    If you lease a 2019, there are $12,475 of incentives.. Likely a total discount of $18000 or so..

    I think I'd do that, then buy it out, before taking a $21K discount on a unit that is two years older.

    At the auto mall while RDX gets serviced. Scoped out a new X3 in the showroom. Man that is nice. Afraid to drive one. I might not be able to go back down the spectrum.

    Now I just need a job that pays better so I can afford it! Nice chat with the sales guy who said the December holiday incentives are huge on some of the models. And he really was a fan of courtesy loaners!

    Little late in the season though to even think of pulling off a rash move. But I do need to get the wife out for a test drive. Who knows, she might not even like it!

    My brother's Fusion lease is up in early April and after the holidays he plans to start looking around to narrow down his choice. So far these are on the list:

    -Hyundai Elantra
    - Volkswagen Jetta
    - Mazda3
    - Subaru Impreza wagon

    He's currently in grad school and a grad assistant for the lacrosse team so he put the Subaru on there since he's often responsible for carting around equipment. Any others to throw on there? For those here who have had Elantras the feedback seems to be they are reliable and solid. No decision on whether it will be a lease or buy this time around.

    I read a review on the Mazda CX-30 this morning and it seems like it might be an interesting alternative. Apparently based on the 3 and not the 2 like the CX-3, with more space inside. And unlike the current 3 hatch, this actually looks decent.

    We had an 08 Elantra and a 17. Both were flawless, solid little cars. They are about as inspiring as an insurance seminar but good transportation. They also have a lot of content for the money.

    Yeah it's hard to beat the value Hyundai offers for the $$$. I'm not familiar with the CX-30, is it replacing the CX-3?

    sooo... is that $12,475 incentives in NJ on a T6? Which trim? And what is the MF and residual for 12k (whatever number of months makes the most sense)? I don't think an S90 loaner would be common, but if you could find one and get 18.5% off plus incentives, that would get you down to about $35k. Assuming $58k MSRP and ... ? 48% RV? That's just $7k depreciation cost.

    There was time where the S90 was a screaming lease. I think it was this time last year or a little earlier

    I like the extra room it has, but I think the S60 is the better driver being a little lighter.

    Yup - I got about $20k off my 2019 V90 on lease.

    I do think about buying it out but then I figure there's no rush to do so. I'd mostly do it to lower the interest rate - the MF on the lease equates to about 1.5-2% higher than a good car loan rate.

    Without having driven the current S60, I would tend to agree that it's the better driver. As I've said, the V90 is a beautifully smooth cruiser, but it's no sport wagon.

    I was next to a white S60 on the highway yesterday and admired the styling. The proportions are really nice.

    For me who prefers a softer ride the S60 is a nice balance. It’s just firm enough and handles well. It’s no 3 series but I’ve pushed it pretty hard and it can be fun. Fast enough for me in a straight line too.

    Bonus points for me is that the wife loves it too.... so when she sees the payment come out every month I don’t get any crap!

    wow, that is silly. I can't believe they are squeezing one in between the cx3 and cx5. Was anyone really saying "gee, ya know, the CX3 is too tiny and the CX5 too huge."

    I'd take a Grand Cherokee, Compass, Wrangler Unlimited, Gladiator, or maybe some others ... but it is already near end of month, so how are they going to intro new incentives and roll out the marketing before EOY?

    I'm holding my breath for a sub-$200/mo Compass deal with $0 DAS.

    Thanks for that..looks good and I much prefer it to the 3 hatch. The engine choice is a bit of a letdown however. I would probably exclude it for that reason alone but since it's not for me I think it's worth a look.

    You're probably right on that though I've seen some decent Hyundai deals from time to time on LH.

    Same as the one that was linked.. T6 Momentum

    The actual lease deal isn't very good, even with the giant incentive. I was looking at it as a purchase alternative to the 2017 with the $21K off MSRP. Lease it, then turn around and buy it out. It is a terrible lease, though.

    I’m sure it’s different now but my ‘17 Elantra was $210 month / $250 OOP at signing 36/10 with an MSRP right around $21k. NJ 6.625% rolled in.

    I'd go for the CX-3 or the new one to be honest but, not wanting one right now. The Hyundai/Kia cousins and the new Golf are the ones I really want to see. Was hoping Honda would fix the HR-V with a stronger engine and knobs for their infotainment center but no one has any idea about the 2020 model. Shame, as I do like it, the EX-L model, but it really needs the 1.5 turbo from the Civic. So we'll see, come August or September, I'll start looking.

    To get a CX5 that’s both powerful enough and nice inside you are getting quite pricey. With that level of equipment they are quite nice, but around here at least, you’d see yourself coming and going all the time because most of the ones they sell are lower end trims.

    sandy, if you think the HRV is not powerful enough, I doubt you will like a Venue.

    ab, a lot of cars are like that. The range goes from low 20s base model, to 40K loaded up one, but other than wheel design, externally they look pretty much the same.

    Leaving in the morning for Orlando and just got back from the gas station. Paid $2.17 and only used $5.00 this whole week, basically Monday till today. Besides going to and from work 4 times, did a bunch of errands and the needle finally moved on the way home earlier. This new job being so close, I could actually look at a lease next time if I really wanted to. I'm not even sure I'll hit 9K this year to be honest!

    at 7 years and 3 months old, the RDX just hit 58,000 miles. and we had 30K in the first 2.5 years. Really slowed down after that. I think we are doing about 8K/year now with the wife commuting. easy to keep a car a long time when you put that low miles on it

    had the daughter out to dinner with us (Italian tonight. good stuff!) after a couple glasses of wine, the wife was ready to go down to the BMW dealer to swap into a nice X3, after I told them how nice it was. The kid was more than happy to goad her along.

    more like that we just go to the Xfinity store and swap our cell phone plan over instead. though that will save us $90/month so can put that toward a car payment!

    I'm hoping the Venue or Soltis will be powerful enough for me. If not, the new Golf should do it and the small changes they're doing to it will make it seem new to me.
    The CX-5 I drove today had a Bose system in it and it was very nice sound. No XM hooked up so I used my iPhone and the music sounded nice & clear. The Kia Soltis is supposed to have a Bose system in the top model so would probably go with that one if I do buy one. Trust me, once I drive each on, I'll know very quickly if it's something I could live with for a long period. And that 5 year/60K warranty is a nice perk. I know V is lowering theirs for 2020 but should still be pretty good. As long as they put a decent sound system in the Golf, I'd be fine with it.

    Limiting dealer orders for December sounds pretty miserable if you were trying to special order a car. And it sounds like the “bank” vehicles may have unusual configurations.

    I figure at this point one of us has to die before I could get my wife out of this current house. My plans are just falling apart!

    Though last night I had her all revved up to go get that new car. But it could have been the wine talking. Of all things that might get her to sign on, she likes to talk to our daughter when they are both driving home from work, and at some point (I think an iPhone upgrade) the phone feature that let her redial a last call stopped working. Pretty much anything phone related did. She would be in heaven if she could just thumb a button on the steering wheel and tell the car to call the \kid!

    at 7 years and 3 months old, the RDX just hit 58,000 miles. and we had 30K in the first 2.5 years. Really slowed down after that. I think we are doing about 8K/year now with the wife commuting. easy to keep a car a long time when you put that low miles on it

    4 years and 10 months on the Outback and it just crossed 34,000 miles last week. Less than 600 miles a month on it. No plans to trade it out, though the Subaru dealer keeps sending us offers. Latest one is $521/mo for a 2020 Outback Limited XT, based on the trade in value of ours. Of course, they don't know ours is paid off.
    I can’t believe you’ve had that Outback 5 years already. I think we are closing in on 2 years with my wife’s 2017 Pilot.
    The killer part is that was two houses ago!
    Revolving debt. It is the new American Dream!

    In all seriousness, we'd love to move. There are 5 of us in a 3 bedroom house. My 10 year old son & 8 year old daughter share a bedroom. He likes to go to sleep by 9:00 pm. She's a night owl and will talk to him as long as he keeps talking back. The problem is that a 4 bedroom house in our neck of the woods would cost a lot more than I'm currently comfortable spending. I'm not at the point in my life where I want to start increasing my debt.

    I think I understand. Having a son that was recently Bar Mitzvahed, I guess your long range plan involves your daughters Bat Mitzvah and then her wedding. The last thing you need is a humongous mortgage on a four bedroom house. :'(

    Sounds about right. Don't forget about the my 10 year old son who will get bar Mitzvahed before my daughter (he's the goalie)

    So, it’s selling for $29K? Not $38K as the ad states?

    3 MYs old, but still a very nice car, if that’s the price.

    It is 21k off original MSRP, which is $59k.

    Sorry, I forgot about him. Have you given any thought to trading for a double-wide to get over the next 15 year hump? :o

    Bradd, have you considered expanding instead? Push a room out the back or off the end to get a master bedroom. Or of course, pop the top. At least you can get a good deal on the plumbing supplies! A lot cheaper (and in some ways easier) than moving, and in your area, probably will have a positive ROI adding a bedroom and bath to the place.

    At least the mini and the Subaru are paid off!

    And, we're doing this with just one salary. The business is doing well and we hope to put our daughter on an owners draw starting next month. Then, hopefully, the wife can start taking a draw soon.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!
