Worst leases you've seen


#729

I hope this is a posting error, $799 per month + $34,260 cash due at signing

Do you think it’s maybe a one time pay lease posted incorrectly?

$34,260/36 is roughly $951 a month


#730

I called the local jeep dealer to get a rough lease price on a new Jeep SRT GC. $1300 + 2k down for 15/36.

uh…no.


#731

That’s not so crazy. They get into the $100k area pretty quick. Once you’re in the six digit playground, $2k down is just past 1st month payment and $1,300 minus tax is like $1,150 . . . Maybe not for you, but not by any means worst deal worthy.

Edit: I was thinking hellcat Grand Cherokee or whatever it is called. My bad.


#732

Yeah, it’s a 70k SRT, not the trackhawk.


#733

Again, my mistake. $1,300 for a $70k ‘Murican car is worst deal worthy!


#734

SMH, the same people paid over 1,000 for hellcat chargers/challengers, IIRC…and then Matt Farrah was paying some stupid payment on a Focus RS


#735

Isn’t he the one paying through the nose for an Ascent too?


#736

Is Matt Farah a youtube “auto journalist?”


#737

Supposedly but there are many better ones. I dont know why anyone watches his channel


#738

Farrah has an Ascent as well? That other annoying guy Rob something is overpaying for his Ascent, by his own admission.


#739

You’re probably right, I only have room in my admittedly limited brain for DeMuro, Hoovie, Tavarish and Mr. Regular. I lose track of all my YouTube car people after around that point.


#740

The only three I follow is Savagegeese, Mr. Regular, and Engineering Explained. I personally think the rest of them don’t know what they’re doing.

I just like all the allegory and metaphor Mr. Regular makes.


#741

Haven’t followed in a while but SG is good. Will have to check out the other two.


#742

Maybe not the worst, but worth a laugh. Visited a Volvo dealer this past Saturday to check out a demo S60. $37k MSRP. They hit me at $500/mo for 36/15 with first month at signing! I tried talking through it and they came in at $457. Asked to look at the details … he was using full MSRP minus incentives and then adding back “floor plan.” hahahahaha.
Oh, and he also manually entered the residual $1500 lower than it should have been. Wow. This dude handles the money? Good god. It USED to be a good dealership.

For comparison, I got the same MSRP vehicle down to $310 with first month at signing at another dealer yesterday.


#743

My guess is that the checkbook isn’t balanced at that place…


#744

Because it is a demo and there is the mileage penalty? But for $1,500 it must have 7.5k miles.


#745

Nope. He was off AFTER the penalty. I showed him the math and he just typed in the correct number. I then started in about how he is asking more than MSRP before incentives. It was pretty absurd. I felt bad for the salesguy just standing there watching me fix the SM’s math.

After we left, my wife said “I’m surprised you haven’t been blackballed yet.”


#746

Mr. Regular is an incredible combination of gearhead, college professor, philosopher and dick & fart joke maker. I love his stuff.


#747

I was given numbers from Dodge the other day on a Charger RT 2019 43k MSRP.

  1. 1k down.

I actually ry threw the sales sheet away there and left.


#748

I just got again one…
This is a loner over 6000 miles
