There seem to be two feuding camps when it comes to buying vs. leasing a vehicle, but neither one is necessarily better than the other. Which option is better depends entirely on you and your unique situation, and Wiesner of Huntsville is here to help you make the right decision.
Buying is a good choice for people who are ready to make a long-term commitment to a car, can afford larger payments, and want total control of their vehicle. Buying, as the anti-lease camp will tell you, is a better investment, but do you even want to make a big investment at this point in your life? Then again, if you’re a traveler, you should definitely buy a car, since leased vehicles have mileage restrictions.
Leasing is better for people who aren’t ready to make a 72-month commitment to a higher payment. Sure, you can trade it in, but if you’re going to plan to trade it in after a couple years, just go with a lease. You’ll have lower payments, which can save you money in the long run.
Leasing is also a great option for technology fans who want to keep up with the latest automotive features, since you’ll get to trade it in after three years and get something brand new (if you wanted to). But if you’d rather pay more now and pay nothing in six years, go with buying. Either way, they're both great options.
