Not always. Car manufactures ocasdionally provide amazing lease promotions through inflated residuals and allowing stacking of promotions and rebates on leases. I know people that have leased decent 20k cars for under $100 a month  inclusive of fees. I'm paying 20% of msrp for a 3/36 lease on a sports sedan, when kbb on his car is around 55-60% after 3 years.

What about Insurance though? My brother tells me he pays $90 a month in NYC on his used car because he doesn't have to put full coverage.. Compare this to $250 a month paid by leasers..

Please don't buy a Honda cr-v.  The motor goes after a year or two.  There must be way better value to buy other small suv's
Since when is a Honda know to have bad motors? Also he is covered by warranty if something would happen so soon.

LOL, one car of the tens/hundreds of thousands produced does not mean much

You didnít say you specifically had a problem with your car. It sounded like you were saying they are known to have problems.

I can't talk for other but in my experience with a CRV 2015, the first year it drove nice, by the 3rd year its pretty bad.

Only one way to find out - send an email to five other dealers asking them to beat the quote. If they can't, you know it's a good price

I'm already doing that, most of the dealerships are playing games, so trying to see if anyone has bought a CR-V recently, to get a picture of where I'm at in the negotiations game.

This is part of what makes car buying so confusing. The CR-V is treated like the Messiah by all the big car reviewers, yet here you are saying that it's bad...
