I’m currently looking to Lease a 2021 Crosstrek, preferably in Limited or Sport trims. From looking at inventory, there definitely seems to be a small amount of vehicles available, average price is hovering around 32k.I have one picked out that I’ve been in touch with the dealer and going to see it tomorrow, but realistically how much can I expect to negotiate off the cap cost? (I also have the MF and residual which I will demand to get). I’ve searched the forums but last deal on Crosstreks I found was in Nov 2020.
FYI - located in SoCal, 10k miles, 36 months. MSRP: $30,239, MF: .00155 Residual: 65%. Hoping to get to a ~$350/mo payment, which acoording to the calculator would be trying to get 10% off MSRP.
Crosstreks generally aren’t sitting for very long right now. My buddy works at a Subaru and he says the ones that hit the ground sell within a few days and half the incoming units get reserved before hitting the ground.
Mr deadtrick here is gonna try to get 10% off just because the calculator told him it would give him a nice payment of 350. I wish the world worked according to an online calculator.
Was simply trying to see what I could get given the current market, see what deals are out there, and what’s realistic. Didn’t mean to offend anyone or imply that I would be getting those numbers. Unfortunately looks like the rules for the community and “being kind” aren’t respected here.
They are respected, but all the guys here have seen hundreds of unrealistic posts. Your’s was well written with a goal in pricing, but you picked a car that can’t be had for that price, unless it’s been in an accident first.
They do mean well but yes, it comes off harsh, in fact the first reply from MLLCB42, that was probably the most concise post I’ve seen him do, and it was pretty much to the point. Your 10% isn’t going to work today.
Well, the only usual trick that still works is wait till some broker here offers a great deal and snap it up. That’s how I got my Kona, and that’s how all these people got 4Xes and now Willys.
I mean to even get 8% off a Jeep, you have to find a dealer who will honor Associate (aka almost employee) pricing and that’s pretty rough. but 10% off a Subaru? that’s really hard in this short stock market.
