Special Lease Deal On 2012 Volkswagen Passat
This is a completely revised new model.
It’s the first vehicle to be built in the company’s brand spanking new factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
And, the company is offering a surprisingly good new lease deal on this car.
This is the first Volkswagen to be assembled in the company’s own U.S. factory since the company shut down its Westmoreland, Pennsylvania, plant in 1988.
Rated "excellent" by leaseguide.com, the deal requires a down payment of $1,780, with a monthly payment of $219 for 36 months, with an allowance of 36,000 miles.
This applies only to the Passat 2.5L S with automatic transmission and the Appearance Package.
While that car is towards the lower end of the Passat range, VW is also offering a low interest loan on purchases for its entire Passat lineup.
If you have excellent credit, you could qualify for a 1.9% loan with no down payment.
