It is a "BAD" thing 1) the intrest % stays the same 2) in USA & Canada you pay tax on the "down payment" (cap reduction) 3) If you cannot complete the lease, the "down payment" is lost (remmember it is applied toward the "rent" not the value of the vehicle (residual) at lease end. check the following link for info http://www.leaseguide.com/index2.htm
