Question 2013 Lease options..... Experience? PLEASE CHIME IN!!

The more and more I weigh my options, the more and more I feel like leasing may be the right option for me. I have never leased a vehicle, so I need a little insight from someone BESIDES a dealer on the process.

A little about me... I rarely keep a vehicle more that 2-3 years. I don't put a ton of miles on them since I also have a Harley. I also don't have a lot of money that I would be willing to use towards a down payment. And I would like my payments as low as possible.

I've had my eye on a 2013 Ram 1500 Sport Crew Cab with a few options (8.4" upgraded sound, heated seats, etc). I believe MSRP was right around $43K. Dealer had about $4K in rebates he offered me, but this was when I was leaning towards buying. Leasing was never even discussed. Would those discounts also go toward lowering the price and leasing the truck??

Anyone LEASED a 2013 Ram????? PLEASE GIVE ME SOME INSIGHT ON THE PAYMENTS, MILAGE RESTRICTIONS, DOWN PAYMENT, ETC.

Also, any idea of a ballpark figure on a monthly lease payment on a Ram that would be around $38K with rebates?? Is keeping the payment under $450/month possible??

THANKS IN ADVANCE for the help!!!

How flexible are they with the $2500 down? I'd really like to avoid any down payment if possible.

It really depends on your credit. Stellar credit you can get away with nothing down. Usually purchase incentives and leasing incentives are different. Right now unless it is a "Ram Trucks" special lease deal, it cost more to lease then buy on a new Ram. The residual values are not that great on them.

Go to Edmunds.com and check out the incentives page, it will list rebates and incentives for purchase and lease. It should also list if "Ram" has any special lease deals on certain models.

Good luck !!

credit doesn't matter that much. I had a score of 795, which is good.

The numbers gotta work. If you want a payment of 450, your gonna have to put something down. your credit score will not change that. They need a certain amount of money within those 3 years. that money comes from your monthly payments, and your down payment. if you don't want a down payment, you will pay more per month. If you make a down payment, your monthly payment will go down. I worked on my deal for 3 days. I was not getting let than 450 a month unless i put down 2500. They let me walk out once, they couldn't budge on the down payment and still make the deal happen. The fact that they let me leave rather than lower my down payment proves this. Once I realized that they could not do anything better, I went back, and gave them the 2500 and got the truck.

If you want to put nothing down, and have a lower payment. look at an express. That can be done no problem.

first question is do you need a sport model if you only keep it for a few years? Or would something less do just fine? I didn't lease mine I bought but this was my first question to myself.. I found myself with the answer I don't want or need all the junk like nav, a big touch screen, heated seats or anything. really all I wanted was a truck that had to have a hemi, to tow the bikes to different tracks and get me to work. so i put it to the dealer to find me a truck with what i wanted ( hemi engine thats it) i didn't care if it had manual windows and for the amount of money I wanted to spend. I had one dealer fail at the problem and one suceeded.

If I'm going to make the move, I need all the features. I don't mind paying for them, just curious on other people's experiences.
