    Default Lease or Buy a Car

    I'm on the market for a new car. I am trying to figure out whether to buy or lease, leaning on a lease, because I really don't want to put out too much money to buy a car. My life is pretty predicatable (though I understand things can change in a heartbeat), and I feel I could keep within the mileage limit. I've already owned and paid off a car.

    Do/Have any of you lease(d)? What have been the good? the bad? the ugly?

    Please share!

    Buy a two year old car. Get a loan from your local credit union. Negotiate via email.

    The general opinion on car forums seems to be that leasing is always a bad idea, no matter the situation. Synarch has good advice - buy a decent used car to save money over new and enjoy the ride.

    i always buy older cars. the price drops a lot on older cars, and if they are halfway decent they really don't have many problems or repair costs.
    to me, a 2 year old car is very new.

    The older new car is an option as well. Thanks.
