Have one more year on a 3 year lease.
Would like to hear experiences from other owners who's lease has expired.
What was your experience at your dealer?
Did you Purchase/Walk away/Lease another/how was your residual factored?

There were no additional fees since we leased another car. However, a few days ago I got a letter from Chrysler financial saying that I owed them $333 for excessive wear - damage to the left rear fender. We are hoping to get that fee waived since they waited a month before inspection.
These are not "normal" cars. Nothing is "normal" about the EV world.
3 year lease return cars are selling at auction for $4500.
In a year, things could be different, but today, if you want to continue to drive a 500e, you lease a new one and hand in your old one in. They waive the $395 lease deposition fee and everyone is happy. Or you could turn in your car and turn around and buy out back (or an identical car) for about $6500.
People who bought a 500e because they "don't rent cars" ended up (with a few exceptions) with a very expensive Fiat.
