Leasing or financing?! 7Aug Leasing – long-term cheap rental of a new car! The car doesn’t belong to you, BUT! you have the right to buy it out after the lease term ends or to take it on credit. Loan – buying a car for ownership using borrowed funds at interest (from 0 to 30%). Many mistakenly believe that, when financing the car, it is their property. This is theoretically true. In practice, it becomes your property only after the loan is paid in full. You also pay interest, which is hidden under the word “money factor”. By multiplying the monetary factor by 2400, you will receive a % for using the money. Advantages of leasing: Always a new car Guaranteed for the entire lease term The monthly payment amount is less than with financing You do not lose anything if the car has an accident during operation. If you additionally charge an insurer for wear and tear, which costs about $ 20 per month.

There is also a convenient insurance for the wheels – free replacement of the tires and discs in case of damage during operation Cons of leasing: – Limited mileage, from 7,500 to 15,000 miles per year.
