More likely to lease
If you don't drive a lot
Lease arrangements usually involve a 15,000 miles-per-year cap, and may go all the way down to a 10,000 mile cap, and charge for extra miles. If you drive very little, you may be a good candidate for a lease.
If you like that new car smell
When you negotiate a 24 or 36-month lease, you can be sure you'll always be driving a new vehicle.
If you like to stay under warranty
Although you need to maintain and repair your leased vehicle just as you would an owned vehicle, because you typically lease for 2 to 3 years, the car is normally under warranty.
If you like lower monthly payments
If you don't mind not owning the car, you are free to enjoy the benefits of leasing like low monthly payments and a low down payment.
If you'd like a more expensive vehicle
Leasing provides a way to drive a nicer vehicle than might otherwise be within your budget.
