2018 Mercedes C300 4Matic Pull the Trigger?

#1

Hey all, looking for advice on this quote. I left the dealer a little irritated, they won’t take my 2016 Nissan Maxima. The lease is up, and they told me to go turn it in because they won’t accept it. So that’s why I haven’t signed the deal yet.

Its ridiculous that you expect an MB dealer to accept your Nissan lease return.

The lease doesn’t look good. People have gotten better discounts on 2019s.

First time moving up to Luxury, so I got used to trading my previous lease and getting a new one. So if I’m in the wrong then my bad. Lesson learned. :slight_smile:

That’s what I thought, the residual looks low, and I’m thinking I can get a better selling price. Thoughts?

RV is set by the captive. Non-negotiable.

You can try for better discount. You can also explore MSD to buy down the MF.


#5

For a 2018 I would push for more money off as it’s old stock now. Is it an ex-demo/loaner? Might be able to find one on swapalease.com and save quite a bit more depending on the original down payment and/or incentives. To put it in perspective you could get a BMW 330e for $300p/m at the moment, effectively half the price of this.


#6

The MF is already at .00078, Would MSD make any difference at this point?


#7

Absolutely

You can get from ~1.78% to close to nuthin’


#8

Geez, sorry I just looked at the paperwork again, I mistyped, they have the MF as .00028

That’s why I was saying I can’t believe it’s that low. Is that possible?


#9

It’s up to you. Do you want to pay a little interest or almost zero interest?


#10

lol Of course Zero interest is better. I guess I’m surprised that the MF can be 0.67%


#11

Is this at the Fort Mitchell Mercedes?


#12

Hey that’s a good idea @ajgraham. I’ll also look at BMW, just stated the quoting process. No reason why I shouldn’t look at Audi and BMW.

It’s an outgoing model. They gotta move em.

I got my MF down to four balls 1 with 2 deposits on my GLE
