Re: Unfortunately Bolt is still a compliance car from GM

You sell your used car, someone buys your used car. The benefits from the leased vehicle get passed on to the next owner and then the next owner until the car is used up. Irrelevant if you keep it 10 years or 3 people keep it a total of 10 years. In terms of global warming / global rise in CO2, it'...

Re: Unfortunately Bolt is still a compliance car from GM

FYI, what you are describing here is Reuse, not Recycling. Reuse is taking a perfectly good, functioning car, and continuing to use it as a car under someone else's ownership. Recycling is breaking down that car into its raw materials and building something new with those materials instead of virgi...

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

Yes, ideally (for the leasing company) the residual would equal the real world value at the end of the lease. If the residual is higher than market value at the end, it's advantageous for the lesee because he paid for less car than he used. If it's lower, then it's also advantageous because the les...

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

Thanks. Those Premiere residuals are going to have to be discounted, unless GM just wants to take the cars back and resell them. Can some folks post their LT residuals? I think those might be more marginally acceptable. You want the residual to be as high as possible. High residuals are what make l...

Re: Unfortunately Bolt is still a compliance car from GM

It is faulty logic to think that when a 3 yr lease is up the car disappears. Leasing is like renting. If you rent a car from Avis for a week you aren't causing any more damage to the environment than if you kept the car after the week was up. You sell your used car, someone buys your used car.
