Should i buy or lease my next Benz?

Well i just got my first car 05 c320 4matic my parents got it for me since i graduate high school.

But i'm always thinking ahead...

But i been driving for a bit and i only drive 3,000 miles a year and i think i always will be driving that much per year.

I know with leasing i think you can drive 12k miles a year so if i only drive 3k will the make it cheaper per month because they can resell it after lease for a really good amount of money with really low miles.

If i was to buy a new Mercedes Benz e class it would be like 900 a month for 5 years. But if i was to lease probably 400 a month for 3 years.

And i hate the new c300 how they redesigned it so i wanna go with e class for my next one. Maybe one that's used since i don't drive much ?

How long did you plan on keeping your 2005 for? If you lease then you get a new car every couple of years... All well and good but you have nothing at the end and you go back into a car payment-Every month shell out $800+ vs saving up and doing say a cash deal on a E Class.

Buy a 3-5 year old car.
Let someone else pay for this depreciation.
You should always be "saving up"

Cars are a terrible expense, not an investment
