CarsDirect's findings over the past week were largely oriented around bad news. In addition to lousy Audi lease deals, price increases from Kia, and a horribly expensive lease on the 2021 Buick Envision, we found that high residual values on the new Mustang Mach-E may not offset Ford's handling of an EV tax credit.

2021 Buick Envision lease. Buick's newest SUV can be awfully expensive to lease.

The biggest price hike is a $355 bump on the 2021 Telluride, with newer models like the sporty K5 and value-packed Seltos affected, too. Full Analysis »

Honda Fit deals. Even though this will be the final year for the Fit, your chances of getting a great deal on the discontinued hatchback could be extraordinarily slim.
