Mine is not on lease, its my mobility car but a cracking car that is brilliant for my needs. I find it very good on fuel too x
Ooh erm, suv type, manual, 10k to 15k a CB year so mpg great or electrical, budget say 10-15k, features erm dunno really, just best bang for buck.
The appeal is getting to drive a brand new car with the latest technology, no repair costs to worry about the ability to hand it back at the end without having to worry about trying to sell it on. Owning a 10 year old used car is almost always going to work out better financially than a lease, unless you have a major engine failure but the comparison can only be done in terms of financial. Every other comparison is apples and oranges. Most people get a lease because they want a car which is going to cost them a set cost per month without having to be concerned about repairs. We own a new car and a 12 year old one, we save £50 per month for the used one to cover any repairs it needs which we don’t for the new one. Wear and tear is the same unless you get a short lease but if I stepped out of the house each morning and had the choice, I would pick our new car every single day of the week.
Still don’t get the appeal in leasing a car. I know loads of people do but all that expense with nothing to show for it at the end? I would much rather buy a cheaper car, pay the same cost per month and at least have a car at the end of it. Keep that car and run it to the ground and then buy a new one I need to. Or save up in the years after the car is paid off so I have a good chunk of money to ether buy a second hand car either outright or with a very small loan to pay off the remaining balance. Maybe just me though as I’m currently driving a 10 year old car that’s only done about 22k and bought it for a steal as it’s old and therefore not desirable to a lot of people. Even though it done nothing but the weekly shop for the first 9 years of its life. I will keep it until it isn’t worth repairing. I do quite fancy a hybrid at some point but they are still too pricey for my liking. I could probably afford it if I really wanted but don’t see the point in wasting all that money when I have a perfectly good car at the moment.
Nice to see some good comments lately. I'm very tempted. Think I'll test drive this weekend. So it's not a death trap when overtaking either lol???
