Buying vs. Leasing

One of the most important decisions to make when shopping for a car is whether buying or leasing is more beneficial. Which is the better deal? The answer really depends on what type of driver you are. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of both options.

Benefits to Leasing

Leasing a vehicle is attractive to many Chester drivers because, in a sense, you are able to get more car for less money. That’s because the lease is based on the residual value of the vehicle—that is, the expected depreciated value at the end of the lease term—not the full price. So, if a new $30,000 vehicle is expected to be worth $16,000 at the end of the lease, which usually runs for about 3 years, you only have to make payments toward that lower, expected amount.

For drivers who love to have the latest technology, leasing is a good option to have. Technology that aids the driver or entertains the passengers are increasingly found as standard features on newer vehicles. And because leasing ensures that your vehicle is never more than 3 years old, it’s a great way to have all the latest tech advances at your fingertips.

Benefits to Buying

Leasing’s downsides can come up quickly for some drivers when you review the terms of the lease agreement which often will include a number of restrictions including limiting the number of miles you can put on the car and prohibiting any alterations or customizations to be made. So, if you’re generally a driver who puts a lot of rubber to the pavement or who wants the option to install parts, then consider buying instead of leasing.

Also, buying allows you to reach that coveted and hard-worked for moment when you make your last car payment and you own the car out-right. With leasing, you never reach that moment—when you make the last payment on the lease, you have to turn the car in and start the process over again.
