Buying a New Lincoln Model

Our financing center can help you secure an auto loan so that you can buy your dream car and take it home for good. Once your loan is paid off, the car is yours. Period. You're free to drive it as much as you please, modify it, work it hard, sell it, trade it in towards another new car -- the world is your oyster, as they say.

Buying Pros

  • No monthly payments once your loan is paid off
  • No penalties for customization or excess wear
  • No restrictions on how many miles you can drive
  • Freedom to sell or trade towards another vehicle

Buying Cons

  • New cars tend to take a sizable depreciation hit when they leave the lot
  • Monthly payments are typically larger than lease payments

Conclusion: If you want to hold onto your car for a long time and do with it as you will while you are its owner, the freedom of buying your next new Lincoln model near Clinton Township may appeal to you.

Leasing a New Lincoln Model

Leasing a car is essentially like borrowing it for a few years and then bringing it back to our dealership in roughly the same condition in which you found it, barring a bit of normal wear and tear. Leasing gives drivers the opportunity to drive a brand-new car every few years and enjoy the benefits therein, typically at a much more enticing price.

Leasing Pros

  • Lower monthly payments
  • No need to fret about trade-ins; simply bring your car back at lease-end and start the process anew
  • Always up to date on technology and safety features
  • Car is under warranty for the duration of the lease, helping you save on service

Leasing Cons

  • Mileage restrictions
  • Fees for excess wear and tear
  • Value of the car cannot be put towards a new car

Conclusion: If you love driving brand-new cars around Troy, MI and you don't tend to rack up many miles over the course of a year, leasing could prove to be the more attractive option. Whether you choose to continue the leasing process with another new vehicle or you decide you want to buy a car that you've leased, this path offers numerous possibilities.
