Buying vs. Leasing

Your Car Dealership In Columbus Offers Multiple Ways To Hit The Road In Style

Shopping for a new or pre-owned vehicle brings with it a lot of moving parts. In addition to finding the right make, model and best features, there's the question of how to most comfortably pay for it.

At Crown Eurocars of Dublin, we understand people have different agendas for the lifetime of the car they choose. Some want to buy it and hang on to it for the duration, while others may be more interested in having a vehicle as a lease for just a few years at a time.

There are distinct advantages to both approaches. For a better understanding of how the buying and leasing processes work, read on.

Buy It, Own It, Customize It

The most popular way to pay for a new or pre-owned vehicle in America is by buying it. We certainly understand that most people aren't just going to walk in and drop a credit card down for the entire amount. Instead, the buying process is often achieved through auto financing. If you have a car you would like to trade in and put the value toward your new car or even have a cash down payment to make, that will obviously cut down on what you are left to finance.

Until the vehicle is paid for in full via monthly payments, the lender retains control of the vehicle's title. The length of an auto loan will vary and, many times, can be paid off in as few as 3 years.

Among the advantages of buying your new vehicle is that, over time, equity could build up. Also, there is no set number of miles you are limited to and you are free to customize the vehicle as you wish.

Leasing Leaves The Door Open

If you're the type of person who prefers to not get into a long-term commitment with a vehicle and don't need to rack up large amounts of miles, a car lease could be a great option. Since you are not buying the vehicle, you would instead be paying for the depreciation of it during the length of your car lease, which makes for significantly smaller monthly payments than what a finance payment would be.

Two things to consider when you choose a car lease. The first is that there will be a limit to the number of miles you can put on the vehicle. If you plan to stick around the Columbus area, that shouldn't be an issue. Also, since you will be returning the vehicle after 2-3 years, you are not able to customize it. You drive it as is.

Whether it's in a new or pre-owned vehicle, many Columbus drivers are on the road today thanks to the option to lease. Keep in mind, when you lease, you can eventually switch plans towards ownership, lease another vehicle at the end of the term or just walk away with no strings attached.
