What happens if I want to end my car lease early?
You can return your car earlier than the lease term; however, be prepared to pay a number of high fees. Be sure to carefully read through the lease contract before signing it to understand all the penalties if the car is returned early. If there is a chance the lease would have to be ended early, you may ant to consider buying instead.
