Leasing vs Buying a New Car

Woman shaking mans hand over a car contract clipboard with car keys

Why Lease a New Car?

If you prefer to drive newer, safer, more reliable vehicles, but prefer not pay a sizeable down payment every 3-4 years, and also don’t drive an enormous amount of miles every year, then a new car lease may be the right choice for you. Leasing is better for those who would prefer to avert the hassle of selling and buying every time they want to drive a new vehicle.

Why Buy a New Car?

On the other hand, if you want long term relationships with a greater sense of ownership and commitment, then buying may be what’s ideal for you. Car-buying is typically best for people who do not mind driving the same car or truck for more than five years or even until it’s no longer suitable for the freeway.

Lease vs Buy: Which Is Right for You?

Being aware of the pros, cons, and overall benefits of leasing vs buying a car, truck, or SUV is imperative. Be sure to acknowledge factors such as vehicle ownership, monthly payments, repair costs, and potential savings when considering the best new car or truck financing type for you.

Buying: Ownership vs Leasing

When considering vehicle financing, new car or truck ownership certainly comes along with many well-known advantages, most associated with absolute ownership of the car, truck or SUV. You may not realize, however, there are also some nice advantages to leasing, as well. It’s important to consider all financial aspects including interest rate, down payment, monthly payments, term length, buyout payments, depreciation, and maintenance & repair costs, before making a decision. A precise inspection of your current financial situation, future needs, and your preference for commitment, will likely ensure that you make the best choice between leasing and buying a new car or truck.

pros and cons of leasing vs buying a new car

Monthly Payments

Car, truck, or SUV lease payments are often times less expensive compared to car financing and loan payments as the typical lease layout is basically renting with the option to purchase at the end of your lease term. Consider when leasing that you will need a healthy credit score, and will be required to carry comprehensive and collision insurance, although the same can be said for the lowest rate auto loans. Though it may add to your monthly payments, it’s also better to choose a model with the features you want or need, as personal satisfaction is often priceless.

Maintenance & Repair

Auto leasing often includes regular vehicle maintenance & repair. It’s important to remember this when projecting monthly costs of leasing vs ownership. No matter which make and model you choose, mechanic bills are an uncertain cost that can quickly add up. And for those of us who aren’t certified mechanics with a full toolset and hydraulic jack in the garage, leasing is likely the best option for peace of mind.

Investment vs Savings

Generally speaking, a new vehicle lease saves money in the short term with lower monthly payments, while buying gets you a long term investment, meaning full ownership of the value of the car at the time it is traded, sold, or paid-off. For best savings on a lease, avoid lease return fees for terminating the vehicle lease early, going over mileage, or putting on excessive wear and tear. For the best investment on a purchased/financed vehicle, you can pay it off quickly and also avoid excessive wear and mileage.
