Buy vs Lease near Plainview, NY

If you’re in the market for a new set of wheels but aren’t sure whether to buy or lease, Acura of Huntington is here to help. Since both paths have their own respective pros and cons, we’d like to cover the two sides of the coin so you can more easily determine which one better meets your needs. If you have any remaining questions or wish to schedule an appointment, feel free to give us a call during our business hours

Buying

Generally, when customers choose to buy a vehicle, they’re actually financing the purchase with a loan. After subtracting your down payment and trade-in from the sticker price, the remaining balance is then broken up by monthly increments to be made over a period of four to seven years, depending on factors like your credit score and preferred term length. Once everything has been paid off, the vehicle in question is yours to keep for as long as you wish! When you finance, you get to drive as much as you please, use the car as a trade-in in the future, or even hand it down to your kids when they start driving. Just bear in mind that older models require more maintenance as time goes on. 

Leasing

By leasing your prospective Acura, you’ll get to enjoy a brand-new car for less. Essentially, these contracts grant you temporary possession of a vehicle for about three years, during which time you just need to pay towards its depreciation. As a result, you won’t have to spend an arm and a leg just to experience the latest technology! Plus, when the agreement ends, you can choose to either hand in the keys and walk away or lease another model that your heart desires. However, it’s important to remember that leases come with yearly mileage limits, so you’ll need to watch how much you drive. Plus, unless you end up buying a car in the future, you’ll always be responsible for monthly payments. 

Which Path Is Right for Me?

Now that you’re a bit more familiar with how leasing and buying differ, we’ll help you decide which avenue is best suited for your circumstances. If funds are tight or you prefer a more flexible contract, then leasing is the way to go. Furthermore, this route is a wise move if you know you only need a car for a few years and don’t want to spend too much. On the flip side, those looking to invest in a long-term vehicle or who wish to drive as much as they want should strongly consider financing a purchase. The same goes for people who want to pay off the model and avoid having to make regular installments for a while. 

Acura of Huntington is ready to explain whether to buy vs lease near Plainview, NY. Get in touch with us today if you have additional questions or wish to schedule a test drive! We’re open for business and are here to help.

We were shopping around for an Acura and Acura of Huntington was recommended to us. We got in touch with Joe M who quickly handled everything over the phone. Once we arrived at the dealership we met with Mohammed who we had also spoken to over the phone. Mohammed was very nice as well as extremely helpful. As long time Nissan owners we were extremely pleased with the service we received from both gentlemen. Long story short we walked out with a beautiful 2020 Acura RDX-A Spec. We ABSOLUTELY love our new Acura! BYE NISSAN! Thanks Acura of Huntington Leslie G

We were shopping around for an Acura and Acura of Huntington was recommended to us. We got in touch with Joe M and he assisted us with all of our questions and concerns over the phone. He was a great help as we were new to Acura (we spent many yrs with Nissan). Once arriving at the dealership we were met by Mohammad (salesman) who we had also spoken to over the phone and we were now meeting in person. He was really sweet and made sure everything went smoothly. We left Acura that day with a beautiful Acura rdx A-Spec. We've now had our car for approximately a week and we absolutely love our new car! We will DEFINITELY be back and no more Nissan's for us Thanks Acura of Huntington Leslie G

Mr Kevin Luby knows how to treat a customer. His friendly demeanor and product knowledge was demonstrated throughout the sales experience. Usually I am busting to leave when going through this process but felt comfortable here. He has patience and explains everything very well and answers all the questions without going off on tangents. When we picked up the car, all paperwork was in order and he guided us through all the features of our PCO RDX. Well done! We also met with the Finance Manager, Ms Anneliese Maue who took us through all the after sale considerations. After brief discussion about the initially offered rate being too high, she paused and said she would work on it. And as promised she did, the next day we were surprised and extremely satisfied to receive a very low rate to seal the deal. Overall, we were pleased with this car buying experience and dealing with such talented and professional staff at Acura of Huntington. Thank you.

Dennis Del Rosario was the first person to greet us when we arrived, and he assisted us at every step along the way. From showing us our options, taking us on 2 test drives, and making the leasing process clear and understandable, as this was our first leased vehicle, Dennis made it easy! We made an immediate connection, and although Huntington Acura was not the closest Acura dealership, we were determined to stick with Dennis! He was honest, fair and knowledgeable!

Robert Rodriguez at Acura in Huntington was amazing in every way. He went far and beyond his call of duty to go over every little detail in the car. He understood our situation and tried to assist in a meaningful way. We were touched by his kindness, patience and thoroughness. He painstakingly understood our needs and wants in a car. He then laid out everything very clearly regarding pricing and extras in the car so that there were no surprises and it was easier to make a choice. He made the whole process of buying the car so smooth, took care of all paperwork for insurance and registration before the pick up. Before pick up he went over and explained every control, personalizing settings and explaining anything that might have been accidentally left out. I had enough time to ask questions and clarify. He also went over what to expect during service visits. I am so glad we went with Acura and had Robert to assist us through this process. They did a terrific job!

When purchasing my daughter her vehicle I was unsure as to what was the best car on the road that would meet our needs. I had looked at multiple vehicles that claimed to be very safe and have the best possible ride. I decided to stop at Huntington Acura and was immediately greeted by Mohammed. He was extremely knowledgeable about the vehicles and was very accommodating with no pressure at all. He explained how all of the vehicle options worked as well as the safety features, which was really the key to purchasing the Acura. He was very accommodating when we discussed pricing and brought out his manager. Normally that means someone to push hard to close the deal but in this case it was different. Joe was very friendly and was more concerned about making sure it was the right vehicle and a win-win situation. He was also very accommodating when figuring out the best pricing structure. All in all this was the best experience I have had at a dealership and my daughter absolutely loves her new 2020 RDX. My wife and I can’t wait until she gets back home from college so we have the opportunity to drive it again.
