Re: Leaf Price / Discount discussion thread

I have an 812 credit score, my desire to sit on my ass a full day in an out of state dealership, have them change terms, try to add on crapola and then end up paying an out of state entity each month I s minimal. (Wisconsin is not a place to buy an ev)
Every car I have ever owned was bought from at least 150 miles away.

Just cause I get zero percent does not motivate me, in fact taking zero percentage loans increase load and decrease your credit score over time. I rather get the cash discount up front then earn 1% for a while.

My main frustration is that the discount is tied to some form of financing, it used to be cash talked and you could just do a quick clean sale, spending a full day filling out paperwork ruins it for me.

My only solice is that I don't buy a car often.

Generally, dealers can no longer adjust the residual value. This may not apply to clearance cars, though...

That is a silly frustration. There is no penalty for early payment of the loan so take the deal, pay it off it really bothers you.

~30k should have literally zero impact on your credit score even if you keep the free money and just pay off the loan. Unless I guess that your income to LTV is really fucked up. In basic terms, anyone who has been an adult from 20-40 has an 800 FICO. Getting below that level requires being a real dumbass, or I guess a real set of shitty circumstances.

The discounts on a Leaf S24 have me thinking. Is this a good price in Syracuse, NY?
.
$1800 down/ $199 lease. With an $8,700 buy out at the end, you can lease for 3/ 36,000 and if you like it, you can end up owning a new $30,000 sticker Leaf S24 for $18,000 plus tax. $16,000 if they give me my trade in.
.
Here is the offer as posted on Nissan with no extra dealer participation included yet. If I can get them to give me $2000 on paper for my worn out 2001 Insight I will do it even though I still have a perfectly good Honda Fit and my trusty, 110 mpgUS Honda CBR250R in the garage.

impossible to say. you need to look at what other offers are in your area. also if you have any other discounts not considered like an employee purchase program (you would be surprised how many have one that they are not aware of) returning customer, etc.

Now for me? No, it would be a terrible deal and I will prove that in a few days

It looks like there is also a $2000 state tax rebate in NY that would get me down to $14,000 with the dealer participating $2000 for my otherwise worn out trade in.

The Nissan web site seems to have hidden the current lease deal which is still good until Dec., 5. It now only shows choices to build a 2017 and lease for $778. Good luck with that one.

You don't want to drive an S24 in Syracuse. With the heat on you'll have a range of about 40-50 miles, with the 50 being in mild Winter temps. I'd also not count on the NY tax credit if you buy this year. When I asked the idiots at NYSERDA if it will be retroactive, they replied, last month, that they don't know - it isn't written yet. Their excuse is that they have until April 2017 to implement it. I actually used to respect NYSERDA...

How much does the space heater draw? Compared to the heat pump? Does the SV still use a space heater below 32F?
.
But I would rather have the 30kWh battery for the newer longevity than the S24 that is at my local dealer. My commute is only 40 miles and I can charge at work so the space heater is ok. And I have plug in electric clothing from the bike.
