Toyota Offering $149/month Lease Deal on Corolla
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, CarsDirect, and NADAGuides 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.
