with no money down. Why would you accept close to 400 with 1k down for a Kia? The vw cc was a better deal

just curiours because I looked online but not in person.... What Cadillac did you get (Lease? 2012? Cash down?)

Yes I would like to be at $300 and willing to go up to about $350 it is everytthing I dream of (LOL) kidding!

Im not going to pay $400 with $1k down which is why I asked for the numbers and then asked here because 3 monhts back I had basically the same car for $350 WITH Tax lease, but I "Might, I really can't remember but I may have been offering $1500 down.

So I mean obviously and I have said it multiple times I should have leased the Infiniti for $300/month with tax!!!

but trying to move forward because I can't change what has already happened, but I do have to be careful because Im getting so emotionally drained and fustrated I can feel myself being close to saying done and done and drive off in something I HATE

and the VW CC was not even close to a better deal, especially sense it had almost NO options!

It's not a terrible deal. The MF works out to 2.81% and the residual is reasonably high. The problem you're facing is:

1. Your sales tax rate is incredibly high and 2. The cap cost reductions don't do much for you.

 

If you really want to stay under $300, and you can no longer get the infiniti, why not aim a little lower? That's an expensive car. $35k is nothing to shake a stick at and I don't think any Kia is worth that much, IMO.

 

Why not do something like the Verano? They are advertising a $199/mo lease right now on a decently equipped car. 24 months, includes maintenance. I think realistically to get the payment where you want with $0 down with no real 2012s left on clearance, you're going to have to reduce your price by $5000+.

 

Plus you're just shooting in the dark, you have no idea what car you want and are just shotgunning everything hoping someone will come out of nowhere and give you a porsche for $250/mo. You'd be a lot more successful if you knew what car you wanted, knew what you wanted to pay for that car, and quit just shopping blindly for anything with wheels.

A big part of this is true...

1. I say no money down because you are almost never not going to have to fight it in the deal and then I can throw some in... but really I just want to walk in with everything done and we don't have to play games in the dealership... and I understand I have given out my credit like I'm trying to get it stolen (LOL)

2. tons of options for leases for $189 all the way up to $299 for VERY expensive cars, many are $2-$3k down... now I know I am not going to do that!

 

Hopefully I can post a final decision soon....
