I leased a brand new 2017 Cmax Energi and the car didn’t work on the first day at home. I had to call towing service to tow it back to the original dealer. Then I wanted to cancel the lease contract , but the manger was kindly offered me to keep it for a few days test driving and if I don’t like , I can swap with another vehicle. Now I decided to go for a certified preowned 2015 C-Max Energi SEL trim level which is priced at 16,999 on dealer now, a lot more expensive than other dealers with same model and year. What should I do ? Should I pretend like first time walking in and renegotiate from beginning for the 2015, or just be upfront show up and tell the salesman about situation and negotiate from there ?

Why not go with the new leased vehicle when they've fixed it?

I like the SEL trim and the silver color better. Plus I like the car with push start Hutton + power lift gate. Also saving a few grand too..

They may know what’s going on already, but it’s really your call.

I do wish you the best of luck in getting a fair/good deal, AND one you are happy with!

One warning about the 15, if it already has a green carpool sticker it will expire January 1, 2019. If it was not issued in 2017 or 2018 you will not be able to renew it for another 3 years.

Can you elaborate more on the green carpool sticker? The ads saying it has HOV lane sticker. What is the rule to renew it?

I'm quoting the DMV page on the topic:

Beginning January 1, 2019, Assembly Bill 544 creates a new decal program to allow certain low emission vehicles to access high-occupancy vehicle lanes, regardless of vehicle occupancy level, for a four-year term. Access to high-occupancy vehicle lanes for vehicles with green and white decals will expire January 1, 2019. Vehicles issued a green or white decal in 2017 or 2018 will be eligible to reapply for a decal in 2019 granting them access to high–occupancy toll lanes until January 1, 2022.

Called DMV this morning and they said this car has not applied for HOV sticker. Does it mean mine will be okay to extend to 2022 after I apply?  btw, this is the car I wanna buy :

Nice; almost identical to mine, at half the mileage. (Maybe I should have bought that one instead of paying off mine this morning? Nah! :)  )  Make sure that the car has had the 2G-to-3G modem upgrade done already, or else My Ford Mobile and the other tracking/charging features won't work. 

(Also, have to say, seeing that nice shiny C-MAX in those images makes me want to get mine detailed!  :)  )

They don't want to negotiate on the preowned...and said it's 18.6K out of the door.. I said no thanks and stayed with the new lease...What a waste of time
