LEasing got a real bad name in the 80's. Where everything was a open end lease. You had to buy it at the end no matter what. If you gave it back you owed what it did not get at auction. Today 90% off the leases are closed end. Also the old days Sales price was not disclosed on the lease. Now it is. leasing is just another option to buy a car. It is not always cheaper. A lot of times it is the same payment for a 36 month lease as a 60 month buy. Leasig is not for everyone. A good salesperson will tell you the positives and negatives and let you make your decision. A Camry I would def lease.
