@ Marty - haven’t actually been in a branch yet....but that’s on the other side of town from us. Bought @ MB of Boerne, they can pull your approval directly from RBFCU and do all paperwork so you can avoid a trip to the branch...it was great! We got the dark Grey & Black Napa leather with Cream insets in seats. She’s a beauty! My E550 was nice, but this one is far superior.

Thank you for the tip.  I will do that when I am ready to buy.

Re: Auto Loan Approvals!

Tigremalo2001, You can check with your insurance company to see if they offer GAP protection. Many insurance companies do, such as State Farm, and I think Progressive/Geico do as well.

AMEX BCE ($39,500) CITI AAdvantage ($18,500) Region's Platinum Card ($14,400) Discover IT ($18,000) Macy's ($7,000) Chase FU ($10,000) TU:788 EX: 767

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: Been waiting for this car since it was unveiled in January at the Detroit show. It was the first Stinger off the truck, leased it sight unseen and with no test drive. The car is great but the leasing experience sucked because of the shady dealer. First, even though they don't even use Transunion, they pulled it, since they couldn't access my Equifax, which is locked due to the breach. Once I got to finance, they told me they needed to run Equifax too, since that's who Kia uses, so now I'm stuck with an extra, pointless inquiry.
Then once I'm in the office and signing the contract, I see extras that I specifically declined are still in the MSRP. I was ready to walk, since I'm not paying for BS nitrogen air or "paint protection" or theft guard; my salesman was called in and he fixed it at the last minute though.
As for the lease, I know I probably overpaid; that payment could lease a BMW or Audi. Kia is currently offering $6100 lease cash and 0.00181 for tier 1/2 buyers though, so that took some of the 'sting' out of it.

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: was quite the interesting experience. Dont think I have had so many inquiries at one time. Good news is it paid off in the end. First time i sat down with the honda financing guy I am told best rate possible is 5%. On a new car, and a loan this size I was not thrilled so decided to hold off pulling the trigger. Cross shop Chrysler because they have incentive financing available, get approved, go back to dealership and test drive a Pacifica with my Wife. We both decide we prefer the honda enough to suck up the higher rate. We go back today to close the deal and sign everything. Imagine my surprise when the final paperwork reflects a new interest rate of 3.5%. I make no comment of the change through the whole signing process, just sitting there silently celebrating the win. The lower rate made getting gap and extended warranty easy choice as it was still less than the prior days offer. This van is awesome, glad we got it.

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY: I traded in my 2015 Audi Q3 that was coming off lease, as well as my 2012 VW Eos convertible, which lost about $6K in value because of an auto accident I am still negotiating a settlement on. Wiped out the negative equity with $4,500 cash and owner loyalty, as well as negotiating 6K off the MSRP. Option to buy this gorgeous car at the end of the lease in 36 months is $43K, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do in three years. Originally I was going to buy my Q3 after the lease ended, but the accident with the VW threw a wrench into that plan. I love convertibles, so I combined the best of AWD + drop top fun Smiley Very Happy

 

My DTI will go down as well, since this lease payment is less than the lease + loan on my other two vehicles.

MISCELLANEOUS COMMENTARY:
I narrowed it down to 4 cars nationwide. The one I really want won't budge off the price but I might let it go because I never pay asking price. The salesman would rather send it to auction in a week then negotiate a price with me (I'm really not asking for much off...$2500 at the most, he stated to me that he's at the point that he's losing money by it being on the lot. It's been there for around 170 days). I really did it just to see where I stand and to get my ducks in a row. Now I have to pay off my BMW within the next two weeks because I'm not about to have 3 car notes on my back.
