They WILL be slick on the financing side, so why do you even need to go to the dealer. Do you know you can buy the Audi out from the comfort of your home? And the transaction is between Audi Finance and your bank and you won’t have to deal with sleazy mike in Finance …
Edit: Florida ugh - you will need to deal with Sleazy Mike…
Mike in Finance was quick and painless. They want $1,495 in fees so I told them my contract has no fees for buying the vehicle at the end of the lease. Sales manager came out and said it’s all they can do because it’s their company policy. He did mention that other dealers may be willing to work with me but they can’t.
Called another dealer and they want $1,650 in fees. This includes financing with them.
Going to keep calling to see if any Audi dealer would be willing to work with me.
Already have financing lined up at 2.45 for 60 months.
Florida requires that the transaction be processed by someone with a dealer’s license and a brick and mortar location in Florida. If memory serves, there are some captive banks that satisfy that requirement(bmwfs I believe is one), so not all brands in FL require going through a dealer
Yes if Contract has no mention of this then Class Action law suit against VW or Audi Financial.
These companies makes tons of $$ with fees associated with lease, then fees with turn in lease then again fees if one opt to Buy after a lease. If you Add these lease fees it’s easy 3k for doing nothing.
I just bought my GTI from VW Financial after lease over. Drove only 12k in 3yr on a 36k miles lease.
No issues in getting a payoff and finance through a Credit Union . Just pay state Tax nothing else .
I think Audi Finances and VW finances should have same policies same parent company VW.
Since when buying out a car at the end of a lease had all these fees attached to it?? Does this vary by state??? I’m about to buyout my lease soon and I thought it was just the number upon agreement at the time the lease deal was made, and if you wanted to buy out the lease all you had to do was find a low rate from a bank willing to take on the financial lease agreement. What am I missing here???
