What is Buying?

Buying a car consists of either outright paying for your purchase or signing a loan where you will make monthly payments. Once the loan is fulfilled, the payments stop, and you will have full ownership of your vehicle. This means any equity you have in your car could be put to your next purchase.

What is Leasing?

Leasing is essentially like a long-term car rental. Over the course of the lease, you pay for the depreciation of your vehicle. And once the lease term is complete, you return the vehicle or opt to purchase it. This will allow you to upgrade your ride more often, every couple of years.

Benefits of Buying

Buying a vehicle comes with a number of benefits. You will have the ability to customize your ride with things like tint, and you will not be limited in terms of mileage. When you buy from our dealership, we have the ability to work with a variety of lenders. Which may allow you to enjoy lower monthly payments on your finance plan. Benefits of buying include:

  • Eventual ownership of your vehicle
  • Potential for lower insurance
  • No mileage limits
  • Ability to customize your ride
