Thanks to leafer007, I was able to negotiate what I think is a reasonable deal to purchase my 15 Leaf. I felt lucky to be able to get this done, considering the issues that have been reported here. I thought I'd contact the d(st)ealership that leased me the car, much to my surprise, they got very close to the posted discounts from that chart. Again, thank you leafer007, and to everyone contributing to this thread.
With a 2015, I was on a 24 month lease, extended in April, for 4 months. Then an additional month, because I couldn't get together, I or the dealership was too busy to get the paperwork accomplished, mostly my fault. So I made 29 payments of $273.44, then one final payment t of $9621, (the buyout price was 12.2K, according to the NMAC website) which included their $299 service fee. Plus TT&L, it was a plate/tag transfer of $99, and tax of $481.05. So out the door for $10,201.05.
I did finance through NMAC at a horrid rate of 5.93%, but will refinance that soon enough at a more attractive rate. I wasn't going to quibble about something that I can easily make go away after I owned the car.
And I will be purchasing the 60/60K mile extended warranty as soon as my mileage is closer to the factory warranty expiring. http://nissansrextendedservicecontracts ... -coverage/
I've leased these cars since 12, the lower 84 EPA range works for me, and will continue to work with no range problems for the anticipated future. The car and battery have been taken care of, I don't see myself losing a bar for quite sometime. I couldn't think of any good reason to not buy this car considering the lease rates of the My2018's.
To repeat, THANKS to EVERYONE that posted on this thread, it was extremely helpful.
