Why don't you SmartBuy it. SmartBuys are usually cheaper than leases (at least NY SmartBuys are) and I don't know of any fee for doing it.Darrin said:Thanks for the info. From what I have been ablet o find, it does look like GM requires the $595 fee, which is outrageous. It also looks like some other leasing companies actually charge more!
I'm not really upset with my deal as the total deal actually ended up costing less than I had originally figured. For some reason, the posted GMS price (employee purchase price) was $30,099 but the dealer used the purchase price of $29,599 and then subtracted the rebates, so it pretty much all worked out. It was just frustrating because the numbers just seemed to keep changing. The finance guy did try to put a $360 ETCH fee into the deal, but it was removed after I caught the add-on.
I just bought the car last night, so I really haven't had much time with it yet. Looking forward to today!
