Things You Should Know About Leasing a Car

Leasing a Car

When the time comes to replace your current vehicle, you can be overwhelmed with the amount of choices there are to make. We often get a lot of questions wondering whether or not leasing a vehicle is a good option.  When customers are confused, we often take them through the following process to help them make a decision.

What Type of Driver are You?

Do you find yourself driving over 20k miles in one year? Do you like to customize your ride? Do you like to drive your vehicle until the wheels fall off (metaphorically speaking, of course)?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then leasing a car may not be the best decision for you. However, if the answer to all of these questions are no, then leasing your next vehicle could be a great option.

Now it is time to move onto the next step.

What Are Your Parameters?

When you come by dealership ready to lease a car, it’s good to know what type of car you would like to drive, how much you would like to pay each month, how many miles you plan on driving as well as how long you would like your lease to extend.

By manipulating these factors as well as an initial down payment, it is likely that we will be able to get you in the car of your dreams at the right price.

Here at Dick Dyer Toyota, our knowledgable sales staff is ready and eager to help. Whether you are interested in leasing a car or buying a car, we offer the best service and the best prices around. Also, make sure you check out our Lease Specials page for any current specials that we are running.
