The inspection fee is required for the dealer to “ground the lease” before selling the vehicle. Bob works at concord Nissan and helped me execute a lease buyout from a guy off of swap a lease.com. Charged me $400 in December 2019.
The lease buyout by third party was not something I could execute in San Diego. The 5/6 Nissan dealerships we have are all under the Mossy family of ownership. They don’t negotiate and are difficult to buy from; even corporate folks will tell you to leave SD if you want a deal.. So- people like me end up in Irvine CA or LA or, in this case, flying to Oakland from San Diego and then driving home with a car.
$17,280 financed with no money out of pocket for a 2018 Leaf S with 18,000 miles. I needed that deal after having a 2014 MB b-class crap out on me after only driving it 52 miles.
