Lease or Finance?
The decision to lease or finance depends on many factors, but most customers make the decision based on monthly payments and how long they typically drive their vehicles.
In general, customers who lease prefer to drive a new car every 2-3 years and appreciate making lower monthly payments. For certain business customers, there may also be additional tax advantages with leasing.
Customers who finance their vehicles tend to drive them for five to 10 years and appreciate driving without mileage limitations.
