Car leasing is great.I can think of no other way of driving a car.
But,one of the downsides is when life happens and we suffer damages and/or go way over the mileage allotment.
OK… I need your help Markus!After reading your "How to turn end-of-lease cars into extra cash",it sounds like I'm pretty screwed with my current 2016 Lincoln MXK Select lease.When we first got the lease,my wife worked 5 min from our house.A month later she switched jobs and has been putting on 40+ miles per day on her SUV.Therefore,she's already at 52,000 miles and we still have 4 months left on the lease!The total amount of mileage allowed is 39,015.
Here are the details:
39-month lease (ends Aug 31st,2019 – 4 payments left)
Payments: $569 per mon.
Mileage Allowed: 39,015
Actual Mileage: 52,000
Cost of Overage: .20 per mile
Buy Out Option: $27,332.60
What is the best option for me that would cost the least amount of money?We've been leasing cars forever and never ran into a situation like this.This sucks!
Also… She just rubbed a curb and took a chunk out of the side wall of one of her tires.So I need to get a new one.If I'm handing the care back into Lincoln,do I have to replace the tire with the same exact brand and model number?If not,I'll guy by a $89 tire instead of spending $230 on the OEM one.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!Thanks!
