Default Foreign Business Professionals Program - Car Lease

Hi All,

I am due to relocate from the UK to the US (Dallas) in May, and have been reading up on the foreign business professionals program that most of the manufacturers run.

Does anyone have any experience of these program they could share? and what sort of APR/interest rates are applicable?

Trying to do some budgeting and understanding what is and what isn't affordable.

Thanks

JK

Agree with the above, if you have the resources. $10k will get you a decent car that will certainly last you a couple of years, and at that point you will have established the credit where you can go out and get what you want at a decent low rate.

If you must finance, I would look at International Auto Source too before you commit.

mazda and vw run good expat programs.
I think the plus side of VW is that you can get a certified used car and not just a new one - which most of the other lease programs have.
IAS is very good and make it easy for you but it is not cheap and you absolutely must get offers from other programs and negotiate.
