October 2008 Lease Rate for 08 VW Jetta & Passat

My Take: Of the remaining 09 Jetta and Passats, the Wolfsburg edition seems to stand out. The residual value is still pretty high and the money factor is lower than most. This makes for a nice combination for leasing. If you are in the market for a Jetta and don’t mind driving a manual transmission, the Wolfsburg may be for you. There is also special financing available in the form of 0% for up to 36 months, 1.9% for 48 and 2.9% for 60. I would go with the lease in this particular case since the money factor breaks down to about 2.568% APR.
