Lexus HS250H Lease

If you follow me on twitter you know that I’ve been car shopping. It feels like it’s been going on forever, and to some degree it has.

My husband and I both needed new cars. I wanted something safe, Jane wanted a hybrid, my husband wants something fast and no one wants to pay too much.

Lexus has an amazing program for the HS250H that ends tomorrow. If you’re near Van Nuys, CA I went to Sam Santoso at Keyes. It was the easiest transaction I’ve ever had, and it was not particularly expensive.

In the interest of sharing what I think is a very good deal (even though this feels hideously tacky), I’ll give you the details of my lease. It’s $1,200 cash and $450 a month, 36 months and 12,000 miles are included as well as the technology package (duh- I’m still me), upgraded chrome wheels, and two years of service.

How do I know this is a good lease program? Well, when I was at the dealership yesterday driving the car and Sam was very apologetic when his cell phone rang. “I’m really sorry, I need to take this call.” I wandered a few moments, and after Sam finished the call he said, “This guy wants exactly the same car as you, except in black on black and he’s giving me the grind.” I smiled at him and said, “well, just structure my deal like his and I won’t have to give you the grind.”

The guy on the phone? It’s my husband’s best friend. I saw his deal, he saw mine, it’s all good.
Now we just need one more car. I’m pretty sure I know what Mr. G wants, we just have to find it.
