    Without knowing sample sizes and distributions, this is completely meaningless data. The vast majority of vehicle lessees continue their leases for the full term, regardless of vehicle.

    Very missleading headline.

    I think the Civic is the bigger story.

    ^I'm disappointed to see a headline like that, which then leads to an article talking about the actual lease times being mid-pack, on Edmunds. Also, this "Survey" is one lease site. On the whole a very poor article, even if some of the information was somewhat interesting.

    This article is crap. Without more details it is totally meaningless and the headline is misleading.

    Gee, I never knew you could opt out of a lease. Of course, I have never had a car lease-- or any type of lease, come to think. My feeling is: You signed a contract, now live up to it and stop whining.

    Edmunds, what a misleading title. The title was clearly meant to imply some sort of commentary on hybrids, that when reading further, is completely false.

    Please retain a shread of decency and either re-title the article, re-write it or just delete it.

    Sigh.
    Don't worry about what other people think. Drive what makes you happy.
  • The title is not misleading, it simply says Volt and Prius owners want out early on the lease. The suprise to that is those buyers more than likely would continue with the lease for the term just because of fuel MPG. The big surprise if they want out early, and I don't blame them. Have you ever driven a Prius, talk about a BORING car to drive. Everyone that leases a car want's out early at some point. Very few people go the term in a lease. Swap-a-lease is very big, but the problem is the individuals that lease the car are probably paying to much and want to pass their mis-fortune onto someone else.
