So instead of the $8000 transmission the dealer said I needed, the locally run repair place thinks I need a new $10 clip as the squeak was just a loose pipe due to a broken clip. Even if they end up being wrong this seems with trying and they can give me a new transmission for $1700. I think I am done with the dealer.

Another reason that I lease. It's either covered or I turn in the car.

I would get charged out the ass on a lease for going way over the mileage allotment and for what my dogs would do to it by riding in it all the time.

I think leases really only work for people in very specific conditions, i.e. they are putting a ton of mileage on a car for business, etc. in a very short window. Otherwise, they are generally considered far less economical than outright buying the automobile.

I've also seen people lease knowing it's not a great deal, but they have a ton of money and don't care, so they much prefer having a like-new car every 1-2 years or so, even if it costs them more over the long run.

It always release from the same dealer, and they always waive the mileage. I've never paid any charges when I turned in a car.
