Leasing vs Buying a New Car

Leasing vs Buying a New Car

Why Lease a New Car?

If you like to drive newer, safer, more reliable cars, but prefer not commit to a big down payment every 3-4 years, and also do not travel an enormous amount yearly, then a new car lease should be better for you. Leasing is ideal for those who would prefer to avert the annoyance of selling and buying every time they want to drive a new vehicle.

Why Buy a New Car?

Contrarily, if you prefer long term relationships with a larger sense of commitment and ownership, then buying might be what’s right for you. Car-buying is typically best for drivers who don’t mind driving the same vehicle for more than five years or even until it is no longer fit for the road.

Lease vs Buy: Which One Is Right for You?

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

Buying: Ownership vs Leasing

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

pros and cons of leasing vs financing a new car

Monthly Payments

Car lease payments are often less expensive compared to auto loan and car financing payments as the standard lease contract is more-or-less renting with the option to purchase at the end of your lease term. Keep in mind when leasing that you’ll need a good credit score, and will be asked to carry collision and comprehensive insurance, although the same can be said for the lower rate auto loans. Though it might likely add to your monthly payments, it is also smart to select a model with the features you need or want, as personal satisfaction is often priceless.

Maintenance & Repair

Auto leasing often includes regular vehicle maintenance & repair. It is important to remember this when calculating monthly costs of leasing vs ownership. No matter which make and model you choose, mechanic bills are an unpredictable cost that can rapidly 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

In general, a new car, truck, or SUV lease saves money in the short term with more affordable monthly payments, while buying earns you a long term investment, meaning absolute ownership of the value of the car or truck 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 your best investment on a purchased/financed vehicle, you can pay it off in a shorter term and also avoid excessive wear and mileage.

I needed my annual service on my 2018 Jaguar XE (a wonderful automobile) and this company treated me very well. Scheduling was convenient, they provided a loaner car, and completed all the work before I expected. My car came back clean and ready for another year of enjoyable driving. Also, John and Andrew, the service advisors, answered all my questions thoroughly. Thank you, Jaguar Albuquerque.

Due to COVID-19, I was forced to start my purchase online and could not have had a better experience, due to the no haggle pricing and attention to detail that Danny @ Albuquerque JLR provided.

Rachel in sales was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. We never felt pressured, and they were able to work with our credit union. Overall a good buying experience except for the 20th-century negotiation part. I wish all car dealerships would get on board with no-haggle pricing! Recommendation? Well it's not like you have a choice if you're looking for a new Jag in Albuquerque -- but apart from the haggling, they're a great dealership.
