Buying vs. Leasing the Toyota for Sale on Our Lot
Purchasing a New Toyota in Brockton, MA

As we’ll dive into in the next section, cars, especially the Toyota Camry, Corolla, Sienna and other models that are coming off of our lot, are being built to higher standards than ever. As a result, people who buy new vehicles are finding that they have retained their value better than ever before, completely shaking up the used car market. What that also means is that the question of whether or not to buy or lease the Toyota for sale that catches your eye has become more complex.

 

 

The key issue with buying versus leasing a car is knowing what you are paying for vs. what you are getting. When you buy a new car, even if you plan on taking out a multi-year loan for Toyota payment, you will still own the car outright at the end of the contract. As a result, your Toyota payment is more than it would be during a lease. The flipside is that you can either decide to sell your used Toyota vehicle to someone else or use it as a trade in because it will still be worth several thousands of dollars! 

However, some car shoppers see a Toyota for sale on a dealer lot and would rather not deal with the hassle of continuing to make payments on that vehicle, selling it, or being on the hook for longer-term repairs. They might opt for a two- or three-year lease of that same vehicle instead. The monthly payments are lower because:

  • You are not getting the Toyota vehicle at the end of the lease period. You deliver it back to the dealer.
  • When buying a new Toyota vehicle, what you are paying for is depreciation. Cars, trucks and SUVs lose value as soon as they drive off the lot, up to 30 percent in the first year. Then, the value begins to plateau over the course of the next several years. When you submit your Toyota payment, you pay the loss in value of the vehicle to the dealership.
  • You are also paying for peace of mind- with the shorter length of a lease, you are always under Toyota factory warranty coverage if something goes wrong under the hood or throughout the cabin. On the bright side however, when leasing a Toyota vehicle, you also get complimentary maintenance and service that extends for at least the first two years or 24,000 miles. Service luxuries such as Toyota roadside assistance, Toyota oil change, collision repair are offered here at Copeland Toyota of Braintree, Brockton, and surround MA areas! 

In addition, when leasing a Toyota vehicle, if you are a realtor or operate as a contractor, you may be able to take tax deductions that make it even more appealing on a financial level! Thus, lowering your Toyota payment monthly However, you should always speak to an accountant regarding decisions like these if you are an independent contractor or own your own business.
