    There are too many factors. Interest rates, taxes, down payment, residual value, car model , month of lease, accessories, etc. For example, a Civic lease payment can range anywhere from $200/month to $600/month.

    My MINI Copper cost $350 CDN/month to lease for 39 months, 0 down with a 62% residual value. I think the final price was around $27,000.

    Why not go to the manufacture's website, build your car and it'll give you a payment calculator.

    Look at the Honda deals on the web for leasing.

    You can get a 2011 Accord for $199 per month for 36 months with a down payment of $1999 plus taxes and license fees.

    That is a very good deal.

    most of the time the down payment must be somewhere $2000- $3999

    Seriously though, like said before, there are way too many factors. Go to the dealership of choice and get a quote.

    Thanks for the info.

    I was just inquiring for somebody else. I went online and I got spammed by dealers as soon as I asked. :)

    I figure most cars are between $199 and $299 per month but I didn't know if I could trust the commercials. The Honda Accord deal with modest down payment sounds great.

    I leased 2 Honda sedans last year. I got the accurate info from the Honda USA website and then called a local Honda dealer to do the paperwork. It was $199 a month. The price has gone up a bit since then.

    Leasing is a terrible option in my opinion. You are better off buying.

    Leasing is worthwhile if you are not hurting for money.
    So, I agree with you that buying is a better choice cost wise for most people.

    I have a Civic LX and a 36 month lease, 12k miles per year, is $214.10 a month. Although I think they are offering better deals now.

    There is no case for leasing other than it makes it easier to get a new car way before you need it, over and over. Some states charge much higher sales tax for leases vs purchases, to make it even worse.

    I can always have a new car, never have to worry about tires or tuneups. I can have a Honda, then a BMW, then a Porsche or whatever I want every two or three years. This is an extravagance I can afford.

    You are correct saying that leasing does not make sense for most folks, but I am not "most folks".

    If you upgrade your car every 3-5 years leasing is not *that* bad.

    If you drive your cars into the ground, it's an awful investment ;)
