Should I Buy or Lease a Vehicle?

a car owner trying to figure out if they should lease or buy a vehicle
 

If you’re dreaming of driving on Temple streets in a new Chevy truck, car, or SUV, you might be thinking, “Should I buy or lease a vehicle?” It depends on your particular financial situation, driving habits, credit score, and needs. While there are many benefits to leasing and many benefits to buying, there is no clear best choice. Here we compare a lease vs. buying so you can decide on the right approach. Then contact us at Don Ringler Chevrolet to test drive a new Chevy today!

 

 

Benefits of Buying vs. Leasing a Car

  • Ability to Sell: When you lease a new Chevy, you’re locked into the lease until the end of the loan term. You can’t trade it in, even if your situation changes. When you buy a car, you can sell it whenever you want to.
  • No Mileage Limits: If you tend to put lots of miles on your Chevy on yours drives around Killeen and beyond, you should probably buy vs. lease because a lease comes with strict mileage limits. If you exceed your lease’s mileage restrictions, it can cost you a lot at the end of your lease term.
  • Ability to Refinance: When you purchase a new vehicle, you get the option to refinance your car if interest rates decline.
  • Costs Less in the Long Term: Though buying a new Chevy may cost more, to begin with, it usually costs less in the long term. With total ownership, your Chevy becomes less expensive to own the longer you keep it.
  • Customization Options: When you purchase a vehicle, and you pay it off, you own it free and clear and can do whatever you want with it. There are no limitations on how you can customize or modify your car when it’s all yours.

Benefits of a Lease vs. Buying

  • Less Down Payment: One of the significant benefits of a lease vs. buying is that you might be able to get into a lease with zero down or very little down. So, if you haven’t been able to save up much money for a down payment, you may still be able to drive away in a new Chevy!
  • High Approval Rate: Leasing a vehicle is generally easier for those Salado drivers with poor credit or no credit. That is because credit requirements are more relaxed for those who choose to lease vs. buying a new vehicle.
  • You’ll Pay Less Sales Tax: In many U.S states, leasing a vehicle lowers your sales tax obligation substantially. In some areas, you only must pay sales tax on your down payment.
  • Lower Payments: When you lease a Chevrolet, your monthly payment will likely be less than if you bought it.
  • Premium Warranty Coverage: Warranty coverage and routine maintenance are straightforward when opting for a lease vs. buying. As long as you make sure you don’t exceed the mileage restriction, the issue is usually covered and won’t cost you much, if anything at all.
  • Trade-Ins: When your lease term expires, the process of getting into your next leased Chevy vehicle is simple. Just bring your leased Chevrolet back to Don Ringler Chevrolet, pay any necessary fees, and drive away in your new one!
