Like many of you here, the Leasehackr team spends a lot of time searching for lease program data. Over time, we have developed our own methodology for doing so. We thought we would build this search methodology into the Leasehackr Calculator so you too can conveniently search for residual value and money factor!
The new Lease Program Query tool scrapes the open web and programmatically cross-checks the data against sources we consider generally reliable. The displayed residual value and money factor data are generally accurate; if we cannot confirm the accuracy of the data, then we leave it out. Incentives data may be incomplete for some brands but we share what we have.
That said, the internet is a wild place and our tool is not foolproof. At the end of the day, expertise is still required to hack a lease. Manually cross-check the data with other sources as you see fit. Let us know in Suggestions if you spot any error. We rectify inconsistencies in the query tool as we see them.
The Lease Program Query tool is an add-on to the Calculator. It does not impact the Calculator’s core functionality.
We hope our Lease Program Query tool could serve as a quick, helpful reference for your research. If you love what we’ve built, you can show us some love by contributing to our Tech Support Fund. We are always experimenting with new ways to help you score a great deal while maintaining a healthy, sustainable community.
You can also support us by spreading the word about Leasehackr via social media so more people can benefit from our collective knowledge. [Note: Please omit sharing the Lease Program Query tool. We don’t want our sources to go away, for whatever reason. Keep the feature within the community and use it while available!]
