April 2014 Car Lease Ratings

Great Lease Values from Infiniti, Acura, Toyota and Chevrolet

This month it is no surprise to find Infiniti, Acura, Toyota and Chevrolet among the top five lease offers. The lease terms, however, might make you think twice about some of these offers. For instance, the Toyota RAV4 is a great deal, but is only for 24 months. If you live in a state that charges registration tax every month, you’ll be faced with a significant tax bill in another two years.  Infiniti is a fantastic luxury car and has consistently earned top-5 honors for lease value over the past several months. However, the 39 month lease term falls puts you in a peculiar position with your state and tax registration where you could end up paying a big tax bill between the 36th and 39th month when the lease is traded in. The Acura TL and Acura RLX are excellent lease values based on LVR and average monthly payment. But, one has to consider whether or not the MSRP of some of these luxury cars are worth what the price. If luxury is important, then yes, the RLX represents a great value. Just remember, luxury has a price that is not always measured by what is practical and functional.   Read the rest of this entry

Nissan Maxima March Car Lease DealCar lease deals have steadily improved since this blog began over 5 years ago. Based on my Lease Value Ratio (LVR) formula, there are a total of 18 cars rated as very good to excellent. The LVR rates the value of the Average Car Payment as a percentage of the car’s MSRP. This formula basically gives you an idea of how much bang you are getting for your buck. For more information on how these ratings work, please visit my, Car Leasing Terms section. Meanwhile, for the month of March,  I’ve ranked 40 cars from top to bottom based on the LVR. Read the rest of this entry

Cadillac CTS Coupe Lease

Even Better for Current Cadillac Owners

Current Cadillac owners can get another $1,000 back to apply to the cap reduction, makes the CTS Coupe the top lease deal for the month. With the $1,000 owner loyalty rebate, the new Cadillac CTS Coupe Lease has an average payment of $380.67 per month and an LVR of only .94%. Read the rest of this entry

Best New Car Lease Deals January 2014

Best Car Lease Deals January 2014 Acura TSXLocating the best new car lease deals from month to month is more of an art than a science. In many cases, the best car lease offers have nothing to do with a change in seasons and more to do with the model year of cars which are being replaced with new models. In the last few months we’ve seen some great deals being offered on Acuras, Infinitis and Cadillacs. The end of 2013 did have some reasonable lease specials on newer models like the 2014 Honda Accord LX and the 2014 Honda CR-V. If you couldn’t wait for the new year to lease that new Honda or Toyota, you have nothing to worry about. The newer model Honda’s and Toyota’s are still not ripe for the best lease deals. Among the best car lease deals of January 2014 is nothing new, ground-breaking or earth shattering. On the other hand, there are some good ones. Over 10 cars are rated as excellent or better. Here they are.

Is it any great surprise that Acura continues to dominate or remain near the top of the lease ratings from month to month? The 36 month lease on the TL and TSX yield a low, 1.00% Lease Value Ratio for both cars. With $2,499 down, you can lease a TSX for just $279.00 a month or a TL for $309.00 a month. And, there are no quirky odd-month lease terms which might put you at risk for paying a 2nd tax and registration fee for your state. The 36 month lease term is the best one there is and for the month of January, the Acura TSX and TL top the list for best overall lease values.

Also, near the top is the Infiniti G37 AWD drive which can be leased for a mere $299.00 a month with $3,499 down. This gives you an average payment of about $381.05; not bad for a luxury AWD sedan!
