So are you saying leasing is a dumb thing to do?

Basically that's always been my perspective.  But I've paid cash for
my cars since the mid-80's and kept them for a long time.  On a high-
depreciation car that I might not keep longer than a few years,
though, I'm wondering if that approach still makes sense.  Just
doing a brief back of the envelope figuring, it looked like it would
come out about the same if I only own it for three years.  Buying is
always better, I think, if you plan to own a car for more than 4
years.

Other option of course is waiting a year or so and trying to buy a
used 2004, that might save some $$$ too.  But I always have my
doubts about why someone would sell a car after only one year; seems
to me they might be more likely to have problems.  Based on a giant
assumption that people tend to hold on to cars withOUT problems, and
I know that isn't necessarily true.
