So I got an email from a salesperson at the MB dealer I have bought/leased all my cars. You all have experienced the worst I am sure but with age and wisdom, I have come to expect this from time to time. The email was offering his assistance with my B250e lease coming to an end.
First, I have a regular salesperson so not sure why he was allowed to contact me.
Second, I suggested they buy the car from MBFS at a discount and sell it to me for a negotiated market. A classic win-win. Not to be. Ready for this? His quote was HIGHER than the lease purchase option in the lease. Crazy stuff.
Third, I said I would buy a dealer used EQC from them since they are not yet available in the U.S. but MB had some to show dealers what it was. No response after two tries. I wonder if he even knows what an EQC is?
Well, with the lockdown, am thinking of not renewing my office lease but work from home. So I can dispense with my favorite commuting car, the B250e, at lease end. Too bad, it has 9K+ miles and never had a problem save the fender bender when someone hit me overnight while I was parked on the street.
