Benefits of Buying a New Toyota

Buying a new Toyota model is a great option for someone who:

  • Tends to drive a lot and wants the carefree ability to put on as many miles as they want without worrying about mileage limits.
  • Doesn't mind a little normal wear and tear to their vehicle, including scratches, small dents and every day occurrences that may happen to your vehicle out on the road.
  • Wants the ability to customize their vehicle to their liking, including both mechanically and cosmetically.
  • Wants the ability to sell or transfer the title of their vehicle whenever they please to whether it be ten years down the line or two.
  • Wants to build equity in their vehicle.
  • Knows they'll want to potentially drive the same vehicle for more than three years.

Benefits of Leasing a New Toyota

Leasing a new Toyota model is a great option for someone who:

  • Wants to only pay for the time that they're using the vehicle, meaning you'll experience a lower monthly payment and down payment for leasing your Toyota for three years compared to paying for the entire price over time.
  • Wants the ability to drive a new vehicle every few years without the hassle of selling their vehicle to a dealership or third party.
  • Doesn't tend to drive over 12,000 miles a year (or more with higher mileage lease options).
