Lease vs Buy, Golf GTI
Okay, so, I'm looking at a 2012 (used) GTI vs Leasing a brand new 2013 GTI, both with the same options (sunroof/nav, 2 door, manual)..The 2012 is 24,600 and the payment with my credit at 60 months is $430, and the car has 9,000 miles. The 2013 GTI is 340ish a month on lease with my credit for 42 months, 10000mi a year. The total payment on that car is right around 13,000 at 42 months, and the buyout price is right at 14,000. But that car is brand new with the options I want..what would you do, and why? I feel like the lease is a really good deal since the buyout is so much less after the 42 months, and a 3 year old GTI is going for around 16,000-20,000..and I drive maybe 7-9k miles a year.
