Leasing isn't for everyone. For people who don't drive much, enjoy getting new cars every 3 years, take advantage of the tax benefits then leasing is a great option. I have another vehicle that I can balance my mileage on so I can drive my car on a few vacations if I please. I paid $1500 at signing and pay $599 a month, hardly a high payment at all.
