What is being offered at end of lease?

Tue Jun 20, 2017 12:11 pm

I had heard rumors of good deals on Nissan Leafs at their end of leases in terms of extensions of the lease or purchasing far below to amount stated on their lease contracts. What is being offered for Spark Ev's at end of the lease?

Thanks

My Spark EV at the end of my lease after 3 years @ 12k miles per year had a price tag of something like $16K, but the dealership sold it to me for $10K ($8900 + tax and fees) without much negotiation. I was considering a used Fiat 500e at around $8K and I told the dealership as much. I thought the price was fair considering it's a car I know, I replaced the front tires within the year, it has DCFC, and searches on Carmax yielded similar prices at the time of my purchase.

A co-worker's Spark is coming up for end of lease, the bank offered it to her for $8100, she's thinking of offering $7k. Under 20k miles.

$8100 for 20k miles is not a bad offer.
No harm in bargaining, but she could settle for 8k including tax :)

So can you always bargain at the end of the lease, instead of paying up the pre-printed pricing on your lease?

My lease won't expire for another 2 years.. I wonder how much m 2016 will be worth by that time?! Maybe 5K?

The more 200+mile BEVs are on the market, the less it should be worth.

She just signed the paperwork for a $7000 buyout :-)

I assume she's here in Portland as well? Who was her leaseholder - Bank? / Dealership? / GM Financial? / Other?

I've been doing some research to try and get prepared for an attempt to purchase at a discount from the residual (~$14k? - NO WAY) at the end of our lease.

2016 Black Granite 2LT (for daughter 1)
2016 Electric Blue 1LT (for Wife)
2016 Silver Ice 1LT (for Mom)
2015 Summit White 2LT (for ME - FINALLY!)

Well on my way to collecting the whole set . . .

Yes, Portland. US Bank was the leaseholder. They never really tried to get the full residual.

Any updates for end of lease deals? Our lease doesn't expire until middle of next year, but I am curious to see what is being offered and by which lenders. Our lease is through GM.
