Buying vs. Leasing Your Next New Car

If you’re thinking of replacing your old clunker with a shiny new car, you may be trying to decide which is the better option: Buy or lease? That depends on a number of factors including how you plan to use your car and what your budget will allow. To help explain the different choices available, we’ve created this quick primer for our Hereford, Pampa, and Canyon neighbors. Look over the pros and cons of leasing or buying your new car and, when you know which one is right for you, come see us at Brown Automotive Group for a great deal on your next car.

Pros and Cons of Buying

There are many reasons why financing your next new car might be a good choice. Buying a car means you own it and can modify it as you see fit. Additionally, you won’t pay extra fees if your commute takes you beyond Pampa and Hereford regularly. Owning a car also means that, eventually, the contract will be paid off and you can choose to keep the car payment free, sell it, or even give it away.

Of course, buying also usually requires a larger down payment and larger monthly payments. And should something go wrong, you’re responsible for the cost after the warranty expires, so it isn’t a perfect choice for everyone.

Pros and Cons of Leasing

Leasing your new car can save you money immediately with low- or no-down payment offers as well as long-term with lower payments since lease contracts are calculated based on the depreciated value of the vehicle at the end of the lease term. And, because your lease will likely expire before your warranty does, if something goes wrong, it should be covered. As an added benefit, if you always lease, you always get to drive a new car.

There are cons to leasing as well. Drivers who exceed the lease’s mileage limitations or cause damage to the car may face stiff penalties and, because you don’t really own the car, you won’t be able to make any modifications or add new equipment.
