Yes you can pay for more miles if you want. On the otherhand why? It's like borrowing money from them without paying interest. Yes, it comes due, but at the end!

Besides, they only see how many miles you have if you turn the car in at lease end. Sell it yourself and all you do is give them a check for the pay-off. Trade it in to a dealer, the dealer sends them a check for the pay-off. Keep it, and just refinance through you credit union or bank...they never see the miles then either.

Leasing is just another method to finance a car. I personally think a good method because it works for me. But I want to drive a new car every 3 - 4 years, so I have set a budget and I plan on making that payment for the indefinate future. I never worry about warranty because my car is never out of warranty. I never buy a set of tires, etc.

I've done the math and don't see much difference as long as I'm driving a low depreciation car.
