Your talking 2 or 3 years....Im talking 20 . How much money and how many cars are you going to lease in 20 years? My cars are paid off in 2 to 3 years....The rest is just maintanance. When my trucks hit 5 years, its just liability and glass breakage. You think that you are saving money, and you are really spending money. Sorta like, you cant see the forest for the trees. By the way, Ive never had an extended warranty in my life. So far ,, no need for it. But you dont know my history, or what I have done in my life. You keep talking about 0% financing, well I never finance. I just drive em. These last 3 will be my last. Most people cant, or wont do what I have done with my vehicles. Thats OK. You just keep leasing, Ill just keep driving. Well see who comes out ahead.
Too old to waste money leasing. Bought my 2015 cash, and never looked back. Plan on keeping it 20 years.....or until I die. Still driving my 1998 silverado, and my 2007 Duramax. Dont forget to factor in full coverage insurance on those new trucks. Sorta" bumps up your payment. Like someone said earlier,,,,,Car companys dont lease for your benefit...They are there to make money. Keep you commin' back,, Guaranteed annual income. Keep the money flowing. Young people today should buy a good used vehicle ,, preferably off someone they know.. Change the fluids on a regular basis. Learn how to work on your vehicle. brakes are so easy to maintain as are other things. You can Google how to fix things on just about any vehicle. Thats what Ive done all my life, and im so far ahead of the game moneywise.......well you get the idea.
2015 High Country. 26k and so far perfect. Another keeper. Never been back to the dealer for anything, not even recalls. My opinion is, "If It Aint Broke, Dont F### With It." Change your fluids when your suposed to, gas it and drive it. I would assume that these problem trucks on the forums are "Bought" trucks and not leased trucks. If I had a leased truck with problems, I would suck it up and at the end of the lease, turn it in. Case closed. Luck of the draw. If my bought truck had a lot of problems, I would trade er in so fast that it would make your head spin. Probablly not on another GM. Life is too short to go through vehicle hassles with stupid dealerships that dont know what they are doing. Out of the millions of trucks that are sold, these forum problems are minor, no mater what brand, Ford or Chrysler. Luck of the Draw!!! You pick your truck, and you take your chances. Thats life. Most of these new trucks are great trucks........Im still driving my 07 Duramax......just another keeper.
I call Southeast Michigan, "Gravel Train City"!! There are so many trucks slinging gravel on our roads, that it is ridiculas. When im on a 3 lane, I try to stay as far away as possible.. Two lane roads are the worst. I try to stay far back from everyone now, cars included. Its amazing how this has cut down on my chips. I wish that I had done this when the truck was new. Even though the paint sucks, you can somwhat aleviate the chip problem. I plan on keeping this truck forever, so I should probably get the tape coating on the front end. I think that im in the minority, as people who lease vehicles could care less about paint chips, or anything else on the vehicle. They just figure that they will get another one in a few years, so what. Why should the car companys worry about paint, These " Lease " people far outnumber me or anyone else on this forum. As long as GM is making record profits on cars and trucks, get used to Paint Chips. Just do whatever you can to stop them.
I have a 2015 Silverado High Country and have learned so much from this site, that I thought that I had better sign up. This site has so many knowledgable people on it, and I hope that I can learn more, and possibly help out here and there. Been a car guy all my life.
