I know there are a lot of wanna be accountants that will tell you leasing is for fools, but for the right person (myself) it makes way more sense than a purchase.
Same here. I lease all of my cars. Especially if you like newer vehicles (change less than 5 years) and especially if you live in a state that does not allow the trade-in tax credit (California, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Michigan, Montana, and Virginia), it's a more advantageous way of acquiring a vehicle.

In this environment I would not be turning a lease in, I would be selling it. You can absolutely sell out of a lease to a 3rd party, you do not need to give it back to the dealer. Giving it to the dealer is going to cost you on the repairs they ding you on, and lost profits from not selling in a sellers market.
