The Top Five Reasons to Lease Rather than Buy
If you’re not wanting to go the public transportation, taxi, Uber, or bumming rides route, you’ve got two options: to buy a car or to lease one. Which of these two makes the most sense?
That question is what this page is set up to explore. To that end, we’ll look at the five biggest reasons why leasing a vehicle beats buying one outright.
You’ll Never Be Stuck With an Old Car
When you buy a car instead of leasing, you’re typically really excited at first. You look around the lot, find that one car that seems to be calling your name, make all the financial arrangements, and get the keys. And this is when things start to go downhill fast. The very moment you drive it off the lot, that car will depreciate like crazy in value. In a split second, you go from driving a brand new car, to a used car that’s lost a lot of value.
The whole time you drive it, it keeps losing value. And then there are the repairs and maintenance to worry about. And, worst of all, there’s the fact that you’re pretty much stuck with that car for a long time. To get rid of it, you have to sell it for much, much less than you paid for it, and you’d have to go through all the hassles that selling a car entails. Go through a used car company, and lose even more money. Go the Craig’s List route and deal with major inconvenience. And until it’s sold, you’re stuck driving a vehicle that doesn’t have all the latest gadgets you’re likely craving and, more importantly, all the latest safety features designed to keep you and your loved ones safe.
When you lease, though, all you have to do is either fulfill the terms of your lease and then lease a totally different, brand new car with all those gadgets and safety features. Or you can terminate your lease early or engage in a lease transfer. When you lease, you’re just more “free” and more able to adapt to your changing needs.
Change Your Car to Fit Your Changing Needs
People’s lives can change dramatically in a very short period of time. Financial situations change just like that, with people getting fired, being laid off, having their positions outsourced, getting a different job that requires a long commute that makes having a very fuel-efficient car very important, etc.
And people marry and have kids, too. A sporty little car that you’d lease a year ago won’t quite work for you if you find yourself married and with a baby on the way.
Or consider the plight of a guy who’d leased a nice, sedate sedan and then decides to totally re-haul his life. He wants something sexier and sportier to go with his new attitude, and he needs something large enough to handle all the camping equipment and the dirt bike he now wants to use on the weekends after having lived a sedentary life.
When you lease, changes like these are a piece of cake. You can always be driving the right car, a newer car, a car with all the latest technology and safety features that’ll keep you protected.
You Can Get a Vehicle You Otherwise Couldn’t Afford
Buying a car outright typically involves large down payments. When you lease, down payments are much smaller – and sometimes non-existent! We’ve also got lots of experience in getting great financing deals for our customers, so low interest rates and low monthly payments are what you’ll have when you lease with us. Because of all that, you’ll be able to drive a “lot more car” than you could otherwise afford! Imagine driving around in a Porsche, Lexus, BMW, Jaguar, or Maserati! That can happen!
Because our inventory is so huge, so incredibly comprehensive, we’re able to offer you any new model vehicle made by Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Maserati, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Ram, Subaru, Smart, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo. When you first lease, re-lease, or if you end a lease early so you can get a different vehicle, you’ll pretty much have your choice of vehicles, all in one place so you can easily compare and contrast them. You won’t have to drive from place to place, visiting different dealers’ lots; instead, everything is convenient for you.
The convenience we offer even allows for you to do all of your car shopping from your own home. As we just noted, you won’t have to drive around from dealer to dealer to compare, for ex., Subaru’s with Toyotas. But that’s just the beginning! You won’t have to drive anywhere at all, not even to our lot! Our lot is a virtual one, a lot you can visit on the internet, any time you like, day or night, 24/7, all from your own home. There simply isn’t a more convenient, chillaxed way to go about car shopping.
