Leasing or Buying - Jeep Grand Cherokee
The age old debate - Leasing VS Buying. There are advocates for each side. The reality is that in the end it really is personal preference based on exactly what you want and what you can financially afford.
However, there are some distinct advantages when you look at a Jeep Grand Cherokee lease.
Some people look at leasing, in the same way, they look at financing a vehicle. From the outside, there are many similarities but you should not overlook some of the key differences that can save you a lot of headaches and money when you lease a vehicle.
One of the most important factors is getting more car for less money. Think of it this way, when you are purchasing a new car you are basically financing the full price of that car. With a lease, the cost is based on the percentage of the car’s price.
Let's say you found a Jeep Grand Cherokee for $30,000. You would have to finance the entire $30,000 if you planned on buying the Jeep using bank financing (a car loan). If you choose to lease the Jeep you are only responsible for the difference between the car’s price and what the value of the car will be when you are done with your lease. You are not financing the whole thing at once. Let's say that the value of the Jeep is at 55 percent after a three-year lease. That would mean that the Jeep would be worth $16,500 at the end of the lease. You would be making lease payments on the $13,500 remaining and not the full cost of $30,000. Again, this means you are able to afford a much more expensive vehicle.
Another great option to consider when you are looking at leasing vs buying is the down payment. If you haven't saved up a lot of money for the down payment, a lease might be a better way for you to go.
There are many leasing options available to you. Some incentives are offered with no money down. Keep in mind these incentives usually require that you have decent credit. Also, the less money you put down toward a lease, it will usually mean you will have a higher monthly payment. That is actually the same issue with financing as well. The less up front money you have.....the higher your payments will be.
Are you sick of spending time and money on vehicle repairs? It never fails. It seems the minute your vehicle has passed the original factory warranty that is when something happens. Usually, something expensive and something that would have been covered by the warranty. It's called "Murphys Law" and it happens far too frequently.
That is one of the best things about a Jeep Grand Cherokee lease or any lease for that matter. The average lease lasts about three years. That is also the typical amount of time that you have on an original bumper to bumper factory warranty.
This means that your vehicle is typically going to be covered for all repairs during the time of your lease. Anything mechanically wrong with the vehicle should be covered. You still need to cover all the regular maintenance, but you can rest easy knowing that the rest of your vehicle will be covered in most cases.
As we have discovered, the average lease is about three years. This means that when your lease is up, you can trade the vehicle in for a new model. You can do this every three years. If you are someone who enjoys keeping up with all the latest gadgets found in the newest models, leasing might be the best choice for you.
Overall, leasing certainly seems to give you more bang for the buck without hassles and worry about mechanical problems. Of course, when you have a Jeep Grand Cherokee lease or any lease you do not own the car. You actually have to bring the car back to the dealership after your lease is up.
You will often be given the option of buying the same vehicle through special financing or you simply return the vehicle and set up a new lease with a current model. Either way, you are in control of your options.
