Re: End of Lease Strategies?

Sun May 14, 2017 7:05 am

Around here the supply of used LEAFs has become very constrained. I am seeing more and more out of state cars and the prices are up. Anyone else seeing this?

Are the great buyout discounts still happening? I have a friend who ending their lease in July and wants to buy the LEAF if the price is right. They have all 12 bars, (`90% health) and only charge 1-2 times a week. (I told them it would be better to plug in a few hours a day instead but....)

The issue is they are unable to get any buyout info.

They are unable to get ANY buyout information, or they are unable to find out what the NMAC incentive (discount on residual) will be for JULY? I don't imagine anyone knows what the July incentive will be, but surely they can find out what the incentive is right now.

the overly complicated answer to your question would be as stated.... buyout

I got an email from Nissan today stating that they are announcing the 2018 extended range new gen Leaf in Sept. They offered 3 months free to extend my lease for one year. If the buyouts don't go up now, they never will. I am VERY curious to the range on the new leaf. Everything I read says 180-250 miles.....

With a likely 37-40kwh pack, as seems likely for the initial version, 140-150 miles is much more likely. A 60kwh pack may be offered later, or for a lot more money in September, but I'd expect just 30 and ~40kwh versions this year.
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

Anything less then 200 mile range will be seen as a HUGE disappointment. With the Bolt at 250 and Model 3 at 218, anything less then 200 = fail. Especially since it took them so long to come to market.

This opinion you have has been expressed many many many times. The Bolt and the T3 will have more range for more dollars. But there will be plenty of people who will be more than happy with 160 miles of range if its the right price. Right now, the Bolt is not at the right price for me but different areas have different perks.

But what Nissan does do is adds another very viable option to the table and I expect that it will be so for many many more people that either the T3 or the Bolt. I can only hope Chevy will pull their head out of their asses and realize how stupid they are.

Good afternoon,

My apologies for being MIA for those who have tried to contact me by email. I've moved to a new Nissan dealership, but I am still available to assist you with a buyout quote if you are interested in purchasing your LEAF. I currently do not have an email, so if you will, text or DM me your VIN and how long your lease was for and I can get a quote to you.

Thank you,

I agree. If they come in with a sub 200 mile range, they will need to come in well below the other two in price.

Btw, on a side note if ANYONE is considering a Bolt, I STRONGLY advise you sitting it one and taking it for a long test drive first. I sat in one yesterday and that is one narrow uncomfortable seat. It was very disappointing. My leaf's fit and finish was also miles above the bolt. There was misaligned hard plastic everywhere and the sticker was $43k. Mercy.

Anyone know the current buyout incentives for 2015 SV w QC? 24 mth 30k mile lease.

Sounds like they might have been $6700, can anyone confirm for May?

Had not planned to buy ours, buy now reconsidering. Will turn it in this week (June 1) most likely unless I can get a decent buyout offer.

I expect a glut in GA come June as many bought end of May 2015 before the tax credit went away.

Thanks in Advance, and any input would be appreciated.
* 2015 SV with QC/LED HL (35k miles in 24 mths, no bar loss)
* 2013 SV with F07 QC (Avg'd 1450miles / mth, kept for 28500 miles, very good experience, no bar loss even with 100% charging)
