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.

 

Are you a car-keeper or a car-trader?

  • If you’re the type to keep your car for 5 or more years, then you’ll benefit more from financing your new Acura
  • If you like getting a new car every 3 to 5 years, leasing could be for you.

Are you a commuter or a road-tripper?

  • If your annual mileage is less than 15,000 miles, you’re a prime leasing candidate
  • Love taking long road trips and regularly exploring the countryside in your vehicle? You’ll definitely want to purchase your new Acura.

Are you a vehicular decorator?

So so so happy with my new RDX -- it's THE BEST car ever. Chris G was so helpful and hospitable and patient! He answered all my questions, even when I texted late at night! He was very informative and very fun and casual, so I never felt Chris was forcing me into anything I wasn't ready for or sure about. But I'm SO thankful he was patient because I ended up closing the deal and loving my new car!The online research prior to purchase led to automatic texting from either an assistant or a computer assistant that got a little aggressive (daily hounding of "when can we expect you in" "when can we get you in for another test drive" etc.), but since I was fully intending to buy and very pleased with Chris, this didn't bug me too much. Overall, so pleased with my Gillman experience and super pleased with Chris.

I recently went to Gillman Acura looking for a specific vehicle model. I was helped by Masum Ahmed from the Gillman Acura team. He made sure all my questions and concerns were answered so that I did not have any doubt into what I was purchasing. I appreciated that after my purchase I have continued to receive great service from him and from Jeff Libertore in the service department. I appreciate that they remain in contact to make sure I am still happy with my purchase.

I just pulled into the dealership parts area and was promptly greeted by Rebecca. She provided the best service that I have ever gotten at a dealership service department. Knew exactly the part that I needed, explained the history of the part, and actually spent 2 mins helping snap it in. In and out in 5 mins and I get exactly what I needed. Love Rebecca!!

Salesman Masum was very professional and cordial. He was very patient and worked with me to bring home a beautiful RDX at a price much lower than what the other Acura Dealerships were offering! I’m looking forward to bringing my son here to Gillman to get his new Acura (in a different color though, he doesn’t want to match me).Gillman, keep hiring professionals like Masum with his excellent service and we’ll keep coming back
