What are my options for turning in a car at the end of lease that only has 3k miles. I'd like to lease a new car. I feel like the car is worth more that the buyout amount because of the low miles. Is there anyway I can use that additional value as a down payment or something?

I was thinking I could buy the car and then turn around and trade it in at the higher value.

    Try selling the car to Carmax, Carvana, or Vroom, if you have those available in your area. It may be worth more than the buyout, and you could realize some equity, since you have low miles.

    Then, go shop for whatever you want.

    Could I get any money from the dealer when I turn the car in towards another car?

    You could.. But, without an independent 3rd party bid for the vehicle, you won't know if you are getting full value.
