GOOD CREDIT IS A MUST. You must qualify for the lease with Toyota. Message me if you have any questions!


I think this belongs in “Worst leases you’ve seen”, effective payment is misleading, you’re asking for a down payment


I don’t think the hybrids ever really leased well so this might actually not be all that bad. I’m sure there’s any amount of people (not LH’ers obviously) that are paying significantly more.

Just curious OP, but why do you want to get rid of it so soon?

It was my first time leasing. I didn’t think it was that bad.

I’m looking to lease a Tesla Model 3 instead. Made a quick decision and now have buyers remorse. Still a great car though.

Your effective payment by my math is $436/mo, that’s pretty terrible.

Maybe @Bostoncarconcierge can chime in on this.

Either way, GLWT!

I also can’t find your post about this deal, ie lease sheet etc :roll_eyes:

Yeah, I didn’t consult anyone before signing. Learning a lesson here.

You’re up against X3’s on this forum at that effective payment.

If you want to recoup upfront money, you’ll have better luck on SAL.

There’s $430 all-in X3’s that aren’t stripper models to be had?

You’re gonna have an even bigger buyers remorse if you get a model 3, barely driving it, but paying twice as much.


If you don’t ask for DAS, this car will fly … Why should someone pay YOU back the original downpayment sir and an extra 200 to TFS for transfer.? Are you also selling etching and key insurance by any chance?


Since lease is only 5 months in, I don’t want to lose out on the original down. And you’re right. I shouldn’t ask for all of it back. I will update the post.

Pay swapalease $300. You’ll get rid of this fast and likely get your down money back. People on this forum would likely rather get a gas model xle for $300/mo with just msds down. Hybrids aren’t worth the gas savings.

Swapalease has a completely different clientele then leasehackr.


Thanks for the advice! I’ll try there.

They also get the buyer approved and do the paperwork so it’s a very easy process. I’ve swapped 5 vehicles on there and they all sold within a week

No one needs to pay more than $100 to list on SAL

It’s $100 for dealer ads, $500 for personal adds. They will drop the $500 to $300 though. How can you get $100 personals? That would be awesome

It’s not an ad. The OP would just be listing their car.
