Re: So are we all going to end up buying our cars after our leases are up?

There are literally giveaway prices right now. I"m seeing Premiers in the 28K range, LT's in the 24K range. There's still $3750 to be deducted and here in California another $2500. So as I see it Premiers in the very low 20s, LTs in the high teens. Why even consider keeping the old one while that deal still exists?

X2 - I had convinced a relative to buy a Bolt and after wading through the smoke and mirrors of the advertising, he couldn't get a Premier for less than $30K. Only 12% of the US live in CA, so the $2500 isn't there for 88% of us. Still, that $30K is a harsh lick for those of us who bought two years ago and had to pay close to MSRP.

FWIW, the friend ended up buying a Tesla M3 Performance for $50K. The deciding factor for them was AWD, as they are up a ski hill most winter weekends.

Community Chevrolet in Burbank CA.

Still listing in $28's for Premier By waiting $1700 of the possible tax money has been lost (expired Oct 1). Of the discounts, the only one that looks "iffy" is $1K trade in, I don't know what that means. All the rest seem legit

So for California buyers considering keeping their cars after lease end, buying a new replacement looks like a strong possibility instead

I spoke to Community Chevy in Burbank in late July and they were not willing to deal. So I drove all the way down to Orange County to get my best deal:

I bought my MSRP $44,250 Bolt EV Premium from Guaranty Chevy in Santa Ana for $36,500 “out the door” including tax and license on July 31st.

Has HOV Purple stickers, Federal tax credit of $3,750 and California rebate of $2,500 already approved.

Looking online, as you suggest, it appears that Community is now offering the same Loyalty discounts that Guaranty offered last July.
