Volkswagen Offering Great "Sign and Drive" Lease Deals
The last few days of December offer the best car buying opportunities of the year.
Dealers and manufacturers are both trying to hit their yearly sales goals, and also wanting to get rid of their leftover inventory to make room for the 2012 models.
Volkswagen in particular is trying to end the year on a high note with their $0 down lease deals.
Now through January 3rd, you can lease just about any 2012 model with zero down, zero due at signing, zero security deposit, and zero first month's payment.
The special lease offer applies only to gas-powered vehicles (the diesels are excluded).
For example, you can lease the 2012 Jetta S manual for as low as $219 a month for 36 months (not including tax, title, and dealer fees).
The 2012 Passat 2.5L S can be leased for $279 a month for 36 months.
Volkswagen is also offering 0% financing for up to 60 months if you'd rather buy than lease.
All in all, these are some of the best incentives we've seen all year, so if you're interested, you'll want to act quickly before they expire.
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.
