I personally feel that leases are not a good idea. In my family, I have a cousin who does that, but no one else. That cousin likes to always have a new car. However, for the average person, it's not a good idea. Think ab it this way. When you lease a car, the same way as buying a car and having a car note, you are required to have full insurance, that means that you are requiring a lot of extra expense and the average person is not capable of this.
