      Scotty, what would you pay for a 2019 Ford F-350 Lariat diesel?

      Scotty, your assumptions on leasing are predicated upon 30 years ago.... A LOT has changed in 30 years. Seriously, if you haven't the slightest clue about how a lease works, you really shouldn't be telling others about it. I am not a mechanic, but if I was to tell you how to rebuild a transmission with a set of pliers and 30 weight ball bearings you would think i was mad wouldn't you????

      Hey Scotty got a question for you. I'm looking at a 2007 Saturn Ion with 90,000 miles that runs okay is it worth $1,500?

      My mom past away, she had an 2018 Toyota RAV4 22k miles, still owning 19k, the car had a accident in the front left bumper, not extremely bad completely fixed, still worth for me to pay off the car or return ? I like the car a lot but I don’t want to lose money, thanks !

      6:25 there is a logical reason why the fuel consumption would be higher with a full tank vs a low tank. That is less weight to carry. But is it noticeable?

        Car dealerships don’t lose money. If they can advertise “$10-20k OFF MSRP!!!!!” It was overpriced to begin with. That’s why the head transmission guy at my local Ford store was taking home $100k per year 20 years ago.

          Scotty have a 2016 Honda Pilot LX with 40,000 miles. Can you work on all the safety computer assist and intelligent cruise controls and lane management if the stop working ? The keyless entry and beep locking system is another complex electrical system. All in all computers run the whole electrical, fuel and safety system . Can you work on the whole car?

            Actually Scotty, when your tank is full, your car weighs more, and therefore uses more gas!!!

            Gonna be a small difference though, but thought I would contribute!!

                              Many years ago my CPA had me lease a vehicle through my company then at the end of the lease I purchased it personally, so a $40,000 car I paid with TAXABLE income $5000,. People don't think, let's say for every $1000 you earn you pay $300 in income tax that means if you buy a car for $30,000 you have to earn $39,000 pay your $9000 in taxes then buy the car. See, see? BOOM!

                                                            Scotty, about the problem at minute 6 - there is one more answer. My 302 y.o. Corolla Liftback does the same. The pipe to the petrol tank has hole from the rust. And the top 3 litres (and a bit more) of the petrol just drops down... ;) So I just don't charge it to the top. I know that also dust goes inside the tank, but in real the car stays outside since the last December and I am driving the Focus combi diesel I have...

Nice staff, excellent vehicle, some negotiating and an overall great experience. Managed to knock off thousands by simply working with my sales rep. Didn't get any extras and will return for service. Modest dealers do exist, it just might take a minute to find them.

New car every 2 or 3 years then definitely lease. Also cars like Toyota’s and Honda’s lease wayyyyyy better than crappy cars because they retain value. My last 2 Civics would’ve been cheaper to lease then buy then if I actually bought them outright. My last Civic had almost $1000 in positive equity towards the next one as a trade in. Also if you lease, Gap insurance is included, and you can often find especially with Honda, true first payment down only leases. That means if you agree on say $249 a month then that is your first payment, no tax no anything, just make sure they actually say that in writing. There’s no benefit to putting a down payment on a lease if you can avoid it.

                                                                        • Brian Perlera

Works very well and is very efficient. Honda's older design was considered a mild hybrid, nothing like their current design.
