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

The research is done, and you’ve made your choice on your new Acura. But before you sign on the dotted line, have you considered the benefits available to you when you lease an Acura? If you’ve got a few minutes, Gillman Acura’s team of automotive leasing experts want to help you make an informed decision between the benefits of buying or leasing your next 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.

Gillman was my second dealership on Saturday. I left a good deal due to bad service at the prior place. Andy sold me an MDX, at an even better deal with personalized 5 star service. From the initial to the final handshake, he was attentive, respectful and knew his stuff. There were so many positives in this experience it is hard to remember them all! From him being respectful of our time, down to having the radio in my new car set to what was playing on my trade in. Good price - GREAT service. I cannot recommend Andy enough. Even though this is an old ad campaign, GILLMAN IS DEFINITELY THE WAY TO GO!Thank you Andy!

Awesome!!!!!! I purchased my third vehicle from Team Gillman, a 2020 MDX and it was the smoothest purchase I have ever made. The team at Gillman Acura made the buying experience enjoyable. Ann and April made sure I was a part of the process from choosing the car to finance. Would recommend these to ladies to everyone. In addition to Ann and April, Chris G. and Dana L. made sure I was completely happy with my purchase. They all went above and beyond my expectations and will definitely continue to purchase vehicles from Team Gillman.

The folks at dealership very accommodating and wanted to get the job done right. They took their time and made it work! Great job!This a follow up from the previous postRebecca and her team made this an outstanding experience. Not only did they pick up the key as the tow driver carelessly took off without it, she arranged for the car to be dropped off making us feel special. You are a super star!!!
