Brand new to leasing, been reading the forums. Is $199/month $800 down prob the best we’re going to get with a 650 credit score? 650 is Transunion - Equifax pulls 680. We will take anything but this is what we were offered on the Elantra and has been the best we’ve gotten so far. Tried the Cruze and it was over $250, tried a corolla but no 18’s left at the dealership here and 19’s were at $240.
My fiance’s car just failed inspection and getting a new vehicle was not in our plans anytime soon. He literally only goes back n forth to work, less than 20 miles a day. My car is our main vehicle. I just can’t fathom spending $200 a month on a car for 3 years that’s so basic.
We haven’t been there yet… I’m literally open to anything I just feel like hyundai is bottom of the barrel and $200 is a lot for that. This is literally the worst possible time needing a car could have happened.
My brother has a credit score of under 600 (like 550, he ruined his credit and doesn’t care, never pays anything back) and got an Elantra lease for $299 a month with just first months payment DAS. In fact it was only one Hyundai dealership that would ever let him lease a vehicle in his own name because the last 2 cars that were leased there were paid off fully by my mother with him as a co signer and he totaled those 2 cars (insurance paid the dealership the remaining payoffs after they got wrecked in accidents). His current Elantra is well on its way to being destroyed as well.
