Special Lease Deal Alerts
He informed me they've been working with the fleet departments at local dealerships for the past 3 years, and that they could offer some really good lease deals. Since I always welcome the chance to alert my readers to special deals, I asked him to send me the best pre-negotiated deals they had available this month.
After reviewing the numbers, I can confirm these are all excellent lease deals. Several of them are on leftover models, which explains the huge discounts, but I compared the deals to some of the best prices being offered on TrueCar.com, and most of them were able to match or beat those prices.
Here is a summary of the deals that are currently available. The "Total Payment" column on the right shows you the actual out-the-door monthly lease payment after all taxes, DMV fees, doc fees, and acquisition fees are included. This is assuming $0 down and a local tax rate of 8.35%.
