Re: End of Lease Strategies?

Ok my wife and I made the choice to take the 6 month lease extension with 3 of the months being "FREE". Honestly, we love our little Leaf and were just not quite ready to part with it. This gives us 6 more months to:

1.) See if the new 2018 Leaf is worth paying full price for, because you KNOW that's what they gonna charge.

or

2.) 6 more months to see if the big "buy out" incentives come back. For the record, Nissan finance who is setting up the extension said we could still buy out our leaf at any time if the big incentives come back. Honestly, this is a no brainer.

:D

Same. Best case the incentives kick back in and I get a great deal on an extra car. Worst case, I get to keep my Leaf, which I still like, until my Model 3 is delivered.

I am willing to bet you that incentives will still be available so the only question is how much money are you willing to lose?

Even with the opportunity to get a new Leaf for about what I owe on my current one, I just couldn't. I really like the seat heaters , steering wheel heaters, the seat fabric and all the other touches that are now gone from the SV. I looked at a S and it is just too basic. I don't want to pay for the SL and the base SV trim has been gutted.

I may still buy a new one in a few months as I'm guessing the floor is going to fall out once the official announcement for the '18 is made. If I can get the SV with the extra trim package for a good deal I would jump on it. 30KW would be plenty even for my regional commutes and would be a great second car. Plus, I'm still a Leaf fan. So much fun and so practical.

I'm not sure what you mean. We will not buy our leaf out at the end of the 6 month extension unless there are BIG incentives that come back. But it gives us another 6 months of lease for the price of 3. That's a no brainer.

seems pretty straightforward to me. You stated a 2018 would only be available at full price and I contend there will still be discounts.
