I was presented with a new US Bank Lease End Option and curious to get thoughts on what you would do.
Current Lease - 2019 Toyota Highlander XLE
Current Payment - $350
Current Mileage - 32,000
Final Payment Made on 2/7
Lease End Options:
-My Buyout Price - $26,568
-Dealer Price w/ New US Bank lease - $26,645
-Dealer/Carvana Price - $33,217
I can likely get around $32k for the car, so not really positive equity unless I bought and resold or went into a new US Bank Lease
My current plan was to extend the lease for up to 6 months and hope the market got better for leasing. However, a new option was presented to me:
NEW Option - They offered me a curbside return where if I want to by March 3, they will pick up the car at my house, waive and excess wear and tear, waive termination fee and REFUND my last 3 payments
So that is my conundrum - do I extend the lease or quickly look for something new. Was eyeing a Jeep GC - L but that would be still over $500 a month with tax and there just still aren’t great deals out there.
What would you do?? Appreciate the feedback.
