First, you need to find out how many payments are left. Then You then need to call the lease company and see what your payout is. This is the price you would pay if you were to buy the car from the lease company plus the rest of your payments. Then see what the vehicle is worth for retail sale. If the total is close to the retail sale or less you can get a loan from a bank and either keep the vehicle or sell it to pay the loan off. If it's a new lease it is not really feasable to get rid of it without penalties unless your state has the 3-day contract clause where you have 3 days to null a contract. The null of a contract is tricky and a huge pain to do but it can be done without hurting your credit rating. The only other way if it's a new lease and the car is always having problems you can complain to the lease company that the vehicle is defective and they will (on rare occasions) cancel the lease and let you return the car to the dealership or offer to replace the vehicle with a new one. If they are a "people" leasing company they will do it but the chances are very very slim.
