Buying vs. Leasing at Toyota of Plano


You’ve thought long and hard about which Toyota model you want to take home and now it’s time to consider your financing options. The decision is one that should be made to best fit your personal driving needs and there are positive and negative aspects to both so it is wise to weigh both options before making a final decision. We broke down what it means to buy or lease a vehicle and some pros and cons of each option to help make that decision a little easier.

Leasing gets you the vehicle you want and with a monthly payment that is much more affordable than buying. Leasing programs give you the freedom to drive a new car or truck every few years without the hassle of selling or trading in your vehicle. Pros to leasing a vehicle include lower monthly payments, low down payments, if any at all, no vehicle depreciation concerns. Leasing also gives you the option to purchase the vehicle at the end of the least term. The downside to leasing is that you don’t own the vehicle and have to return it at the end of the lease. Some cons to leasing also include higher insurance premiums, mileage restrictions, early termination charges if you want to end the least early and the inability to customize or modify the vehicle.

Purchasing a vehicle simply means no mileage limits, no end date for when you have to return your vehicle and no worrying about end of lease obligation. A positive element of buying a vehicle instead of leasing is that you own the vehicle and can keep it as long as you want. Other pros include no monthly payments after the vehicle is paid off, no mileage limits, the ability to modify or customize your vehicle, lower insurance costs and you can sell or trade in your vehicle at any time. There is a downside to purchasing a vehicle in that the monthly payments are higher compared to leading a vehicle. Buying also usually requires a large down payment and depreciation can diminish your vehicles resale value.
