didn't you mention you were going to just pay cash? Cash is going to trump financing/leasing any day of the week and 10 times on sunday. you have no need for gap insurance coverage, you are fully equitable, and your total cost of ownership = total cost of the car + tax + license (no lease fees, no interest, no turn in fees, etc). If you want to get rid of your car early you can do it whenever you want and don't have to fuss with paying off a loan and waiting for your title.
Plus you don't have to give out your SSN!
