Special Lease Offer for California
Last month, I wrote about a new app called Fair, which lets you essentially "lease" used cars on a month-to-month basis, including basic maintenance and warranty - all at a great price. You can read my original article here.
So far, I've gotten feedback from one reader who ended up getting a 2017 Toyota Camry LE for $200 per month. He reported there were no hidden fees, and that communication was very responsive and smooth. His only complaint was that the first 3 vehicles he chose had already been leased out (but there was no bait-and-switch, Fair informed him ahead of time).
So far, so good - but I'm looking for more feedback from readers. Fair seems to be a great new service, but before I can give my seal of approval, I'd like to get at least three or four more readers to try it and give me their feedback.
Fair reached out to me with a new promotion code for you guys that is good until end of October - a $1,000 discount that goes toward the start payment on any deal (which in most cases should cover the entire start payment).
This discount is limited to the first 10 RealCarTips readers who use it, so if you live in California and want to take advantage of this, I suggest you do it soon.
Here is the discount code you should use: REALCARTIPS
Simply enter the code in the "promotions" link under the menu in the top left corner of the app.
I'm eager to get feedback from readers who end up using this service. If you do use it, please email me at [email protected] and let me know what kind of experience you had so I can share with the rest of my readers - thanks!
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
