hobbitwoman BS: Leasing a car - Pros & Cons? (10) RE: BS: Leasing a car - Pros & Cons? 05 Aug 03

I leased the car I have now. It seemed like a good idea at the time. But it got nerve-wracking, worrying about every little scratch. Plus, I had restricted mileage and there were times when I wouldn't go somewhere because I'd be over on mileage and that was a royal pain. Finally I just decided I would buy the car at the end of the lease period and quit worrying about it. Then the bank called and offered me a good interest rate to buy it 6 months early, so I did. It probably will wind up costing me more in the long run than if I'd bought it outright at the beginning, but you live and learn, right?

I wouldn't do it again. Next time I will go back to buying cars that are a year old, like I used to. The mileage is low, usually you get the balance of the warranty, if not all of it (here in PA anyway) and you don't suffer the big depreciation of a new car.

Just my experience!
