Deciding whether to buy or lease can be a challenging decision. While buying your next car gives you the freedom to do customize and make changes, leasing allows you to get the latest and greatest model at an affordable price. As most drivers around Martinsville and Danville will come to find, there are several factors. So when you’re looking at new vehicles for sale, it’s worth exploring your options before deciding whether you should be financing or leasing.

Benefits of Leasing

When you lease, you are essentially borrowing your Nissan model for a predetermined period of time. This option is great for those who want the newest model without making many adjustments. When your lease term ends you return the vehicle and can upgrade to an even newer model. Some of the advantages of leasing include:

  • The Latest Features – Most leases last between 24 and 36 months, meaning that, when your lease ends, you can return the vehicle and swap it out for something newer.
  • Cost – When you lease, you will often find that the down payment is much lower than if you buy.

Benefits of Buying

Reidsville, NC drivers may find that the advantages of financing work better for them for a variety of reasons:

  • Customize – Since you’ll own the car, you can make whatever modifications you please. When you buy, you can swap out the stereo system, add a new coat of paint, or make any adjustments you want.
  • You Own It – You’re building equity with each payment you make. Whether your loan lasts 36, 48, or 60 months, you’ll own the car at the end of it.
