Ask Dave

Where Does Car Fleece Come From?

Hear why Dave refers to a car lease the way that he does.

QUESTION: Listener asks why Dave calls car leases a car fleece. Dave has a creative explanation for this.

ANSWER: There’s an old saying that when someone gets fleeced, they get taken and ripped off, like fleecing a sheep. A car lease is a ripoff; they are the most expensive way to operate a car, according to Consumer Reports, Money Magazine and my calculator. You’re being fleeced when you take one out.
