Leasing vs Buying

What Does it Mean to Buy Your Vehicle?

When you buy your vehicle, you have a few options. If you have the cash up front, you can buy your chosen vehicle outright, but more likely, you’ll be taking out an auto loan to finance the cost of your vehicle. This means you’ll likely be paying a down payment and then a set amount to cover the entire cost of the car over your chosen term length.

What this means when you bring your vehicle home is that you’ll be the sole owner of the vehicle. You can drive as much as you want and customize your vehicle however you might need, such as any accessibility equipment or a new paint job.


Leasing vs Buying

What Does it Mean to Lease Your Vehicle?

Leasing is a bit different than buying, as you won’t own the car yourself. We’ll still own the vehicle, and you’ll essentially be renting it from us. This typically leads to lower monthly payments and a lower down payment, if you have to put down a down payment at all. Also, because we want to protect our investment in your vehicle, you’ll always be under warranty.

Things will be a little different when you take your vehicle home as well. You’ll likely have a shorter term length, sometimes as short as two years, and when it comes up, you’ll bring the vehicle back to us. After that, if you’re in love with your current vehicle, you can buy it from us or put together a new lease for the most recent model year.
