Question: Lease coming to an end

Hi, I lease a 2009 Civic Sedan. I've been researching 2012 cars to replace this one. I will most likely have to lease again since it is the only affordable route for me. We are hoping to find a hatchback

I'm running into the same issue, the dealers are all telling me I'll need to put $2000-3000 down and my monthly payments will still go up to afford to lease a 2012 car (I currently pay $202/month).

It is even more expensive to try to buy the car I'm currently driving as I had a small accident with the car that affects the left side panel.

I'm a single mom. I cannot come up with $3000.00. My teenage son is 6'3" and growing.

How can I find a car that I can afford with enough leg room for my tall son and good gas mileage? I need my monthly payments to stay around $200/month (or even go down, if possible).

Any suggestions on a car I can afford?

Thanks.

It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
