Pros and Cons of an Auto Lease Buyout

The termination date on your auto lease agreement is fast approaching. Where has the time gone? It's been less than 36 months, and it's already time to decide if you want to continue the relationship. You didn't think you could get so attached. Walking away - it's just too much to bear.
