Benefits to Leasing

Is buying or leasing a car better? The answer really depends on what type of driver you are. It’s true that you might be able to get more car for less money if you decide to lease. Because the lease loan is based only on the percentage of the full price, the difference might be advantageous to some Lathrop drivers. Also, if you only have a small amount saved up for a down payment, leasing may be the better option for you as well—but keep in mind that your monthly payments will be higher if this is the case. Lastly, lease agreements typically run three years, which is usually the length of most bumper-to-bumper warranties. Your vehicle, then, would be fully covered for the duration of the lease term, which could mean a major plus.

Benefits to Buying

One significant drawback to some drivers when leasing a car, is the limit the term agreement sets on things like road mileage or customizations. If you typically put a lot of rubber to the pavement, or think you’ll want to add features or make alterations on the vehicle, buying would be the better option for you. Also, if you like having your car for as long as possible, consider buying. Eventually, you will pay off the car and won’t have to factor in any more payments in your monthly budget, which can sound pretty sweet to some.
