Benefits of Buying

There are two different ways to buy a car—you can pay for it in cash upfront, or you can finance most of the cost of the vehicle with a loan. Most people choose to finance, as they don’t want to or are unable to pay for the entire vehicle upfront. Buying and financing both have a number of advantages:

  • Gain Equity – Every payment you make on a financed vehicle is money invested into the ownership of the vehicle, which means you’ll eventually be able to get some of that money back should you decide to sell it.
  • No Mileage Limits – When you buy a car, you’ll be able to drive it for as far as you want and as long as you want—no mileage limits!
  • Customize the Vehicle – Because it’s your car, you can do what you’d like with it. Get a custom paint job, add performance enhancements, or, if you’re an audiophile, put in a brand-new stereo system.

Benefits of Leasing

Of course, quite a few people also choose to lease their vehicles. This is another option that has some big advantages of its own:

  • Lower Payments – In general, leasing a vehicle means lower down payments and lower monthly payments than you would have if you financed your vehicle.
  • Nicer Car for Less – Because payments are typically lower, you can often afford to get a nicer lease vehicle than you would get if you choose to finance. Thus, it can be a great option for a luxury car shopper on a budget.
  • Get a New Car More Often – In general, lease terms are shorter than financing terms. This means you’re able to get behind the wheel of a new car with the latest features in less time. Once your lease is up, you simply bring the vehicle back and can choose to either renew your lease or opt to lease a brand-new car!
