I take it you have a lease offer for under $300 a month from a Nissan dealer ?
I've always found lease offers interesting, if for no other reason than they present a riddle to unravel. This offer from Toyota for a Highlander valued at ~ $31k after a $2k downpayment is based on a $23k residual. So $10k of manufacturer estimated depreciation costs $3,000+ 299*35+ TTL + dealer garbage fees + lease return fees spread over 36 months.
I'll be quite surprised if Nissan estimates depreciation at anything less than 50% but I'm happy to be be shown wrong.
