    Hope you're right kyfdx, but I've found if my area has a super dealership combo it is usually more expensive than shopping areas with more separately owned dealerships. Of course, that's just one person's experience.
    Well.. I said you could argue that point. Didn't say I was right... ;)

    @lukeryan Funny how they name the document, Customer Disclosure, but don't really disclose much.

    No, they don't give a selling price or CAP cost.

    .00032 MF and 53% residual.

    Can't really tell you specifics, but $1473/mo upfront and $309/mo. looks like a pretty low payment for a $43K MSRP vehicle.

    No need to pay the acquisition fee upfront. You can roll that into the payment. That would knock your upfront down to about $700, and add $20/mo. to the payment.

    Wait, you're thanking him for that?! :p


    Ha. Very funny.
    It all comes down what are you doing with the car.
    Yeah I got tired of the juvenile racket and the sloppy shifter of my Vibes, but if you drive short distances.. or you don't care too much... or "my other car is a bicycle" -- then these are fine cars.

    Not to put too fine a point on it -- I just rode my bike home from work. 2.5 miles on a light coating of ice and snow.. with studded tires.. in 17 degree weather. Builds character, and I don't exercise in any other way. It kind of puts things in perspective, though.

    If I had a 100-mile roundtrip commute like some of my colleagues, I'd pick my cars with much greater care. Horses for courses, and all that.

    Cheers -m
    I almost died, just spending 5 minutes pumping gas, yesterday.. in 11 degree windchill.

    Ride a bike in this weather.. :o

    datsuns were all RWD up until about 1977 when the 310 came out, then was a mix for a bit. Some RWD some FWD on the small cars like the 210.
    Yeah... the B210 was still RWD, too..

    Well as you know I am no big fan of BMW reliability history but I always thought their engines were pretty sweet regardless. I guess I'm just a sucker for the 'ol straight 6 of bygone years. It's my favorite config.
    Whaddaya mean, "bygone". Straight six in all three BMWs at my house. ;)
