ttac customer service five lease deals under 200

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.”

    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...

  • El scotto Subway or non-subway city? There is a difference.
  • MaintenanceCosts Most of our drivers actually aren't that bad, except that they're a little slow-witted. But there is a group that, post-pandemic, has decided they've had it with the rules, and they're scary.Recently I've seen a regular drumbeat of people blowing through red lights and stop signs without a care in the world; several drivers drive the wrong way (despite honking and yelling) down one-way streets; one driver driving on the wrong side of the street past a line of cars waiting for a red light, forcing an innocent oncoming driver to take evasive action; and one pickup driver deliberately ramming all the planters (used to separate a bike lane) he could see.And no one can park. There's always someone parked blocking the crosswalk, blocking the fire hydrant, blocking the bike lane, blocking the bus stop, you name it.But mostly it's OK.
  • ChristianWimmer Sunak has apparently done this because his political party has lost so much support. Once the brainless masses flock to his political party again the trap will spring shut and bam - the ICE ban will be attempted to get pushed through even quicker.Honestly, Europe right now is a complete CR** HOLE thanks to the EU.Did anyone hear of the EU’s plans to make driving even more unattractive? A French Green Party politician introduced some really perverted ideas under the guise of “Vision Zero” (Zero deaths from driving in the EU) and of course the climate hysteria…1) If you just received your driver’s license you can not drive faster than 90 km/h - basically you’re stuck behind trucks on highways or can’t even overtake them on normal roads.2) If you are 60 years old, your license is only valid for 7 more years. If you are 70 years old, 5 years. If you’re 80 years old, 2 years. You are required to “renew” your license (and pay for it yourself) which will also determine if you are still fit to drive.3) The standard B driver’s license here allows you to drive vehicles up to 3.5 tons in weight. Under this idiotic proposal from that French nutjob, those 3.5 tons will decrease to 1.8 tons meaning that you can’t legally even drive a Tesla Model 3…
  • ToolGuy I blame Canada.
  • Syke This is one of those days when you come up with an article that I just live to comment on. I'm retired from (but still working at three half days a week - retirement was boring) Richmond Honda House, a Honda/Yamaha/Can-Am/Sea Doo dealership. No, I'm not a mechanic. I'm the guy who handles all the recall/warranty claims. Which between the three major brands, and a couple of small Asian brands is enough to keep me busy for about fourteen business hours split across Tuesday thru Thursday. Yes, the Spyders are reliable, but when they do break down they can be a nightmare due to you have to have a laptop plugged into one to do most kinds of service. First hint: You absolutely do not want to do massive aftermarket sound system upgrades to a Spyder. We've had nightmares with them in the past. I swear half our original customers back in the 2008-2010 period bought theirs to turn into a three-wheeled boom box, which would invariably cause voltage fluctuations in the electrical system, thus driving the various black boxes wonky and causing all sorts of problems.Those of you who decry computerization in modern automobiles will find that the Spyder is even more so. I've noticed that the Spyder has gotten a lot better since Bombardier dropped the original V-twin engine (same one that Aprilia used on their 1000's when they first came into the country) in favor of the current triple. Mechanical repairs to the drivetrain have definitely gone down.Used? The more recent models seem to have good reliability. No, not as good as the current Gold Wing, or any generation Gold Wing for that matter, but definitely within acceptable parameters. The older ones, especially the original 2008-2010 models, I'd recommend staying away from. How bad? During the 2008 recession, when motorcycle dealers were desperately hanging on, my office at Honda House was the single best cash flow for the company, totally because of warranty claims and recalls from the original models. Yes, Bombardier has gotten an awful lot better.Oh yeah, the company itself it decent to deal with on a business and support level. From my office, they're my favorite of the three, slightly ahead of Yamaha, and a night and day improvement over Honda. All you have to remember is that you're not dealing with Canadians, you're dealing with Quebecois. Yes, there's a difference, I was married to one for thirteen years.
