Well my lease payment before taxes and additional mileage is 860.77, not sure if LIRacer is quoting his pre-tax payment. If so I could nearly get three 7ers, if not two comfortably. You can get a steep discount off a 2012 leftover. I got 12k off (85k to 73k - 2k down = so 71k) at the end of August, you could get more off now I'd assume. I'm guessing his sticker was somewhere like 150k?

Nissan is a company where you remain liable -

I think that is what ChrisF02 is referring to.
This was Jon's understanding, and it depends if they consider potentially affecting the first owners credit as being liable. I googled it and found this happened to several Audi owners. Not arguing with you - I've never done this, and I'm curious to see which is correct. I'm interested in trading up so I want to use something like SwapALease if it completely clear me from any financial responsibility.
