Hi y’all! I’m coming off a 2021 XC40 lease and looking to get a 2024 XC40. My prior lease was great - MSDs down to zero MF was awesome! I’m a little irritated that you can only get the Pilot Assist on the Ultimate. My 2021 was a base trim with all the options, which felt like a better deal. Oh well, I guess.
This is the current deal that my dealer has offered. It’s very close - dealer offered $499/mo, which makes the MSD $5k, not $5.5k. I live in DC, dealer in is MD.
$1000 Costco and $500 Loyalty feels incomplete. I don’t know what active XC40 offers are - am I missing a discount?
MF is 0.0015 AFTER the MSDs. Feels like it should be a little lower with MSDs. Am I off base? How do I work to lower this as much as I can?
Great - the $2k discount would make a huge difference. Why would they have excluded it? Do I just… “remind” them that it should also be applied?
I assume they’re marking up the base MF from 0.00175 to 0.002 to make extra on the loan. So, likely just to make the loan more profitable.
What’s the best way to step forward with them? Is it enough to say something like “Add in the Lease Bonus and lower the base MF to 0.00175 and I’ll sign today” sufficient to close the deal? My prior lease was organized by a broker, so I’m trying this out myself for the first time
Go with a broker again, as I suggested. You will get better deal. Or you can tell your dealer that you want buy rate and 10% off before all incentives (they rolled $2k lease cash into discount). Is it Bright or Dark?
A naive question then, I guess - am I required to return the Lease to the dealership that I started at? Or can I shop around the lease return equity to other Volvo dealerships? Supposing that those dealerships also have the same model available. It wasn’t terribly clear from the language on the lease itself.
