25 cents per mile - so around $5k. Situation changed 2 months after leasing the car, my daily commute was less than 20 miles (and this for well over 5 years) Family issues caused us to move and commute jumped up. I'm the type to pay cash as well, but I wanted to lease as this was my first electric car.How much is your penalty for going over 36k miles? I have a feeling you will get pounded. Did your situation/commute change to cause this or should you have never leased in the first place? I won't lease because I drive 50 miles per day, so easily over 12K per year. Plus I refuse to borrow money - I pay cash for my cars
I think you'll be lucky to get it for $13k, but maybe you'll be able to twist their arm to give you a better deal.
True, I assumed they would automatically have the mileage updated because of Onstar and the maintenance carried out. Ugh.Think about it. They know you're way over mileage and can charge you a DEFINITE $5000 extra mileage charge. Why would they lower their buy out to you, when you devalued the car further then expected?
