I have a 2017 Hyundai SantaFe XL SE, 32K miles. End of lease is coming up buyout price is $19.5K. Should i buy the car and sell it myself OR the hassle doesn’t worth it, just return it? The car is in great shape though.

Try to sell it to CarMax, Carvana, etc. if they offer you more than you owe you can dump it early. Otherwise I’d just turn it in. No sense in buying the car just to sell it, only reason I’d say to buy it out is if you know for certain you want to keep it


I seriously doubt you would be able to sell it for above $19.5k

Need your help/advice! I was rear ended & gave my car to the body shop. The lift gate needs to be replaced. It's been 9 weeks and they have not yet received the part. They don't know when they'll get it in. Additionally, they mentioned that they ordered the part with my VIN & they received the wrong part. (How?) Now they're like we've called xyz vendors and none of them have the part. Is it just me, or are they lying? And their response to follow up is we will keep checking...continue..

1- will I be able to sell it for 20-25k in 3 years?
2- how much should I budget for repair and maintenance and
