Should I Buy or Lease a New Vehicle?

 

The decision to buy or lease a car at Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Bowie is never an easy one. No matter if you're in the market for one of our new or pre-owned cars for sale, there's plenty to consider when it comes to financing it and taking it home. Luckily, our friendly Jeep dealers in MD are always on hand to answer any questions you have and help you make the best decision to suit your family's lifestyle and budget.

When You Should Lease a Car or Truck

Most car shoppers we meet at our Dodge dealership near Crofton, MD already know the biggest benefit of leasing over buying: the price. When you decide to lease a vehicle, you're only technically paying for the portion of the car used during your lease term. That can translate to thousands of dollars in savings. For this reason, leasing is usually a good option for college students and other people on tight budgets.

Another bonus for leasers is that they can simply return the vehicle to us at the conclusion of their term. This is a lot easier than the hassle of trying to sell your used car to a private buyer when you no longer want it. Plus, when your lease ends, you can look around our showroom and pick out a new Dodge Charger or Jeep Wrangler to take home instead.

When You Should Buy a New Vehicle in Maryland

If you have enough money saved up to make a big down payment, then buying might be preferable. The experts in our financing center will tell you that buying the car outright gives you far more control over how you can use the vehicle. Most lease agreements put restrictions on the number of miles you can put on the vehicle, for instance. If you have a lengthy daily commute, that mileage limit might be an issue. Similarly, when you lease, you're not usually allowed to customize the car. Buying gives you the freedom to add fancy rims or switch up the paint color whenever you get the urge.
