Walnut Creek Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is the #1 CJDR Leasing Store in the Bay Area and leases over a third of our vehicles! Many of our
customers visit our store planning to purchase their new vehicle, but then
choose to lease after learning about the many benefits of leasing. Here are the
top 3 benefits to leasing over purchasing:
- Lower Monthly Payment: When leasing, you are only paying the difference between the vehicle's price and value at the end of the lease. This means that your lease payments will typically be lower than loan payments, and many leases have affordable payments with $0 down! This also means that in many cases you can get into a vehicle with more technology/safety/convenience features for the same payment!
- Option but not Obligation to Purchase Vehicle at Lease-End: At the end of the lease, you can choose to purchase your vehicle for a predetermined price set by the bank, or you can simply return the vehicle. With technology changing so fast, many customers choose to lease so that they have the option of upgrading to a newer vehicle and taking advantage of new technology and safety features in a few years. Who knows? Cars might be driving themselves in 3 years! And if you fall in love with your vehicle, you can simply purchase it at the end of the term!
- Predictable Total Cost of Ownership: Most customers opt for a 3-year lease which means the vehicle is covered by the factory bumper-to-bumper warranty for the entire duration of the lease. Bumper-to-bumper warranty = no headaches. Many customers choose to pair this with a maintenance plan that covers scheduled service visits for the 3 years, saves them money, and minimizes their out-of-the-pocket expenses during their service visits.
