Saw a 05 c6 red. I love that car. Honestly, it is only a couple
thousand less then a new one. New one, I can lease and leave the cash
in the bank. Used, I have to take the money out of the bank, so I
think I am going new.
Ok, I dont like to haggle. Best place to go for a lease in NY area.
Kids bat mitvahs, sweat 16 parties, college weddings all good things.
buy hey, It is my turn. I am talking for you to buddy!
Whoa. There are actually 3 possibilities here. Certainly lease is one
and that might be valid if you are planning on replacing the car after
24 or 36 months.
You sound though as though this car will be a personal-use 'keeper' for
several more years. If so, it's time to check for any GM offers of zero
percent money in the NYC/NJ/Conn. area. If so, you get to keep the
money in the bank, finance the car and, over 5 years, probably beat the
cost of a lease.
Looking at the purchase option also gives you a more valid price
comparison between the used C5 and a new C6. Personally, I don't lease
anything unless more than 85% of the lease expense comes out of a
business account and there's no charge-back to me, tax-wise, at the end
of the year.
I agree with Dad -- a couple of thou difference between a new Corvette
and an used one isn't even pocket change -- unless you *know* what that
car was doing and what was being done to it.
