I had a 1995 Grand Prix I traded on my Challenger. It has 60,000 miles almost exactly when I traded it. Over that 21 years 1 set of tires, 1 brake job, 1 battery, one alternator and belt. Oil changes, and that's it. 21 years. Is that typical? Perhaps not, but is the ungodly amount you would have to pay typical? Unlikely. There are benefits to a lease certainly, but purely financially, a lease is more expensive on average.
