My past 2 leases that I have had have been with VW Credit. My first lease I had no missed or late payments at all....On my second lease, 6 months into the lease, I was diagnosed with Cancer, and was unable to make payments on time, due to growing health care bills. Once I was finished with Chemotherapy, I was able to make regular on time payments for the duration of the lease. I am looking to lease another car, but am worried about the late payments on my credit report. I wrote VW Credit a GW letter, asking them if they would be so kind as to help me with a few payments, but no luck. I got in the mail, a statement of the payments that I made to VW with the dates and the amounts. I NEED A NEW CAR ASAP......What should I do? Was thinking about a Toyota, Kia or Hyundai!!!!! HELP!!!!!

Have you approached VW. If you ultimately brought it current and made all the remaining payments, they might be forgiving?
Is there a reason you need to lease instead of buying?
