Buying vs Leasing: Which Is Right for You?
When it comes to deciding whether to buy or lease your next car, there are a few different factors to consider. Both options come with their own set of benefits and either one may be a better fit for you at this time.
Benefits of Buying or Financing
Buying a car means paying for it in full. However, most car shoppers choose to put a down payment toward the value of the car and then finance the remaining balance with an auto loan from a trusted lender, like a financial institution. The auto loan principal and accruing interest is then paid off over time through monthly payments.
Once the auto loan has been completely paid off, the driver won’t have to make any more monthly payments and will own the vehicle outright. Buying or financing is a good option if:
- You want to drive the vehicle for an unlimited number of years and miles
- You want to personalize or customize the vehicle with accessories
- You want the option to trade in or sell the vehicle at some point down the line
Benefits of Leasing
Leasing, on the other hand, does not result in vehicle ownership. It’s like renting a vehicle for a term that usually lasts between 24 and 36 months. However, at the end of the lease, you’ll have the option to simply return it, trade it in for a new lease, or buy or finance it to make it your own. Leasing is a good option if:
- You want to upgrade to a newer vehicle every few years
- You want warranty coverage to be included with the vehicle
- You don’t want to spend time or energy trading in or selling the vehicle in the future
