Buy vs. Lease

 

It's that time again -to start looking for a new car in the Atlanta, Roswell, and Alpharetta areas. 

First you'll want to figure out the want and needs you have in mind for a new car and that will overall help you decide what's the best option for you and your budget. Don't worry; Jackson Acura has listed a few things you'll want to keep in mind.

 

Lease

  • Monthly payments will be lower as you are not paying interest rates
  • Less money down needed for the deposit
  • Length of leases are typically for 24, 36, 48, or 60 months
  • Responsible for routine maintenance services such as oil change and etc.
  • Yearly mileage limitations
  • Car technology is greatly advancing and leasing will allow you to upgrade to the latest tech every 2 to 3 years
  • Either turn the car in at the end of the lease term or purchase for the depreciated value

Buy

  • You actually own the vehicle
  • Monthly payments are higher since you are paying interest
  • Larger down deposit is necessary
  • Responsible for all service costs not covered by warranty
  • Once car loan is paid off, vehicle can be modified to your liking
  • Can keep or sell the car at any time since it's yours
  • Resale value will depend on upkeep of vehicle
