You have to return the Infinity to wherever it's leased from, pay a penalty for early termination of lease and get out of it. That's IF they even let you out. Then go to Lexus dealer and buy or lease a Lexus. It's two entirely separate transactions.


How on Earth do you have a lease on an Infiniti that is OVER 10 years old? Did you mean 2012 instead of 2002??

I meant 2012


Like a regular auto loan, a lease is a binding contract. You can try to get someone to take over your lease (I've seen many ads for this sort of thing over the years). I've never done this sort of thing, but this person would have to have good credit and some incentive from you to make it an attractive proposition for them. Like FordNut said, you can also check into the option of early lease termination and any penalty associated with it. I also have a 2012 Infiniti G37 (The "X" AWD model)...are you looking for better MPG from the Lexus?


Well...were you able to make the switch into the Lexus @ soupy1000??
