I'm not a big fan of leasing a car, it was originally set up for the purpose of company cars. A manufacturer limits the amount of kms/miles on a vehicle and companies have the cars to give to their employees for a set time or distance. Car makers realized the potentional for the private market and leasing was born.
If she wants a new car, I suggest financing. Right now, at least in Ontario, you can finance a new GM car for 60 months at 0% interest. Basically the money is free. Sometimes you can find a sweet plum deal whereby no deposit, no interest for up to 5 years. That gives you the chance to pay it off sooner and not have to deal with the higher interest rates onece the 5 years expires.
On thing is for sure. Don't buy a used car and finance it. They'll take everything they can and smack you with like a 5% or 7% interest rate
