Sharing the deal I signed this weekend to give others a frame of reference for their own search. It’s definitely not the best deal you’ll read about but I ran out of time to get my wife into a new vehicle so I had to get it done. We started the process to sell our mint condition Dodge Durango to Vroom on Tuesday night and it was gone by Friday. I was thinking I would have at least two weeks to find a great deal before Vroom picked up the vehicle.
My wife narrowed her search down to the Q5 and the XC60 and then made her decision based on the massage seats in the Inscription-Crazy I know but she works hard and deserves it.
I emailed and shopped several dealers throughout California. Most of the quotes were way high. I started throwing out some pretty aggressive numbers to test the waters but no one would budge on an Inscription. If I was willing to talk about an R-Design or move to a XC90 then the conversation about a deep deal might have gone somewhere with a few local dealers. I had offers in the $725-775 plus tax range with large DAS amounts and they refused to listen to counter-offers. I still haven’t heard from them.
I knew I was out of time by Friday and so I began a conversation with @Benedetto to make the lease happen for the best possible price. His offer was for the exact vehicle my wife wanted-every option and color for $599 a month plus tax with $2000 DAS for a 12/36 lease. That was $100 per month cheaper than my next best offer with a higher DAS cost.
In hindsight, when I realized I was in a time crunch, I wish I would have just hired @Benedetto right away. The process was efficient and painless and he delivered exactly what he promised.

$4k for wheels?? The wheels on my 911 weren’t even that much. Looking at the sticker, the 20" inscription wheels on ours were $800. Now with that said, there’s a bunch of other expensive add-ons for sure…
Hi. I’m new to this board. @Mike O or @Benedetto, are you saying that on the above lease, there was an additional $7500 paid in security deposits? If so, Drive off was $2K plus $7500? Thanks for the clarification.
It was $6500 for a refundable security deposit which lowers the MF. This results in a lowered monthly payment of approximately $45 or $540 a year. A $540 annual ROI on $6500 is pretty good as long as you don’t need the money. It’s locked up for the term of the lease.
