TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW LEASE MATH
there are two terms to consider, they are Money Factor and Residual. I'm not going to go through the 10 page explanation of leasing, but even though you can still get 0% financing on a purchase, a 1% lease rate (which is fair) will still be cheaper......The benefit is if you are always making payments (you buy a car every couple years) leasing will save you money.
YOU CAN DECIDE THE MILEAGE ALLOWANCE....too, whether it 5K, 10K, 15k,18K 185967K (those are all per year too, which is of course cumulative). Your payment goes up the more mileage you want, but it is much cheaper than paying at the end.
Basically, a $400.00 lease payment is like a $550.00 finance payment (that is about a lease payment/finance payment of a 30K car).
