What is the difference between leasing and purchasing, though? Which option is best for you? Here at The Car Store, we are proud to help everyone from the Delmarva Peninsula to the Eastern Shore answer that question.

Lease vs Loan

There are a few small, yet vital differences between leasing and purchasing that you should be aware of. Depending on your personal driving habits and your budget, either one of them could be a good option for you.


As it's the most popular financing option, let's start with purchasing a car. There are a lot of benefits associated with this option (hence its popularity); however, one benefit looms above all the others: you get ownership of the vehicle you choose. This is especially important for some drivers, who want to have control over how often or far they drive, when they get their car serviced, and more.

However, when you purchase a car you often have to take out an automotive loan (since the majority of drivers do not have enough money to cover the car's entire cost when they arrive on our lot). This loan will cost the initial cost of the car; you will then pay it off over the coming months.


So what are the benefits of leasing a car? When you lease a car, you get more flexibility with our financing team. That is because you do not need to take out an auto loan when you lease a car. In fact, leasing a car could be a more affordable on a monthly basis than purchasing a car.

However, when you lease a vehicle you also have to abide by certain mileage and condition parameters, which can make leasing difficult for some drivers, especially those who often travel extensive distances.
