Leaf Lease Lessons Learned


The title is a tongue twister but it is not as hard as getting a new Nissan Leaf. I thought I was good at getting a new car but I still messed up a bit this time. I was quick and efficient, i.e. I sent out the price inquiry email one day, and next day went to the dealership, did the test drive and got the car. However I was not well prepared, got an unexpected price increase and a couple other surprises. I am sharing everything about getting a Nissan Leaf (either lease or purchase), so that you will do better than me. I hope this video will save you time and money.

It is easier if you make a cash purchase because you only need to the compare out-door price. For electrical vehicle, there are some good reasons to lease, but then there are more variables to compare, thus you need to watch this video. I will talk about what feature/option you should get, how to compare the prices/terms, energy rebates, caveat, VPP pricing etc.

Buying A New Car Compare CR-V – RAV4-Forester-Save Money-Save Time

How do you buy a new car? Following my 5-step process will save you money and time. In this example, we are comparing Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester. Not only did I do my own research, but also I asked each dealer to compare their car with others. In this video, you will hear dealers comparing their cars since I would like to see what they have to say about their competitors.

Notice that there are different ranking systems. I pick Consumer Reports as it keeps a neutral position, not accepting manufacturer’s donations. But even with Consumer Reports different months may have different scores. So in the end, you need to weight the overall impressions, price and safety into consideration.
