Re: Getting a discount on the Leaf

Mon Sep 13, 2010 8:48 pm

I used Danny at Fontana Nissan, 65 freeway miles from Laguna Hills
in Orange County CA. Good, simple discount off MSRP, as they promised.
They even offered to come pick me up when my LEAF arrives. Nice!

If you want to use lease why not just contact the dealer in advance and ask for a full disclosure of the numbers before you submit your raq? When you request your quote make sure they match and move on. I'd be happy to check anyone's math if they needed it.

They say that the lease rate numbers may change between now and delivery.

What does "MY11" mean?

Re: Getting a discount on the Leaf

[quote="NOEG"]Please use caution when switching at the end from a purchase to a lease. At the point of delivery the dealership is able to markup your money factor to make up for discounted prices. If you turn down their offer you go back to the production list and they get to keep the vehicle on their lot to sell at whatever price they'd like. The whole purpose of doing pricing so early is to protect the client. If you're going to lease get a lease quote...the discounted price will be reflected in the monthly base payment. I am happy to double check your deal for you even if you should choose to go to a different dealership than my own. Integrity is the number one service I can offer.

I agree with Grant on this here. Be very careful. You should have an agreement on all the numbers up front. Lets say your Leaf comes in, you intend to Lease even though your quote was for a cash purchase and you do not agree on the Lease numbers? You would be caught ina very bad situation.

Sorry if I was incorrect.

I thought all Nissan's web site lease $/month numbers were accompanied with "fine print" saying that rates, etc. may change by delivery (and maybe even vary by dealer?) ... I forget, I have not looked at their lease disclaimer info in some time.

Possibly dealers can give final lease figures now, for use in 3 months or so?

Perhaps the Nissan finance rates have been "fixed", to apply for some (what?) period of time?
The whole 2011 model year?
