My Honda Accord lease is up in October of 2008, I would like to get a Toyota Prius as soon as I can. Is there any way to turn in my car earlier without charges so that I can buy the Prius?
Im struggling trying to find out which car to buy: My husband's fully loaded 2007 Ford Explorer XLT (50/k miles) for $15,100 or buy a 2002 BMW 525i with 60,000 miles for $12,500. Since I only drive 3,800 miles a year, I also have considered the Toyota Sequoia (2002 for 12,500) since they are dealing right now on those.
