I leased from new a 2011 CTS Coupe, Thunder Gray, Performance Collection Package. I have to return the car to the dealer the 2nd week of July when the lease runs out. I'm in a NYC borough, nearer to central NJ. Buyout on the car is around $27,000. Financing of the lease was through Ally.
Car will have maybe 8k miles on it when I go to return it, probably less. Car is like new, no accidents, maturely driven, never abused. If you are interested, maybe I can tell Ally you're a friend of mine who wants to buy out the car, you work it out with Ally, and pay me $1,000 cash for setting this up. If you want the car this week, it's $1,600 cash to me as I have one payment left on the lease.
If you are local and want to see the car let me know. I'm not shipping it, or driving it to you. I have no issue returning it to the dealer, it just would be a shame to give back to the dealer a pristine, low mileage car to resell for $35k when someone who needs it can pick it up now at a better price.
I'm not sure what Ally will do, but if you are interested I will make the call to find out.
