In total agreement until you used the word ‘investment’. Buying a depreciating asset is never an investment, and people sourcing themselves a car aren’t making themselves an investment.
Blah blah blah
Killing the planet 1 mile at a time.. Or perhaps 0 miles and sat chugging away at traffic lights and in congested UK roads spewing out poisonous fumes. 30 million vehicles on the roads.. Many with 1 person sat in them at a time. Lease an EV, a Phev or a hybrid.. At least when the lease is done it will continue to do less harm to the planet.. Short lease on fire powered cars will soon be a thing of the past..
No one buying this gives a hoot about your Audi a6, skoda Octavia, VW polo or anything else you care to mention. As a new grand Cherokee owner, this isnt a bad deal. I'm paying about the same and it only does about 3k per year...good deal for a brand new model and car this size for those of us needing a tow vehicle for 3.5t Heat added
Just a reminder for those who don't understand one reason why lease deals are voted cold"I took delivery of a (list price) £49k Audi A6 Avant in April. Over the next 24 months it will cost me £8,370 in total " and OPs £10,580: what you are actually paying for is how much money the car loses during the term, ie depreciation. If you run a business, that makes a profit then you can offset your lease payments against your profit/tax. If you don't run a business it would be more sensible to buy a nearly new Car that has already taken the off shop front hit of losing money. Save up or take a loan for to buy nearly new, as a keep up with the Jones new car is nearly the worst investment you can make ! ;(
