Of course they are now like turtles hidden away in their shells.
What would you tell your son or daughter to do, who just finished college, 21 y.o., and got their first 60k job? Whatever you would tell them to do, buy or lease, is the right answer.
There are pros and cons for each method, so long as you know what the pros and cons are then buying or leasing will be the correct thing to do. If I had a 21 year old son or daughter I would tell them to buy used and I will teach them how to fix it when it breaks.
