Should I Buy or Lease?

If you’re shopping for a Kia vehicle in Henderson, you know you have two options when it comes to your new car: buying (also called financing) or leasing. Both have their pros and cons, but we hear from lots of Boulder City drivers who are still unsure: Should I buy or lease? It’s a great question because the answer isn’t one-size-fits-all. Circumstances, as well as personal taste, will factor in as you decide on the right path.

Read our guide below to compare the benefits of a lease vs. buying a new Kia vehicle for sale in Henderson, and then browse our 2020 inventory to explore popular models like the Kia Seltos!

Benefits of Buying

If I expect to log a lot of miles, should I buy or lease? Drivers with long commutes, or those who take frequent long work trips by car, often ask if leasing is worth their while. To answer this question, consider the restrictions you’ll face with a lease, vs. buying your vehicle:

  • No Mileage Restrictions –Leased vehicle can’t be driven over a set mileage amount. That’s fine if you drive mostly short and moderate distances around Boulder City, but will be an issue if you often travel between cities.
  • Full Customization — Whether you’re a gearhead or you love expressing your personal style, buying gives you the freedom to add endless custom accessories and extras. By contrast, custom options are limited for leased vehicles.
  • Sell Anytime — Owning your vehicle means you’re free to sell anytime you wish, without waiting for a lease term to end.
  • Bad Credit Financing — Drivers with less-than-perfect credit scores have more options when it comes to financing. Buying gives you the option to refinance your loan to get lower interest rates and lower monthly payments. 
  • Save Money Over Time — While buying may cost you more upfront, you save money over the course of your loan as you make progress paying it off. In fact, your car becomes less expensive the longer you own it.

Benefits of Leasing

What’s the biggest advantage of leasing? Your payments will be lower on a lease vs. buying your vehicle. Other releasing benefits include:

  • Lower Upfront Payments — Not only will you pay less per month on a lease vs. buying, but your down payment and other upfront costs will also be lower.
  • Lower Sales Tax Rates — In most states, the tax rates for leasing a vehicle are far lower than if you buy. Some states only tax your down payment and monthly payments.
  • Trade-In and Trade-Up — Trading in your leased vehicle at the end of your lease term is easy: you simply bring your car to the dealership you leased from, and you’ll drive home to Pahrump in your next Kia lease. 
  • Save On Your Next Lease — Trading in a leased vehicle will save you money on your next lease. Value your trade with Jim Marsh Kia to see how much you can save!
  • Excellent Warranty Coverage — Just like with buying, comprehensive warranty coverage comes standard with your new Kia.
  • Enjoy New Tech — Leasing a new Kia every few years gives you access to exciting new infotainment and safety technology features as soon as they’re available.
  • Bad Credit Lease — Leases are less of a financial commitment and are also possible for drivers with damaged credit.
