I know I can afford it. I just want to know when the best deals are. I average about 12,000 miles per year.

Well, I would have to say the best time is when you know you can afford it. You will need to have a large amount due at the time of signing and then so much per month to lease it. Then, any miles you go over the alloted miles per year, usually 10,000-12,000 a year, you will have to pay so much per mile, which can range from 10 or 15 cents up to 25 cents per mile. So, it all really depends on if you know for sure you can afford it or not.

I would generally say you should buy, but with SUV resale values tanking leasing would be a good way to not eat that depreciation. Anyways now would be a good time since SUV sales are slow. I would also recommend you check out the the Escalade, Range Rover(buy one of those used if you're going that route) or Audi Q7. I say that because the GX is a fairly old vehicle and it's interior is a bit behind those SUVs. I suggested the Range Rover because you can find those a year or two used for $40K.
