Man that seems high. Very high. Run the numbers for buying it outright, including discounts and rebates, and I bet you could do a lot better.

$36,200 + 650 (Tech) + $895 destination charge = $37,745.00

Somehow with taxes on the rebate (?), they say the Market Value is $40295.

They're going to discount $12,746 (on the third go-around) because we're Costco customers for Vehicle Price (Net after Rebate): $27,549.

With Residual of $15098, 12k miles/yr lease with just our $500 deposit as down payment, the 36 month lease payment is $553.40. It also goes down to $475.57 if we put $3000 down. We have Tier 1 credit.

The Nissan website estimated $456/month for a similar lease but just 10k miles/year. Unfortunately this dealer does not offer 10k miles/yr leases. (We don't drive that much)

Anyone see any glaring issues?
Did you sign (your post is 10 days old)?

Do you still get the $7500 after this? If so, I still don't see how the math works out between the final price and the residual. How is that $553/month?

Honestly I would not pay a nickle over $300/month on a Leaf lease, and that's with $0 DAS (due at signing). So, $18k all in over the 3 years.

I'm currently leasing, 15k miles/year, a luxury car with an MSRP $20k higher than your leaf and I'm paying under $600/month with only $500 DAS--and with those higher miles it means I'm actually paying less than they want on that $37k MSRP leaf.

As for total buy price, I can buy locally a Leaf SL for $22,500 because they are knocking gobs off the top of these and even if they are not there is a power-company discount for everyone in my state (NY) of $5k, so now the sales price is $32k. Then there is another $2k state credit, $7500 federal, so $22,500 for an SL. S they are selling for about $15k. That is a 2019 leaf. These cars are nice for what they are, but don't anybody dare thinking these should cost anything like a lexus/infiniti/cadillac and when I see $500/month+ payment I don't like it.

I was given a quote for 36k out the door for a 2019 LEAF SL with tech package (after negotiation). Is that a good price right now? I feel like it is higher than previous posts (though those were for 2018s).

Yes, that's too high. Lease or buy? You should get at least $4k off MSRP, plus the full federal tax credit if you buy. With a lease you should get at least $5k in total discounts.

Thank you! What about 32k out the door on a purchase of 2018 LEAF SV with tech and all weather packages?

That's better. Discounts vary a lot by region, so you will see much better OTD prices, but that isn't terrible.

Really? Even without including state or federal tax credits?

I'm not sure I understand the question. Watch this topic for more data. I haven't been following it closely since I leased my car in April.

I'm not sure how much the tech and all-weather packages cost and around here the local utility company has a $3k rebate on top of the state ($5K) and Federal credits. So prices do vary a lot. Also the dealers all know this and adjust their selling tactics accordingly and some sell a lot of Leafs while some don't and just want to get rid of the quirky electric car on their lot...

I haven't done a lot of research on 2018 prices but I'd call that a good solid deal but I can guarantee someone will beat it. A lot of folks will pay more as well. It's a very good price but not exceptional IMHO.
