Yep, its time for a new car. I have not leased in 15 years, and was considering this round of cars to be leased! things to consider: Do we have a business to write off the monthly payment? no The lease payment is almost 1/2 the loan payment on a short 2-3 year lease, a little more for longer of course. Do we drive less than 12,000 miles per year / per vehicle? yes Do we have great credit to secure the best lease rates? yes At the end of the lease we have nothing, and now your stuck in a leasing trap, because you have no auto equity to use towards the next vehicle. Do we normally keep vehicles short amounts of time? I do (this is the longest I have ever kept a car, 5 years. I would prefer 3-4 years!) ! Wife does not! her car is 9 years old and thats the one we would be replacing first. She's Ok with keeping it, its paid off and runs great, but for how long??? It is 9 years old! Plus she has 2500 - 5000 depending on how we get rid of her car, So what to do???? Anybody else leasing here? Would love to hear your point of view.
