Leasing is objectively better unless you're buying an older car that you can wrench and keep it running.

    Dealerships wouldn't offer you a lease if they made less money on it than simply selling the car.

    Leasing is literally the worst way to get a car. Like the other guy says, they wouldn't do it if they didn't make money off it. Lease pricing is calculated so that you pay more than the car depreciates in 3 years. A new Elantra is about 24k. Leasing it for 3 years runs you 10k. Then the dealer sells it for 18k. You could instead just buy it and sell it yourself or trade it in and save about 4k.

      NTA but a lease also covers all mechanical issues, recalls and maintenance of the car which is something (you) have to do if you buy a car and we all know mechanics are fricking scammers.

        Literally not true.
        >Lessee is also responsible for insurance, maintenance, repairs, $.20 per mile over 10,000 miles/year, excess wear, and a $400 disposition fee.
        It's under warranty either way so there's not really a lot of maintenance and repairs to cover, but you're paying for things like oil changes and brake pads or any other wearable item.

      This is not entirely true. Leasing is all about convenience. You pay a (sometimes significant) premium on the convenience of not needing to worry about stuff like selling it or maintaining it, and then you can move on with your life. Financially it's never going to be worthwhile though unless your time is more valuable (and no if you're on DA your time is not valuable)

        There's no less worry involved in leasing than there is in financing and trading in. Leasing is only a valid choice when you literally can not afford to pay more than $200 a month. Assuming the same down payment, the difference between leasing for 36 months and financing for 60 is only $125 in the case of the Elantra. You're paying the same insurance, the same maintenance, the same everything, and then going back to the dealership and trading it in. No need to even worry about selling third party. If you lease, you pay about 3500 a year, if you finance then it's 2200.
        Or if you just have the doggest shit credit score and even with in house financing, the best you can get is like 15%. Then it may make sense to lease while you build your credit score.

          You literally pay less on a lease than buying a car, these are depreciating assets that will break no matter what after certain amount of years, you cannot buy another car right away to fix the problem but you can get a new car through the lease every 3 years and let another homosexual take the hit.

            Exactly what numbers are you using to come to this conclusion? Have you any statistics or research or are you forming opinions based purely on how you feel...

    Why would you get a new car when buying used ones is way better, even if the car is like a year old it's way cheaper buying it new or leasing it.

    When you lease a car, you still take liability for the residual value at the end of it. It's built into your payments
    The lessor isn't taking a financial hit for you...
    In Australia, non business leases don't even sell the car for you, you have to do that and pay the balloon payment

    You poor people think buying a car means taking a loan. If you can not buy the car outright you can not afford it then and should keep driving the old civic instead. Worst financial decision ever to take a loan or a lease for a car.

      >wasting cash on a depreciating asset instead of investing it and letting your money work for you
      this is the true poor mindset. avg interest rate is only 6-7%. if you can't at least match that then you'll literally never make it. hell even if you only got a roi that matches the loan apr, you still come out ahead due to inflation. paying cash for a car is the dumbest possible way to buy it.

        this is an even truer poor mindset. the real redpill is you will never be rich, you are fricked from the beginning, if you are not inside then your outside, get it?

          Now you're moving the goalposts. No one is saying "don't buy the car". Buy the car. Get the things you want to get. But get them in the smartest way possible. You could waste 30 grand on a car and it's worth 15 in 5 years. Congratulations you just flushed 15k down the toilet. Or, you could get the same car, make the minimum down payment, invest the rest, and sure you end up paying about 35k for your 30k car, but your investment has made 43k at the same time.
          So between losing $15000 and earning $12000, which one is truly smarter?

    Actual, legitimate moronation. Take the money you would have spent renting via lease and buy a quality used vehicle instead; then you don't deal with depreciation AND you get to own it.
