On my lease contract, it mentioned the purchase fee was $300.
OP, make sure you're not overpaying for buying out your car.

can give you an idea. Change the model to whatever matches yours/what you'd like.
When I was near lease end in July 2015, Nissan was offering $6500 off buyout (http://insideevs.com/nissan-announces-u ... ased-leaf/
) on my '13 SV w/both packages. Residual was a nutty
$20,601. So - $6500 + $300 = $14,401
. I could buy an identically equipped used Leaf of about the same age and mileage for $11K to $11.5K back then. No thanks.
Back the car went and I bought a used '13 Leaf SV w/premium only for $9,325 + tax and license (which was a lot more than $15).
