Leasing a Car

Leasing resembles renting in that you drive your car for a limited amount of time. A typical lease extends anywhere from two to five years, depending on your lease arrangement. This gives you just enough time to enjoy the car, and then you can find a new one.

When you lease a car, it’s going to be a new vehicle with all the latest tech and upgraded materials. If you like to live in luxury, get the premier trim of the vehicle you choose. Plus, this vehicle will feature the most modern technology, whether it’s advanced safety systems, elaborate convenience and comfort factors, or increased connectivity.

You won’t have to concern yourself with every maintenance task or repair either. Since you’re driving a new car, it provides you with dealership and factory warranties to cover service issues. This lets you relax in your car and enjoy the ride ahead.

Buying a Car

Buying a car means you get a sense of ownership and build equity from keeping up with your loan. Travel for as many miles as you can hold out because you’re not limited by mileage restrictions. If you want to add accessories or customize your car with a design, you’re able to do so.

You don’t need to give up your car that you’ve become accustomed to, either. You can get attached and consider it your own. It will become the road companion you’ve dreamed about, and even when it ages, it’s still yours. Part of the fun is creating memories that you’ll reflect upon even when you’re driving a new car.

Go Forth With Financing

Now that you’re more familiar with the differences of leasing and buying, which would you choose? Our finance team can talk to you about how to go about either route or explain anything that you may not understand. Financing can be the most important aspect of the car-buying process, so making the right decision is paramount. Before you choose, make sure you fill out the online finance application.

Lease vs Buy: Consider Your Options

Not only do you want to be satisfied with your car, but you also want to be satisfied with your financial arrangement. LaFontaine CDJR of Lansing can guide Lansing, East Lansing, and Williamston shoppers through either of these versatile choices.

Consider both options, then come down to our dealership for a test drive.
