My initial thought was that it may end up being cheaper to lease the car here in NY if I were to pay a higher sales tax on a smaller amount of money.
Because of my schedule, I really couldn't lease a car until memorial weekend at the earliest and hope to be in my new apartment by the 3rd week of June.
I guess as a side note. If I leased the car within NY, do I have to register the car in MD? I'll be in MD for only 12 months on a short contract. Where I go from there its still to be determined. I still have a texas drivers license.
Sorry, I'm new to a lot :|
Thanks for the replies. Very helpful so far.

Hi, I just have a quick question and to see if anyone has a good way to solve this legal issue.
I went into a dealership and leased a g37 coupe, the deal was for 12k, but the lease contract said it's for 10k only, but i didn't look at it ( i know, it's my fault) until i got the payment in mail and it stated that the lease was for 10k not 12k. So i called back and talked to the sale person and he was nice enough and said 12k was the deal in his notes and that the financial guy screwed up but unfortunately there is nothing he can do. He said he will put a note in the system stating that our car is actually 12k instead of 10k so when we return the car in 3 years, we won't have to pay for the extra 6k we drive. He couldn't give me that in paper though, and he said he couldn't redo the lease
my question is, is there a way that i can get something like this in writing or have they re do the lease?
i know it's my fault not reading it clearly when signing contract, but i thought the finance guy needs to go over everything on the lease when we sign it, and obviously we would catch this mistake if he actually go over one by one

go up the chain of command. No way i'd settle for a note made in your file by the salesperson. He has no authority and most likely wouldn't even be working there by the end of your lease.

What q said. That gent is blowing smoke. If you can get something in writing you'll be OK. Could well be a classic case of buyer beware. One of many reasons I never lease but not leasing isn't for some people just as leasing is never even an option for me.
#369 of 499 leased camry, accident
Jun 28, 2012 (4:31 pm)
lease agreement says "You are responsible for all damage to the vehicle and for its loss, seizure or theft. you must tell us immediately if any of these events hapen, and cooperate with your insurance company"
accident has a total cost of $960.00, I am having it repaired at the dealer where I purchased the vehicle- same toyota dealer,
Wise, unwise, or unnecessary to report it to the toyota leasing company?

I would report anything that would not fall into the "typical wear and tear" bucket. $960 would be above that threshold.
#371 of 499 Getting out of a lease
Jul 01, 2012 (8:31 pm)
Please advise on the best option to get out of a lease premature....I am only 4 months into a 36 months lease and have changed my mind. Is it better to:
1. deal with my current financial institution to get out of the lease
2. get new dealer to buy me out of the lease
3. use one of the lease swap or carmax service

Absolutely swapping it if you are allowed would be the least painful option. And, really, the only even partly reasonable. The other 2 choices would cost you a small fortune.

Agree that finding someone to assume your lease will be the best on your pocket assuming the lease is economically reasonable. A lot will depend on what you have and the payment vs what someone could walk on the lot and get one. Most that look for lease assumptions (like myself) are looking for a bargain. There's really not many other reasons to do that type of deal.
