'15 Tiguan lease is about up and we’re looking to get into '18 SE w/ Sunroof; have two months to turn in current lease, credit score 800+. two offers below on 36/10k lease
Dealer 1 (SE no sunroof):
$320/mo, $0 down, $15,900 buyout.
Dealer 2 (SE w/ sunroof)
$326/mo, $0, 16,800 buyout.
We’re tempted to buy it out at end of lease, but arent sure yet. each dealer notes the buyout is non-negotiable. my goal is to get the monthly sub-$300 and buyout closer $15k, any key phases you pros suggest we mention to get these #s down a little further? TIA!
You cannot negotiate the buyout price. It is set by the bank and non-negotiable. The only thing you can do to reduce the monthly payment is to negotiate a larger discount off MSRP. Additionally, even if you could negotiate the buyout, a lower residual would increase your lease payment
You can lower the buyout by getting a higher mileage term.
- It will raise your monthly.
- If you DON’T buy it out and don’t use that many miles, you’ve wasted your money.
good info, thanks fellas. Timing-wise, think waiting until november/december gives us better leverage on the monthly cost?
The Sunroof is a must have it just makes the Tiguan. $ 1116 is your overall difference Saturday is End of Month. Good Luck!!! You can do it!!
agree, thanks! ^ hoping to see the ambient light issue resolved soon on this btw …
My wife has been driving it for a year and we have not had any issues. Her deal was pretty solid for a brand new body style. Can’t recall all the details but she has the SE 4motion 36/12 $350 das $350 for 35 months and it included all service visits and whatever the no cost turn in after lease is called.
I bet the odds are low you keep the car, so look at the bird in the hand- $6 x 36(?) = $216. Pound for pound, the one with the moonroof is the better deal.
