    Default Mercedes Agility Finance

    Hi All.

    I am not sure if this is the best group for the topic but nothing else seems a better fit so here goes.

    Does any body have experience with Mercedes Agility finance? Pros, cons and issues experienced? How would you rate it against normal lease or installment financing. I would like to have some information before venturing into the unknown.

    Your inputs would be much appreciated. Regards.

    I have not used Agility Finance, but it looks like a good deal if:
    - You plan to get a new vehicle in 3-5 years
    - You do not drive excessive kms and can properly predict mileage that you will travel during contract period.
    - You do not plan to retire soon as you will have to hand back the vehicle at the end of the term and have no deposit for another vehicle.

    Full Maintenance Leases are very popular in other countries but only becoming more popular in SA now.

    We have more than 20 company vehicles on this model. Off Balance Sheet, predictable running costs and lower monthly installments. Makes sense.

    It's basically a balloon payment, but the dealer guarantees covering the balloon payment as the end of the contract.

    I'm considering trading my wife's Discovery Sport for a GLE350d on Agility when the new model get released later this year or 2019.

    It's a way of tying you into the brand.

    At 60, I wouldn't do it.
