Malibu 2016 lease options in North Carolina

I’m trying to get the lowest payment possible. I’m obsessed after reading about your free car post. I got a dealer offer of 19,900 for a 2016 Malibu. What’s my best bet or strategy to follow in Nc. I can’t seem to find any incentives or rebates online. Help! If you have any other suggestion of a similar vehicle appreciated. I just need something safe and realiable. But with the lowest payment possible for now. Also what’s tier 1 and tier 2 credit. What’s the range? Mine is around 708

Malibu or Malibu Limited? Deals are better on the latter, but inventories are running low. Also, which trim – e.g., 1LT?

Malibu 1lt. I think the dealer I’m dealing with still has some Malibu limited. I just got concerned about people mentioning very little space in rear seats.
I also got a true car offer of 23,376.00 for a Equinox.
I’m shopping around to get the best deal possible.

Thanks @michael for your help

You should be able to significantly beat TrueCar pricing with a bit of negotiation. Remember, you are the customer and you can lease a car anywhere.

Thank you. I just rejected my third dealer. We come to a price agreement and once we get to leasing part. They go back on everything saying that is not for leading but for retail. I don’t know if the state is particularly difficult or what. I haven’t seen any succes from this state in the forum.

Incentives differ for purchases and leases. Be sure to deselect incentives on TrueCar to get the “selling price”, and then apply the applicable incentives above.

Thank you @michael i Sint know if NC is more difficult than most but I haven’t been successful negotiating with dealers. Once they realize is for lease. They scratch everything claiming that those incentives are for retail only.
