Great Lakes region.
So I get a call last week asking if I want to turn my current GM lease in early (5 months early). They said they’ll eat the payments, waive any fees, and didn’t care about any excess wear/tear. Riiiigghhhttt.
This is where I do a google search and find you guys! Per some advice here and over on edmunds, I do a quick online quote and also NADA check, and they’re all coming in about $2k under my payoff quoted by GM Financial. So again, I’m thinking this dealer is just trying to get me in the door. I call around a couple other dealers to see what their Bolt deals were and what they’d offer for me lease. I’m getting lease offers in the $8-9K range. Hard. Pass.
So I stop in to the original dealer expecting to hear why that was just a “hypothetical” offer, but they were 100% serious.
I managed to negotiate 12.5% off the premier, as they had a few on the lot and we’re getting close to snowy time. My incentives were $6750 lease cash, $3000 Costco, $1500 Loyalty.
One-pay was $6000 out the door for everything. I don’t get a fancy state rebate or 0% tax like some of these awesome deals on here, but overall I think a score of 22 years is pretty great. My car insurance went up a whopping $22/year.
This was a strange experience for me, as I love cars and test drive everything. This time I really didn’t care about the drive/comfort or anything with the car (I didn’t even test drive it), as I was just looking at something cheap for the next few years. I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised so far driving around town. I have no issues with the seat, and the “rough” ride is no different than my impala and it’s massive rims.
Thanks for all the info on here - I wouldn’t have been confident pushing for that discount off the MSRP had I not already been aware others have done. You da real MVP…
