I think some of you guys need to do the simple math when looking at financing, regardless of whether it's a minivan or not. A $30k car financed over 60 mo is $500/mo wo any financing charges tacked on yet. And leasing the same car for 36mo at 50% residual is $417/mo wo the finance charges or taxes added in yet. Good luck finding a $200 lease payment (unless you're doing a 24 mo lease on a $20k car with 3k down like all the dealers advertise to suck you in).
It's pretty simple - look at the numbers and do the math.
I have found a lease for under 200/month which like you say is admittedly a cheaper car (Chevy Cruze) but there is no down payment on it and that is with all the taxes and fees, documentation added in. But that's a pretty good deal. Brand new and under warranty so not gonna have any issues with it breaking down. So basically just saying you are wrong about needing 3k down or anything like that on any lease.
Thing is, I got that whole package for 30 K a couple of year ago. Granted I had a chrysler employee number, but you're right, 40 K no way.
Oh man, I bet you got so much pussy in that van.
WTF? I've never taken the cat in the van once.
