Ok, got my emotions in check and requested the lease extension paperwork to give myself some breathing room. It was a very pleasant phone call. I hope to not run into the issues Leftie has seen.

The USPS finally delivered my second set of lease extension paperwork this morning. Unless NMAC decides to lose it, I should be safe, now... If anyone finds themselves in a similar situation, make sure that the lease payment for the current month has been made. The site showed me owing next month's as well, so I paid both, figuring I'd at least get until August to find a Bolt. Hopefully now I'll have until next June.

I worked with Brian and got $6400 off my MY14/3YR through Crown Nissan of Greenville in May. It was all done via Fedex and notary; but when I got all the forms to sign, Brian left the dealership and didn't return any of my calls or texts. I can't in good conscience recommend him, because of the lack of follow-through. Luckily, the finance person, Cindy, walked me through it and I paid via cashier check. I'm currently waiting on the title to arrive, unless they took me for a ride.


I received $6700 off my 2015 / 3yr. The day before my birthday I received a Fedex envelope which contained the registration. Nothing else. Still haven't heard back from Brian or the dealership. Didn't even bother to let me know they sent a Fedex pkg. I still have no paperwork from the dealership at all. I actually receive more information from the person at the bank handling my financing. Pretty sad! The credit union I'm working with is fantastic in all aspects thus far. If they had branches closer, I'd probably move my business accounts over to them.



guessing you meant "title" and not "registration" This is good but how much time did you have on your lease? I think that is one of the determining factors on whether you will receive an offer or when?


36 month lease. I purchased it in June, the lease would have ended in October. Nope, I meant registration as the dealership took care of the paperwork on that. The title went to the bank since I financed the balance. I got a 2.6% rate for 36 months, with a payment less then the monthly lease payment was.

oh ok. different process but anyway.

Yeah you didn't have much time left on your lease and most seem to be getting the best deals when they are in the 6 or so months of their leases

Finally found a dealer who would work with me. 3yr lease on 2015 S w/QC. About $4200 off current amount so about $8900 with final about $10,000. So I’m definitely going to wait, but glad I found someone who knows Leafs.

Just wanted to follow up now that my buyout on my '14 SL is complete so I had all the correct figures. I can't say enough about how easy it was to work with my salesman, he communicated almost solely with me via text which made things very convenient. Once we settled on a price the paperwork took about an hour and I was out the door.

Residual: $14905
Actual agreed upon price: $8975
With taxes and fees I was out the door for $10,300.

If you need help with your buyout consider reaching out to Costa Christou at Courtesy Nissan of Tampa 813-870-3333.

^^^ Not a bad deal especially considering the drying up of incentives to buy the cars after our leases are up. Mine is up Oct 5th so at the very least I can see what the 2018 leaf will look like. We really just wanted to buy this one, but now that the incentives are gone we are out car shopping for something else again.

Was just offered $4k off. Think the incentive is still $4700, they want to keep $700. Just an update.

I'd still like to buy my 2013 just to resell it and avoid eating end of lease costs, but with a $4700 incentive it would cost about twice what it's worth to resell.
