I dunno what the rest of the budget looks like, but on $4k a month it should be feasible to save up and buy a $10-$15k car in cash within a year or so. There's really no reason to complicate the process and get into a lease just because you can't wait a year to have a nice shiny toy to tool around town in.

You aren't listening. He can afford it AND putting extra money into a savings account is POINTLESS!

I was confused for two pages until I finally realized the point that was being made was:

Leasing a BRAND NEW loving CAR is better than buying a BRAND NEW loving CAR.

Okay, great.

I'm with Leperfish on this one. Most people don't care enough about driving a new car even if they can afford it. Considering that most families are more concerned about how they are going to get their kids through school or even make ends meet, a new car isn't ever a good financial decision. Most people in this forum are in school, just graduated, or early in their career where a new car is a terrible financial decision.

Good information on leasing though - I think it's widely misunderstood and as you've proved, it's not inherently bad if you're in a situation where you want a brand new vehicle.
