I would imagine it's a case by case basis, type of thing, but from personal experience, a car lease becomes Freddie on Elm Street level nightmare if you exceed the mileage. You need to make sure you have a buffer.

It's a no brainer. You got a working truck, still paying off student loans then you want to lease a new or used vehicle? Keep driving the truck. Ford parts are easy to get. Get an indie mechanic you trust to keep it running. Pay off debt as soon as possible. USA economy is driven by most residents constantly in debt and living above their means. Don't be part of the crowd. Be better than that.
