At Zeigler Ford of North Riverside we know that there are many choices to make when you’re buying a new vehicle. Once you’ve decided on a new Ford car, truck, or SUV, there’s one more big choice to make. Do you buy or do you lease? Fortunately, our automotive experts can help you decide which works better for you.

When making this decision you want to consider your budget, driving needs, and personal preferences. Let’s take a look at leasing first. When you lease a vehicle, you pay upfront and then make monthly payments just as you would when purchasing a vehicle. These payments tend to be less costly than paying off an auto loan would be though. At the end of the lease period, usually two to three years, you just bring the car back to us. You can decide to renew your lease, buy the car, or lease a new vehicle entirely.

This makes leasing a great option for drivers who love to upgrade to the latest models whenever possible. It also eliminates the need to sell a vehicle before upgrading to a new one. Just remember that one drawback of a lease is that most agreements limit how much you can drive. If you plan to take a lot of lengthy road trips in that 2020 Ford F-150 or you have a long commute, you might end up racking up extra fees.

Buying a car is a good option if you plan to keep it for a long time and don’t feel the need to constantly upgrade. Once you pay off your auto loan, costs of ownership really drop off. You just have to worry about maintenance, insurance costs, and fuel. You can drive as much as you want and you can even customize your Ford vehicle with performance parts, off-road accessories, and more.

So visit our Ford financing experts serving Cicero, IL and see how easy it is to drive away in a new Ford vehicle that you’ll love. We look forward to helping you out!
