When I sent my VIN I mentioned that I found out about the buyouts on this site (not by name) and that I'd seen cars similar to mine bought out for less than $5k. I got one response today, and...they offered $5k. I'd want to make sure this price is inclusive of all fees (but not sales tax) but the offer is...tempting. My range is inadequate for next Winter, so the plan would be to drive the car a few more months until I find the EV I want, at a reasonable lease rate. If I like the Bolt I could wait for prices to drop. I could also wait for the Ioniq. Then I'd either resell the car for maybe $7 or $8k (it only has 16,000 miles on it and used Leafs are rare here) or maybe get a dealer to give me $5500 for it in trade, after negotiating first with "no trade."
This is certainly unexpected.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
