What are your options? When working it out with a simple calculator, if you lease a car or finance it I end up paying more. In the case of leasing, I don't have ANYTHING left over at the end.Because it immediately loses value.
We just sold our 1992 Previa for $6000, and we bought it at $29000 (regularly $40000). That means we paid roughly $23000 for the use of the van over 10 years.
Or $191.66/mo in total.
There certainly was no lease or financing offer to match that...
