Car Lease Ending - Negotiate the Buyout Price?
The car is in excellent condition and I have not gone over the mileage limit, so I could walk away if I wanted to.
I wouldn't mind keeping the car - it has been virtually problem-free, but I have doubts over whether it is worth the "residual value" stated in the lease and I do not think the leasing company could make that much if they tried to sell to the dealership, or even worse if they took it to auction.
Is there any way for me to find out the wholesale & market value of my car so I can make a reasonable offer to purchase? Lots of resources available to find these things in the USA, but I haven't found any for Canada...
Anybody ever tried to negotiate a buyout with VW Finance?
