Currently leasing a 2016 C300 and lease ends in about 2 months. I received a “lease offer” from the MB dealer where I leased the car. The offer includes 1) waiving the remaining payments 2) waiving MB disposition fees 3) waiving up to $500 toward excess wear and tear and 4) $5000 bonus for next C/GLC class (1000 from MB and 4000 from the dealer).
When I reached out to the dealer, they just keep saying this $6000 bonus == dealer discount. For example, if I pick a GLC300 with MSRP of $50000, their sale price will be $44000. I thought this “bonus” is normally on top of the dealer discount like BMW’s lease support but it seems not. This just doesn’t make sense to me because I just feel l like they are playing the wording game and literally not giving any “dealer discount” to the car. The dealer also not willing to apply this to a loaner vehicle.
Is this normal?
