Well, LeasePlan called today to say Honda will not repair the car after my hitting a deer and crumpling the front bumper and hood and they are going to send a flatbed to come pick it up.
I assume I will get a statement of lease termination to take to DMV with my plates. The person who called me didn't know the procedure, so if anyone has any experience, please reply.

I almost made it to the full 6 years! About 68,000 miles of awesome driving. The car still smells new inside. I'll miss it, although as I mentioned in another post, the telematics unit has been acting up again and it's close to needing struts, so all in all . . . .

Thanks, everyone, for all of the helpful comments and feedback.

Mike, please feel free to report my car's demise on the Facebook page. I'll sort out my finances soon and head to my local Hyundai dealer to see about leasing an Ioniq.

Best of luck to all of you remaining FEV drivers!

Drew

Thanks Drew, that is the result I expected. Good luck with your next EV. Please follow up here with the deal you were able to get on an Ioniq electric. I might end up in an Ioniq as well. Been checking out Chevy Bolt EV deals this week as some dealers are really marking them down. Chevy's fed tax credit gets cut in half at the end of the month. Man the seats in the LT base model are pretty lame though.

My local dealers also offering steep discounts on the Bolt, but the interior feels cheap and those front seats!

I'm very close to buying a Bolt and as I drove my Fit EV to work this morning, I thought about how great the front seats are. If only I had a pair that I could modify and swap into the Bolt. Wait! Your car is the perfect donor! How much do you want for them. LOL

Haha! Come and get 'em! I'll just tell LeasePlan they were there last time I looked. :)

Did you take any pics of the hauler towing your car away Drew?

We need closure! :D
