Re leasing, I thought that this analysis of the lease vs buy decision was one of the best, most thorough, and most objective I've ever seen:
I have both bought and leased cars and timing is a big factor for me. I disagree that leasing is only for business vehicles, though I have run numerous leased vehicles through my companies. There are some good reasons to consider a lease over a purchase, and vice versa. No one can or should make that call for you with blanket statements. The key is to go in with your eyes wide open and realize that for each benefit of the two approaches, there are also compromises.
I plan on buying my WK2 (or whatever I wind up with as my next vehicle) because in a few years my son will start driving and I want to plan ahead for some gently used inventory for him to take over (back to the timing factor). But I also enjoy driving new vehicles, so I can see me leasing again in future years. For those who like to drive vehicles till the wheels fall off, that would make no sense. But that's their issue.
