Hi everyone I’m a newbie to the forum with a definitive need for a larger car for the next 12 months. I’m probably moving States in the next 12 months or so and will have different needs and don’t want a long term lease. I have great credit and access to the cash to buy if necessary. I’m interested in a 3 row suv and have been looking at the VW Atlas, Ford Expedition, Lincoln navigator, Audi q7.
We don’t really need all 7 seats but will generally have 2 car seats and are trying for the best solution for 3 adults and two babies in car seats.
My initial inclination was to do a lease takeover on a VW Atlas, which seemed to be possible on SAL or LT but it doesn’t seem like I’m seeing as many deals as I wanted . it also seems like you don’t know what kind of liabilities or true condition of the vehicle that you’re inheriting through someone else’s lease. I’m trying to find a lease that is under 18 months so I can get a new car as my needs change, and I think that will occur in about 12 months or so.
Alternatively I’m also wondering about and reviewing the deals that are available through Hertz right now as they scramble to sell cars. It seems like their pricing is pretty competitive for purchasing. Would welcome feedback or experience sharing in SAL and LT.
