|Anyone have experience getting Volkswagen Credit (Audi/Porsche Financial) to accept a write-down buy-out BEFORE end of lease term?|
I have never attempted to do this prior to the end of a lease, although I have heard from others that VW Credit will sometimes work with clients to let them out of a lease early if the the client is purchasing or leasing another (new) VW.
In Canada, I believe that the VW dealers are given the opportunity to purchase vehicles coming back at the scheduled end of the lease from VW Credit for fair market value, regardless of whether that is higher or lower than book value at the end of the lease. I think the idea here is that dealers can then buy high quality cars that they know and have cared for themselves through the term of the lease to stock their used car inventory.
Beyond that - there's not much I can add.
