Any good sub $200 a month leases for September?

I need to pickup a sub $200 a month lease by the end of this month. 12K a year miles or above turning in a 2015 passat (that was ~180 a month 15K miles a year). Was trying to work up a deal on a terrain but still seem to be over $200 a month. One challenge is the VA TAX (4.4% of the sale price). Any suggestions hackers? Can be pretty flexible on the type of lease…

Use your VW loyalty ($750) to roll into a new passat or jetta. Should be able to get below $200 with the loyalty.


Jeep Compass, base tiguan

I heard fiat 500e’s can be had for under 200$

Kia forte5 hatch. Under 200 not as easy as it used to be, assuming only first month due.

I also heard that you should be able to get sweet deals on Jettas this month, especially with the $750 loyalty. Would love to know if you are succesful.

The loyalty seems to only apply to the jetta and not the passat. Can anyone confirm…

Lesson to all. Please do not wait for last month to pickup a sub $200 lease. Shopping and negotiating takes a few months. Have you tried the perennial lease favorite Buick encore?


From what I’ve read the $750 loyalty is only good if you get a 2019 Jetta. I don’t think you can go wrong with another VW, especially with the partner program

You can get 2018 Sonata SE for ~$180 including tax without Boostup. If you have a bootup, that is $500 saving. Ask @drtodd for more details or help. I did not bite last month since I was planning on the $1000 Uber discount which is not available any more. However, I was able to negotiate the selling price down to $21K before adding $5000 lease cash and $400 grad discount. MSRP is $23,1xx.


Can you please please pm me with the dealers info I wasn’t able to find it for under 200 with just first month due.

Sorry I don’t know what is your location and I am not a broker. I searched in MN for myself and can make similar deal almost anywhere in MN. Again if you need help PM @drtodd.

Fair I think some of that can be done in advance but I struggle with programs changing monthly. Only half of a “leasehackr” worthy deal is the dealer discount. I feel like the other 50% is variable monthly programs. Both halves need to be aligned for that 1 in 20 leasehackr deal…

The under $200 target is a pet peeve of mine. Does somebody come to the $200 number through meticulous budget planning or because it’s a round number. Im going to lease this crappy car because it’s $199/ month and ignore the much better value lease because it’s just north of $200. Sounds stupid but people are doing this on here all day every day. I’m all for setting a budget and sticking to it, just try and be more cognitive when setting a target. $200 is an arbitrary number when it comes to budgeting. When’s the last time somebody said they’re trying to be under $234?


again fair. So lets say low 200’s. This is for my mother in law who truly needs an “appliance”

Haha. There is a reason why everything is .99, 2.99, 99.99. Even gas is like 3 dollars and 89 and 9/10 of a cent. Who came up with the 1% rule anyways? It’s clever, but also very general and arbitrary.

Why not another Passat? I see a lots of women in their 60s-70s in Passats; seems like a good appliance car.

I don’t think there is a more appliance car than the elantra, should be right around $199.99!
