Hey Preston,

You may want to try SAL. That payment is pretty high for the people here to bite relative to the car.

Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve looked into lease trader and thought it was gimmicky. Not a lot of positive reviews so I’m a little apprehensive to try SAL but will definitely look into it. Thanks!

I’ve never used it but it sounds like even some people here have a good experience with SAL.

Good luck!
