Woman receiving keys

Looking to upgrade your Jackson drives with a new vehicle like the INFINITI Q50? Many drivers face the same conundrum about car financing: to lease vs. buying. There are advantages to each approach, so the finance center at Herrin-Gear INFINITI has provided a guide to the question, “Should I buy or lease?” where to lease a car, and more below.

Lease vs. Buying: The Pros of Leasing

When you lease a car from a Madison dealership, you aren’t paying to own but rather signing a contract to keep and maintain the car for a specified amount of time. This has many perks, like:

  • More likely to get approved: if you are afraid that your credit score is standing between you and a car, the approval rate for leases is much higher than that for car loans.
  • Lower Down Payment/Monthly Payment: The dealer’s position is more secure when leasing, so you won’t have to pay as much monthly. You can even find a lease for less than $400 a month.
  • More Vehicle Choices: Because of the lower payments, you aren’t as limited in your budget as you would be buying a car. If you want to take advantage of the latest technology and safety features in modern cars, leasing is a solid option.
  • Trading-In: Want the latest vehicles? With leasing, the process of trading in one vehicle for another is simplified. Just pay the remaining fees and find your new lease vehicle!
  • Warranty Coverage: Dealers set a mileage limit when you lease, but as long as you don’t go over it, they will help keep your car in great shape with exceptional warranties.

Lease vs. Buying: Pros of Buying

Buying a car in Brandon comes with a whole other set of unique benefits.

  • Full Ownership: Leasing can lower your payments but it comes with a set of restrictions about mileage and alterations. Full ownership means your car is yours – you can modify it and drive it as you see fit! 
  • Financing Flexibility: Even if you’re worried about your credit, many in-house financing car dealerships can help you and even allow you to securely apply online. Re-financing is also a great tool car-owners have for lowering their monthly payments.
  • Selling: You can only return a leased car but selling or trading in your own vehicle is a great way to make some of your money back.
  • More Savings Over Time: The down payment and initial monthly payments for car-buying are higher than the ones for car-leasing, but overall you’ll be saving money by keeping up with and lowering your regular payments when you buy.
