When choosing between buying or leasing your next vehicle, like a new ES, IS, or GX, that decision can be made based on what you need the vehicle for and for how long. So what are the differences between buying and leasing? Let’s get into them.


What is Leasing?

When you lease a vehicle, think of it as borrowing that vehicle for a certain amount of time and/or miles. The car is yours for that amount of time, but not for forever. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, great! We are going to get into the pros and cons of both leasing and buying below.


A few of the pros that go into leasing a vehicle include lower monthly payments, zero concerns about reselling your car, and a wider variety of vehicles to choose from, and more often! Cons of leasing can include paying more attention to how many miles you have left, no freedom to customize your vehicle, and making payments more frequently.


What is Buying?

Buying your next vehicle means this vehicle is yours for however long you want it. You’ll have full ownership of the car, truck or SUV you choose.


Upon buying your new car, truck, or SUV, you can expect pros like full ownership, no need to worry about specific mileage to stay under, and your choice of trading it in or selling it. A few cons to expect with buying are a high down payment and depreciation.
