In general, if you like getting a new car that has the latest technology every few years, leasing is probably a good idea. When you lease, you basically rent a car for a certain number of months. When your lease expires, you’ll simply return your vehicle to the dealership. At that time, you have the option of buying the automobile you returned, buying or leasing another vehicle, or walking away without a car.

When you buy a vehicle, you won’t return it at the end of a set period of time. Instead, you’ll own your car exclusively after you pay off your car loan. As you’ll have to do when you lease, you’ll have to make monthly payments to your lender until you pay off the balance of your loan. Purchasing a car gives you the flexibility to put as many miles on your odometer as you want to every year without having to worry about paying a penalty for excessive mileage.

People who lease an automobile generally don’t have to put as much money down up front and they normally have lower monthly payments. When you buy a vehicle, you build equity in your car every time you make a monthly payment, which is why your monthly payment will ordinarily be higher than it would be if you leased an automobile instead.
