Should I buy or lease a car in this market

You can buy a decent used car using cash for about 15k to 20k. If you cannot buy it for cash, save up the cash to do so. Why would you lease a car? Leasing a car is like selling yourself to the devil.

Market doesn’t matter. Leases adjusted like new car prices. So the normal lease v buy considerations apply

Op I would say go for lease now if you can find a good deal. The market is not good for used cars so I would stay away unless you have no option. If the dealer is charging premium then maybe order one from factory, it may take some time but you don’t have to pay the market premium everyone is charging.

Haven’t been able to find a good lease. 3k down $470 a month at least for mid size suv

Leasing keeps your monthly cash outflow lower than buying. Gives you flexibility to buy it at a predetermined residual value at the end of the lease, which you could finance if you choose. I’ve run the lease vs buy numbers in my own little world throughout the years and there’s no discernible difference in total cash outflows. So it comes down to personal preference.
