    Yep, and a common misconception is gap insurance would cover the money down. It won't.

    Nope - it only covers the amount owed if it's higher than the vehicle's value. If you put money down, you owe less... so the (usually required) gap insurance would be of less value to you too.

    Save the downpayment money, and just use it to help cover the lease payments.

    GAP insurance is provided by the Lessor though, right?

    I'm not a leasing expert, nor do I play one in these forums. :) I *believe* it is provided through them, though the lessee will, of course, pay for it.

    It depends on the leasing company. For example, last I checked Toyota Financial does not include GAP in its leases but has no disposition fee, Hyundai Financial includes GAP but also has a $450 dispo fee. You pay for it one way or another. Either way check with the dealer if its included or not, chances are if its not included they will be interested in selling it to you.

    I am open to being corrected, but I believe that most lease finance companies require gap insurance.

    I would like to hear some reports from Coupe owners. How does is drive? How is the comfort and quiet at highway speed, and how is handling when you push it on twisty roads?

    but I believe that most lease finance companies require gap insurance.

    I am not sure, however, I would say that most just include it. The last three vehicles I leased (two through Hann financial, and one through Hyundai Financial did. However, back in 2000 on my Solara it was optional with Toyota Financial.

    What's disposition fee?
  • bodble2bodble2 Posts: 4,519
    I would say it'd be like any RWD car. No snow tires....big trouble!
  • tjc78tjc78 JerseyPosts: 5,025
    Hyundai Financial and many other leasing companies have a dispo fee or end of lease fee. I am not sure what it is for, but its there. IIRC the amount is $450. I always consider this in the total cost of the lease.

    i never lease due to the mileage(350 miles/week). the current lease offer is $259/12k miles. can i pay a higher monthly rate for more miles per year? what is the monthly increase if i wanted 3k more miles per year? curious as i would consider leasing if mileage was increased. thanks to anyone who has insight...clearly i don't!!
  • bodble2bodble2 Posts: 4,519
    We're on our second lease with BMW Financial for our Mini, and I don't think they have this dispo fee, at least not to my knowledge!

    Most lease programs have different mileage options. We chose the 16,000 KM option on our lease, and it's turning out that we don't pile up mileage as much as we had thought (probably because we stopped doing driving vacations). So we're trying our darnest to not use our other car just so we can use what we're paying for on the leased car! :P

    I finally got to test drive a 2.0T & the 3.8 back to back.

    The 2.0T is pretty impressive for what it is. If I had to compare the engine to something, I could point to the 3.0 V-6 in my wife's Audi A6. I was driving it with the AC on and hardly noticed it in terms of making the engine hesitate. I'm sure some of you can appreciate that considering running A/C on a car with a 4-banger meant you weren't going up any hills! The handling felt confident and composed, even over uneven road surfaces. The sales guy asked me to turn onto a long empty street and take it to about 45-50 mph and then slam on the brakes. The stop was effortless, no pull to either side and the brake pedal was firm.

    The 3.8 was more impressive simply because of the greater power output. The throttle response was clean, but not as crisp as what you would find in an Audi or BMW. The body was very rigid as I took it up an entrance ramp that had a significant dip from the road surface to the curb, at an angle and the body didn't seem to flex much at all. Going around turns and curves didn't produce much body roll either.

    All in all...both cars were a pleasure to drive. The only thing I can really knock either version on is the lack of torque which you notice when you mash the gas pedal. Other than that, if someone were looking at a G37 Coupe, Z37, 3-Series coupe, A5 and didn't want to spend that kind of coin. The Genesis Coupe is a very viable option. Heck, with the money you save, you can do a few performance mods to make it a bit more exciting.

    I just noticed in the papers that there is a$4K+ rebate or price rollback on the 2.0T, making the starting price under $20K CAD. If there are no fine print or other catch, that would make the 2.0T one heck of a bargain, IMO.
  • I live in lower Westchester County, New York and have read that my 2010 3.8 Grand Touring will need snow tires, and perhaps soon.

    I have yet to hear from any similar owner that feels the all weathers would work well on this Rear Wheel Drive car.

    With that said...

    1) My mechanic said that I should not only get new snow tires, but also the wheels for them, which he says is ultimately the better approach for easy on and easy off.

    2) When is the best time to by these snow tires and/or to put them on, as in New York it usually doesn't snow till December at best, but can also snow tomorrow.

    3) There appear to be many choices in these tires, some more expensive than others, and does it pay to spend more, or...?

    4) What is the best way to buy these tires and wheels? Online? At my local Mavis Tires dealer or local tire brick and mortar retailers? Or should I have my mechanic take care of the buying and installing?

    Thanks for any advice or insight, much appreciated.

  • Hi, Everyone. I'm looking at buying a 2010 Genesis coupe 3.8 automatic with 73,052 miles - a lot in a short time - at a local Hyundai dealer, asking price is $17,208. Any advice on whether or not this is a good idea, what kinds of things can/will/could go or be go wrong. Need to know how the car does in snow and ice - we get both here in SE OH. Thanks in advance for your comments! Cogito, ergo zoom...
