In the "real world", a large percentage of people that say they would never lease will instead purchase their cars, have a loan on them, and trade in before the loan is paid off. They're still always making payments, except you need to worry about depreciation with the loan, loss of value if the car is hit, etc. To each their own, but for you to say it is bad financial advice is off-base and inaccurate.
