Pros and Cons to Leasing a Car
Leasing a vehicle can be an excellent choice for Manteca drivers. Leasing allows drivers to pay the residual value of the vehicle based on its expected value at the end of the lease term, rather than the full price. If you lease, your down payment will also be smaller — and since lease contracts usually run three years or less, you can have a newer vehicle while spending less money.
On the other hand, it’s worth considering that most lease contracts will limit the number of miles you can drive over the course of the lease. You are also restricted in terms of what alterations you can make to your vehicle.
Pros and Cons to Buying a Car
Buying a car also has benefits and if you like to keep your vehicle for a long time, then buying is the superior choice. Also, if you decide to buy you don’t have any of the restrictions you would have on a lease such as mileage limits or alteration constraints. So if you drive a lot and want the freedom to customize, buying is the way to go.
If you purchase a vehicle, you’ll be responsible for reselling it, meaning that you are taking more of a gamble with its resale value in the future. Buying also usually requires a larger down payment in contrast to leasing — and the smaller the down payment you have, the longer the term of your car loan will be, which means you could end up spending more over time.
