Buying vs Leasing

couple in carFor most people who are considering leasing a vehicle instead of buying it, they are at certain stages in their life that it would make more sense to lease. If you decide to lease your vehicles, then you will have a lower monthly payment, but will essentially never get away from making car payments. One of the upsides about leasing is that you can always get the newest vehicles for an affordable price.

Most lease contracts are for 36 months with a mile limit of 36,000 miles. For many drivers, this limit is completely fine, but for others who travel, it may be an issue. It is also important to keep the vehicle in great shape if you are leasing it, so it is not always a good option for parents with young children.

When buying a new vehicle, you will be stuck with the higher monthly payments, will also have the ability to pay the vehicle off and stop the monthly payments. Buying the vehicle also gives drivers the freedom to drive as much as they want without having to worry about going over their mileage limit. When you own the vehicle, you are also able to make customizations, unlike if you were to lease.
