Re: Why Buy when you can LEASE? Ah boy Massy Motors...

One area of concern would be definitely the requirement that all maintenance costs be borne by the leasee . A proper definition of maintenance costs should be sought up front so that a full understanding of the financial impact is appreciated and can be factored in. Hopefully, items normally covered...

Looks like the on-board data capture system the COP advised would be installed on these units may actually be working based on the fact that the news could inform velocity vehicles were being operated at.
What makes matters worse, is it seems the vehicles weren't responding to any emergency.
