38,515As far as this specific lease goes, you never mentioned the selling price of the 9-3 that you are interested in leasing. This is an important number for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing the price of the car that you want to lease you don't know how good a price you are getting it for. The second reason is that one needs the selling price of a vehicle that they want to lease is that it is necessary to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion of this deal if you let me know what its selling price is.

38,515You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the 9-3 that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing what this vehicle's selling price is in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion of this deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

38,515Saab's current base lease rate for the 2007 9-3 SportCombi is 3.5% with the payment of a security deposit at lease signing for both of the terms that you mentioned. Make sure that the dealer you are working with uses this rate to calculate your monthly payment.

6Can you tell me where I can find more details on the Saab early lease termination? Is this only when you purchase/lease another Saab? Or does it apply to any new GM lease or purchase?

Thanks!

19519511If they vary by model, I am interested in a 9-3 2.0T Convertible or a 9-3 2.0T Wagon (Combi) or a 9-5 2.3T Wagon (Combi). I'd be interested in a short (24- or 27-month) lease or a longer one (up to 36- or 39-months.) If it matters, I'd like 12,000 miles/year (but could possibly live with 10,000 miles/year.)

Also, since Saab seems to be quoting lease rates as interest percentages (i.e. 3.35%) would it be accurate to convert this number into a "money factor" figure for lease calculation by dividing it by 2400?

THANK YOU for any information anyone can provide!

38,515Saab's base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2008 8-3 2.0T Combi with 12,000 miles per year are 4.5% and 70%. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are 4.5% and 58%.

Saab's base lease rate and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2008 8-5 2.3T Combi with 12,000 miles per year are 3.35% and 69%. The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are 3.35% and 57%.

You are correct, you can convert Saab's published lease rates into approximate money factor equivalents by dividing them by 2400.

11Just wondering if the $2,500 marketing support on the 2008 9-3 sportcombi is compatible with the October leasing program. The answer makes a significant difference in the monthly payments...

Thanks.

13The car I am looking at is a 9-3 with the following options:

Moonroof Package

Cold Weather package

The price I am being quoted is:

Base - 26,214

Moonroof - 1,068

Cold Weather - 490

Destination - 745

Port - 130

Local Advertising - 300

Total Cost - 28,947+500 = $29,447

He is quoting me a monthly payment of $431.79 using a 4.35% rate and a 56% residual.

Here are the upfront fees:

First month payment - 431.79

Security Deposit - $450

Registration Fee - $167.16

DMV - $5

Documentary Fee - $350

Acquisition Fee - $670

Tax on upfront items - $71.23

Total upfront fees - $2,145.18

What do you think of the deal. Are the advertising and port fees realistic? How about the documentary fee and acquisition fee (that's a $1,000 between them)?

Thanks,

Steve
