Re: End of Lease Strategies?

Mon Oct 08, 2018 2:53 am

Hello All,

I have a 2015 S with 31000 miles on it. Lease ends in about 2 months. Paid around $8300 in lease payments (saved additional $2500 from CA). My residual is $9300. Thinking about extending lease for few months. Has anyone received lease extensions from Nissan lately, if so what was the reasoning.

Thanks

"Waiting for the 2019 long range Leaf" seems to have worked for at least one person. Remember that you can end the extension any time you like.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Never hurts to ask. Your residual is...quite frankly too high. The residual on my 40 kwh LEAF is 9500. Rumors have the 64 kwh LEAF in showrooms by early Spring. I take that to mean late Feb in key markets, most of the US by mid to late March. IOW, nearly the same as the 2018 launch.

So you don't have long to wait.
