The debate between leasing and buying is one that a lot of customers have when it is time to buy a new vehicle.

The finance center at Kokomo Toyota, located at 3815 South LaFountain Street in Kokomo, IN is your hub for all things auto finance-related. We can help you get the answers you need to make the right decision for you.

Buying Your New Toyota

Although, a discussion with one of our finance experts is the best way to determine whether purchasing or leasing is right for your situation, people who purchase tend to be people who enjoy owning their vehicles for several years. They also like the equity that comes once a car loan has been paid in full. This equity can be used toward the purchase of a new vehicle or for something completely different. Kokomo, IN customers who buy also tend to like the fact that they don't need to worry about mileage restrictions or potential damage fees. We also get a lot of drivers who choose to purchase their new Toyota because they want the freedom to personalize or customize it.

Leasing a New Toyota

Unlike the purchase of a new Toyota, someone who leases will only have the vehicle for a predetermined time, typically two to four years. They will also have a mileage limit that they can't surpass without getting an over-mileage fee. However, since a lease means you are only paying for the time you are using the vehicle, it means you can get a much lower monthly payment than you would with a traditional auto loan. Also, with a lease agreement, you have access to a new Toyota every two to four years. People who lease tend to drive fewer than 15,000 miles a year, don't want to customize or personalize their vehicle, and like the idea of having access to new technology and upgrades regularly.
