Should I Buy or Lease?

You’ve done your research on what car best fits your Delaware driving needs, and you’re excited to bring home your new 2020 Kia Soul. Your next big decision is lease vs. buying. Both have their benefits, and it’s a very individual choice based on your finances and driving needs. Take a look at the basic difference between buying and leasing a Kia at Byers Kia. 

Purchase Perks

  • The car belongs to you for as long as you like. You don’t have to return the car to the dealership. 
  • There are no mileage limits when you own your Kia. Road trips from Worthington to just about anywhere are possible without worrying about going over your mileage limit. 
  • Buying gives you more customization options. Make this car your own. 
  • Sell your car or trade it in if you’d like, whenever you’d like. It belongs to you, and you’ll get the cash or trade-in value if you sell.
  • Financing for purchasing a car is more straightforward than leasing. You can even apply for financing online
  • Over time, because you will likely keep a car you own longer than one you lease, you will save money.

Lease Benefits 

  • Expect a lower down payment and smaller monthly payments when you lease a Kia. Lease specials are also available. 
  • Marion sales taxes will also be lower since you don’t own the car outright.
  • Once you’ve leased your first vehicle, it’s relatively simple to trade it for your next lease. Just pay any remaining fees on your old car and choose your next lease. 
  • You aren’t stuck with the negotiating involved in trading or selling your old leased vehicle.
  • Stay up-to-date with new models when you lease. Most leases last a couple of years, making it easy to upgrade often. 
  • As long as you’re under your mileage limit, your warranty coverage will protect your car. 
  • It’s easier to get approved for a lease than it is for a car loan. Even if your credit has taken a hit, you can still drive a reliable new car.
