    All, I'm interested in your advice. I have a 2015 DCLB TRD Sport 4x4, with 23,xxx miles (ZERO rust underneath) that the lease is soon ending on, and I planned to purchase out-right before I knew we'd be expecting our 2nd child; thus, with a 2nd child now here I needed more interior space & bought a 200 series land cruiser.

    Before attempting to sell on my own, or returning it to the dealer I thought I'd reach out to you folks.

    What would you do? Note the pay-by mid-summer will be is $28,xxx; what's the approximate market value?

    The color is Silver Sky Metallic with graphite interior.

    It's in excellent condition - never off-roaded;

    No dings/dents/scratches, and NO at all rust;

    New Cooper Discover AT3 tires;

    WeatherTech mats front/back;

    Tow package, etc.;

    Truck needs nothing - it's perfect albeit a bit small for my needs.

    First off, congrats on the new one on the way!

    As to the turn in vs sell, also factor the sales tax you will have to pay purchasing. Say you are buying for $28,500, at a 10% tax rate, you are out the door at $31,350 plus whatever fees they throw on top for title transfer. Local 2015 sports are listing for $32k-33k, meaning the purchase price will be less. That does not leave much room to turn a profit for the headache involved vs just turning it in and being done with it. I would just turn it in.

    If you just sold it you would not be responsible for taxes. Just call and find out what the cost will be to buy the truck outright. If that cost is less than you can get for it then sell it. Look on kbb.com for pricing and go from there.
