Did you mean lower residual?
No - I really meant higher residual, which would lower the monthly payment. If you don't understand why a higher residual should lower monthly payments, I can explain it.
My comment was meant for people who plan on turning in their vehicle at the end of lease and not buying it afterwards . If one wishes to keep the vehicle, you should just buy it and take out a car loan for 4 or 6 or 8 years - that should cost less than leasing it then buying it. If you do lease then maybe wish to buy 3 years later, compare what is out there on the used market - if it's less expensive then buy one of those (or use the cheaper price as leverage to get your purchase price lowered) and if the 'used' price on the open market is higher, then buy it for the residual.
