Buy vs Lease

Should I Buy or Lease a Mitsubishi? O’Brien Normal Mitsubishi Can Help You Decide

Shopping for a new car is an exciting endeavor, but it can also be very stressful. We know you have many options available to you.  One of the biggest decisions you’ll make along the way is whether to lease or buy your new car. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the prospect of wading through all of your financing, model and trim options, never fear—at O’Brien Normal Mitsubishi we have a top-notch sales team that is professional and friendly. We will help you make the choice that is best for you.

When You Should Lease

Leasing is a great option for customers that are looking for lower payments and the ability to change up their ride from time to time. Leasing is a good arrangement for people who don’t want to pay for the entire value of the car, but just the cost of depreciation. Drivers should consider leasing if they drive less than 15,000 miles a year, maintain their vehicles well, and like to have a new set of wheels every few years. Once the term of your lease is up, usually a few years, you drive down to your Mitsubishi dealer, turn it in, and pick up a new Mitsubishi car.

When You Should Buy

If you’re looking to buy, you most likely see the purchase not just as a new set of wheels, but as an investment. When you own, the option to sell is always available to you. And when you own, you don’t have to worry about paying costly fines for mileage or accidental damage as part of the lease agreement. In addition, owning your car gives you greater flexibility. If you want to sell it and buy a new car you can do that at any time. With a car lease, terminating a contract early will most likely result in penalty fees. For example, if you are thinking about starting a family or expanding your family in the next few years, it is better to buy a car now and then sell it or trade it in for a minivan if you will end up needing the extra space.
