I can get a loaner S class for way under the one percent rule, been eyeing one in particular for my father for a few weeks now. Also, NEWS FLASH, some certain 7 series’s (tagged by vin, most of them gone now though) can be had within the one percent rule as well. (some pushing 25k off)
Bring out the sanitizing wipes for the loaner. Who knows how many people farted on it. There is a reason why they are discounted that much, bc no one in their right mind would pay that much. BTW, if its end of year and you are getting the deals, it doesn’t mean you are a good negotiator. ONLY means the car went through a year of depreciation sitting in the hot sun or getting abused as a loaner. YOUTUBE rental and loaner cars
You are missing the point. It it has 1-5k miles on it, it’s a used vehicle selling as a new. Tire, brake maintnance cost, no new car smell factored in to the discount that you as the new leasee have to pay for
I like nice things. If it is “second hand” is irrelevant. A car is a depreciating asset. The whole point of this site is to mitigate the cost you are paying for that depreciating asset. The money you are saving for giving up a few k miles pays for itself many times over if you get the right deal. Knowledge is power embrace it.
Not denying a car is a depreciating asset. But I don’t like to sacrifice my requirements just to get a deal and compare it to a ‘full price new’ car and act like its the best thing since sliced bread
Even better why don’t you just purchase an off lease for half the cost of msrp and drive it until the wheels fall off. You will sure get your money worth… didn’t think you would do that, since you have requirements also
You know a loaner could save you, in some scenarios, up to 200 a month. So if you want to spend another 7.2k in a lease for something that has 1k less miles, be my guest. Hell, why don’t you pay extra so that the car you pick has 3 miles versus 17 miles on the odometer.
