The choice of whether to buy or lease a new vehicle is one of the biggest financial decisions we can make. If you’re thinking about getting behind the wheel of a new Dodge Charger, Challenger, Durango, or RAM 1500 truck, take a minute to familiarize yourself with the pros and cons of each approach.
There are few cookie-cutter answers for whether buying or leasing is a better choice, but certain individual preferences may suggest one approach over the other. For example, if you love working on your car in Bakersfield, especially concerning installing after-market parts and making modifications to your drivetrain, then you’re a likely candidate for buying a vehicle, as you can’t make significant modifications to leased vehicles.
The simple answer for Bakersfield, CA drivers is money. Generally speaking, monthly payments on a lease tend to be markedly less than monthly payments for a purchase. Furthermore, a car, truck, or SUV in a lease from our Haddad Dodge Ram dealership is almost always covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, which means that mechanical failures won’t cost you anything, with a low likelihood of needing to replace tires, brakes, or exhaust components.
Another reason: the latest safety and connectivity technology. When you drive a leased vehicle in the Kern County area, you are by definition driving a car, truck, or SUV that is fewer than four years old. If you’re driving a vehicle that is getting along in years, you don’t have access to the latest safest technologies like collision alerts or blind-spot monitoring. Being in a lease also means Bakersfield drivers get the latest infotainment tech at your disposal, including voice control and smartphone integration that allow you to access your technology without looking at your phone. We have fantastic Dodge and Ram lease deals at our dealership near Taft and Delano, CA. Browse our online inventory and visit us to test drive a new vehicle today.
If you still haven’t made up your mind, speak with a member of our finance center to discuss your individual situation, and explore your options.
The biggest objection most folks have to lease is that they don’t understand it. People tend to fear and avoid things they don’t understand, especially when they are in an uncomfortable environment (such as a typical showroom). Here’s a quick contrast example between financing and leasing a $20,000 vehicle for a 60-month loan and a 36-month lease:
When you get a $20,000 loan, the bank pays us $20,000 for your car and keeps your title until you pay off the entire $20,000, plus interest.
When you lease, the bank also pays us $20,000 and keeps the title. What’s the difference? With a loan, the bank wants back 100% of the $20,000, plus interest. With a lease, the bank only wants you to pay $8000 plus interest (the difference between $20,000 and the residual of $12,000. The “residual” is the pre-determined value of the leased vehicle after 36 months).
