Purchasing Your Current Ride vs Continuing to Lease: What You Should Know

Ease and flexibility is one of the many benefits of leasing a new vehicle; this includes the option to purchase the car you’re currently in. It’s not uncommon to lease a new vehicle only to discover it has everything you need and you can’t imagine parting with it when your term comes due. If you decide to travel this path, you’ll be pleased to know that your monthly payments will be similar to the payments you had while leasing. In addition, you receive the added benefit of your vehicle manufacturer warranty rolling over, as long as there is time left on it. This means you and your vehicle are till protected.

If your lease comes to an end and you decide this vehicle isn’t for you, you have the option to simply end your lease. More often than not, customers who lease choose to upgrade to a newer model; if that’s where your interests lie, Byers Volkswagen is here to help you move forward with that plan. When you choose the option of leasing you will typically see lower monthly payments than you would if you chose to finance the vehicle. No matter which choice you deem best for you, our expert team at Byers Volkswagen is here to help you navigate the transition.
