Buy or Lease - We'll help you decide


Buying and Leasing have great benefits but which is right for you? We'll help you decide. Whether you buy or lease we're committed to delivering excellent service and value.

Ownership
  • Lease
    You pay for the use of the vehicle for the term of lease. Upon completion of the lease, you must return the vehicle, unless you choose to exercise the option of purchasing it.
    Contact Your Dealer

  • Buy
    Once you have completed the terms of your contract, you own the vehicle, free and clear.

Payments
  • Lease
    Monthly lease payments are usually lower since you are only paying for the value of the vehicle during the term of the lease.
    Contact Your Dealer
  • icon-payment
  • Buy
    Because you are paying the full purchase price for the vehicle, and each payment goes toward building equity in your vehicle, monthly payments tend to be higher.

Maintenance
  • Lease
    Most lease terms end before a manufacturer's warranty expires. While regular maintenance such as oil changes and tire rotations are necessary and required per the terms of your lease agreement, costs are minimal.

    Ownership means you have no lease-end obligations regarding maintenance. You are free to determine when, where, and how you care for your vehicle.
