Thank you, canthony. I understand your point. But after only having the car for 5 months I don't think it's unreasonble to try and recoop some of those costs. I guess that's why I laid out the scenario of buying a '13 with the same money, it's still cheaper to take over my lease. I wouldn't eat $8k in costs after driving a car for 5 months. And I dont think you can find a $900 lease today even with that much out of pocket. You're right though, I may have to hang on to it....Thank you!
