    I realize this might defeat the purpose of a lease in that you get to pay less than you might if you bought the vehicle.   But if you are one of those who would rather just give up the vehicle and get another every 2-3 years, and had the cash, would a dealer allow this?

    I'm not sure I understand why you would want to do this. The best policy for buying vehicles (as with any other purchase) is to buy what you can afford. In other words, pay cash. Early on, if you buy a reliable used vehicle you can save the money you would have spent on payments to buy a better car next time (savings + trade-in value).

    Wouldn't this allow you to do the same thing you are asking?

      I've personally purchased 1 vehicle new and several used, but I've never leased because of all the advice that I've been given about it.  I'm trying to better comprehend the full scope of the cost of a vehicle.
