Boy! I was coming to this thread to see if I should buy or lease my next car and after reading some of this stuff I'm more confused then before I looked at it! My Camry's 3 years is up next month. They want ~20,000 for the buyout (wow). Then there's the scratches. Then there's switching lights and sirens every time I do this. I don't know what to do. And also, I always tend to get lucky - sorry. no deals at this time!

Infinity $250 is less than I pay on any of my cars, but it's only for 2 years.

That's what I paid for a brand new leather Altima.

But now you understand how they can charge so little for the lease payments and still make money.

Maybe a bike with a little motor on it and two baskets with a masterlock!

Huh?
I compared it with leasing and I'd have to have a head of cabbage to have taken the lease on that deal.

Who do they think will buy a 2011 (granted it's loaded) Camry for 20,000? I don't get this business.

Yup, both are great cars.
2.5 years later and I'm very happy.  Of course with just 11K miles on it it's practically brand new.  Very happy I didn't flush $10,000 down the toilet.

Most people don't know how to negotiate for a new car.
