November is one of the best times to lease a new car, but probably not for the reasons you think. I’m certainly not going to make the claim that the deals out there are necessarily any better this time of year, but there are great reasons to be looking at a new, reliable vehicle in the late weeks of fall. For one thing, you might be planning to take a trip outside of the state. New cars practically guarantee a safe and maintenance-free trip. The other realization during this time of year is that the weather is likely to get dicey with ice, snow and sleet no matter where you plan to travel. This is the time you need to make sure your car is equipped with good tires and plenty of traction to get you where you need to go. There is something about the fall that makes us all yearn for an SUV or other type of All Wheel Drive (AWD). Read the rest of this entry
We’ve seen some great car lease deals from Infiniti in the past few months, but these 27 month lease deals are difficult to judge fairly. In some states where registration fees are paid every 12 months, a 27 month lease is not a good idea. Still, based on LVR and value of car payment per MSRP, the Infiniti G37 Coupe comes on top. This month you can lease the Infiniti G37 Coupe for just $299 a month with $2,999 due at signing. If you’d rather have something more practical with a 36 month term, the Acura TSX is an excellent deal at just $269.00 a month and $1,999.00 down.

Does it seem a bit boring seeing the Cadillac CTS on top of the lease rankings every month? Dollar for dollar, the CTS has simply been tough to beat when it comes to getting good lease value. This month, Acura ties the Cadillac with the an excellent lease special on the 2013 TSX. Through September, you can lease an Acura TSX for just $269.00 a month with $1,999 due at lease signing. That would be around $325.00 if you prefer to not put any money down as a cap-cost reduction (always a better choice in my opinion). For the month of September, we continue to see up to 15 cars with Lease Value Ratios of 1.10% or better. Another great deal to look at is the Nissan Maxima which leases for $259.00 a month with $2999 down (Probably around $343.00 with no down-payment). The Maxima has a lease value ratio of just .97%. Here are 35 car lease deals for September 2013. Read the rest of this entry

Ask your car dealer, ‘when is the best time to lease a car‘, and you’ll only get one answer: now. Truthfully, now is the best time to lease a car, but it has little do with the fact we are into the late months of summer. The truth is that the best time for car leasing has little to do with seasons and more to do with the model year and age of the car you’re looking at acquiring. Car makers typically introduce newly designed models every 4 years. (It can also be two, six or eight years, but four is most common). Each year, most cars do get some minor tweaks and face lifts, but major changes such as body design, engine, transmission changes and significant feature improvements occur only once every 2 to 8 years. Obviously car enthusiasts are anxious to test drive these new and improved models when they first hit the lots, but they come with two major financing disadvantages:
