Some questions... do you plan to lease another vehicle? Will it be another Toyota? Will you be comfortable buying a new car from that same dealer? The reason for these questions is....well, if you can go into the dealership and just be "looking". Start slowly looking at the model you really want. When the sales person approaches let them know you are interested. They will ask you the standard question..."what is holding you back from buying this car today?"....

bingo.

You sadly confide in him/her about your seven months remaining...what a bummer....hmmmm....maybe, just maybe they will fall all over themselves helping you to break that contract early so that you can move into the new vehicle that day.....

this of course only works if you have not been living in the dealership drooling over the new car and letting them know what your problem is...it would only work if you let them feel like they are truly working the deal..

---maybe this strategy will work for you? good luck either way.
