Should I Lease a Car?
Leasing provides drivers several great potential advantages, including:
- More frequent upgrades
- Lower monthly payments
- Smaller repair costs
The typical leasing term lasts between 24 to 36 months, after which you can return your vehicle and roll into the latest model. This is a nice option for those not interested in a long-term investment or who like staying up to date on the latest features and innovations.
Another advantage is that, since you’re only paying for the length of your agreement, you often can end up paying less per month than if you were to buy the car outright. This means you might be able to put that budget toward a higher trim level or exciting feature.
Also, since the vehicle is always under warranty, you’re only responsible for keeping up with its routine maintenance, like oil changes and inspections.
If all these benefits speak to you, then you should probably lease a car. Contact our finance team and we’ll chat with you about it!
Buying vs Leasing a Car
Now that you know the benefits of leasing a car, you may be curious about how it compares to buying. Here’s the thing–both buying and leasing result in you taking the wheel of a great car to drive around town. However, the two differ in a few ways.
The big difference is that buying often comes with a higher monthly payment than you’d have if you leased it instead. This is because car buyers are responsible for financing the entire cost of the car. The trade-off, however, is that every payment goes toward equity in your vehicle. In other words, when you finish paying off your car, you own it.
Leasing, on the other hand, is like a long-term rental. This means that the dealership retains ownership of the car. Still, with the potential lower monthly payments, you may have more room to shop at a higher trim level or add on a feature—like ventilated seats—that you may not have included if you bought the car instead.
