Hi,
I'm having a Reimo Weekender conversion done to a Metris Passenger at Peace Vans in Seattle. All I need is the van! I am price sensitive, not at all into haggling and willing to travel. The cheapest I'm finding currently are "Off lease". For example there is a 2016 34,833 miles WD4PG2EE5G3116349 for $19,999.00 on iSeeCars_com from something called OffleaseOnly_com
Is this a safe option or am I asking for trouble?
Thanks!

When I get free I will. apparently the customer pay data system is down and I can only see warranty claims (and color and radio code)

Can't speak to the Metris, but I've purchased two off lease Saabs, both still under factory warranty. Both were great values. I had a middleman in the form of a sales yard where the buyer specialized in Saab and Subaru lease sales. The obvious plus is the higher chance of having a complete maintenance history than a private sale.

Wow, thanks RobbMeeX I wasn't expecting that much info, much appreciated! Also focus805 and vwracer00 for sharing your experience. I'm going to keep looking for one closer and without power sliding doors.

Agreed. The 2 options I didn't get were colormatched doors and power sliders

I got my 2016 with 4,000 miles on www.Cars.com from Mercedes Benz of Sacramento California for $29.900. I'm in Florida and had it sent via car carrier for $1,300. Has start stop, power doors, "leather seats", tow package, and came with Mercedes rubber mats front and back.

Purchased 2018 Worker Passenger from Mercedes Benz of Seattle

I'm generally happy about it, but didn't get the lift gate which is somewhat of a disappointment. It wasn't available without power sliding doors, which I don't want.

I know old post. Ours came from said off lease only, orlando location, and I think we got a **** of a deal on it at 22k with 18k miles. You need to go there and see it in person tho. There was a white one for 21.5k and 36k miles we test drove, it was pretty gross inside, had way less options, and had damage over the rear high stop light. 500 more dollars got us 18k less miles and a much better van overall. They also gave us 2200 for a beat 04 sienna. Keep in mind all of the cars they sell are as is, so make sure the factory warranty is still active.

One thin I missed when buying my van was the steering wheel buttons. I didn't think I would miss them so much (radio controls, trip computer data display, etc.)

It is a nice comfort feature but we opted out for the reason our last Astro (which we still have and use with 236,000 miles) the steering wheel shows wear but doesn't look bad BUT if it were leather it would have been falling apart long, long ago. Our Grand Wagoneer taught us this. We plan to keep the Metris for just as long, so leather wheel is something we did not want for that reason. When we want refinement with leather seats and steering wheels we drive our Yukon XL
