Name: Mrs G
What He’s Got: Black 2010 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg
What It Cost: $0 drive-off, $358 a month with 9.75% CA sales tax. We came about $40 over the best TrueCar price, which was around $200 under invoice. Here was the lease rate for that month:
2010 Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg
36-month | 15k miles | residual 55% | .00089 base money factor
We went with 12k miles per year, so the residual jumped to 57%.
I couldn’t find the contract so I don’t have the exact numbers. Will update this post if I come across it.
My Take: Overall, I thought it was a fair deal. Originally dealt with another dealer, but they kind of dropped the ball for being impatient so I went with someone else. It was a good call since the process was painless. It took longer to find parking than it did to sign all the papers. The finance guy did try to pull a few fast ones, but the wife stuck to her guns and she came away exactly as she expected. No complaints.
