Why Leasing A Chevy Makes Sense?

Concern Why It Makes Sense!
I Don’t want to Lease, as I’ll never own the Vehicle In the majority of instances, the buyer will get a 5-6-7 year loan to purchase the vehicle but tend to trade them in around 36 months. If you speak with an accountant, they will advise you that you purchase items that make you money (401K, bonds, a home) and you lease things that lose you money. Vehicles lose money and a lot of it.
I don’t understand how leasing works/ I’ve only heard bad things about it Leasing a vehicle is very popular. Vehicles tend to get more expensive by the year and the payments can be higher than most budgets can afford. Leasing allows a client to have a new vehicle every 3 years for half the payment of a purchase.
Also, at Mike Anderson Merrillville, GAP insurance is free and in most leases, the clients are always under warranty so there are literally no out of pocket expenses
I don’t want Mileage restrictions/ I drive too many miles At Mike Anderson Merrillville, our Leases allow clients to determine their mileage. A client that barely drives can go 10k per year, 12k per year or 15k per year. If a client drives more, we can help them pre-buy miles for 20k, 25k per year.
Aren’t the Insurance costs are higher? There are no differences in insurance costs whether leasing or purchasing a vehicle
What if I want to keep my vehicle at the end of the Lease term? At the end of your lease, you have 4 options.

  • You can buy the balloon payment at the end and refinance it.
  • You can turn it in and go into another lease.
  • You can trade it with the dealer and the dealer may buy it for their inventory.
  • You can drop the vehicle off at the dealership.

I’m still not sure about Leasing!

Leasing is steadily growing over the years! 25 years ago, leasing was reserved only for businesses. Stability is an important factor, a person’s personal relationship (marriage) lasted 30-40 years, people were in the same home 30-40 years and they could be in the same job for 30-40 years.

In this day and age, the movement in financial capability, personal growth etc have made leasing a very viable option. In addition, there are a lot of unforeseen financial stresses that can hurt a family and when they are in long-term loans with high payments. Leasing gives a person a very affordable option

Some important reasons for why you should seriously consider leasing:

  • Never worry about negative equity.

  • Payments are much lower than a purchase since leases are usually for half the term and cost of the vehicle.

  • Mike Anderson Merrillville also provides Free Gap Insurance.

  • You can get a New vehicle every 2- 3 years.

  • Taxes are paid on the payment only and not the entire vehicle.

  • You’re not going to be stuck into a long-term loan.
