How many of you will be buying and how many will be leasing?

For myself, I think it will be a lease instead of buying. I get bored too easily so it makes sense for me not to get stuck with one vehicle for more than 3 years.

My first car was a new car i kept till it was so old and run down that the next step was to turn it into a small square of metal. Never want to go through that again, rather lease and keep this for a few years and move onto either another CX-3 or some other model that interests me.

I'll buy it. Never been a fan of leasing. Sure you get new cars more often but I don't think its worth the extra money.

Leasing is always a good deal.... for the lessor. I trade frequently and have never found depreciation to exceed lease expenses. Its the lease that ties you down, not the purchase. Try leaving the lease before the term is up, or exceeding mileage limits. Penalties can be onerous.
Want to put a pin-stripe or custom set on wheels on your leased vehicle? Its not really yours so forget about it.

Even though I trade in to the dealer and take book value trade-in, it still comes out better. Just take good care of your ride, and the dealer can sell it off his lot rather than wholesaling it off somewhere. They love that. They make a lot more money off your clean trade in than than they do on a new car sale, and this can be reflected back to you on your purchase price. Gives you increased bargaining power.

I think that the only appeal of a lease is being able to get a new car every few years, but you are going to be paying extra for that luxury. It certainly doesn't make sense as a better financial option though.

It's good for those that want more of a worry-free experience that have the money to afford it.

Is it a more worry free experience? At the end of the day you don't actually own the car so a spill or knick or something like that can be a big deal. I would be more nervous knowing that I have to give this back afterwards. Have to keep it in pristine condition.

I have only leased one car, a Lexus IS350. While I loved the car I hated leasing as I don't even keep a car for 3 years. In the end I had to find somebody willing to take on the lease to get out of it. What a pain.

BUY is BETTER
The question is what do you buy or what should you buy?
With leasing you are purchasing transportation over a period of time subjusct to condoition .
Then again you could rent something from an agency.
I have done that many times only on vacation, however there is alot worry attached to that system .
There is a price to pay for pease of mind also there is alot to be said for freedom and pride of ownership.
For many next to a home, a car is a big investment, and uslually involves a bank loan being subject to insurance and loan payents.
Over the years I have always owned the best of the best most practical and sensible cars available you can not beat quality you can always sell quality.
Life for many is an up hill battle as we get older our requirements change to thinking down size , that is a wrong move, getting in and out of an up holstered roler skate is painfull.
A car dealer told me that todays cars are throw away, I guess he was talking about what he had to offer.
Mazda is in competion with many of the up market cars, Mazda offer style and quality at an affordable price that fits in the middle market like Audi ; Volvo; Mercedes and B.M.W. However there is no guarantee that those cars are problem free , service is a paramount requirement.
The worst thing a person can do is buy a cheep car and pretend it drives like a Porche, we only come this way once I always buy the very best of the best with in my limits and be contented, for me it just takes sacrifice.
