Leasing a car is for folks who cant do math, or are working a tax dodge.

Or who absolutely, positively must have a new vehicle every three years or less.

Or have a fixed/limited income and need a reliable vehicle with a warranty. 

If you pay someone to do all maintenance and repairs, annual mileage is low, and are willing to switch makes/models every three years to get the best deal, then your monthly cost may be close on leasing vs buying

Not all lease deals are bad deals. Many you're basically just paying the depreciation. I don't like it, I think it is rarely the best idea financially, and I think they get a bad reputation for good reason, but they're not inherently bad.

I checked and neither Dr. Schrödinger or Dr. Reiss ever held a political office.  I mean I know the rules and everything.

A vehicle leased in 2019 with a 2019 purchase agreement is now worth $10k more than the agreed upon value at end of lease.  So does he buy and flip or get bent over for an eight year loan on an 80k new truck.
