If you want to drive newer, safer, more reliable vehicles, prefer not make a large down payment every few years, and also do not drive an exorbitant amount annually, then a new car lease may be better for you. Leasing is intended for those who would prefer to avert the hassle of selling and buying every time they want to drive a new car or SUV.
Conversely, if you prefer long term relationships with a greater sense of commitment and ownership, then buying should be what’s better for you. Car-buying is typically best for drivers who do not mind driving the same car for more than five years or even until it is no longer suitable for the freeway.
Being aware of the pros, cons, and overall benefits of leasing vs buying a car or SUV is critical. Be sure to examine factors like potential savings, vehicle ownership, monthly payments, and repair costs when calculating the best new vehicle financing type for you.
When it comes to vehicle financing, new car or SUV ownership absolutely comes with many well-known advantages, most associated with outright ownership of the car. You may not realize, but, there are also a few great benefits of leasing, as well. It’s essential to consider all financial aspects including term length, down payment, monthly payments, buyout payments, 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 optimal choice between leasing and buying a new car or SUV.
Car or SUV lease payments are often times less expensive compared to auto loan and car financing payments as the typical lease structure is pretty much renting with the option to purchase at the final payment of your lease term. Consider when leasing that you’re going to need a healthy credit score, and will be required to carry collision and comprehensive insurance, although the same can be said for the best rate auto loans. Though it can likely add to monthly payments, it’s also smart to choose a model with the features you need or want, as personal satisfaction is often priceless.
Auto leases often include regular vehicle maintenance & repair. It is important to keep this in mind when calculating monthly costs of ownership vs leasing. Regardless of what make and model you buy, mechanic bills are an uncertain cost that can rapidly add up. And for those of us who are not certified auto mechanics with a hydraulic jack and full toolset in the garage, leasing might be the best option for peace of mind.
In general, a new car or SUV lease saves money in the short term with lower monthly payments, while buying earns you a long term investment, meaning outright ownership of the value of the car or SUV 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 maximum investment on a purchased/financed vehicle, you can pay it off quickly and also avoid excessive wear and mileage.

Great professional service, when I explained what service my vehicle needs, representative listened and provided the solutions. Attention to detail is important and very aware of my time as I have busy schedule. Work was completed in a timely manner. Incredible customer service.
I have an awesome experience today at 8am for an oil change and a recall services…A shout out to Brian Fowler in the services department… very friendly, acknowledging and honest. He’ll take care your needs and doesn’t try to up-sales anything… also Ms. Dolly providing great and safe shuttles service. Thank you for taking care of me.
Wayne was great to work with on selecting our new Atlas. Although the car was not available in their inventory, he continued to look at upcoming shipments until he found us the perfect vehicle. He kept us updated on the status of the vehicle via email or text and was very responsive to our questions. Then their finance department found us a loan beating the rate at our own credit union! Thank to the team at Alamo VW.
Service department is very professional from my own experience. I made an appointment online to have my VW 30,000 mile maintenance service. As I entered service department I was immediately greeted and waited upon within minutes for check in. Checkin was easy and I wanted to wait for my vehicle instead of having them take me back home, which they offer as part of their service. ( very cool!!) My vehicle was ready in timely manner within two hours 🙂 my service rep came to gather me up and check out which was efficient and professional. Okay so I did purchase my vehicle ...
