1. Facts About Auto Leasing
Leasing has exploded in recent years, with individual consumers accounting for the bulk of the increase. It has grown more than tenfold in less than a decade and now accounts for more than 35% of the 15 million-plus vehicles sold in the United States.
Why the dramatic upsurge in auto leasing?
A decline in the percentage of disposable savings of Americans and changes to the tax laws are the main causes. In 1987, more than 70% of disposable savings were available for the purchase of consumer goods.
By 1993 that figure had declined to less than 40%. This year, the percentage continues its downward slide. Additionally, the many tax deductions that favored purchasing over leasing were eliminated. Since those tax laws were changed, leasing has enjoyed a steady increase every year for the last ten years.
