I had a dealer 180 miles away willing to quote me a price of $267.44 for a zero-down 24 mos/30,000 lease on a 2012 car. This is my first lease ever, so I am a bit confused over residual values, but the dealer being that far from home had me asking local dealers to match. The one I went to initially did not or would not get any 2012 in stock to match the price.
The second one I went to today did. Same exact car with only tax, title, doc, first month, and security deposit ($275) at signing $1636. I am pretty excited to get the Volt especially after my current commuter vehicle (minivan) just cost me 1/4th of a monthly payment in gas for less than a weekly commute. I won't be getting rid of the minivan for family trips - having a family of 6'+ teenagers (girls and boys) will make the minivan still a necessity, but it should prolong its life too.
The only question I have left is should I get the Smart Protect Lease program from Ally. How painful is the turn-in process?
