I am a leasing newbie. The dealership offered to lower interest rate if I put security deposit which works out to about 7% return on deposit - is this a commonly used option? Anything to watch out for?
Will you get the full deposit back at lease end? I personally would not put any money upfront except for 1st month. Thats because if the car is stolen or totaled, the upfront money is gone. Insurance pays the leaser/leasing company for the loss and not leasee/you.
