Leasing vs. Buying a Car

While buying your next car gives you the freedom to do whatever you want with it, leasing makes it much easier to have a vehicle with the latest bells and whistles. As most drivers around Madison and Ridgeland know, it’s more complicated than that, though, and there are also budgetary considerations. So when you’re looking at new vehicles for sale, it’s worth diving into the details about whether you’re better off financing the purchase or leasing.

Benefits of Buying

Many of our drivers make the trip from Clinton with the intention of financing a vehicle, and there are plenty of good reasons to finance to own:

  • You Own It – You’re building equity with each payment you make. Whether your loan lasts 36, 48, or 60 months, you’ll own the car at the end of it and you’ll be able to do whatever you want with it.
  • Customize As you See Fit – Since you’ll own the car, you can make whatever modifications you please, whether that’s a custom paint job, a new audio system, or performance-enhancing additions.

Benefits of Leasing

Leasing a vehicle is essentially borrowing it for a predetermined period of time for an agreed-upon price. When the lease term is up, you can return the vehicle, or you might have the option of buying it outright. Some of the advantages of leasing include:

  • Cost – As a general rule, leasing a vehicle requires a lower down payment and a lower monthly payment than purchasing one. This may enable you to drive a nicer, more feature-rich vehicle for less.
  • The Latest Features – Most leases last 24 or 36 months, meaning that, when your lease ends, you can return the vehicle and lease a newer model with the latest features.
