So it looks like I'm eligible for $400/mo on purchase/lease of my own vehicle, plus 18 cents per business mile.

I'm leaning toward option 1, and just paying $1,000/yr for the Mazda CX-5, which incurs no other expenses on my part. Any opinions on the Mazda vs Forester?

Standard Miles Per Gallon: 21.0
Fuel Price Per Gallon: $ 2.648 (Regular Fuel) Based on 07/2017 Prices

Variable Cost Per Mile Detail:
Fuel: 12.61
Maintenance: 2.75

My experiences with Subaru were not as great as I thought they would be, so if I were on your shoes I'd be inclined to give Mazda a chance.

I decided on the Mazda CX-5 AWD touring and placed the order today. It will only cost me $80/mo to drive for personal use, and all business use and maintenance is covered.

My dream was to never buy a gasser again, but it looks like that day isn't quite here yet. Maybe in 4 years when I have to get a new company vehicle.

I'll dig this thread up in 2021.

Well, I just got word that my group is losing our company cars, which is fine by me. The crazy thing is I still haven't taken delivery of the car I ordered and there is no way to cancel it.

So, I'll drive a brand new car for a couple months and then surrender it.

This has me thinking about purchasing an EV again. Perhaps used Leaf prices in Feb will be stellar.

Would be nice if the field service managers talked to the fleet managers prior to making a proclamation.

I wonder what price the company will offer me to buy the car when it comes time to turn it in. Talk about taking a hit on depreciation.
