Should I Buy or Lease a Car?

Man and Woman Signing Contract

Many Evergreen and Brewton drivers find themselves torn between leasing vs. buying a car. While car leasing offers tons of flexibility, buying a car offers its own set of unique financial benefits. So, should I buy or lease a car? Lee Motor Company is here to run through the pros and cons of each, so you can make your decision with total confidence.



Benefits of Car Leasing

If you want a shorter-term commitment, car leasing might be the perfect choice for you. The average car lease is around three years, so you have frequent opportunities to upgrade your car and try something new. However, you won’t build any equity and you won’t own the vehicle. Benefits of car leasing include:

  • Lowered Costs: You’ll only pay for the depreciation that occurs over the period of your contract, which means smaller monthly payments than a financing plan.
  • Flexibility: You’ll have a lot of different options when your lease is up. You can return your car and walk away, upgrade to a new vehicle, or even convert your lease into a loan plan.
  • Upgrades: If you want to experience the latest designs and technology, you can upgrade frequently with no strings attached if you lease your car.

Benefits of Car Financing

Though there are plenty of benefits to car leasing, auto loan financing is the most popular option around Atmore. Auto loan financing means that you take out a loan and gradually pay it off, building equity and working toward ownership. While this includes higher up-front costs, eventually you’ll be free from car payments completely. Here are some of the benefits of financing:

  • Ownership: Complete car ownership has tons of perks. You can modify the car as much as you’d like and drive it as much as you’d like.
  • Equity: Even before you have total ownership of the car, you’re gradually building equity – which benefits your credit score.
  • Selling: If you choose to sell your car in the future, you can make back thousands of dollars that you’ve invested into your car.
