I talked to Chevy and I guess the shortest lease term they do is two years with what I'm trying to do I'm sure I'll qualify for a Chevy Cruze or a smaller car... I don't want to do a lease but I know in 2 years my credit can jump up very high then I can just give the car back...
Would it make sense to just keep making payments and have the Impala paid off in about 15 months or getting to a brand new car for 24 months and just turn the car back in and walk free and clear? Credit karma said my score is 660 Equifax and 636 TransUnion.
