There may be one or two options- most likely if you want to unload the car you will have to find someone to "assume" the lease, meaning that person has to be approved (credit) and simply starts making the remaining payments for you. In that case you probably won't be even close to making any money on the deal.

If you find in the contract that you can "purchase outright" the car to terminate the lease early- watch for early termination fees and penalties. In cases where I have known people to attempt this type of termination they NEVER make out very well from a $$$ standpoint. Remember- you aren't even close to owning ANY equity/part of that car if you are leasing. It's not your right to sell the car. If the leasing company wants to they have every right to penalize the crap out of you for breaking your "agreement".

IF you can find a loophole, let us know.

Good luck!
