Maybe a sign of a hot used car market or a properly structured lease with the idea of buying out. My residual for the current lease will be far below market value when it expires in January 2012, will be 23K on a an 08 with options in the sig. Not sure where you'll buy one for that price 6 months from now with those options. Leasing is not cast in stone there are a lot of ways to do it. Mine was also not based on sticker value but a tad over 5K off that to start the lease, Just need to drive the deal and bargain. I tcan work to your advantage.
