My question is should I explore the possibility of turning in my current lease for a new lease for a 2013? Has anybody considered that? or should I just stay with my 2012 lease until it expires in 2016? The penalty might be prohibitive. Any thoughts??
Someone did that earlier (search for a thread about how to get the lease payoff) and felt they would end up too far upside down. If you put very little money down, and/or rolled the inequity of your trade-in into the lease, you can almost be assured that the terms of ending your lease early will not be favorable.
