    Smile Leased a 2013 today!

    I've been noticing some reviews on ATS for a while and some motortrend head-to-head comparison on youtbue really caught my eyes. Attracted by the 299 +2799 lease offer and went for the dealer yesterday.

    After some negotiation I drove off with the 294 per month (including tax and ally smartLease Protection) and 2500 down. It's a 2.5L model with theCue so I got an ipad (3 i think?) too. This is in California and the smartlease is quoted 695 which is 20 a month. Counting the 8% sale tax, the raw monthly payment (before tax and lease protect) is about 255 a month.

    So if I had going for zero down, this itemized to 355 a month, incl. tax and the protection plan. I feel like there's still probably some $500 room to talk down but I'm happy with the car (did a road trip today. I'm aware of the diff between 2.5 and 2.0T but as a previous Saab 93 2.0t owner I think I can live with it. I only played with Cue for one day but I think it already reversed some of neg feedbacks I heard. More practice does help I guess?

    There're a few 2013 left so the inventory is becoming low and dealer is definitely piling 2014 ones!

    Hope this info will be helpful for someone in future (maybe for 2014 future buyers?)

    Now enjoy the glacier blue!

    NIce! Enjoy! Im looking to lease a white one tomorrow, just lie what you got. Funny, I had a 2003 saab 9-3 linear with an aero body kit, Im on saabcebtral, 0393.....

    So im looking at an ATS, lease, zero down, no tax, trade in my busted 2010 maxima with 2 payments left and 5K worth of damage, for a 2013 ats with heated seats, sunroof, premium paint and CUE with surround sound......375.00/month, Should have it Wednesday..!

    hi caddy thrilled to see you around! We should probably exchange email Im mostly silent on the saab forum except when i have an issue..

    Are u using trade in against ur lease? Are you on 2.5 too?

    ----------

    I bet if somebody start a survey on this forum asking for prev saab owners some heads will bubble up

    Did you test drive a 2.0T? I also had a Saab 2.0T and it seemed much smoother and much more responsive than the cadillac 2.0T. That is one reason is opted for the 2.5 also. What was your conclusion when comparing the two turbos?

    I can see my saab gas pedal to be more responsive. One reason i guess is the cadi pedal is like honda coming from bottom. 2.5 is less powerful than 2.0 of course but only 2.5 has cue at my dealer.

    The way saab engine responds is difeerent. I guess whenever switch car theres an adaptation curve.
