Not every vehicle will have positive equity that you can turn it in for a profit. Happens to be the used car market right now is hot due to Covid, and you can flip to Vroom/Carvana for a profit. But that's not always the case.
I've been doing it for well over a decade. But requires strategic leasing, yes, and lower mileage.

It all depends on how long you plan on keeping the car and the specific residual/interest/incentives on each car. But generally buying a slightly used car and keeping it for longer makes more financial sense. Teslas are an anomaly because as of now they don't really depreciate over the first few years.
Yup. Covered all that in my post, I think

48k MSRP for 250$ a month for 24/m !?!?

Mind sharing your broker info ? I want to sign right now
Have to be willing to drive a truck
I put it together myself based on leasehacker and had the broker find the car. Since then all the brokers in town have been selling it.

38 gallon tank is a nice bonus if you're playing the supermarket fuel points game.

You would pay more to lease a Tesla than to buy one and resell after 2 years.
Agreed. I was answering the why would anyone lease cars question

Why does anyone please cars
Why does anyone buy or finance is what I've always wondered.
I bought out and sold my last lease, netted 5k. Leased a brand new vehicle, msrp of 48k, for $250 a month, 24 month lease. Rinse and repeat, and worst case scenario give it back and walk away.
Even if you can't make money on the return, your lease payments are so much lower than financing, unless you keep cars for more than 5 years it's a non starter.
Requires some flexibility in what you'll drive, I have one vehicle (15 passenger van) that I financed because the payments were about the same, and I plan on keeping it for a long time, and made customizations

It's not just CA. Same for all the southern border states.
Source for this? You're saying people are coming over for treatment? Or people here already?

Was hoping that's not the issue!
 Tried cleaning with an alcohol pad as I see many people did that for the lines printing on the paper.
The lines is dirt on the 'screen'. Easy to fix. Faded, or too much toner is usually a drum issue. If you get lucky a generic works, if not you can sometimes get a new printer for cheaper than the drum

Need a new drum. Try generic, might get lucky
