Doing the math, it takes a bit over six years of leasing, or two lease periods, to pay off the car. After that, you are driving the car only for maintenance and repair. For the period of the first lease, you are driving the exact same car, for the next, you are missing out on the LCI version, and for the next, you are driving the older model for the price of maintenance, then you go on from there.

If you are willing to drive older cars, however, you can usually own two cars for only one car payment a month.
