The argument for leasing seems to be when someone says they fully intend on driving a new car every 3 years. If you read forums sometimes people are doing it for only 2 years now...marketing has gotten really good.
I'm not sure whether I'd get sick of the car of not after 2-3 years, so I'd like to keep my options open on keeping the car vs having the option to give it back. That's why leasing and then choosing at the end of the lease seems like a good process so far.
