Lease Deal Comparisons for May
For California Residents - Roadster.com
Roadster is a car buying service for California residents. Their lease deals page, which is updated monthly, shows their best pre-negotiated leases on popular models. Roadster calculates each of their lease deals using $3,500 as the drive-off amount (this includes down payment, first month's payment, and all fees) - INCLUDING TAXES. California sales tax is around 9%, so keep that in mind. By doing it this way, Roadster makes it super easy to compare deals.Some sample deals this month:
|Vehicle||Monthly Payment||Down Payment |
(includes tax & all fees)
|2017 Toyota Corolla LE||$90.27||$3,500|
|2017 Hyundai Elantra||$95.80||$3,500|
|2017 Toyota Corolla iM||$128.35||$3,500|
|2017 Ford Focus S||$138.65||$3,500|
|2017 Honda Civic LX||$161.21||$3,500|
|2017 Toyota RAV4 LE||$163.26||$3,500|
For New York Residents - Carvoy.com
For New York and tri-state area residents, I recommend you check out Carvoy's Pre-negotiated Lease Deals page. You can select the make or model you're interested in, then browse through a selection of individual models. Carvoy breaks down each lease, including your final monthly payment with all taxes and fees included (I love this feature).
The vehicles listed on Roadster and Carvoy are usually in stock at most dealerships across the country, so you should be able to negotiate similar deals outside of California and New York on your own. Just follow my step-by-step negotiation method and you should be able to match or beat any of these deals.
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.
