If you make less than $35,600/$72900 (single/household of 4) you qualify for some major incentives that can make the car free to lease.

If you don't qualify, you can still negotiate low payments. One guy got $35/month.

YMMV based on local availability and dealer competition.

It would be nice if someone can edit wiki about their experience. Looking for a dealership that's willing to make this real.

perhaps no one is commenting because of those Leaf lease slickdeals that were also titled as "free" but was actually including estimated gas savings into the price.

or perhaps all the cali SDers left to go to the dealership and didn't have time to leave a comment.

seeing as almost all the savings are coming from either the government or ford corporate, the dealer has no good reason to be a stickler for price. esp. since these are old models that they probably rather have off their lot at this point...

at any rate, if they're demanding full msrp and won't budge that brings the deal up to 83/mo which is still a pretty darn good price.

I'm poor enough I'd still totally benefit from this, but rich enough that I just don't qualify.

What's a household of 2 requirement?

I don't know, but I think there are alternative incentives you would qualify for that aren't income based.

I could be wrong, though, as I'm not a California resident.

Well it's last year's model, so you never know, especially on the last day of the quarter/month

Not a bad Deal. Total Lease Cost: $4,055. for a $30,000 car.
If you bought a new one, you would lose more than that in depreciation the first year.

Impossible to find one in SoCal. All have an MSRP of 31K or so, and the dealers are quoting a lease price in the 200's even with all of the incentives. Seems like they're trying to screw someone over who doesn't know lease numbers. If anyone can get this to work, props to you. I tried hard.

I think even the homeless people and part-time college students in my area make more than that. Frown

Wow.. need to go try this tonight

Don't qualify for the $4000 but the $2500 rebate for sure.

Where did you try? The ones in my area are around that for MSRP. Calculating the numbers still ends up with around $100/month, plus the $2500 rebate. So ends up being around $70/month for the life of the lease, which, while not free, is very affordable.
