Volkswagen Offering Great "Sign and Drive" Lease Deals
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.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
