Both have their own benefits, and our team is ready to work with you to determine with route makes the most sense for your personal needs and preferences. Curious about what each path entails?

Buying a New Car

If you want to keep your car and enjoy the freedoms of ownership, then buying might be the best choice for you. Financing a new car means that once it's paid off, it's yours. Ownership comes with some unique perks. For example, you're free to customize your vehicle, you can drive it as much as you like without worrying about fees for mileage or wear and tear, and you can trade it towards something else if you decide that you want something new.

While buying is initially more expensive than leasing, you won't have to keep making monthly payments once your car is paid off. So, if you want to play for keeps and enjoy the freedom to do with your car what you will, then we recommend exploring our financing options.

Leasing a New Car

Leasing is popular if the idea of lower monthly payments and more opportunities to drive new cars appeals to you. Typically, leasing a car is less expensive per month than financing, so it's a great way to save money per month and get more car for less. Since leases generally last a few years, you can choose to transition to a new car at lease-end and keep up with the latest tech and safety features.

The trade-off is that when you lease, you have a mileage limit, and you're expected to return your car in more or less the same condition it was in when you leased it, barring normal wear and tear. So, if you don't plan on driving your car too hard, then leasing might be a good fit.
