Thanks for letting me know Max! I haven’t asked my dealer. If so, I am willing to negotiate transferring this car privately through other ways.

It’s a tough sale. $406/mo is a lot to pay for a $25k Kia Forte. For that money in the past week, I’m seeing $60k Volvos and Jeeps. I’m not trying to purposely be a Debbie downer, but the LH community is simply cheap, “value driven.”

You will probably have to offer a multi thousand dollar incentive to bring the payment down to the $200s before someone on LH bites. LH’ers expect payments to be less than 1% of MSRP per month before the deal is even remotely enticing.

Thank you very much for the advice Shellzj! :pray:

Yeah unfortunately I think I was in a really unfair deal. This was the first time I ever lease a car in America after graduation and I didn’t know a thing about leasing at that time.

I am willing to offer some money down if someone needs this car. I am always open to negotiation.

Do you no longer need a car?

That’s not legal, so good luck with that.

I rarely drive it these days. I work in NYC so I take train to work and I live with my boyfriend who has a car. It would be great if someone else who needs it want to take it.

Call Kia Finance … they are the ones who own the car and decide whether you can transfer the lease.

You shouldn’t call your dealer unless you specifically want to sell the car and pay for any negative equity. Also try Rodo, Carshop, etc they may have higher offers and thus less negative equity.

Or maybe its easier to sell that car and keep the Kia if you guys are both ok with that.

That’s very helpful! Thank you so much for those solutions. I will try to contact those people to see what they can offer.

Hi @Weiran_Shang ,

Do you still have the car ? I am interested in the car. Let me know if its still available
