Is Leasing a Bay Ridge VW Less Expensive than Buying?

While the price of the Volkswagen may not be less expensive, the monthly payments for leased vehicles are typically lower than the monthly payments when you buy. This is because you are only paying for the part of the car or truck that you are using. In other words, you are paying for the depreciation on the vehicle over the duration of the lease. When you buy, your monthly payments reflect the entire purchase price of the vehicle. Because of this, people who choose to lease can often times lease a more expensive vehicle and have the same monthly payments as if they bought a less expensive vehicle.

What Other Costs are Associated with Leasing a Volkswagen?

Similar to renting an apartment, costs associated with leasing a VW typically include first month’s payment plus a security deposit that is refundable. Often gap insurance, which covers the difference in price between the value of the car and what your insurance company will pay if the car should be damaged or stolen, is also required. There may also be a mileage fee if you drive over the annual mileage limit set in your lease agreement. These upfront costs are usually not required when buying a vehicle. Other costs such as a down payment, sales tax (on the full purchase price), loan interest, and miscellaneous government fees usually come into play when buying.

What Happens at the End of My Lease?

When your lease expires, you pretty much return the car or SUV to the dealership and walk away or discuss the option to purchase the vehicle from the dealership. Sometimes there may be end-of-lease costs for things like excessive mileage or scratches and dents that are considered beyond normal if you do turn the VW back into Bay Ridge in Brooklyn NY. Additionally, when turning in a lease you usually don’t retain the same value as if you were trading in a car you purchased, and you can’t sell it to a third party without purchasing the balance of the value of the car. In other words, the trade-in value of a vehicle you buy is usually worth more and you always have the option to sell yours to a third party.
