Big thanks to @mooshoofooie for putting everything above and more into the file

As always - honorable mentions
BMW i3 - seems to still be offered with the right combination of a loaner, loyalty, OL, etc <$250
Chevy Bold @ChevyPhil - Details Here - It could be got but the sample math is useful
Hyundai Ioniq EV - Details Here - if you really really want to do EV on a cheap

If we missed something let us know.


CX-5 might also become attainable later in month for FWD (maybe AWD) or potentially those with loyalty/military.

What the hell is a “choises”?


Sounds French😝

Oh, c’mon:) It’s just Russian spelling of the word when spell check doesn’t work.


Thanks! Added

I remember someone advocating for something like this a few weeks back (maybe early summer), and the general consensus was that No-one would step up to the plate and deliver… You, my friend just did! Kudos to you! Maybe the admins will create a new spot for it.

It’s a lot of work to this and I’m sure some folks will be delighted. Great initiative, boss!

Not a lease hack but worth jumping on - 2019 Chevy Bolt
Various dealers are doing 10-15k off including discounts and rebates. The average optioned model (DCFC, Confidence 1 + 2) is at 40k roughly.
With fed incentives + state incentives, we are talking about 20-23k new OTD for purchase
I am sure you can drive this as a commuter for 3 years and sell it for 13-15k…
Total Depreciation = 8-10k over 36 months
Avg monthly = 250 to 300 depending on financing, APR etc etc
Not the 99 a month I was predicting 2 years ago but sure as heck beats Steve Wozniak who bought his at full MSRP lol

Can’t really say what would be under 250 with tax/tags. That varies by state. Texas/Maryland leases are at least 30% higher then other states


That’s I’m trying to put together for leases below $250 excluding tax/reg and some room left for that to fit on average. Sure states like TX won’t fit, but we start somewhere.

Actually until @littleviolette chimed in saying to start with the simple topic I didn’t think about it either.
On the other hand I do see how it may be hard and seem daunting to filter and search through marketplace for such deals.
So we will see


For that price I’d buy one…

Optima S.

I like this thread, I’m moving it so it gets more visibility.


Also like the concept of this thread. Anything on choices under $250 with a 24 month term? Maybe there is something with a sweet-spot?

Will add it to the list tonight. There still few brokers I’m awaiting for to update their sept #s

Different brands have different sweet spots.
Toyota has 24 months for Tacoma but other not so.
I will add that info going forwards for what spec lease is 36/24 and 10/12

My Camry base is under 250/mo also without tax/tags.
Taco sr5, sr, sport as well
Tundra sr
RAV4 le
Corolla le

How about 440gc @ 20% off and loyalty and college grad :joy:

I’m at 260/mo + tax with loyalty on a cx5 Touring AWD. So not quite 250, but not too far off. 248/mo + tax with military or college grad on top of loyalty.
