Buy vs Lease Nissan Glendale Heights IL

As far as new vehicles go, you basically have two options...unless you’re one in a million and manage to win a free car in a drawing or radio show. The rest of us though will be faced with the decision to either buy or lease. At Glendale Nissan, our finance team will be able to better help you with your unique situation, but down below you will be able to find the major advantages and disadvantages when debating the options to buy vs lease a new Nissan in Glendale Heights, Il.

When it does come time to decide between buying or leasing, there isn’t necessarily a right or wrong answer, but one choice certainly could be more economical and the smarter option between the two. Again, this will greatly depend on your personal life and financial situation. In a nutshell, we generally steer drivers who will be putting a lot of miles on their vehicle, are looking to customize it, or build equity towards purchasing. We would suggest leasing to drivers who don’t travel more than 15,000 miles in a year and plan on picking out something brand new in two or three hours.

Finance or a Lease a Nissan at Glendale Nissan

The route to finance or to lease a new Nissan vehicle each comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages compared to the other.

Advantages to Purchase: Drivers who plan on financing a new Nissan can always expect competitive rates as well as quick credit responses. Nissan has devised a number of financing benefits to buying a new or certified pre-owned Nissans that include the following: typically when purchasing, these vehicles carry lower limits for auto insurance compared to a leased vehicle and you have the opportunity to sell, trade, or transfer your vehicle title at any point in time.

Another one of the greatest aspects of buying a new vehicle, rather than leasing, is that you won’t have to worry about mileage limitations or having to pay for general wear-and-tear. For families with younger children or pets, we tend to recommend buying. (Also, a new car now makes for a fantastic and safe hand-me-down later.)

Advantages to Lease: Drivers who plan on leasing a new Nissan can take advantage of programs that range from 24-60 months. If you’re someone who takes excellent care of a vehicle and don’t travel more than 15,000 miles a year, leasing may be an excellent option for you; especially if you enjoy driving a brand new vehicle every two to three years.

Leasing is the ideal opportunity to try out all of the latest technology in a premium vehicle that typically wouldn’t be within your budget. Also, if the vehicle is being used for business, there are tax benefits for certain cases. Once the end of your lease arrives, you will be given the opportunity to return it, exchange it for something else, or buy it if you've fallen in love with driving it.

To learn more about your buying and leasing options, we would like to welcome you here to Glendale Nissan to meet with our finance team. Without pushing or pressuring, they would be happy to answer any questions and help point you in the right direction.
