Automobile Consumer Services, Inc. (ACS), a provider of online direct-to-consumer auto leasing, released a list of the top 10 most requested vehicles from its auto leasing website www.LeaseCompare.com. Information was collected during the second half of 2006 from more than one million lease quote requests.
Japanese models continue to dominate the new cars listings and German models head up the used car rankings. "Volume brands, like Honda and Toyota, are becoming more popular for leasing," says Tarry Shebesta, President of ACS and a certified lease consultant. "While high-end used European models, like BMW and Mercedes, make excellent used car leases because of their slower depreciation and perceived long term reliability."
