that's not true, I bought out my lease, I paid $16,500 for my car, it was the fair market value when I bought it out. For about 6 months after that, I received letters from the dealer and from GM where they were talking about the high demand for my 2008 GT. I was offered as much as $8,500 for my car from the dealer If I wanted to sell it to them, so what is that, $24,500 for my car that I paid $16,500 to buy out my lease ???. I liked my car too much to get rid of it. Oh by the way my car is dark grey and I have 65,000 on it.
