There is also a mandatory inspection for the warranty, that costs between $60 and $100.

So I went to two dealers and let's say they are all more interested in getting me into a 2017 Nissan. All said a warranty extension (essentially a 4yr/48,000 mile warranty) will run me about $1,000. But of course they can offer me a good deal on a 2017 Leaf....something in the neighborhood of $159 a month for the 2017 Leaf with no money down. I am actually thinking of taking it because no so sure when the 2018 will be out and this is more of a commuter car for me. Was unimpressed that they all seem to know nothing (or acted like they did know anything) about the 6 month extension from Nissan.

Keep in mind that when they talk about a "4yr/48,000 mile warranty" they most likely mean from the in-service date, or to put it another way, an actual one year extension. Four years from now for $1k would be a pretty good deal.

Yeah but problem is that I would only be keeping the car for 6 months at best....assuming of course there are no delays on the 2018 model.

I was able to pay monthly, and if I had canceled early, would not have had to pay the rest.

Interesting, I did not even ask if I could pay monthly. Ok, will check back with them tomorrow.

I tried to extend a 3y lease on a 2015 Leaf S, lease maturity date is 1/1/2018. The rep in Nissan's lease call center told me - after talking to her supervisor - that they offer no incentives in my case as the lease is mature in 2018. So no extension with free months for me (I can extend until 3/18 but would have to pay full lease price, no thank you).

Given the low range of the car I am not too upset. Nissan's problem will be that I will not wait for the 2018 Leaf, I will need a new car on January 1st 2018, and a Nissan it won't be. Well, their loss...

Well I've had my 3 free months and now that the disappointment is official I'll pay them for another month and then Bolt. The lease requires 30 days written notice to terminate early. I think I can buff out the minor dings I have so hopefully can avoid excess wear and tear. Tires are ok. The disposition fee will be offset by those 3 free months I guess.
