Just came back from the dealer, they want $414 a month for 36 months with $4000 down 12k a year. Just sounds crazy to me especially since we pay $350 for a 2010 TSX 15k a year 3k down. Any help would be appreciated.
I did the same obersvation. Actually I want to lease too, because it is better for me for tax deduction, because I use the car for my business. But lexus still charge 0.15$ for extra Km, which is really expensive. This is 0.08$ on the TSX. If I compare, I can get a fully loaded TSX (tech model) as I want, for 750$ per month, 0$ down (with 40 000 km per year), and if I want the same thing on the CT, it cost 929$ per month, 0$ down.
The TSX have a better sound system, better handling, a lot more of power, but do 10L/100 km in city... and there is the big difference bitween the two. And the other big difference is the lease end value. The CT have a low lease end value and that is why the monthly payment are so high if I compare to the TSX.
