LEASED a new SV on Friday (3/24/17), 12,000 miles per year, as follows:
- $2800 down (drive-off, all included, no surprises)
- $140/month (=$129+8.25% tax) * 35 months
- $10,5xx residual from 0.3 * MSRP of $35,xxx
- Non-VPP; no floor mats or cargo cover (=$400-500!)
Asked my local dealer if they could beat Boardwalk in RWC's best offer.
Boardwalk is one of the biggest LEAF dealers in the country (by # sold).
(Quite happy with the result.)
I think I just felt my paradigm shift.
2012 SL (One of the colors): 2-year lease, 2012+,
2015 S w/QC (A different color): 3-year lease, 2014+,
2017 SV (Same color as 2015 S): 3-year lease, 2017+, lower monthly than either above(!)
