If you’re ready to upgrade your daily Clarkston drives and weekend adventures with a new vehicle from John Bowman Chevrolet, Inc., you’ll want to consider your financial options. Should I buy or lease? What are the benefits of choosing a lease vs. buying? In the following guide, we’ll outline the advantages of both buying and leasing so you can choose the best route based on your budget and current financial situation.

Benefits of Buying

When you buy a vehicle outright or finance your new vehicle from John Bowman Chevrolet, Inc., there are many advantages for Waterford drivers. These include:

  • Full Ownership— The vehicle is completely yours. You can customize, modify, and accessorize, paint, maintain and more as you please!
  • Selling Ability— You can sell your vehicle whenever and however you choose.
  • Financing and Refinancing Options— If your financial situation changes throughout the course of driving that car, you can refinance to lower your interest rate and monthly payments.
  • Less Cost Overall— While your initial money down will be more expensive when you buy, over time the vehicle you own outright will be less expensive.
  • No Mileage Restrictions— Put as many miles on the odometer as you wish. No lease means no contractual agreement to adhere to within mileage limits!

Benefits of Leasing

Leasing means you don’t technically own the vehicle as you do in the case of buying it. This can be advantageous for some Lake Orion drivers as it relieves some of the responsibilities that car-buyers acquire:

  • Guaranteed Coverage: If you stay within your mileage limits, your warranty coverage outlined in your lease agreement will give you peace of mind in the event of any issues.
  • Great Options: Leasing presents you with the newest model years featuring new tech, convenience, and innovations and simple trade-ins after your lease term is complete!
  • High Approval Rate: While financing a car may require jumping through hoops to get approved for a loan, leasing a car comes with fewer obstacles and thus, higher approval rates!
  • Lower Payments: Whether it’s monthly payments or down payments, when you lease a vehicle those costs will be much lower than buying.
  • Less Sales Tax: Though this depends on your state, Grand Blanc area drivers can bet on less sales tax with a lease vs. buying.
