My understanding of how leases work is that you can't sell the car until after you have paid the lease off, as you don't currently own it. You can have someone take over the lease, but then you remain responsible for the payments being made. Your best bet is probably to try to turn the car in early. My sympathy is with you.

Terminating a lease early "in most cases" will not relieve you financially of the remaining lease payments.

A good dealer will buy the car from you, sell it and you would be responsible for any costs associated if any should the purchase price be insufficient.

But the auto market is weak for some unknown reason...

I have done it Before it was very simple with a 2009 Prius
after the 2008 Meltdown it hit me hard and i had to sell it was a lease as well
The Buyer Sends a Check to the Lease Company for the payoffgure
The Lease gets Paid off and they send you the title
and they have signed off on it you keep any $over the payoff
in a separate check between you and the buyer it quite easy
Dealers are not buying cars right now and don't pay squat they insult you there ruthless
all the wholesale auctions are closed across the country I have done my Research
even Car Max and Carvana have stopped buying cars until the Crisis is over
Its only a car i will get another at some point no big deal i can Manage
Somebody will buy it and get a good deal over what the dealers charge
The Only thing that stinks this will be the second time in 12 years i have
to do this because of the economy but this time its a lot more serious
and will be a game changer in all our lives forever its just going to be a very bad year
all around for all of us and there will be a new normal not the normal we knew

It's good that you understand the process, which is essentially someone buying the car from NMAC, and hopefully paying you for the opportunity. Now you need to work on the posting a bit: where is the car, and how much are you looking to get for it? I'm considering doing something a little similar, but fairly different: ending my lease a year early, and leasing an SV+ for the same payment as my SL.

Ah well, if you already have a buyer... oh wait?? isn't that why you are here?

Its definitely a buyer's market right now but you are selling and I hope you get what you need but I am afraid it will not be an easy thing to get done right now.

I have been the buyer in situations like this, includig a Leaf, on craigslist. There is a certain amount of trust involved, but it has always worked out and the buyer can actually get a pretty good deal because there is not a straighforward transaction. Contact the leasing agent and ask them how to proceed, they might be of some help?

Thanks for all the Advice everyone
I know how to do it its not my first Rodeo
Its no different than if you had
Monthly 60 month Installment loan
except you pay the extra Fee of $395.00
when you end the lease early just like
if you turn your car in at the end of the lease
on a trade you don't pay that fee because you are releasing
I got into this car by trading a 2019 Loaded SL Even for it
at the Dealer and they let me swap the rims and tires over
from the SL so i have 17"inch wheels on an s model and they
put the 16" wheels on my SL and they sold it quickly
what i wanted to do is trade this S plus for an SV plus
with the Tech Package and winter package but the numbers where
higher per month than i wanted to pay when i got the new Lease for the S plus
My Payment went down so instead of being top heavy I'm in the S Plus Right
Nobody is buying anything right now and the Dealers 2019 Prices are still high
You can get a 2020 for almost the same price as a leftover 2019
They Dropped the Price on the Tech Package $600.00 on 2020 models
and they have the new all around 360 degree Feature Standard
Whatever happens happens I'm not going to get more stressed that i already am
if anybody wants to talk about buying it seriously let me know i figured i try here first
Then move on to other outlets Caravan was going to give me more than i owed on it
Then they stopped buying cars so i missed that boat by a few days

Leftie's point is spot on. Where is the car? What color? Do you have pictures? How much would it cost?

I don't Feel right about posting the Price since I'm not a Paying Member here
