Should I Lease or Finance My Next Vehicle?

Leasing vs Financing—Ask the Experts

If you’re having a tough time deciding whether to buy a new Volkswagen or start a Volkswagen lease, come into Vista Volkswagen Pompano Beach and let us help you figure it out. The friendly experts in our Finance Department are trained in the finer points of automobile financing and would be more than happy to talk to you about your next vehicle.

There are many benefits to both buying a car and leasing a car, and we can help you sort through them all. Our professionals can assist you in better understanding what’s involved in buying or leasing a vehicle, and which would be the best option for you depending on your situation and needs.

The Benefits of Volkswagen Lease Deals

One big benefit of leasing is that you’ll have lower monthly payments than if you were buying. That’s because they’re based on the depreciation value of the vehicle at the end of the lease, not the new car price. This is great if you like to drive newer vehicles, but don’t want large monthly payments or a big down payment. You may have some mileage limits, but if you don’t need to travel too far too frequently, a lease might be a solid option for you.

Leasing is also great if you like to drive the latest model Volkswagens. You can choose the length of your lease—long term or shorter term—and when it’s up, you simply return the car. You can trade it for the latest model, or try a new model altogether. You can also choose to extend your lease or decide to buy your vehicle off the lease.

The Benefits of Buying a Volkswagen

The great thing about buying a new or used car at Vista Volkswagen Pompano Beach is that when your loan term is finished, you own your vehicle outright—you don’t have to give it back. That means that the minute you drive the car off the lot, you’re free to add accessories like roof racks or trailer hitches, upgrade your tires, and put as many miles on it as you please.

When your car loan is paid off and you choose to sell the car, the money you get for it is yours. You can use it to buy a new vehicle, or do whatever you wish. If you think buying a new vehicle is the best option for you, come in and let one of our salespeople show you the latest lineup of new Volkswagens or our large selection of used and Certified Pre-Owned vehicles.

Visit the Vista Volkswagen Finance Center

Beyond buying vs leasing, there are many other decisions to be made when financing a car, truck, or SUV. That’s why we encourage you to come in and talk to one of the experts in our Finance Center. They can make phrases like lease terms, leasing company, payment plus tax, and dealer fees understandable.

We also have many informative online tools to help you with the buying or leasing process. There’s an online Trade-in Calculator that will help you figure out what your current vehicle is worth. This can give you a good idea of how much you can put down towards your next vehicle.

You can also approximate your monthly payments with our online Calculate Payment Tool. You simply put in information such as the vehicle you’d like, your potential interest rate, and your down payment amount, and it will estimate your car loan amount and monthly payments.
