Why a lease anyway? Are you expecting to suddenly die? Cause at the end of the (prob) 36 month lease, you have nothing to show for it except a $30K hole where your money used to be.
Or perhaps I lease because of the type of driver and person I am? Maybe I lease because I like being able to walk back into the dealership and give them the car back when I've had my fun with it? Maybe I lease because it's more affordable for me currently? Maybe I don't want the only way I can drive a nice vehicle to be financing it for 72 months? Maybe I'm not concerned about mileage? Or perhaps I want to drive the car and if it falls apart be able to walk away from it? I think all of these things factor into why I chose to lease.
As said, there are a lot of factors why I have chosen to lease my last two vehicles. For the Nissan, I don't have any plans on keeping it and was taking advantage of good lease incentives.
