IV. Lower Maintenance Costs:
With complimentary "Toyota Care" for the first two years on all new
vehicles, people who lease a vehicle are typically only going to have to
pay maintenance on their vehicle for one year. The first
three years is also when the vehicle is less likely to have expensive
maintenance costs like new tires, etc.
V. Warranty Coverage: The
Toyota factory comprehensive warranty is 3 yrs/36k miles; this pretty

putting money out of pocket. On the contrary, 5-6 year
purchases leave you with 2-3 years of possible out of pocket expenses at
a time when your vehicle is more likely to incur
VI. Flexibility: And for
those customers who say "I want to own my car" that option is available.
At the end of a Toyota lease, you can either choose to keep
the vehicle and finance the remaining balance...or turn it in and choose
something else. With the lease scenario, you can still own
your car, but it gives you three years to think about it!

worked down the street doesn't fit your the 60 mile commute to that new
