Buy vs Lease

You know you're in for a safe and reliable ride around Flemington and Hamilton when you drive a Honda. But what's the best way to get one? Honda of Princeton examines two ways you can get the keys to the car you want in this buy vs. lease comparison.

Benefits of Buying

Buying a car is a solid long-term investment. It gives you the car, truck, or SUV that you want for as long as you want to own it. The best part about owning a car is the fact that it's all yours. You can do whatever you want with it for the next ten years or more.

Whether it's when you first buy or it's years down the road, you can add or remove whatever accessories you want to customize your ride to look exactly the way you like it.

Buying a reliable car like a Honda also gives you the freedom to explore. As the vehicle's owner, you'll be able to hit the road and put as many miles on it as you want.

Another perk of buying a new vehicle is that there's often a warranty available that will cover your routine maintenance and service early on.

Benefits of Leasing  

Leasing a car is a fun alternative to buying. It offers you a different path towards getting behind the wheel. Think of leasing as an extended rental or a two-year trial run.

A lease term usually lasts either 24 or 36 months. The vehicle is yours for the duration of the term. This means that you get a new vehicle for the next two or three years. When your term is up, you'll give it back to the dealership.

Where this helps you is that you usually won't have to make a down payment. When you buy, you're responsible for paying off the full value of the car. With a lease, you'll only be financially responsible for its value during your term.

The other benefit is how convenient it makes upgrading. Let's say you leased a Honda Civic. At the end of your term, you can return it and start a new lease with the latest model, or you can switch things up. It's easy to get more space and lease a new SUV like the Honda Pilot instead.
