So it is better to buy a used or leased car rather than buying a new car. 

In Michigan, manufacturers are charging average lease amount of $450 for a month. And on a new purchase, you will be charged with $550 monthly for the six-year loan. A three years old SUV can save you $13,000 or more. A leased or used car generally comes installed with quality used engines parts that make them affordable for everyone.
