    My wife and I have 3k to put down on a car. My wife works for the sales manager of a mercedes dealership, and he can get a nissan dealership to lease us a fully loaded rogue for 250 per month. For us to get a car @ 250 per month with 3k down financing wise, we'd be looking at a 11 or 12k car.. We are getting a new car because we found out my wife is having a baby, and we need something bigger..

    Should I spend 11-12k on a used car that would last and be big enough (and if so, what car?) OR should we lease a new rogue for 4 years @ 250 per month?

    sounds like a shitty deal when you can buy it for another 8k, but i always think that way about leases.

    Is 250.00 a month all you can afford?

    If so, I'd say yes. If you can afford more, you should be able to buy it for 350 a month with 3k down.

    ok, so after 27 months what have you accomplished besides flushing 7k down the toilet with nothing to show for it?

    350 a month is definitely stretching our budget to the maximum.. we would like to be paying 250 per month ideally...

    the point is we're having a baby, we're going to spend 12k on a car that has 60k miles on it, get a 5 year loan at 250 bucks per month, and at the end of 5 years have a worthless peice of crap with 150k miles.

    well first it depends on what it is cause it might not actually be worth 23k in two years and if it isn't the dealership is not going to sell it to you for 23k..that'd be stupid of them wouldn't it, cause remember you don't own the car, they do.
