How far did you go over mileage, and what's the over mileage penalty?
If you're not that far over mileage and don't wanna keep the car, just pay it.
Leasing another car generally won't expunge fines from car condition (mileage, damage, etc.) You may be able to negotiate... Good luck, though.
I've had a lot of friends go through the wringer on leased cars, leasing agencies are usually pretty ruthless on over mileage and under condition.
How far over you went is the important thing, though. If you went so far over you owe them thousands of dollars, buying it is probably your best choice.

Can people still take late model cars to shops that can set the mileage back ? Or are the modern vehicles retaining “too much information” and therefore making it impossible to reset miles traveled ?

Odometer tampering is a felony offense with penalties varying from state to state.
Not a smart idea...

Yea... Especially to avoid fines, then it's fraud and theft, along with being a felony.

Some people buy a beater and park the lease vehicle, others buy out the car or you can just suck it up and pay penalty. Don't mess with the odometer, that is just bad.

Hey just saying , they do things in Brooklyn and other places , that’s all. It was a common practice that I’m sure is getting more difficult. The same risks were at place back then too. But that didn’t stop people. I have nothing to worry about. Saved someone I know lots of money though.
Sorry to suggest criminal activity , just checking to see if folks still hear about it.
Lol that's been just as illegal almost since they started putting odometers in.
To the OP, the only place to get a definitive answer is to ask the people you're leasing from. Don't worry, they won't charge you for asking.
