Lease vs. Finance

Alfa Romeos

When in the market for a new Alfa Romeo Stelvio or Giulia, Puyallup drivers can choose to either lease or buy. While buying a car was the way to go in the past, today leasing is becoming more popular. Before you decide, the financing experts at Alfa Romeo of Tacoma have broken down the advantages and disadvantages of each to help Lakewood drivers make the right decision.

Buying a Vehicle

There are a variety of benefits car owners can enjoy, including:

  • No maximum mileage limit
  • Ability to sell the car whenever you want
  • Freedom to make changes to your car
  • Using your vehicle as a trade in

As a car owner, you may face a few disadvantages as well, including:

  • Responsibility for repairs
  • Depreciation in the value of your car
  • Higher maintenance costs as the car ages

Leasing a Vehicle

Due to high lease-end residual values relative to MSRP, luxury car leases provide high value and offer many benefits. Such benefits include:

  • No trade-in difficulty
  • Getting a new car every few years
  • Less repairs needed
  • Lease offers and lease deals provided by dealerships like Alfa Romeo of Tacoma

While there are many perks to leasing a vehicle, there are a few disadvantages as well. These disadvantages include:

  • Maximum mileage limit
  • Little freedom to make changes to your car
  • Chance of excessive wear and tear charges
  • Not owning the car at the end of the lease
