So i discovered Leasetrader.com today and was perusing it for shits and giggles, when i came across this gem.

Apparently, you can take over this guys lease for the final 8 months at a cost of $1,495/month. How could this be so high? 36 payments would equal almost $54k and assuming he put $6-7k down, means he basically paid it off. Its only a $65k car after all.

Looking at the MB website, you can lease a 2018 with the same terms for $7,370 down and payments of $1,185.

He had to have rolled something over into this, right?

Side note: the 2015s are retailing for about $55k used, so you could buy one outright for a payment 50% lower.
