Typically you can get out of the disposition fee if you buy/lease from the dealer you are returning it to. But then you have limited options. But you might as well go test drive some Kia's to see if you like any of them.

Keep in mind that you have to pay sales tax and possibly other fees when you buy the car, so this will cut into any potential "profit". You can however get a quote from some national dealer, I'm drawing a blank on their name, but they have operations in most metro areas and give you a no-commitment (on your part) purchase price.

Also, whether you buy or lease, be sure to use TrueCar.com to make sure you are staying the left hand side of the price curve. Keep in mind that any lease buyout is going to substitute for any discount you might have otherwise been able to negotiate. Be sure to do your homework on incentives (like loyalty or conquest) so you know to negotiate a price a bit above invoice before letting them apply those OEM incentives.
