Lease vs Buy

Leasing vs Buying

Why Lease a New Car?

If you want to drive newer, safer, more reliable cars, trucks, or SUVs, but prefer not make a large down payment every 3-4 years, and also do not drive an enormous amount of miles yearly, then a new car lease should be the right choice for you. Leasing is designed for those who would prefer to bypass the hassle of selling and buying every time they want to upgrade to a new car, truck, or SUV.

Why Should You Buy a New Car?

On the other hand, if you like long term automotive relationships with a higher sense of commitment and ownership, then buying might be what’s ideal for you. Car-buying is typically best for people who will not mind driving the same vehicle for more than five years or even until it is no longer fit for the freeway.

Buying vs Leasing: Which Is Right for You?

Being aware of the pros, cons, and overall benefits of buying vs leasing a vehicle is imperative. Be sure to contemplate monthly payments, vehicle ownership, repair costs, and potential savings when considering the best new vehicle financing type for you.

Buying: Ownership vs Leasing

When considering vehicle financing, new car or truck ownership surely comes along with many advantages, most associated with entire ownership of the car. You may not be aware, however, there are also a few nice benefits of leasing, as well. It’s imperative to consider all financial aspects including depreciation, down payment, monthly payments, term length, buyout payments, interest rate, and maintenance & repair costs, before making a decision. A precise checkup of your current financial situation, future needs, and your preference for commitment, will likely ensure that you make the optimal choice between leasing and buying a new car.

Monthly Payments

Vehicle lease payments are often times less expensive than auto loan and car financing payments as the standard lease structure is basically renting with the option to purchase near the final payment of your lease term. Consider when leasing that you’ll need a higher credit score, and will be required to carry comprehensive and collision insurance, though the same can be said for the lowest rate auto loans. Although it can likely increase your monthly payments, it’s also smart to select a model with the features you need or want, as personal satisfaction is often priceless.

Maintenance & Repair

Auto leases often include regular vehicle maintenance & repair. It is important to keep this in mind when projecting monthly costs of ownership vs leasing. Regardless of which make and model you buy, mechanic bills are an unknown cost that can quickly add up. And for those of us who aren’t certified mechanics with a full toolset and hydraulic jack in the garage, leasing may be the best option for peace of mind.

Investment vs Savings

In general, a new car lease saves money in the short term with more affordable monthly payments, while buying gets you a long term investment, meaning full ownership of the value of the car at the time it is traded, sold, or paid-off. For best savings on a lease, avoid lease return fees for terminating the vehicle lease early, going over mileage, or putting on excessive wear and tear. For the best investment on a purchased/financed vehicle, you can pay it off quickly and also avoid excessive wear and mileage.

BH SERVICE center has always treated me like family. I bought my car in 2017 and to this day they are the only ones to do maintenance work on my Charger. Not sure I would trust anyone else to do it.

I was treated quite well at this dealership from my salesman (Herman) to financing (Elliot and Mark). I got the Jeep I wanted, a great price and financing went smoothly. I highly recommend this dealership if you are buying a vehicle. I have not met with the service dept. to date but I anticipate another great experience when I visit them. I have been on a 2 year search for the right vehicle and price and I hoped to be treated respectfully. I found it all there.

They took great care of us and Journey. My only critique...they informed me that it may take several hours to finish the job requirements. I made arrangements in case I was without a vehicle for the day. However, they did not let me know they were closing and hadn't finished. It was ok because I prepared for such a scenario.
