History: Currently in a FINANCED 2017 Tahoe, paying $985/month. Payoff is worth its trade-in value today, so I am looking to wash my hands of it. Objective: Get into a similar sized SUV and save a few hundred dollars a month by leasing (39mo/15k) - no I don’t want a minivan, yes, my wife requires the space (1 toddler/1 infant) Question: Is there anything truly out there that is a good lease deal in this category?
Currently working with an offer on a 2021 Atlas and a 2020 Q7. Both are pretty terrible but I am wondering if really have more wiggle room to get a better deal. I know I can bring the sell price down on both, but honestly with the MF and Residuals (Atlas .00146/55% and Q7 .001000/51%) can I do much more?
Let me know you thoughts and appreciate any guidance.
I’ll just focus on the first: if you can live without a third row, and you don’t care if it’s purple with pink interior and no equipment (meaning other than “big” you DNGAF about its appearance or what packages it does/doesn’t have) possibly.
If you want (for instance) a black/black with third row and tech package, highly unlikely.
Are you shopping the deal or the ride?
One of the few SUVs leasing well right now. MDX base also. The residual and MF on the two you put up (which really don’t have incentives) are enough to tell me they aren’t worth grinding on any further, IMO.
Also: what does this mean exactly? Do you even need three rows? The outgoing Tahoe’s third row is pretty bleak so would something like a Tiguan or CX9 with an emergency third row work? Or a two-row SUV?
It’s the later. Big (wife’s requirement) with bells and whistles (my requirement). Safe to say I want my cake and to eat the whole thing in one bite.
Basically I am looking for confirmation that I am playing in a space where I don’t have much room to do something like that, so most likely I won’t get a great deal. If i plug numbers into the calculator and see a score of something like a “7” I cringe, but I am realizing I may have to suffer like that.
jeisensc is very right though. You should definitely deal check those. I can’t speak to the Audi, but that Atlas should be 12-15% under MSRP. I’m working on an Atlas for my wife right now and I’m 13.5% off MSRP. Just a heads up. Good luck!
I recently shopped the 2020 Traverse which is the same size (roughly) as the Tahoe and while the deals aren’t amazing when you add Loyalty and Supplier (if either of you are in health care, for example), the deals were decent.
I was getting 0 drive off and ~390 + tax for 36/12k on a ~44k LT with leather. Located in the SF Bay Area.
I’m all about free exchange of info. I also acknowledge that market is a factor. I’m in AZ. I’m finalizing a 2021 Volkswagen Atlas V6 SE R-Line Technology. I’m like 13.51% under MSRP. I have to think there’s still some room in your deal either way.
Currently in WA and got a 2021 2.0 SEL Premium MSRP 49494
Sale Price 42990
494.55 pre tax
We had a trade but only got 200 over payoff so not much. I think you should have more room.
