Lease or Buy

Lease or Buy

i purchased a S90D and I just paid off . So now I want a second Tesla the X and now have to decide to lease or buy it. Just wonder who leased and who bought and why

I never lease because I think it's money down the drain. I keep my cars as long as possible.

Lease is fine - if you don't drive a lot of miles.

Personally, for me, I would max out those miles in 6-9 months - then I'm paying for a car for another 2 years or so that I cannot drive. Yeah that makes a lot of sense.

It really depends on your personal situation. If you drive a lot of miles, then no - If you're just using it to get groceries, then yeah a lease probably makes sense but why would you want to lease a $100k car if you're not going to drive it!?!?

If you're using the vehicle sparingly, lease a Volt or Bolt & save a BOAT-load of money

I think I am in the @lilbean thinking I love my S and will be keeping it so second one will be the X100 purchased

@nipper2 Nice!

Give it to me!! I'll add some miles to it.

We are at 18,000 miles and haven’t had the X for a year yet. A lease would not work for us. We just love driving this thing way too much!
