I know a lot about airlines/hotels but almost nothing about car buying/ leases. Can someone help to explain to me what is better? I plan to use the car for years to come and I know that Rebbe advises to buy a brand new car from a previous year. i care very little about brand/model etc. It seems with 0-1.9% it might be a good deal (still too high for me if I choose a bigger car). Lease, if its true @ $135-150 a month seems a better deal (like 50% off, but you don't keep the car). Is there something I miss here? Is there a big payment up front? Very restricted terms that is easy to violate? Any pointers?

It comes out to around $177 a month plus the $1400 due at signing. You don't get unlimited miles and you don't walk out with anything after you give them $8-10k

i see. So buying, if you can afford it, is always a better deal, right?

don't look at leasing as being cheaper. Yes buying is a better deal. Also if you get a 3 year old car and buy a warranty u can get even better value

I hate when people make blanket statements like that. There are so many situations where each type of car 'purchase' makes the most sense.

The bottom line for you, al, is that if you think you'd be using the car you're looking at now long term, and you can afford to either buy outright or afford the higher (than lease) monthly payments that come with financing, it's more likely that buying is the best option for you.

I realize that, and my comment still applies, though I don't mean to sound hostile or anything. The difference between what I said and what you said is primarily in that you make it sound like in his situation (and he didn't give all that much info) it's always a better deal to buy. I'm saying that even in his situation, that may be true much of the time, but it really depends on the specific deals he's looking at, and sometimes buying is not better.

When you see a store advertisement,  you know that there's going to be 3.5%-9% sales tax (based on where you live)

When the tax rate  is 25%,  it should be specified.  I don't think it's expected for people to be aware of that.

+

and when the ticket to israel is only $399 but there is another $500 in taxes do you expect the advertisement to include the taxes?

I spent $1500 on an after market warranty when i got my car. When it came time to fix my tranny there was no one to talk too, they gave some lame excuse and wouldnt cover it. Most go out of business so you lose everything anyways. I was told by a friend who used to sell cars to only get deal warranties and to always buy new vs used. He said you have no idea the BS used car salesman tell you to get you to buy the car.

First rule of buying used is always bring it to your mechanic that you trust, no matter who is selling it to you. Obviously nothing is foolproof, you can buy a car that your mechanic says looks great and still have problems. But a good, trustworthy mechanic will help you avoid the majority of duds.

Thank you everyone. just one note, this warranty is not sold as an extra. it comes for free with any car under 100k from 1 brand new dealership in my area. Obviously, if you are after this warranty, you cannot shop around.

Forumites,
I'm looking for a $200/month range AWD SUV like a Toyota Rav4. 24 or 36mos. and can be a stripped down model.

Any leads would be appreciated!
