Now you know why leasing a brand new, unreliable car every 3 years is vastly more expensive than buying a brand new (or slightly used), reliable car and keeping it for 10 or 12 years (or, ideally, just running it into the ground for as long as possible).
Unfortunately if the car in question is unreliable, then you're pretty much out of luck and you'll have to pay to play.
