Should you lease? It's a tough question.
Leasing a luxury car might be worth it if you're self-employed and can write off the cost as a business expense. Or it may simply be a way to drive a fancier, more expensive vehicle than you could otherwise afford to buy. But there are things you will want to consider before leasing:
If your mileage exceeds the annual allowance, or if you damage the car, you will probably have to pay a penalty.
If you choose not to buy the car at the end of the lease, you may have to pay a termination fee.
To help figure out how much a lease will cost you, try an online leasing calculator, such as those offered at www.calculator.com and www.leaseguide.com.
