SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Searching for a new car is already a daunting task that presents several options and potential choices. Another choice to add to that extensive list is to choose between leasing vs buying a car in San Antonio TX. Ingram Park Nissan wants to express how important it is for drivers to first establish what their financial and driving needs are before finalizing their decision. Both leasing and buying a car has advantages and downfalls, but ultimately a driver must weigh both options to find the best fit for their lifestyle. 


Buying a car is a solid choice for drivers who prefer consistency in their lives. Owning a vehicle offers longevity and freedom to personalize the driving experience. The initial cost of owning a car is usually higher, but drivers then have the ability to build equity, customize features of the car, sell it whenever they're ready for a change and travel more without having to worry about increasing mileage. 

Leasing a car is often the most underutilized option of the two, but it can actually be the option that makes the most sense for some drivers. If drivers don't like the idea of being stuck to the same vehicle for more than a year, leasing provides the opportunity to switch it up after each lease agreement is up. If the latest technology and newest models are what the driver craves, leasing is a great choice. Drivers won't have to fork over as large of an initial payment, but they will have to worry about monthly payments, limiting their mileage, avoiding significant wear and tear and incurring any penalties that break the lease agreement. 

Both buying and leasing are a personal choice that only the driver can decide on. It is important for drivers to establish their needs on and off the road and also to consider their current and future financial status. Will paying monthly installments or a larger down payment be more beneficial? Does the idea of paying off a vehicle and owning it sound better than taking out new leases for the latest, most exciting cars? The choice is the driver's to make.
