Cancel lease before delivery?
Do any of you guys know if it is possible to cancel a lease without penalty before taking delivery?

I ordered an Overland HEMI w/ Saddle 2 months ago and still have no idea when my truck might get delivered (still no D1 status). Need a car now and thinking about switching to a different make of vehicle. I already paid the origination fee and first month payment. Can I pull out and get my money back?

Hoping someone here has experience with this!

Possibly, if the bank hasn't finalized the paperwork and you didn't sign anything yet.

The dealership should have never taken that money up front on a lease with no car to take delivery of. Whatever the lease term is you are less 2+ months of vehicle use. So, in my opinion, you are overpaying for the lease term by 2+ months.

However, if you do try to pull out, they might offer you some attractive incentives on another vehicle just to keep your business.

Is it a factory build (order)?... A factory build can take up to 2 months so I don't understand how you already paid the first month and didn't take delivery. That being said the dealer should have only taken a deposit to get the car, not a "payment" or any other fee for that matter.

First month payment should only be made at contract inception which can't be done with out a VIN#, if all you made was a deposit it should be refundable if the car still isn't available. So to answer the question "is it possible to cancel a lease before taking delivery" the answer is you aren't leasing anything yet because there is no car. Good luck,,,,,,,,,,,,

Thanks for your advice guys. Just to close the loop, it was indeed a deposit and is refundable. So that's all good. Thanks again for your responses!
