When it comes to leasing vs. buying a vehicle, the Axiom readers have spoken: buy. Nearly 90 percent of our respondents recommended, in general, to purchase a vehicle. Your advice is in line with financial icons like Dave Ramsey, who is outspoken about buying: “If you can’t pay cash for a car, then ride a bicycle. But don’t lease a car.” While our poll-takers didn’t stipulate the concept of “buying with cash,” they were just as strident – look to purchase and avoid the lease.
