Some of you may have seen my post yesterday about feeling bad about a lease deal. With the help of some bright minds on the forum, and my gift of gab, and a dealer that was willing to make a customer satisfied… I was able to go from paying around $1500 over msrp… and $315 monthly to $267.78.
Once again I would like to thank the mods on this forum for helping me last night, although I was the butt of some jokes, it turned out better than when I left and I am now even more educated than before.
I had the opportunity to actually walk away from this deal free and clear possibly… that was my final chess move, but I did take some ownership and keep the vehicle bc at the end of the day its a great vehicle. There are better deals out there but considering I paid no adm, got to restructure a deal I signed, and I actually made the dealer get the vehicle I wanted about 500 miles away I am happy… also the first dealer I went to, had a 10k adm for the same vehicle.
If anyone would like a more extensive write up about everything I went through I will provide it and upload it in the proper place. This forum saved my family and I about $1700 over the period of my loan. And I also can leave feeling like I didn’t get as bent over as before.
I received $9500 for trade, I threw dwn $1700 to pay up front taxes and fees. I am almost certain there is about $500 unaccounted somewhere as my payment should be around like $255 but it is what it is
There is probably some truth to this. Kia just doesn’t produce or allocate many of the top trim models. Telluride SXP go for MSRP at a select few dealers across the country but only if you order from the factory and wait months. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone on the Telluride forum get an SXP off the lot without an ADM.
