Buy or Lease a New Car Near Petaluma, CA

When you visit Manly Honda near Petaluma, we make it easy to find the vehicle you’ve been searching for. Our eclectic lineup of new cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks offers something for everyone, and we’re always happy to work with your checklist to track down exactly what you need. Once you’ve found the model that fits your lifestyle, the next question is whether you should buy it to own or lease it for a while. Both options have their benefits, but it’s important to consider your specific situation before making a decision. 

Buying vs. Leasing 

The most obvious difference between buying and leasing is ownership. When you buy a car, it’s yours to keep for as long as you want. On the other hand, when you lease a vehicle, it’s essentially a long-term rental, and ownership remains with the dealership. There are more details surrounding this key difference, so take these points into consideration as well:  

  • Buying a vehicle and making financing payments on time can improve your credit score. 
  • Lease payments are typically lower than auto loan payments, and they involve lower interest rates.
  • Leased vehicles must remain in stock condition, but when you buy a vehicle, you can customize it as you please. 
  • You don’t have to worry about trading or selling a vehicle at the end of a lease, and lease agreements can be set for short periods to let you drive new models more frequently.
