What Are the Advantages of Financing?

  • When you finance your vehicle, you will own it 100% after you make your final payment.
  • If you plan on customizing your vehicle with aftermarket accessories, financing is a must.
  • You are not restricted to a set amount of miles when you finance, meaning you can drive your vehicle as much as you like.

Disadvantages of Financing?

  • Finance deals often include a higher down payment, more costly monthly payment, and a longer payment period.
  • Your vehicle will depreciate significantly the moment you drive off the lot.
  • While new vehicles come with a warranty, there are items that are not covered.

When Is It Better to Lease a Car?

  • Lease terms are much shorter than financing terms, meaning you can always have the newest model and the latest technology.
  • Down payments and monthly payments are typically much less expensive than financing.
  • Most repairs will be covered by your warranty, meaning regularly scheduled maintenance will be your only concern.

Disadvantages of Leasing a Car?

  • When you lease, your total mileage is restricted to a predetermined limit. If you go over this limit, you will incur a fee per mile.
  • Any damage to your vehicle that is deemed more than regular wear will have to be repaired at a cost to you.
  • If you wish to leave your lease before your period is done, there will likely be a cancellation fee.
