Ask Gillman Acura: Should You Buy or Lease Your New Acura?

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.

My review is for the service department. Robert always takes care of us. We have been dealing with him for 5 years and he always makes sure we have a loaner and he always gets our issues resolved. It's a shame there aren't more service guys like Robert. Ford, Dodge and Chevy should be taking notes on how it's done... Thank you Robert for all your help.

If you are looking for a new or used car Gillman Acura is definitely your dealership to come check out. I have personally bought 4 vehicles from them (1 new and 3 used) and every time they always seem to make the deal go through in the best interest of the customer. With owning a company and having kids reaching the ages of driving age I will definitely be back to see the staff at Gillman Acura again. I purchased my newest preowned vehicle from Jennifer and I have also purchased one from April so I can tell you from experience that both of those ladies are GREAT! And as always it’s a pleasure working with Crysta, Charlie & Raad. Thank you again Gillman Acura!
