What do you do when you are 175k miles over the lease limit

Thoughts anyone?

The @joeblogs special. Snowy offramp.


I get the feeling this guy might not understand how leases work.

Ha, :fire: or crash into a concrete wall works too!

That far over, just toss a lit match in it and walk away.

He should quit life.

How would the insurance work though? A snowy off-ramp assumes he has gap right?

If there’s no gap, could FCA come after him for the difference? i.e - if insurance says it was worth $4k (if that!) but he’s on the hook for the rest…?

Trade in for Dodge Journey. Then get gap. Then snowy offramp.

Other than insurance fraud, he could just buy out the car, then I dunno, maybe not lease next time? lol

You lending him the $20K?

No lender will give a loan for $20k on a car worth $4k. Considering he has a loan for the engine replacement, he doesn’t have the money to purchase it outright

But the diminished value is largely due to the extreme number of miles, not the year. Some lenders out there (Credit Unions, possibly) will base a loan on the year, make, model and not the miles, especially if you’re buying it out at the end of a lease. If he finds one of those he could potentially get a loan that could cover most or all of the purchase price.

He got a loan to get the engine fixed…I doubt he has 20k lying around…

“Last Time Buyers Program” was legit funny.

98% of the advice on there is ridiculous.
