    Another lifestyle choice that results in most people who lease (not all) effectively reducing their net worth even though a car is an asset of decreasing value. Still, who wants to drive a long paid for 2003 Jetta wagon TDI with 200K+ miles that gets 40+ mpg over a nice new leased BMW?

    A lease is just a rental. Plus you usually have to put down an additional “capital cost reduction” payment to make your monthly rate look more reasonable. The only times that leases make sense is if you can claim that you use the car for work (I think more than 50%) and write off the payments on your taxes.

    Ego, ego, ego. Get one every 3 years. Step right up! Another American Dream. Default on your mortgage, then lease a car.
