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.
