When it comes to financing a car, there are many options available, and it can be confusing to decide which one is best for you. At AutoMasters, Middle Tennessee’s trusted Buy Here, Pay Here dealership, we want to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible. In this post, we’ll go over the two most common car financing options: loans and leases, and explain the pros and cons of each.
- Pros: When you take out a loan to purchase a car, you’ll own the vehicle outright once the loan is paid off. You can also customize the car to your liking, as you will have full ownership of the car. Also, you can sell the car whenever you want.
- Cons: With a loan, you’ll have higher monthly payments and a longer repayment period, usually between 3-7 years. Also, you’ll be responsible for all repairs and maintenance costs once the warranty expires.
- Pros: Leasing a car typically has lower monthly payments than buying one. This is because you’re only paying for the portion of the car’s value that you use during the lease term. Also, you don’t have to worry about reselling the car when you’re done with the lease.
- Cons: When you lease a car, you don’t own it, and you’ll have to return it to the dealership at the end of the lease term. You’ll also have to pay penalties if you go over the agreed mileage or if you return the car with excessive wear and tear.
