There are plenty of great Dodge vehicles to choose from here at I.G. Burton Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Milford, but once you find the perfect car you have another big decision to make. Do you lease or do you buy a Dodge car that’s caught your eye?

When to Buy

Buying a car can be a great idea if you:

  • Drive a lot more than the average driver
  • Plan to keep your car for a long time
  • Like to customize your vehicle

If you drive a lot, you would likely come up against the mileage limits included in most lease agreements. Many leases only let you drive 12,000 miles per year or so.

If you tend to keep your cars for a long time, buying tends to work out well financially. Once your loan is paid off, cost of ownership plummets and you only have to worry about costs like insurance, fuel, and maintenance.

Finally, leases don’t let you customize your vehicle since you don’t technically own it. If you like to buy accessories and performance parts, a Dodge financing arrangement will work out better for you.

When to Lease

A Dodge lease is perfect for drivers who:

  • Like to buy new cars frequently
  • Want to get more car for their money
  • Value flexibility

A lease agreement allows you to upgrade to new vehicles every few years without a hassle. There’s no worrying about trading in your car or anything. You simply turn in your leased vehicle and get a new car.

Leasing is flexible though, so you can also decide to extend your lease or buy that car you’ve been leasing outright. Lease payments also tend to be less expensive than loan payments, so a lease can also allow you to get more car for your money.
