Buy or Lease a New Car in Havre, MT

Buy or Lease a New Car

If you’re trying to decide between buying or leasing the car you want, we’ll help you weigh your options at our Chevrolet dealership in Havre. At Tilleman Chevrolet, we want to work with whatever your situation might be, and we’ll help you determine whether it’s more practical to buy or lease the vehicle that you want to drive home. There are advantages to both options, so it will take a closer look to see which is the right plan for you.

Buying vs. Leasing

What’s the difference between buying and leasing? The biggest distinction is where ownership of the car goes. If you buy a car, it’s yours to keep for as long as you please. If you lease a vehicle, then the dealership retains its ownership, and you agree to drive it for a set period of time before returning it. There are more differences, of course, so let’s go into further detail:

  • When you buy a car, making its auto loan payments on time can improve your credit score.
  • The monthly payments of a lease agreement are typically lower than auto loan financing payments.
  • If you lease a car, you have to keep it in stock condition, but if you buy it, you can customize the vehicle to suit your taste.
  • You don’t have to worry about selling a leased vehicle – you just return it to the dealership.
  • The value of a car you own can be used via trade-in to lower the cost of your next purchase.
  • If you like driving new models as often as possible, you can opt for short leasing periods to switch vehicles on a more regular basis.
