Interesting to see how this is playing out.
In March they had aggressive residuals and MF on the wagon. If you went for 24 months at 10K miles you had:
61% residual and .00085 MF
Now it is:
55% residual with .00062 MF
So we lost 6 points on the residual but the MF dropped a bit (2.04% APR to 1.49%). The MF drop doesn’t come close to offsetting the residual drop. If you plug this in the calculator on a $30K vehicle with no discount off MSRP to keep things simple the monthly is up $74 or $1,776 over the two years.
Back in March there were just a handful of wagons on lots here in So. Cal. Now a search shows 75. Contrast that with the Encore where there are over 800 ready to buy. Sportback version of the Regal isn’t much better with only 95. Should note that lots of the wagons on Cargurus show they have been on lot over 90 days. They aren’t moving.
Starting to think with the low stock levels there won’t be any killer lease deals on these. The numbers are low enough that Buick will likely just move them with purchase incentives so they don’t have to take them back in 2-3 years.
