Smart Offering the Lowest Lease Deal: $99/month
When the Smart Fortwo first came out a few years ago, it was a hot seller. The demand was high and the cars were selling for way beyond MSRP.
Today, it's a much different story. Less than 500 are usually sold each month and dealers have been desperate for months.
That's why Smart has decided to offer the lowest-cost lease deal available on the market right now: $99/month.
You can lease the 2012 Smart fortwo for only $99/month for 36 months with only $999 down.
If you're a current owner of a Mercedes, you also get $1,000 in loyalty cash back. (Mercedes is the parent company of Smart).
For big city dwellers, this might be a great option. Just keep in mind the lease only comes with 10,000 miles per year, so if you plan on driving a lot of highway miles, this isn't for you.

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.
