Hello. First time leaser, but my wife has had a few. I currently have a purchased 2017 VW touareg wolfsburg that I’m trying to get out of. It has been at a local dealer for 53 days now due to a sunroof leak issue. Due to this, VW would not buy it back, but offered me an incentive of 10% of the msrp of a new VW or Audi to use as down payment, I just need to trade the touareg in at a VW or Audi dealer. According to the letter, I’m still eligible for any other loyalty/conquest/whatever too.
I would love an e-tron, but I’m not sure if they’re budging much on price. I don’t drive a ton, under 10k/yr, so i’m looking for any lease deals on SQ5’s, Q7’s, Q8’s or e-trons because I still want something that can tow 3500lbs.
Any information any one has would be super helpful.
And 10% isn’t a whole ton off, you should fall for that. I got like 13 percent off my SQ5 with no loyalty. So I would even be seeking lemon law, you might need to get a lawyer or submit the formal letter letting them know you seeking it. Then talk.
The thing is that I’m past the 2 years/18,000 miles here in NY, not by much, but enough that no one will do anything for me.
The offer they gave me of 10% off is on top of whatever deal I can negotiate.
The 10% would be the msrp of the car, not the lease, so basically if a car listed for 50,000, it would be 5,000 down no matter what deal is negotiated.
I have been in a loaner for all 53 days. First was a hammered Nissan Sentra for 5 weeks and a meh Passat for the last 2 and a half weeks.
How are you going to offload the touareg, sounds like you’ll have to dump it carvana vroom etc or try trading it at a dealer that doesn’t know it’s broken on a nice dry day. The 10% offer sounds pretty good as long as you can ditch the trade without taking a bath
To be quite frank, if the only issue here is a sunroof leak, I think you are much better off financing a Q8 or E-Tron if that’s what you really want. If you can sell your touareg for around 30k if not more, negotiate 10% off a Q8, and receive an additional 10% from VW, you’ll have a really reasonable monthly. The MF on these is atrocious and the incentives are weak.
Gregg my wife had same problem yesterday… Tiguan went in for recall to fix sunroof…it rained after we got it back and water soaked everything. taking them two weeks just to get car in shop. I’m furious and corporate won’t do anything. I’ll be furious if it’s in there for that long
