Car: to buy or not to buy (Houston)

Hi All,

I wonder if any of you have been in the same position as me - I've just moved from the UK and will be in Houston for Protected content . I'm not sure what to do about a car, I'm renting at the moment but it's going to be very pricey to keep it up for the long term! I'm not sure whether to rent, lease, or buy second hand - does anyone have any recommendations?

My concern with leasing is if I have to leave after 8 months there may be some sort of penalty for breaking lease early, but buying seems to be quite complicated with car loans, insurance, selling it on when I leave etc.

Any thoughts appreciated!
