Toyota Offering $149/month Lease Deal on Corolla
From now until June 1st, Toyota is offering outstanding car lease deals.
You can lease the Toyota Corolla LE, nicely equipped, for $149 a month (36 month lease, 36,000 total miles allowed, $1,999 due at signing). The $1,999 includes a $1,200 down payment, first month's payment, and a $650 acquisition fee.
A lower down payment means the monthly payment amount goes up. With $500 down, the payment goes to $169. No down payment (but include first month's payment and the acquisition fee) and the monthly payment goes to $182.
Why such great deals? The car's price has been discounted about $2,000, the lease-end residual value has been set higher than normal, and the lease money factor is .00002 (equivalent to a 0.5% APR interest rate.) All these factors combine for a very low monthly lease payment for this fine automobile.
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.
