Some TTAC readers complained that they never had the chance to cash in on the great $199 Volt lease deals.  We apologize.

To prevent this from recurring, TTAC will keep at least one eye on sub $200 leases.

In fact, Kelley Blue Book put for us together a list of great lease deals, some for as little as $159 a month.

Says said Alec Gutierrez, senior market analyst at Kelley Blue Book:

“Those who need new wheels, but are holding tight to their purse strings, will find some incredible lease options this month due to unusual but favorable new-car market conditions. New-car shoppers more interested in low monthly payments in the short term, rather than long-term vehicle ownership, should act quickly on these great deals, as we expect conditions to change and deals to expire in the next 30-60 days.”

    Thinking that picture is not the 200 per month Focus. Prices and options may vary…See your dealer for details.

      Slight fails on the other pictures, as well. The lease is for an Accent GLS sedan, an Accent SE hatch is shown. The lease is for a Versa S hatch (old body style), the newer sedan in SL trim is shown. As noted, the Focus shown is the Focus ST hatch, not an SE sedan. I can’t tell anything from the Impreza picture, other than that it’s an Impreza in the far-off distance. At least the Elantra is semi-right, being the correct body style, although judging by the wheelcovers, that’s a Korean-market Avante. That wheelcover design is not available in the US.

      I know I’m nit picking, and perhaps it has to do with copyright infringement if TTAC doesn’t use their own pictures (some of these are, some aren’t, and it’s never seemed to be a problem before), but these skipped details are the kinds of things I expect from Forbes or Yahoo! News, not TTAC.

      The devil is in the details…

      To be fair, options packages don’t typically affect the monthly payments of a lease by much. I recently optioned out a Buick LaCrosse – perhaps the only vehicle (in my price range, anyway) that I would comfortably fit into as a 6’5 man with a knee problem that isn’t a crossover. The difference in price between the base model plus “Convenience Package” and Buick’s “Leather Package” (MSRP I want to say $32,500) and the Premium Plus 2 trim (second from the top-end trim, MSRP $36,500 maybe $37k) was $30/month on a lease, even with a $4,000+ difference in the overall price of the vehicle.

        Be that as it may, in this case choosing an image of the top-end, hotted-up focus that costs $25k+ for an article about a 17k Focus that can be had at a great lease rate is either a little disingenuous, or shows a lack of attention to detail.

        Mostly bitter because I want one, and cannot have it at this price.

        tuffjuff

        You and me both. The total loan of my Focus SEL hatch after tax, title, license, an extended warranty (bad idea, as it turns out) and putting basically zero down comes out to maybe $24,500? My loan payments are $460/month.

        Had I known the Focus would be getting the boot, I’d have gone for a lease… or just bought a larger vehicle to begin with, so I would’ve be gunning to trade this in for one so soon. ;)

    Bertel, with all due respect, is it accurate to cite monthly lease payments when they fail to account for the amortization of the downpayment over the lease term? This advertising trick of using a low monthly payment merely obscures the actual total monthly cost. In the examples used here, all cars carry total monthly payments well over $200. Perhaps TTAC should fold costs together when reporting on the real cost of leasing. Of course, as a customer service, you’d want to change the title of this article too.

      That seems sort of nit-picky. The downpayments are listed right in the table.

      OTOH, I’d like to see the mileage allowance. Of course, if the deal appeals to me, I can call Hyundai or whomever and check.

      • 0 avatar
        WRohrl

        You can lease any car in the world for under $200/month if you put enough down at the start. It’s vital to amortize the down into the monthlies to figure out the true cost. You’re right at least it’s listed, but this is America! It needs to be figured out for the masses. :-)

        And you are 100% correct that the mileage limits are critical as well.

      laphoneuser

      I agree with Mr. Waingrow. Even though the down payments are listed, maybe another column could be added that lists the total monthly price, down payment included?

      Otherwise, great service. Thanks for posting it.

      Common guys, is it that hard to do the math yourself? Bertel did at least make all of that information available.

      I’m also more interested in the mileage allowance. I’m guessing many of these cheap leases are in the 10-12k miles range. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the last time I had a commute that would put me in that range.

    VW dealers are offering some amazing zero-down lease deals out there right now. Here are a couple of examples from a New England VW dealer:

    2013 Passat S (MSRP $21,640) for $168/mo, $0 down, $0 sec dep, 36 months, 10K miles per year, $200 doc fee and $625 bank fee due at delivery, total payments $6048, lease end purchase option $12,557.

    2013 Jetta (MSRP $16,340) for $138/mo, $0 down, $0 sec dep, 36 months, 10K miles per year, $200 doc fee and $625 bank fee due at delivery, total payments $4968, lease end purchase option $9477.

    For most people, the Passat is probably the better value of those two; the Jetta is truly a base model penalty box.

      At the VW dealers in the metro Detroit area (three that are all owned by the same family), they are leasing the Passat SE (MSRP just under 26k) for $219 a month. The ads say $1,999 is due at lease signing, but I know for a fact the dealers will waive this since I test drove one and was “sold hard” on it even though I decided to keep my current car for quite a bit longer (I found the B7 Passat to have excessive levels of road noise and some quirky suspension behavior, as well, plus I have a less than glowing opinion of VW reliabilty/customer service).

      10K per year? Is this a grandma lease? How many people actually drive 10K/year unless they live in a major city? I’ve had my Subaru for 9 months and it already has almost 15K on it.

      Not to mention that driving a VW is a penalty all by itself.

        Driving tastes/habits change.

        I’m looking at buying a house in the next 6-12 months. I’ll happily scale back (and have!) my usual 25k/year driving down to the 15k/year range to save on gas (and the resale value of my disposable, going-to-be-traded-soon car) to help pay for it.

        Much of the population does live in major metro areas and do not take long distance driving vacations. This has been the shift over decades. When I lived near Los Angeles I typically drove less than 12K miles a year, and that included a lot of weekend trips out of town. 10k is not totally unreasonable for a commuter car. The important point is for the customer to match the vehicle/finance/lease to one’s situation.

        chuckrs

        For many people in southern New England, where Balise is, 10K miles per year is reasonable. There are no wide-open spaces here. I’m in commuting-phobic RI and my weekly commute is less than 125 miles. That commute is considered by many RI’ers to be rather longish.

        mnm4ever

        And honestly, it is usually less than $20/mo to increase the mileage from 10k to 12k or even 15k. I live in the burbs, and even when I commuted every day I didnt top 15k a year with road trips and everything else. No with telecommuting and multiple cars I am easily under 10k a yr. If you drive more than 15k a year then you are not a good lease customer.

        My current favorite is the Kia dealer in Cape Girardeau, MO, advertising $0 down/$199/mo leases on 2012 Rio, Forte, Soul AND Optima. That’s one heck of an MSRP spread.

        The kicker is that their current ads say they’ll pay you “100% of original new MSRP for the base model” on your trade-in.

        There’s an encylopedia’s worth of fine print at the bottom which flashes across the screen in about 6 seconds and is too fine for the pixels on my HDTV to pick up, so that if I pause it, I still can’t read it. Do they really think many people are going to believe they’ll give out $25k for a trade-in ’94 ES300 with 250k miles and no paint left? Especially when you’re supposedly trading it on a Rio that’s worth $13k? I can’t even fathom the asterisks involved in this…

        My bad, it’s Ward Kia in Carbondale, IL (I’m in the TV market for both Cape and Carbondale, but live over an hour from both… It’s hard to keep them straight). Apologies to Auffenberg Kia in Cape.

        They have no mention of this on their website (the only “specials” being $2000 cash back on certain Chrysler 200 trims – they sell Kia, Dodge, Ram and Chrysler, and have the $0 down/$199/mo deal on 200 and Avenger, as well), so I can’t actually find out about it without calling. Those infernal commercials have run once or twice per commercial break on almost every channel in the market for the past 20 days or so. I just saw it again, at least ten times, in the two hours I watched TV last night.

    Total monthly cost to lease is the monthly payment X number of months plus any upfront $$ plus tax and any other fees on the front or back end. Not to mention dings ‘n’ dents (Honda alone forgives the first $1500). Divide the total by the months and if you come in under $300/mo you’re doing OK these days. Oh, and any lease under 12K/yr will probably cost you some extra $$@ .15 or.20 per. Not necessarily a bad deal; just that the ads mislead.

      Most manufacturers allow some dings/dents/scratches as part of ‘normal wear’ that isn’t charged at lease end.

        You will claim I am biased against Ford (or maybe not), but Ford dealers in the metro Detroit area are far and away the biggest offenders of advertising prices (lease or purchase) that are provisionally conditioned, in extremely small font print (or not at all), on being A/X/Z plan + customer loyalty + conquest rebate + military service + recent college graduate + born on one of three dates in history + having teal eye color + freckles + possessing a rare, genetic mutation + being able to recite the Magna Carta word-for-word from memory.

        Point taken, nullo. I meant damage beyond those accepted, but below serious body work. And, say, 6000 extra miles @ .20 per is only $1200 or about another $34/mo on a 3yr lease.

        @DeadWeight

        A dealership just south of Green Bay has ads on ALL THE TIME for “$99 a month!” It’s a Kia dealership.

        I saw an ad for them a few years back in some mail advert. It had a cheap-ish ($10-11k, IIRC) Rio, stock number and all, as an example of the $99/month deal. The down payment on that sucker? $5,000. Call me crazy, but if you have $5,000 saved up to put down, you can probably afford more than $99/month, unlike all the other people who perhaps just don’t have money, for whom those commercials are clearly targeted.

        It’s almost like they stocked that ONE car so they could legally put down that you could get a car for $99/month.

        “Most manufacturers allow some dings/dents/scratches as part of ‘normal wear’ that isn’t charged at lease end.”

        GMAC was a real bitch about this, I ended up having the rear bumper repainted along with a mirror I replaced (although in fairness it was slightly cracked, a 39.99 GM special (which they were going to charge $200 to do) from the parts dept wouldn’t have killed them, I bought mine out of a yard for $25)

    True low cost leasing: My wife leases cars. (I know, I know…but she insists.) Anyway, coupla months back we went to the local Honda dealer and picked out a 2012 Accord LX 4 cyl….hey, it’s got everything she needs. $0 down. $219 per month, 12k per year. Free oil changes for the life of the lease. Since practically everything on the car is covered by warranty to 36k miles, repair cost should be $0. So, $229 per month with taxes. Boom. Done.

    With the new 2013′s coming out, any remaining 2012′s they pretty much will be dealing like this on.

    So, my capital cost per mile is a paltry $0.23 per mile, in a nice, safe, comfortable, efficient if slightly boring automotive appliance.

    That’s a deal which is hard to beat. YMMV.

      You should’ve bargained harder. I leased my 2010 Accord LX – back when they weren’t giving them away – for $159/month, $0 down payment. I did have to pay the acquisition fee ($595), doc fee ($239) registration ($125), but otherwise no down payment and no security deposit. I didn’t get free oil changes, but I do my own anyway.

      Despite what the boobirds say, the Accord is a nice drive.

      • 0 avatar
        tuffjuff

        The Accord is nice, I would image. To be fair, in the year 2012 I expect ALL BRAND NEW cars are “nice” – it would be silly to think otherwise. Even the 2010 Kia Forte EX I bought and subsequently sold a little over a year later because it was a lemon was a nice car. Broken, but nice.

        The problem many have with the Accord, and the Camry while we’re at it, is that it’s over-rated.

        Just to be clear with you on the matter.

      • 0 avatar
        PartsUnknown

        To be clear with you, many people who crack themselves up with their personal variation of “Alticamcordonata” (tee hee) have never driven the cars in question. They just like parroting what they read on the intertubes. I disagree that the Accord is overrated. It is not a Bentley, or a Mercedes or powered by unicorn farts.

        However, within its segment, my opinion has always been that the Accord deserves the high regard in which it is held. And for no other reason than Honda has always imbued it with more than a little driving character – accurate steering, revvy engine, nimble handling – something not required in the family sedan arena. Never mind the high marks for quality and reliability.

        I don’t own the Accord anymore. Out of 20+ cars owned, it has been my only Honda, so I am not a fanboy. But owning one for two years opened my eyes to what makes the Accord special.

    None of these are “deals” are less than $200 a month. Take the down payment, divide by the number of months in the lease term, and add it back to the monthly payment.

      tuffjuff

      If given the option, and assuming I drove a tad less than I do (I intend to adapt my driving habits to suit) I’d rather put $2,000 down and have a car payment that’s half what I pay now. A $200/month payment, or less than 10% of my take-home, is prefferable to a $460/month payment.

  • avatar
    el scotto

    I think there are a lot of sub prime customers who don’t have a couple of grand laying around for a down payment. They’ll go into a dealer hoping for a $199 lease on a new car and leave with a five year old car and $199 a moth payments for 60 months. The cycle of bad decisions just starts again. Mo offense meant to those who have the down payment cash and are clever with their leases.

      They also left the Fiat off the list, its been at $199 (or less) per month for a while with a pretty low down payment. The Smart is perpetually on cheap lease, I think even the convertible is at $199 too. Ive considered a base Smart for $99 a month recently for driving to client sites, I never take anyone in my car anyway and I would most likely save $99 a month in gas alone.

        This is interesting…The Land Cruiser generally drinks around 300 bucks a month in gas. This could save some cash, but there is insurance and all that so I don’t know how well I’d do. I guess leasing a Leaf would be the optimal solution since I live on post and Electricity is included in the rent. However, I might as well just get a Schwinn for the distance I commute.

    Nissan always seems to have some cheap lease on the Altima. I’m sure there are plenty of ’12′s out there for 199/mo 36 mo 12k a year with 3k down. Not the ’13, yet.

    As odd as it is today, the car section of the local paper can provide deals on wheels. My Altima lease was a local sign and drive deal from a mega dealer for 199/mo because the car was a leftover ’10 bought in March of 2011. $220/month after all said and done here in PA. I could have any model under the terms, as long as it was a 2.5 S that was white with a beige interior ( they had 20 of them, must have been a fleet deal gone bad or something). Needed a car and wasn’t finding anything I wanted long term, so it worked out.

    With VW or any German iron, a cheap lease is only the way to go. Once the warrany is over, expensive repairs under the cover name of “maintenance” kill the TCO.

      I wish I had known this before buying my last six German cars, all sold in good condition at 5-8 years of age, without expensive repairs. I missed my chance to kill the TCO, apparently!

    • 0 avatar

      Depends on what you expect. I’ve done some work on my german cars, all of which was wear and tear stuff…tires, shocks, brakes. I can’t say that my German cars are worse than my japanese cars….

      I guess when the German car breaks, it’s a POS, and when a Japanese car breaks, it’s OK as it’s a Honda….

      Dealer issues are way different, but as I mostly avoid dealers, it’s not relevant. My Acura with crappy dealer has caused me way more indigestion than my BMW with a good dealer.

      Felix Hoenikker

      I should have been clearer in my expectations of long term reliability. I have a very simple rule of thumb for a car that I purchase new. Simply stated, the total cost of non warranty repairs over the first 100k mile should not exceed $100 (excluding normal wear items such as tires, brakes, fluid changes). Inexplicably, only GM has managed to pass this test. Honda was the most miserable failure. From what I have read, you have a greater change of getting hit with a meteor than an VW/Audi or BMW product has of passing this test.
      I have owned two used Mercedes that came with deferred maintenance and high miles. From the records that came with them, they did not pass the test either.

        th009

        $100/100,000 miles is an extraordinarily stringent threshold — that’s only $0.001/mile for repairs. Off hand, I’d say that the repair costs on my six German cars above were all below $0.02 or maybe $0.03/mile. If I recall correctly, all were sold with between 100K and 150K km (not miles) on the clock. For me, that’s very much a reasonable cost, and not “killing the TCO”. But of course we can all set our own personal standards.

        $100? That’s barely getting it up on the lift with today’s dollar. I’m happy to, and expect to, pay 10% of the sticker price of the car in the first 100K miles out of warranty.

        I’m unhappy to need unscheduled service more than once a year or so. I’m extremely unhappy to be stranded, ever.

      • 0 avatar
        th009

        I’ve been stranded twice in the last twenty years: once for running out of fuel (fuel gauge was reading too high) and once for failed coil packs. Both times all costs were covered by the manufacturer. Probably no more than one extra service visit per year otherwise. I can’t remember having to leave my car at the dealer overnight during those 20 years, either.

        I can easily live with that record, especially when it’s combined with plenty of driving enjoyment.

      • 0 avatar
        Felix Hoenikker

        th009,
        $100/100k is not very stringent from a time between failure view. Assuming you average 40 mph combined city and highway yields 2500 hours of operation over 100k miles. Industrial component reliability usually exceeds 10,000 hrs between failures. I cut that by a factor of four for automobiles parts. Another way of expressing my target reliability is that no components fail before 2500 hours. The $100 is just there for slack to cover an underdesigned part that could prematurely fail.

        The out-of-warranty BMW I bought left me stranded several times due to fuel pump and cooling system issues. A/C and power window switches (non stranding) were also points of failure. Not only staying away from the dealer, but even doing all your own work, parts cost greatly exceeded $100.

        Im afraid my experience also favors GM. The 1993 Chevy pickup went 100,000 miles without a single out-of-warranty failure. Ford’s never gave me that kind of service. The jury is out on the Tundra, but at 53,000 nothing has failed out-of-warranty and it has never left me stranded.

  • avatar

    Sadly, in NY that won’t help. Sales Tax is added to the lease payments so it’s usually approx $75- $150 more than the “price” as advertised.

    NY also gets sales tax if you buy the car at the end of the lease. This is why people move to other states…..

    MeaCulpa

    Wouldn’t it be a good idea to do an apples to apples comparison between lease deals? Whatever the average american drives in miles per year +10% (to avoid gauging on additional miles), with all charges and costs factored in as well as service and fuel (say 50/50 urban/highway).
    All deals seems structured in different ways, probably to avoid real cross shopping, so that would be a real consumer/reader service.

    My Grandpa briefly considered leasing a Town Car. I sat down with him and explained all the numbers. Grandpa “you mean you make payments and give it back?” Me “Yes, let me go over the numbers again”. He gave me the “woefully ignorant grandchild” look. He wrote a check for granny’s new Town Car.

      krhodes1

      At todays interest rates, that would be silly. I got .9% for 5 years on my BMW with a moderate down payment. Sure, I COULD have written a check for the whole thing, but I am making a lot more than 1% in the market. The only reason I put anything down was to avoid being “upside down” on the note. Probably shouldn’t have bothered, between the discount and the lower price for a Euro Delivery car I am well above water even without it.

      I considered leasing, but I am a 15K a year driver, and last year the good lease deals from BMW were not a great fit for me. I have no qualms about repair costs, they may not be cheap to fix, but they are cheaper to fix than to buy new. Plus I specc’d the car in a long-term ownership friendly configuration.

      I AM very tempted to do a cheap lease on a FIAT 500 just because I kind of want one. Would be a fun toy to replace my Alfa Spider next year. Keep it for a couple years then get something else for a toy. I’m just too busy with work to do as much wrenching for fun as I have in the past.

        Clarification, that was about 20 years ago when the FLM dealers was really pushing red carpet leases. He’s never had a car or house payment; built his own house, writes checks for cars. He likes the S class but it’s a 2 hour drive to an expensive Euro/Japanese dealer. A statistical anomaly but a factor in car buying.

        th009

        I had a 2.9% lease/finance option on my current car. I didn’t take it; in my view, the probability of making 2.9% AFTER TAX on reasonably low-risk investments was not high enough. So I paid for the car before I drove it off the lot.

        And, yes, I expect to keep this piece of German engineering for 10+ years.

    There are a TON of deals out there. And if we’re going to play fast and loose with unicorn offerings for the Volt, there are select dealers offering $99 a month leases on the Nissan Leaf.

    Nissan of Bellevue will gladly sign you up for a $99 lease (a wheelbarrow of money not required). Selection? Oh they only have 67 to choose from.

    US News and World Report already tracks the best lease deals each month – appears to be in cooperation with Edmunds.

    If you’re putting down 2000 bucks on a car, than it’s not really a “200 Dollar” lease..is it?

    I’m so happy I’m not divorced and paying child support and make enough money that I can avoid these “penalty cars”. A friend is currently, um, er, uhh, “enjoying” his Focus lease. He hates the damn thing (No problems, he just doesn’t like it), and can hardly wait until it’s gone, 1 month after his child support payments are over (Ex makes BIG money, so the kids will have no college worries), and he can move back up to something he actually might like. I would bet F150, if I could bet on what he ends up with.

      If the ex is making big money then why are there child support payments… I thought the purpose was “I, the ex, cannot afford the kids on my own so you contribute”

    Over the summer here in NYC, there were some pretty good deals on leases for the popular midsize sedans. Altima for $139, Accord for $169, Sonata for $179, all with zero down. Plaza Auto Leasing, Wheels to Lease, Diamond Leasing…the list goes on. Even those without top tier credit could get those payments or within $10/month.

    Then there was the $249 special (zero down) on the fully loaded G37 – including navi. All of a sudden a lot of those started showing up in my neighborhood…
