You’ve seen the commercials, ads, and specials on our website telling you that you can lease a 2019 Mazda3 or another Mazda SUV for a certain amount of money a month. But while the prices are tempting, how do you know whether leasing or buying is the right choice for you? There’s no one right answer, but here at Auto Express Mazda, we want to help you make the right decision for you and your family.

The biggest difference between buying and leasing is ownership. While buying a car might mean higher monthly payments for years, at the end of that time, you own your car. Even if you re-sell your car before it has been fully paid off, you’ve still built equity. Leasing a car usually comes with lower monthly payments than purchasing, which is the big advantage, but you don’t build car-ownership in the process.

When it comes to picking the right financing option for you, it’s important to think about your lifestyle and what you want out of a car. Do you like experiencing the latest and best technology on the market? Consider leasing! Lease terms often last only three years or so, which means you’ll regularly be able to get the newest version of your favorite Mazda at low monthly costs. On the other hand, if you’re envisioning driving your 2019 Mazda CX-5 for years to come before eventually passing it on to your kids, buying is likely a better choice for you.

Depending on your needs, buying and leasing are both great options, and you can learn more about them from our finance experts at Antelope Valley Mazda. Our Erie, PA Mazda dealership offers great purchase and lease options on an outstanding selection of Mazda vehicles, so stop by today to find your dream vehicle.
