Convenience of Leasing vs Buying

Buying a car is such a hassle. You have to deal with smarmy salesmen and difficult financing people. You tie up huge amounts of money with large down payments. Your loan lasts much longer than your warranty does and then you have to worry about expensive repairs. After the car is paid off its value is low due to depreciation. When you want to get a new car you have to search for someone to sell it to or risk trading it in for much less than its worth. It's no wonder people are increasingly turning to leasing as an option.

  • You are driving a car only while under warranty so you don't have to worry about paying for big repair bills
  • When the lease is up, you can return it to the dealer and get a brand new car
  • You don't have to worry about selling the vehicle. You drop it off at the dealer and walk away
