When You Should Lease

Many of our customers choose to lease a 2018 Lincoln MKC or Lincoln Continental for a number of reasons. If you're concerned about the notable first year of depreciation that new vehicles experience, then a lease might be right for you. While a lease doesn't translate into equity in your vehicle, it also doesn't mean being stuck with it at the end of your lease term. Anybody who likes to mix things up and enjoys being able to drive a different vehicle every couple years is likely to find leasing preferable to buying. A lease term typically only lasts one to three years, during which you're only responsible for paying toward the depreciation value of the vehicle. This results in much lower monthly payments when compared to financing. Did any of that sound like what you're interested in? If yes, then you're a good candidate for leasing.

When You Should Buy

Many customers are in a financial situation that allows them to make a more substantial investment in their vehicle. This gives you the opportunity to build equity in your vehicle and recoup some of your investment. Having the opportunity to treat your vehicle as a long-term investment is very appealing to many customers and allows them to be in a better position when the time comes to move on to the next vehicle. Additional benefits of buying include no mileage caps or restrictions on customizations and the ability to truly make your vehicle your own. If you're putting a lot of mileage on and enjoying making your vehicle personal and expressive with customizations, buying is a great route for you.
