Need Advice: My lease is coming to an end in December......Suggestions?

Hello Hackrs
I hope everyone is doing well. For the last few weeks, i have been on this forum looking at different deals going around.

At the moment I have a 2016 Camry SE that I pay $214 a month ( I paid 0 down, no first month payment, and taxes rolled in payments). The lease will end Dec 2018. I am looking for a similar deal for an Accord or even a BWM/Mercedes. My max limit is $400. I am in the Maryland area…Look forward to hearing some offers/advice…Thanks

Hire a broker if you don’t want to do the legwork. If you want to do some leg work start reading.


It isn’t even October yet. Wait until December

with my current deal, it took me 3 days to negotiate as i followed the 1% rule…

there is a new guideline called the .5%. Also its not a rule its a measuring stick. As a heads up Accords may lease real well in December.

My lease is up in December too. I determined my budget, and for the past several months I have been test driving different cars to see which one I liked best. Once I narrowed it down, I used sites like TrueCar and KBB to get an idea of discounts, then I used Leasehackr and Edmunds forums for my specific cars, and determined target lease prices. I decided on the Audi A5, and determined which options I wanted. I emailed several dealers to start a dialogue and get quotes. I narrowed down to a few dealers and made them compete for my business until I got my targeted discount. I then put down a deposit and ordered my A5 for delivery in late November/early December, to coincide with the end of my current lease. So that way I am getting the exact car I want, exactly when I want it. I won’t know the exact lease payment until I take delivery due to changing incentives, but either way I will be within my budget.

I am in the same situation as usman. My 2016 Camry SE lease will be over by 12/31/18. I got a great lease by learning from this forum. My current lease is 3-year/12K miles a year (Sacramento area). Zero drive out with $144.40/month for 35 months. Thank you so much!!

I just start looking for a 2019 E300 base model lease with 3-year/12K miles a year. I am not too sure if it is too early for me to get a good deal?

I don’t mind to have 2 lease cars overlap since my current lease payment is so low. Any advise?

Check out I just made 2K selling my 2016 e-golf lease to them, could not have gone any smoother.

Get a 2019 Lexus ES350 please. I wanna see what kinda deal can be had and pix in the Trophy Garage.
