Leasing vs Buying a Lincoln


Leasing vs. Buying A Lincoln: Know The Difference

Car buying nowadays can be stressful and challenging, leading customers to make rash decisions before researching all options. When purchasing a car, you pay for the entire value of it, regardless of how many miles are accumulated. On the other end of the spectrum, when leasing a car, you pay for the vehicle's depreciation throughout the lease term and are bound to certain aspects. However, regardless of what route you decide to go, Malouf Lincoln is here to help and make the process as simplistic as possible. Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with the tools to help you make the perfect choice while explaining the pros and cons of each option. So, continue reading to learn about the differences and find out which one will help you long-term.

Buying A Car

The most convenient purchasing option is buying a car, as it is the most straightforward process out of all of them. This means you maintain possession of the vehicle instead of leasing it for a few years. However, the main difference with this option is the upfront price. Searching through our used and certified pre-owned selection can provide more leeway if you find the buying cost too high when viewing new cars. The certified pre-owned vehicles offered at Malouf Lincoln undergo a rigorous 200-point vehicle inspection. Then they are awarded a comprehensive limited warranty, a vehicle history report, and 24/7 roadside assistance. We want our customers to trust the vehicle they purchased from us at Malouf Lincoln. If you buy a car with a loan, the price of monthly payments will typically be higher than leasing. However, the vehicle is officially yours once it is fully paid off. Listed below are additional benefits you can expect when buying a car.

  • The ability to sell or trade in the vehicle

  • No further payments at the end of your turn

  • The vehicle is yours to modify or customize as you like

  • No mileage limits

  • No wear-and-tear charges

Leasing A Car

Even though buying a car is the most conventional method, it does not always fit the customer's budget, which is why leasing is a growing trend. When leasing, you pay for the right to drive the vehicle for a fixed period. Usually, the customer will pay an initial amount to drive the car from the lot to cover a range of taxes and fees. Then, to cover the vehicle's depreciation cost, payments are made each month throughout the lease. Within the term, there is usually a restriction on the number of miles you can drive in total, and you have to return the car in excellent condition to avoid additional fees. Listed below are other benefits if you choose to lease a vehicle.

  • Lower repair costs

  • Option to buy the car at the end of the lease

  • Lower monthly payments

  • Less money down

  • Manufacture warranty options
