Opinions Chevy Lease Deal

Anyone have an opinion of the Chevy Lease deal on Tahoe’s and Suburbans?



Please read the faq and familiarize yourself with this site instead of posting nonsense.

Thanks for the tip, I just read the FAQ and nowhere in there does it say not to post a question. Perhaps instead of posting an unhelpful retort to my apparent ignorance of an unspoken etiquette faux pas, you might lend a new guy some helpful advice… which I thought was the point of this forum? (big yellow box to the right has some good suggestions on how to format a post as well)

It sounds like you didn’t read the FAQ.


$599/mo with $8900 due at signing plus TTL.

I don’t think anybody here is going to have a positive opinion on this deal structure.

Stop looking at national offers and start building your own calculator instead.

If you are lazy, the Rodo app is a good short cut.


$9,400 upfront doesn’t included taxes or dealer fees.

Or destination/delivery.

Or license/ government fees.

Or options.

Have you listened to AM radio lately? :slight_smile:

Scroll all the way to the bottom of that page.

Price excludes destination freight charge, tax, title, license, dealer fees and optional equipment.

Manufacturer advertised specials are essentially never a good deal. They’re also never what the deal appears to be on first pass either, as there is a gigantic asterisk worth of costs left out. Often, they include a laundry list of incentives that one likely doesn’t qualify for as well.

Remember, lease programs are highly dependent on region, personal qualifications, tax rates, etc.

We always recommend the following method before you ever contact a dealership. If you do all of the work up front, you’ll have a stress free dealer experience and set yourself for success.

  1. Read Leasing 101 (EDITORIAL | LEASEHACKR) to understand how to calculate a lease payment and the variables. Monthly payment is an output, not an input!!
  2. Pick a specific vehicle that you want to target
  3. Gather the current MF, RV and incentives from Edmunds forums for your zip code
  4. Research the LH marketplace and other deals that have been made recently on your vehicle - what was their pre-incentive discount? How did their lease terms differ?
  5. Plug your numbers into the LH calculator (CALCULATOR | LEASEHACKR), and use a pre-incentive discount similar to what you have seen
  6. Create a target deal, this is what you’re trying to negotiate to. You can try different terms, selling price discount, etc. and see how your monthly payment is affected. It is also possible that different trims of your vehicle may have different MF and RV (i.e. this is very common with GM), so make sure that you look into that. Come up with a set of inputs that give you the output that you want - your desired monthly payment.

With a target price determined, you now have a deal to pursue and compare dealer offers against. More importantly, you have a solid foundation to work from.

Thank you!
