Should I Buy or Lease?


When the time comes to get behind the wheel of a new model for your Pearland commutes, you’ll want to first look at what the best financial path is for you to take. Compare getting a lease vs. buying with our finance team to learn about the benefits of both, see which you can afford, and which can be tailored to your needs. If you find yourself asking “should I buy or lease,” trust the South Houston Nissan finance team in Houston to help you get the answers you need.

Benefits of Buying

  • No Mileage Restrictions: Leasing comes with mileage restrictions. If you find yourself driving through Pearland or out of Deer Park often, then you’ll want to purchase your next vehicle.
  • Total Ownership: When you buy a vehicle, it’s completely yours to do with as you please. This means no restrictions on how it’s modified, decorated, etc.
  • Customization: Looking for a model you can customize to better fit your style? Buying allows you to make any cosmetic and mechanical modifications you see fit.
  • Ability to Sell: Since you’re not locked into a lease agreement, you can opt to sell your vehicle whenever you choose.
  • Financing Options: While leasing isn’t a massive headache, the car financing process is more straightforward, and generally open to those without perfect, or great, credit scores. When buying, you can also refinance your loan to lower your interest rate and monthly payments.
  • Less Cost Over Time: Though buying a new car is more expensive in the initial period, it is less troublesome in terms of cost over time as you work towards paying off your loan. With total ownership, the vehicle becomes less expensive to own the longer you have it.

Benefits of Leasing

  • Lower Payments: Whether it’s monthly payments or down payments, when you lease a vehicle those costs will be much lower than buying.
  • Less Sales Tax: In most states, leasing a vehicle drastically lowers sales tax. In some areas, you only have to pay tax on the amount you put forth in the down payment and for the monthly payments.
  • Trade-Ins: When your lease agreement is over, the process of getting your next leased vehicle is simple. Head to your local Houston dealership, pay any remaining fees, and drive away in your next vehicle of choice.
  • Great Coverage: Warranty coverage and maintenance is a breeze when leasing, as any issue that pops up under your warranty, as long as you don’t go over the mileage limit, is covered.
  • Options: Leasing allows you to stay in the newest models with the most up-to-date tech every time you lease a new vehicle. You’ll have tons of options and will be able to find the perfect model and features for you.
