I'll agree to buy it when you have 1 payment left.....
Banks are usually accurate about keeping you locked in a lease til the end.
They run models and sh*t.

So with my luck it'll only be worth $30K when I agreed to pay more.

I know from when I checked on leasing a 86 Fiero it used to be if they specified it was actually worth less that they estimated at the end of the lease the leaser had to either buy the car for the estimated residual or they had to pay the difference between estimated and actual value. But if it was actually worth more that their estimated value you could still buy it for the estimated residual value. It was in the fine print of the lease. I didnt want to rish it so that's one reason I never leased a car.

To the Op, I can understand your scituation, I had purchased a new SRT8 Challenger, at the time side business was great, fast forward 8-months and business is down, and my wife had her hours cut at work. I wasn't upside down my payment was $420.00 a month but I needed to reduce that expense for essentially a toy.

Fact is life changes happen, when we purchase these cars at the time we feel we can afford them. Throw a few financial curveballs in there and that changes. I sold my 392 Hemi and purchased a used much less expensive 5.0, it's still fast, fun to drive, and costs 1/2 of what the 392 was.

Although a $1000.00 month lease payment would be tough to swallow I am sure there is somebody interested, best of luck to you..

But if the end buy is $40K, then you just paid $75K for the car which is a very good deal for the bank.

I think that lease website is a scam though, has no info, ....and the poster only has 1 post.
Swapalease.com is based here in Cincinnati owned by the Joseph Auto Group which owns a number of GM dealers in the Tri-State area including 2 Chevrolet dealers. Definitely not a scam. I'm not a lease guy so I'd never use them though.

With all due respect......the website is a scam.
It doesn't allow you to obtain any info before you register.

I was interested in the car and wanted to contact the seller....but during the reg process the site tried to download malicious software onto my computer without informing me....that is illegal....its actually a federal crime.
My computer aborted the reg process automatically.

To the OP....you can post your lease assumption on Ebay with buyout or assumption. You'll reach a much larger buyer population and people won't think you're a scam artist for trying to promote a website engaged in illegal activity.

...BTW....I really think you could move your car quickly on Ebay.

Swapalease does have an A+ rating with the BBB, so I doubt it's a scam.

So...did Enron, Madoff, Galleon, Arthur Andersen.....all engaged in illegal activity.
All had great ratings even from government regulators. BBB is privately funded as are their ratings. A fraud report can be removed from the BBB with the payment of an additional fee.

I guess you can't even trust the BBB these days to do things right.

I own a used car lot here in Pittsburgh PA. and I can tell you that I leased a 2013 Cadillac Escalade. I did a 2 year lease and write it off on my taxes. I have 18,000 mile a year I can drive. I got it to drive in the winter. For those of you that think leases are bad I think you need to educate yourselves a little about them. They have changed quite a bit. This isn't the 90's... Good luck OP...

You do realize that BBB sells it's ratings. I was approached to join with my side business for a cost of $625.00 they would rate me positive.

I skipping to the end here, folks, so forgive me for the potential redundancy, however....

Do some simple math here, folks. Too many people are crapping in this guy's thread without thinking for even a second.

A $60000 car and a 60 month loan is $1000 a month BEFORE you get to interest, taxes, etc...

Leasing has this car at 1000 a month and you're not obligated to the at beyond 36 months. It'll be worth the buyout at the end, so long as you don't put 25k miles on it a year.

This is a pretty decent deal.

I'm a member at another site and one of the great things is that posting in a BST thread questioning a seller's price is forbidden.

If a person thinks the price is bad they are simply asked to move on to the next thread. Offers are made via PM.

ll I know is that a lease would be the only way I'd be able to buy a ZL1.
