What car can i lease for under $600/mo?

looking for some feedback on what cars are on the market that i could lease for $0 down, 4 year, for $600 or less. Interested in a convertible, but would take a 4 door sedan as well. Looking for something sporty and fun before the "minivan" stage happens!

That is a nice chart. You should also create an RFD special chart with cars in the range from $200.00 to $220.00.

The chart is nice, but you also need to consider maintenance cost over the lease period.

Unfortunately this is where the price jumps about $200 making the payments in the $800 range

^^ seriously george__? Not only do you rave over the Maxima, but this POS is nowhere near the OPs requirement.

Ford Mustang GT, VW Golf R should also be here.

I don't rave over Maxima, it's decent bang for buck used but not something I'd recommend... Requires 91, picky with parts etc.

The Mirca would definitely be under $600, cheap to own and gets you from point A to B

Great suggestion on some econobox. Remind me why anyone would lease a Mirca? Remind me why anyone was lease anything under $40K? I liked you better in the penalty box. :)

What's wrong with leasing something under $40k?

Also OP username ends with 16... Maybe this is his first car.

Well when you are self-employed, leasing is the way to go because the payments are tax write-offs. So that is why people would lease a vehicle. Besides, who the hell wants to keep a vehicle for more than 4 years anyway, at the rate of how vehicles are improving.

Nothing wrong with owning car long term... Look at how awful car quality has gotten in just half a decade

It's does not make finical sense to lease under $40k when the lease and finance payments are pretty much the same. You tend to lease higher end value cars for 3-4 years, the lease payment will be cheaper. But whatever, it's your money. When used for a business, you take the amount you made, minus your lease therefore, you made less money and pay less taxes. I'm sure there are plenty of rules when attempting to 'write off' your lease as a business expense.

Right, Ford Mustang GT is a good choice $569 (with msrp around $38,800). However, GT Convertible goes up to $765 a month.
VW Golf R is not available for lease right now.

By the way for those who are interested in Nissan Micra just $193 a month for basic manual one :cheesygri

Well, a/c, tire tax etc around $150 + $300 dealer admin fee on average. Just $10 extra a month for 48 month.

Taxes will be extra but dont forget you can always negotiate lease payments and your negotiated price should be close to what I posted earlier.
