I've never leased. Paid all m y cars off and then after each one was paid off I drove for years without any car payment.

I've owned a car or truck or both since I was 20 years old and now almost 70 yr. Living in rural areas requires having a dependable vehicle.

I prefer any equity after a car is paid off to belong to me.

I never saw the upside of leasing, I want to own and have title when I pay all that money into something

I own my car because I don't like owning money on a car for years on end.

I feel like leasing a vehicle is a waste of money.

I've always seen leasing as something for businesses, or for people who want a new car every year or two. We bought our minivan new in '05 and plan to drive it into the ground.

I always purchase low priced used vehicles and hold onto them as long as I can. It saves me a ton of money that way.

I've leased before and went over my allotted mileage. It cost me a lot of money.

I've both owned and leased over the last 40 years and found that leasing was not a good option -- at least for me. Despite all the rhetoric to the contrary, leasing is very expensive.

I am low income and could not afford to lease, if I wanted to. Plus, I enjoy customizing my car the way I like.

We keep them for long time.

A lease would not be the best option for me.
