Should I Buy or Lease?

Man Holds Car Door Handle



Many drivers stop by from Birmingham and Hoover asking, “Should I buy or lease my car?” The answer depends on your driving needs and budget. While some prefer the flexibility and shorter commitment of a lease, others prefer the long-term savings and freedom of a financed vehicle. Read our lease vs. buying guide to get started:

Why Buy?

  • No Mileage Limitations: Want to take the scenic route around Tuscaloosa? There are no mileage restrictions when you buy a car, so take as many road trips as you’d like.
  • Ownership Perks: While a lease contract may include certain limitations on cosmetic and mechanical alterations, your financed car does not. Feel free to do whatever you’d like!
  • Customization: From spoilers to body kits, you can customize the appearance of your car to your heart’s content. Take a look at our parts department and pick out a few accessories!
  • Ability to Sell: When you own your vehicle, you have the option to sell for the price of your choice whenever you’d like to whomever you’d like.
  • Financing Flexibility: Not only is financing a car less money over time, but it also tends to be more straightforward of a process than a lease. Plus, you can always refinance to get a better rate in the future.

Why Lease?

  • Lower Costs Up Front: Everything from monthly payments to your down payment tends to be less expensive for a leased vehicle, which means you can either save more money or upgrade to a nicer option.
  • Trade-In: No need to worry about selling your car and finding a buyer. Simply trade-in your vehicle when your lease contract is done and pick out your brand new car.
  • Warranty: Your lease contract is typically the same length as your bumper-to-bumper warranty, which means you are protected against issues you encounter on the road.
  • Vehicle Options: No need to stick with the same car for years and years. Leasing is a shorter-term contract, so you can easily upgrade to the latest and greatest technology when your term is up.
  • High Approval Rate: Getting approved for a lease is usually a little easier than getting approved for a loan, even if you have no or poor credit.
