I am going in tonight to see how much they want for me to buy out my 2015 SV. I do not have high hopes.



The dealer gave me a price of $13,200 and it worked out to $14,100 out the door after sales tax and tag. Last month Nissan offered me $3000 off of my $17,000 lease buyout. So in the end I came out better off, for the most part I came out ahead by the amount that my taxes worked out to be.

Is this offer still valid? Which dealer? I also want to buy out my 2014 Nissan

I also want to buy out my lease, but want to wait for 2 things to happen that should cause the buy out to be reduced. 1. Chevy Bolts to get on the road in numbers, Nissan to announce the 2018 setup.

NMAC doesn't follow logic in the usual sense, so I suggest you wait for an offer you can live with, and take it.
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.

already said this once but it bears repeating. Nissan is giving away 30 kwh LEAFs right now. I got my lease; 3 years, 15,000 annual miles, zero down, $245 a month. That was almost 2 months ago. the deals are BETTER now.

The best part is that the deep discounts have caused them to slash residuals and my residual is $9K. That is almost worth buying! Remember, in 3 years I will have more capacity than a new 24 kwh pack!

Right, you always get the best of everything, e.g. the least battery capacity loss, the best Leaf deals,
and the greatest range. How about scanning your latest Leaf deal and posting it for the forum.

A simple scan of the final contract would suffice, your "life history" is not needed.

Be nice. It's ok to share. Just browse through what you don't want to see.

Thanks for that level of detail. Since it was on your dime, you have every right to express enthusiasm :D

It's been a long time since I was on the board but I wanted to share my lease buyout experience. I upgraded my 2011 to a '13 SL when my first lease expired. I had planned to buy the '13 and was hoping to get a price at least $6k below my buyout of $15.4k. My lease ends in March.

This week, NMAC sent multiple emails and called me to discuss end of lease options including VERY COMPETITIVE buyout options. When I called they said they couldn't discuss specific incentives and I had to contact my dealer. I reached out to five area dealerships via email. One gave me $5k in dealer assistance ($12.7K OTD) and the other 4 gave me nothing. They just quoted the buyout cost of $15.4K. There are hundreds of LEAFs coming back on the LA market in the next few months and several low mileage, late model cars available now for less than $10K. There is no way I am buying my own car and saving it from auction unless I get an offer below $10k. NMAC should be handling this as they have in the past by giving us transparent incentives.
