Wait cost is associated with reliability ?
Tell that to Range Rover owners... Since some seem to think that a 50k vehicle needs to be more reliable than a 25k vehicle. If anything its the other way around... what's going to have more issues... a 15k mitsubishi Mirage or a 400 Rolls Royce Wraith
It is insane that most JKs are well over 25k out here I can usually get far better deal on a new wrangler vs what carmax is offering. I am not sure who the shopper is that buys these but they are obviously out there
10 pages and not one person mentioned tax into the “depreciation” calc. 50k “msrp” wrangler will have another 5k of taxes and fees tacked on to it.
Obviously this varies based on whether you bought or leased it and when you sell it as this moves the amount you paid in taxes.
I am also surprised...
You incur it in the form of depreciation otherwise. No one wants a car with 150k miles @5 years. So 20-25cents a mile is a true cost whether you see it at the end of the lease of if you attempted to "trade in"
So say you put 10k down and are paying $100 a month. You total the car a year after you drive off the lot, do you get your 10k back?
Vs paying $500 a month and walking away payment free. Seems to me like you’d be 5k ahead. Who gives a crap what the market value of a car is on a lease when there...
Thanks for chiming in guys! Any ideas on shorter lease terms? Seems like fca likes to do 48months which is a bit on the longer side. My main thing is that I get bored quickly and like switching cars every 2-3 years. Our sales tax is just insane when that happens so I prefer to lease
I don't get the "you need to read what you're signing crap" I am pretty sure none of you asked for a $299 security sticker BS add on. That is the stillershit trying to pull a fast one on you, masking it with the large amount in the transaction.
let me ask you this, would you pay $299 at...
