We should be calculating the total net lease cost as a better comparison.

Overall out of pocket for two years is ~$160/month.
Subtract out gas and estimated ongoing repairs on the dying subaru I sold puts me at about $0/month to drive it for two years (or even net positive. that subaru was a money pit in repairs and had cost me about $150/month the years I owned it after warranty)
Plus carmax missed the ball on evaluating my dying subaru and gave me $4k for it.
