Re: Lease End Options

Yeah, my offer was 16.7 k. I was only maybe 10 months into my lease, but had to make room for the model 3 = ).

Re: Lease End Options

You're refund for the sales tax won't be from DMV. You have to go through the CA board of equalization and you basically have 10 days after receiving the title to sell the car. You can't just send a check to Cab West for the payoff either when you get the payoff amount. They make you go through the ...

Re: Lease swap available in San Diego/SoCal

Just sell it through shift or kbb. You have such few miles that you probably have some equity. Check how much it costs to buy out from ford credit vs what the other places are willing to buy it for.

Re: Actual residual value of your FFE...

With taxes, I am at 130 a month in a city that charges 8.25%. Count that 2500 CA rebate in and that would essentially be 60 a month. For the trade in offer, I just did the KBB instant offer. The offer was 13000 instant, but one of the 3 offers connected with KBB offered me 13,700 over the phone. I r...

Re: Actual residual value of your FFE...

The end of lease buyout for the new 2017 FFE is 8,300. What my 2015 FFE was worth after about 34 months of ownership was 13,700 for trade in. What I am saying is that there is a huge discrepancy between estimated residual value after 3 years by the banks when they are making residual value projectio...

Re: Actual residual value of your FFE...

My down payment was the equity of my trade in. I financed during the 0% interest loan offer and still owed about 10900. There was 2800 in equity that was used as the down payment. Of course that will lower the monthly payments as well. Down payment will not lower the residual. That is set by the man...

Actual residual value of your FFE...

I just got my third focus electric today. It was a 2017 and a lease as well. They set the residual at 8300 ish for 10.5k miles. That ridiculously low residual is not what I am actually seeing in the real world. I traded in my 2015 FFE with 24 k miles for 13,700. I also consigned sale of my 2014 FFE ...

Re: Shopping: Ford Focus Electric vs Chevy Spark EV

I live near Carlsbad and currently have 2 FFE's. I also convinced one co-worker to get a Spark EV. I also have a Spark EV that I cosigned with a friend for him to take advance of a gm card topoff offer. I have driven both and like both for different reasons. When getting them new, the FFE is better ...

Re: New Pricing and incentives for 2014 and 2015 FFE's

Just bought a white with cloth seat ffe today. Was originally going to wait until the end of the year, but jumped in today after hearing about the drop. MSRP was 30k, used Costco purchase which was 800 below invoice for this month. 28 k purchase price, add in taxes, doc, etc. with 4 k rebate. On the...
