Rambo a down payment on a lease is bullshit. I gave a 2k downpayment on my cc and i pay 300 dollars a month. And its mine. Now you are giving 2 to 3k iof downpayment in something that is never gonna be yours, plus side is that some of that money is tax deductible. Lease its only good for people that have plenty of money. My friends have a fleet of 7 cars at least and they all lease because they change them every year.
