What Are the Differences Between Leasing and Buying?

What is the difference between leasing and buying, though? And which option is a better investment opportunity?

Buying a car is often what people consider the default option when they arrive on our lot. It is true that investing in a vehicle can have a multitude of benefits: you have ownership of the vehicle, for example. However, there are also some drawbacks: taking out an automotive loan can be scary for some folks, both because of the amount and length of the loan, and because it requires a credit check. This is also not a great option for folks who want a short-term vehicle.

Leasing a car is akin to renting an apartment. You don’t have to take out an automotive loan, and it offers more financial flexibility on a monthly basis (leasing is a set monthly amount, while buying is based on a variety of factors). However, leasing also has some drawbacks: there are mileage parameters you have to abide by, and you have to keep the vehicle in good condition.
