Buy out my truck mid-lease?

I drive a leased truck and make a payment of $477/month to a bank. My lease expires in 2021. Can I buy out my truck right now and have it refinanced by another bank?

    Of course you "can". Contact the finance company and they will give you figures. It's no biggie.

    An early lease termination is very expensive, especially when you are as far away from the end as you are. Financially, there is no benefit to you ending the lease and refinancing. In fact, it wouldn't be very smart.

    If you're curious, call your lease finance company and ask for your *buyout*, not your *payoff*. Buyout means you want to buy the car; payoff means you want to pay off the lease and return the car.

    READ the contract you signed when you leased the vehicle. It should tell you everything you want to know about buying out the lease.

    Yes. You will have to get a payoff amount from the leasing company and a loan.

    Yes, expect to pay huge penalties.

    Buying upfront would have cost a little more in monthly payments but saved you a lot. Now you have no choice but to finish paying the lease and then buy it. Unless you can cough up a lot of cash now.

    Not unless you have about $4000-7000 to put down. Your payoff or buyout will cost far more than any bank will lend. At lease end, far more likely.

    Call & get a payoff. And then call a bank and see how much they will finance. Likely to be very costly.
