Differences Between Buying and Leasing Your Vehicle

Our Kia dealership looks to make the process of buying a new or used car simple, and oftentimes the trickiest part of car buying is financing. Well, we're even ready to help in that regard! We have an auto finance department with a helpful team and tons of resources to make financing you Kia free of hassles. Those resources include the info on this page that highlights the differences between buying and leasing vehicles as well as some suggestions on which auto finance option may suit you better!

When Should You Lease a New Kia?

Leasing a new car is attractive to many right off the bat because of the affordable monthly payments that you'll see offered. Leasing is the more affordable vehicle financing option in the short term as it is more like renting a car from us. We offer different new Kia lease terms and lengths, and that flexibility is another benefit.

Once your lease is over, you can just turn the model in and start up a new lease with us, or you can buy the model if you enjoyed it! Leasing also puts limits on what you can do to the car, no bumper stickers, and how many miles you can put on each year. So, if you want to call a car yours, drive it how you want, and modify it, buying may be the better option, but if you want to build credit and enjoy a new car with more affordable payments, leasing is the way to go.

When Should You Buy a New Kia?

We mentioned some of the benefits of owning a car above. You'll be able to call it yours, personalize it in any way you see fit, and drive it as much as you want. Buying a new Kia is also a smart financial decision in the long run as once your loan is over, you won't be making more payments, and you can always sell it! But, buying a new car will have more upfront cost, especially with poor credit, and some drivers dread the selling process when they want to move on to a newer car. Of course, a used car loan can get you a terrific vehicle with more affordable payments!
