LH Calculator Not Matching Leasematic App

Has anyone ever tried the Leasematic app? I usually use it to confirm the numbers when I am at the dealership, but its not matching up to the LeaseHackr calculator.

Can anyone see why it’s not adding up?

The deals aren’t structured the same (LH is $0 DAS and LM is 1st month DAS). LH calculator doesn’t have a simple way of structuring it with only 1st month DAS, but it’s possible by playing with the down payment box.

It’s structured with 1st month DAS below and matches.


@Jon Ok thanks! So does LH roll the first month’s payment over the term of the lease?

I just assumed zero drive off always involved the first month’s payment PLUS nothing else (zero).

Rolling the 1st month (and everything else) into the monthly would be a $0 drive off lease. LH has a checkbox for such lease structures.

$0 drive off means $0 to drive off with the vehicle. What you’re talking about would be first month only das.
