Lease Deals for December 2009
This December, there will be lots of great bargains on cars as dealers and automakers try to bring sagging sales up.
Included in these are lease deals offered by several manufacturers - such as Acura, BMW, Jaguar, Honda - and involve lower-than-average payments per month. Some of the best lease incentives for the season are on the following vehicles:
Land Rover - 2009/2010 Range Rover and 2009/2010 Range Rover Sport models
Jaguar - 2010 XF and XK models
Acura - 2009 MDX, 2010 RDX, 2010 RL, and 2010 TSX models
BMW - 2010 1 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, X3, X5, X6, 2009 and 2010 Z4 models
Honda - 2010 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Insight, Odyssey, and Pilot models
Infiniti - 2010 EX35, 2009 FX35, 2009 FX50, 2009 G37, 2010 M35, 2010 M45, 2010 QX56 models
Volkswagen - 2009 CC, Eos, GLI, STI, Jetta, New Beetle, Passat, Rabbit, Routan, Tiguan, and Touareg 2 models
These limited-time offers, which last through December, require a good credit score. A small down payment is often necessary as well to acquire a low monthly payment.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
