Consider these reasons to buy and lease a new Nissan at Executive Nissan

There is a lot of misunderstanding when some of ourĀ  New Haven and Northford customers discuss their options for financing their new car, and it all seems to stem from the terms BUY vs. LEASE. These terms can sometimes be thrown around by other dealerships interchangeably, but they are quite different from one another. To help clear up the confusion, we have put together a quick guide to give you some reasons why leasing may be the best option for you, and why buying might be your best bet. Learn more about buying vs. leasing a new Nissan with us and choose the option best for your financial situation.

Buying vs. Leasing

When leasing, you are essentially renting the vehicle for a lower monthly payment, because instead of taking a loan out for the entire cost of the vehicle, plus interest, you are just taking a loan out for a fraction of the total vehicle price. Mileage restrictions apply, and you aren’t free to customize your car in any way you may choose to down the road, but you get the thrill of owning a new car every few years.

You may enjoy buying if you don’t mind the monthly payments being higher for a few years with the eventual payoff of having no loan after it has been satisfied. This allows you to customize your vehicle, but you also take a gamble when trading it in later if you choose to purchase a new model down the road.

Consider BUYING your new car if you:

  • Like the thought of eventually having no monthly car payment
  • Don’t mind the higher payments in favor of the eventual payoff
  • Are willing to take a chance with the resale value in the event that you decide to trade it in for something else down the road
  • Look forward to building equity by owning
  • Are a do-it-yourself type of person who loves to customize and accessorize your vehicle

You should LEASE your new car if you:

  • Don’t mind having a limit to the number of miles you can put on the vehicle during the lifetime of your lease
  • Enjoy the idea of having a new model every few years
  • Don’t have the money to put on a down payment
  • Think the lower monthly payment makes more sense for your situation
  • Are okay with the idea of not building equity in favor of renting the vehicle
  • Don’t plan to make any major customizations or changes to the vehicle during your lease
