I leased a 2007 that I ordered in Jul 2006 and got in Oct 2006.. it was returned in Oct 2009.. Sport 2x4, Vista blue, loaded, 3.73 limited slip 5 speed. I think my lease was $248 a month.

I got my Black 2004 Ford Ranger Edge as my first vehicle in 2005 at $12,000. The dealership sold it to me as new, but had less than 10k miles on the thing. After being in a couple accidents and transmission going out, I'm ready to trade it in with a newer ranger.

(Will try to put pictures up this early next week!)
Pictures coming soon!

Bought my first car in 1955 (cash). I don't change cars often as when maintained right they just go forever. So I've only had about 30 vehicles (cash), one was new which I regretted because it didn't give me anything a 3 yo car would. Compared with my freinds who've had 2 to 3 times more cars, new leasing/loan payments) often changing before first was near the end of contract. I could never making a case for a working class man to buy new and make 3 year contract, buy out for another new car 2 years later, constant large payments, especially having a family. So I always had more torys than my friends. And my driveway often looked better than theirs. That big depreciation hit in the first 3-4 years plus the interest expenses, is simply crazy. I pay cash and choose high end, caddies, mercedes, Ferraris, etc. Last year I bought my 12 year old showroom looking Ranger (for weekly grass clippings) for 1/10 price had I bought new. For grocery runs I just picked up a few year old Buick w/new engine for 1/10 the new sticker price. With payment money I paid to myself monthly.

It's easy for those accustomed to making payments. Next time you pay off a vehicle continue making payments, to yourself in special account for 1 year before changing cars. Repeat that on the next car. At the end of 2 cars you will have enough money accumulated to buy a new car...but continue to make payments to yourself. Plan that out on paper and learn the secret to driving nice cars without worry about having a tight month and missing a payment.

Guess if only business bought new vehicles, there would be a larger demand for old cars (employees) and they would cost more. Ok by me.

I have a 2000 that I took over payments on in 02 from my niece. I drove it for three years and my wife dove it for a year until she gave up driving.
So know she is ready to get back behind the wheel and I have to get the old ranger up and going again.
