When you find yourself in a position to procure a new car, truck, or SUV, the task of finding the right vehicle at the right price can seem overwhelming. Plus, once you've narrowed it down, you have to decide whether to lease or buy. How do you make the decision? Well, drivers are often attracted to a lease because you can have a brand new car at what may seem like a low payment. But in the end, you'll spend more over time. Purchasing a new car, truck, or van may seem like a good idea, but as soon as you drive off the lot, new cars begin to depreciate.There are clear advantages to both and which one is right for you will just depend on your budget and lifestyle. Our experienced sales and finance teams understand benefits of buying and leasing, and they love working with drivers to help them make this important decision.


If you plan to buy, consider it a long-term investment, as you will hopefully keep the vehicle for many years to come. There many be a few conditions needed to be met to keep the warranty, but overall it is your car to do with as you want. Want to put in a booming sound system? Go right ahead. After the vehicle is paid off, you will own it and there is no giving it back to the dealership. You can drive you car as much as you want, add bumper stickers, and/or customize it to you hearts desire. Are you ready to check out all the new vehicles available to you?



This is a good option for those who do not have the funds to purchase a particular car above their budget. There is a financial freedom in having a car that you may not have been able to afford to buy otherwise. Leasing also gives people the ability to change out cars every few years. This is great for those who do not want to commit to a long-term investment. Leasing a car does come with some requirements, such as limitations on mileage. The flip side is that leasing comes with more protection. Since it has to be returned to the dealer at the end of your lease, the dealership usually offers service and protection for the vehicle.

Benefits of Purchasing a Vehicle

    The most important benefit of purchasing a new vehicle is that with every payment or maintenance cost, you're putting money towards ownership; when you are finished making the payments, you'll own your car or SUV outright for as long as it's on the road.You'll have more flexibility to travel since you won't have any mileage restrictions when you purchase a vehicle.You won't feel any pressure to make repairs or pay fees for mileage and wear and tear, and you'll find that much of it will be covered by your warranty on new vehicles, anyway.

Benefits of Leasing a Vehicle

    Since you're paying a portion of the vehicle's value over time versus paying the entire value of the vehicle, you may find that a lease payment is lower than a purchase.You'll need to keep your eye on the odometer and make sure to perform regularly scheduled maintenance and repairs since, with a lease, there are guidelines for mileage and wear and tear.You'll enjoy a more predictable cost of ownership since you'll own the vehicle for a short period, and the warranty often covers the vehicle through part (or all) of the lease period.When your lease is completed, you have several options;  you can buy your leased vehicle for the residual value, lease or purchase a new vehicle, or you can move on from the lease completely.
