    That's me! An interweb goof

    And it's true too. What I think can't actually matter that much.

    But still, leasing would suck for anyone who thinks the oem-as-delivered F150 is an 80% finished product that is waiting for the owner to address the shortcomings.

    I gotta buy it so I can finish it so I can enjoy it until it's a family members turn to wear it out.

    If you’re having to make separate posts online about purchase price and then about leasing, are you barely scraping into the new truck? Why not just keep your low mileage 2016?

    I hate to tell people how to run their lives, but my gosh it’s lovely having no car payment. I’m fortunate to have lost the “new car every 2-3 years” syndrome by my late 20’s. But, hey, it’s your life and your money.

    Well, I'm definitely not scraping by! Im just trying to figure out the best route to go. Yes, I can keep my 2016 truck, which is in Perfect condition, but I like a new truck every 3 years. Im just trying to get inputs and opinions

    Leases are not that bad...you pay a little more but you get a new truck every 2 or 3 years and you shouldn't buy any brakes or tires. I've done them all buying worn out cars,new and leases. My 65 year old father decided after years of the same thing wrenching on them to go with a lease.

    I'd be a perfect candidate for leasing if they came with Bilsteins, 35's, Audiophile entertainment, Lariat Sport grills, and 400+ HP, and 15,000 miles per year.

    But they don't. So I'd be driving it every day tortured by not being able to address the OEM shortcomings.

    An F150 is the most amazing canvas in all of the personal transportation world. But they come unfinished. Even the $65,000 examples.

    Porsche makes a few vehicles that I could lease.

    I usually spend 10 years or so in a vehicle, and like having no payments for a period of time, so I'd be a terrible candidate for a lease. I have 72,000 miles on my '16, so there's that factor too. We also had a pretty poor experience with my wife's last lease and it left a bad taste in my mouth for leases.

    Ya true...but when your getting another one the wave a lot a things wrong with the vehicles. Leases are a pain for that when you want to walk away and go to another manufacturer.

    When my wife leased the car, she told the sales lady that she drives X number of miles a year, and she would definitely go over on the miles. She'd never leased before and wanted to know if that would be a problem. The sales lady said, and I quote, "No, not if you turn it back in here, and buy something else from us. They let that slide."

    Turned out to be a total crock of crap. The sales lady used my wife to get some numbers that day. When she turned the car in we were hit for over 4,000 dollars that were tacked on to the next car, so we are currently very upside down on it . We weren't married when she got the leased car. I was there but had no say, and with the last one I wasn't there. She's banned from purchasing any more vehicles on her own. Lol.

    She should have gotten something in writing, or not believed that junk.

    I love my wife, but she and I both know that women are just targets for scummy sales-droids. Her last vehicle, she was present for the test drive, and she and I picked out the options. Then I handled all of the purchasing. Best way to go.

    My guy, the fella I bought from for about 15 years, LOVED Brenda. She was always bringing him banana nut bread she made herself and also overseeing his health issues. (he had heart issues and high blood pressure, she was a cardiac research nurse)

    Richard would give Brenda a better "deal" than he'd give me. And he had no problem rubbing that fact in to me.

    Of course, that was win win for me. Why would I object? Lol

    Richard passed away in his driveway one day while loading up his Excursion to go to Daytona for the 500. He never missed it.

    And most of you fellas know about Brenda. I lost her 5 years ago today. (Easter Sunday April 20th 2014)

    It's a bitter sweet weekend obviously. But those two working a deal is actually cherished memories. It was a hoot to watch.
