I’m not buying it.

After a lengthy test drive I was very impressed with the car, I’ve never driven a diesel before but I enjoyed the boatloads of torque down low and the feel of the 6-speed, but somehow when we got back a $21,000 car with an $8500 discount became a $594/mo lease payment over a two year term. It was like I was paying for the whole car in two years rather than leasing it. They also offered a purchase with 0% APR @ 72 months but that was only $5k off and the OTD was just too high.
