Yes, in that scenario where your employer is making the payments it could work out well.
Here is one more...if you are incorporated yourself, and you take a three year tax depreciation on your vehicle, used as a personal business expense.....then a three year lease is the way to go.....plus, every three years you get a new car and are alway's under factory warranty.....Believe me, if leasing did'nt make so much sense, in so many ways...you would'nt see it all over.....funny though, it just does'nt make any sense for you or i....lol....

Not that Toyota was EVER behind GM=Govt Motors. They were just held up by a earthquake and a tsunami. Detroit will say anything to try and pretend they were ahead. The only thing that Detroit has done over the years is making "Lemon Laws".....laws.....See, GM can make a difference. I watched the Flint news while I was home for the Holidays. They showed video and talked about the space shuttle "Endeavor". How it was flying to Cali on the back of a 747, travelling thru the streets. Not any video or mention of the "TOYOTA TUNDRA" that pulled the 300,000+ lbs to its final spot.....the rest of the world covered the whole story...NOT Derot, Flint, MI. They just wiped their tears wondering why a dumastic auto wasnt picked...OUCH!!!!!!!!

Kinda doubt the Tundra is capable of towing any more, than many of the american trucks....it was either a commercial or a tremendous public relations mistake to allow a foreign vehicle, close to the shuttle....

Kinda doubt...? The Tundra set the bar....changed it all!!! Ho, half ton or 3/4 ton is even close...domestic anyway. They can put 2500, 3500 on the side, oxerrate the specs till the cows come home.......the little 3 will always be lemons!!!

The Tundra is an overpriced joke!
Not a REAL truck by any means. Not much of a frame, not safe to pull anything.
I wish Toyota would get with it and come out with a real "truck".
I'd consider it.

You hit the nail on the head. Pensions are disappearing. Many companies have learned the hard way that these legacy costs are too expensive. Individual retirement funds, 401k's, IRA's, etc. where the individual has control, are taking over.
As an example, GM has 200,000 employees and 400,000 retirees. How can paying 3 people to do the work of 1 be profitable?
GM already bought out the pensions of non-union retirees. UAW retirees are next.
Absolutely!! Any young worker starting out should start investing immediately, it beats a company pension in the long run and you have control over the funds. Kids don't think about things like retirement, let alone early retirement, which is what I did years ago.

I am also glad, i was pro-active about future retirement....but, we all should of been aware of the hazy, pie in the sky retirement plans, so many companies and municipalities offered the older hires....50% at 20 years(at highest paygrade achieved) plus 2.5% more for every additional year worked, and with no financial input by the employee.....geez.....no wonder places close their doors and towns go bankrupt....

Thats a domestic truck you are talking about. Overpriced, underpowered and no style to speak of.......insure a domestic and a Tundra and the rates on the Tundra are higher...its a reputation thing....quality, resale and reliability///its the real deal. I pull a 9,000lb TT with my Tundra. I pulled it from MI to the west coast. Plus, I had a 500lb toolbox in the bed. The Tundra would pickup speed going up a 6% grade. Would I trust a domestic...not on this earth!

Surprised to see a big recall on Honda Passports and Odyssey vans....Honda does'nt get many recalls, and these are two of their highest rated family vehicles....forgotwhat they said it was for, possibly airbag deployment....

You guys have your opinions on the foreign cars but when it comes to trucks the foreign companies don't stand a chance. Just look at the sales numbers and look on job sites you will see the trucks that dominate.

So according to your post TOYota should be the number one selling truck? Right? By the way the TOYota pulling the shuttle looked to be on level ground, you ever see the videos of a man pulling a bus, truck or train? Its not that hard to get something moving on level ground.

What bar did Tundra set? Worst selling full size truck? Lowest ranking overall of full size trucks? Most expensive of full size truck? What bar you talking about?

What is a foreign car? Ford builds cars in Europe and Asia designed specifically for those markets just as Honda and Toyota build...

WOW!! You should be impressed you can pull a box with your TOYota. 9,000 lbs and you are impressed? You never hauled anything that was heavy have you? You know thats only 4.5 tons right? 500lb tool box? Really? I guess if you have a TOYota thats alot to you.
