We are currently leasing and I am not really impressed with the car. Had we bought it, we'd be stuck with it. But it is definitely gone at the end of our lease. We will lease another one again. We also have a second car that we own and is paid off. I think we will always own a car that we will drive into the ground and a nicer car that we can lease. You can usually get a nicer car at a cheaper price by leasing a brand new car.
Another option is trying to purchase the dealer cars. They are "gently used" and have a cheaper price tag.
Side Note: I immediately smile when I see gainerama's new avatar. It's like Psy only came into existence to be your avatar
