Car Buying Advice - Two basic questions on Leasing

Hi,

Two similar questions:

1) As Manufacturer's special lease deals seem to be good deals, if I modify one term, i.e. (cap cost reductions), am I still likely to get a good deal?

2) I assume that in the Manufacturer's special lease deals, they reduce the actual cost from MSRP. If I modify a "special deal", am I likely to get that reduced actual cost?

Thanks.

    1) The deals are just advertisements. In theory, modifying the amount down, etc, shouldn't affect the underlying assumptions.

    2) Yes, all advertised deals involve some level of dealer discounting. Many times, you can negotiate a bigger discount. What you have to watch for are additions that aren't included in the advertised deal.

    The dealer's offer may be a lot higher than the advertised deal. Don't assume you'll get that, right out of the box. Your goal is to do better than the advertisement.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!
