Yep like I’ve said. 90% of salesperson will not know, 85% of sale managers will not know. Or give false infoCompletely agree! I've bought a lot of cars over the past 20 years, and by far, the absolute worst car buying experience for me has been with Kia salespeople. For example, one Kia salesperson tried to tell me that I could not do the "lease buyout trick," and that I was trying to "game the system." I was like, "Um, ok, is there some sort of rule that states I cannot buy out my lease immediately?" He said, "That doesn't seem right to me, and I'm pretty sure that's against the rules, otherwise everyone would do that!" I was like, "Um, ok dude, sure." I went to the finance guy, and he said, "Of course you can buy out the lease. Most people do not know about this loophole, or they cannot afford to buy out the lease." Hysterical!
also lease buyout does not need to pay all in cash.
Can get a traditional car loan, through a bank or credit union
