Trading in ally smart lease to carmax?

36 month Lease finishes up next month on my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee overland. Not interested in another jeep product but have had friends tell me to sell it off to CarMax, however a little research has some thinking Ally won’t let me sell it to anyone? Is this common practice? I read my contract and it doesn’t state anything like that, so I’m confused. Any ideas?

They own the car, they can sell it to whoever (or not). It is odd that they wouldn’t let a dealer buy it.


I believe you can. My Maserati is through Ally and I took my car to CarMax. The process should work.
