In this video I discuss whether you should buy or lease a car. So which is the better option? The truth is that there are two aspects to this decision.
There is the mathematical decision, and the personal situation decision. Some people like to drive new cars every three years, so they think it's better to lease a car. Some people like to drive cars longer than those three years and take care of their vehicle, so buying a car may be a better option for them.
Leasing a car is generally better if you're the type of person who likes new cars every three years. There are pros and cons to leasing a car vs buying a car. Some of those Pros is that you know you'll have a modern vehicle with all the updated amenities. However there are also some restrictions when leasing a car that you should be aware of.
Buying a car is generally the better option if you were someone who likes to hold on to their vehicles and likes the repair and work on them yourself. if you hold on to your vehicles for five or more years, it usually makes all the sense in the world to buy it and drive it into the ground. The person who owns their car can also sell their car at the end of ownership allowing them to recover some value of the vehicle. You can't do this if you lease your car.
Watch the entire video to find out if you should buy or lease your car!
It was easiest to use the numbers from the Khan Academy video below because there are SO many different situations when it comes to Buying vs. Leasing a car that CANNOT be covered in one video. There are so many different makes, models, and manufacturer incentives that change over time. I decided to stick to a general overview for this video, along with my personal opinion at the end. For the original numbers please see the link below. Thanks again for watching! :)
