  1. Hello Marc

    I just read your article about your car else experience
    and I don’t get a few points

    your deal supposed to be $0 Down payment right…??

    but hete in the lease document https://marcfrons.com/lease.html

    at section 4 it says


    DID YOU PAY THAT do get the lease..???

    1. Yes — that’s the point. They always say “no money down” until the time comes to get your car, in which case you should walk away, which is clearly what I should have done. But then I wouldn’t have written the story.

  2. Hey, do you remember what the original MSRP was of that Infinity in your car lease article? The exact one you got, G37x, premium package, navigation system, interior accents. Original MSRP of this?
