Total Costs of Ownership

If you’re looking for total costs of owning a car, you’ll want to know that leasing a car is cheaper than buying. You’ll pay a lower down payment, get lower monthly payments, and your term will be shorter which means less money leaves your pocket overall.

However, there’s a few things to consider when you think about your options. If you lease your car, you don’t own the vehicle outright. It’s still the property of the dealership unless you decide to buy out your lease at the end of its term. Once your lease term, typically 36 months, is up, you’ll return the vehicle to the dealership if you opt against buying out your lease. In addition, you’re subject to restrictions on the vehicle you own. You’ll have to adhere to mileage restrictions, typically 10,000 miles a year, and you’ll be limited in your customization options because the vehicle doesn’t belong to you.
