If you intend to give the car back DO NOT LEASE!!! They rape you when you hand it back, has to the be absolutely mint, otherwise you'll have to pay to get it upto mint standard. I speak from bitter experience
Here in UK they waive up to 25mm scratches & stone chips when returning a leased vehicle. Is that not the case in Switzerland? I've returned 2 leased cars so far with no extra cost (having repaired 1 big scratch before returning)

Re: Buying a Car vs. Leasing It

Did a check on Hyundai.
The 1.9% leasing is on select models. All others are 3.9%. Not a bad deal though by any stretch.

I think this very much depends. If I extrapolate my single point of experience (heh), then it is definitely possible to get away with a 15 cm gash from a misjudged column in an underground garage and a set of tires with barely the legal minimum tread left on them. I had much less mileage than the contractual limit so it is likely that the garagist was getting a good deal, nevertheless, I still liked that he had the courtesy to pass some of that on to me.

Just FYI it was the BMW Garage in Appenzell - definitely would buy there again.

Well clearly you had done less miles, the car was worth than a higher milage model. The tyres were legal so irrelevant.
If the garage will pay the leasing company at least what the leasing company want for the car then it's obviously no problem.

If I understand well now for the Eco-Blue models the leasing is 0.9%, really good.

I got mine in Gundeli Garage, Basel, all was really great. Carlo was the salesman and he speaks good english.

Recommend 100%

Re: Buying a Car vs. Leasing It

I would personally always lean towards buying a car with my own money instead of leasing (way too many complex clauses and tie-in's).


1. I feel this is because I don't see the point in a "new car", having a car 8 to 5 years old is totally OK.


2. As long as the car has proper service and is in genuinely decent condition then it is great.


3. I used to be a mechanic.


4. And also I love old school motors.




Would you consider any cars slightly older than the year your currently looking at, this would affect price a LOT?

There's is nothing stopping you from leasing an older vehicle*. Just sayin'


* They might put some rules on it, e.g. it should not be older than 10-12 years and there may be a mileage limit like less than 200000 km.

This is something i learned yesterday by a car dealer in Switzerland that older vehicle can be leased. In UK you can only lease new vehicle.

Leasing works for me. It is very civil. I take the car for 2 years. When deal is finished they take it back, and bring me another one. They try to stitch you off course even if you've return the car in mint condition. In my case I made a HD film before they picked up the car. When they told me i need to pay 200 for a big dent in the door, I sent them the film and she said I have nothing to pay for.

Re: Buying a Car vs. Leasing It

I still prefer to buy a car over leasing. I think in the longer term leasing is more expensive.
