2020 Hyundai Kona 1.6T Ultimate; $286 w/tax, $286 DAS, with $750 trade-in

Hi everyone. Haven’t posted but always kept eyes on the forums, trying to absorb as much information as I can.

Negotiated the lease via email with the dealer. Straight forward process, dealer fulfilled promise.

This was my first lease, so I want to 100% verify that I got at least an OK deal. Any feedback would be great so I can do better next time.

Good deal IMO

The selling price could be lowered to bump up the MF and keep the payment the same; the finance manager probably makes a little commission doing that

Ah, I see. That would make sense. Thanks for the feedback.

Wow, I think the real story here is that you got the ultimate for a selling price of 27K! Subtract the $7500 fed and some state rebate and this is a hell of a buy.

7500 dollars?

This doesn’t appear to be the Kona EV


Nope, this one has an internal combustion.

Oh poops, i get this tunnel vision when I come on leasehackr where I think all the great deals are evs.
