(I think I prefer the SE; is it worth the difference)?
I’m in the SE;Atlanta.

This is a dealer ad so don’t assume the pricing will be honored without a little grief/effort. The SE feels almost Audi like with fake leather/heated seats/power driver seat. The S feels pretty bare bones. Look at the fine print, nice contradictions. Only 7.5k/mi/mo
Ahhh!! Thank you! Yep. I emailed and they basically copy/pasted the dealer ad.
This will be my first time leasing. Can you give me any tips/pointers on how to get them to honor this ad or what to expect them to try to do to not honor? (Only if you have time of course; but I’m a newbie so I’d be grateful for any tips on what to expect when going in for a dealers ad like this).
And especially if I want to go with the SE (pretty sure I do).
I meant terms and conditions, but it’s the same basic idea. Basically, their dealer ad has so many gotchas in it that the numbers are useless for comparison. That’s typical of dealer/manufacturer ads though; they’re generally best just ignored.
Try and calculate that. It doesn’t work. If it is truly no first payment, which may or may not be the case, then $8541/38=$224.76. Did you check to see if that stock number is still even in stock? I found it on their website, but it is showing $289/mo for me. They also list military and college grad rebates to get to their price.
Their numbers are just all kinds of screwed up.
I’m also a total noob in the So-Cal market for a Tiguan (wife is in love with it after a test drive). We got the attached quote from Dealer A after just a phone call. Went to test drive at a Dealer B and they wanted $385 for the same deal, but immediately said they’d beat the attached quote.
I’m going to set a couple hours aside today to go through Leasing 101 before shopping the offer around via email, but since this post came up, I figured I’d offer what I’ve got.
We’re hoping that by “beat,” Dealer B would be willing to bring it down to $300. This is $0 down / $0 due at signing. 36 months / 15,000 miles. Mileage is important to us. S model. We’d be willing to spend a little more for the SE, but it’s not a huge concern by any means.
