    Thanks gdfaulkner. I'm glad that you find it helpful. General Motors is indeed featuring 2-year leases on Buicks this month.

    Here's a comparison of the 2 and 3 year programs for you.

    Ally's April base lease rate and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 Buick Lacrosse Touring with 15,000 miles per year are 1.0% and 50%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are 1.1% and 43%.

    General Motors is providing a $2,850 cash incentive on 2-year and a $4,375 cash incentive on 3-year leases of this car through Ally.

    Hi forbin404. I haven't looked into exactly what documentation is required, but I suspect that the registration will probably be enough proof.

    Hi scandalous. Given the large cash incentives that are currently available on leases of the Lacrosse I suspect that yes you technically would be able to roll four thousand dollars in negative equity into a lease of one if you really wanted to. Having said that, you would be better off waiting until you are less upside down on your current vehicle to get something new.

    Hey Car Man,

    Can you tell me what the 24, 36 and 39 month lease support is for the Lacrosse currently? Any other offers?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,518
    Sure, dj_lbc, here you go. Ally's May base lease rate and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 Buick Lacrosse Convenience with 15,000 miles per year are 1.0% and 48%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are 1.0% and 41%.

    This car's 39-month numbers are 1.0% and 39%.

    General Motors is providing a $3,050 cash incentive on 24-month and $5,250 on 36- to 39-month leases of this car through Ally.

    Hey Car_man,

    Can you give me the lease numbers on a Lacrosse Premium 1 for 12k/year @ 24 and 36 term lengths?

    Also what are Buicks lease inception & termination fees if there are any?

    Thanks

    I read online crazy things that to buy out the car at end of lease it would be 2500 more than the residual value, so basically a 2500 dollar fee. Is this true that the purchase option is that inflated with Ally.
  • Car_Man,

    Can you please provide the Ally 36 month lease rates and residuals for a 2012 Lacrosse Leather at 10 and 12 K per year?

    Thanks!

    Hello. I am interested in the Buick Lacrosse AWD.

    Does May lease of 2 years at $399 with 0 out of pocket apply to just the hybrid, or to all versions?

    Obviously the monthly cost would be higher.

    Hey jbofctu. Ally's May base lease rate and residual value for a 24-month lease of a 2012 Buick Lacrosse Premium 1 with 12,000 miles per year are 1.0% and 49%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36-month lease are 1.0% and 43%.

    General Motors is currently providing a $3,050 cash incentive on 24-month and $5,250 on 36-month leases of this car through Ally.

    I believe that Ally charges a $795 acquisition fee on GM vehicles at lease signing.

    Shockingly, jbofctu, what you have heard is actually true. For some reason Ally has been charging consumers who want to buy their vehicles at lease-end a penalty. Most banks don't want vehicles back at lease-end, particularly banks with high residual values...so this seems sort of strange to me. Strange but true.

    just got back from looking for steals....negotiated a demo for $180 p/m 3k down for 24 months with 10k per year. Anyone think I did a decent job. It was only a few dollars more than the Regal price I negotiated.

    Not particularly since you are paying the equivalent of $305 a month for a used car with an annual mileage allowance of only 10K miles.

    Lacrosse E Assist Premium 1 w/ spoiler
    Experience Buick 2 year lease with xm, maintenance, etc...
    10k per year

    MSRP $34,675
    Selling price: $33,306
    Cap Cost (incl doc fee and acqu fee): $34,100
    Dealer Contributed Cap Cost Reduction: $4,828
    My total cash out of pocket at delivery: $1,300
    Residual Value: $20,595
    Base payment: $328.17
    with MA Sales tax: $348.68

    Purchase Option price at Lease End: $20,595.
    Dealer stated Ally leases have standard $2,500 add-on fee to the residual value for the "reasonable price to charge a retail customer". He stated the Experience Buick leases don't carry such a fee, and overrode the field in my lease agreement to equal the residual value.

    Hi Carman. I have this deal can you tell me if it has been calculated correct and if I could get a better deal? Thanks.

    2012 buick lacrosse w/touring package,sunroof, spoiler

    MSRP: 41650

    Price negotiated: 36995

    total out of pocket (inc t,t&T) - 1500

    10k miles/yr

    payment - 469/mth for 39 mths

    said residual is 52%
    money rate is 1.40

    said ally lease giving rebate of 3250 and I have the GM supplier discount. Should i keep negotiating, wanted payment in the 300s is that possible?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,518
    Sure oscar31. The car that you're interested in has a spread of around $1,675 between its full MSRP and dealer invoice price. Add to that the $3,250 cash incentive that General Motors is currently providing on 39-month leases of this car through Ally and you have a total of around $4,925 to play with during your negotiations. It looks to me as though the car's selling price is a couple hundred dollars over invoice minus incentives, which is a good deal.

    The lease rate that you were quoted is right in line with Ally's base rate for this term and model as well.

    If you like the car, I personally don't see any reason not to go for it.

  • Hi Carman,

    Could you tell me the lease info (residual, rate, incentive, etc) on a 2012 Lacrosse for 24mo & 36/39 @ 12K/yr. Most likely a Premium 1 or 2. Does the trim level have any factor in the rates/residual? Does 15K/yr change the numbers by much?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,518
    Certainly jescobar17. Ally's August base lease rate and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 LaCrosse Premium 1 or Premium 2 with 12,000 miles per year are 1.40% and 55%, respectively.

    The lease rate for a 39-month lease would be the same, but the residual value would be 53%.

    The residual values for a lease with 15,000 miles per year would be 2% lower.

    When negotiating your deal on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $3,250 cash incentive that is currently available on 36 to 39 month leases of it through Ally.

  • I am in Rochester, NY. I have a lease quote for a Lacrosse '12 Touring with a moonroof, extra mats, pretty much everything the car offers. It is a dealer model with 4K miles. I have been able to negotiate around $392 lease payment with $2500 for trade-in, all discounts applied, inclusive of all tax, title etc., so no additional cash, 0.56 residual. Is there something I am missing or does this sound about right? Thanks.
  • CarMan,

    Hope all is well. Please provide the requested info at your earliest convenience. I am interested in 2012 Lacrosse.

    Regards,
