Leasing vs Buying: Which Is Right for You?

Have you ever been stuck in LA traffic and found yourself wondering, “Are there new cars near me that I can look at while someone helps me choose between leasing and buying?” If you have, head over to Keyes Audi to check out our new car inventory so we can help you decide whether leasing or buying is the right move for you. The choice is a big one and our talented, experienced sales and finance experts will make sure you make the right one.

When You Should Lease

Reasons to lease at a glance:

  • Smaller down payment
  • Lower monthly payments
  • No long-term commitment

If you’re thinking about leasing a 2018 Audi vehicle like the 2018 Audi Q7 or the 2018 Audi A6, you should know that leasing means you’re essentially renting a car for a set number of months. Leases often last for 36 months or so, which means they don’t involve a long-term commitment. This appeals to many motorists, especially those who love having the latest features.

As an Audi dealer serving Woodland Hills, CA, we can tell you that lessees typically enjoy smaller monthly payments compared to people who buy. While that’s the case, lessees must maintain their leased vehicle in good condition and they can only drive their leased car up to a certain number of miles every year. If they violate those terms, they’ll have to pay a penalty when their lease expires.

When You Should Buy

While leasing certainly has its benefits, it isn’t for everyone. If you drive a lot every year, you’ll probably want to buy a vehicle. Even pets who are extremely well behaved will get muddy paws occasionally and shed. If you love to travel with your pets, you may want to purchase an automobile. As mentioned, you’re effectively renting an automobile when you lease a car. If you want to own a valuable capital asset, you’ll want to buy a vehicle instead of leasing one.
