I only buy cars. Leasing is the most expensive way to have car.

I have a friend who sells cars that told me leasing really doesn't make sense as you are making a downpayment (usually a pretty hefty one) on something you are never going to own.

never leased... usually pay cash outright... went into a dealership once and bought two Dodge Darts (back when they were a real car)... salesman thought we just couldn't make up our minds, couldn't believe we were taking 'em both

Always purchase as I have tried leasing twice and had bad experiences both times once the lease was up.
