Has anyone had any success contacting Nissan Finance a few months early to ask for (financial) help? Would NF ever waive your remaining payments a few months early, if you got another Leaf lease? How does the Nissan Loyalty rebate apply in the above scenario and how do you ensure that the Dealer isn't screwing around with the money figures to their benefit?
We're not even 1yr into our 2 yr lease and we received a letter from our original dealer offering to trade us into a new lease. The letter said its a rare "opportunity" to get into a new lease waiving payments on the current lease.
At the time I thought it was the usual marketing mumbo jumbo. Probably still think so. Not sure what this dealership has/had in mind. Not sure if they were going to somehow roll the old payments into the new payments or if there really was some deal via NF.
We had a falling out with this dealership. They're referring to our 1st vehicle. It was totaled (not our fault). We tried to get a new lease from them and they quoted us 50% more for an identical replacement vehicle. They wouldn't return phone calls. Wouldn't check with NF. Meanwhile the biggest area LEAF dealership (Auto Park Nissan) spent weeks pursuing it with NF and was able to get us into a replacement LEAF while continuing our old lease. Worked out really really well for us.
Bottom line, sounds like its certainly possible to have them waive remaining payments.
