• Buying or Leasing: Which Should You Choose?

    When you’re looking to get a new vehicle for your Madison commutes, you might be asking what the best financial path to take is: should you buy or lease your next car? While there are benefits to both leasing and financing, the decision is based on what you can afford, your needs, and what you want. If you’re having a hard time deciding, then take a look at the benefits of both leasing and financing before contacting our Finance Department at Burtness Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.

Benefits of Buying

  • Full Vehicle Ownership: Financing a vehicle means that you own it, and you are free to modify it as you please and add whatever accessories you would like to it.
  • Less Cost Over Time: Though buying a new car is more expensive initially, thanks to total ownership, the vehicle becomes less expensive to own the longer you have it.
  • Financing Options: The car financing process is usually open to those without perfect, or great, credit scores. You can also refinance your loan for a lower interest rate and monthly payments.
  • Ability to Sell: Ready for something new? Since you’re not committed to a lease agreement, you can opt to sell your vehicle whenever you choose.
  • No Mileage Restrictions: If you’re driving your vehicle around the greater Milwaukee area, you may want to consider buying. Without any limits to your mileage, you can drive as much as you want.

Benefits of Leasing

  • Lower Payments: When you lease a vehicle, your monthly payments will be much lower than if you were to finance.
  • Lower Sales Tax: In most states, leasing a vehicle can drastically lower sales tax you pay. In some areas, you only have to pay tax on the amount you put forth in the down payment and for the monthly payments.
  • Trade-Ins: When your lease is up, you can simply trade up for another vehicle. Head to your local Whitewater dealership, pay any remaining fees, and drive away in a new model.
  • Great Coverage: With leasing, you’re privy to excellent warranty coverage. Maintenance is no longer a hassle either, as it’s usually covered under your warranty, so long as you don’t go over the mileage limit.
  • Options: Leasing lets you stay current in the newest models with the most up-to-date tech. You’ll have tons of options and will be able to find the perfect model and features that fit your lifestyle.
  • High Approval Rate: It is much easier to get approved for a lease, even if your credit is less than ideal.
