There are many benefits to either buying or leasing. Determining which option is best for you really boils down to your personal preferences for your vehicle. The best way to make an informed decision is to ask yourself some important automotive questions:

LEASING BUYING
Up-Front Down payment is typically less with leasing than buying. Down payment can be rolled into the total cost or used to significantly reduce your monthly payment.
Ownership While you don’t own it, you can easily upgrade to the newest model when the lease is over. You own it. If financed, when the loan is paid off it is yours. Yes!
Monthly Payment Lease payments are generally smaller than auto financing with a loan. This is because you are only paying for vehicle depreciation and ‘rent’ fees during the term of the lease. Loan payments are generally higher than leasing. This is because you are paying off the full price of the vehicle.
Mileage Mileage limits. Your lease includes a standard amount of miles related to vehicle depreciation. Fees are incurred for extra miles accrued. Repair costs. As the vehicle owner, unless you opted in for a service package at the time of purchase, you are responsible for maintenance, service & repair of your new vehicle.
Repair Warranty Maintenance. Most auto lease packages come with a warranty, this covers most maintenance and repair costs. Repair costs. As the vehicle owner, unless you opted in for a service package at the time of purchase, you are responsible for maintenance, service & repair of your new vehicle.
Contract Contract. Yes, a lease is a contract. Expect early termination costs and fees. Also, vehicle customization is not allowed. No Contract. Sell when you want. Customize to your heart’s content.

I had a horrifying situation pop up regarding my trade in when I bought my Acura in January. For my beautiful RDX thanks to Ann, April, Ray, Chris the rest of the Gillman staff.

Just had my 2014 Acura MDX serviced at Gillman Acura. Ron Mascardo and his service team were able to diagnose the problem over the phone and had the part waiting for me when I arrived for my service appointment. In and out in 1 hour with problem fixed.Dealership was especially clean with plenty of room for social distancing. As I have said before the service department at Gillman Acura keeps us coming back.

I recently purchased a pre-owned vehicle from Team Gillman. It was the first time I had ever purchased a vehicle online. Walter Bradshaw and (GM) Chris made the experience like it should be, straight forward and no nonsense. Walter even answered questions after hours. It was challenging amid the current crisis, but Walter delivered. I highly recommend!
