After deciding I'm going to drive my car until the wheels fall off, I'd like to ditch the lease and move to traditional financing. I'm looking for lenders that do this.
However, it would probably be a good idea to ask if I should continue paying my lease or jump to traditional financing now.
The lease company says I would owe $11,100 at lease end. I project the value (auction value, not KBB) of the car based off of historical data at around $14,500, give or take $500. I have about 14 months left on the lease.
My guess would be finance it now if I can get a good interest rate. I'm NOT looking to lower payments. I want it paid off ASAP. I'd like to leave this up to the experts to help me decide. If not now, for future reference, who are good lenders for something like this?
