Buying vs. Leasing | Waldorf Honda

Thinking of upgrading your car this spring, but are torn between buying or leasing your next vehicle? Make an informed decision before you move forward with your new car.

W Honda - March 6.jpg

Benefits of Leasing

Many people jump at the opportunity to lease a new vehicle because it will save more cash out of pocket as opposed to purchasing the car. And lower monthly payments when leasing means you may save more money over time.

Leasing a car also allows for a shorter signing process at the dealership. The paperwork for leasing a car takes less time to complete than the paperwork for buying a car. This means you can get out of the dealership and into your new car quicker.

Dealerships tend to offer more subvention offers when it comes to leasing. Subventions are types of financial incentives in the form of discounted up-front costs or other similar offers. These subventions are usually put in place by dealers, which allows the customer to take advantage of great lease deals.

Benefits of Buying

The main allure of buying a car is that the car is entirely yours. The owner won’t have to worry about how many miles are driven per year or extra charges for going over those yearly miles, making changes to the exterior or interior, or fees for wear when the vehicle is returned to the dealership at the lease end.

When you own a vehicle, you can pass it along to a family member when you’re through with it or sell it when you please. That is a major draw when it comes to deciding whether to buy or lease your new car.

Making Your Decision

When making your decision between buying and leasing, you want to get the best deal for your situation. You need to weigh the financial options to determine what works for you. To do so, it’s essential to look beyond the monthly car payments and pay attention to all of the pros, cons, features, benefits, and other specifics to all of your deal options.

There are also non-monetary decisions that every potential customer should take into consideration. For example, how long do you want to have this new car? Will other members drive it as well? Do you think you’ll regret your choice of vehicle? Thinking about these non-financial factors will help make you make your decision.

With the right amount of planning, the decision to buy or lease your new car can be an easy one. And whether you choose to purchase or lease your new vehicle, Waldorf Honda’s large inventory of new cars will surely have the perfect car for you with a deal that fits your needs.

Tips for Driving in Winter Weather

Although rain is in the forecast for this weekend, it’s important to know how to drive in ice, especially this time of year, when ice can unexpectedly happen at any time! Here are a few tips for safe driving in wintry conditions:

W Chevy - January 6.jpg

  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly. Be sure that you gradually ease into the gas or break when the roads are slick, to avoid spin-outs.
  • Drive slowly. Even if the roads aren’t terrible, black ice paired with speed can be a recipe for disaster. Be sure to slow down and take your time when the temperature is below freezing.
  • Increase your spacing between yourself and the vehicle in front of you. Allow for plenty of stopping room, in the event that your car begins to slide.
  • Test your brakes before you get out on the roadway. Come to a few harsh stops in your driveway, before you venture out, to test the road conditions and your brakes with the slippery roads.
  • If you can avoid it, don’t come to a complete stop. If you can safely coast through an intersection without having to come to a stop, or to make a turn, you’re likely to keep traction longer than if you stop completely.
  • Slow and steady wins the race. When faced with a hill, don’t hit the gas too fast and try to gain too much speed. Take your time, drive slowly and steadily until you reach the top of the hill.
  • If you can avoid it, stay inside. Allow road crews to treat the roadways before you get behind the wheel.

Driving in winter weather can be frightening, especially if you don’t do it very often. Take these tips along for the ride, and stay safe, if you can’t stay off the roads.

Contact us today to set up an appointment with our Service Department, to ensure your car is ready for the quickly approaching winter weather!
