I’m trying out a new segment today where I answer a question from a reader with a Youtube video and a post. This week, RSG reader, Rania from the OC, e-mailed me to ask about buying vs. leasing a Prius.
Driving my leased Odyssey on weekdays is not paying off. So I’m contemplating buying a Prius for the weekdays. Financially it makes sense to get a $5k used one (my husband owns a small used car dealership and I can get a good deal) but I have a thing for brand new cars for mechanic reasons, cleanliness, and I’d rather spend the $300/month as opposed to $5,000 all at once.
So what do you think about the whole thing? Is it worth it? Should I stick to my van?
