Lease VS. Buy

Consider the Pros and Cons to Leasing VS. Buying a Vehicle at Coastal Volkswagen

When customers set out to find themselves a new Volkswagen, they are often filled with indecision about whether or not they should lease or buy. There are many factors that come into play when weighing the pros and cons, so our team here at Coastal Volkswagen is going to outline them for you. Once you've figured out what is best for you, use our online application to get pre-approved for financing, today!


Leasing is a suitable option for customers who are shopping on a budget and don't want to commit right away to buying. Your monthly payments will most likely be lower than a loan payment, and if you don't end up loving the vehicle, you can trade it in at the end of your lease term for a different one.

Another factor to consider is that you don't have to worry about the vehicle's depreciation of value with a lease. As long as you pay attention to the number of miles you predict you'll be driving, leasing is a great way to go for drivers who want to try out different vehicles and not be tied down with a long term car loan.


Customers who are ready to buy a vehicle, often do so knowing that it's an investment that they can enjoy long term. Although loan payments can be higher, once the car is paid off, it becomes yours to keep!

Value depreciation does come into play when the time comes to trade it in, but with owning your vehicle comes many benefits. You aren't tied down by mileage restrictions, and you are free to customize your vehicle as you please. If you're ready to commit to your dream car, buying is the option for you.

If you have any additional questions about leasing versus buying, feel free to visit Coastal Volkswagen and our auto experts would be happy to help!
