If I’m being honest, if I never found LeaseHackr I would’ve never been able to get into an electric car, thinking it was leagues out of my budget for a teenager. Not that I have, got a taste of it, joined my EV community outreach group, I probably wouldn’t be here right now in the major that I’m in, and I would definitely wouldn’t have the career goals geared towards the electric automotive industry, like I do now
Ok, I’ll toss a few into play… not unicorns but deals I was very happy with:
2017 Chevy Volt LT, $34k MSRP, $120/mth, $1k DAS. Sold it after 1 yr to shift and cleared $2k
2017 Maserati Ghibli S, $90k MSRP, $595/mth, $3k DAS. No haters pls, it was a fun car turned it in a couple of months after Covid hit. Everyone was freaking out about finding dealers that will accept lease turn-ins, but I found one 10 miles away that accepted it, no questions.
2020 BMW M550i, $85k MSRP, $650/mth, $3k DAS. Swapped it out for a decent price after 6 months (haha)
2020 BMW X7, $81k MSRP, $690/mth, $3k DAS. Just sold to a third party buyer
IIRC, I leased a '16 Cruze for 24 months @$80/month (which included over $1,200 in sales tax because MD taxes the entire price of a car on a lease). But I received $300 in Visa gift cards along with a $700 Costco giftcard. So after accounting for the gift card money, my effective monthly cost would have been $38.
Except I flipped the Cruze to Beepi for nearly $4k profit. Lol
