If money isn't an object go for it, more turnover, new cars more frequently.
Actually, I just did that with my previous car (vw diesel jetta). $0 down, sold just prior to turning 2 years. Made $26 back

BUT, the car was purchase, so monthly payments were much higher comparing to those if I would lease the car for 3 years.

Basically 2 years lease for me would work almost exactly same (in terms of monthly payments) as financing car for 5 years
