BUYING OUT LEASE

Wed Nov 29, 2017 10:41 am

Greets everyone,

I searched but couldn't find anything pertinent so if there is a thread about this please post link

Currently working with a dealership to buy out my lease. Lease balance is $11.5k and I have heard of discounts of $5k or more. Please post your thoughts or amounts you were able to buy your car at the end of lease term...thanks...

The topic you want is called "End of Lease Options" I think.

EDIT: Make that "Strategies." Topics get named with little thought for searchability... http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=16629

Regarding the discounts off residual, Nissan was doing that for a while, but I don't think they are doing that anymore, or at least not being as generous as they used to be.

When my 2012 Leaf came to the end of its lease, residual was almost $17k, and while I was offered $5k off of that, I opted not to buy it as I already gotten myself an eGolf. A month later I Googled the VIN and found it for sale at a CarMax for $10k, later reduced to $9700 before it disappeared off their page.
Blue Ocean 2012 Leaf SV, lost that 1st bar at 34 months/26,435 miles. Lease returned 2 months later. Final LeafStat figures: 225 Gids, 17.44 kWH, SOC 91.89%, SOH 82.36%, 69.49% HX, 54.57 Ahr, battery temp 61.8 F.
Now driving a 2015 VW eGolf SEL.

my mistake - I went to a salesman - called NMAC and they said go to the finance manager - called another dealer, spoke to FM and they are getting back to me...

I linked to the correct topic. Is there really any need to keep posting in this one? It makes information even harder to find in the future.

the "correct" topic is tons of semi relevant info - couldn't find anything specific to my question - I had looked there before I posted here...

there was other replies on this topic that were deleted - did we violate some kind of rule?
