Hello All, I'm new to this forum and I joined because my girlfriend wants to lease a 6MT rescue green X s-package with no options except for the dual top. We're totally clueless on what we should expect as far as lease payments. We went to a few local dealers and they said it would be around 320-330 a month with no money down, just taxes, title and acquisition fees. Is this a good price for this car? It seems kinda high to me knowing that for a few extra bucks a month you can get an acura or an infiniti or a lexus, any of which are way more expensive as far as msrp. Are we getting ripped or is 320/month pretty much standard for an X with dual top? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the long post.... Also, anyone from the NY tri-state area suggest any good dealerships? thanks
If she is considering either a JK or an Acura or Lexus, she will probably be disappointed with the JK. It is basically a very off-road capable truck as opposed to a car based vehicle. It rides more like a truck than a car. It is very noisy compared to a car. It doesn't have very many comfort features compared to a more car like vehicle.
It does however perform great off-road. Even the most basic X model can go just about anywhere. If she wants a vehicle for fun and exciting off-road use then a JK is just about the perfect vehicle.

Thanks man. I'm usually not so irratable but yesterday wasn't the greatest day for me at work. Then again I never really have a good day (I'm an auditor). She has her mind set on a Wrangler. She wasn't thinking of another car, I just said that cause I see specials for those cars for 350/month with no money down and when I see 330/month for a wrangler that costs $10,000 less it just seems kinda high. When we went on vacation in Mexico we rented one and she fell in love with it. It was the previous gen Wrangler and when we went to see the new ones she wanted to get one right then and there but I told her to do more research to find out what a good deal would be. We're planning on going to some more dealerships this weekend so I just wanted to know if those figures are good enough to jump on or if those are rediculously high.
