If this was for 3 years I would say killer deal.

60 month lease?

That’s a long lease and acquisition fee is steep

It was long. I had never done a lease and wanted a top end truck for what I was making payments on my previous truck. I jokingly said if they could get me the limited for $550 a month, I would jump. Not thinking it was a real possibility. Live and learn. On the up side, I requested a payoff from the leasing company, and it is within $1000 of low blue book after 20 months. SO I am looking to get a new lease on an SUV.

So you did this lease 20 months ago correct? Not recently

Yes, after reading through most of this site, I wanted to see how my first lease stacked up. It also helped some to figure out what my dealer called some of the components of the lease. I only posted to see if anyone saw something I did not.

$69K MSRP for a Ram? Jezuz! I have a Ram 1500 4X4 Crew, Big Horn and the MSRP was $49K, pretty nicely equipped. What the heck do you get for an extra $20K?

My lease is up in 6 months so I’m starting to shop around for a replacement. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to match my deal though, $0 down, $300/mo for a 36/10 lease. I almost want to extend it since it’s so damn cheap.

Any lease longer than 3 years is not good, for a variety of reasons. Also you should NEVER tell a dealer what you want to pay a month. That’s the absolute worst way to negotiate.
