I don't mean to jump into this discussion when I wasn't part of it, but I just wanted to correct this leasing explanation. Actually, what happens in a lease is the leasing company decides how much the car will be worth in a given period of time. For example, you lease a 30,000 (the capitalized cost) car for three years, they may decide that after three years the car will be worth 15,000 (the residual value). So, now you're responsible to pay 15,000 for your "rental" of the car, plus interest (money factor in lease terms). So, you're essentially financing 15,000 over three years, instead of say, 30,000 over five years. Hope that makes sense...just didn't want there to be any confusion. -jt -- > From: TimeRangernopsam.com > Organization: Posted via Supernews, http://www.supernews.com > Newsgroups: alt.autos.saab > Date: Mon, 21 Feb 2000 13:15:03 -0800 > Subject: Re: leasing a saab > > On Mon, 21 Feb 2000 12:15:56 -0500, "Jeff Crews" <NoSpamnopsamgt; wrote: > >> What kind of deals have you seen? >> > > None.
