Benefits of Buying

When buying a vehicle, you take ownership of it right away. This allows you to customize the vehicle the way you want and make it your own.

When you buy, you can take out an auto loan. It is a long-term commitment that allows you to pay off the vehicle over time. This can help you enjoy the vehicle for years to come, giving you the flexibility to drive it as much as you want and make any updates and changes to the vehicle over time.

Here are a few of the benefits of buying:

  • Long-term commitment
  • Make enhancements, add accessories, and customize your vehicle
  • Drive as much as you want
  • Monthly payments on the vehicle over several years

Benefits of Leasing

There are also several benefits to leasing a vehicle. Let's take a look:

  • Short-term commitment
  • Lower monthly payments
  • Pay for the value of the vehicle as you drive
  • Options when lease expires

A lease deal is a short-term commitment that usually lasts two or three years in length. During this time, while you may have some driving limits, you only pay for the value of the vehicle as you drive. This can lead to lower monthly payments.

When your lease expires, you also have options. You can choose to purchase the vehicle and take out an auto loan on the remaining value of the vehicle or return it to the dealership and take out a new lease on a new model. This can be a great way to keep up to date with the latest features that a model has to offer.
