It's a Chevy. You'll probably get another 21K on it before something breaks.

Might be time to add a few bucks to the payment every month... like double payments maybe.

if you drive that many miles then don't lease. I had a Toyota Tacoma on a 5 year lease and used up all my miles in 18 months........... a dime a mile after that.

the more disturbing thing about that statement is that rusty bought a chevy........

either drive less or suck it up........ I would definitely double that payment though

I'm glad I don't make car payments. But I do get irratated when they break at the most inconvenient times.
