Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Once you sign a contract, the law says you are bound by the terms of that contract you are signed. So, it was your responsibility to make sure all debts were paid off here and if you still owe on a lease, you have to make good on that agreement as well. The dealer legally has a written contract signed by you, so they do not have to let you out of that contract and you would need to continue to have to negotiate some acceptable resolution you can agree upon with them to resolve this matter.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
