Cincinnati, Ohio December 4, 2008, the pioneer of online automotive lease transferring announces it's most searched leased vehicles of 2008 as the year draws to a close. Chief Executive Officer, Ronald Joseph Jr. noted that, "The list is based on user search activity through November and then extrapolated through the end of December to complete the picture."

Company officials stated it was not a surprise to see a high concentration of luxury vehicles upon review of the 2008 leased vehicle search results. This is due in large part to a much greater lease penetration amongst luxury brands in contrast to non-luxury name plates. However, a shift was evident in user preferences when comparing the end of year data to earlier 2008 results best illustrated by SUVs. First quarter 2008 results had strong showings by several large SUVs which lost favor as gas prices increased through spring and summer months.
