We’ve leased for 15 years but I figured I would prep for a future mortgage application by getting rid of the payments. I recently bought a five year old Acura RLX (great deal on a marginal car) and my wife’s Sienna lease is almost over. After being unhappy with this RLX purchase I’m back to keeping one lease.
I’m agnostic on the vehicle. I just want a comfortable, well appointed V6 with a 3rd row (3rd row mostly for hauling other people’s kids).
I’ve leased an MDX (loved it) RX350 (liked MDX better) Xc90 5 cyl (horrific), Owned a Tahoe
Would love to be in the $300s even though that may prove challenging. Willing to shell out MSDs. If I have equity or get a breakeven offer on the Sienna I’m ready to rock. Sienna lease is due in Sept. Current payment for a 2017 SE is $434 including tax. 800+ credit
I’m also open to opinions on the cars on my radar:
VW Atlas - heard about lemon law issues
Hyundai Palisades - I worked on a commercial for it and was impressed
Kia Telluride (I’d never though I would use the word KIA)
Volvo (maybe having a 5 cyl was my downfall)
Chevy Traverse? or GMC equiv
Open to other 3rd row V6s I’ve overlooked
I’m in the southbay in LA
