I've noticed that their 24-month lease (at 9.1%) appears to have higher
interest than the 36-month lease (at 8.7%). While your overall payout
would still be lower with 24 months, I would still negotiate, say a 7.7%
interest rate (which is equitable with their 42-month plan, at a 9.4%
interest rate). Of course, the cheapest payment plan is to pay cash up-
Usually, a shorter payment plan ought to attract the lowest interest
rate. Am I right, or am I missing something?
