Anyone consider doing this?
It could be a way of getting a very short term lease on a fairly new car, withouth having to pay the initial down payment. Some leaseholders even give you a cash incentive to take over the lease.
Essentially what you do is take over the remaining lease payments till the end of the lease, with the same rights and responsibilities as the original lease holder. You can either return the car or buy it outright at the end.
I thought about this but not sure if this is really popular way of "test driving" a car for a short period of time without any obligations. I've seen some lease take overs for as short as 4 months, some as long as 2 years or more.
