Just out of curiosity, and I apologize if I missed this elsewhere... is there any difference on how a FICO score is affected by getting an auto lease (e.g. 36 month) as opposed to an auto loan (e.g. 60 months) and assuming all payments are made on time? Does getting a loan make a bigger impact than getting a lease?

A new car every 36 months is terrific. I am getting ready to turn in my RAV and will move up to an '08 RX-350, with $0 down and I will need $0 to drive it out the door.
