Makes no sense to me. Your paying 35$ a day right now to drive the altima and another $6-10 in gas. If you work close to 20 days a week plus other driving that's close to 1,000 a month.

Your big issue is not gas mileage or depreciation its that lease and the miles. If you drove a car with even 35mpg that you owned it would save you close to $800 a month. No car out there will depreciate at this rate. Getting any car quick is better than waiting UNLESS you just buy the car at the end of the lease and finance it.

That would be a much better option.
This is the first week that I've driven and been over my 45,000 miles. I am trying to expedite this and get it done by Sunday. I won't continue on driving this car; even if I have to buy a temporary car before I get my next real car.
