I got an unexpected parting gift from Nissan.
I did the extension and got the 3 free months, and after the reveal, opted to end the lease and Bolt. I called to double check something. There’s a clause in the original lease contract that ending early requires 30 days written notice, and I needed to know if that also applied to the extension. They were very nice on the phone and assured me that it no longer applied, I was all set to end the extension. Naturally, after leasing two LEAFs, they were curious as to why I wasn’t waiting for the 2018. I explained how I certainly would be if it was going to be 60 kWh, and how I was disappointed and would rather not switch, and would choose Nissan again when they’re back in competition, especially if they bring a 60 kWh eNV200. They were very sympathetic, and offered to waive the $395 lease return fee ($419.69 with MA tax). I accepted.
A decent goodwill gesture on their part.
