    269/mo is advertised in the paper.

    that's the base model (auto) with like 4000 down

    to go to the higher end model with air and moonroof and 5000 down it's just under 400/mo

    I can get a base maxima for that price


    what do you think?

    1st explain what is going on between you and Sonic with those avatars/locations :hsugh: :mamoru: :hsugh:

    then
    you're so much better off buying :hs: same exact car, 2002-03 with a little miles on it would be 12-16 grand. put some $ down and make payments, in the end you'll own the car and you could still sell it and you'll lose much, much less $ than on a lease. It'll be the same exact car. And you don't have to be worried about going over your given milage or any little dings or dents which the dealer will rape you for when you bring the car back.

    those numbers don't add up.
    A base maxima MSRP is about 27500. Figure a 53 % residual on a 3 year / 36,000 mile lease. 5% interest / .002 money factor and let's say you get the car for 25000.

    that would come out to about $390 / month, with tax, and $0 down other than initial fees. With $5000 down you'd be closer to $250 / month for 36 months.

    same thing with the Altima :ugh: using those figures, i get $285/month with tax, 36 onths, $0 down. You should call the dealership and find out exactly what residual value and money factor they are using to figure out those numbers.

    Or better yet, wait till you can afford the car through a purchase, instead of leasing your way to a car that's too expensive.

    I'll be the first to admit that this purchase wasn't smart, at all. :p The fact remains, however, that it serves the purpose. :o

    In Australia leasing is mainly done for fleet buyers (10+ cars) companies who want to turn over cars every couple of years or so.

    Cost effective for them.

    But what benefit does it give a average American ? seems like you are paying through the arse and end up with nothing to show.

    you're exactly right, it serves no real financial benefit. There are downsides to every purchase scenario, but leasing is just a fancy way of renting a car, IMO.
