Thanks, I remember seeing it but after reading it again, it explains some stuff: The amount is based on the 2002 model city rating and the lifetime fuel savings. That helps explain the reason why the Golf DSG is $1700 and the Audi A3 w/same exact mpg rating is $1300. However, there was no Audi A3 TDI so I wonder what model they are using as the base rating.
I don't know how lease rates are but I'm guessing they are somewhat high due to low residual values. A lease is like paying the depreciation on a car. You can take the credit if you lease.
I would not sell the car to anyone other than a dealer, private party, or auction house. It sounds like a scam where they will probably charge you or the buyer fees up the wahzoo. Someone is getting ripped off, I can guarantee that - if not you then the buyer (probably with high interest rates).
