MANHATTAN, Kan., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Fall has arrived, and as lease contracts come to a close, the decision of starting a new contract or buying a car becomes imminent. Consumers looking to buy or lease a car in Kansas are finding benefits in both options from Briggs Auto. For consumers who are confused about the difference between the two, the auto group has made it easy by providing a close look at the pros and cons of buying and leasing. What the auto group found is that both choices provide useful benefits, so the decision is ultimately up the buyer.
Leasing provides advantages such as little or no down payments and significantly lower monthly payments. It also allows consumers to drive a variety of cars. Depending on the term of the lease, consumers can get behind the wheel of a new vehicle every two to four years. One of the biggest upsides to leasing is that the dealership takes the car back after the lease. Consumers don't have to worry about selling the car themselves, which can be difficult with such a fast rate of vehicle depreciation. Leasing can also work as an extended test drive. When the lease is up, the option of buying the vehicle is made available, and as payments have already been made, the price is typically more than reasonable.
There are also plenty of benefits to buying a car. For one, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Eventually the payments on the vehicle will cease, and the consumer is able to keep the vehicle. Consumers who lease cars all of their lives will always be required to make monthly payments. Another upside to buying is that the car can be altered both cosmetically and mechanically to provide a more personal and customized look and feel. For the most part, buying and owning a car takes away the worry factor that comes with leasing. There is no limit on the amount of miles that can be travelled, and if something stains the seats, it doesn't come with added cost.
Briggs Auto Group is made up of multiple automotive franchises that are spread throughout Kansas. Their dealerships —located in Topeka, Manhattan and Lawrence, Kansas—all offer consumers the option of both buying and leasing. All of their locations and their full new car inventory can all be viewed on the Briggs Auto Group website at www.briggsauto.com.
