Car Leasing Alternative, $1k off start payment until 10/31/17 (So Cal Only)

-1 Deal Score
10,022 Views
Fair.com [fair.com] just launched in Los Angeles with a way to shop for cars on your phone and return them whenever you want. They're running a promo for $1,000 off a car's 'start payment' with code FAIROCT (expires 10/31/17). A lot of the cars have a start payment of $1,000 so the discount makes it zero before taxes, fees, registration. They have a price guarantee on the monthly payment -- at least as low as comparable leases and loans. Heard about it in the news.

See screenshots for sample deals.

Pro's:
  • Return the car anytime w/ 5-day notice (no long term commitment)
  • Monthly Payment guaranteed to match comparable leases/loans
  • $1,000 off start payment is a huge discount
  • Monthly payment covers maintenance, warranty, roadside assistance
  • Big selection of cars from all major brands
Con's
  • The cars are used, but seem to have low miles
  • Price doesn't include insurance but you can add it in the app
  • iOS only

I've been waiting for the day when I can lease a car through my phone. Its nice not having to go to the dealership, most of the time I leave wondering if I got a good deal or ripped off. This seems like the future and am excited to try it out.

First takes all your personal info, then tells you it's not in your area and you can't delete or change any of it.

Oh and the "privacy" policy says in essence we'll sell your info immediately, and harass the living shit out of you [honcker.com]. vomit

I really thought I'd wised up to it, first accidental self-breach in a decade plus. Gah.

I wonder if they will still get you for any little damage and charge for low tire tread when you return the car.

You don't have to put any personal information. Used to ask for SSN but that's not the case anymore.

Just tried with fake name and since it couldn't do a soft verification, it asked for SSN. I refuse to enter a SSN to browse...

Made the same mistake a few months ago. If you figure out how to get out of their system, let me know.

I step away for a few weeks and technology flies by me.

Fair and Honckner are both decent, I suppose. The best option when leasing is still to do the research yourself and learn to properly negotiate.
