Hey, people. So I'm dying to get a Volt, and when I saw the add on both Chevrolet.com and TV claiming the Volt could be leased for $249/month with $2,470 down for 24 months, I flew to the dealership. Long story short, they ended up asking for $349/month with @$2,500 down on a price of $39,950.
Here are some mitigating factors that MAY help explain some of the hike in price:
I opted for a 15,000 mile/year limit.
"Taxes, title, license and dealer fees" (as it says on Chevy.com) were not included in the $249 quote.
Here's my question: Am I being taken for a ride? If so, how bad is it? I know taxes where I am (MA, 6.25%) add a little ($249 x 1.0625 = $264.56), but I dunno, I think these guys may be trying to scam me.
(FWIW, I made my own Excel spreadsheet that's based on the lease calculation formula, and with 1% interest and 57% depreciation, I got $316.)
Should I expect something closer to $264.56, or is baiting and switching just a part of the leasing game?
Any replies or advice would be appreciated.
BTW, it was Herb Connolly Chevy. Not tryna bash them, just thought it may be useful info.
