I agree with you, I personally probably wouldn't do it even with steep discounts. The leasing and then buying could make sense just make sure to review all documents beforehand to see if there are any penalties, fees or specific timeframe requirements.Thanks for the reply TurtleBoy.
I am in Ohio and the option to roll up the tax into the payment is possible I believe.
Unfortunately, I am hesitant on getting a "new" car with that many miles on it. Call me old fashioned , but when I buy my cars new, I always like taking delivery with less than 30 miles on the odo. I know, weird.
So I am considering either purchasing the car outright with cash, or if it saves me more, then leasing and then buying after 1-3 months to take advantage of "lease cash". I will see if I can get more details. Any other suggestions are appreciated.
You will also want to check on the warranty both when you get it, as to when it started, and if there will be any implications if you buy it with an early lease termination.
