Buying Vs Leasing in Macon

When it comes to buying or leasing a car, the options can be confusing. To help you make an informed decision, we have provided the  information below. We hope you find it informative and useful.

When you buy the new or used car you pay for the entire cost of the vehicle. When you lease the new or used car, you pay for only a portion of the vehicle's cost, which is the part you use during the time you are driving it.

Which is Better: to Lease or Buy? We'll Help You Find the Right Option for Your Situation Here at Youmans Chevrolet

Typical car buyers tend to spend a lot of time figuring out which new vehicle will suit them and their situation best. "Do I want the convenience of an SUV or the fuel efficiency of a compact car?" Or "Does buying a truck make sense now, or after the kids are older?" It's important to ask these types of questions. But even drivers who know exactly which type or even model they want most, must still weigh another decision: "Do I lease or buy?"

At Youmans Chevrolet, we're happy to help you find that just-right vehicle, and the auto financing that you'll need to bring it home with you. If you aren't yet sure whether or an auto loan or a lease will work better for you, we can help with that decision, too. Let's look more closely at what the benefits are to both buying and leasing a new vehicle.

"What are the benefits of buying a vehicle?"

  • When you buy a new vehicle, you can make any modifications that you'd like, at any time you'd like.
  • Drive as many miles as you want. There is no need to keep track of your mileage or worry about going over any mileage limits.
  • Want to sell or trade-in your vehicle? You can do this easily at any time you see fit.
  • Once your loan is paid off, you own your car free and clear. No monthly payment sounds pretty good, doesn't it?

"What are the benefits of leasing a vehicle?"

  • When you lease a vehicle, you can typically choose a more expensive model while also enjoying a less of a monthly payment.
  • You'll usually require less of a down payment when you lease instead of buy a new car.
  • Keep it simple with a lease. When your lease period ends, you can simply return your vehicle, trade-in your vehicle for the newest model, or in some cases, extend your lease period.
  • Most or all repairs are still covered by the manufacturer's warranty when you lease. That means little-to-no out of pocket expenses for you. 

Those are some of the most important distinctions between leasing and buying a new vehicle. We'd be happy to tell you more when you visit Youmans Chevrolet. We're located conveniently in Macon, GA.
