Well, with leasing you will need to get full coverage insurance since the car doesn't actually belong to you....

This is not actually true, most (if not all) lending institutions will require you to keep full coverage insurance on the vehicle, as long as they have a lean on the vehicle. And they actually hold the title until you make your last payment.

Not sure if this is just a VA/US thing, but I doubt it, it makes sense for them, because if you total your 3 and stop making payments, the bank will have nothing to repo/sell.
