Thanks for everyone’s help. While I would love the Volvo XC90 starting MSRP $49,645 comparative to the Atlas $38,295 for SE Tech (First Trim with Leatherette to compare to Volvo’s Vinyl) and since this all started because my wife wants captains chairs Volvo’s starting MSRP is $58,095 for Captains Chairs.
I don’t think the Volvo is worth the extra $17,000 over the $41,130 MSRP I settled on.
I agree the Palisade is a nice car, but my wife is can’t get over the badge piece and my personal opinion I don’t think the exterior looks as good as others in it’s class. Interior is great, but honestly with a 4 year old, and a 2 week old the interior of a car I plan to turn in after 3 years.
I did push for the Telluride, but after speaking to a few dealers in my area they are currently asking $3,000 to $4,500 over MSRP do to demand. So figured not a smart lease.
I came on here to ask if the lease proposed to me was decent, and instead got a bunch of opinion on other cars to look into. Trust me I looked, but in the end the wife was stuck on the VW. Personally I think it’s a good looking car, and yes the interior isn’t plush luxury, she is comping from a Pilot which isn’t exactly a Bentley. Overall it’s a nice car that fits my needs.
Final numbers on my lease 36m/15k:
Sales Price $37,130
Acquisition Fee $699
Drive Offs $1,146
Payment $462.85 before taxes 7.75%
Definitely not my best lease, but I’m ok with it. Another big plus on this one was dealer covered the $1,500 I was short on my Honda Lease Payoff vs their value of my car. I was only short because there was an accident reported on the car with front and rear damage. Every dealer I talked to had me $1,500 to $1,700 short with 6 payments left on my lease.
Hardest part of this whole process was sales people not responsive which is new to me. Brokers on LH telling me they had better offers, but when I would review them they were $800 to $1,000 less in discount and always pushing higher trim.
