      Back to S60 Ownership!

      Just did a lease pull-ahead with my 2017 S90 T6 Momentum into a 2019 S60 T6 R-Design, fully loaded with B&W, Polestar optimization, exterior styling kit, sport chassis, 19í R-Design rims, and a whole bunch of other things I canít remember. Excited to be back in the S60 family!

      I know that car very well. It's a loaner they had on the lot. The ONLY reason I didn't get that specific car that you purchased was because the color is a bit bright for me and calls too much attention and just not my style. When I inspected it, the paint was in very good condition for the amount of miles it had. If it was any other color I probably would have gotten it.

      Instead, I purchased a black S60 R Design T6 with Polestar from that same dealership 2 months ago. I was really looking for the sport chasis and exterior styling but those are extremely hard to find. If you have any questions or need a recommendation for someone that can detail the car that is local, let me know. The guy that details is also part of this forum.

      Congrats!

      I have had only white, silver, and black cars up to now, and I generally hate red cars. But this one caught my eye and everything just came together for me.

      I was a little hesitant because it was a loaner but it is in great shape and we got a killer deal on it. The option combo couldnít be beat either. The dealer was a breeze to do business with as well. Their new sales manager and our salesman made it really easy to lease this car from them. Kundert was very solid when they owned this location and Iím happy to see that Prestige is continuing and improving upon what they built.

      I wouldnít worry about it being a loner.

      If the car has no visible damage from drives, like scratches or dents your good.

      Itís really a lottery if a mechanical failure will happen . Sure mileage, usages, maintenance, climate, and road conditions will have itís affect on the outcome but in the end all cars are designed for its usage and cycles only manufacturing mistakes still in pass zone or missed by quality control, parts defects, and poor design will have the biggest bearing on mechanical failure.

      And none can been seen when purchasing a car unfortunately.

      Not worried at all really. Itís a lease and I am not planning on buying it at the end, so any mechanical issues would just be a time inconvenience.

      I just did the same as OP - traded in my 2018 S60 T5 for a brand new 2019 Fusion Red T6 R-design. Anyone looking for a great deal on S60 in So Cal should do themselves a favor and search out remaining 2019's. Lease incentives that Volvo offers on these are eye-popping: $12,750-13,800, depending on the trim. Yes, residuals and money factor are not great compared to 2020 model, but if one actually wants to buy the car out (like me ), leasing effectively results in getting 30% off MSRP. Plus Volvo pull-ahead program covers up to 9 months of payments on top of that, which is crazy

      Is there a way to search for deals like this in other parts of the country?

      Yes. Go to Volvocars.com and configure your car the way you want it - note MSRP. On the summary page (right under the top image), there is a link to the "Payment Estimator". Click on it and enter your nearest dealer zip code. It will show current Volvo pricing on both lease and purchase, specific to your geographical area. Modify parameters to your liking (lease length, cash down, etc.) - the monthly payment will change accordingly. Keep in mind that there is no way to input dealer discount on this page, but you can use "Cash Down" to do that (try a conservative 7% of MSRP). Also, note that monthly payment calculation assumes that you pay acquisition fee ($995) and first payment as part of the lease (not upfront, as most people will prefer). It also doesn't include Loyalty discount, if you own another Volvo - which will reduce the monthly a little as well. The final number is just an estimate, but comes pretty close in my experience - confirm with your dealer. Final hint: in the address bar on your browser, manually replace "2020" with "2019" and reload. This will show incentives for the 2019 model (you will have to enter zip code again). Incentives vary widely depending on zip - for example there is a huge difference between North and South Cali for 2019 S60. In my case (zip 91107) the incentive on 2019 R-design was $13,800. I also got ~8% dealer discount ($3,900) on top of the incentives, which brought the cap cost of the car down to $32,855 or about 35% off MSRP. Crazy, I know. Get the shortest lease (24mo) and buy the car out in 6 months - you will keep most of the savings.
