In a few months I may be looking for a used 2016 SV. Does he have any used 30kwh Leafs yet?

I believe he is strictly selling lease returns (I bought one from him a year ago) so probably not likely to see any 2016s for a while.

Some leased cars do get traded back in early, but probably not many 30kwh Leafs, at least not until Leaf 2 is out.

Leases are for people who like making car payments! Not for people who like owning cars!!

I own BOTH my cars, this new 2013 Leaf and my 2008 Grand Caravan (for everything else!)

It's interesting that this thread got bumped today. I was looking at some of the PlattAuto inventory recently because of an ad I saw on CraigsList.

It's nice to see a dealer who's reaching out to participate in the community. I'm looking to purchase a Leaf within the next few weeks so I'll have to keep them in mind during my search. It's a bit of a drive from Hillsboro but if I can find one that fits my set of requirements that's within my budget I'll make the drive.

Leaf leases are the best way for typical EV drivers to buy a Leaf. I'm kind of tired of explaining why, so someone else can do it this time.

Such as those who don't have a tax load big enough to take advantage of the $7,500 tax credit? Exactly.

and to the Gentleman who bought his 2013 he paid full price for it.. no discounts from Nissan to buyout the lease for much less, in the end I paid less than $16,500 for my 2015 leaf by leasing it and buying it out before the end of the lease. Had I bought it with cash I would not have been able to get the tax credit in full and i don't know any dealerships able to sell a leaf for that price.

I've been trying to figure out if I should lease a new Leaf or purchase a used one. When I called my local dealership they said I would only get the $7,500 tax credit if I purchase a new Leaf, but if I lease one then the dealership gets the credit. Is that not true? I did the math on if I get the $7,500 credit then it makes WAY more sense to lease, but since the dealership told me they get to keep the credit I backed off of the idea.

They are ether lying to steer you away from leasing, or are just misstating the truth: that Nissan's financing arm, NMAC, gets the credit but passes it on in the form of a down payment on the lease.
