When shopping for a new vehicle, drivers from Grand Island to Hastings not only have to decide what type of car, truck or SUV best suits their needs, they also have to determine whether buying or leasing is the right choice for their budget. While there are unique benefits to both financing and leasing a car, the choice ultimately comes down to your own personal preference. So which will you choose? The finance experts at Midway Auto Dealerships are here to help you make an informed decision.



Benefits of Buying

Many Holdrege area drivers prefer owning their vehicle, so they choose to finance.

The key advantages to buying a car include:

  • Ownership – Your monthly payment helps to build equity, and at the end of your finance term length you’ll own the car outright. Finance term lengths usually run 36, 48, or 60 months.
  • Customization – Owning a car means it’s yours to do with as you please. Whether you want to get a custom paint job, add a premium stereo system, or install components to upgrade performance, you won’t pay a penalty for altering the vehicle.

Benefits of Leasing

Choosing to lease a vehicle means essentially that you are borrowing the car for an agreed period of time. Once the term length is completed you have the option to either purchase it or return it to the dealership. The advantages to leasing include:

  • Affordability – Vehicle leases usually come with lower down payments and lower monthly payments, allowing you to drive a brand new vehicle without putting too big of a dent in your budget.
  • The Latest Features – With the shorter 24 or 36 months term length of a lease, you can bring the car in when the lease is done and upgrade to a vehicle that is equipped with the latest technology, performance, and design features.
