Viktor, did you lease you car through NMAC (your car registration may possibly show Nissan-Infiniti LT as the lessor)?
If so, be advised that even if you can find someone to take over your lease, NMAC will still hold you responsible for the payments, even if NMAC approves
the new lessee for your car.
The only early way out of the contract (that isn't illegal) that truly leaves you free and clear is to convert the lease into a purchase and have someone buy the car for what NMAC wants. On a car as new as yours, it will basically be the Adjusted Capitalized Cost (purchase price, minus any cash down payment and any incentives such as the $7500 Federal rebate, and any manufacturer and/or dealer incentives), minus perhaps any payments you already made.
