Lease Versus Buy


Whether you lease or buy your new Volkswagen, you're going to get a great deal from Williams Volkswagen. If you don't know which option is best for you, we have a comprehensive guide to help steer you towards the right decision.

Are you considering leasing a Volkswagen versus buying one? Do you wonder if now is better to lease or buy in Okemos, Michigan? Even with long-term auto loans, the payments on buying a new car will likely be more expensive. Leasing allows our Capitol City customers to get behind the wheel of a new Volkswagen Jetta, Tiguan, Atlas and more with a monthly payment that's typically lower than if you purchased it. Our Williams Volkswagen financial experts have done the homework on both options for you. If you still have questions, our experts can help you determine what is right for your financial situation. We take into consideration the current financial climate, your automotive needs, and future plans.

Pros and cons of leasing versus buying:

Monthly lease payments are typically lower than auto loan payments. When you buy a vehicle, your monthly payments will eventually stop when you pay off the car loan. Leases come with limits on how many miles you can drive. When you own the vehicle, there are no limits. Leasing is a shorter commitment of course, but you are locked into the lease for the term signed.
