Need some experienced eyes on this. Searched a lot and used what I’ve learned. Ready to pull the trigger today but just want a second opinion.
2018 Volvo XC90 T5 AWD
- Convenience Package
- Heated Steering and Front Seats
- 20" Rims
39 months, 12k miles, $0 down, $0 signing, no MSD = $640 per month w/tax
Sale price: $47,025 with all incentives (14% below MSRP)
Acquisition: $995 (marked up $300 but won’t back down, argued into over discount)
I’m willing to throw about $2500 cash at it either through MSD’s or 1st month, acquisition etc. A lower payment is priority over long term savings but maybe a mix of both will work. What’s the best combo?
Assuming it’s a Momentum, I would look at 36 months which gives you a bump in residual factor (59%) @ the same MF. It’s another 10/month but it’ll lower your overall lease cost and puts you in a better position 3 years to negotiate at the end of the year.
Dropping 2,500 MSDs would only lower your payment by about 10/month.
MSD all the way. You can’t beat those returns unless you’re playing with Bitcoin ha
Actually the math works out better over the life of the lease when putting $2700 down and $2300 MSD vs 10 MSD’s and zero down. The lease overall ends up $50 cheaper at end with a lot lower payment to boot. Of course risking the $2,300 loss is I total the car but given the math on how unlikely that is, the risk is worth it.
Also, I hold BTC, LTC, ETH, XRP, and EOS
