Buying vs. Leasing, A Look At The Pros and Cons

There are important financial differences between buying and leasing a new car in Long Island City. When you buy a new vehicle, you’ll be obligated to make payments until the entire worth of the car is paid off, unlike in leasing.

When you lease a car, you make payments until your lease duration is over, then, you can continue making payments on the vehicle you have or upgrade to a new vehicle. Between the two options, there are plenty of benefits to buying or leasing a vehicle in Astoria. Make sure you do your research, then learn more about Volkswagen leasing to make the choice that’s best for you.

Benefits to Financing A New Car

Owning the vehicle means you don’t have to watch out for mileage limits or pay extra for minor damage including scratches or upholstery stains. When it’s time for a new vehicle, you can sell or trade it in. Some other benefits include:

  • You can fully customize your new VW because you will be the owner
  • You’ll have the option to sell your VW after your payment schedule is finished
  • No lease contract, instead you have a plan arranged with a bank or financing institution
