Leasing is a form of financing where customers do not pay for the entire car. When leasing a vehicle, you simply pay for the depreciation that occurs over the term of the lease, plus interest and fees. Typically, there is an amount due at signing, then the balance of the cost is paid off in installments throughout the duration of the lease term. The most common lease terms are two and three years, though contracts can be negotiated with different terms. You can also avoid the depreciation that comes from purchasing a new vehicle when leasing a vehicle. Other benefits of leasing your next ride include:


  • Latest Tech - Depending on the vehicle you lease, you can find the latest in safety and connectivity technology

  • Lower Monthly Payments - Paying for the depreciation that occurs during the term of your lease, your monthly payments are nearly always lower than when purchasing a car. This may allow you to get a nicer vehicle or afford a few additional options for the same monthly payment as you would were you buying the vehicle. 

  • Warranty Coverage and Maintenance - You don’t have to worry about the cost of expensive repairs as your new vehicle should be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty for the length of your lease term

  • Ease of Trade-In - When the lease has ended, you can simply return the vehicle to the dealership and walk away after paying any final fees

  • Smaller Down Payment -  When leasing, you’ll often have a smaller down payment than if you buy. Additionally, sometimes a lease may require nothing due at signing


Buying your next vehicle has benefits of its own, depending on your needs. Owning your vehicle means that you have more options for customization, mileage, and time restrictions. Buying a vehicle means that you can drive without worrying about mileage restrictions. You can use the vehicle as a trade-in on your next purchase or sell the vehicle at any time to purchase a different vehicle. Additionally, you can also customize your car to your tastes.
