Can any hackers with experience school me in the buy vs lease when one is better financially then the other. I’m doing research on the vw id 4 awd pro. It’s my wife’s car as I will have a corvette in the driveway so I want her to get what she wants. She has a Tiguan currently on lease and she loves vw but she wants a faster suv. I tried shoving her to audi but she doesn’t like interior. So I’ll keep working her but the numbers to vw I’d 4 are what they are.
Msrp will be 49370 and I highly doubt any rebate. I live in ny so no msd. In essence doing a 0 down lease will cost roughly 660 a month or paying taxes and fees upfront will be 550. Taxed incentives will be 7500 fed rebate and 2000 nys rebate. Residual will go with 46 percent .00089 mf coming from co founder on this site.
Other option is to buy for 53k with tax before the 9500 in rebates so car would let’s say 43k. My concern is owning an ev with the resales being so crappy. Plus this option would force me to eat into savings but I would have my corvette and this car paid off allowing me to bring back my savings relatively quickly.
With a hacker score of 7.0 and if my wife MUST have this car, wat is the better option in your opinion??? Thanks y’all. Yes FYI I know this car makes prob little sense when it comes to deals out there just looking for the better of the crappier options
