Pros of Financing to Buy

The traditional car loan is a great way to pick up a new or used model from our dealership if you're the type of San Diego driver who plans on keeping the vehicle for a long time. With this option you get the benefit of flexibility in how you structure the deal to fit into your lifestyle. If you don't want to be stuck in a car loan for five years or more simply opt for a shorter term with the understanding that you'll have a slightly higher monthly payment.

If you want to keep your payments low, using a trade in and a down payment reduce the amount you're financing to allow you to pay off less over time.

Other benefits include:

  • Live payment free by keeping the car beyond your loan term
  • Modify the vehicle as you see fit
  • No worries about golf spikes, work equipment, or pets damaging the interior and paying a lease penalty

Pros of Leasing a New Car, Truck, or SUV

This option is great when you want as few worries as possible and you don't put a ton of miles on your vehicle. The benefits include:

  • Typically lower monthly payments than a loan
  • Always within the warranty period
  • A new vehicle every two years
