Are you ready to get the keys to a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram vehicle, but still debating between buying vs leasing a car? Read on to learn about a number of benefits of leasing a car, as well as the benefits of buying a car, so you can make the most informed decision possible.

Drivers who want to upgrade to a new model in a few years, or who know they will not put excessive mileage on their vehicle may want to consider leasing a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram vehicle. On the other hand, drivers who wish to outright own their vehicle at the end of auto financing, or who will be using their vehicle day in day out and running up the odometer, may prefer to select an auto financing plan that spans over a number of years.

No matter which option you ultimately select, you can work with the experts in the auto finance center at our Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram dealership in St. Louis every step of the way to come up with a plan that works for your lifestyle.

Benefits of Buying vs Leasing

Below, we have outlined several specific examples that illustrate the difference between buying vs. leasing a new vehicle from our Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram dealership in St. Louis.
  1. A driver seeking a great family vehicle that will serve them for years to come may decide to purchase a new Chrysler Pacifica minivan. Since they plan on using it years into the future, including family trips and carpool shifts, they can enjoy freedom from mileage restrictions that would come with leasing. The down payment will likely be higher up front, and the vehicle will depreciate over time, but when this customer has paid off their auto-financing contract, they are free to trade in their vehicle whenever they wish.
  3. A driver who enjoys upgrading their vehicle every few years, values having the latest in cutting-edge features, and is seeking a new pickup truck to confidently commute short distances and get work done might consider leasing a new Ram 1500 from our dealership. Insurance premiums may be higher throughout the lease than during financing, but this driver will likely benefit from lower monthly payments, and damages are typically covered under a warranty through the duration of the lease.
  5. Are you an off-roading enthusiast who wants to put plenty of miles on a trusty Jeep Wrangler Unlimited SUV? If you want to trick out your Jeep with a host of customized parts and accessories, and view your ultra-capable Jeep as a long-term investment for plenty of future adventures, you may want to purchase your new Jeep model on a plan that works for your budget. Though the monthly payments may be higher than with leasing, you can have full creative control over your SUV, and don't need to fret about impacts that go above normal wear and tear when you hit the trails.
