What is the advantage/disadvantage to leasing a car, as opposed to buying one?

I remember car commercials giving the MSRP, but now they only give the lease price.

Well the leasing price is advertised because people often don't realize that the car companies make a lot of money off of interest rates and these car leases.

Here are the pros: (1) You can drive a newer vehicle that is always under warranty and seldom needs more than routine maintenance, and (2) you can often get a larger, more luxurious, better-equipped car.

Cons: Leasing for 24 to 36 months would end up being the same price as buying the car.

Some advantages of leasing a car include low monthly payments, fixed price motoring, and evading massive depreciation costs. Some of the disadvantages in relation to the same include not having car ownership, a certain amount of money will be charged in case you want to come out the lease earlier, and mileage charges may be in excess.
