I remember when my sister leased her S40 with a money factor of .00001Thank you for that info. It seems there is still a lot of confusion about this "loophole" but so far MB and Audi have been open about passing that money on as a lease incentive. I just posted this above as well, but I'm also now hearing that Volvo is doing the same (at least for the V60), but charging dearly for the service with a lease money factor up up north of 9% APR.
I've leased for years now and it fits my car ownership needs and my desire to enjoy something new and different every few years. I have 1 year left on my S60 lease, and I'm totally bummed out that leasing is likely not going to be an option any more....it's just not making any financial sense.
