Question: should I put more money down to lower my lease payment?

Is it possible to lease a car and have a $0.00 (zero dollar) monthly payment if I make a significant down payment? I am trying to lease a car and pay no more than $100.00 a month for 36 months, what kind of down payment should I offer them?

Question: Is turning in a leased car early for another lease worth it?

Hello Markus,

My current lease on a 2015 Nissan Altima is up on 12/01/2017 and my last payment will be automatically debited on 11/01/2017. I have had an inspection and will have a lease end balance of wear/tear charges for a broken fog lamp $230, chipped windshield $55, disposition fee ~$300.

Question: Can I get a great lease deal on an all-new model car?

I’m looking at a 2018 Chevy Traverse High Country and a 2018 VW Atlas Premium. Both are brand new platforms/body styles within the past 1-5 months. Will this make it harder to get the 1%?

Yes. It will be all but impossible to get these cars near the 1% rule.

Using my system, consider it a win to get the total payment in under 1.3% of the MSRP.

Me personally:

I would NEVER, EVER get into a brand new model.

Why?
