LEASING BUYING

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 just bought a 2019 Acura TLX A-Spec and not only am I in love with my brand new car, but I also thoroughly enjoyed my sales experience at Gillman Acura! My salesman (Andy Amoako) was extremely knowledgeable about the vehicle, very patient with me and all my questions, and he made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. I even felt well taken care of in Finance; the finance manager (James Alaskare) was very polite and willing to crunch numbers until I felt comfortable enough to sign. From the moment I entered this dealership until the moment I left, everyone was very friendly and more than accommodating. If you're in the market for a new vehicle, I seriously suggest that you go get the Gillman experience; it is unmatched! I feel GREAT about my purchase and who I bought from.

Their service department keeps bringing us back.
