    It is highly unlikely that you can lease a new car for $150/mo, now.

    Lots of opportunities to buy something with an $8K budget. Try posting your question here, and let our experts help you:

    You should be able to find something lightly used with plenty of miles left on it for $8K or less. I'd steer clear of giving yourself a monthly payment with that budget though - sounds like a potential problem to me. If I were in your shoes, I'd look for something that's 8-10 years old and has 100K or less miles on it. So long as it's been kept in decent shape and maintained, that should keep you going for a while.
