My lease with Mercedes Benz financial is coming to an end. I am looking to re-lease a new 2020 GLE and want to get some feedback. We are about 2 months away so I have some time to fix things if needed. From what i've read and researched it looks like MBFS pulls TU exlusivly in Oregon. Vehicle MSRP is $65,030//Sales Price $57,614.61 out the door. My husband works for Mercedes Benz so we get a 12% discount. Thoughts on where I should focus my energy?
TU Fico 8- 718
TU Auto Score 8 -730
Income $82k Yr
CC UTI 15%
Given your score and that you are about to pay off an existing lease satisfactory (among many other good things), I cannot see you having any issues. Looking at some of the other approvals from Mercedes Benz on this forum you are well ahead of a few of them. Some are with low to mid 600's and no prior leasing history with Benz.
Good tastes in cars by the way!
I financed a CPO Mercedes GLE350 last December in northern California. Here's the thread detailing my experience. Both the dealership and MBFS pulled my TU Auto 8 scores. They were in the same neighbordhood as yours, and were sufficient for Tier 1 (A) financing. So you shouldn't have any trouble.
You might want to wait for one of their promotional rates to land, however. I got 1.9% APR on my loan for 48 months. I'm sure you can get a very favorable lease rate if you time your transition properly. Good luck!
Just wnated to keep everyone updated. Approved for Tier A1, TU pulled a 743 and Money Factor was .00142 with a 56% Residual.
